A Rich History

The beautiful Oconee River is the site of the crossing of Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto and Sherman’s Army.

Near Dublin, the river is home of the Rubust Red Horse Sucker, a fish once thought to be extinct.

The Oconee was one of the first Georgia rivers to support inland water navigation, and there are Mississippian-period mounds located along the banks of the river. In 1934, Smithsonian Institute archaeologist Dr. Auther Kelly discovered the mounds, calling them, “the most exciting and wonderful Indian mounds on the Oconee River.”

For an in-depth look at the mounds and Laurens County’s extensive Native American history, visit the blog of Scott Thompson, Director, Dublin-Laurens County Museum at Laurens County, Georgia

Fishing & Boating

South of Dublin, rock cliffs can be found. See cranes, wild hogs and other native wildlife!

The Oconee River offers anglers hours of fun. Fish for catfish, large mouth bass, and bream; and plan to launch from Buckeye Park Landing with a park and boat ramp on the river in East Dublin.
