• River: Tallapoosa River
The Tallapoosa River runs 265 miles from the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia, in the United States, southward and westward into Alabama. It is formed by the confluence of McClendon Creek and Mud Creek in Paulding County, Georgia. Lake Martin at Alexander City, Alabama is a large and popular water recreation area formed by a dam on the river. The Tallapoosa joins the Coosa River about 10 miles northeast of Montgomery near Wetumpka (in Elmore County) to form the Alabama River.
