The Tri-County Resource Conservation and Development (RC &D) Area Survey involved the archaeological and historical reconnaissance of three recreation areas near the Oconee River in Treut1en and Wheeler Counties, Georgia (Figure 1). The U.S.D.A. Soil Conservation Service, sponsor of this survey, has proposed that existing boating t parking and picnic facilities at each area be expanded to permit heavier public use.

The survey area totaled 9 acres t although the actual area proposed for future construction is much smaller. Field survey took place on January 24, 25, and 26, 1978. Five man days were spent in the field and approximately 8 additional man days were required for laboratory analysis and report preparation. Dr. Paul Fish was the principal investigator, James Rudolph was field director and author, and Paul Efland was field assistant. Gisela Weis prepared all maps and illustrations. I would like to thank Mr. Gene Bowers of the Soil Conservation Service office in Soperton, Georgia, for his assistance in leading us to each of the 3 survey areas.
