The Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is a member of the Water Trail Partnership. The Ocmulgee River Water Trail Partnership is a union of the 12 counties who share the Ocmulgee River from Macon, Georgia, until it joins the Altamaha River. The goal of the partnership is to provide unity on access to the River at appropriately distanced launches available to the public in a safe environment, passing along useful information that includes a map of available take out points on the River including distance between each point.

Additional projects of the Water Trail Partnership include fundraising activities and environmental issues including cleanup of sections of the River by local groups to preserve integrity of the River for all who come to enjoy it.
