Description

Difficulty: Moderate, due to distance.

Crowds: Heavy. The Jamestown Landing and this section of the river is used heavily by motorized boats; however, the river is wide enough that you shouldn’t be affected. You’re likely not to see many other paddlers on this trip.

IMPORTANT: Requires staging 2 vehicles or arranging pickup.

Put In: Jamestown Landing, US-17/41 ALT, Jamestown, SC 29453. GPS: 33.303510, -79.679659 or 33°18’12.6”N, 79°40’46.8”W.

Take Out: McConnell’s Landing (note: some mapping/GPS applications call this “Pleasant Hill Landing), Forest Service Road 204-F, Jamestown, SC 29453. GPS: 33.244908, -79.520938 or 33°14’41.7”N, 79°31’15.4”W.

Fees/Permits: None

Current: Flows downriver in an southeast direction.

Tidal Influence: Yes, tide is approximately 3 hours behind Charleston Harbor tide table.

Precautions: Motorized boats go up and down the river near the two landings. While normally not a problem for paddlers, dam water releases could inundate sandbars.
