My son and I are both novice kayakers. The trip was 5.9 miles and took us one hour and 55 minutes of easy paddling. We were able to avoid the few filters along that part of the river.

Water level: closest gauge was Longs (LNGS1) 4.05 (Normal)

Mostly quiet paddling on the lazy and winding Waccamaw river.

In addition to the normal birds, fish, and bugs you can expect to encounter, we saw two pair of wild turkeys on the river bank and a pack of wild hogs swimming across the river.

Fees:

None

Directions:

From the Little River/North Myrtle Beach area: Take SC 9 N, Turn right on State Hwy 57 N, turn left on Little River Rd, continue on to Grainger Rd. The boat ramp is at the end of Grainger Rd.
