Wateree River

The Wateree River is the continuation of the Catawba downstream of Lake Wateree. Paddling the first 8 miles of the Wateree will take you across small shoals as you descend the fall-line. Near Camden, the Wateree turns into a very windy, meandering coastal plain river with large floodplains. The Wateree is relatively undeveloped providing opportunities for remote paddling experiences.
