The calm waters of the Catawba River offer a great adventure for paddlers of all skill levels.
Begin your journey at the Fort Mill Dam and float down to Riverwalk along 3.5 miles of slow-moving water with two small Class I rapids.
For a change of pace, paddles can also put in at Riverwalk and embark on a 2.75-mile trip that gets jump-started with the Class I/II rapid just below the launch. The trip continues to a second Class I rapid just before taking out at River Park.
The landing is open to the public year round. Visit the City of Rock Hill for more information.
Several local companies offer tours and rentals:
