***If you are not camping and going to meet us for the paddle on 6/21. Meet us at 10AM at Venters Landing, 714 Kingsburg Hwy. Johnsonville,SC. Please be on time as we have many paddlers and we have a shuttle to run.***
We will again camp at River Rat's (NO RESERVATION NEEDED)as this really worked out well for us. The fee schedule will remain the same It is $5/person each night. It is also $5/person for each shuttle trip. We will be paddling on Saturday June.21st in an area near Johnsonville,SC. This is swampfox country. We will paddle from Hwy 41/51 (Venter's Landing) to Snow Lake. This part of the river is very different than the upper part that we are used to. It is a lot more winding and a lot less defined. There is much more canopy here and I did spot a gator about 1/2 mile before Snow Lake.I have contacted Terry Cook with Swamp Fox Rentals to guide us through this area. This section will be approx. 9 miles.
On Sunday if there is interest, we will do a 2nd paddle. We will set out from Indigo Landing at 9 am, and take out at Lee's Landing. This is only about a 6-7 mile paddle, but is totally different from the upper section. This should take about 4 hours to complete. I will call Barry when we are close to take out and shuttle will be there waiting. This again will be $5/person and will bring us w/boats back to Indigo Landing.
