over and over. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Frozen Creek Road Bridge to Lake Jocassee stretch is just one of them.

have you coming back for more. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
There's good hiking along the Foothills Trail; Round Mountain Gap is positively a splendid site to have a look at. Man, is there plenty of fun things to do in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Don't leave Toxaway Creek without first going for a hike along the Art Loeb Trail. A spree to Keowee-Toxaway State Park when you're here at Toxaway Creek is a tremendous idea, and people from Rosman love to come here.
