South Carolina whitewater, Twelvemile Creek

Pickens county, Liberty Highway to South Carolina 137 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     4 miles
There was a dam towards the end of this river with a large sign overhead that reads ''Danger Spillway''.

Ended up pulling the kayak upstream for an hour, hiked up to a road and asked some locals about the dam. There is a small path to the right, right at the edge of the dam that leads to the bottom.

River itself was amazing, just wished we knew about the dam so we didn't have a freak out moment and have to spend the afternoon
    fighting upstream. Says Bryon

The nature scenery of South Carolina and the playfulness of the water attract people from near and far. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in South Carolina are often
more forgiving than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, suitable for an afternoon trip. A good workout and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. There are some good stretches to  
paddle in this river system, the Liberty Highway to South Carolina 137 stretch is one of them. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The Liberty Highway to South Carolina 137 section of Twelvemile Creek is 4 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. If you're coming from Anderson it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down.

Briefly about the general area:
A trip to Keowee-Toxaway State Park when you're here at Twelvemile Creek is a magnificent idea, and there are plenty of people from Norris here at Twelvemile Creek.
