River Tours!
Please join us for our final trip of the summer on the Yadkin River!

Saturday, August 9th - Yadkin River

The Yadkin River is one of North Carolina's longest, starting near Blowing Rock and becoming the Pee Dee River in South Carolina. The mighty Yadkin has stories to tell – of Native Americans, gold mines, textiles and hydro dams. Like many, your impression of the Yadkin in the Piedmont may be from crossing it on US 421 where the river is often muddy and slow. We will paddle upstream in beautiful clear waters along a peaceful section near historic Rockford in Yadkin County, passing the confluence with the Fisher River. More information
