Congaree River SC mystery access
Posted by: yatipope on Mar-21-13 1:06 AM (EST) Category: unassigned
I live in Columbia and paddle the local rivers frequently but it always bothered me that the Congaree river has NO public boat access for 47 miles. It precludes decent length daytrips on the entire river. I am always checking Google maps like many do just checking river features and BINGO,..I found what is certainly a boat ramp that even shows two trucks with boat trailers off Old Swamp road about 18 miles south of the Cayce landing. It appears to be just about 500ft of dirt road off the paved Old Swamp Road. I know SOME might have their reasons for keeping river access information private but I pretty sure this discussion group doesn't include vagrants, drug pushers, nudist colony presidents or other such colorful characters so I feel pretty comfortable "advertising" here! Anyway,..I will be making a roadtrip down there this weekend to confirm its access for public use before I declare this a possible new alternative to paddle trip length. Hope I can report positive news.
