Lake Blalock - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Trip Dates: September 7, 2008
Nearest City: Spartanburg, SC
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: jeremywp

Description:

I got there at approximately 10:30am on Sunday Morning. There were a few boat trailers in the parking lot when I got there. Other than that I saw no one while getting in the water.

This is an easy paddle with exceptions to the speeding pontoons and fishing boats that pass you on occasion. Not a lot to see either, unless you enjoy looking into people's back yards as I saw very little undeveloped land along the 35 miles of shore. I paddled for approximately an hour and a half before getting bored and returning to the ramp.

Access to water: 5 out of 5
Accommodations and Facilities: 5 out of 5
Scenery: 2 out of 5
Overall Rating: 2 out of 5

Would I paddle it again? Maybe, if I had nothing else to do. I prefer Croft State Park or Lake Cooley any day.

Accommodations:

Safe, secure parking, Public Restrooms, Vending machine, Easy access to the Boat ramp (shared by larger boats).

Fees:

N/A

Directions:

Take Hwy 221 just off of I-85. Turn left on Fosters Grove Rd. Then Right on Sany Ford Road.
