Ashepoo River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Ashepoo flows swift and dark under rich and deep swamp woodland, exuding everywhere-you-look beauty. As it heads easterly toward the coast, the river widens and becomes more tidal, then enters former rice-field country, where the tall brooding swamp woodland gives way to lower marshy shores. Plantations border the waterway, keeping the shores undeveloped. Toward the end, the paddle nears historic Bonnie Doone Plantation.

Lastly, the now-wide Ashepoo River meets Horseshoe Creek, another paddleable waterway, before passing under the US 17 bridge to reach Joes Fish Camp, a private, fee boat landing. Since the paddle is affected by tides, especially the lower half, it is recommended you start your trip about 5 hours behind high tide at Charleston Harbor."
