GENERAL QUESTIONS

  • How do I make a reservation?
    • Before making a reservation, check our calendar for available trips and dates. If there is a trip you want to make a reservation for, contact us via email, phone or our request for information form. Have a few dates in mind and how many people might be in your group.  We will contact you if we have availability.
  • How far in advance do I need to make a reservation?
    • The larger your group, the sooner you should make a reservation.  We require at least 24 hours notice for reservations. We are usually booked by Friday for our weekend trips. 
  • What should I wear?
    • Wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting wet and/or dirty. Closed-toe sandals or water shoes are ideal.  Wear whatever clothes you will be comfortable sitting in for a few hours. Always remember to wear SUNSCREEN!
  • Are Riverwalk and River Park the same place?
    • No. Riverwalk is located off Cherry Road and is the put-in location for tubes.  River Park is located off Red River Road.  Both are public kayak and canoe launch locations.
  • Can anyone use the launch and take out locations you use?
    • Yes! The Lake Wylie Dam is a public access location in Fort Mill, SC.  Riverwalk and River Park are both owned by the City of Rock Hill and are open to the public.
  • Why don't you offer trips during the week?
    • The Catawba River is a dam-controlled river and the water levels during the week are often unpredictable.  Duke provides a recreational release Fridays-Sundays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. to give kayakers, fishermen, etc. a predictable flow. We base all of our trips on water levels.
