From the Appalachian Mountains, the Catawba River south through the Carolina Piedmont, where it becomes the Wateree River and eventually flows out to the Atlantic Ocean as the Santee River. From the earliest Native Americans to present day kayakers, people have always been drawn to the power of the Catawba River. On your Catawba RiverVenture you will explore several areas of the river that tell the stories of how the Catawba River has shaped the land and our history, and how we are still connected to the river today.
