On April 1, residents at Saluda River Club will celebrate the opening of the 2015 kayaking season! A fabulous benefit of living at Saluda River Club is access to the majestic Saluda River – a unique feature that is appreciated by many of the community’s outdoor-loving residents. The full season to enjoy this watersport runs from April 1 – October 31.
Residents of Saluda River Club have access to a total of five landings along the Saluda River, listed Upriver to Downriver:
- Mett’s Landing
- Saluda River Club Upper
- Saluda River Club Middle
- Saluda River Club Lower
- Canoeing for Kids (just before the I-20 bridge on right hand side)
Residents can choose to launch from Mett’s, SRC Upper or SRC Middle, while take-out locations include SRC Middle, SRC Lower or Canoeing for Kids (CFK).
Make reservations to enjoy the great outdoors!
Saluda River Club residents need to make reservations for kayaking trips at least 24 hours in advance through the Saluda River Club website. However, on Saturdays and Sundays only, it will be possible to sign up down at the Chickawa Outdoor Center and go kayaking on the same day – subject to availability. Note to resident watersports lovers: make sure to stop by to check if a time slot is still available!
So the next time when the weather is perfect, and you just cannot wait to get out on the river, know that it may just be possible to snag a time slot to go kayaking on the Saluda – almost on the spur of the moment!
Note: For all details, policies and guidelines regarding kayaking, please check the Residents’ section of the website.
