There were 7 originally to go for the 3 days. It turned out 3 of us did all 3 days. One of us an over night and 2 joined us for a day with one showing up Saturday and the other Sunday. I did 34 miles with 15 of those on Saturday. The nights were in the high sixties, and the days partly cloudy often with a breeze with the highs in the low eighties. Great weather for sleeping in my hammock. It didn’t rain until I pulled into the driveway at home Sunday.
The lake is in the foothills of the southern Appalachian mountains, and is always about the coolest location for summer paddling in SC. Lots of powerboats on Saturday, but not so much on Sunday. You can get some fun rough conditions from multiple power boat wakes coming together where you are paddling. We paddled the two miles across the main pool and up the Toxaway arm of the lake. We camped at one of the Foothills Trail campsites not far from the trail’s suspension bridge. Wonderful sounds of running water and the summer insect chorus to put you asleep.
I am posting photos with captions so you can paddle along.
