Contact Sunrift Adventures in Travelers Rest. They should be able to help you.

I was thinking of Sunrift, but wasn't sure how I'd be able to transport the kayak(s) from there to the lake....I was hoping to find a rental place already on the water. Any ideas?

I believe Table Rock rents both canoes and kayaks.

If you are able to transport, there is a popular spot to put in where West Georgia Road crosses the Reedy River just north of Simpsonville. Great area of the Reedy to kayak.....should be especially good this coming weekend after all the runoff from the rain.

We have a canoe and transport. And live in Simpsonville. Can you tell me more about this place on the Reedy? Is there parking there, etc.? Would it be ok for a canoe or is it too rough?

Get on West Georgia Road headed west. After you pass Greenville Tech's campus on the right, there is a entrance to a new hospice also on the right. Immediately past that is a large gravel / dirt pulloff area right at the river. This is the spot. Alot of people put in here. South of here the river has some good rapids....better for kayaks, but could probably work for a canoe depending on your skill level.
