My husband loves to kayak and believe me, it's hard to find spots to put-in. You can put-in on Route 9 just west of Lancaster. The spot is in the westbound lane of number 9 and is kind of hard to spot. It is located just past Grace St perhaps five miles from the intersection of 521 and 9. It is a little dirt road that takes you under the bridge (number 9) to put-in. From there you can go to the Fishing Creek Access (about a 5 mile trip). It's easy since it's downriver but takes about 4 hours to do (depending on conditions).

I have a link to a web-site that may help you:

I forgot to mention that Lancaster is in Lancaster County not York County. The route I mentioned earlier is about 10 miles south of Landsford Canal (also in Lancaster County on Number 21).

The Fishing Creek Access is a very long, narrow lake that has another access on the southeast end as well. It is the first lake north of Lake Wateree on the Catawba (that would be considered the lower Catawba River Basin). If you like to kayak on lakes, Fishing Creek Lake is nice.

I hope that helps.

To get to Riverwalk, take I-77 to Rock Hill and exit 82 A at Hwy 21 (Cherry Rd.) and head east. Travel about a mile or so and Riverwalk will be on your right just before you get to the Catawba River bridge.

Riverwalk to Gaffney is a nice hour drive. I drive it everyday for work, not kayaking.

I kayak and put in at the Damn and go to the waterfront park in Rock Hill. I turn down Celanese rd (I think it is Celanese, google maps says celriver rd/state rd 50) THere is a park down on the left that alot of people use for kayaking. I have not used it this year but we did several times last year.

Try these guys - I have not used them yet, but have heard great things. They will pick you up for the return trip I believe...

Good luck!

The best place BY FAR to Kayak is at the Anne Springs Close Greenway. There are tons of places to do it. It's right off of Springfield Parkway across the street from Springfield Golf club. They also have like 30 miles of trails if you like to hike.
