An overnight trip taken on 5/26/2001 and 5/27/2001 from Fair Bluff NC through Nichols SC, to a take out just upstream from the junction of the Lumber and the Little Peedee Rivers in South Carolina. The put in is at the side of the River Bend Outfitters shop in Fair Bluff, which is just past the bridge over the Lumber, on the left side of the road. Vehicles can be left in the parking area off the main street in front of the Outfitters, and shuttle services can be arranged at the outfitters. Canoe and Kayak rental as well as limited equipment and supplies are available at the outfitters, so plan on bringing what you will need. Take out was on the Little Peedee, just upstream from the Little Peedee-Lumber confluence in Marion County along SC 319 (On the West side of  the US 76 bridge over the Little Peedee) , but there are other landings just downstream from the confluence. 

There many great camping areas along the river. Ours is shown on the button below. Click it to get a PDF version of the GPS route and map we made as we paddled this trip. This trip is very well described in the book Paddling South Carolina
