2023 Calendar

Paddling Conditions

The route between Cooley Family Landing and Beech Springs Landing is passable, but water levels are low.

Paddling conditions on Berry's Pond at Tygerberry Landing are always excellent but a permit to be on the reservoir is required by SJWD.  You can get a permit for only $5 at the SJWD Administrative Office at:

Startex, Jackson, Wellford, Duncan Water District

307 Spartanburg Highway
Wellford, SC 29385

Business Hours:

Monday - Thursday
8:00AM - 5:00PM


It is not currently recommended to use Beech Springs Landing as a put-in due to the impassable log-jams downstream.

We welcome guests to the sites that are open to the public from dawn to dusk.

When leaving our properties, take home a refreshed attitude and leave only your stresses behind.
