Catawba River – Rock Hill, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  York County Photos  |  Catawba River

The Catawba River, named for the Catawba Indian tribe, begins in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina. It enters South Carolina through Rock Hill, winds through the Piedmont, and drains into the Lake Wateree reservoir. There it converges with the Big Wateree Creek and becomes the Wateree River. The 217-mile-long course was declared a Scenic River by Governor Mark Sanford in 2008.

Reflections on the Catawba River


Contributor Teri Leigh Teed shares her experience visiting the Catawba River: “On the day before Halloween, I visited the Catawba Reservation and walked the woodland path to the Catawba River. Having the path all to myself was a joy, and it was a short walk to the river’s edge. This photo was taken near the circle cleared in the woods by the river. It is a peaceful place and a great honor to walk here.”
