Beaver Creek – Camden, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Kershaw County Photos  |  Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek in Kershaw County, seen below, is not to be confused with the fork of the Edisto River called Beaver Creek, which is associated with the Pee Dee Indian Nation of Beaver Creek in Orangeburg County. Beaver Creek in Kershaw County drains into Lake Wateree. It is the site where Presbyterian settlers made their home in 1771 before relocating to a stagecoach intersection in present-day Lancaster County. The church they founded, Beaver Creek Presbyterian, still stands at that intersection and remains active today. The congregation’s first cemetery along Beaver Creek is still extant.

The bridge crossing Beaver Creek in the above image is the Senior Trooper Michael J. Rao Bridge. The bridge was named in honor of the late Senior Trooper in 2003. Rao was killed the year before when he was hit by a pickup truck while assisting a motorist. A veteran of the United States Navy, Rao began his career with the South Carolina Highway Patrol in 1998 in Kershaw County.

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Beaver Creek, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!

Peter, this is a great shot. Was it taken from an airplane or a drone? Nice work, thanks for your contribution. At one time we did own a lot on Lake Wateree but those days are ancient history now.
