Whitewater River

The Whitewater River is a freestone river that begins in North Carolina near Cashiers before tumbling into South Carolina. The river eventually drops into Lake Jocassee. Because this river is tucked away and hidden in some of the more primitive areas of both states, this river is surrounded by great scenery including two waterfalls that each have over a 400’ drop. You need to pay close attention to the river since there are many water falls and many kayaks.
