Wyndham Resort Chapel Branch Creek & Cove Paddling Opportunities (These services are offered on-site at the resort and are reserved for Wyndham Clients only)


Discover "Chapel Branch Creek" pre-dating history prior to 1825 where a Ferry boat was once established carrying passengers and goods across the Mighty Santee River.  With over 5 miles of shoreline to explore, the creek borders Santee State Park

as a tributary to Lake Marion.

Sheltered in a cove and out of the "big lake" you can paddle or pedal to "sandy beach point', get out and relax, and go fishing while viewing beautiful Lake Marion.  Or, journey "up the creek" to see unique small limestone caves on the shoreline and wetland wading birds alongside cypress trees lined with Spanish moss.  On occasion, you can also see a shy and elusive American Alligator. Paddlers have enjoyed the waters for over 50 years seeing South Carolina's unique geology and wildlife. 



On Site:  Walk into the main office lobby area to choose your service and follow the signage instructions.  

There will be a computer available to make and take your reservation.  It will also show you how to get outfitted and how to obtain your paddling vessel.   Rentals will be available on a walk-up basis as well.  Everything will be weather permitting.  If the weather is inclement, the on-line service will not take your reservation.  

Feel free to call us directly at 803-974-1262 if you have any questions.
