Kayaks & Paddle Boards

Kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding are popular activities at the Anne Springs Close Greenway.

  • During the winter months, visitors are welcome to bring their own non-motorized boats for use on the Greenway lakes. 
  • Gas-powered boat motors are prohibited on the Greenway.
  • No reservations required. Boats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, Saturdays & Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through October, 9:00am. - 5:00pm.

Fishing clinics are offered throughout the year to the public. Fishing is offered exclusively to Greenway members at the Anne Springs Close Greenway. Lakes Haigler, Crandall, Frances and Katherine and Stumpy Pond are stocked with bass and catfish. 

Rules & Guidelines

  • Use of live minnows as bait is prohibited; minnows that escape and mature into shad reduce the quality of the fish population. All bass smaller than 12 inches in length must be released; please keep all bream that are caught.
  • Fishing is restricted to members only, and a South Carolina fishing license is required.
  • There is no fee for members to fish.
