Enjoy a beautiful day on the Yadkin River.

The 215-mile Yadkin River is one of the longest rivers in North Carolina. The Yadkin Basin is full of history, and has been the site of human civilizations for at least 12,000 years. Daniel Boone hunted here, and a major Indian settlement is thought to have existed here; later, settlers used the river for trade.

The easy tempo of the Yadkin River is the perfect setting for a day of fun and relaxation.
