I am looking for information on where to park when putting in near the dam. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am coming from the Columbia area.

Is there any updated information regarding possible releases through the Pitts Park area?

Is the USGS gauge at Ware Shoals of any use for this stretch of the Saluda? A dam is downstream of the take-out, and this gauge is downstream of the dam. The gauge will be measuring water over the dam plus water running thru the turbines.
