The Pee Dee River starts around Pilot Mountain and runs 232 miles before emptying into the ocean at Georgetown, South Carolina. It starts out by the name of the Yadkin River and turns into the Pee Dee where the Uwharrie River flows into it just below the dam at Tillery. In South Carolina it is known as the Great Pee Dee and along the river’s basin lies the most beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife to be found.
