The Guyandotte River runs northwest through Lincoln County from Harts in the South to West Hamlin in the North. The River was originally called Seconee or “the narrow-bottom river” by native inhabitants.  The present name is derived the name Wendat, a Native American term for the Huron people.  European settlers reportedly spelled the name Guyandot.

Today the Guyandotte is considered a great paddle for kayaks, and is appropriate for the beginner.  You'll also see small fishing boats and this section of the River features several fishing tournaments throughout the summer.
