Quimby Creek is accessed at the Ralph Hamer Sr. Landing on Cainhoy Road approximatly quarter mile west of the Hiway 41 junction. Hamer landing is a large concrete double ramp adjacent to the Quimby Creek bridge. Ample parking is available.

Upon launching at the ramp, you will paddle to the right in a northerly direction. Quimby Creek meanders through marsh land and old rice fields for about a mile and a quarter before emptying into the East Branch Cooper River at it's confluence with Huger Creek. You will see remnants of the old rice field dikes on the left bank as you approach the river.

On entering the river from Quimby Creek, you will paddle to your right in an easterly direction into Huger Creek. You will soon notice a change as the higher ground will start supporting more forestation. Huger creek will be bordered by a mix of marsh grass and scrub forest for a distance of about two and one half miles before passing under the railroad bridge at Huger Park. You can take out at Huger Park Landing on your left just beyond the bridge if you have positioned a vehicle or you can use the landing for a lunch break before beginning your return trip to Ralph Hamer Sr. Landing. Quimby and Huger Creeks are blackwater tidal creeks at the extreme end of the East Branch Cooper River. They both offer excellent pan fish and bass fisheries for the fishermen among us. The creeks are lined with flowering lilly pads in the warmer months. Wildlife consists mostly of wading birds, ducks, osprey and small alligators.

Quinby Creek

Huger Park, aka "Quinby Creek" This is on the east branch of the Cooper river. It is deemed freshwater by SCDNR, but it does have some tidal flow. I go here a couple time each summer to enjoy some great Crappie fishing. I caught my first juvenile gar here. The scencery is spectacular and narrow. This limits boat access at high tide.
