“The Santee River glides majestically silent and slow . . .”

-Robert Mills, architect & cartographer (1781-1855)

“. . . a regular Riviera for wintering wild fowl.”

-Archibald Rutledge, poet laureate of S.C. & writer for Field and Stream (1883-1973)

At the heart of South Carolina’s renowned Santee Delta, lies 5,801-acre Kinloch Plantation. Comprising 14 rice plantations along the Eastern Seaboard’s largest river delta, Kinloch is surrounded by a tapestry of prestigious waterfowl hunting estates and vast acreages of preserved state and federal land. Here, a unique convergence of salt and freshwater conspires with the land to create a sportsman’s Eden, where tens of thousands of migrating ducks touch down each winter. Come spring, schools of spawning shad leave the ocean to swim upriver – an ancient ritual unmarred by time.

Rich in history, Kinloch boasts a restored 18th century rice mill (listed on the National Register), as well as an authentic 15-room hunting lodge. Built in 1923, the lodge features murals painted by famed waterfowl artist Richard Bishop and stands where the original plantation house once was. An oak and magnolia allee leads to the historic site, which is surrounded by moss laden live oaks and flowering azaleas, and overlooks a picturesque 25-acre lake. Two guest cottages, a manager’s house, a foreman’s house, a cooking shed, a sporting clays course, offices and various farm buildings populate the property.

where a legacy of stewardship

and conservation lives on

Encompassing 2400 acres of meticulously managed waterfowl impoundments,

2700 acres of lush marshlands and islands, as well as

700 acres of verdant upland,

Kinloch offers an outdoor recreational platform like no other.

Known for its exceptional duck hunting, the plantation also harbors flourishing turkey and deer populations within a mosaic of field and woodland. There’s a reason why the families of Eugene duPont and Ted Turner have enjoyed and stewarded this remarkable property on the banks of the North Santee for a combined total of nearly 100 years.

where nature, history and sport converge

Located just 10 miles from the georgetown airport,

28 miles from the beaches of pawleys island,

and a mere 50 miles from the historic charm of downtown charleston,

Kinloch is the ideal retreat for family and friends – a combination of unparalleled wildness and seclusion, with easy access by plane or car. Rich in culture and ecological diversity, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of protected lands and waters, the Santee Delta offers a rare East Coast landscape of conservation and tranquility.
