In the Great Pee Dee River Basin, there are approximately 4,669 stream miles, 10,864 acres of lake waters, and 17,676 acres of estuarine areas. The Great Pee Dee River flows across the North Carolina/South Carolina state line and accepts drainage from Thompson Creek, Crooked Creek, Cedar Creek, Three Creeks, and Black Creek. The river then accepts drainage from Jeffries Creek, Catfish Creek, the Lynches River Basin, the Little Pee Dee River, the Black River Basin and the Waccamaw River Basin before draining into Winyah Bay.
