The Camden County Boathouse at Cooper River is the quintessential setting for recreational and competitive rowing. Cooper River is an ideal water venue praised by athletes and international rowing experts for its sheltered, narrow, six-lane, 2,000-meter race course. Cooper River Park has hosted numerous state and national rowing events, such as the IRA, NCAA, and the SRAAs regattas, in addition to many local high school, college and masters regattas.

The Boathouse features six boat bays for storage of close to one-hundred racing shells. It houses seven local rowing clubs that train daily on the Cooper River, ranging from middle-school-aged to adults in their senior years. Daily rowing on the Cooper started in 2001 with one-hundred area rowers, and that number has now grown to more than 400 rowers practicing every day.
