Lake Murray

Lake Murray draws thousands of visitors each day and is often referred to as the “Jewel of South Carolina”. This recreational paradise provides some of the most scenic landscapes and picturesque sunsets you’ll ever experience. A few great spots to witness the sunsets are at Liberty at the Lake restaurant, Dreher Island State Park or walking across the Lake Murray Dam.

Whether you are passing through or spending a few days in and around the lake, take time to travel over the Lake Murray Dam; it is awe-inspiring. Taking this trek or stopping at one of the convenient parks on either side of the Lake Murray Dam will offer the best vantage point of the 5 famous towers, landmarks associated with Lake Murray.

Lake Murray attracts thousands each year to nationally sponsored fishing tournaments, including the FLW tour, The National Bass Circuit, Bassmasters and the Oakley Bass Tournament, just to name a few. Lake Murray is home to the 2014 and 2017 Forrest Wood Cup. Lake Murray was just named the #2 lake in the Southeast by Bassmaster and has been voted a top 10 place to boat and live by Boating Magazine.

The largest event held on Lake Murray is Lake Murray's July 4th Celebration. Voted a top 10 event by the Southeastern Tourism Society, it is no wonder it is a big tourist draw. The sky sparkles with fireworks launching from two locations around the lake.

Lake Murray is a boating paradise for all type of boaters. Whether its canoeing, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding in its calm waters, navigating sails through cutting winds or leisurely cruising in a power or fishing boat, Lake Murray is the place to be!
