Dreher Island State Park spans three islands, 348 acres and provides access to 12 miles of Lake Murray shoreline. Visitors will find recreational water activities, nature trails and some of the best striped and large-mouth bass fishing spots, all only 30 miles from Columbia. It has long been a popular location and launching spot for major, national fishing tournaments.

For overnight accommodations with views of Lake Murray, lodging reservations can be made in the park villas, or guests can camp at one of many lakefront campsites.
