Wake up and enjoy breakfast, before stopping by the Lake Murray Visitors Center which is located only a few feet from the historic Lake Murray Dam.

Tour this historic home and its museum to find out more about the construction of the man made earthen dam, the history of the lake, artifacts from Native Americans and the World War II Doolittle Raiders practice area.
Take in a great view by having a picnic lunch at one of the SCE&G Lake Murray Park sites, where you can sit at picnic pavilions or put your toes in the sand on either side of the 2 mile dam, and then take a walk along the Lake Murray Dam walkway to see the views up close.
