Sunset on Lake Murray
Lake Murray is 41 miles long, 14 miles wide at its widest point, is 78 square miles and has over 600 miles of shoreline.
Lake Murray is fed by the Saluda River, which flows from upstate South Carolina near the North Carolina state line. The Saluda Dam is approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long and 220 feet (67 m) high. Bordering Lexington, Chapin and Irmo, and only a short drive from Columbia, Lake Murray is enjoyed by thousands of people every week.
The lake is a recreational destination with water sports such as fishing, boating, swimming and other outdoor activities.
There are multiple parks, recreational areas and fishing access locations. Multiple Lake Murray Public Parks include picnic, hiking, camping, playgrounds, swimming, fishing, and nature watching. There are both free and fee facilities. Dreher Island State Park, located in the Western part of the lake, provides lodging, camping, hiking, fishing, boat ramp and more.
