Lake Murray: This 50,000 acre man-made lake with 525

miles of shoreline, is the largest lake in the Midlands

one of the largest in the state. It is operated by South

Carolina Electric and Gas Company and is known

for striped bass fishing, summer water sports, and wonderful homes.

Public access is available through public parks near

the dam, public boat ramps and marinas, and Dreher

Island State Park. Another great attraction of the

lake is the Purple Martin Sanctuary at Doolittle

Island. The island is North America’s first officially

designated Purple Martin sanctuary. On summer

evenings, boats gather at dusk to watch the spectacle

of thousands of Purple Martins coming to roost.
