Dreher Island SC 2019

This secret lake ? outside of Columbia SC is a campers dream. Lake Murray is a 50,000-acre man-made lake in the Midlands of South Carolina. It is operated by South Carolina Electric and Gas Company and is known for striped bass fishing ? and summer water sports ?‍♀️. Public access is through public parks near the dam, public boat ramps ? and marinas ?, and Dreher Island State Recreation Area. Each summer, an estimated flock of over one million Purple Martins ? fill the predawn and evening skies, establishing their seasonal roost at Bomb Island, located in the middle of the lake. The island is the site of the first official sanctuary in North American designated solely for roosting Purple Martins.
