CAMPING AT LAKE MARION (SOUTHSIDE)
Only ½ mile away from South Carolina’s largest lake!
Camping at Lake Marion comes with a lot of perks, such as a phenomenal fishing opportunity. Since angling is not just about catching the biggest fish, take the chance to teach your budding fishermen the virtue of patience by the shores of Lake Marion. Some of the fish you’ll likely encounter include striped bass, channel catfish, and black crappie.
Should fishing sound interesting, wait until you hear about the boating opportunities. Lake Marion and the neighboring Lake Moultrie are part of a navigable inland channel leading to Charleston from Columbia. If you’re feeling eager to boat down to Charleston, you’ll get to pass through the Pinopolis Dam and Lock, which at 75-foot in height, is the largest single-step lock in North America.
While camping in a rental motorhome at Lake Marion, fun isn’t only limited to the water. The low country in South Carolina is relatively flat, so hiking through the countryside is fairly easy. The massive Santee National Wildlife Refuge has a healthy wildlife population consisting of alligators, waterfowl, and the Springflyer Dragonfly. It is also one of the largest wetlands supporting migratory birds in Eastern USA.
HIKING IN HISTORIC CHARLESTON
The great Historic City of Charleston is very close. Hike the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge - one of Charleston’s most iconic landmarks. After trekking the bridge, head over to downtown Charleston for a culinary delight tour of world-renown restaurants known only to Charleston. After eating to your heart’s content, walk and tour the largest historic district in the country. Tour beautiful historic architecture, gardens and mansions - only in Charleston!
Tucked in between two of South Carolina’s largest cities, you’ll be spoilt for choice over the number of attractions found around the lake. Since Charleston is just a short drive away, be sure to drop by for a chance to sample the town’s best beaches - Isle of Palm or Folly Beach. When packing your RV rental, don’t forget to throw in some sunscreen lotion.
If Folly Beach is your beach of choice, indulge in a self-guided tour to the edge of the island, which is locally referred to as “The Edge of America." Don’t forget a camera as the Morris Island Lighthouse is insta-worthy. If time allows it, make your way to the end of East Ashley Avenue for some snaps of the striking street graffiti.
