Hamilton Branch State Park

Boaters and other outdoors enthusiasts can’t go wrong at Hamilton Branch State Park.

Occupying a peninsula on 70,000-acre Strom Thurmond Lake in the heart of South Carolina’s western piedmont, the park displays the peaceful beauty of the Savannah River valley.

All but two of the park’s spacious campsites are directly on the lake and Hamilton Branch’s shoreline makes it an ideal fishing spot. Ramps, picnicking and biking and hiking trails also are popular.

The park’s rolling, wooded terrain supports a large variety of wildlife, including fox squirrels and deer. Hamilton Branch is also known for its wide variety of trees, including pines, dogwoods with their white blooms in early spring, oaks, hickory and sweetgum.
