Dreher Island State Park

Villa and Campground Guest registration has been moved to the new Visitor Center (formerly the Tackle Shop) approximately ½ mile inside the gate on the left as you enter the park.

Out into the lake but not far from the city, Dreher Island State Park is a great place to get away from it all. Only about 30 miles from downtown Columbia on the shores of big Lake Murray – one of the best-known largemouth and striped bass fishing destinations in the South – the park consists of three islands linked to shore by a causeway and two bridges. In addition to woodsy hiking trails and lots of places to fish from shore, Dreher Island offers picnicking, camping and lakeside villas. A tackle shop and boat ramp also is available. The park has long been popular with recreational boaters and fishermen, and has been a launching spot for major national bass tournaments.
