Lake Wateree State Park

CREEPY CAMPOUT HALLOWEEN EVENT

Looking for a chance to unwind at one of South Carolina’s most beautiful lakes? Why not come explore Lake Wateree State Park?

Located on Desportes Island, Lake Wateree State Park has a tackle shop/ park store with refueling dock and public boat ramp that can meet the needs of most any fisherman or boater.

The lake is truly a fishermen’s delight with significant populations of crappie, bream, largemouth bass, catfish and striped bass. Lake Wateree hosts numerous fishing tournaments throughout the year.

The park does not lack in camping space either with 72 sites, including many that accommodate large RVs and all with water and electrical service. These sites go quickly in the summer months, so visitors should plan ahead.

Visitors at Lake Wateree can also enjoy the picnic tables, playground and the mile-long nature trail that runs through the peaceful woods.
