What’s a lake without some fishing! Lake Murray is known for fishing. The lake draws many tourists and fishers for the FLW Forrest Wood Cup Championship, which is the largest bass fishing tournament in the world. The championship has been held only twice before (2008 and 2014) and luckily enough, the third hosting will be held this year in August! If you are in the area, this is an even you do not want to miss! The championship is also featured on National TV if you would like to view it from the comfort of your home.
Sit back, relax and have a Martin (you could have a Martini too if you wish!) Lake Murray’s Doolittle Island is home to the Purple Martin sanctuaries. The largest in North America. Every summer, hundreds of thousands of purple martins nest on the island and boaters have made it a ritual to witness the martins return to the island each evening. Lake Murray also hosts some other majestic wildlife including the Great Blue Heron and the Striped Bass. The state record fish are the white bass, the white crappie and white catfish.
Why not spend a day on the lake. Lake Murray offers a range of boating activities for everyone. Whether you want a run on the speed boats or a relaxing time sunbathing, there are a variety of options to choose from. Kids will also have a great time sliding down into the lake from the boats.
Lake Murray has dozens of marinas, ramps and boat landings where you can dock your boat.
