Campground Description

Situated on Lake Murray, Dreher Island State Recreation Area consists of three islands linked to shore by a causeway and two bridges, allowing easy vehicle access to everything the park affords.
Two separate campgrounds (plus a primitive campground), three hiking trails, 13 picnic shelters, a boat ramp and two fishing tournament shelters, playground equipment, and a park store/gift shop are all available throughout most of the year. Call the park directly for seasonal availability. (803) 364-4152
Lake Murray is well known for national fishing tournaments and is regarded as one of the finest Largemouth Bass fisheries in the south.
Not into fishing? No problem. How about a nice hike through the pines and hardwoods on the Little Gap Trail? This moderately challenging 2.1 mile trail is a worthy trek for both seasoned hikers and casual walkers.
