Lake Murray is approximately 50,000 acres in size, and has roughly 650 miles of shoreline. It is 41 miles long and 14 miles wide at its widest point. The lake was named after William S. Murray, who was an engineer involved in the creation of the dam. The dam was built by Lexington Water Power Company in order to generate electricity. The official name of the dam is Dreher Shoals, but most people just refer to it as the Lake Murray Dam.

Lake Murray has become a major recreation destination in central South Carolina. Not only is Lake Murray a skiing, boating, and swimming paradise, it also boasts some of the best fishing in the nation, and numerous fishing tournaments are held on the lake each year. The lake is also home to impressive wildlife, including the Great Blue Heron, the Striped Bass, and millions of migrating Purple Martins, which are a sight to see each year. You don’t need a boat to enjoy Lake Murray. There are several parks and recreation areas, where you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, or cooking-out with friends and family.
