The lakes in South Carolina have contrasting views that make them unique such as Lake Jocassee in the upstate mountains and the swampy wilderness of Lake Marion in the lowlands of South Carolina. No matter where you are in South Carolina there is always a major lake in driving range.

All the lakes mentioned on this website have all the amenities you need for a great lake vacation or day trip. Also, all of these lakes have campgrounds and public landings for boating. Consequently, you can also find South Carolina state parks on most of these lakes.
