Lake Marion – South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Lake Marion
South Carolina Lake Marion Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie were created in the early 1940s by the Santee Cooper Project. Lake Marion covers about 110,000 acres of land in five SC counties: Berkeley, Calhoun, Clarendon, Orangeburg, and Sumter. It is named for Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion, also known as the Swampfox. Both lakes are famous for their populations of landlocked striped bass. Because Lake Marion is so large, you will want to explore our guides to the many counties and towns that surround it. On this page, however, you can find out about the area as a whole – its history, its landmarks, what it offers for fun. You can also locate Lake Marion maps, current lake levels, transportation opportunities, and more.
