It’s Almost Summer, Discover Boating on Lake Murray!
Picturesque boating on Lake Murray, SC is just part of the fun on this gorgeous lake. 41 miles long and 14 miles wide at its widest point, your eyes will never tire of the wonderful scenery. A popular fishing lake, Lake Murray covers an area of 78 square miles with 649 miles of shoreline. The reason the shoreline is so vast, is the lake was dug with many coves and fingers. My brother has a retirement home on the lake. What impresses me the most is how much fun it is to boat on.
Lake Murray is a reservoir in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It is approximately 50,000 acres in size. Although initially constructed in the 1930’s as a hydro- electric generating facility, today it serves as a place for retirement and vacationers (like me!) Lake Murray has become a major recreation destination in central South Carolina. When you are on the lake, you will see boats of every kind. My favorite kind of boat and the one my brother has, is a pontoon boat. That boat is pictured above and it’s known for it’s many varied abilities: one moment a party boat, the next moment a fishing boat, and the next a fun boat to pull tubers or skiers.
Do you long to vacation or boat on a lake but just aren’t sure what kind of boat to get? You can visit Discover Boating’s Boat Selector Page and they can help you determine all the different possibilities for you and your family. My brother knew he wanted a pontoon because he knew that he would using his boat for fishing, lake cruising, partying, many generations, and many people. A pontoon can handle all those tasks.
