Lake Wateree State Park
I am Travis Sellers, manager of Lake Wateree State Park. Growing up in Conway, SC, my family and I visited Myrtle Beach State Park regularly, and many of my childhood memories took place there. We would have picnics, swim in the pool, play on the playground and enjoy each other’s company. While visiting the park, my passion for the outdoors and wildlife grew. Once I got older, I realized that being a park ranger was something that I wanted to pursue as a career.
My favorite thing about Lake Wateree State Park is going out on the lake to fish and enjoy the sunset. Fishing is one of my favorite pastimes and the lake it is the perfect place to relax.
**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp is located just outside the entrance to the park store.
Lake Wateree fishing and boating can meet the needs of anyone looking for fun on South Carolina lakes. Numerous Lake Wateree fishing tournaments are hosted here every year, and the park provides a publicly accessible boat ramp, tackle shop and a refueling dock.
An ample number of Lake Wateree camping sites with water and electrical hookups are available. Many Lake Wateree camping sites can also accommodate large RVs. Although the lake serves as the focal point for Wateree, other day use activities are available including picnicking and a short, wooded nature trail.
