**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.
