Boaters and other outdoors enthusiasts can’t go wrong at Hamilton Branch State Recreation Area.

Occupying a peninsula on 70,000-acre Strom Thurmond Lake in the heart of South Carolina’s western piedmont, the park displays the peaceful beauty of the Savannah River valley.

All but two of the park’s spacious campsites are directly on the lake and Hamilton Branch’s shoreline makes it an ideal fishing spot. Ramps, picnicking and biking and hiking trails also are popular.

The park’s rolling, wooded terrain supports a large variety of wildlife, including fox squirrels and deer. Hamilton Branch is also known for its wide variety of trees, including pines, dogwoods with their white blooms in early spring, oaks, hickory and sweetgum.

Directions: From I-20: In Augusta GA. take exit 200. Turn rt. onto GA Hwy 104/River Watch Pkwy. Turn rt onto Hwy 28/Furys Ferry Road. Drive 19 miles. Park entrance will be on the left.
