Lake Marion (along with Lake Moultrie) was created in the early 1940s by the Santee Cooper Project. It covers about 110,000 acres of land in five SC counties: Berkeley, Calhoun, Clarendon, Orangeburg, and Sumter. It is home to Santee State Park, which is located just outside of Santee near I-26 and I-95.

The lakes are named for Governor William Moultrie and the Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion. They are famous for their populations of landlocked striped bass.
