Lake Moultrie – Berkeley County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Berkeley County Photos | Lake Moultrie
The evening sets in over Lake Moultrie, which is located in Berkeley County. Lake Moultrie was created in the early 1940s by the Santee Cooper Project, which is a large hydroelectric and navigational development. The lake covers about 60,400 acres of land, and is 14 miles across at its widest point. It is named for Governor and Revolutionary War hero William Moultrie.
The lake is famous for its fish population, which has produced several world records. Since Lake Moultrie doesn’t ice over during the winter, it is a favorite year-round destination for fishers.
You can access the lake through public boat ramps or by the Palmetto Trail, which winds around the lake’s dike system. Lake Moultrie is connected to its neighbor Lake Marion by the Diversion Canal, which is also another beautiful lake to visit. Many visitors enjoy Lake Moultrie by picnicking at scenic Overton Park, or hiking and biking in the Sandy Beach wildlife area.
