Lake Murray * Columbia Area Golf Course Communities (Chapter 6)

fun on Lake Murray Lake Murray is one of the premier lakes in the South for living and outdoor recreation. You may choose to live near the lake or live waterfront on Lake Murray or live in a community with lake access. I can assist you with any home buying need in the Lake Murray area.

Lake Murray is a 48,000 acre lake in the heart of South Carolina and only a short drive from downtown Columbia. The lake covers an area of 78 square miles with 649 miles of shoreline. The lake is known as a clean water lake and has relatively small water fluctuation levels.

Downtown Columbia is approximately 15 miles from the Dreher Shoals Dam on Lake Murray. Other nearby cities around Lake Murray include: Lexington, Irmo, Chapin, Prosperity, Newberry and Saluda.

The Lake Murray adventure means boating, sailing, canoeing, fishing, water-skiing, swimming, camping and just plain fun at one of the South's most scenic playgrounds. The Timberlake community near Chapin is the one subdivision with a golf course on the shores of Lake Murray.

Lake Murray striped bass fishing Lake Murray fishing is GREAT! The lake has hosted numerous fishing tournaments. Although the lake is home to a large number of fish species, the most popular are: largemouth bass, striped bass, bream and crappie.

As of late October 2008, the current median price for a waterfront home on Lake Murray is $611,950 (average square feet = 3330). The average waterfront lot price is $291,100.

I live on Lake Murray myself (in the Chapin area). Please call Mel Coker to discuss your Lake Murray area home questions. I can assist you with any home for sale on or near Lake Murray.
