Lake Murray Beach Areas

Lake Murray has several beach areas located around the lake.  These beaches are popular for people camping or just visiting for the day.  The clear, clean water of Lake Murray makes swimming in the lake fun and enjoyable.  During the summer months, the beaches around the lake are enjoyed by many.

Please be aware there are daily parking fees now required throughout Lake Murray State Park.  These fees start at $10 per vehicle per day.  You can find more information on the parking fees on the website.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is arguably the best beach on the lake.  This beach is located on the east side of Lake Murray in its own day use area.  Since it is on the east side of the lake, this beach is sometimes less crowded than those on west side.  The beach here stretches for almost three-quarters of a mile.  There are restrooms and picnic tables in the Sunset Beach area.  This beach is day-use only so there are no campsites in the area.

Marina Beach

The Marina Beach is a beautiful stretch of beach within the Lake Murray Marina area.  This beach is highlighted by plenty of sand and plenty of shallow areas to walk and swim.  There is a playground and picnic tables right on the beach.  You will enjoy the shade of the nearby trees on those hot summer days.

Martins Landing Beach

If you are looking for a good beach near a campground, the Martins Landing Beach is a great choice.  Martins Landing is one of the best camping areas on the lake and offers up one of the best beaches.  You can also visit the Martins Landing beach just for day-use if you are not camping.  There are restrooms nearby.

Resort Lodge Beach

There is a small beach in the Resort Lodge and Cabins area.  This beach is located down by Lake Murray Watersports.  If you are in the cabin or lodge area, you can enjoy the water and beach here.
