Lakeside Marina & Resort is located on Lake Marion, which is part of the Santee Cooper Lake System. Lake Marion and its sister Lake Moultrie comprise 174,000 acres of water to create an outdoor paradise. There are over 450 miles of shoreline, which is home to lakefront communities, including the abundance of wildlife. Development around the lakes is carefully planned to work in harmony with nature to protect the environment. These two lakes are brimming with marine life and the lakes have gained legendary status for record game fish catches.
The lakes offer year round fishing opportunities. The weather is temperate, and the lakes do not ice over in the winter months. You can hook bream, catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, white bass and the famous freshwater striped bass from Lakes Marion and Moultrie..Arrive by Boat or Car
If you are arriving by car, we are conveniently located directly off of Interstate 95. Take the Santee Exit from I-95 (exit 98). The resort is just six miles from Santee. Follow Highway Six to Old Moncks Corner Road, take a left and follow the blacktop to the marina.
If you a traveling by boat, a 6.5 diversion canal joins Lakes Marion and Moultrie. On the southeastern side of Lake Moultrie there is a lock system that allows access to the Cooper River all the way to Charleston. What most people don't know is that the Santee Cooper Lake System is accessible from the Inter-Coastal Waterway and was partially created to encourage inland navigation from Columbia to Charleston. From the point the Santee River feeds into Lake Marion, to the Pinopolis dam, there is a one hundred twenty two mile system of marked waterways through which boats can navigate almost halfway through the state.
