HAMILTON BRANCH STATE PARK
Hamilton Branch is located in the western Piedmont of South Carolina on Strom Thurmond Lake, a popular fishing, boating and water recreation destination.
The park covers an entire 731-acre peninsula that provides ample shoreline for fishing. It's also the reason why most of the park's campsites are lakefront and spacious. The park's rolling terrain supports a variety of wildlife and provides an excellent setting in which to see the natural beauty of the Savannah Valley region.
