The Below Dam park is a very nice little park that aptly sits below the Lake Strom Thurmond dam. You will be able to enjoy viewing the water as it spills out of the lake into the Savanah River. You can easily fish from the park which is very popular. There are also hiking trails in the area and a boat ramp for launching smaller vessels like kayaks and canoes. If you want to get out on the Savanah River below the Lake Strom Thurmond Dam, this is the spot to do so.
The picnic grounds are very nice and make for an enjoyable day at the lake.
Amenities of the park include:
- Boat ramp
- Picnic grounds
- Group shelter
- Fish cleaning station
- Fishing pier
- Kayak launch
- Canoe launch
If you are looking for a great day use area on the south side of the lake, you have come to the right spot. Stop in and enjoy the Below Dam Area and Lake Strom Thurmond.
The day use area is located just outside Clarks Hill, SC, west off US 221, just below the dam.
