About Clarks Hill Lake

Clarks Hill is part of the J. Strom Thurmond Reservoir, located at the South Carolina and Georgia border. The popular location includes the 70,000-acre lake and its many recreational activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, hiking, and picnicking. The day-use area is equipped with several picnic shelters. A beach, restrooms, drinking water, boat ramp, and dock are also located in the same area. A variety of rustic cabin rentals are available as well.


The forest that shades the site in the hot summer is a mix of pine and hardwood that is filled with wildlife. If you visit Clarks Lake for fishing or any other activities the large facility provides, you may also see whitetail deer, bald eagles, wild turkeys, and waterfowl on the grounds and around the lake.
