Welcome to Fishing Creek Lake, a 3,431-acre reservoir that’s located along the Catawba River. Perfect for fishing, boating, and recreation, Fishing Creek Lake borders four of South Carolina’s most beautiful counties: Chester County, Fairfield County, Kershaw County, and Lancaster County, which are all associated with South Carolina’s famous Olde English District.
While the lake is relatively quiet and undisturbed, there’s one new construction community in Lancaster, South Carolina where the Lake serves as its residents’ playground. In this article, we’ll touch on everything Fishing Creek Lake offers the community of Edgewater’s residents and their families and friends.
- A genuinely peaceful lake experience
Some South Carolina lakes, including Lake Wiley and Lake Norman, are pretty busy. But at Fishing Creek Lake—a truly recreational lake—it’d be rare to see more than 10 or 20 boats out at any given time. In addition, as of Spring 2023, Edgewater is the only community development built along Fishing Creek Lake, creating additional privacy on the water.
- Outstanding bass fishing
Another favorite feature of Fishing Creek Lake? As the name suggests, it’s perfect for fishing. Known for bass fishing and long considered one of South Carolina’s best-kept secrets, Fishing Creek Lake is also a great place to catch channel catfish, black crappie, and bluegill.
- Great options for boaters and kayakers alike
True Home’s Edgewater community of brand-new South Carolina homes also features a marina for easy access to boating along Fishing Creek Lake. The marina—which also allows non-residents to rent boat slips—offers easy, outstanding access to Fishing Creek Lake and all it has to offer.
Some residents prefer jet skis and other boats, but kayaking—especially in the warmer months—is especially popular. In fact, just off Edgewater’s stunning Lakeside Pavillion, residents and their guests can utilize a kayak launch to get their sessions off to a great start.
Edgewater’s Marina also offers kayak rentals for those who do not have their own equipment.
- The perfect location for water sports enthusiasts
Wakeboarding? Waterskiing? Tubing? Whatever your water sport of choice is, chances are you can enjoy it at Fishing Creek Lake. Since the lake is purely recreational and never crowded, nothing stops you and the rest of your group from finding a little space to throw on that life vest and have some fun on the water.
