Local Attractions

Nautical Boat Club® at Irmo is conveniently located at Lake Murray Marina at Marina Bay – the ideal spot to take a break from your daily stressors. The marina features great amenities, including a Ship’s Store where you can pick up accessories, snacks, ice, and drinks as well as Liberty on the Lake Restaurant. Lake Murray itself is 50,000 acres of sprawling, sparkling water and 620 spectacular miles of shoreline, with a stellar reputation for boating, water sports, and bass fishing!

The Dreher Shoals Dam [commonly known as the Lake Murray Dam] is the structure that created Lake Murray. Built between 1927 and 1930, the dam is now hosted to a new walking pathway, directly across the top of the dam along S.C. Highway 6. The pathway is 1.7 miles each way, for a total walk of 3.4 miles full of beautiful views of the lake and of the downtown Columbia skyline 11 miles off!

Liberty on the Lake, located conveniently at Lake Murray Marina, provides patrons with creative twists on traditional American fare, served alongside signature Liberty Ales, unique draft beer and craft brews.

The Rusty Anchor and Catfish Johnny’s  Just a short boat ride from Lake Murray Marina, Relax and enjoy lunch, dinner, or just a cocktail with a beautiful view of The Lake.

Bomb Island is 12 acres of land in the middle of Lake Murray that serves as North America’s first purple martin [a species of swallow] sanctuary and its largest roosting site. Formerly known as Doolittle Island, the landmass was renamed thanks to WWII pilots’ use of it and surrounding islands for bombing practice. Today, Bomb Island is known for being “bombed” by close to a million purple martins that migrate there almost every summer; watching the birds return to their roosts every evening following a full day of foraging is quite an awe-inspiring sight!

Dreher Island State Park spans 348 acres across three islands and provides access to 12 miles of Lake Murray shoreline. A popular location and launching spot for national fishing tournaments, the park offers some of the Midlands’ best striped and large-mouth bass fishing spots, as well as boating amenities, hiking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, wildlife and bird-watching.

Timberlake Country Club features the only golf course on Lake Murray – a fun, challenging, and well-kept course with spectacular views of the lake all along the way. The club’s welcoming atmosphere and top-notch service keep members happy, whether you’re golfing, playing tennis, swimming, or dining at the Purple Martin Grill & Cellar.

"I love being part of the Lake Murray Boat Club Family. The managers and crew are excellent."

"My primary purpose for pursuing the Lake Murray Boat Club (LMBC) was to create memories of Lake fun for my kids (ages 3, 5, 7). It has proven to be a great investment in them. LMBC provides top of the line boating options, all the swim-fun equipment, & has continue to 'guide' me in the process of making the most of my membership. Compared to the expense & hassle of owning 1 boat, I'm able to enjoy many different kinds of boats! Even during cooler weather, we've enjoyed cruising the lake & docking at places to explore. All of the staff are quite accommodating & friendly. My kids have already become a little partial to some of the dock staff (my 3-yr old daughter is always asking for Carson lol). I would recommend LMBC to anyone. Be sure to check out all the information on their website, as well as pics of the boats available -- they really are those boats!! :)"

"Our experience with the Lake Murray Boat Club has been 5 stars so far. Our largest concern was availability of boats when we wanted them and so far we’ve had lots of success! The boats are all extremely well kept and the convenience of the club has been even better than we anticipated. There’s nothing like parking at the marina and being on the water a mere minutes later. The entire staff is extremely professional and super helpful for our novice boater family. We’re looking forward to many years of fun on the lake!"

"Lake Murray Boat Club is the best decision my husband and I ever made (besides getting married)! The club makes it easy to enjoy Lake Murray, without the hassle of boat ownership, and the cost is very reasonable. After talking with Lynne and Jon, we were very impressed with the business model and ease of the relationship between the club and its members. The dock hands are friendly and ready to assist, and there is always a helping hand back at the dock in case we need it. The security of knowing that we aren't on our own out there is very nice. The kids are all satisfied with the selection of water toys. We give Lake Murray Boat Club 5 stars!!"

"We have been members for about 2 years and we really love the valet boating concept . The boats are always clean and ready to go and I don’t have to clean them! We wondered if we could get a boat when we wanted it....since we have to share the boats with others. We may not get our first choice, but we always get a great boat with little notice. We love these guys....especially Tony, Shane and Mary!"

"Excited to join the Boat club and start exploring Lake Murray. Living at the lake and having the marina 10 minutes away is awesome. This lets us enjoy boating without the upkeep and expense of owning a boat. We just call ahead to the marina, walk up the dock to our fully fueled reserved boat, pick up our water toys and we’re off in 15 minutes. The staff has been super friendly and take care of everything. Doug and Leslie 2019 members"

"The Boats are great, Lake Murray is great and the folks at Lake Murray Boat Club bring it all together. To think I ever thought about buying a boat! Whew....that was a close one!"

- Chuck

"Great atmosphere and wonderful customer service! The staff is polite and professional, and the boats and equipment are immaculate and well maintained. I would highly recommend joining for anyone before they decide to go and purchase their boat. All the fun and enjoyment without the cleanup, maintenance, or storage part of boat ownership."

- Brian

"We have been members now for several years and have loved every moment. The staff is very helpful, the boats are immaculate, and the memories we make each summer are priceless! We owned our boat but now prefer the ability to use a variety of boats without ever having to deal with maintenance. I recommend this club to all my friends!"
