    That looks like an awesome location - do you have more info on camping on that island? Can it be accessed without a boat, since you said it's not really an island? Are any permits or anything needed?

    I've been really really wanting to hang on a beach before it starts to cool down, and that looks like a great spot to do it!

    There is a small road that is traveled by DNR on 4 wheelers that you might be able to walk. I think that it would be a mile or two of a walk though. Dameon has walked it before, I'm sure he will chime in with more details on that.

    Nope, It's just a cool hang out spot on Lake Murray, SC. I go there all the time. It can get busy on the weekends.

    Any thoughts yet on a weekend for a swamp hang? If possible to avoid 10/3 (Coilumbia YMCA Indian Guides campout) or 10/17 (hosting daddy/daughter dance) would be greatly appreciated!

    For sure. Keep an eye on the calendar. We will be posting our hangs there from now on.

    Whoops! Should have been Columbia YMCA...My kids and I participate in the YMCA Trailblazers which is the older kids division of the YMCA Indian Guides / Princesses. If you've never heard of it, it is a program somewhat similar to scouting but the child and parent participate together. Younger kids group is from 5-K through 3rd grade. (or older if they want to stay!) Older kids start at 4th grade and go up for as long as they want to stay in. October 3rd is the Fall Longhouse (campout) for the younger kids at the Y camp in Lexington. We (Trailblazers) host pellet rifle shooting, basic orienteering and other activities for the younger group at their campout.
    Our (Trailblazers) group just got back from rafting on the Nantahala where I hammock camped for the first time! We have trips to Scottish games in Charleston, camping at James Island (with rockwall climbing), camping at Huntington Beach State Park, camping and participating at the Battle of Aiken and other fun stuff coming up.
    If you have kids (boys and/or girls) who would like to participate please e-mail me and we'd love to have you visit one of our meetings or outings!

    Mustardman,
    DNR has a gate on the road going out onto Bundrick Point / Island. It's about 1/2 mile from the gate to the "beach" areas. You can easily walk or bicycle out there. One problem is there is no parking at the gate and they have "no parking" signs posted back up the road a little ways.I live on the road that runs into the gate and would be happy to let you park / travel from there. As Sir RiceGravy stated though, during the summer this area gets a lot of boat traffic and camping.

    Is there any public parking close to where you can go hammock camping at Lake Murray? I don't know much about Lake Murray so directions would be good also

    Not really. I think you can go to dreher island and hang there, but I've never been. The place they're at on this trip is the same place we went a couple of months ago. It's a short boat ride from one of the public landings.

    There are several tent camping sites scattered throughout the camping area at Dreher Island, designated by "T" and the number. I hung on T-15 in June. I'd do it again. Also T-1, 2, and 3 looked good.

    How close are they to other sites? The last time that I was there the sites seemed a little close together. That was a long time ago. I have never hung there before.
