The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources’ State Lakes are closing immediately to comply with Gov. Henry McMaster’s executive order relating to COVID-19.

SCDNR’s State Lakes offer fishing access to areas where public fishing is often not easily available.

A list and map of the 16 lakes is available at:

Ross Self, SCDNR’s chief of freshwater fisheries, said the State Lakes will be closed for the duration of the governor's order. SCDNR staff are posting closed signs on the properties, Self said.

“We hope the situation moderates soon so that we can reopen these lakes for public fishing again," Self said.
