SCE&G Prepares to Open Lake Murray Public Parks for 2015 Recreation Season
CAYCE, S.C. – SCE&G will open its public parks on the Lexington and Irmo sides of the Lake Murray Dam on April 1 for the 2015 season. The boat-launching park on the Irmo side will be staffed through Sept. 1 (Labor Day). The beach/recreation area on the Lexington side will remain open through Sept. 12.
“Spring is here, and we’re looking forward to getting the boating and recreation season under way,” said Tommy Boozer, who manages the parks for SCE&G.
Operating hours will be from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday until May 4, after which the park will stay open until 8 p.m. Weekend and holiday hours are from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.

The public boat launch has two ramps and is open 24 hours a day. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Restrooms and picnic facilities are available.
