Paddle To An Isolated Cemetery Hiding On An Island In The Middle Of A South Carolina Lake

Sometimes, history plates up a great big serving of a savory kind – a remnant of the past that should be long gone, but somehow remains for all to respectfully witness and get a taste for the past. Such is the case with a little-known island in the middle of Lake Hartwell. It’s an island now known as Cemetery Island, although some locals prefer to call it Ghost Island. It’s located close enough to the mainland that anyone should be able to paddle on over and see what the island has preserved for generations long gone and for many more generations to come.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
