Can you swim in Lake Marion South Carolina?
While swimming is permitted in Lake Marion the State Parks website mentioned swimming is at your own risk. Pretty much all SC lakes have alligator populations so it pays to be careful. That being said there are a few swimming areas around the lake. Casperson Park by the west end of Lake Marion is a good beach, as is a little beach near the Cypress View Campground.
