Located in Plum Branch, South Carolina, Hamilton Branch State Park occupies a peninsula on the 70,000-acre Lake Thurmond. Thanks to activities such as fishing, boating and lakefront camping, the park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts looking to spend time on the water. Campers can reserve one of more than 150 spacious, lakefront camping sites, an ideal spot for shoreline fishing. Anglers looking for deeper waters can access the lake via two private boat ramps and fish for bass, bream, striper, catfish or crappie. Off the water, Hamilton Branch provides group picnic shelters and a short bike trail that serves as a connector to the 12-mile Stevens Creek Bike Trail.
