Maps and Directions

Generally, by driving on various roads, you can get here from anywhere. The trick it to use the right roads. The map below shows the roads in the vicinity of the eastern end of the lake, which is where you want, eventually, to end up. The less eventual, the better, by most accounts. To get to the general vicinity of the eastern end of the lake, follow the directions below

From I-95

If you're north-bound, for instance, if you're on the way back home from the Midwinters in Key West, exit I-95 where it crosses I-26 and follow I-26 west to Columbia. If you're heading south, exit I-95 at I-20 and follow it west to Columbia. Interesting how you can follow these two interstates west from I-95 and they both meet (at right angles, no less) in Columbia! But enough of meta-physics...

From I-77

If you're coming south on I-77, hang a right onto I-20 west, then a right onto I-26 west .....

From I-26 west-bound

If you're coming from I-95 or Charleston, You'll pass to the west of the city of Columbia, then over the I-20 interchange at what we locals lovingly call malfunction junction. If you're getting on I-26 from I-20 (either direction) go west until you find the exit for Highway 60 (exit 102). Go west (that's a left) on 60 for 3.9 miles. When you get to stoplight at the dam, take a right onto Highway 6 (yes, west again). Go a short distance (about 0.5 miles) before turning left onto the first paved road on your left, which will be Shuler Road if I haven't confused you. That road makes a sharp left, another sharp left, and a hairpin right before terminating at the gate to the sailing club. You'll be facing sort of westish, of course.

From I-26 east-bound at highway 60.  Go west (that's a right) on 60 for 3.9 miles. When you get to stoplight at the dam, take a right onto Highway 6 (yes, west again).

Are you now thoroughly confused? OK, so just look at the map and sort it all out. By the way, the A,B,C,D, and E on the map correspond to various hotels and motels that we've suggested before.
