Sailing on Lake Murray is one of the best ways to shake the worries off after a long day and the Lake Murray Sail Club sponsors several regattas, sailing parties, and club activities throughout the year. There is also the Columbia Rowing Club which provides canoeing along the Broad River and white-water canoeing in Columbia.
Chapin also has a number of restaurants and bars conveniently located along the water where boaters congregate in the afternoons and evenings to socialize, grab a bite to eat and listen to live entertainment.
Lake Murray is a fishing and hunting haven. There are ample undeveloped tracts of land in the Chapin area and many hunters belong to local hunt clubs. North of Chapin there is an outdoor shooting range where hunters can adjust their scopes and prepare for the upcoming hunting season. The Broad River and Lake Murray are also excellent locations for duck hunting. And the lake hosts a variety of fish species, including striper, largemouth bass, bream and crappie. Lake Murray hosts a number of bass and crappie fishing tournaments throughout the year. For more fishing information and a list of local guides, call 1-866- SCJEWEL (725-3935) or go to the recreation page at www.lakemurraycountry.com.
