About Wateree Recreation Area

Wateree Recreation Area is located in the heart of South Carolina’s Olde English District, where the three large river systems, Pee-Dee, Catawba-Wateree and Broad, that once brought in settlers, now lure campers, picnickers and fishermen alike!

Situated on a peninsula of 25 pristine wooded acres, Wateree Recreation Area is designed for the recreational enjoyment of all authorized DoD customers, from civilians to retirees to active duty and their family members. Come up and rent a boat to catch some catfish or bass or to just tour the lake and relax on the water.

Reservations may be made 120 days in advance by active-duty military members assigned to Shaw Air Force Base, 90 days in advance by other active duty members, and 60 days in advance by all other authorized users. All cabin rentals are a 2-night stay minimum.
