Lake Martin is beautiful. We had a relaxing swamp tour around the lake. The wild life was readily available to photograph. You can rent kayaks, fishing gear I believe.

Easy accessible for nature lovers. Very shallow at many times and difficult to negotiate w/o boat or engine damage unless you are very knowledgeable of the waterways. You would be well advised to take an inexpensive tour by local operators. All have extensive knowledge of...More
