Hilton Recreation Area
Open from 6:00AM-10:00PM
Wessinger Road Chapin,SC
This small recreation area on Lake Murray is maintained by SCE&G. It offers 2 picnic shelters and a boat ramp. There is a floating dock alongside the boat ramp for easy loading and unloading of passengers. Public restrooms are available. There is no fee.
This is a great place to swim or fish. There is a small fishing dock and plenty of shallow water for splashing around. The shelters have grills so bring a picnic! If you forget your picnic, the Just Wright grill is located just outside of the entrance to the park but it is not open on Sundays.
It can get crowded on the weekends and you need to watch out for broken glass and small bits of trash in some areas. Water shoes are highly recommended to protect little feet while swimming.
To get there, take I-26 to exit #91, then go south on Columbia Ave. 1.8 miles into the town of Chapin. Turn left onto Old Lexington Highway and go southeast 4.4 miles. Turn right onto Wessinger Road and stay on this road until you see the recreation area entrance.
