Thurmond Marina to close temporarily

Thurmond Marina will close temporarily starting Wednesday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers J. Strom Thurmond Lake Office announced.

The area will be closed to the public for approximately three weeks.

Boaters and anglers may use nearby boat ramps at Cherokee Day Use Area in Lincoln County and Keg Creek and Wildwood Park in Columbia County while the Thurmond Marina is closed.

The temporary closure of Thurmond Marina is required to ensure public safety while contractors remove underground storage tanks on the site. Access to the boat ramps will be obstructed while work is ongoing. The marina will be re-opened for public use as soon as possible following completion of the work.

For questions, please contact the J. Strom Thurmond Project Office at 1-800-533-3478.
