The Perfect Weekend Vacation

Plum Branch Yacht Club is a lake paradise with pristine waters for all things aquatic, a vacation getaway spot for families, and a safe-haven with acres for children to enjoy childhood-wanderings, activities, and explorations. Plum Branch Yacht Club was established on March 2, 1996, by George Selfridge and Bea McClain, formerly of Atlanta, who were selected by the Corps of Engineers to operate the business now known as Plum Branch Yacht Club at Lake J Strom Thurmond (aka Clarks Hill Lake).

At Plum Branch Yacht Club we have RV camping sites along the shore, a Marina and Lakeside Grill (a renowned seafood restaurant – now also serving homemade pizza! It is accessible by boat, car, golf cart, or by foot, with fabulous sunsets, enjoyed from our deck overlooking the lake—perfect for those who enjoy nature and dining out. 

At Plum Branch Yacht Club most everyone is a “regular”. We have a strong sense of community and an extended family environment where everyone knows everyone, and the kids are free to wander the 93 acres and make new friends or find old ones. The kids are safe to run, fish, swim, play, and not be too concerned about the world outside our gate. In short, Plum Branch Yacht Club, Inc provides the kind of safe-world of the 1950s where a kid was free to be a kid and not grow up too soon.

We offer special events at The Pavilion on Plum Beach, and the Lakeside Grill caters to exquisite weddings against shimmering lake backgrounds and stunning sunsets.

We sponsor 4H2O Camp every summer in collaboration with nearby Clemson University and the 4H organization. Kids learn all about the environment around the lake, the health of the water, fish, and habitat of the lake as well as acquiring fishing skills and boating safety. They even learn a little biology without realizing it.

The Marina

We have slips from 10’x25′ to 22’x90′. Most of our slips are covered and have county water and plenty of electricity whether you have a fishing boat, a pontoon boat, a cruiser, or a houseboat. We provide in-slip pump-outs at a nominal fee. We offer a gas dock and boat ramp adequate for anything from a fishing boat to a very large houseboat. We also have land storage & sheds for boats and RV’s. PBYC offers a limited number of transient boat slips for short stays.

The Lake

Lake J Strom Thurmond is an unpolluted 71,000-acre lake with 1200 miles of shoreline created by the Army Corps of Engineers by damming the Savannah River just above Augusta, GA. The lake is so pristine that it is safe to eat as many fish as you like, which include:

  • Largemouth Bass
  • Bream
  • Catfish (regularly longer than the tailgate of a pickup truck)
  • Crappie
  • Hybrid Bass
  • Striped Bass
  • Varieties Native to Southern Lakes

The pristine, uncrowded waters make ideal conditions for enjoying water sports including swimming, boating, and waterskiing. There is always a smooth secluded cove to learn to water ski or get pulled on a tube or perfect your wakeboard skills.

Storage Sheds

We have 41 13 x 35 storage units available on-site with long lockable doors, concrete floors, electricity, and light. These units can fit a boat and trailer, golf cart, grill, camping, or outdoor gear. They are not climate-controlled.

Flag Retirement – Proper Disposal of American FlagYou may have heard about our local McCormick Area Veteran Association (MAVA) holding a proper American Flag Retirement ceremony on June 14th, 2024, “Flag Day”. We conducted that ceremony in coordination with our Sandy Branch Fire Department in proper military fashion.MAVA has installed two American Flag receptacles located at Monticello Golf Pro Shop and at the Recreation Center. Those of you who have worn out, ripped, tattered, or just faded American Flags, please deposit them at either of those two locations and we will collect and store them for proper retirement at our next “Flag Retirement Ceremony”. If any of you have a Military Branch flag in the same condition, you can place them in the receptacles as well.These receptacles are marked as “Flags Only” not for “Trash”. So please do not place trash in them. If you have more than a few flags, please contact me or any member of the MAVA for pickup and storage.This was posted in the Savannah Lakes Newsletter. However, if you have American flags that should be retired with dignity, bring them to the Ship's Store and I will take them to the drop box at SLV.Bea McClain ... See MoreSee Less

We were asked many times this weekend "Can we take this table?". The simple answer is absolutely NOT. It may cause us to lose a few dollars, but nothing in comparison to what many have given. Please be respectful and if you don't understand, we will be happy to explain. Please remember our fallen, and pass this respectful act to generations to follow.
