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 damming up the Savannah River just above Augusta, GA. Because of the lack of pollution, 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 refreshing 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.

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 have a gas dock big enough to accommodate houseboats. 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 for boats and RV's. PBYC offers a limited number of transient boat slips for short stays.

The Restaurant

Lakeside Grill provides deliciousness in both the menu and venue. Enjoy our chef’s offerings and the lake vistas from our dining room or deck.

Typical items on the menu: Seafood, Rib-eye, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Chicken, BBQ Pork, Pizza, Soft Drinks, Beer and Wine.

The Camping

Camping is available on site and for day, weeks and months at a time. Please call for availability and pricing information. There is no limit to RV sizes. We have electrical and water on the grounds. Some sites have septic hook ups. We also have RV storage.

Not For Members Only

At Plum Branch Yacht Club, Inc, most everyone is a “regular”. We have a strong sense of community—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.

The Events

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

Visit us for the following fun times!

  • Boat Parade
  • Easter Egg Hunts
  • Fireworks
  • Halloween Costume Parties

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. Email: [email protected] or phone: 864.852.2112 ext. 113.
