About Providence Ferry on Lake Thurmond
Imagine the thrill of packing up the car and heading to the lake. After all, it's a family tradition. Times at the lake mean backyard barbeques enhanced by effortless laughter and wafts of spicy smoke drifting through the pines. Children run and play unencumbered, doing those things inherent to expressing childhood freedom. It's impossible for adults to resist the urge to become childlike again, too.
Where there is water, there is nature with its own serendipities. Deer are often spotted sipping from the lake. Sometimes wild turkey will walk across the lawn. Plant and wildflower identification in the woods becomes a favorite pastime, as does sitting, eyes closed, at the roots of a shading tree. Early mornings and late afternoons are spent down at the dock, blue jeans rolled up to the knees, feet dangling in the cool water. Boats buzz by - the fish are biting. Boating and water sports will be easily accessible from your doorstep. The lake’s vastness opens to you miles of aquatic related adventures. And when it comes to fishing…well, let it suffice to say that it’s absolutely incredible. Chances are, you’ll frequently return to your dock with a hefty catch of crappie, catfish, stripers, or largemouth bass.
The area around Providence Ferry is also known for its historic significance. Many Native American tribes considered the Savannah River lands their prime hunting grounds. Renowned Royal Botanist William Bartram collected plants and animals from the area during his trek across the south in the late 1700s. History also closely links the area to the Revolutionary War and the War Between the States.
