Bells Marina is owned by Jud and Charlotte. They both love the outdoors and want to create an amazing location for others to do the same.
Our gated resort is next to a cove at Lake Marion (one of the Santee-Cooper Lakes), and directly borders 400 acres of pristine wildlife preserves. The Santee-Cooper Lakes are a top fishing and hunting destinations in the state. The Santee National Wildlife Refuge and Pine Island Unit National Wildlife Refuge are both just a few miles away.
You will find world-class fishing here, including striped bass, white perch, white bass, crappie, channel catfish, Arkansas blue catfish, shellcrackers, bream and chain pickerel (jack).
The state fishing record for largemouth bass was set here at Lake Marion. It is not unusual to catch a 25+ pound catfish right off our marina docks!
Other wildlife at Lake Marion include deer, fox, squirrel, turtle, dove, wild turkey, and various species of duck, hawk, eagle, egret, and osprey.
You can have fun exploring the area surrounding our resort. There are almost 40 miles of trails, and local guides will show you the best spots for hunting, fishing, or photos. If you want a break from all the wildlife and nature, there are six golf courses within a 15-minute drive.
