Property Description

Photograph of Santee Cooper WMA

Santee Cooper WMA is located in southeastern Orangeburg County near the town of Eutaw Springs and encompasses approximately 3,000 acres on the south shore of Lake Marion. It includes several islands adjacent to the mainland part of the WMA, including Sixteen Island. A portion of Santee Cooper WMA (west of Ferguson Landing Way) is designated as a Category II Waterfowl Area and has entry restrictions during waterfowl season. The WMA is mostly forested, but there are several scattered wildlife openings that are left fallow or planted to cool or warm-season plantings for the benefit of various wildlife species.
