Waccamaw, the Lake and the Legend

Record #:
Named for an Indian tribe, Lake Waccamaw in Columbus County hosts summer speed boat races and annual sail boat regattas. Many legends exist concerning the lake including one that it was once a giant flower garden protected by an Indian princess. The Great Spirit answered her prayers and turned the garden into the lake, protecting her from her enemies. The lake is home to several kinds of fish including largemouth bass and crappies.
