Report: Actually Lake Robinson (Hartsville, SC) has 3 public landings...and there is a power plant on the lake that keeps the water warm enough to ski year round. Yes....Year round. However...this also makes the water just a Little Too warm in late summer. Great place to just hang out. There is a slalom course to test your skill (upper end, to the right) and cool water above the discharge canal. (That would be the quiet area to smooch). About Charleston,SC, If you get a chance to make it down there, ride out in the harbor. A ride out to Fort sumter or under the aircraft carrier is cool. Extra points if you find the small island that used to hold the prisoners during the war of Northern aggression.. Its very over grown but still pretty cool. Can you imagine being held in a pit with 3 feet of water during high tide? There is also the battery to ride up to for a quick walk around downtown. (Depending on how long you want to leave your ski on the sand). Very touristy here...shops, food, bars, etc. Taking an anchor to any tidal water is Highly recommended! Also, The best place that I have been able to find is under the Hwy 9 bridge over the intra coastal water way. (Little River, SC) This landing is in fresh water. Ride south to stay in the fresh water or ride north to the salty stuff. Bird island (only accessible by boat) is about 4 miles to the north, and north myrtle is about 2 to the south. There are a few restaurants and night clubs that you can ride to going south. However the fun is on bird island where it's wild to mild. The breakers are right there along with excellent beaches and yachts galore. Just a few miles inland from bird island would be Calabash, NC. (This would be the place to get a great seafood dinner) And Yes...you can dock at the restuarants. For those of you coming down to the Myrtle Beach area. This is the closest landing going north on hwy 17. Going south on 17 the closest place would be Garden city. Nice inlet there to hang out at. A good place to beach a ski. Well best of luck to ya'll.
Thank you Roy.
There is a place called Bushy park in Charleston SC is truely a great place to ride. It is very calm water so you can scream into every turn. This place is made up of many waterways and channels. And by the way it is completely fresh water. I have a blast everytime me and some friends get out and partake of some good ole' fun. There is also another place that you can go that is in Charleston called Duncan's Boat landing right off interstate 526. You can take the water all the way to the harbour and I like cruizn' to my favorite watering hole from there called The Windjammer. This too is an awesome ride.. I hope to see you there some time. Have Fun.
The best place to ride Jet Skis in Columbia, SC is Lake Murray. It is fun!

Lake Robinson Hartsville, South Carolina A great place to ride jet skis. The water is seasonably warm and there are small sandy beaches if you know where to find them. Camping and boating are also welcome as well as two main paved landings. Family atmosphere at the main landing and fun, party atmosphere at the other. Riders range from amatuer to expert and the lake is large enough for boating as well. A great place to stretch it out see what you got if a drive to the inlet is not on your agenda.
