Lake Murray Hardware & Marine Supply - Lake Murray Headquarters in Ballentine

Need hardware, boating products, outdoors stuff around Lake Murray?

I've shopped a number of times in the past at Lake Murray Hardware & Outdoors.  However,
In Ballentine - Between Irmo and Chapin
recently I met the owner, Mike Cameron, and learned a bit more about his business.  It's a great place to shop.  Mike and his friendly staff are ready to help you with the following products and services:

  • Boating and Outdoor supplies and products
  • Fishing supplies & Bait
  • Guns and ammo
  • Cigars
  • Hardware, including stuff for docks and boats
  • Keys made
  • Batteries
  • Guns consignment service
Lake Murray Hardware & Marine Supply staff are especially proud of their level of service.  Need questions answered?  They have the knowledge to help - you don't get this at Wal-Mart.

Mike shared with me that he makes sure his prices are very competitive and and most items are at or below "Walmart" and/or Internet pricing.  As an example, I priced an item I had recently purchased from Amazon - OrPine Marine Wash & Wax by H&M Products.  This product has a 94% excellent/very good rating at Amazon and was purchased for $22.63.   The price at Lake Murray Hardware and Outdoors:  $18.99 (a savings of 16%).  A great deal!  Go buy some today.

Mike is also competitive on the rest of his inventory and guns and ammo too.  He gets great pricing from his distributor, one of Americas' largest sporting goods wholesalers.

Happy 4th of July from Lake Murray

Happy 4th of July from Lake Murray in South Carolina!

This is America's 240th birthday. I'm thankful for the early founders of this great country basing the birth of a new nation on Christian principles. Yes, that is true. Interesting reading on this important day in our nation's history:…/did-america-have-a-christian-foun…
We (Barbara, Kelly and Mel) left at 6:45 a.m. for an early morning boat ride from our home to the Dreher Shoals Dam on Lake Murray (a distance of about 9 miles by water).
