1: All of us at The Lake Martin Experience wish you a safe and happy July 4th! Please be as careful on the water as on land! Plenty of boaters will be on the lake for the first time this year or perhaps in a long time! Drive defensively! Yes, there will be Water Patrol on Lake Martin and you can bet there will also be roadblocks around the lake to make sure our roadways are safe!
