Welcome to Clarendon County, Home of the Striped Bass Festival!
From the warm, sun-kissed shores of Lake Marion, to the colorful streets lined with dogwood and azaleas, to the quiet and mysterious woodlands bursting with wildlife, Clarendon County provides a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
Whether you are an outdoorsman looking for a challenging hunt or a retiree looking for a new home, Clarendon County has just what you may be seeking. So, sit back, kick your shoes off, have a tall glass of iced tea (sweet, of course) and spend some time with us ...

I love Clarendon County and when I think back on my childhood and living in Clarendon County, I never would have imaged that I would grow up to be a part of such a wonderful organization like the Clarendon County Chamber of Commerce. Every day I have the privilege to speak to the wonderful people of our county, visitors and new comers about all the wonderful things our county has to offer. I love the opportunity I have to sell our unique way of life. Clarendon County is the best place for business and we are committed to helping our members and our county prosper.
