The Scoop on Lake Murray's
Reference Lights

Squadron member George Frederick compiled this table of the Reference Lights on Lake Murray including the Differential GPS Latitude and Longitude for each. Member Lewis Lapine provided the Differential GPS positions. You can enter each light into your GPS as a way point using the Latitude and Longitude and therefore should be able to determine where you are even if you are unable to figure out the flash sequences. For a bird's eye view of where the reference lights are on Lake Murray, check out this Google map of Lake Murray.

If you encounter a light that is not functioning or damaged, please report the problem and the location of the light by emailing ReferenceLights@lmpsonline.org. If you are interested in volunteering to help monitor and maintain Lake Murray's Reference Light, you also can contact us by email at the same address. 

Odd numbered lights are green. Even numbered lights red.
