A Visit to The Landing at Parker Creek

Built completely out of bright orange shipping containers, The Landing at Parker Creek is one of the most unique and popular hangout destinations on Lake Martin! Owned by renowned sports anchor and his wife, Herb and Betty Winches, The Landing came to life in 2015. Since then, it has grown to be one of the most popular hangout spots for locals and visitors alike.

Known for its sweeping waterfront views, great food, and lively atmosphere, here is your guide to one of the coolest places to visit on Lake Martin.

Fun at The Landing

The Landing is known for a lot of things… and mostly for being fun. They have several pits set up where visitors can take advantage of a friendly game of cornhole by the water or simply enjoy the wide-open lawn area. And did I mention, it is dog friendly too? It is actually one of the most pet friendly places on Lake Martin.

There is also a beach and swim area to cool off – which makes for a great place to let the kids cut loose.

And of course, with stretches of open water from every angle, The Landing is also a great place to end your day and catch a famous Lake Martin sunset.

Eat at The Landing

One of the draws of coming to The Landing are the endless waterfront seating options. The entire venue is outdoors, with options to sit under the covered porch, shaded dock canopy, or even at high top tables right along the Lake Martin shoreline.

And the food menu is divine too! The Landing offers up a one-of-a-kind menu designed by Hawaiian Chef, Torrey Hall. From sushi to cheeseburgers, and everything in between, The Landing prides itself on a casual, yet unforgettable, open-air dining experience.

Bushwackers at The Landing at Parker Creek

The Landing has a full bar with several adult specialty drinks – including the wildly popular Bushwacker. It’s been said that The Landing’s Bushwacker is one of the best on Lake Martin… and I can say as an official Bushwacker Taste Tester, this rumor is true.

The staff is also incredible and one of the most enjoyable aspects of coming to The Landing. The bartenders not only make up good cocktails, they are also friendly and make it a point to remember your name… and your favorite drink.
