About Robert Caulder

My wife and I have lived in Camden all of our lives. We have two children and four grandchildren. In our spare time we love being out on the water spending time with family and friends.

Robert Caulder purchased this house boat in 2009

Why Robert Caulder chose Camden

My wife's family has always had house boats on Lake Wateree. Her Grandfather had a house boat on Lake Wateree before there were ever any homes built on the Lake! This was shortly after the dam was constructed. Back then it was better know as "The River" and it is still called that by a lot of the local residents. Her father has also had several house boats over the years so it was only natural that we carry on the family tradition and own a house boat. Our first was named the Shag Shack, was 10 feet wide and forty feet long. Our family made some wonderful memories on that boat. As our family became larger, we out grew the Shag Shack. We went in search of a larger house boat and we now have the Shag Shack II which is 14 feet wide and 60 feet long. We have a home on Lake Wateree not far from the Shag Shack II and still enjoy taking the boat out occasionally.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend on the Shag Shack II. What a wonderful unique experience. We are ready to buy our own boat house now! It was very comfortable, clean and fully equipped with everything you may need. The weather was gorgeous and the fish were biting. The views were also beautiful. The boat is located on such a nice part of Lake Wateree and the surrounding properties are beautiful and very quiet offering lots of privacy. We are planning our next visit very soon.

Houseboat fun!

Well appointed houseboat on the lake. Nice owners, easy to access and plenty of room for everyone! Now if the owner would take us on a cruise, that would have been awesome!

Not the best weather, but the best of times

  • 5 of 5

The Shag Shack II was such a fun and unique experience. The weather didn't quite cooperate on the second day like we had hoped, but that didn't stop us from having a good time. We were able to do everything from catching a lot of catfish and grilling, to watching some games on the setup inside. The Shag Shack II is a great place to escape from it all.
