15 Gorgeous State Parks In South Carolina That Will Knock Your Socks Off

State parks are the most overlooked source of fun in South Carolina and that fact absolutely amazes me considering that most of them are free or very low cost to enter. Not only are they budget friendly, a lot of them have hands-on facilities or learning facilities as well as recreational areas such that you find at Lynches River State Park in Florence, SC, which has a treetop or canopy walk. With so much beauty in South Carolina and right at your fingertips, there is no reason why you shouldn’t pack up the family, pack up a lunch, and pack them all the in the car for a day or even a weekend of fun!


All told there are 30 state parks, 15 state historic sites, 1 state resort park, and 1 state recreational area covering approximately 80,000 acres of our state and all of it is available for you to enjoy. All they ask is that you leave it as you found it. Make you footprints soft ones.
