Woods Bay State Park: This 1,590-acre park is located in Olanta. There is a lot to see here as there is a boardwalk over the swamp (look out for alligators in the reeds!) and a nature trail that goes around the pond. You can also canoe, fish, and picnic here.
Table Rock State Park: Located in Pickens, this park is 3,083 acres. Among the must-sees and dos here include the tallest mountain in the state, Pinnacle Mountain, and portions of the 76-mile Foothills Trail.
Devils Fork State Park: If you want to get on Lake Jocassee, this 640-acre park in Salem is the only place with an access point for the public. Enjoy boating and swimming here as well as a nature trail.
What are the most beautiful beach areas in South Carolina?
Raven Cliff Falls: Located in Caesar’s Head State Park in Cleveland, this 420-foot waterfall is the tallest in the state. See it via a two-mile trail. And while you are in the area, look out for the birds that the waterfall was named for.
Laurel Fork Falls: Located in Sunset, this waterfall is 80 feet tall. You can take in all of its beauty and then take a swim right here. The downside is that getting here isn’t easy. It is over eight miles there…. And then over eight miles back.
