Explore South Carolina’s Sandhills At This Underrated State Park

The South Carolina Sandhills swipe through the central part of the state in a diagonal fashion moving south from east to west. It’s a geologic wonder that all this sand is sitting in a path that virtually follows the coastline – but at least a hundred miles inland in some places. Geologists believe the sand was moved here by wind during the last glaciation about 75,000 to 6,000 years ago. It’s truly a sight to see and one place to get a good feel for life in the Sandhills is Cheraw State Park in Cheraw.
