South Carolina’s Next State Park Will Be Situated Along A Historic River
In 1936, the first South Carolina state parks opened, starting with Myrtle Beach State Park, followed by Aiken State Park, Cheraw State Park, Kings Mountain State Park, and Poinsett State Park (not necessarily in that order). The most recent state park to open was in 2006, the H. Cooper Black Jr. Memorial Field Trial and Recreation Area. But that “title” is soon to be taken by the Black River State Park, the new state park in South Carolina that is currently in the developmental stages, to be situated along one of our historic rivers.

South Carolina has been home for AnneMarie since 2001. Her favorite part of the state is Lake Jocassee. An App State alumna, it's always the mountains; the lake bonus makes it heavenly. When not writing about the state, she may be spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, or out somewhere enjoying nature.
