Visiting This One Mountain Lake In South Carolina Is Like Experiencing A Dream
When most people think of heading to Table Rock State Park, the first thing that comes to mind is likely the enormous landmark that has forever loomed over the landscape along the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Byway. However, the two lakes at the state park are equally stunning. We especially like Pinnacle Lake, located on the same side of Highway 11 as is Table Rock.
