Even though this was the end of February and it was cold, we really enjoyed the lake and the rangers and just walking on the trails. Want to go back in the spring.

There was a place to pay to enter ($2/car), but then no map and on the one side of the park there was no where to park a car, so we made our own parking space which is not good for the environment. We went there to get some geochaches (spelling?). We found 2 easily and another was much harder... More

We paid the $4 admission fee which you place into an envelope, and then place the card onto the rear view mirror. There are several trails' and we had a heck of a time finding some of them. The 7.5 mile bike trail is great. Beautiful woods, a great several hour family experience.

We rented 5 of the pier cabins with 4 other couples for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The park is clean and staff is friendly. The accomodations were great as well. The sunset view in the evenings was spectacular!

A quiet get away. Lovely lake views, cabins or camping available. Fishing piers, lake tours, golf and local boat rentals. Several good restaurants near by.

My wife and I stopped in to the park for a brief hike before we continued our trip home. The park is located on beautiful Lake Marion and offers lodging through camping or rental of their 2 bedroom lodges. On our next trip through we will probably try one of the lodges in lieu of a hotel. The park and... More

I have been here before; once solo at an individual camping site and another time when taking a graduate credit course “Discover Carolina” for teacher recertification credit. I am here now for our annual “Fall Sprawl” with the Palmetto State Hangers. We are hammock campers using the entire group camping area. Here we are approximately eighty guests and members, and...
