The back bike route is ok, but only about 5.5 miles. If you have to stop to go to the bathroom area before a hike, just use the woods. It's cleaner. I've never seen such a disgusting, noisy, horrible place in my life. People screaming...More

Clean with walking trails and a lake. Camping available as well. Nature education offered to. A lauded back park. Splash pad is fun for the kids. Splash pad can get crowded with daycare kids. Go early or late in day.

Wanted to get out and experience some South Carolina nature and "Sesqui" is right around the corner so I figured why not. The park entrance fee is minimal with a discount for Army National Guard, but not for Active Duty. Sadly, I didn't get the...More

There are spots that could handle almost anything. The roads are pretty bad and a lot of sites are not very level but I still like it there. Your best bet is to call the ranger directly at the park. They are always helpful... More
