“Hidden Treasure”

Musgrove Mill State Historic Site
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Clinton
Attraction details
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in at this fairly new park (opened in 2003) and found a beautiful place to stroll along it's two historical trails and overlooks of the Enoree River and Horseshoe Falls. Muskgrove Mill was the site of many grist mills and a strategic ford in the river in Colonial times and more known as the site of a patriot victory of backcounty militia and loyalists. The park is very well maintained and very clean. The park is free, but donations are welcome. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The battlefield sites are well signed. Picnic shelter and tables with grills available. We will be coming back as regulars!

The visitors center is quite well done with an interactive display that really bring the history alive. Picnic areas and walking trails are wonderful. All ages will enjoy this historic site. Early spring wildflowers and the Enoree River offer an added treat. Horseshoe Falls and the hiking trail with kiosks bring the battlefield into sharp focus. We live close by and go there often - even when we don't have company to share the experience.

Take a picnic to Horseshoe Falls - great place to wade, skip rocks and enjoy the quiet beauty.

Overall i would say the park was average-it was clean, had a nice visitors center. The park is actually divided into two sections. the first part had the visitors center, a walking path around the old British encampment and the site where an old house once stood. To go see the battlefield you had to drive to another road and then walk through a forest until you got to where the battle was fought. The ranger informed us that the state was hoping to acquire the land in between the two areas-then you could walk from the visitirs center to the battlefield. the battlefield area had nice signs retelling the events that took place. not a whole lot to see. But, if you are like me and enjoy historical sites-go ahead and stop if your in the area. Directions signs from I-26 are easy to follow-trust me, you won't get lost. This SC state site is FREE. Donations are accepted.

The visitors center of Musgrove State Historical Park contains a well documented presentation of the historical importance of the revolutionary war battle which happened there. In addition, the park contains good recreational facilities for familites. The park is located maybe ten miles outside of Clinton, SC and reached over pleasantly rolling, country roads.
