Lee State Park
One of several CCC parks in the state, Lee State Park was built in 1935 by the CCC in order to provide riverside recreational opportunities for the residents ofLee County, South Carolina.
Along the Lynches River, which runs through Lee County, South Carolina and is partially protected from development by the state of South Carolina, kayaking and canoeing trips can be taken through the park’s hardwood forest floodplain. Fishing may also be enjoyed from along the banks of the river and children can fish for catfish in the park’s artesian pond.
The park’s rich diversity of natural habitats and wildlife make it an ideal setting for nature walks and the interpretive, educational programs hosted on site. Equestrian facilities are also available. Lee State Park is one of the shrinking number of CCC parks with surviving structures that display the classic Conservation Corps architecture.
This place is very close to home. I have lived next to this park for 20 plus years and I have watched it change since a big hurricane (Hurricane Hugo) came and destroyed a lot of stuff. You can still see the impact of it here. Very clean place, has lots of camp grounds and RV slots. You can go off the beaten path and find old cottages and house from the civil war era. It’s a very nice place to bring your horses. They do have a horse’s track and some stables but I believe you need to bring your own supplies. **The road that goes to the river is and has been closed for a long time due to flooding. But I do believe you can walk to it.**
Took my Yamaha Super-T down the dirt road to the back of the park where vehicles cannot proceed further. There's a small boardwalk/pier near a quaint pond and waterfall. Real peaceful. Only took me 15 minutes before a) I caught a 2 lb. Pickerel b) was visited by a family of 4 Otters c) saw a very large red -headed Woodpecker. Wow and cool as heck. Nature at it's best!!!!!
I am very impressed with the SC State Park system and Lee is no exception. We go there for the equestrian features and camping and it is a great place to go. Just wish it was closer!
All sites had power and water hookup, with flat surfaces for RV parking. The facilities were nice and clean and the Ranger was very nice and informative. The park was beautiful and well kept.
Awesome State Park with walking trails a boardwalk and Artesian wells. A wide variety of plants and animals can be seen in this wetland hardwood forest. Unique experience with beautiful scenery.
