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 is a wonderful place to visit/camp. I would highly recommend. The Ranger staff are great. Personality Plus. The hosts Rocky and Donna Lane work constantly to make sure the campsites are clean. The bathroom and showers shine. They are scrubbed everyday and always smell great. They have personality plus. They strive to make sure visitors to the park have a wonderful visit to the Park.
We literally stopped because I had to use the bathroom, and while it was so far down into the trees I thought I would never make it, the bathroom was extremely clean and next to a lake which people could swim in. If I wasn't on a road trip, I'd have liked to spend some more time there! It seemed like a nice place.
Nice boardwalk. Poor roads and campsites in the north half of the park. Dirt roads with ruts and runoff everywhere.
Campground is 50% off if you reserve online and use code leesummer50. Price was well worth it. Sites have electric and water, and dump station at entrance. The campground has only had at most 3 sites occupied since Monday. Today I learned why it still so quiet. When it rams, half the campsites get flooded from the water running off the road and elsewhere. My 5th wheel is sitting in a 6 inch deep pond right now. It's raining, and it's only going to get worse. State needs to bring in some dirt to add elevation back to the camper spots.
This place is great. I love the trails and natural spring. Goid fishing too.
