The park was developed in the mid 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps as part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal program. It was the first state park opened to the public in South Carolina.

It was a great destination for “long” drives with my grandfather in my pre-school days, and many end-of-school-year class picnics in the ’50’s & ’60’s. Caught my first sunfish off the pier there, too. Thanks!
