Boathouse at Chester State Park Chester, S.C.

Chester State Park rests in the quiet hills of the South Carolina Piedmont and for generations has offered retreat and recreation to the surrounding communities.

The park's 523 acres include a 160-acre lake, itself surrounded by a two-mile nature trail through the pine forest. Jon boat rentals are popular in the warmer months and the park also offers picnicking, camping, archery and a place to simply enjoy the serenity of the placid setting.

The Civilian Conservation Corps built the park and its work can still be seen and enjoyed today. The community building is heavily used year-round, adding to the secluded park's value as a place to both gather and get away
