Croft State Park
Once part of a World War II Army training camp known as Camp Croft, this area continues to play an important role in preserving greenspace in Spartanburg County. Croft?s rolling terrain of 7,054-acres and two lakes support an excellent habitat for a variety of flora and fauna.

The park also offers diverse recreational opportunities for the adventurous guest that includes a hiking trail, fishing, picnicking, seasonal swimming, camping, equestrian facilities and more. In addition to its history as a military installation, the park?s cultural features include remnants of a Native American soapstone quarry, registered as a Heritage Trust Site.

Its one of the best for trail riding.. Been here many times.. Also has great campsites and horse barn....Not good if it has been raining tho.. can get boggy on the trails when wet. otherwise a great place to spend a day or weekend ...

Nice Horse trails, clean restrooms, plenty of parking. The trails range from wide and very easy to narrow and slightly hard. To many trails to ride in one day!
January 31 Good trails
Croft is great if you live in the Spartanburg area becaause it is so close. The horses tend to bog the lower areas when it has been wet and do a good bit of damage to the trails. I wish more of the trails were dedicated to foot hiking only. There would be much less errosion and plant damage.
December 29 Great place! by E Smith
The park has really worked hard on all the improvements on trails, barn, campsites, clean bathrooms. The staff are alway willing to assit you in anyway possible. Anyone new that does not know the park, the local people will take them out and show them the trails. Great Job
August 17 Most improved ! by Linda H.
If you have not been to Croft lately, you need to plan a trip. I have seen more improvements in this park in the last year than the last 20 years. Work has been done on the campsites, the show ring, the barn, the trails. New picnic tables have been added near the barn, with hitching rails for the horse. Croft is the first SC trails that have been opened to horse riders, cyclist, and hikers to share the trails . We are having a great time and please let the rangers know if you like all the work being done.
July 6 Great for Trail Running by Mark
There are some fun trails with amazing hills (if you are up for a challenge!). Just be careful not to get lost (some trails are longer than they look on the map)!
