Favorite National Wildlife Refuge - I never tire of visiting one of the most unique places in eastern S.C.. Whether you like to hike, fish, hunt, observe wildlife and wildflowers, plants, etc., SHWR is a wonderful place to visit. I always treasure my visits because I truly feel like I step back in time whenever I enter the refuge.
Poinsett St Park (equestrian trails) - The equestrian trails have always been a favorite of ours. We were told diturbing news tonight that the trails are no longer to be used by horses. If not horses what??? The message was that the campground is closed and horses are not welcomed. Is this true or did the Ranger relaying this info make a mistake? Mistake I hope.
great trails but no swimming - After searching online ,which stated there was swimming, that there was no swimming in the lake. highly disappointed but found out there was a creek to go to so i tried there not great for swimming either just wading but the scenery was great.
- Great park to make a day of it. We brought a picnic lunch to eat before hitting the trails. There are educational signs along the way that tell about the history of the canal. Bring your cameras and comfortable walking shoes. Really enjoyed it!
A world class destination - After being in fifty one countries I can still say the SC parks along the Blue Ridge Escarpment are as satisfying an experience as any to be found far away. We are fortunate to have these delights so close at hand. Turn off the tube and take a hike!!
Built in 1986, the four story Pumpkintown Mountain Opry building is a monument to old-world craftsmanship and home of the restaurant and shops. We invite you to enjoy the theater arts of the Pumpkintown Mountain Opry or come relax on the porch and enjoy some ice cream or our great coffee.
