Acquired in 1937, Barnwell State Park is a 307-acre park situated along the coastal plain in Barnwell County. Known for its lake fishing and large meeting facility, Barnwell features five vacation cabins, a 25-site camping area and a nature trail.

The two park lakes provide day-visitors and overnight guests the opportunity to appreciate the natural features while enjoying the recreational opportunities on the park.

The park was originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a public works program set up in the 1930s by President Franklin D. Roosevelt?s New Deal. Examples of its work can be seen at the spillway, picnic shelters and the lower lake.
History of the Area
Barnwell State Park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal Program created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The program was designed to provide employment during the Great Depression while addressing national needs in conservation and recreation. The CCC was instrumental in the development of many of South Carolina?s state parks. A number of buildings built by the CCC in the 1930's are still in use at this park.
South Carolina offers a variety of Park Passports. You can read more about the South Carolina Park Passports and order online by visiting the SOUTH CAROLINA PARK PASSPORTS web page.
