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.
Six picnic shelters are available for family or other group gatherings. Each shelter may be reserved for $25-38/day. If shelters are not reserved, guests may use shelters on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge.
To make a picnic shelter reservation, call toll-free 1-866-345-PARK.
