The blackwaters of the Little Pee Dee River provide a tranquil setting for guests to enjoy at this regional state park. The river, named for the Pee Dee Indians who once roamed this area, is accessible from the park for fishing or just relaxing.
In addition to the river, the park includes a small river swamp, features of the Sandhills region and a tract of a Heritage Trust Site, which includes a Carolina Bay.
Diverse ecosystems, from the flood plain along the river?s edge to the dry sandy areas, provide habitat for a variety of flora and fauna.
This 835-acre park includes a campground, natural trail and picnic area. The park?s 54-acre Lake Norton offers anglers the opportunity to try their luck for bream, bass and catfish.
Located near I-95, the park is popular with interstate travelers as well as local residents.
