Firewood Alert: Because of the seriousness of a potential infestation from the Emerald Ash Borer, we are requesting that no firewood be brought into South Carolina State Parks from outside of the state.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a destructive invasive exotic beetle that feeds on ash trees. Park campgrounds and picnic areas are the most likely areas for EAB introduction into South Carolina. We appreciate your help in protecting the natural resources of South Carolina and our State Park System.


Status: Open year round.

  • Come to Lee State Park and enjoy a bike ride with a Park Ranger. We will ride 5 miles on the park¿s Loop Road - a dirt and gravel road built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. As we bike, we¿ll wind our way through the Sandhills and the Lynches River wetlands, habitats used by many of the park¿s resident wildlife. We will stop at two artesian wells to rest and allow participants the opportunity to drink from a natural flowing well. Participants must be 8 or older and be able to bike 5 miles. Adults must accompany children under 18. Registration Deadline : 1 day prior to ride. Call (803) 428-4988 to register on Sep 14 2013
  • Hoot hoot hoot...whinny...are just some of the sounds that come out of Lee's forested wetlands and pine forests as the sun sets over the western horizon. Few get a chance to see or hear these animals in the wild. Join us for an after dark walk at the park as we seek out Lee's crepuscular and nocturnal wildlife. We'll search for owls and other birds, amphibians, bats and moths. Bring a flashlight and wear long pants. This is a 1 mile nature hike. Registration required. Call the Park's Education Center for more information and/or to register (803)428-4988. on Sep 28 2013
