Lee State Park RV & Campground Guide

South Carolina

Follow in the footsteps of the Great Depression Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) members at Lee State Park. Nestled into a large swathe of bottomland hardwood forest wetlands along the Lynches River, the park offers a peaceful, nature-oriented escape. Between fishing, boating, and swimming outings, you can explore the forest and look out for the many bird species that live in the trees. While you hike, keep an eye out for the park's four artesian wells and other historic CCC structures. The park is open year-round; come during the winter and spring to experience cool temperatures and low crowd levels. The town of Bishopville sits about eight miles west, and the nearest city is Columbia, which lies 60 miles southwest of the park.
