Chester State Park

Chester State Park has been a haven for hiking, picnicking, boating and fishing for the surrounding communities in the South Carolina Piedmont ever since it was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

Centrally located between Columbia and Charlotte, the park centers on a 160-acre lake, itself surrounded by a two-mile nature trail through the pine forest.

A community building, camping, archery range and johnboat rentals and an unusually serene, placid setting close to town are among this traditional state park’s attractions.
