Baker Creek State Park

Baker Creek State Park is opened seasonally from March 1 until September 30.

Looking to leave city life behind for a few days. How about a secluded venue to enjoy nature? Baker Creek State Park, located on the shores of Lake Thurmond, is the ideal location for a lengthy camping trip or a relaxing swim.

Along with its campgrounds and lake access, Baker Creek is also known for its 10-mile mountain bike trail, where riders can test their skills as they enjoy the park’s stately pine forest. The park also is a great place to observe wildlife, including waterfowl, wild turkeys, deer and curious squirrels.

Baker Creek also has a large lakefront pavilion ideal for family get-togethers and other gatherings. It’s also just a few minutes from Hickory Knob State Resort Park, with its golf course, restaurant and other full-service resort offerings.
