Barnwell State Park

Barnwell State Park is a great fishing spot in South Carolina that not many folks know about.

A traditional state park primarily serving the people of Barnwell County, Barnwell State Park offers camping and cabins, picnicking and playgrounds, and a community center long favored for meetings, reunions and weddings.

There’s also a nature trail that winds around one of a pair of nice-sized ponds that many locals know hold a good population of crappie, bream and bass, some of them surprisingly large.

Barnwell State Park is one of 16 state parks in South Carolina built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression to provide jobs for the men who built them and recreational opportunities for the people who live nearby.

Such as great fishing. Guess the secret’s out!
