This 240-acre park and retreat center is the Greenville County Recreation District’s jewel in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It offers a beautiful natural setting, a fantastic camp and retreat center, camping, and picnic areas.

The Camp and Retreat Center is a barrier-free facility that is perfect for gatherings large and small and can host groups for dining, activities, meeting space, and over-night stays. Luttrell Lodge is a 4,000-square-foot dining and meeting facility with full food service, stage, sound system and more. Bi-Lo Charities Fireside Hall is a 6,000-square-foot open air facility featuring a stage, sound room, and canteen. The Camp and Retreat Center has eight modern, comfortable and climate-controlled cabins that can sleep up to 160. Each cabin has a sitting area, small kitchen, four bunk rooms, private bathrooms, and a covered deck. The Camp and Retreat Center features the universally accessible “Know Boundaries” Challenge Course, a zero-depth entry pool with splash pad, activity areas, archery, primitive camping, and more. Pleasant Ridge Camp and Retreat Center is home to the following camps: Camp Spearhead - a residential summer camp for individuals of all ages with special needs. Camp Courage – a residential camp for children with cancer and blood disorders. Camp Luv-A-Lung - a residential camp for children with breathing disorders.
