The park occupies a series of peninsulas on Lake Greenwood, which itself offers 212 miles of shoreline and 11,400 acres of boating and fishing opportunities year-round.
Lake Greenwood State Park is one of 16 state parks in South Carolina built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. That history is captured in the park’s CCC museum, which also serves as a popular reception and meeting center.
CCC structures remaining at the park include picnic shelters, a boathouse, water fountain and lakeside terrace.
In addition to lakeside camping, picnicking and hiking, the park also hosts the SC Festival of Flowers Triathlon, a popular endurance contest held each June.
