Calhoun Falls State Park

Calhoun Falls State Park

Calhoun Falls State Park sits astride several pine-covered points jutting into Lake Russell, one of the least-developed large reservoirs in South Carolina.

Besides providing access to the big Savannah River lake, the park offers camping, picnicking, a tennis court, playground, seasonal swimming area and hiking.

Picturesque views of the lake and surrounding forest are another highlight. Area anglers know well, too, that Lake Russell holds large numbers of bass, bream, catfish and crappie.

And that’s no fish story.
