Nestled in a floodplain forest along the designated state scenic Lynches River, Lee State Natural Area has been serving South Carolina since it was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

Now conveniently located just off Interstate 20, visitors can camp, fish, ride horses and hike and explore along the park’s nature trails.

Lee State Natural Area’s artesian springs, millpond and sandhills add to its diversity as a natural setting. Deer, raccoons and red foxes are among the permanent residents.

The park also features an environmental education center with exhibits about its natural setting in Lee County, a library and historical documents, including newspapers, from the days the park was built during the Great Depression.
