Table Rock State Park

Table Rock State Park

Table Rock Mountain provides a towering backdrop for an upcountry retreat at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Table Rock State Park features two lakes, a campground, mountain cabins, meeting facilities and its historic, renovated lodge.

The park has been one of South Carolina’s most popular since it was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Many of its structures are now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Table Rock was home to one of the state’s first formal nature education programs and now serves as a trailhead for the 80-mile long Foothills Trail through the wilderness along the Blue Ridge Escarpment. Trails through the forested park also include one that leads to the top of Table Rock Mountain itself.

The park also hosts a visitors center near the main gate along S.C. 11, the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway.
