Enjoy hiking, fishing and more end-of-summer fun at Table Rock State Park
If you’re looking for a fun day trip or weekend getaway before the end of summer, take a drive to Table Rock State Park in Pickens County.
Table Rock, the mountain that gives the park its name, is a beautiful backdrop for the 3,000-acre park and its facilities at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The park’s hiking trails feature mountain streams and waterfalls on the way to the top of Pinnacle and Table Rock mountains. Well known for its natural beauty, Table Rock State Park also has its place in history as one of 16 South Carolina State Parks built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Many of the original cabins are still standing and have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Table Rock State Park has two lakes – 36-acre Pinnacle Lake and 67-acre Lake Oolenoy. Visitors may fish in Lake Oolenoy during daylight hours with a valid S.C. fishing license. Personal boats with an electric motor are allowed. Boats with gasoline motors are not.
Table Rock State Park has 14 cabins and 94 standard campsites for tent or RV camping. There are four picnic shelters available to rent and one old-fashioned swimming hole that is open during the summer season.
