This was a very nice state park. Parking lot is small and very busy. Nature walk was about 1.5 mi round trip on a shady, mostly flat, unpaved trail. There are a couple of benches along the way. Picnic... more »

I go hiking at this South Carolina state park with my dog. It is a flat, 2.5 mile (round trip) trail that takes you through deep woods beside the Catawba River along the remnants of the canal built in the early 19th century. You can also take a shorter loop when you get to the riverside viewing platform that overlooks the rare Spider Lilies that bloom in late May/early June out in the shallows of the river. There is a picnic area, restrooms and a small museum next to the river by the parking lot. Entry fee is $3 per person, and well worth it. Take a bottle of water on your hike and enjoy.

Really beautiful place to go for a nice walk through nature. Seeing the lilies in mid-to-late May is quite an experience. There are a variety of trails and kayaking down the river is also possible. The trails are well maintained and it was fun looking out for wildlife. Easy to get to, but just be aware there is a small fee and it is cash only. I am looking forward to going back!

I was there during the Lilly bloom (mid may) in the middle of the river. Quite special. In addition there is a cute museum and historical canal buildings. It's a little off the beaten path but we'll worth the drive.

Great place to see nature at it's finest. We saw a turtle covering her eggs plus several other reptiles and amphibians. The Spider Lilies are beautiful when in bloom.

Gorgeous natural area featuring the Spider Lily which blooms from early May to early June. Kayak and canoes are the best way to see the lillies but the observation deck at the end of the trail offers a nice view as well. The local naturalist has a certificate to pick the flowers, the flowers are protected so don't try to take any yourself.
