  • This is one of those places that not many a people know about this place but an important part of US history and history of the area. If you truly look at the history then you will walk away with mixe...  more »
  • Some of the history on Pinckney was interesting, but we enjoyed the beautiful grounds so much more. Better yet, the history of the grounds really peeked our curiosity. It probably won't be of interest...  more »
  • This is a beautiful and informative state park. We learned new info about our Constitution and government. Totally enjoyed it!  more »

  • We had a wonderful time today visiting the Pinckney home and park. The weather was perfect, the camellias were blooming and the 20 minute video presentation was an excellent introduction to the life and service of Charles Pinckney. I did not know how influential he was in American history. He was the governor of South Carolina several times, an ambassador to Spain, a colonel in the revolutionary war and instrumental in helping the Louisiana purchase to go through. After viewing the objects found in the house, which were mostly excavated from the property, we enjoyed a nice picnic lunch at one of the many picnic tables that are provided with a view of the lovely home, and beautiful live oak trees
  • This place is beautiful. We had a picknick under the trees and visited the house afterwards. There is no entrance fee but you can leave a tip. A ranger is also on duty to answer questions. You can also walk the grounds with a little self guided tour. Bring some bug spray though!
  • Not a big National Park, but a great way to spend a few hours learning about a true patriot. The park rangers were friendly and very knowledgeable. Free to visit!
  • I love National Park Service sites! The rangers and staff were super friendly and informative. And the property is beautifully maintained! I highly recommend visiting Charles Pinckney NHS for anyone interested in history or architecture.
  • Great as all other national parks. Free entrance great view of garden and oak trees with Spanish Moss. Go to visitor center and watch the movie.
