- South Carolina's first state park property and originally built in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Cheraw State Park is located in the sandhills region. The park's 360-acre lake offers fishing and various recreational opportunities in a beautiful setting. Towering cypress trees at the upper end of the lake are among the park's best kept secrets. Cabins and lakefront campsites are available for overnight guests. A championship 18-hole golf course with a full-service pro shop is the park's newest addition.
