- This beautifully landscaped state park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and a number of CCC structures on the park are still in use. Five peninsulas extend out into the lake to create an abundance of shoreline. Boating and camping are two of the most popular activities at this 914-acre park. A large area of attractive undeveloped forest land is of special interest. Enjoy fishing in Lake Greenwood for bass, crappie, bream, perch, catfish, stripers.
