General Information

Andrew Jackson State Park
Copyright: - South Carolina Dept of Parks, Recreation and Tourism
Andrew Jackson State Park
Description - This 360-acre park was created as a memorial to the seventh President of the United States. Andrew Jackson spent his earlier years in this rugged pioneer area known as the Waxhaws. A museum displays historic tools, textiles and household furnishings typical of the Jacksonian era. Other features on the park are a sculpture of young Jackson by Anna Hyatt Huntington and a replica of an 18th century one-room schoolhouse. The park also includes an 18 acre lake, two nature trails, an amphitheater and a meeting house.

The two nature trails provide moderate 1 mile loops. The park lake provides fishing for catfish, bass, and bluegill. Boats can be rented for a reasonable fee but private boats are not allowed in the park lake. There are two picnic shelters available free on a first-come, first-served basis or reserved for a fee.

Recreation - The recreation activities at this park include camping, fishing, picnicking, hiking and touring the museum.

Climate - South Carolina generally has a temperate climate, with cool winters and warm, humid summers. Snow and freezing temperatures are possible in the winter at the higher elevations. Thunderstorms are possible throughout the year but most common in the spring and summer. Tropical storms occasionally strike the coast during the hurricane season.

Location - Andrew Jackson State Park is 9 miles north of Lancaster on US 521. It is located in the north central part of the state just south of the North Carolina border.
