Table Rock State Park
April 6, 2009
Table Rock State Park is located in the northern section of Pickens County, between Table Rock and Cherokee Foothill Scenic Highway.
The park was built in 1930 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal Program created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The land came from donations in large parts from Pickens County, and Greenville county, as well as through purchases from various landowners and a donation from Elizabeth Ellison.
Its 3083 acres features hiking trails, several creeks, two lakes, a campground, mountain cabins, picnic areas, shelters, playground, meeting facilities, a store and its historic, renovated lodge.
Table Rock State Park serves as a trailhead for the 80-mile long Foothills Trail through the wilderness along the Blue Ridge Escarpment and an upcountry retreat at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
