Kings Mountain State Park | Destination: SC Parks


Kings Mountain State Park is located in the Piedmont region of South Carolina. It's next to the Kings Mountain Military Park. There are over 80 buildings built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), many still standing today. 

The park has many buildings that are used for the interpretation programs for schools. There is a living history farm. It's the re-creation of a 1940s farm that served as the home place for a famer and his family. Visitors learn everything that happened for the family for survival during that time period. Some of the buildings include the blacksmith and carpenter shop. There is also a cotton gin which is housed in the largest building at the park. There is a real working farm where cotton and sugar gum are grown. Period vegetables are also grown too.

There are several programs throughout out the year with one in the summer that includes the Catawba Nation.
