Poinsett State Park Destination: SC Parks


Pointsett State Park looks like it's located in the mountains, but the park is located in the outlying area of the Coastal Plains, yet still in the Sandhills.

Many of the original Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) structures remain standing. The park was opened in the 1930s and is the second state park in South Carolina. There were some structures built in the 1700s that were repaired by the CCC. Fireplaces in the cabins are built out of coquina, a native rock to South Carolina. The CCC also used natural timbers from the area for its construction.
