Cheraw State Park – Cheraw SC

Description

Cheraw State Park is located in the northeast corner of the U.S. state of South Carolina. This large park is best known for its championship 18-hole golf course and the 300-acre (1.2 km2) Lake Juniper, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Visitors can rent kayaks, canoes, and non-motorized jon boats to explore the lake as well as fish for the catfish, bass, and bream found in the lake.[1] The park also has several cabins available for rent with views of the lake. There is no charge for admission to Cheraw State Park.

In 1934 the U.S. Government, as well local citizens, donated 7,361 acres (30 km2) for the parks. In 1990 an additional 1.4 acres (5,700 m2) was purchased from A. Wannamaker. Many buildings still in use at the park, as well as the 300-acre (1.2 km2) lake, were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.”
