Lee State Park was built in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in order to provide riverside recreational opportunities for the residents of Lee County, South Carolina.
Along the Lynches River, kayaking and canoeing trips can be taken through the park’s hardwood forest floodplain. Fishing may also be enjoyed from along the banks of the river and children can fish for catfish in the park’s artesian pond.
The park’s rich diversity of natural habitats and wildlife make it an ideal setting for nature walks and the interpretive, educational programs hosted on site. Equestrian facilities are also available. Lee State Park is one of the shrinking number of CCC parks with surviving structures that display the classic Civilian Conservation Corps architecture.
