We enjoyed visiting the park with our dog. The trails are beautiful, mostly natural - worn ground, not paved. There is a man-made waterfall, ancient trees and a lake with paddle boat rentals. There are camp grounds which we didn't visit.

we paid five dollars a person to get in to see if it would be good for viewing the solar eclipse. It wasn't. It was just a park. Not great, not bad.

The back bike route is ok, but only about 5.5 miles. If you have to stop to go to the bathroom area before a hike, just use the woods. It's cleaner. I've never seen such a disgusting, noisy, horrible place in my life. People screaming...More

Great hike through Sequi for the new Year. We picked up a pamphlet from the State Park. We got a stamp on our pamphlet.

I have been to many beautiful and amazing parks in my life all around the world. This one is one of my favorites. Not because of the fauna, wildlife or historical statues, but because this is the Goldilock park for me. It is not too...More

Clean with walking trails and a lake. Camping available as well. Nature education offered to. A lauded back park. Splash pad is fun for the kids. Splash pad can get crowded with daycare kids. Go early or late in day.

Wanted to get out and experience some South Carolina nature and "Sesqui" is right around the corner so I figured why not. The park entrance fee is minimal with a discount for Army National Guard, but not for Active Duty. Sadly, I didn't get the...More

There are spots that could handle almost anything. The roads are pretty bad and a lot of sites are not very level but I still like it there. Your best bet is to call the ranger directly at the park. They are always helpful... More
