POINSETT STATE PARK
Poinsett State Park is located in an outlying area of the Sandhills, yet it is still within the coastal plain.
This unique position on the edge of diverse terrain makes for habitat diversity that supports a wide range of floral life. Within the park?s swamp, Sandhills, mountain bluffs and hardwood forests are plants that typically thrive in Upcountry habitats and species that are normally found in Lowcountry habitats.
The park?s cabins, picnic shelters and other historic structures are excellent examples of the quality craftsmanship of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which built the park in the 1930s.
This 1,000-acre park also features a family campground, equestrian campground, fishing lake, trails and access to the Palmetto Trail system, which links to adjacent Manchester State Forest.
