A short drive southeast of your campsite near Dillon is Little Pee Dee State Park, which lies within the South Carolina Sandhills region. It encompasses the Little Pee Dee River and the 54-acre Lake Norton, making it a popular fishing destination for catching bream, bass, and catfish. It’s home to a wildlife-filled swamp and part of Carolina Bay, an unusual geological depression that’s unique to the Atlantic Coastal Plain. There’s a boat ramp so you can get out on the water and a 75-foot fishing pier, as well as a children’s playground, picnic shelters, canoe and kayak rentals at the park office.
Just across the border in North Carolina is the Lumber River State Park, which sprawls across more than 12,000 acres along what’s been designated as a National and Scenic River. It was established in 1989 and attracts anglers from near and far, with black crappie, largemouth bass, catfish, and redbreast sunfish, just some of the species that can be lured here. More than 20 boat launches can be found along the Lumber River for getting out on the water, with recreational facilities found at the Princess Ann Landing near Orrum. While you’re exploring the park, keep your eyes peeled for alligators, white-tailed deer, and black bears, as well as northern river otters and myriad birdlife.
