Park Manager

Hello. I am Kirk Johnston, manager at Andrew Jackson State Park. I grew up next to Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Everyday life traveled through the park or within sight of it. My grandfather’s family had lived on what became the park, so over time it just was just natural for me to be interested in this line of work. 

My favorite thing to do at the park is sit at the lake in the early evening. You can watch the sun set over the horizon, and hear the frogs begin their concert for the night.

As a first-time visitor to Andrew Jackson State Park, if you don’t do anything else, make sure you take a few moments to study the Anna Hyatt Huntington sculpture “Boy of the Waxhaws.” This is a sculpture of young Andrew Jackson that is located on the park.

**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp is located at the kiosk in the main parking lot. We also have another stamp in the park museum.


Andrew Jackson State Park combines history, art and community activities into a setting that has made it one of the state’s most popular parks. 

Favorite features include living history programs, a museum and interactive exhibits that chronicle Jackson’s boyhood in the South Carolina backcountry. There’s even a birthday celebration every March in honor of America’s seventh president.  

Among the park highlights are a striking statue of the “Boy of the Waxhaws” sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington, an 18th-century replica schoolhouse and more.

Other park attractions include an 18th-century replica schoolhouse, campground and picnic facilities, fishing lake and nature trails.
