Baker Creek State Park
**When the park is open, the Ultimate Outsider stamp is located on the information kiosk in the office parking lot. During our closed season, it is located on top of the sign next to the Locked Gates. "Stamp" is written on the outside of the box.
Operated seasonally, Baker Creek caters to those looking for fun on Lake Thurmond, a wild ride on South Carolina mountain bike trails or a quick camping trip. If you’re looking for quality, South Carolina mountain bike trails, the park is home to 10 miles of rolling, loop trails that take bikers through oak and pine woodlands.
Outside the stillness of the woods sits Lake Thurmond, a 71,100-acre lake that offers campers serene, lakeside camping sites, as well as easy lake access for boaters and fishers. A covered, 160-person capacity pavilion overlooks the lake and is perfect for group get-togethers and family reunions.
Check out other South Carolina State Parks! You can find more boating and fishing fun on the South Edisto River or at Keowee-Toxaway State Park.
