Barnwell State Park


**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp can be found in the comment box to the left of the park office door.

Barnwell State Park is a community favorite among the residents of Blackville, South Carolina. One of 16 state parks built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, Barnwell is best known for its great fishing spots. Three small lakes host a large population of crappie, bream, bass and catfish.

Overnighters can take advantage of the Barnwell State Park cabins and campground, both of which sit only a short walk from the park lakes. Recreational opportunities include non-motorized fishing boat rentals, picnicking and a nature trail that winds around one of the lakes. A community building is available for meetings, reunions, weddings and other group gatherings.
