Sit next to a warm, crackling fireplace in a mountainside cabin, listen to the ocean waves crashing from a rocking chair on a screened-in porch or watch the sun set over the lake from your lakeside villa. A relaxing stay in one of the parks’ cabins or villas is an essential part of the state park experience, and guests will be treated to these sights and sounds, and many more. Some of the state’s best overnight accommodations can be found in the parks, and the options and amenities are limitless.
Quaint, rustic CCC cabins have a rugged feel to them and can be found in several of the parks from quiet lots in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Escarpment to quiet locations located only a short walk to the beach. The cabins, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, have their place in history, but all the amenities of a modern-day cabin, including linens and fully-equipped kitchens.
Anglers and outdoorsmen will rave over a stay in one of Santee State Park’s rondette-style cabins. Ten of these unique, round cabins sit on a pier over Lake Marion.
Guests looking for a more modern overnight-stay will enjoy the spacious villas at Devils Fork nearby Lake Jocassee, and Dreher Island’s lakefront villas along Lake Murray. Villas come with linens and fully-furnished kitchens, as well as satellite television and other comforts of home.
