Meetings & Retreats

If you are interested in escaping the hustle and bustle of the office to find time to unwind and think with your group in a relaxed, casual atmosphere, then our parks fit the bill. In addition to fun group activities for adults, we have spacious meeting rooms for day-use and overnight accommodations should you need to spend a couple of days away from the office.  Many of our facilities offer Wi-Fi service as well as audio-visual equipment so you can escape but still accomplish your goals.  Parks that are ideal for these outings include:  Hickory Knob, Devils Fork, Santee, Lake Greenwood and others.  Search for a park near you!


Need to reconnect and reminisce with the family? State Parks make for the best family reunion sites!
