PARK ADVISORY

Due to increasing demand and limited parking, temporary park closures have become frequent on weekends and holidays from March through September. Parking is first-come, first-serve and is limited. Visitors are strongly encouraged to arrive outside peak hours (10 am- 2 pm). Park visitors are also encouraged to check with park staff on current parking availability prior to departing if they plan to return, as they could be turned away due to a park closure. For more information on park closures call 843-237-4440.


To protect the park and our neighbors, Brookgreen Gardens, which leases the property to South Carolina State Parks, and the South Carolina Forestry Commission are actively working on a critical forest management and hazard mitigation project in the park. With more trees than the land can sustain and layers of natural debris, the park’s thick pine forest and dense understory are a high risk for dangerous wildfires. Professional crews are working to reduce fuel loads in the forest through resource management strategies like installing fire breaks and completing timber thins. Learn more about this critical project and how it could impact your visit here.
