Sesquicentennial State Park
**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp is located just outside the entrance to the park office.
Sesquicentennial State Park, affectionately known to locals as "Sesqui," is a spacious, green getaway in the heart of the Sandhills region. Once you're immersed in the 1,400 acres of pines, camping sites, and nature trails you forget just how close you are to bustling, downtown Columbia, South Carolina.
A retreat center complete with a kitchen and overnight, dormitory-style accommodations make the park an ideal spot for family reunions and group gatherings. Camping sites are also available to overnight guests. The park provides kayak and canoe rentals, fishing, two nature trails and a 6-mile bicycle loop for day-use recreation.
