Due to wildfire in the Sumter National Forest, the section of the Foothills Trail between the fisherman’s access at Big Bend and Burrell's Ford is closed. Thru-hikers are urged to begin their hike at the Fish Hatchery or Sloan Bridge accesses. The wildfire is not currently a threat to the park and the park is open.
We ask all campers to check-in upon arrival. Please check-in at the park Visitor Center, 158 E. Ellison Lane Pickens, SC 29671.
Good news! Wi-Fi is now available in both the White Oaks and Mountain Laurel Campgrounds. Enjoy the ability to stay connected while connecting with the great outdoors!
The Gaines Lodge address for directions and to help route visitors is: 233 Table Rock State Park Road, Pickens, SC.
