The SC Forestry Commission plans to conduct a controlled burn of the 30-acre primitive camping area at Table Rock State Park on Friday, 3/22/2019. The purpose of the burn is to reduce fuel loads within the primitive camping area and to improve wildlife habitat. Burning operations will begin at approximately 8 a.m. and will conclude at approximately 4 p.m. on 3/22/2019. The Primitive Camping Area will be closed from 3/22/2019 through 3/25/2019. The closure may be extended beyond 3/25/2019 depending on conditions within the unit after the burn. The Visitor Center will be closed on Friday 3/22/2019 since fire crews will be staging from the Visitor Center parking lot. We ask all park guests to use the West Gate Entrance and check-in at the Park Store located at the entrance to the Mountain Laurel Campground. The address for the West Gate Entrance is 1025 Table Rock State Park Road Pickens SC 29671. The visitor center will reopen on Saturday, 3/23/2019. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
