Table Rock Mountain provides a towering backdrop for an upcountry retreat at the edge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment.

This 3,083-acre state park encompasses challenging hiking trails, two park lakes, a campground, rustic mountain cabins, meeting facilities and many other quality outdoor activities.

The view at Table Rock is as breathtaking today as it was to the Cherokee Indians who once inhabited this area.

Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the park still features many of the quality architecture and stonework of the CCC.

The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also a South Carolina Heritage Trust Site.
South Carolina offers a variety of Park Passports. You can read more about the South Carolina Park Passports and order online by visiting the SOUTH CAROLINA PARK PASSPORTS web page.
