Hickory Knob State Resort Park

Hickory Knob State Resort Park is located in McCormick, South Carolina. It is the only resort park in the state park system. I have been to this park several times and it is a very nice park. The views are fabulous!

There are a lot of activities available at this park. There is a playground, a basketball court, a volleyball court, a horseshoe pit, tether and ladder balls, and a putting green. You can also make a reservation for archery or skeet shooting. There is also an 18-hole championship golf course.

Water sports include swimming in Lake Thurmond or the swimming pool if you are staying in a cabin or the lodge. You can rent a canoe, kayak, rods, and reels at the park office. The boat ramp for the lake is also available.

Accommodations include rooms at the lodge, 16 cabins, a group lodge, and a campground. There is a restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

A historical house, the Guillebeau Houses is located at the park.

There are 3 bike/hiking trails that go along the lake’s edge. The Beaver Run Trail is 2.5 miles, the Lakeview Loop is 7.2 miles, and the Turkey Ridge Trail is 1.7 miles.
