3 Reasons to Explore Little Pee Dee State Park
1. Fantastic Hiking and Walking Trails
Little Pee Dee State Park is one of the best places to get outside and explore the beautiful woods of Eastern South Carolina for travelers driving along the Atlantic Coast. This 835-acre park offers several trails that wind and weave through the beautiful backcountry landscapes ringing Lake Norton. The largest of the trails in the preserve is 1.3-mile Beaver Pond Nature Trail. You’ll find that this is an incredible spot to get out, stretch your legs, and see some of the Palmetto State’s long list of bird species.
2. Fishing Along Lake Norton
If you love to fish, then bring your rod and reel with you to cast out a line into the waters of Lake Norton. This 54-acre lake on the eastern edge of Little Pee Dee State Park is teaming with bass, bream, and catfish. A dock and plenty of free shorelines are ideal for casting in your line and catching some fish! The views across the lake are fantastic, so don’t forget to bring your camera to photograph this beautiful nature preserve.
