“Not a park for good hiking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

The turkey oak trail was in terrible condition, mostly rutted 2 track for maintenance vehicles that was barely walkable and in a location that appears to be a token after thought.The half mile boardwalk along Lake Juniper is nice and a trail around the lake would be much more desirable.The lake is beautiful. Most of the resources and effort are put into the golf course.

“Love the campground, but we don't golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Not sure why there isn't a separate TA listing for the campground and park. We are not golfers, we are campers, and we love this little campground. It's a beautiful state park with a very well maintained 16 site campground, with nice gravel sites, a very clean bathhouse and lovely views of the lake from several sites. The lake is a few miles long so it's great for kayaking and canoeing, and they offer boats for rent ( we have our own and love being able to launch from our favorite campsite. The park also has a nice beach and swimming area across the lake from the campgound with a volleyball court, playground equipment and even a cornhole game set up. All the rangers have been helpful and friendly. Although we don't golf, the course looks well maintained, the greens appeared lush and there were plenty of folks on the course this weekend.
Probably our favorite thing is the moonlight paddle that they do about once a month in Spring thru Fall. A ranger leads the boats into the cypress grove as night falls and then you paddle back in the dark, hopefully with a nice moon lighting the way. We've done that both times we've camped here.

“Gone downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

Unfortunately this golf course has deteriorated over the past couple of years as there is lack of funding from the state. The greens were terrible and the overall condition was not the best.

“Outstanding golf course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

The state park has an excellent 18 hole course. Every hole is framed with large pine trees. There is some strategic water holes as well. the 13th is a very difficult par 4 with a testy second shot to a water protected green (or a lay up to about 100 yards). The course has some maintenance issues probably due to budget cuts, but it is a delight to play and is very reasonable. I would play this course any chance I get.

There is no park entrance fee. They do have cabins available though we did not stay there.

“Didn't golf but the park is a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

What a beautiful State Park! Wonderful wildlife! We rented a cute cabin there in the park...my kind of camping! It was freezing outside but warm on the inside and we had the best time playing Bird Bingo which came with the cabin rental. Great family time with the kids and comfy pull outs! Visit the Hardware store in Cheraw to meet some great town folk who love to share the fascinating history of Cheraw including Revolutionary War, Civil War, and Slave Market history. Home of jazz great Dizzy Gilespie too! Run, don't walk....better yet HIKE In Cheraw State Park with your kids and spouse!
