Natural beauty and great golf come together at Cheraw State Park. An 18-hole championship course winds its way through the long-leaf pinelands of the traditional state park, a course thats earned notice from the Aubudon Society for the way its managed to preserve and protect the habitat it shares with uncommon critters such as red-cockaded woodpeckers and fox squirrels. The park in South Carolinas northeast corner also boasts Lake Juniper, a 300-acre impoundment built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression along with the parks original cabins and picnic facilities. A boardwalk along the lake helps visitors enjoy the scenic setting, and kayakers particularly enjoy silently scooting into the cypress wetlands at the lakes edge.

We were pretty much the only ones there. Walked the paths through the newer growth areas - then through the part that they recently did a controlled burn on apparently. Areas still smoldering. The other part was like walking through a desert area- except instead of cacti you'd see new pine trees growing. Flat trails but the fire breaks had uneven sand - which actually made for a more challenging walk. Took kids and the dog. Bring water.

Brisk sunny day. No one else on the trail. Very relaxing and peaceful.

I almost forgot! Be sure to visit the park office after your walk to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake before you go! Park staff is very helpful as well. super nice

this 4.5 mile walk through the woods was pretty awesome! Lots of information posted in the trail and the trail is very clearly marked. Wildlife continued to walk around although scared very easily. Definitely would do this again

Great place! The park is well maintained and my kids love it. The trail, although a bit dull, is clearly marked and very easy. My favorite thing to do here is to rent the canoes for the day and go fishing. Being on the lake is much more interesting than walking the trail
