Kershaw County has a wealth of locations where you can walk, bike, and paddle.

Wateree River Veterans Park

This is one of our newest parks! Located immediately on the west side of the Wateree River, north of Highway 1, Veterans Park includes a paved walking path a little under half a mile long. It also has a boat launch for your canoe or kayak. This park has the potential to be an important centerpiece of future trail expansions. Visit and enjoy!

Goodale State Park

We’re lucky to have Goodale State Park right here in Kershaw County. This nature trail allows you to get out in the woods or take a canoe out on the lake and enjoy peace and quiet. There are three trails to consider when going to this location.

Scott Park

Scott Park is a great place to be active for all ages. A mile-long track winds around and through the park, connecting to the Sweet Gum Trail. In the center of the park is a dirt track. Enclosed is a fitness park with several exercise stations, complete with instructions for several exercises to complete at each station. There is also a picnic shelter and a children’s playground.

Kendall Park

This is a great place for a nice jog or walk, with a rubberized walking surface for shock absorption. Nestled between Kendall Lake and the Kershaw Health hospital, at the corner of Haile Street and Lakeshore Drive in Camden, the park has a very nice atmosphere, including nice shade trees and a quiet creek.

Clemson Lloyd Property

In the heart of the South Carolina sandhills, an 853-acre plot of forested land has been set aside for ecological conservation, research, and education. Bordered by the Wateree River on one side and the quiet town of Camden on the other, this land – called Hardscramble – was donated to Clemson University in 2006 by the late Margaret Lloyd, a local environmental advocate.
