Tall cypress trees that enchant the eye, a Civil War-era mill pond that abounds with wildlife, some of the best kayaking in South Carolina
and a one and a half mile, sandy nature trail waiting to be explored can all be found at Goodale State Park.
Goodale is sure to please those who love wilderness canoe trips and kayaking in South Carolina, as paddling is one of the park’s main attractions. A little-known paddling trail winds for three miles through cypress trees and aquatic plants and is perfect for wilderness canoe trips
taken not so far from the city.
A longtime community favorite, Goodale additionally offers shoreline fishing and picnicking.
