  • By The Numbers
  • Unique Features


Located in the South Carolina Sandhills region and named after the blackwater Little Pee Dee River, Little Pee Dee State Park is a subdued setting for those who want to enjoy the park’s natural features or fish the still waters of 54-acre Lake Norton for bream, bass and catfish. With its easy access to Interstate 95, and picnicking and camping amenities, Little Pee Dee is popular with coastal travelers and locals alike.

Visitors can explore the Little Pee Dee River swamp, examine features of the South Carolina Sandhills region and admire the Carolina Bay, a mysterious geological depression unique to the Atlantic Coastal Plain.

You can find more Carolina Bays in the coastal plain region at Woods Bay State Park.
