What is there to do?

It makes sense that Table Rock State Park takes it's name from the incredible towering mountain that serves as a backdrop to this 3,000 acre park, and all the activities that it has in store!

The park is close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, which explains it's incredible natural beauty.  It's a great destination for exploring, adventure, and just being out in nature! There is an old-fashioned swimming hole on one of the park's two lakes, which is always popular with kids. If you want to extend your stay there is a campground within the park too, as well as cabins. 

Feeling active? Table Rock State Park also has a host of hiking trails that will take you past mountain streams and waterfalls, and all the way to the top of Pinnacle and Table Rock mountains. 

There's fishing, and boating, with pedal boats, kayaks and canoes available to hire, as well as swimming and playgrounds too!

While the park is well known to outdoor enthusiasts for its natural features, Table Rock also has its place in history. Fun fact time, kids! Many of the Table Rock State Park cabins and other structures built by the CCC remain standing and are on the National Register of Historic Places. Pretty amazing!
