    We were at Little Pee Dee State Park, SC this past weekend (13-15 July). This is a little park tucked away outside of Dillon, SC. The first thing you will notice is the main road into the park needs help. When you turn off into the camping area it is all hard packed clay road, I am sure it gets dusty. Signs state you need to check in at the ranger's office, but he is never there. Each camp site that is reserved has a piece of paper with reserver's name on the site number post. We camped at site 9 which is lake side. The lake side sites have railroad ties designating the camp site. Due to the amount of rain and lack of gravel our site was partially washed out and leveling the PUP was hard. You can rent canoes, kayaks and fishing boats if you can find a ranger. All the sites had lots of shade trees and privacy. The Beaver Creek nature trail is about 2 miles long, but we were unable to finish it due to lack of use. Since no one ever uses the trail, spiders have taken over. After about a mile of fighting through spider webs we came upon a huge web with a very large spider (Hollywood big), so we turned around. There is a small trail that leads around the lake and has a bridge, this trail was fun to walk. We got to see an Eastern King Snake (about 4 ft long) hunt an Eastern RedBelly Snake. That Redbelly snake became really fast once it figured out it was being hunted. The fishing was poor, but they call it fishing and not catching. The one shower house was nice, but they need more and people need to stop smoking while doing there business. This is a nice little park for relaxing, there is nothing else to do there.

    There's really nothing to do there since the lake was taken out by a hurricane. Literally....nothing there anymore.

    The dam is actually repaired. There is also an online 35% discount through the end of April 2020.
