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.
Visitors can explore the park’s river swamp, examine features of the Sandhills region and admire an example of the mysterious geological depression unique to the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the Carolina Bay.
Guests also enjoy the park’s campground, nature trail and picnic area.
Fishermen appreciate Lake Norton’s ample collection of bream, bass and catfish.
The park’s easy access to Interstate 95 has long made it popular with both travelers and area residents alike.
