This is to let you know that there is construction being done at the Dam. The Dam is still open and accessable, but please be cautious around that area. They are in the process of putting a walking bridge over the Dam.Posted on: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 10:21am
It seems that some GPS systems do not give actuate directions to our park. If the directions that the GPS give you advise you to drive though the Green Swamp then there is a possiblity that you will get stuck in the mud. If you are following the GPS directions and it has you turn off on to a dirt road. Stop! Do Not continue. The best directions will keep you on paved roads. See Driving Directions below.
The park is a great place for a hike! See the Trails page for more information.
Boating is a popular pastime at Lake Waccamaw. There is no boat access in the park, but two free public boat launch areas are available nearby. One is maintained by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission (WRC) while the other is operated by Lake Waccamaw State Park. Powerboats and sailboats may be launched from the boat ramps, but parking is limited. The waters of Lake Waccamaw are park property and all park rules apply.
Picnic tables and grills are conveniently placed beneath tall longleaf pines and turkey oaks draped with Spanish moss. Drinking water and restrooms are nearby. The picnic area and the restrooms, as well as some picnic tables, are accessible for persons with disabilities.
