An exciting collaborative of conservation partners, state agencies, and local governments is launching a visionary effort to link a series of riverside public and private parks along a 70-mile stretch of South Carolina's scenic Black River.
The proposed Black River Water Trail & Park Network, featuring the first new state park in 15 years, is being planned to meet the open space and access needs of communities along the water, while creating nature-based tourism opportunities to boost the local economy. To learn more about this endeavor, please visit the Black River Story Map.

The Black River is a cultural and natural treasure for the Palmetto State. Whether you live in the area, own property nearby, paddle or fish the river, use parks and ramps along the river, or simply have treasured memories to share, we want to hear from you.

Learning from those who value the river is critical to this process. Thank you for taking 10-15 minutes to complete this survey. Your input will remain confidential.
