Poinsett State Park: Often referred to as “The Mountains of the Midlands, ” this park yields some of the most unique natural sightings in the park system, especially along the Palmetto trail. Hiking and biking trails wind through the entire park, and Poinsett’s 10-acre lake can be used for fishing and johnboat rentals.
