Sesquicentennial State Park

Known affectionately as 'Sesqui' by locals, South Carolina's Sesquicentennial State Park is located not far from Downtown Columbia.  The park features numerous activities that allow for a fun day or an overnight stay.

The over 1400 acre park features numerous activities from a six mile mountain bike trail, six miles of hiking trail, a 30 acre pond that is popular for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing, and a splash pad for kids to cool off in the summer months.  The park came about as a donation from the Sesquicentennial Commission in 1937 and a number of the building and facilities at the park were built by the Civil Conservation Corps (CCC).

The park also offers three different types of overnight lodging - RV friendly campsites with electric and water hookups, primitive camp sites for those wishing to rough it a little bit , and a retreat center for lodging of large groups.

Sequi is located minutes from Downtown Columbia and is very close to both Interstates 20 and 77.  It is a popular spot for those in the Columbia area but also a great break for those traveling through the area or a day trip for residents 1-2 hours away.  The park is also home to a two acre dog park which is a great break for those traveling long distances with pets.

Park admission is $5 for adults, $3.25 for SC resident seniors (65+), $3 for children 6-15.  Ages five and under are free.
