Photo tour

Come to this State Park to see the remains of an old canal along the Catawba River. Landsford Canal is the last of a dozen 19th century South Carolina river canals, and it has all of its major features intact. Several hiking trails follow the canal and the river. This is a good place to see transportation history. It also makes a nice scenic hike for those who prefer flat trails, rather than mountainous ones. Canoe access to the Catawba River is available at a drop off area.

From mid-May to mid-June, you can see the world's largest population of the Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies here.
