Outside the stillness of the woods sits Lake Thurmond, a 71,100-acre lake that offers campers serene, lakeside camping sites, as well as easy lake access for boaters and fishers. There is also a nice walking/hiking trail near the boat ramp.
Starting from the boat ramp parking area, this moderately difficult loop trail descends toward the lake into a predominately hardwood forest. You can enjoy a scenic view of the lake and possibly encounter a variety of wildlife as you ascend along the lake into a pine forest. Shortly after you cross the park road you will return to the parking area.
Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets are permitted only on leashes. Restrooms are available at the boat ramp parking area.
