EUTAWVILLE— Scenic views of Lake Marion, wildlife and relaxation are among the offerings at the Indian Bluff Recreational Park.
Located in Eutawville, the 32-acre park offers swimming, a fishing pier, a boat ramp and hiking along various nature trails. There’s a playground and volleyball court, according to T&D archives.
No park would be complete without outdoor grills, picnic tables and the all-important restrooms, all features of the recreational park. The park also offers endless photo opportunities.
The park opened almost three decades ago and is a joint venture between Orangeburg County and Santee Cooper.
Admission to the park is free and the facility is open year-round, opening at 7 a.m. and closing at 7 p.m.
The park most recently suffered damage due to Hurricane Matthew. Restoration efforts were completed in 2018.
Orangeburg County Community Development Director Richard Hall said, “Both the fishing pier and the boarding dock were heavily damaged during Hurricane Matthew. So, using FEMA funds, we were able to rebuild both of those. Those are both fairly new, only about a year old since they’ve been redone.
