Poinsett State Park has an interesting location. Set on an outlier of the Carolina Sand Hills, Poinsett is where the vegetation of the low country meets the vegetation of the upcountry, resulting in the overlapping of ecosystems—a place where Spanish moss hangs in trees that stand over blooming mountain-laurel bushes. The melding of nature’s finery results in a beautiful setting for a park, and an understanding of why this was an early addition to the South Carolina state park system, originally developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Historic structures from the CCC–era add charm to an already pretty place.
