Andrew Jackson State Park is a 360-acre South Carolina state park established in 1952 to honor the only South Carolina born president, Andrew Jackson, who was born nearby in 1767. The park is on U.S. Highway 521 about nine miles north of Lancaster, South Carolina. The park offers hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing and picnicking. There is also a museum and amphitheater.

Welcome to Andrew Jackson State Park

Andrew Jackson State Park combines history, art and community activities into a setting that has made it one of the S.C. State Park Service�s most popular attractions.

The only park in the system dedicated to a U.S. president, Andrew Jackson State Park features a museum that details the boyhood of the nation�s seventh president, who grew up here in what then was known as the Waxhaws of the South Carolina backcountry.

A striking highlight of the park grounds is the bold equestrian statue of �Old Hickory� sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington of Brookgreen Gardens fame. Living history programs with docents in period garb are included in the park�s programming.

The Lancaster County park also has a replica of a late 18th-century one-room schoolhouse, an amphitheatre that serves as home to a well-attended bluegrass festival each year and other community gatherings, as well as a campground, fishing lake, picnicking facilities and trails.
