Nice side trip during our stay at IOP

If you want to get out and walk a little, this is a nice place to visit. Free and lots of places to walk and see.

I'll admit, I may not have stopped it is wasn't part of the National Park system, but I'm so glad I did. This homesite is a piece of our past, and charming! You can spend a little time, or a lot here. Be sure to have your National Passport stamped here!

Loved learning about Pickney and his role in SC history. Grounds were well kept and paths were easy to follow. Curator was very helpful.

Celebrating 100 years of national parks and this one was all dolled up with bunting and all! Wonderful!

History buffs look no further. This sometimes unknown or forgotten founding father is highlighted here. We owe much to Charles Pinckney and his contributions and sacrifices in the Revolutionary War and in drafting the Constitution of the USA. Children don't forget your history. I was upset to find out this past weekend the abysmal turnout at an event the park... More

Not a lot to see here. But it is free and the grounds are lovely. Many people were enjoying picnic lunches in the shelter or sitting under a tree.

We popped in here on our way to Charleston. It has a small visitors centre in the old house which you can look round and see a short film and pick up a walking guide to the area. Picnic and restrooms facilities. Well worth a stop off and its free!

The Charles Pinckney site seems to be one of those over looked spots, but a must especially for those who are already there when visitiing Boone Hall Plantation. Aside from it beiing a National Park, it provides lovely history of the area and from pre-revolutionary war and on. Lovely grounds and walking path.

Gem of a little National park outside of Charleston, SC. Very informative displays and helpful NP staff. Well worth the visit. FREE. Located across the road from the entrance to Boone Hall plantation. Peaceful and relaxing grounds to walk around.

The house itself is beautiful. The items inside include furniture, everyday items (clothing, toys) and the house itself. It's lovely. The video of the history is well worth the watch. Rangers are knowledgeable and able to answer questions. If possible bring a picnic as they have an area with tables to sit and enjoy the trees, breeze and just relax.... More
