Hickory Knob State Park is located in rural McCormick County, which is about 90-mies from Columbia. It sprawls along the many fingers of the Strom Thurmond reservoir, a part of the Savannah River above Augusta. That lakeside layout offers lots of options for those that want to cool down during a hot summer day. My June visit included a chat with Park Manager Adin Fell to set up a guided kayaking trip from the private boat ramp, and I was glad to learn that Fell used to work at Edisto Beach State Park, and still loves the Lowcountry.
