    Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge

    Visit Website

    Carolina Sandhill National Wildlife Refuge is located in Chesterfield County. Created in 1939, its original purpose was to provide habitat for migratory birds, to demonstrate sound management practices that enhance natural resource conservation, and to provide wildlife-oriented recreation opportunities. When Carolina Sandhills Refuge was purchased by the federal government under the provisions of the Resettlement Act, the land was badly eroded and very little wildlife was to be found. Efforts began immediately to restore this damaged, barren land to a healthy, rich habitat for the plants and animals that once lived here.

    Over time, the responsibilities have been added for restoration and enhancement of longleaf pine habitat for the benefit of the red-cockaded woodpecker, named as an endangered species in 1970. The Refuge operates under mandates to provide environmental education and interpretation of its work. Habitat improvement and restoration of native plant communities, monitoring the populations of the RCW and other species, and assessing the impacts of management actions on the wildlife and habitats are critical elements in the Refuge’s operations.

    Carolina Sandhills State Forest

    Today, the Carolina Sandhills State Forest is comprised of 47,850 acres, including fee ownership of 45,348 acres, and nine conservation easements totaling 2,502 acres. The majority of the Refuge lies in Chesterfield County, South Carolina; there is one fee title tract totaling 210 acres in Marlboro County. Numerous small creeks and tributaries, along with thirty man-made lakes and ponds and 1,200 acres of fields, support a diversity of habitats for wildlife. Sugar Loaf Mountain, a traditional gathering place for over a century, is maintained on Sand Hills state Forest as a family recreational area.

    Known locally as “The Mountain”, Sugar Loaf is an unusual geological phenomenon towering a hundred feet above the surrounding terrain. Composed of sand, it was at one time capped with ferrous sandstone, much of which has now weathered away. Vegetation on the mountain is also quite unusual for this area. It includes mountain laurel and the diminutive pixie moss.

    Quiet, shady seclusion, rustic stone and timber picnic shelters, a fishing lake and nature trail combine with this unique geological formation to make Sugar Loaf one of the most popular recreation areas in the sand hills region.

    Opportunities abound for other forms of recreation such as bird watching, nature study, primitive camping, and horseback riding. You will need a permit for trail activity on Sand Hills State Forest for Horseback Riding. Permits are not required for hikers using the trails.
