"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. Popular features of the park include living history programs, an Andrew Jackson museum that details his boyhood in the South Carolina backcountry and a birthday celebration held each March in honor of the seventh President of the United States of America. Other park attractions include an 18th-century replica schoolhouse, campground and picnic facilities, fishing lake and nature trails." See more on the Andrew Jackson State Park website

A portion of the nature trails, Crawford Trail and Garden of Waxhaw Trail are dedicated to Carolina Thread Trail. An entire day can be spent learning about the Waxhaws Indians, the history of Andrew Jackson, hiking the trails and fishing in the 18-acre pond.  A printable map is available at the trailhead.
