Lee State Park is one of South Carolina's first state parks. It was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression of the 1930s as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. It is situated along the banks of the Lynches River.

The park is open to visitors year round for activities like camping, hiking, nature walks, horseback riding, swimming and fishing. The park has a boardwalk into the wetlands hat would otherwise be difficult to reach. Visitors can see white-tail deer, herons and egrets, warblers and reptiles and amphibians like yellow-bellied turtles and spring peepers.

The Lee Environmental Education Center features a wetland ecology lab and exhibits about the habitats and wildlife of the park.
