Located on ​​87 acres within the Historic Tugaloo River Corridor, this site was once the home of the Native American town of "Estatoe"in the 18th century then later a working farm in the 19th and 20th centuries. 

 

Now this site is open to the public for recreational purposes, group functions and events such as family reunions, church fellowship gatherings, kids birthday parties and the like.  Most facilities are FREE of charge. 

Take a stroll on a nature trail to the river or enjoy a picnic with family and friends or join us for one of our nature events or music happenings. We even have have kayaks and canoes for rent so you can take your adventure to the water. There's plenty of areas to explore!

 

For  private events such as weddings and corporate functions, the entire park may be rented exclusively (closed to the public) for a fee of $250.
