South Carolina Recreation

Wambaw Creek Wilderness, South Carolina

The Wambaw Creek Wilderness now contains a total of 1,825 acres and is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. All of the wilderness is in the state of South Carolina.

Public land becomes wilderness through legislation passed by the United States Congress in the form of public laws. For the Wambaw Creek Wilderness, this process began in 1980 when 1,640 acres were designated by Public Law 96-560.

The Wambaw Creek Wilderness is part of the 106 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. This System of wild lands contributes significantly to the ecological, economic, and social health of our country. Wilderness provides clean air and water, a shelter for endangered species, sacred places for indigenous peoples, a living laboratory for research, and a classroom for exploring personal values while experiencing risk, reward, and self-reliance. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities like hiking, backpacking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, horse packing, bird watching, stargazing, and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. In an age of "...increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization," you play an important role in helping to "secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness" as called for by the Congress of the United States through the Wilderness Act of 1964. Please follow the regulations listed below and use Leave No Trace techniques when visiting the Wambaw Creek Wilderness to ensure protection of this unique area.

  Area Management:

Unless otherwise specified, no motorized equipment or mechanical transport is allowed. This is true for all federal lands managed as designated wilderness.
