Welcome to Andrew Jackson State Park

Andrew Jackson State Park honors the memory of the seventh president of the United States, who spent his boyhood here in the Waxhaws area. A museum tells the story of Jackson's experiences and life in the South Carolina backcountry from his birth in 1767 until he left the state in 1784 after the Revolutionary War. A majestic statue of Jackson on a horse, sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington of Brookgreen Gardens fame, is another highlight of the park. Now a preserved greenspace in our fast-growing community, this 360-acre park also has a campground, picnic shelters, nature trails, fishing lake and amphitheater.
