The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism (SCPRT) is a cabinet agency assigned to operate and manage South Carolina’s 47 state parks, to market the state as a preferred vacation destination and to provide assistance to communities for parks, recreation and tourism development and promotion. The agency is perhaps most widely recognized for its leadership role in promoting and supporting South Carolina’s number one industry – tourism.
SCPRT’s vision to enhance the economic well-being and improve the quality of life of all South Carolinians guides its operations, and provides a benchmark for hundreds of employees to measure their day-to-day contributions. It also is the basis for South Carolina's new Tourism Action Plan, a statement that projects a bright future if proper investments are made in tourism. Details about the agency’s activities can be found throughout this website.
