State Park Service Upgraded its Website with Fresh, New Look


Columbia – The South Carolina State Park Service upgraded its website at with a fresh new look and easy-to-navigate design. Using bold graphics and a trendy color scheme, the updated site features an interactive park finder map, enhanced pages for each of South Carolina’s 47 state parks, and new program listings and features.  It also incorporates the parks’ Instagram feed, live webcams and more.


The project also redesigned the sites for the South Carolina Junior Ranger program and Discover Carolina curriculum-based education program. Both provide a deeper experience for young park visitors into the natural and cultural wonders of parks.


“The new site is a great resource for anyone who wants to know anything about state parks,” said Phil Gaines, director of the South Carolina State Park Service. “It is inviting, engaging, easy to use and hopefully inspires people to visit state parks.”


The upgrade was designed by Bluffton-based BFG Communications, the communications marketing agency of record for the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
