Your Safety

Charles Pinckney National Historic Site commemorates Charles Pinckney's life of public service and contributions to the United States Constitution, and preserves 28 acres of his former plantation, Snee Farm. There is much to discover here, but some safety precautions are necessary.

  • Use insect repellent in the warmer months. Mosquitos, ticks, chiggers and gnats are present. Fire ant mounts can be found on the grounds.
  • Drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks out of the sun.
  • When hiking, be aware that poison ivy may be present.
  • The area is partially wooded and many wild animals, including snakes, live here. Always give wild animals plenty of room.
  • Practice the leave no trace principle by packing out your trash. Use trash bins on site to throw away garbage.
  • Lock your car and stow away valuable belongings.
  • As in any National Park Service area, there may be tripping and falling hazards. These include natural areas, archeological excavations, and historic buildings and features. You can be injured and fragile resources can be irreparably damaged, so watch your step.
  • As part of the National Park System, everything here is protected, even the rocks and grass. Never remove or disturb any plant, animal, artifact, etc.

Please refer to law and policies for more specific regulations. All suspicious activity should be reported to park Law Enforcement at 843-277-4503
