Conestee Nature Preserve

Lake Conestee Nature Preserve serves as ‘a world apart’ right here in Upstate, South Carolina, about 6 miles from Downtown Greenville. Its 400+ acres are recognized as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance, a state-designated Wildlife Sanctuary, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Preserve includes a diverse array of wildlife habitats, home to thousands of plant and wildlife species, where people of all ages and abilities can escape into nature — to explore, discover, and learn. All easily accessed from surrounding urban areas. There's nothing else like it in Greenville County.

There is no fee to visit the preserve; suggested $3 donation per person.

There are multiple parking areas that allow entry to the park. Please click the Website button for more details. Most people enter at 840 Mauldin Rd., Greenville, SC.
