  • Woods Ferry Picnic Area Reopens

    The Woods Ferry Picnic Area on the Sumter National Forest in Chester County has reopened. The vault toilet at the picnic area is also open. The site doesn’t have drinking water, but visitors can obtain drinking water from the adjacent Woods Ferry Campground, which is also open. Woods Ferry Recreation Area, located along the Broad River, is popular for fishing, horseback riding, picnicking and camping. The Woods Ferry boat ramp remains closed due to heavy silt. Cleanout of the ramp is planned this summer when the river drops to a low level.
