CLEVELAND, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina has added land along the South Saluda River it plans to let people use for fishing, hunting and hiking.
The Department of Natural Resources said the 2.7 square-mile (711-hectare) parcel of land in northern Greenville County was bought for $4 million thanks to $3 million from the state Conservation Bank. The agency's Heritage Land Trust Fund and timber account paid for the rest.
The department said in a news release the land is called "Tall Pines" and it has two lakes, streams and both upland and wetland areas as well as a mile (1.6 kilometers) of river shoreline.
The agency says the land has deer turkey, quail and other small game. The stretch of the South Saluda River is also a popular fishing spot.
