Table Rock State Park Historic District is significant for its cultural and social relationship to the history and prehistory of the area within the state park boundaries and is also architecturally significant as an example of the construction of a state park by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). It is also significant as one of sixteen state parks constructed by the CCC, under the direction of the National Park Service (NPS), as part of the South Carolina State Park System. Pinnacle Lake is the focal point of construction and many resources are grouped around the lake. These buildings and structures are connected by a system of roads and trails designed to take advantage of scenic, natural and constructed features. Examples of the CCC’s work includes: Table Rock State Park Dam, the lodge, bathhouse, concession building, cabins, trail and picnic shelters, fish rearing pools, warden’s building and several trails. Listed in the National Register June 15, 1989.
