Our Favorite Things to Do at Jarvis Creek Park

Go Fishing

Few things are more relaxing than spending a day fishing. When you head out to Jarvis Creek Park, bring along your rods and some bait. Then, head to the fishing dock to catch some Bluegill and Largemouth bass. However, don’t forget to return the fish to their habitat—the park has a strict catch-and-release policy.

Host a Picnic

The park features an 11-acre lake as well as 53 acres of land providing you with plenty of room to relax. Pick up some items for a private outdoor picnic before heading to the park. You can spread a blanket out on the grass or take advantage of the many picnic areas throughout the park. After your lunch, take a walk along the 1.1-mile loop around the lake.


Did you know that exercising in nature can elevate feelings of motivation and happiness? If you’re looking for a good place for a jog, this is the perfect place to work out. The park even features outdoor workout equipment to supplement your run around the lake. This is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery and get your daily exercise in before exploring the rest of Hilton Head!
