Welcome to the Town of Kingstree, SC!
Kingstree is a small town nestled under majestic oaks in eastern South Carolina. We are perfectly situated approximately 75 miles from Charleston, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach. Our town is surrounded by hunting lands with an abundance of deer, turkey, ducks, and other wildlife. We also have the Black River running through our community for fishing and water fun. This makes Kingstree a Sportsman’s Paradise!
