The S.C. Department of Natural Resources has re-opened the Samworth Wildlife Management Area in Georgetown County.

The property was closed due to downed power lines and tree limbs as a result of recent winter storms, according to a press release issued by SCDNR.

Samworth was a gift to the sportsmen of South Carolina from Thomas G. Samworth. Originally 500 acres in 1962, Samworth WMA has increased to 1,588 acres through state acquisitions and North American Wetlands Conservation Act grant acquisitions, according to the release.
