I went this past weekend and had a wonderful time. They have a nice visitors center but it is only opened for a couple hours during the day. There are various hiking trails that are offered right on site that either lead to little water falls or the beautiful large lake that over look s a golf course. The lake... More

Hiked the Natural Bridge Trail. It is a 1.3 mile loop trail leading to... surprise... a natural bridge formation. The hike has several strenuous areas so be prepared. There is a small visitors center with displays and gifts. A nice visit.

Had an absolute blast with my friends. The hike was pretty strenuous, but I think that was mostly due to us not being backpackers on the regular and never having hiked in mountainous territory. 2 1/2 miles of up and down. I recommend drinking water straight from the running creek and waterfall! So refreshing and delicious! We camped at site... More

Little gem of Salem, took the natural bridge hike. Only 1.3 miles but be careful of the last .5 uphill . Took a lunch down to the launch very nice view of the river and golf course. Great info center in 100 year old church. Don't miss it if you have time

Visited the park on Labor Day weekend. Nice hiking trail (2 actually) 1.3 mile trail was moderate difficulty, bug free no real God views. Some small trickle waterfalls. But a good hike. Lake access for kayaks. But the picnic area is across the highway, this area is just for picnics, pavilions and rest rooms. No lake access. Picnic sites are... More

One ranger there clearly do not want the foreign campers who use this park to use the Free Wifi or ( God Forbid !) if you actually plug in your laptop into an electrical outlet on the outside of THEIR plush rangers cabin. One turned off the WiFi! Can one get any more mean spirited? Park itself nice clean bathrooms... More

This was our first stay in this park. We used 2 sites in the designated tent area and were pleased with our stay. The bathhouse was clean as well as the rest of the park. There are no trash cans so take it with you when you leave. We really enjoyed the picnic area across the road. We used it... More

Some locals in the weekend in dock area, but... More

Quiet camp sites. Only 10, staying away from the hustle and bustle of large lake access. Boat access to the lake "lake Keowee" within 5 miles. Park has many hiking trails and the Rangers are EXCEPTIONALLY helpful. Even though a small park, plan several weeks ahead as many people like the non hustle bustle of a larger park setting.
