Not much to do in the fall. Hike a few minutes and left. Unless you are a camper, this is a pass. Very small park. We kept looking for the rest of it.

My husband and I rented a rustic CCC cabin by the lake. I loved the history of the cabin while still being clean and comfortable. The park was well maintained and offered numerous activities. We will be back to explore this beautiful area further

The place was nice but they did a poor job of advertising on their site. We camped at a rustic tent site and the only reason I chose this over a standard site was due to the fact that it was lakefront. When we got...More

We come from Clemson for the hiking, lake, and especially the diving boards. My kids can spend hours on the high and low drives monitored by a lifeguard.

You would need to check with SC state parks. They have a reservation website.
I'm looking at staying at a rustic campsite. They have two groupings: one near the parking lot and one near the lake. I'm wondering if anyone knows how close the lake sites are to the water. Would we be able to see the lake from our site, or have to hike through some trees to get there? It's a longer hike into the lake sites, so I'd only want to stay there if we have the benefit of being right on the water. Thanks!

Hi! Didn't stay in the campground this trip through, only was there for a beautiful day. You can call the park directly at 864-638-5353. I'm sure they could answer your question. Have a great time!
