Camping is also available for tents, RVs and there's one cabin available also. Lake Keowee is so beautiful and the park offers scenic views. You'll get a nice workout but it's not exhausting hiking over the 5.5 miles of trails.

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...More

It has been a few years since I was over there. The trail crosses water and even goes down to Lake Keowee at one end, so probably your best bet is a decent purification device and some water bottles. Rather than trying... More
