“Small state park in Jocassee Gorges with kayaking/canoeing access to beautiful Lake Keowee and 5 mile hiking trail with waterfalls.”

Reviewed Feb 28, 2016

Overall Rating

The correct name of this park is Keowee-Toxaway State Park. We have camped in this park a few times as it's close to home for us. Located in Jocassee Gorges, named in National Geographic's 50 of the World's Last Great Places : http://www.oconeesc.com/Portals/0/Documents/Council/NatGeo%2050%20of%20the%20Worlds%20Last%20Great%20Places.pdf
This SC park is the smaller and less crowded park of all the others nearby -Table Rock State Park, Devil's Fork State Park and Oconee State Park. We prefer it. There is a boat ramp for non-motorized boats only. The hike is a great moderate to strenuous 4.4 mile loop, or you can opt for the shorter 1.3 mile loop trail. Both lovely and scenic. The park is strictly pack in pack out- no trash cans. There are recycling receptacles, and a dump station. 10 RV sites and 10 tent sites. The park office is also the Jocassee Gorges Visitor Center and it is a beautiful restored historic building. Rangers are helpful and nice. Bathrooms are very nice, heated, and hot showers. We usually camp here off season and so there are only a few other campers here. Winter is a great time because you get wonderful views from the campsites that would be obscured by the tree leaves in other seasons.
