We booked a 7 night stay with our 30' RV at campsite near the lake. Campsites are very spacious and many provide some privacy unlike many other state parks. Rangers are best and nicest I have ever seen. They were very helpful with answers to...More

The campground offers nice size campsites. I really liked that most sites had plenty of shade. The check in procedure at the well stocked camp store was easy as I had a reservation. The bathhouse was clean but "tired" and in need of a facelift....More

Oconee state park is one of my favorite places to visit, all year round. In the summer, you're able to rent paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks. You're also able to play mini golf. In the winter, they still offer the canoes. There are multiple hiking...More

We visited this park to hike to Hidden Falls. Wasn't a crazy long hike but I would rank it as a moderate difficulty trail. The waterfall itself wasn't that impressive, but it's always nice to check out a new fall.

You would need to check with SC state parks. They have a reservation website.

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!
