There are 2 buildings to see at this site...the Stone Block House and the traders house. These buildings were used in the 1790s and are extremely well preserved. If you are a history buff, you will want to see these buildings. There is a pond close by that you can walk to and Station Cove Falls is about a mile... More

Not far off the main roads, this park is easy to get to and has Station Cove Falls to see, which is well worth the short hike.

Lots of history & beautiful hiking. A very pleasant & serene place. There is some history that the employees can tell you about that really takes you back in time.

We visited the historic site late in the afternoon and didn't have time to hike to the falls this time. We had visited the nearby Issaqueena Falls and Stumphouse Tunnel earlier in the afternoon. The ranger was very knowledgeable of the history of the site and the time period. In addition to the main floor of both historic buildings, we... More

The falls and trip down to them were gorgeous! We had a great time travelling down to reach the bottom. The hike was easy enough, with some tougher spots, but nothing too difficult. Families with children or senior citizens should be able to complete it just fine. Sadly, leash laws are not enforced. This is especially disappointing with so many... More

Once again there were few people at the historic site/park. Not many picnic tables--clustered close together, great for groups and families. Really appreciated the grounds and peaceful quiet. A number of info boards and history to the place. We read it all. We were impressed to learn there were guided tours on the weekends. A Sr aged couple was just... More

The park has two different stopping points. If you pull up into the park it's right by the old houses. If wanting to take a longer hike to the waterfall walk on the blue trail for about 30min. Once you hit the end of that trail you will end up on a road(at the other parking spot closer to the... More

There is much to see and enjoy, at this historical site. There are old buildings to visit, and 3 trails to hike------a short trail, around the pond; a moderate trail, to a beautiful waterfalls; and a longer trail, to Oconee State Park. This site is located a one mile drive off of Hwy. #11, just north of Picket Post, SC.
