We loved it here. Our campsite was an amazing view of the water. South Carolina State parks have so many amazing parks. Very different from GA. They pick up your trash, you can use canoes and John boats for free. All sites have water and electricity. There were so many bath houses around the park. The whole park was very well maintained.
We had a wonderful time! The staff were kind and helpful. The facilities were clean and modern. The Hidden Falls trail was well worth the effort. The park is conveniently located to several quaint towns for dining, shopping and exploring. We are already planning a return trip!
Nice park in close proximity to other preserved natural areas. Upstate SC is doing the right thing by prioritizing parks and conservation which brings in people and provides access to the public. I support catch and release but this bass was already out of the water.
Bathhouses are pretty gross but are large. The swimming area is great for the kids with really affordable boat rentals and such. Our children loved everything about the square dancing in the big house on Friday night!
The park was very clean and friendly. Staff was very nice. The lake and diving boards were a lot of fun! The hiking trails seemed shorter then advertised but were very nice.
