  • 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.

  • Plenty of parking, clean bathrooms, cold water straight out of the water fountain, scenic picnic area, short hike to great fishing at the Oconee Station Pond, the tour of the historic site itself is precious, and a well maintained hiking path to the gorgeous Oconee Station Falls! What's not to love.
  • Great, out of the way, park with easy walking trails and great waterfall and a huge, furry, white beast who likes to roam the trail and escort visitors.
  • Nice little area with lake and waterfall my only complaint is waterfall distance is misleading as it's further if you start at the park instead of the trailhead. Also there's no indication or sign that there's a trailhead you can park and go to the waterfall. The waterfall hike isn't bad at all if you start at the trailhead, start at the park and double the distance.
  • Pleasant, short hike. Great for small kids.
