  • Even though this siight has very little to offer by way of attraction..it is still a very nice quaint piece of our nations history. I think best time to check it out is when they have an event or reen...  more »
  • Wonderful place to photograph. Short, easy walk to Station falls is accessible to families with younger children. As always though, be alert for snakes near the falls.  more »

  • A nice play for a day trip. Lots of Waterfall options are within a short drive from here. Easy to access and higher in the hills means lower temperatures during the hot months.
  • Stopped by on way home. Wanted to see another waterfall, followed the signs (very few) for nearly 40 minutes winding up and down, just to come to a road, maybe 1 hundred yards up from the park entrance was the ACTUAL entrance to the waterfall path. Wasted all that time due to no information about the waterfall being technically outside of this area. Was so tired, we didn't even see the waterfall. I didn't want to leave our car so far away just to go on another 30 minutes hike down to the waterfall. Thanks Oconee for the info, by the way...there was plenty of places.to put a sign or information regarding that.
  • I beleive this is the oldest building in South Carolina. Very historical and educational. Great for kids.
  • Nice piece of history tucked away in a beautiful area surrounded by gorgeous sites
  • Nice walk and the falls are wonderful for vary little effort to get to
