Introduction


Oconee State Park
has all of the perks of a relaxing mountain getaway. The Oconee State Park campground, Rustic, CCC-era cabins and a lake with a swimming hole, canoe rentals and fishing opportunities are only a sample of the park’s offerings.

Several wooded nature trails wind through the foothills region and serve as the southern trailhead for the Foothills Trail, South Carolina’s 80-mile wilderness hike on the Blue Ridge Escarpment.

Oconee is the perfect place for a family getaway with nostalgic activities such as square dancing during the summer months, Fourth of July festivities and other holiday events.

Make plans to enjoy a weekend hiking the Foothills Trail, South Carolina fishing and boating or just hanging out at the Oconee State Park campground.
