SPECIAL NOTICE:  Oconee State Park will be lowering the cabin lake after Labor Day to allow for work to begin on the lake’s historic spillway.  There will be no pedal boat rentals during this time, as they will have to be removed from the water.  We do not anticipate this hampering our fishing program or other boat rentals such as the jon boats or canoes. We will post updates as the work begins regarding lake levels and status.

Planning on camping, reserving a cabin or attending one of our popular programs in 2016, 2017 or 2018?  Click here to find out which dates these programs fall on in the upcoming years!

WI-FI! We now have complimentary wi-fi in all of our cabins at Oconee. We hope this helps to enhance your stay!

Our Ultimate Outsider stamp can be found inside the office during operating hours and also on the front porch of the office just by the office door.

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.
