The camp sites are on top of each other. Unfortunately we had 2 camp sites that were not respectful of the 10 p.m. quiet time ( Midnight for one and 1:00 am for the other). One family continued to walk through our site even though we picked the site furthest from the others. The park office closes at 5:00 pm... More

My family goes camping at least twice a year, usually in the mountains. Camping at Keowee-Toxaway was a wonderful addition to our memories. This is a small, well maintained campground with a good comfort station that is kept clean. The Natural Bridge and Raven Rock hiking trails are wonderful, especially if you start out early in the morning. The natural... More

The national park system is a very accommodating host! We wanted to stay in a cabin on Lake Keowee last fall. Ask Lake Keowee-Toxaway State Park, and you shall receive. We reserved the cabin that came with its own dock. The cabin itself is rustic on the outside, and very comfortable within, including cable TV and a microwave in its... More

This was my first time hiking into an area to camp. The hike wasn't too long and strenuous (don't get me wrong it was tough, but not "I have to throw up" tough"). I packed in about 60lbs worth of stuff including enough dog food for 4 days. Hiking at what I thought to be a solid pace, I made... More

Well marked, wide trail. Not too strenuous, but still provides a workout for the legs. Enjoyed with my 17 year old daughter. Beautiful area with many small waterfalls.

Please bring 13 of your closest friends when camping here! There are 14 tent sites and they are right on top of each other. There are at least two that require walking through another campsite to access. One group in our party could not have a fire in his fire ring because it was too close to his tent. The... More

I have been paddle boarding, hiking, boating and swimming at keowee taxaway state park and always am impressed with the state of the park. Take advantage of the trails and go up to a few of the lookouts over the lake

This was the perfect little state park for a weekend visit. We didn't feel overwhelmed without an opportunity to see everything. The camp sites are well maintained and all are an easy enough walk to the bathroom (which there is no AC, so in the middle of the summer, showers aren't that refreshing). The price of the site was extremely... More
