Keowee-Toxaway State Park is a young persons camp overall. The hiking trails are moderate to strenuous to see their waterfalls. They do have one large cabin that overlooks the lake, located down by the boat launch.

If you have an hour, hike the Natural Bridge Trail. It is a loop trail. If open, check out the exhibit area and gift shop.

We camped here for two nights. The bath house was clean and effective, though it could have been a tad warmer. There are plenty of trails and activities to keep your day full of excitement. None of the RV sites officially have sewer, however site 9 did appear to have a sewer connection. Worth investigating if you're going to be... More

We camped here in our RV for a long weekend. State Park has a 4.5 mile loop trail with waterfalls and also follows along Lake Keowee. Also has 1/2 mile trail from campground to lake. New, really nice, ramp for canoes/kayaks to access the lake. Campground is small (18 sites total-10 RV and 8 tent) with nice bathhouse. This park... More

If you have a few hours and want to see a beautiful hiking area with nicely groomed trails, nice waterfalls and streams with walking bridges and swimming areas, you need to check this place out! We have been here now three times and have taken different trails each time. You can choose depending on how much time you have and... More

Nice place to lunch, walk and spend a quiet day. Like all the parks in the upstate, this one is pretty quiet.

It's on Lake Keowee, there's really not much more needed to say. Keowee is a true gem of lake with pristine water for swimming, boating, diving.

Amazing hike. Great for an afternoon with a rest and snack on raven rock. We did the entire loop in 2 hours. Took the dogs with no problems. Only saw several others out for a hike. Diverse landscape as you hike.

We brought the kids out here for a little hike and a bit of geocaching. We found a couple of caches, one that was particularly exciting, and then hiked on to the natural bridge. Truth be told, I wouldn't have noticed it had it not been for the kids, who loved playing around it, under it, in the stream. We... More

We like to hike the Natural Bridge trail when we have the kids or guests in town. It is a nice 1.5 mile trail that takes about 40 or so minutes. It has a couple of little waterfalls and a creek bed. There is a bit of climbing, but nothing strenuous so it is nice for kids and we love... More
