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

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

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.
