Just returned from a long weekend at Oconee State Park with my husband, 14 year old son, and 12 year old daughter. We had so much fun! We stayed in cabin 3 by the lake. The cabin was rustic but totally comfortable with ac, fridge, stove/oven, shower, etc. We spent much of our cabin time on the screened-in porch rocking... More

My wife and I stayed here for a long 4 day weekend. We rented a cabin.The cabin was clean and had everything in it we needed. We had a great time. The park staff was helpful and kind. We almost cried when we had to leave to go back home.

My husband and I rented a rustic CCC cabin by the lake. I loved the history of the cabin while still being clean and comfortable. The park was well maintained and offered numerous activities. We will be back to explore this beautiful area further

The place was nice but they did a poor job of advertising on their site. We camped at a rustic tent site and the only reason I chose this over a standard site was due to the fact that it was lakefront. When we got there though we could not see the lake due to all the trees and had... More

We come from Clemson for the hiking, lake, and especially the diving boards. My kids can spend hours on the high and low drives monitored by a lifeguard.

Oconee State Park might just be the best place on Earth! The Ranger staff offers great entertainment and activities for the kids over the summer. We usually stay over the 4th of July and have a blast with the field and water games. The cabins are quaint and small but comfortable and clean. We love sitting on the back porch... More

We have stayed at Oconee State Park numerous times over the years. This is a great park for families with children. They have activities for the children and adults. You can rent a boat and fish. Good place to disconnect. There is wifi at the rangers station. Grocery store in Seneca just a few miles away. The cabins are rustic... More

Today we went to Station Cove Historical Site and hiked to the Station Cove Waterfall. This was an easy hike to a very nice waterfall. The trial splits off and you can hike 2.7 miles to the Oconee State Park. Four members of our group hiked this mostly uphill trial and the rest of us drove to Oconee State Park.... More

This our second time in the last month camping here. We were on the lake loop which has a completely renovated Bath House on that side. Hopefully they do all the others the same way. We would like to see more of the park staff or campground volunteers especially after it should be quiet hours. Park staff did help us... More
