One ranger there clearly do not want the foreign campers who use this park to use the Free Wifi or ( God Forbid !) if you actually plug in your laptop into an electrical outlet on the outside of THEIR plush rangers cabin. One turned off the WiFi! Can one get any more mean spirited? Park itself nice clean bathrooms... More

One of the best, or the best, camping ever because of the price and great setup of the camping sites..Very nice dock for kayaks and swimming, it is very nice and clean spot, water, and there are 2 small sand beaches too ( 3 min drive by car, very steep road). Some locals in the weekend in dock area, but... More

Quiet camp sites. Only 10, staying away from the hustle and bustle of large lake access. Boat access to the lake "lake Keowee" within 5 miles. Park has many hiking trails and the Rangers are EXCEPTIONALLY helpful. Even though a small park, plan several weeks ahead as many people like the non hustle bustle of a larger park setting.

Keowee-Toxaway State Park – 14 tent & 10 RV sites with water & electricity. Though there is a small recycle location at the dump/bathhouse, this is a trash free park (carry in-carry out). Garbage bags are available at the office. Park registration and ranger service(s) are limited to 11 AM - Noon & 4 PM - 5 PM. Alcohol is... More

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

It is really beautiful here in the foothills. Campsites are a bit close together, but the lake and hiking around the area make up for that. Bathhouse was clean and accessible. Most people here were quiet, respectful, and friendly.

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

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
