Oconee State Park

One of our favorite SC state parks we like to camp at is Oconee State Park. It is located in Mountain Rest, SC, and consists of 1165 acres. The southern end of the 85-mile Foothills Trail and the western end of the Oconee Passage of the Palmetto Trail are also located in this park.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) created this park in the 1930s. There are fifteen cabins, the superintendent’s residence, four picnic shelters, a bathhouse, and a swimming lake. You can swim, rent canoes, and fish here.

The campground has 139 sites with water and electric and 15 designated tent sites.

Near the swimming lake is a CCC replica waterwheel plus an eighteen-hole miniature golf course.
