Keowee-Toxaway State Natural Area Professional Review and Guide
"This area of South Carolina is aptly named the Cherokee Foothills. The Cherokee thrived here long before white settlers ever laid eyes on the land. South Carolina recognizes this, and Keowee- Toxaway celebrates native culture in the natural setting of the Cherokee Foothills at this quiet, well-maintained state natural area.It is situated on a well-wooded knoll that tastefully integrates campsites with the steep terrain using well-placed landscaping an outstanding timbers. Shade is abundant beneath the canopy of state park. Hickories and oaks, though a relatively light understory somewhat diminishes privacy. Tent campers have their own separate loop. No loud generators will interfere with the sounds of chirping birds. The 14 tent sites are all spacious and level enough for setting up a normal amount of gear, but expect some seriously sloping topography."
