Located in Oc onee County, also known as South Carolina’s Golden Corner, Oconee State Park is perched at 1,800 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains, offering a cool place to camp during the long, hot summer. But the park offers much more than that. For starters, the walk-in tent-camping sites stack up to any others in the state and make the park’s other campsites pale in comparison. The mountain terrain features great hiking, especially when you add in the trails of Sumter National Forest, which borders much of the park. The much-touted Foothills Trail begins here, marching 76 miles to Table Rock State Park or alternatively to Jones Gap State Park. Oconee State Park has two lakes for fishing and swimming. Nearby, the federally designated Wild and Scenic Chattooga River has outfitters ready to take you on guided white-water trips.
