Keowee-Toxaway State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This area of South Carolina is known as the Cherokee Foothills. And rightly so, for the Cherokee thrived here long before the white man ever laid eyes on this land. South Carolina recognized this, and Keowee-Toxaway celebrates Indian culture in the natural setting of the Cherokee at this quiet, well-maintained state park.

This is a region steeped in human and natural history. These mountains played a significant role in the formation and westward expansion of our country. Oftentimes, this expansion was at the expense of the Cherokee, who battled the settler and lost, but eventually managed to hold on to some of their
ancestral lands. Aside from a few Civil War skirmishes, this land became a forgotten backwater, the land of “do-without.”"
