    High Falls County Park is one of three county run campgrounds in Oconee County, SC. We have camped in 2 of the 3 and have been them to be great places to camp. High Falls was well run and the staff were nice and helpful. There are 3 Loops and we were on Site #10 on the Anglers Loop. We backed up to the pretty blue green waters of Lake Keowee. The lake was built in the '60s and '70s as part of a project that included a nuclear power plant. The other two loops don't are not on the water. The bathrooms are some of best kept I have seen anywhere. They clean them twice a day or at least check to see if they need it. Sites are gravel and include water and electricity. The Anglers Loop would be the shadiest of the three loops.

    Other things to do at the Park include a boat ramp and fishing pier. There are two swimming areas and picnic areas along the lake too. For those who like a game of Putt-Putt, there is a course, $1 per game. The offices and camp store are located in a beautiful old home built in 1830 which has a huge porch across the front and back of it.

    Nearby, things in include the mountains of South Carolina where you find the Sumter National Forest, several State Parks, Oconee, Devil's Fork, Keowee-Toxaway, and Oconee Station Historic Site. All of them would give you plenty of places for hiking and other outdoor activities. Nearby cities are Seneca, Walhalla and Clemson.
