Beautiful park with a beach, boat ramp, and shelters. They had fishing poles to check out for my 9 y/o son which was a great amenity. The staff gave us suggestions for hikes in the area - we did Yellow Branch Falls -

Great park!! RV spaces are really nice !!! Lots of geese so there is lots of poop everywhere !!! Almost impossible to take a step on any beach or grassy area without stepping in some !! Not a great situation ( especially with children )

Family day a the park swimming, playing on the playground, outdoor checkers. The park is well kept. Beautiful view of Lake Keowee. Enjoy a relaxing swing overlooking the lake. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on the picnic tables near the lake in the shade.
