Of all the parks we’ve been to, Oconee State Park probably surprised me the most. I’m not sure what I expected, but definitely NOT what we found. First of all, let’s be honest, who goes to Oconee County?! (If you’re reading this and you’re from OC, I apologize!)
But seriously. I’m sure the town is lovely, but you’re not likely to find it in the pages of Travel & Leisure.
From the above photo, you can tell we visited right before Halloween. They decorated bales of hay throughout the park – so creative!
Into the Woods we go… to play corn hole, checkers and swing!
JP was all smiles (shocker) on the hiking trail.
Cozy cabins are tucked in a quiet spot beside the lake.
That moment you realize there’s a putt putt course next to the park office…
Oconee State Park has set the bar pretty high! From Greenville, it’s roughly an hour and twenty five minute drive, but worth every penny you’ll spend on the gas to get there, I promise.
It’s always a good idea to check the park website before you go, especially this close to the holidays.
