Explore the 47: Oconee State Park

IMG_1266Of 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.

IMG_1277Oconee 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.
