Chau-Ram Falls – Westminster, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Oconee County Photos  |  Chau-Ram Falls

Chau-Ram Falls (pronounced “chaw-ram”) is located within Chau-Ram County Park in Westminster. This 40-foot cascading waterfall is the centerpiece of the park, which is often referred to as Oconee County‘s best kept secret.

The waterfall’s name comes from a combination of Chauga River and Ramsey Creek, the two bodies of water that merge to create the Chau-Ram Park. There are five other waterfalls located along the Chauga River which you can reach by crossing a lovely suspension bridge and following hiking trails throughout the area.

Chau-Ram Park also has four picnic shelters and 28 campsites equipped with power, water, and a bathhouse, making this a great gathering spot for friends and family. For the adventurous, whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, and tubing are popular activities along the Chauga River.

Ramsey Creek, pictured above, is also home to the Ramsey Creek Preserve – the first eco-friendly cemetery in the United States.

Based in Westminister, Ramsey Creek Preserve is a pioneer in environmentally-responsible burials. The preserve was formed in 1996 to promote wildlife protection and restoration, as well as to fund non-profits, education, and research. The company ultimately strives to provide families with an alternate burial option that is less expensive and more meaningful.

Chau-Ram Falls – Add Info and More Photos


The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Chau-Ram Falls, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
