Chau Ram County Park – Westminster, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Oconee County Photos  |  Chau Ram County Park

Chau Ram County Park (pronounced “chaw-ram”) in Wesminster takes its name from the two bodies of water that flow through the park’s four miles of natural trails – the Chauga River and Ramsey Creek. Ramsey Creek Falls, also called Chau Ram Falls, is the result of water from Ramsey Creek emptying into Chauga River, falling 40 feet from the top of the rocks to the pool below. The scenic cascade sits adjacent to the parking lot and invites visitors to picnic, rock hop, and explore the mountain air.

The county’s longest suspension bridge at 160 feet, seen below, crosses the Chauga River and leads to the hiking trails along its river banks. Beaches and shallow pools along the river allow for splashing and swimming, while more waterfalls flow downstream. The park makes for a full day of recreation or even longer for those who love camping and want more time in the mountain oasis.

Chau Ram County Park has 28 campsites equipped with power, water, and a bathhouse, along with covered picnic tables, 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. Four sets of rapids and a kayak slalom course are available from within the park for those who love the challenge of whitewater.

No lifeguards are on duty at the park, so all swimming and water sports come at your own risk. The park is open from March 1 through December 1.

Reflections on St. Thaddeus


Allen Easler, who has a fantastic site about waterfalls in South Carolina, took the beautiful picture of Chau Ram Falls above. Allen says that this is one of his favorite waterfalls to visit in our state because it is easy to reach and offers great views for a picnic.
