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.

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.
