Oconee Station State Historic Site
**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp is located on the porch of the park office and at the trail head at Station Cove Falls.
Originally a military compound and later a trading post, Oconee Station State Historic Site offers both recreational opportunities and a unique look at 18th and 19th century South Carolina. Oconee Station, a stone blockhouse used as an outpost by the S.C. State Militia from about 1792 to 1799, and the William Richards House, are the only two structures that remain today.
Beyond the park’s historic significance, there’s a fishing pond and 1.5-mile nature trail that connects hikers to a trail leading into Sumter National Forest and ending at Station Cove Falls. The spring is an awesome time to view an abundance of wildflowers along this trail in and around Sumter National Forest and the majestic Station Cove Falls.
Stay at the nearby Oconee State Park campground and enjoy two great parks in the same day!
