Situated in the northernmost corner of South Carolina, the county is home to three parks:

Chau Ram Park’s name is a blend of the bodies of water that flow through the park. Here, Ramsey Creek meets the Chauga River, forming a picture-worthy waterfall. A suspension bridge over the river provides another vantage point for photos. Activities in the park include tubing, hiking, fishing, picnicking and camping on one of 26 sites.
