“Camp in the Foothills of South Carolina!”

Visitors can find the unforgettable peace and repose of a deep mountain cove at Jones Gap State Park. Trails and 11,000 acres of pristine mountain woodlands join the park with Caesars Head in what is known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. The Jones Gap State Park trails allow hikers to traverse between the two parks, as well as connect to a portion of the Foothills Trail South Carolina hikers know and love. When it comes to angling-especially trout fishing-South Carolina really shines. The state’s first designated scenic river, the Middle Saluda River, runs through Jones Gap and offers some of the best trout fishing South Carolina has to offer–and the trout fishing in South Carolina is quite good. The park also features a living lab for the park’s hand-on ecology learning center. Camping Information : Camping is allowed only on designated campsites. Camping in other than designated areas may result in a fine. No drive up campsites are available on the park. There are no water or electricity provided at the campsites.

This state park is ideal for mountain views, more rigorous hiking, and what’s purported to be some of the state’s best trout fishing. Savor the waterfall views that the trails afford, and wade in the river to cool off if you’re visiting during an Upcountry heat spell.

Jones Gap is an absolutely stunning trail back into nature. The camping sites are right next to the river where you can hear the water while you sleep! Most campsites come with some sort of fireplace so you can cook out and you can bring pets with you as well. I recommend it to everyone I come across. This is not your over-manicured city park; this is real beauty.
