Chau-Ram Falls is nestled in Chau-Ram County Park in upstate South Carolina. The park has a $2 entry fee per vehicle and features public camping, hiking, swimming, fishing, and kayaking. There are restrooms, showers, a vending machine, and even a pay phone. When was the last time you saw a pay phone?
There is a 3-mile loop trail, but you don’t have to hike to see the waterfall. I’m labeling this as an attraction because you can basically pull your car up to the cascade. It is nestled right behind the park office.
The waterfall is at the confluence of Ramsey Creek and the Chauga River and features a 40-foot drop and was heavy with water on the day I visited. Don’t expect this much of a flow unless there has been torrential rainfall in the preceding days.
This area is filled with waterfalls. Some have proper trailheads with parking lots and others are hidden gems just off forestry roads. I own and use this book to plan multi-site trips. The waterfalls are broken down by region, so it makes planning easy. I highly recommend it.
