Chau Ram park is located at the confluence of Ramsey Creek and the Chauga River and is Oconee County’s “Best Kept Secret.” Visitors can enjoy 26 campsites, ready with water and electricity, over three miles of hiking trails and over a mile of the Chauga River running through the park with rapids such as the pumphouse rapids, can-opener and the V rapid. The main attractions of the park include a handicap accessible 40 foot waterfall cascading over large boulders as the Ramsey Creek flows into the Chauga River and a 160 foot suspension bridge spanning the Chauga River. Tubing, hiking, fishing, picnicking, camping and sight- seeing are routine activities enjoyed by visitors. The park also includes four rental areas for larger parties and gatherings, a new playground area, and is a favorite site for weddings.
