Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

Long Shoals Roadside Park is located on the Cherokee Scenic Highway (Highway 11) about 2 miles from Keowee Toxaway State Park. It is an easily accessible area to enjoy a picnic and to cool off in the waters of Eastotoe Creek. There is a designated picnic area on a grassy wooded hill at the parking lot. A staircase and trail lead to the creek. There are areas to wade in water up to 3 feet deep and slick rocks that can be used as a slide. This stop makes for a perfect break and nature stop while you are on a long drive.
