  • Amazing place, been here a couple of times and both times its been wonderful. Little bit of a hike to get there, but not impossible. The falls are definately worth the effort..

  • Went there last week and was very happy with the size of the waterfall. Walking stick/pole came in handy multiple times. Seems armadillos are a fairly common site in this general area.
  • King Creek Falls is one of the gorgeous waterfall located in South Carolina. Once you park at the Burrell’s Ford Campground Parking, look for the information board. You find the Trailhead Marker. The waterfalls is about 0.7 miles (one way) from the parking. It may take around 35-50 mins for the one way hike based on hiking speed, stops, etc. From the parking lot, you can use the foothills trail. King creek falls shows 0.5 miles hike distance. Please note that the 0.5 mile feels like 1 mile as the hike is moderate and tiring. The trail is narrow for most of the parts with tree roots crossing the trail at several points. Moreover, the trail can be slippery if it rains, so watch your step. It’s all worth it once you see the waterfall. The view is mesmerizing with all the greenery surrounding it.
