FROM COLUMBIA, SC AND POINTS EAST
Travel west on I-26 to the first Newberry exit (SC 219, Exit #76).  Turn left from the ramp and go over the bridge toward Newberry.  At the second stop light (just past the infamous Wal-Mart), turn left onto US 76 (Wilson Blvd).  Travel through the next traffic light and on toward Prosperity.  Turn left at the park entrance just past the Ford dealership.  You can park in the gravel area just beyond the end of the paved road (and behind Piedmont Tech), or continue on into the park and follow the signs to the parking area and picnic pavilion.

FROM SPARTANBURG/GREENVILLE, SC AND POINTS WEST
Travel east on I-26 (from Spartanburg) or I-385 (from Spartanburg); both merge into I-26 in Laurens County.  Continue east to the second Newberry exit (SC 34, Exit #74).  Turn right and travel several miles toward Newberry.  At the second traffic light (US 76, Wilson Blvd) turn left and travel through two traffic lights and on toward Prosperity.  Turn left at the park entrance just past the Ford dealership.  You can park in the gravel area just beyond the end of the paved road (and behind Piedmont Tech), or continue on into the park and follow the signs to the parking area and picnic pavilion.

FROM GREENWOOD, SC AND POINTS SOUTH
From Greenwood get on SC 34 east.  Continue about 30 miles across the Saluda River (county line) and through the town of Silverstreet.  Eventually SC 34 merges with SC 121.  Turn left and continue on SC 121 toward Newberry.  As you get to Newberry you will see a bypass road to the left, continue straight; in about a mile, at the traffic light, turn right onto SC 34 bypass.  The bypass road continues several miles and through several intersections.  At the second light (US 76; not business 76), you will be at the entrance to the park between a Ford dealership (left) and Piedmont Tech (right).  You can park in the gravel area just beyond the end of the paved road (and behind Piedmont Tech), or continue on into the park and follow the signs to the parking area and picnic pavilion.

FROM WHITMIRE, SC AND POINTS NORTH
From Union travel South on US 176 toward Whitmire; as US 176 and SC 121 merge continue on US 176 (do not turn left).  From Chester travel south on US 121 toward Whitmire; as US 176 and SC 121 merge, continue on SC 121 by taking the left option.  Continue: Cross the Broad River into Newberry County and continue left on SC 121 / US 176 toward Newberry.  On the way, the road passes through the Sumter National Forest, including a pass of the Enoree District Ranger Station.  Just past this, US 176 and SC 121 split; stay to the right and continue on SC 121 toward Newberry.  Three miles past the junction with I-26 you will get to a stop light at US 76; turn left.  Continue through several stop lights (I think its 7) and several more miles; continue past the Wal-Mart.  Travel through the next traffic light and on toward Prosperity.  Turn left at the park entrance just past the Ford dealership.  You can park in the gravel area just beyond the end of the paved road (and behind Piedmont Tech), or continue on into the park and follow the signs to the parking area and picnic pavilion.
