I knew about the tunnel when I went to Clemson in 1964 and 1965, use to camp near the falls almost every weekend. I loved it, it hasn't changed much since, been back at least 20 times. Lived near it in 1977 thru 1979 when I returned to Clemson and could hear the falls at night, anyone who goes will love it. By the way the gate is where they kept the cheese when Clemson ran Blue Cheese there, now its for the bats. Bring a lunch and be sure to see the falls

This is a large tunnel near Walhalla, SC. We were staying in Oconee SP and decided to check it out. Take a light jacket and a flashlight. It is really dark. We walked a ways (maybe 1/4 mile?) back into the tunnel and found a gate. The gate was closed so we assumed this was the end of the tunnel. The kids liked it. It was really cool in there and felt great on a hot summer day. My dog enjoyed the puddles of water. The ground is uneven in there, so be careful. It took us less than an hour to see this site. Part of that time my kids were rock climbing near a little creek (stream) to the side of the tunnel.

What an interesting place! There are a couple of information boards posted so you can read the history of Stumphouse Tunnel, which was being constructed for trains to go through, but they ran out of funds when the Civil War started and never completed the project. Essentially you walk into the tunnel as far as they will let you go - there are a series of gates that they either open or close depending on the conditions in the tunnel at the time. Unfortunately when we were there they were in the middle of a very wet summer, so we could only walk to the first gate, which is still very far into the tunnel. Be sure to bring flashlights, because it gets very dark and the floor is uneven. This won't take a lot of time, but it is a fun place to visit. Isaqueena Falls are nearby as well, which is another recommended stop.

The tunnel is wet at times and dark, but a great bit of history. Also the falls at the same park are lovely with a little creek and covered bridge walkway. It is maintained by the city of Wahalla so please keep it clean for others to enjoy. A lovely little side trip.
