“Cool piece of history!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

This is a really neat place to visit. Very historical! The tunnel is really cool. Issaqueena Falls are located near the tunnel however I hope that someone will trim some of the trees that are hanging near the area to overlook the falls. Its difficult to get a clear look at the falls!

“Piece of History and a Waterfall Bonus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

A great one stop County Park stop to history at Stumphouse Tunnel and a very beautiful waterfall in the same park. We had a picnic at their picnic area first located between the two sites. The tunnel is a "cool" take as it is very cool temperature wise inside. Bring some light with you as it is rather dark. The tunnel access is an easy walk from the parking area.
The falls is a little more challenging to get to as you approach it from the very top and there is a trail that follows down for a short distance that offers easy access but the continuation towards the bottom of the falls is a bit challenging but worth the challenge. The sight is nothing short of beautiful. If I had a chair, I would have sat there all day taking in the beauty and the sound of the falling water. The story of the naming of the falls (Isaqueena) is interesting as well. There is a small fee to enter the park per vehicle.

“Cool Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

It was a dreary day with lots of rain making the picnic tables obsolete for us. However, we enjoyed the walks to the Falls and exploring the Tunnel. This is certainly worth the stop.

Visited on a very cold day, glad the walk was very short. Nice explanation of the origins of the tunnel.

“Always Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

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
