The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

The SC Petroglyph Site is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, from 10am – 4 pm. Currently there is no fee to visit the site, however on third Saturday events there is a charge of $5 per person 13 years and older. This lovely building is handicapped accessible, climate controlled, includes an orientation lobby where visitors can browse the displays and watch a video of the story of the discovery and dig. Visitors will move from the lobby into the main Viewing Room. From the comfort of a viewing ramp, in a darkened environment, visitors will be treated to a light show with audio narration from Tommy Charles telling about specific petroglyphs. There are thirty-two distinct petroglyphs at this site, eighteen represent people, and several are abstracts, but they all have one thing in common – THEY ARE AWESOME. Plan your visit today.
