We usually camp in NC state parks and decided to give a SC state park a try. What a vast difference. We will not be returning to this park. While check-in was quick and easy the employee was paying more attention to someone else in the store carrying on a conversation with them. No introduction to their park, where we were to go, where things were located, just here's your parking pass. The site was very nice which was the only plus. Very level and paved, not very wide. We had a lakefront site. The last people left their bag of trash in the fire ring which was not cleaned out. Looks like the ashes had never been cleaned out as they were just about to the top of the ring. While you could get down to the water from the site it was a considerable climb. Once we did make the climb down it very dirty. Dead fish floating on the he edges, lots of trash and debris. Very funky smell. They did have a swimming area if you could call it that. No beach. Had to walk over large rocks to get in the water. The swimming area was at the boat launch so on a Saturday there was much boat traffic and you had to keep an eye out for the boaters. We very rarely saw any staff through the park. Every NC state park we have been to there is constant staff around. We will not be returning to this park. Very disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Arrived at 5:00pm for check-in, which was easy. Check-in is at lakefront store. On arrival at site, it needed to be cleaned from leaves, pinestraw and debris. Fire ring was full of ashes from previous campers. From the appearance, it had been a while since it was cleaned. It was ok as we were still able to build our fire. Later in the evening they did bring a tractor around blowing road and empty sites. Problem, it was at a time we were cooking/eating outside. Site is good with good spacing to other sites. Park has no Wi-Fi. MiFi (AT&T) would not work from site. Cell service spotty with one bar and often searching for signal from site but near store/lake service gets better. Store is nice with basic items. Firewood $4.95/bundle. TV gets 4 channels with antenna. New looking play area for kids near store. Most lakefront sites are view only as you are up on a hill with a steep drop off at waters edge. There is a area set aside for swimming next to the store. This park was built in 1984 so it is one of the newest. Why they did not put in sewer at the time, who knows. Overall, this is a great place to stay and we will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is my favorite State Park. All sites are deep, completely shaded, and have excellent space between sites. It is well maintained and mostly quiet except a few kids on weekends/holiday. Noisy parties are stopped and evicted. Large lake for fish/boating with ramp and trailer parking. Bathhouse is heated with hot/cold water and kept clean. Camp store for ice and other incidentals. Pads are level and clean. It is about 8 miles from I-77 and 15 miles from nearest town of Winnsboro. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
