Great park! We really liked our stay here. The road into the campground is not paved, but was in good shape. The park office is in another section of the park and requires driving back out to the main highway and to the main park entrance. The road in the campground is gravel, as are the sites. Most, but not all, of the sites are fairly level. Several of the sites require creative backing and parking to fully utilize the site. It seemed as if everyone staying had a dog and no one cleaned up after them. There were doggie land mines all over the place. During our stay we rarely saw a park ranger and there was no camp host. AT&T service is good with 4G, park office has firewood at $6.00/bundle, TV reception is a limited number of channels, Bath house was older, but clean.
A great place to stay! One of the nicest campgrounds in the area. Sites are a little tight with no buffer between. Creek side sites are the better sites. Inner sites are mostly open with few trees. Sites are gravel and almost all are level. We had no issue with the roads while towing a 30 foot TT. Park is clean and well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. WiFi is good, a little slow at times, AT&T/4G cell service is good, Cable has about 70 channels, 50 amp service and good water pressure. They honor Good Sam and Passport America. Location is great to explore the area. If you have never seen elk before, worth the ride to see them. Office has directions.
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 from Monday thru Friday. It was mostly quite during the week but as the weekend approached, so to did the traffic and noise. It seemed that every site had a boat or jet skis along with several other vehicles that made the narrow roads appear more so. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. WiFi is available if you go up to the office area. AT&T cell service was good. Overall, we really like the park. We will probably visit again, but will do so when it is much cooler to avoid much of the boat and jet skis. If you like history, I would suggest checking out the Ninety Six National site.
Very pleasantly surprised! This is one of those state parks that is away from everything. Our stay was the most quiet stay we have had anywhere. The campground has gravel roads and the sites are packed gravel as well. All of the sites are mostly flat and level. Those that are not, would require minimal effort to level your camper. The sites are very spacious and all sites have trees/shrubs between them. Bathhouse was clean and well stocked. Staff and CG host all very friendly. AT&T 4G spotty at best, as was cell service. The only complaint I would have is there is no trash bin in the campground. All trash has to be taken to a recycle center near the front gate, which means taking a vehicle, bike, or a really long walk. We will stay here again when in the area
The park is in the process of a MAJOR renovation. Each site has been upgraded to 50/30 amp connection and new electrical boxes. New water lines and site connections at each site as well. Per the staff, in the upcoming weeks, they are going to re-pave the roads through the campground. They are also going to do additional leveling and pave all of the sites in the campground. (Staff said they were behind on getting the paving done because of all the recent rains.) About the park: There is no clear signage indicating where campers check-in. When you do find the office, it is hit or miss if someone is there. I did manage to flag down someone who turned out to be the campground host. He was great and got us checked in. He came by our site several times to check on us and demonstrated the new water connections. Bathrooms were clean and well kept. Grounds were clean and again well kept. We really liked camping here and will return when in the area again.
We traveled here with another camper. When we called and made reservations, we were given sites we requested. On arrival, our sites had been changed. The change might not have been so bad except they placed us right by the pool. This meant having to listen to every screaming brat in the park. The park was clean and well kept. Most sites were level. The shaded sites are all in the middle or outer edge of the park. The downside is they are located next to a busy highway. There are two lumber mills nearby.
We spent 5 days here the week prior to the Fourth of July. Check-in is slightly confusing as the office has no sign. The campground is nice and fairly easy to navigate. The roads and sites are all paved. Almost all of the sites have a slight to moderate grade so leveling is required. Many of the sites are small and will not accommodate larger RV's. Many of the campers had additional vehicles, boats, jet skies, etc., which sometimes made the campground feel crowded. This was especially true as the weekend approached. There are multiple bathhouses. They are older, but they are clean. As an adult, I would leave the bicycles home unless your are an avid biker. We tried ours and everywhere you go is up hill both ways. Wi-Fi is available at the check-in office and they will provide the password for you. Staff is very friendly and helpful. No sewer connection, but there are two dump stations. AT&T service was great with 3G service. No cable, but about 7 broadcast channels are available. There is no store. The closest grocery store is in the town of Ninety Six. We did visit the Ninety Six National Park. If you are looking for something to do, I would recommend going. The cost is free. We would stay here again
GREAT family oriented campground only minutes away from downtown Charleston. Shuttle available for transport to downtown area. Splash pad and water park are great for the kids. Lots of walking and riding trails. Well maintained and clean. Our visit fell after the area had several days of heavy rain leaving many of the sites with standing water and no real place to drain. Restrooms and bath houses were clean and stocked.
After reading many of the reviews posted, I was not sure how our stay might go. I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised. The grounds are clean and well kept. During our stay, the staff has been busy keeping everything clean, painting, planting flowers, etc. Some of the sites are more level than others, but none are so bad you cannot level your rig with the normal items you should be carrying. Each site is separated by a natural area of plants/trees. On some sites this does limit the patio area. WIFI is good, cable is OK with limited channels. Bathhouses are older but clean. The far end of the campground appears to have a fair number of permanent sites but most were not occupied. Those that were are mostly out of sight. At check-in, I was quoted a different rate than what I had booked at. I had my conformation with price and staff corrected, so no problem. The one real negative would be the foul mouth of one of the workers. On more than one occasion he could be heard dropping "F" bombs and really did not seem to care who heard it. Would I stay again? Yes.
This is a GREAT place to stay. We were there for a 4 day stay. All of the RV sites are paved and tent sites have a pad. Most all of the RV lakefront sites have a slight grade to them. The asphalt on many is broken up from tree roots but not enough to effect leveling of your RV. All of the sites are well shaded and offers a lot of privacy. If I were to have a negative comment, it would be the large amount of dead trees that have been cut and left on the ground. If you walk the trails, this is where you will see this the most. While I did not use the bathhouses, I did check them out. They are a little older but very clean.
We really liked the campground and will probably visit again. Some of the sites are really tight. Some of the sites along the CG edge are bordered by a road with no barrier. The road is well traveled, so there is a lot of noise. Wifi is available, but I could not log onto it. Bathrooms were clean; a little old, but clean. The beach lighthouse is within walking distance.
The weather was cooler so not a lot of campers. The site we were on was one of the better sites and was lakefront. Most sites are not level. The campground is divided into two sections. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
