A lot of the sites are on the waters edge and offers beautiful views. The red clay was horrible though, especially with a white dog and after it rained. We had site 145, beautiful views but difficult to maneuver into the site and access the water, but we made it work. We would return though. Site 144 and 143 had gorgeous views of the sunset…I’ve heard 108 and 77 are prime spots. Be aware of booking a site and how you’re awning will face! Bathhouse is about 1/2 mile away, so too far to walk when you have to go. Not many bathhouses either so there was a line for the shower (only 2 shower stalls and 3 toilets for at least 75 campsites with the tent sites included). Only 2 single access dump stations for the entire park, so there was a line of 8-10 campers at both on a Sunday morning!
We travel and camp at many places across South Carolina but this was our first visit to Calhoun Falls State Park. What a gem! Beautiful scenery, large, spacious lakeside campsites. We enjoyed privacy, lake access from our campsite, and spectacular sunset views over the lake. Rangers and staff at park store are friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to go back.
Spent Fri-Sun (Aug 28-30) in site #55 on campground #1 loop. We were on the west side of the loop and the last site directly on the water. It is a back-in site and was wooded with a nice view. We loved this spot, so much quieter than the rest of the loop. This lake is all about boating so most of the sites are already packed in, then throw in most sites have a camper plus a boat on them and it can seem crowded. From our site we could get in the water and use our SUP boards and swim around. This spot is right between the bath house and dumpsters - about 2 min walk. We would definately go back here and stay in the same area we were in. There is a little beach and dock closer to the visitor center that was a 3/4 mile hike/walk each way (but we just swam at out site).
Would recommend Site #54, pull-through that will have you facing the lake and quiet.
Great place for kids and dogs. Most camp spots have a great distance between them for dogs to have space. Also a great place for boaters. We pull out boat right up to the camp spot. We have a truck camper a 3500 ram and our boat trailer on the site with room for two more cars if needed. The bathrooms were nice and clean as well.
We camped here just as the COVID shutdowns were beginning back March. There were only a few campers. We were right on the water. Large clean sites. Great campground. It was a cool early spring evening. We had a nice campfire and enjoyed a nice time.
