It is a very small campground. Narrow winding dirt road to small campsites. Bathhouse in the center. Check out the site pictures on their website, they are accurate. We only have a 17 foot camper and it still felt small. We stayed on site 16 which was nice and quiet. Site 18 would have been easier to back in to with the same amount of privacy. We got there early and were able to go right to our site. There were only 4 other campers there and the hosts. The bathhouse was older and could have been cleaner but it was okay. Most importantly it was warm. Our first night it got down to 27 and the water at the hose bib froze but once the sun came up it was fine. Less than 30 minutes to downtown Aiken. We loved the town and it was very pet friendly. Hopelands Gardens was beautiful, free and pet friendly. Had some good beer at Aiken Brewing Company and enjoyed all the shops downtown. We did go into Augusta and that was another 30 minutes from downtown Aiken. We will definitely go back in the warmer months to see some steeplechase horse racing and training, canoe and kayak the Edisto River and go hiking in Hitchcock Woods. There are quite a few museums we did not get to that would be nice to visit as well. I would definitely go back.
This park has a great group camp sites. We have taken are cub scouts and Boy Scout troop here many times. The RV camp ground has too side a larger side which is newer and an older side. The older of the RV camp site is a little Tight but can 1 get a 40ft trailer in with no problem. The new side has Plenty of room for large RV. Bath houses are clean and well Maintain. Staff is great to work with. Bring your fishing rod Plenty of fishing. There is also a great swimming area and playgrounds.
I have been here two times. First time with scout troop and then RV camping. The group camping area is Huge and has its own picnic shelters and bath rooms . The Rv sites were clean and well Maintain. The park is beautiful and very large. You feel like you are in A secluded area not like some parks right up on top of each other. Staff is Amazing and very helpful. I definitely will be back.
Mistletoe State Park is just outside of Augusta, GA. It’s on Lake Strom Thurmond, which is good for fishing and boating. The campground was nice, with level sites, and clean showers and bathrooms. When we were there the lake was very low, so the water activity was limited. It is close enough to Augusta for dining and shopping if you need that.
Bussey Point is primarily for equestrians. The campsites have pre-installed horse hitches and plenty of room to move a horse trailer. The sites have a picnic table and a fire pit. The campground has a well for water and an open pit latrine. There's no power which is perfect for camping off grid away from all the trailers.
The campsites are right on the water and the view is beautiful. Over the weekend I was the only one here and the only person I spoke to was the volunteer Camp Ranger from the US Army Corps of Engineers.
There is a 12-mile horse trail that goes out on the peninsula and some pack-in or canoe-in campsites out on the peninsula.
Fee per night is on an honor system at $10. I have no complaints about this campsite only about the other campers that leave their trash behind.
I recommend this campground if you're looking to get away from all the people especially the crowds at the more popular campsites at the state parks, and if you're fine with more primitive camping that doesn't involve daily showers.
I love this campground!! A lot of the campgrounds I have been to can't accommodate my large tent and still leave space. This one can. The sites are large and flat. They are spaced enough apart for privacy and have tons of wooded area for hammocks and such. Most are lake front to beautiful Lake Russell. Campsite 21 had easy lakefront access for swimming or kayaks or even putting our paddleboat in. The campground also consists of a camp store, a basketball court, and a tennis court. A local company we deliver golf carts and water sports equipment right to your site for very reasonable prices. All the rv/tent sites are equipped with clean water and power. From sites 19-24 you can see both the sunrise and the sunset over the lake.
We are Columbia County residents who have been camping for years, but this is the first time at Wildwood, which is a Columbia County Park. We stayed on site 15 across from the boat ramps. Nice swim area, one bath house, good price. Campsites on this loop have dirt road, sites are fairly level. Not quite as big and level as local USACOE campgrounds. Park has great boating access. Quiet cove area. Water, power (50&30 amp). Access road to campsites is about a mile long. Walking to other areas of the campground was a hike of several miles. Free WiFi available. Enjoyed our stay!
90+ sites with water, 50/30 amp electric, a dozen or so primitive sites. Most have access to water and if the lake level is good, there is usually some beach area at most sites where you can swim, tie off a boat. We love it here and have been coming for Memorial Day and Labor Day for 25 years. Reservations are easy through Reserveusa.gov. Sites are all hard compact dirt/gravel but most are very level. Gate is locked each evening at 10:00 with a combination lock code provided to you for access. Very safe and secure. Just a couple of miles from Clark Hill Dam which has a nice visitor’s center. About 20 minutes north of Augusta suburbs of Martinez and Evans.
Spots are a little tight but never had a problem with anything. Looking forward to April. Good fishing and boating.
All sites but three were pull through with three primitive sites. Bathhouse was clean. Trails were pleasant and the bridge and falls were awesome. Main campground closes for 3 months but the equestion side stays open. make sure you are coming into park for the correct campground since campers cant go across bridge.
My campsite was perfect! I loved that the sites are nicely spaced so you are not right on top of each other! Bathrooms were close and very clean.
Welcome center sells wood and general supplies.
Peaceful and amazing place to cast a line and chill while the sun sets!!!
Well maintained and manicured. Park rules are strictly enforced. Campsites on the water. Beautiful, clean lake for kayaking and all water craft sports. Great roads for biking. Plenty of hiking trails. Bath houses are clean. Laundry facility in the park. Beach, pavillions for large picnics, playgrounds, cottages, convenience store inside the office, friendly camp hosts, and a dump station in the park. Going from fcfs on August 2nd to online site specific reservation which will make it difficult to reserve sites for full weeks b/c many camp only two nights.
This state park has boats to rent,fishing, swimming equestrian camping,cabins ect..They have this large primitive area that we used..It was a bit of a hike to the bathrooms..but everything else was fantastic We loved the historical museum there too
reserved a site on spur of the moment after i found one on the water and 50amp. once arrived at the park determined all the sites, but 3 were good and on the water. the trails were good but the white trail needed some maintance. did a tour of the museum and grist mill which was very intresting. park staff were super friendly. lakews alot bigger than i expected but there are rulles about what motors are allowed. over all super nice and very quite park. support our state parks to help keep them maintaines and open.
I've camped here a few times and frequent the trails. Great for car camping, trailers, RVs, and back woods camping.
Main camp areas have bathrooms, showers and even laundry. Individual sites have power and water. There's a small beach area and playground for kids too. Tree cover is great in the summer.
Camp sites are close, but not in top of each other (probably 20 yds at closest).
The staff is super friendly and provide a lot of informative and interpretive resources.
The state park encompasses miles of shoreline, with incredible views from most of the campsites. They have electric hookups at each site, fire pit, and a grill. There a few trails that are easy around the park. we stayed here two nights. We swam out to an island and hung out there for the day. There’s a beach down near the ranger station you can enjoy as well.
I gave it five stars because the canoe rental was closed.
Upon enterIng the park there is the check in/ Convenience store wIth helpful frIendly staff. The store has park related gIfts, toys, snacks, drInks and campIng related supplies.There are plenty of quiet lake front camping spots available with bath and shower houses nearby. The mostly level roads and trails are great for bicycling. A playground for the kiddos is also here and fun per the kids.
This campground is close to home. The rangers and patrons have maintained this park well. The lake views are incredible! The primitive sites are a short hike in and so serene. The bathrooms are clean and have washer/dryer accessibility.
If your looking for a place to completely relax this is the place. It sits on the Saluda River, great fishing. We stayed here for 7 nights.
The bath house is in need of an update. PHU only. They resort charges $5 for use of the pool.
Prior to walking the Rock Dam Trail, I was interested in the conditions of the backcountry campsites. So a few hours and pictures later, I can now share this here. The trail could use a little more maintenance around the split rock area, and mosquitoes were plentiful between the "His & Her Oaks" and Backcountry Campsite #1. Didnt notice anything that would keep from this park getting 5 stars.
Lakefront sites are well worth the extra cost. Campsites are a bit tight, but the lakefront sites have great views. Drivig through can be tricky due to the multitude of cars, trucks, boat trailers parked everywhere. Drive-in movie nearby is really fun.
Clark’s Hill is a Great Lake! HK is an OK park. It does have a nIce golf course and skeet shooting, kayak rentals, cabins, a restaurant and a pool. The campsites are nice enough. but. The entire park sits on a mound of ants. ants everywhere. ants of all varieties. And most of the lake access is solid Georgia red clay mud…
