Amazing

Amazing camp sites. Beautiful trails and waterfall.

Perfection!

Tent camping can get cramped but you won't feel that way here! The set up here is great, pads are level and big, picnic tables aren't chained down so you can move them where you need them. The showers/bathrooms are brand new and CLEAN! You are going to feel spoiled because you are. Trails lead right off the camp grounds making it easy to get up and make the most out of every day you get to spend here. The only thing lacking is a camp host but rangers patrol at night and are happy to drop you some wood if you flag them down.

quite and quaint

The Family campground has sites right along the river. Nice bathrooms. Trails right off of the camp ground.

Absolutly Gorgeous and Full Adventures

This place has it all from primitive camping to beautiful waterfalls. There maybe a couple steps along the way but who doesnt love a good hike. When you make it to the top… you feel like you are ontop of the world.

great camping area

we camped at the family camping area, it was great, we had site 6 and it was on the river and the kids loved it! cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen!!

Great place close to home

This state park is relatively close for us in Charlotte and we have camped here on a few occasions. We want to visit more and always plan on it. The campground is clean and the spots are level and decently spaced. Easy access to the creek and hiking trails from the campground. What I like most about this park is they do close the gates at night (I can’t remember exactly what time) but it definitely cuts down on random traffic.

Great facilities

New bathrooms. roomy sites. Gets booked quickly

Our Favorite

South Mountains is a great campground. Bath facilities are new and kept clean. Very quiet with NO cell service which is a big draw for us. Far from a town, so don't forget anything. Rangers are helpful and will bring firewood (charge for the wood). Mostly drive in sites with only 2 (that I can think of) RV sites in the family campground. Not sure about the equine campground.

Girls Trip!

Even though we only stayed one night, we had a blast! Restrooms were very clean and well maintained. The tent pad was large enough to setup our 8 man tent and 2 man tent, and lewve us plenty of room for our kitchen setup and room around the fire pit.
