Pros: easy access from state hwy. Restrooms were very clean. This park has made pull through sites for big rigs. The lake and fishing area are great. Very quite and no artificial lights, heat place to star gaze. Love the little circles the water/electricity sites are located. Large site next side acceptable distance away. Every site has a covered shelter.
Cons: some of the sites need added gravel or black top.
I will be coming back and staying, great state park.
There’s a ton of great camp sites at Lake Murray. A lot to do as well- fish, golf, horseback riding, ATV trails, boating, nice pool with a splash area (only lodge and cabin guest have access), putt putt, activities on the lake (water trampoline, slide, etc), hiking. It’s a huge park so even when it’s crowded it doesn’t feel too crowded. There’s a lot of shaded sites and sites on the water. Highly recommend. We stayed in site 4 in the ATV campground.
The campsites here are pretty primitive. Seems like you can set up just about anywhere. There are two non flushing restroom. Plenty of poles for tying horses and there is water trofts for them but the water looked pretty disgusting. May want to think about bringing several gallons of water. Not a lot of area to get privacy from other campers as the area is pretty open. There are trails that I didn’t take to know if there were other areas that you could potentially set up at least a hammock camp at. $10 per car fee to be paid at a self serve box.
The site we stayed at was at least 300 feet from the nearest spot but no one occupied that spot either time we stayed here so we were pretty much by ourselves. This place is very minimalistic so if that’s what you’re looking for this is a good place to come. The spots here are first come first serve no reservation needed. The was a nice fire pit made and enough trees at at least 4 of the 7 sites to be able to hang hammocks if you want and are fairly shady which is so nice. Ground is kind of hard to drive a stake into. No water or restrooms that we saw but I know wherever the group site is there is supposedly a restroom. There were a few trails but it was too hot for me to drag myself to them. This is our second time camping here in a week, and I’m sure we will be back again when the weather is cooler.
