Nice, but could use some updates

We camped here March 6-10. The park is in Columbia SC, and is a great choice for families who may want to do things outside the park. The park is super close to the Riverbanks Zoo. We stayed during a rainy time, which was fine for us since we didn’t need to entertain kids that trip. The campground is pretty small, but average for an SC state park. There are a few “improved” sites with full hookups, but they are all pretty close together, and don’t have much privacy. We stayed in the 2nd loop, where the campsites were more spaced out, and had more trees. Most of the sites are sand, and not very level. A few have gravel and are level. Most sites would be really difficult for a larger trailer or motor home do the the size of the sites. The campground restrooms are the cleanest I’ve ever seen! The campground hosts were always checking and cleaning the sites and restrooms (We did go during the week, in March). The amenities are few, but would be super fun in summer. There’s a splash pad, and canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards to rent. There’s a very small lake, but no swimming is allowed. There are a couple of “hiking” trails that are more like nice walks. There’s also a bike trail that we didn’t check out.
