Cool campground surrounded by water. I give it 4 stars mainly because the bathrooms were in disrepair and the hiking trail was poorly marked.
Baker Creek State Park is situated in an area along the Savannah River with a lot of other S.C. and GA parks. It may be the smallest of all the surrounding parks which also means it is probably the quietest. There are no swimming pools, golf courses, or tennis courts which is perfect for me. I am looking for relaxation, not a bit of noise, people, and canned activity.
Water access is very easy if you want to boat or kayak. There are are also nearby trails to go hiking. The main hiking trail onsite has not been kept up at all - so it is basically impassable.
That is why the one star deduction from this camp. The rangers and the state just don’t keep it maintained like they should. The camp hosts are great and so their jobs well, but seems the full time rangers want to do as little as they can get away with. And lack of funding from the state doesn’t help that - and that is a problem with all the S.C. state parks, not just this one.
But l, regardless of this, the campground is peaceful and functional, the views are wonderful, and the nature plentiful. Enjoy!
