Just left Aiken State Park in SC. We will not be returning because it didn’t meet our requirements, but it is not a bad park if it’s what you’re looking for, so here’s the pros and cons:
Pros - super affordable, nice location, very peaceful/quiet, nature trails, kayak rentals available, clean, nice staff
Cons - sand/uneven pads, very tight to drive through and get parked, the dump station is inconvenient to get out of when leaving the campground, absolutely no cell service at campsite (we have Verizon, att, and tmobile)
One other big negative for us, which I hope no one else has to encounter is there was a seemingly, stray dog running around. Super sweet and timid around people, but we have our dog with us (boxer) and the stray attacked our dog. Just warning if you’re there or going soon.
This is an ok campground. Small (25 sites) and quiet. Kudos to the park staff for calling the day before to see if we needed firewood, and give us the gate code in case we were going to be late.
As I said before, it is quiet (except for our neighbors ac kicking on and off all day and night). Site 23 is spacious, and although it backs to the road, there is minimal traffic on it.
The bath house is in the middle of the loop and easily accessible. It is a little outdated, but was always clean. The showers are newer than the rest of the bathroom.
There is a canoe/kayak launch close enough to walk to and we saw many people with kayaks and canoes.
We are tent campers and slept with no rain fly, looking at the stars and listening to coyotes howl at night.
A good park overall and a quiet peaceful weekend.
Had to hike in about .5 miles to a HUGE primitive camping area right near the edisto river. Really wonderful spot since we had 4 people in our group. Perfect wilderness getaway that wasn't too far ( less than 15/20 mins) from civilization.
Easy stop over for a night or two. Right off of I95. Next to a major road, so there is car/truck noise during the day. None of the sites are private, so I wouldn’t call this a “destination” campground. Great if you want to fish and kayak the Edisto River!
The bathrooms are very clean and air conditioned. Sites are all very clean with power, water, picnic table, and fire ring. There are nicely spaced out trees, so if you have a hammock, bring it. Didn’t have mosquito issues, but beware there are a lot of ants and they bite!!
Best sites are 6, 8, and 9. We camped in site 10.
We stayed here overnight on our trip home from Florida. Checked in at dark and was guided to our site by staff. Mostly level sites with easy access. Beautiful Park with nice sites. Very helpful staff. Will save this Campground in our directory for future reference when traveling and needing a stop over.
Stayed at #52 and it was very private, level, and clean!
The gravel kept the camper clean; the deck with bench, table and chairs, gas fire pit was super nice; the grill with picnic table were awesome. The plot abuts the grassy area but wasn’t too buggy.
We went on a walk with our girls around the camp site, to the doggy area (small bjt super cute with some see saws, etc.), around the lake, and read the historical signs. We checked out the giant chess board, playground, horse shoes, and corn hole.
COVID restrictions were really well explained. Masks suggested, pool sign up with rules posted. We signed up for 6:30 and the team thoroughly cleaned between us and the precious crew.
The food and store was super and reasonable.
Next time I will def check out the nightly wine or beer tasting.
Can’t say enough good things - will def be back!!
