Beautiful campground

We stayed here this past weekend and absolutely loved it. Our site was #40 and it was right on the lake. There is a skunk that comes up to your site at night but he doesnt bother anyone as long as you dont scare it. Very beautiful and peaceful campground. Friendly staff. Definitely going to return again.

Amazing

Friendly staff, nice view, little small places for big rigs, but I would recommend

Stunning lakefront campsites with gorgeous mountain views!

Lake Jocassee is knows as the Caribbean of SC for good reason!  This lake is pristine - the blue-green, transparent water is gorgeous and nice and warm in September.

We are tent campers, so we skipped through the RV section and parked in the tent parking lot to go explore the sites.  We were pleased with the first 4 sites that presented themselves to us as we walked - but as we continued exploring - we realized WOW, these sites are phenomenal!!  

So a couple things to know:  You will be walking to your campsite.  If you are not thrilled with this idea, pick another park.  It is a walk - but well worth it!  The first few sites are larger than the rest - almost double sites, with more space between you and your neighbors and lots of trees for some privacy.  The lakefront sites are pretty snuggled together - but they are LAKEFRONT!  You can walk from your site - into the lake, by climbing down the rocks.  As you lay in your hammock or tent, you can hear the water lapping on the shore - it is stunning!  If you plan to arrive during daylight and get set up - you'll be fine.  The steps are marked with yellow paint - but seeing in the dark can be challenging!  

This park is very busy - and the line to get into the park can be at a standstill for hours.  We came on Sunday afternoon - and the campsites were all booked!  We were very disappointed - but the helpful ladies at the visitor center suggested another campground nearby.  The visitor center also has a very clean bathroom and everything you could have possibly forgotten at home!!  We will surely be back to this campground!

Shaded spots, renovations being done now!

We were heading to Table Rock this past weekend to camp.  As you pull in the gate, the entrance to the campground is just ahead on the left.  We pulled up to the camp store and spoke to the woman inside.  She was very friendly, gave us our sitemap and some general information about hours and we were on our way!  

We pulled through the campsite - the first 8 or so sites on the right are VERY close together, flat and very average.  As you pull into the loops though, the campsites spread out and are more private.  A couple recommended sites would be # 52, as it was a bit larger than the other sites - and a bit more private - with a longer site.  Another recommendation is site 13 - due to the large nature - a double site that backs up to the creek with a dry, shaded tent pad.   

There are clean bathrooms, not great cell reception - but no worries!  There is renovation happening here and sites are currently being updated and this campground will be even more beautiful when they are complete!

Serious seclusion

Arrived here for a 5-night, tented stay from Sesqui State Park 2.5 hours away. Check in was easy, and the staff accommodated a second-chance selection given that Spot 60 was a bit too rocky for the tent. The alternatives #5 and #6 were close to the entrance and therefore exposed to the road, and #49 was next to the restrooms, but similar to #60, so stayed with #60. The spot is level be but jaggedly rocky, so it became necessary to remove stones and rocks as much as possible to prevent the damaging of the tent's floor. The picnic table's sandy pad was level and had the fire pit placed in an unfortunate upwind location, so sitting at the picnic table and having a smoky fire ended up being mutually exclusive. The sights and views of lake and mountain sides are serene and beautiful. No raccoons. Giant grasshoppers though. Clean bathrooms. Narrow, steep roads around the first campground loop, beware. Very nice visitor center. No WiFi, and terrible to Nil reception at the campground, from both TMobile and Verizon. The check-in office building's WiFi is unreliable. Had to drive to Easley to work remotely at the Ingles Starbucks!

Our #1 Campsite of All Time!

Amazing Water Views. Really not a bad spot in this campsite. We stayed at site #26 and #33. The pictures here are of site #26. Awesome views. Water and Electric on each site. Super clean. Helpful staff. We will be back!

Beautiful Lake Views

 We stayed here for 2 nights just this past weekend. It was easy to get to and very well maintained. Our site(site 60) was right on the lake and absolutely beautiful. The layout of the loop we were on was very well thought out and plenty of space between sites so you don't feel like you were right on top of your neighbors. The way the sites were oriented, you had a fantastic view of the lake. 

One thing to really consider is proximity to Clemson. When we booked the site, it was one of only a handful available however while walking our dogs, we noticed over half of the sites were unoccupied. With the cancellation of college football, this is not surprising. Fall will be a busy time so if quiet is what you are after, I would be mindful of the Clemson home schedule. 

The bath houses were very clean, however there is no soap for washing your hands so keep that in mind if you use the facilities. The dump station was also nice and easy to use. Three large dumpsters for taking trash when you empty your tanks. 

Not all sites have a separate grill and fire pit which was the only downside. Ours did not, but the fire pit did have a grate you could put over a fire and cook.

Spacious shaded open loops

There are a couple nice swimming beaches. Some playgrounds for the kids. All the sites were good spots. Level, lots of room. Picnic tables, fire pits, lateen hangars at each site. Lots of room for walking. Beautiful and peaceful trees on the lake.

It seemed small and crowded

Pulled in on a rainy day into the wrong site. On checking in the next day, found we had to move. None of the available sites were suitable even for my small 17ft camper. After a walk around the bumpy narrow road in the campground loop, we just decided to leave.

Not big rig friendly

Lots of opportunities for kayaking, hiking. Not an easy place for first timers to get into. No swim access to the lake. Small campground loop. Forested and moderately strenuous hiking trails.
