Great views

Clean well kept campground. Site 20 very level. Bathhouse clean. Great views of lake. Camp host was blowing leaves off sites as people were leaving. Would stay here again.

Thanksgiving Camping!

Nice, clean campground! Friendly staff. Visited nearby revolutionary war site with hiking trails and plan to take a day trip to Columbia Zoo for Christmas lights. Second stay at this campground this year and we have enjoyed ourselves both times.

Affordable SC camping

Had a quick one nighter here in fall 2021. Sites are large and spread out. No facilities except for very clean pit toilets. 5 mi off I26 makes it easily accessible.

Tranquility and a new family

We came here as work campers and decided to become owners.   It is quiet here, the lake is beautiful and the people are friendly.  There are rules, and the american flag and patriots are welcome here, but nothing temporary is allowed due to the wind off of the lake.   There is an amazing group of…

Not for patriots!

Visually beautiful. That's where it stops.

Not alot of options for renters. No hiking nearby. Can't use dock to fish from. WIFI very sporadic. And, American Flag not allowed unless you own a lot or if the owners there approve. We were given permission to fly our flag up  on top of our RV by the…

Just what I was looking for!

I was the only one on the island, and it was great.  It was a nice peaceful kayak trip out to the island where they had a fire pit and picnic table waiting.

Absolutely the worst treatment ever!

After being there 10 months, new management is running folks out! They kicked me out by making bogus accusations. Several other long term campers have thrown in the towel, packing up and leaving the prison camp environment with Heil April in charge.

Remote Campground in the National Forest

This is a remote campground in the national forest, and it is close to equestrian camping as well. With that said, there will be horseflies. However, it is a quiet campground. A big disadvantage, as far as I am concerned, is that it does not have water access. With that said, plan to dry camp and…

Water is out. No running water

The water is out so there isn’t water other than that it’s a great campsite. I like quiet spots and this is good for that.
