Great stop for a night

This campground was not far off the highway and made for a good overnight stop. The staff was incredibly friendly and the pull through site we were in was easy to get into. It wasn't very crowded the night we were there. They have a nice dog park. I would stay here again if in the area.

Alston Campground

This place is nice and quiet. Except for being snuggled up to a train track. Twice in the night the train came through. But we laughed, it was like being a kid where you could hear the train off in the distance and would ride your bike to go watch it pass. Nice experience, beautiful trailhead, lots…

Great views!!!

Dreher Island did not disappoint. Our site was fairly level once we got passed the tree roots under the asphalt. Power was stable and water had fairly good pressure. Our site had fantastic views of the sunset and sunrise. Mid day though the wind would kick up. Very interesting. The showers had hot…

Jason, at entry, was very nice and helpful. Was my first camping trip, so I had several questions. Enjoyed it very much. So beautiful.

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.

Beautiful lake view

Very nice place the only downside is there is no Wi-Fi but it’s a State Park so that happens sometimes great price And paved spot.

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.

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…
