Sites have great size

This is a beautiful place, with great sites, that have a good space between each other, this way you can have some privacy!

Our Favorite Campground for the View! Boaters Paradise!

Stunning Views. No Bad Spots. A little crowded, but worth the views and crystal clear water. Watet and Electric at sites. Heated Bathrooms with showers. Super clean campground. We went in Oct, 2020. I would imagine this place would be super crowded in summer. When we went in fall it was comfortable and not too many people. But the sites are close to one another. #49 is super private and like a penthouse suite with 360 views of the water. We stayed at #46, our 3rd favorite site. #43 hit our number 2 favorite as it is a bit away from everyone with view of water in front and behind you! We will be back. From AtlasJeeper!

Beautiful waterfront and tent camping sites.

Really no bad spots here! So many amazing spaces.

Stunning Views! Best sites #43 #49, #46.

We stayed in Oct, 2020, at site #46 which was awesome views. Also loved sites #43 and #49 (Best sites in my opinion). Beautiful Place! Clean. Awesome views. The water is crystal clear. Lots of boats. October had great cool weather and beautiful that the leaves are changing to falls colors. I have seen pictures of this place being very crowded in summer. So, I prefer fall :) Seems great for kids and pets. Not a lot of space or privacy between campsites, but the views are worth the less private sites. Water and electric at each site. Showers in bathrooms too. We will be back!

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.

Overall, the best state park in SC

We travel and camp at many places across South Carolina but this was our first visit to Calhoun Falls State Park. What a gem! Beautiful scenery, large, spacious lakeside campsites. We enjoyed privacy, lake access from our campsite, and spectacular sunset views over the lake. Rangers and staff at park store are friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to go back.

Lovely visit!

We stayed at Lake Hartwell State park in stie 98 which was a lovely lakeside site.  The sites on either side (96, 99) all shared a path to a small beach with lake access.  Most other sites in the Wiggins Loop did not seem to have lake access- exceptions being tent sites and the cabins.  There was some privacy and the sites were decently spread out, but since they were staggered a bit you could definitely see into other sites.

Nice camp store with helpful staff and firewood for sale.

Place was packed over the weekend but cleared out Sunday.

We loved this place

Nice campground, nice facilities, nice trails.

Quiet area, 0 reception

The area very serene, quiet and pretty. Nice hiking area and swimming area. If you need to get ahold of someone though you'll have to drive 10 to 15 minutes into town.

Quiet, smaller campground with hot showers!

Keowee Toxaway State Park Campground was not where we were headed - but due to overwhelming volume elsewhere - this is where we ended up!  

This campground fills quickly, but on a Sunday afternoon, was the perfect timing to enjoy the beauty! 

As you pull into the campground, the road splits - you follow the road to the right (one way) and drive through the RV sites.  They are nice - your regular RV sites with hook ups.  As you continue around the loop, you enter a new loop, the tent sites - and this was where we found solitude and nice level sites!  There were many trees which made for good hammock hanging for our daughter and lots of dead kindling to start our fire!  

The bathhouse was nice - and had HOT showers - which is always a plus.  The bathhouse was not directly in our loop, but close enough it wasn't a big deal just to have one bathhouse for the campground.  We also liked that they recycled. (not everyone does!) 

I would not recommend this site on the weekends, due to the close nature of each campsite.  As the pictures show - lots of the uninhabited sites were VERY close together, so if your neighbor was disruptive, you could be disappointed.  Overall, really nice!
