Great spot on Lake Keowee. Bring what you need as not much in the way of groceries nearby. Used to be about the last thing on the lake going north, but people retiring on the lake in mass numbers has in my opinion taken away from the lakes charm. If you have a boat the lake is really nice to explore. Head north.
Mike creek is one of several parks located on Lake Keowee. We were really disappointed that they had closed off the primitive campsites to build new cabins, but the new cabins are very nice! They were built October 2018 so they are brand new- They are pretty small but clean, air conditioned, and have a kitchen with stove and fridge as well as a screened in porch. They have 2 sizes- They house 4 or 8 people and are a little over $100/night. As of right now they don’t allow pets if you stay in the cabins so keep that in mind! The park ranger said they are planning to build some primitive sites again in the next year or so and we are looking forward to that. Overall, the cabins are clean even if they are small and the weekdays usually have openings. Mike creek has a lot of amenities such as a beach area, lots of parking, docks, and playgrounds. I highly recommend this park!
I absolutely loved these primitive campsites and was so bummed when they started to tear them down to make cabins. The campsites are very secluded and right on the lake. The bathrooms are within walking distance and there are also playgrounds, a sand volleyball court, and picnic tables. Make sure to book a few weeks ahead of time if you are camping on a holiday!
Camping on beautiful Lake Keowee in Six Mile SC. Large sites, most with lake views and many sites on the water. Sites have fire ring and picnic table, most sites are shaded. Boat ramp, picnic area, 2 playgrounds for the kids, clean facilities with showers.
We booked our trip in February so we got all the spots we wanted. We had 5 spots in a culdesac surrounded by the lake on all sides. The only regret we had was that we didn’t stay longer! Bath houses were conveniently located. Lots of hills so it was a little hard for the little kids to get around on bikes. We had kids with us age 14 and down to 5 yrs old. You need water shoes for swimming in the lake as it is rocky, but it has a perfect shallow end for little ones and very deep for kayaking and stuff like that. We even rented a pontoon boat nearby & they gave us a map and told us where to go. We did cliff diving and climbed waterfalls. It was the best vacation we’ve had! Next time we travel south we’ll be sure to stop here! It was Picturesque and beautiful, the kids had a great time! Bring tubes and floats to relax in the water with, It’s a great time!!
This is our second year to camp here and the new management shows! Campsites are cleaner, new rustic tent sites are being developed and gone are the old grandfathered in long term RVs taking up primo sites season long!
