Great camping in Sumter

Stayed at site # 36, this is the best one. There are 2 loops, first loop for the RVs and the second loop for tent and small pop ups. Tables, fire ring, water at each site. There is a bath house, very clean.

The hiking trails are very well marked, get map at ranger station.


This park is stunning and perfect for pups to come along!

great hiking

nice trails, our site was really tight but was reserved sight unseen. enjoyed the paddle boats.

Not too crowded

Nice quiet spot not far from Columbia. Love the elevation change which is rare in Midlands of SC.

Great mountain biking

The biking is awesome, however I was not a giant fan of the campsite itself.

Luxury or backwoods & in between

The pond is good for all ages, but don't expect to be dragging a big boat here. You can rent a canoe or a row boat or bring your own. There is some sediment in the pond, but it is still enjoyable.

You can go all out camping with no extras or enjoy nature in a luxurious cabin. The big one had two bedroom which could sleep two in one & 3 or 4 in the other. Plus, there is an alcove with bunk beds & chairs & a couch to make a total of 11 or 12 easily. It is fully stocked included linens & towels. Cook in or out. There is even a fireplace & screened in porch

And I haven't even touched on the trails. So much to do or relax & enjoy the peace.

beautiful views

Great place to camp just not in the Summer as there is no breeze. Also watch out for the hidden catus. There are some beautiful trails and the Jr Ranger frog catching contest was awesome. Small waterfall from the lake down a small hill where a mill use to be and even Geocaching. Very nice bathrooms and showers.

Nice hiking, close quarters

We camped here for Mother's Day weekend. Our camper is 29 ft, with no slide outs and just an awning. There was no way to extend our awning, because the trees were too close. A slide out wouldn't have been able to open out. I think it was just our site. But the other sites were pretty narrow, as well. Otherwise, the campground was nice. Shaded, a large field for the children to run and play with their new-found friends, and a nice recreational building available for campers to use, complete with games, books, tables, and electricity. The hiking trails that we went on were good, but it was too warm to do a lot of hiking. Instead, we visited the park office for ice cream!

Beautiful Park

Spent the day hiking the trails around the pond area. Beautiful "waterfall" area. Great place for an leisurely canoe /kayak trip. Lots of good bike trails

Great place to stay for mountain biking and hiking.

I prefer to stay at Poinsett State Park in the fall, winter, or spring as it is located in the sandhills and it can be pretty hot and buggy in the summer. The WPA era cabins are great. They have all the amenities you need for a little getaway, including a fireplace.

This is a good place to stay to mountain bike, there are two trails in Poinsett and Manchester State Forest is nearby.
