Chester State Park, Chester, South Carolina

Date of Stay: February, 2006 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Chester is a great state park for a quiet weekend getaway. We go to Chester because it's fairly close to where we live, but far enough away from home that we feel like we've gone somewhere. My partner does college coursework via the internet and we can get a good signal at this campground with our Verizon phones. He gets lots of school work done and I get to build campfires, cook steaks and nap alot. It's a great place to go in the winter months because it's so very quiet. In fact, we've gone the past two New Years in a row. In the summer, there are lots of families with small kids. The washrooms are generally clean. The sites vary in sizes and ease of getting parked. The park is a bit short on amenities. There is a stocked lake provided you fish from the bank or from a non-powered boat. No swimming. Archery Range. Big softball field. Plenty of large picnic shelters. Reservations are even easier now that they use Reserve America. We camped at Chester State Park in a Travel Trailer.
