Lake Wateree State Recreation Area, Winnsboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our forth stay here. The park was crowded over the weekend. I don't think there were any sites that were not occupied. Even with the park being full, it was quiet. Cell service in our area of our site was non existent, but was good near park office. The bath house was clean and well stocked each time I visited. The roads are paved and easy to get around except in two locations where caution is needed. Sites are paved, mostly level and spacious. Lake Wateree is one of the few larger parks that have not been upgraded to 50 amp service. The only real complaint I have is with the dump station. There is only one. At the end of a busy weekend, the line was long with over an hour wait. Overall, we like coming here will probably return. We camped at Lake Wateree State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Stonebridge Campground & RV Park, Maggie Valley, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our third stay at Stonebridge. The park is a older park and the design represents such. A new owner purchased the park a couple years ago and the park has been slowly making improvements. The park does have a large number of seasonal campers. Some have been around long enough to become "junky". We were told by staff, by next year, most of the seasonal sites would all be moved to one section of the campground. Most sites are pull thru. Some of the sites are really tight, especially those along the creek. Many of the sites have a concrete patio. The site itself is chunk gravel. Some sites are 30 amp and some are 50 amp. AT&T cell service was good as well as LTE. The park wifi worked well, a little slow at times, but service covered the whole park. Bath houses are old but clean. Some sites are well shaded and others are not. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate. Cable thru Directv worked well. On weekends, the campground has entertainment come in including several bands. We camped at Stonebridge Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Oconee State Park, Mountain Rest, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at this state park. The park is an older, CCC era park and has that older charm about it. While many of the buildings and bathhouses are older, they were always clean when I visited them. Many of the sites are tight and short, but workable. WiFi is available in select areas, AT&T cell service is non-existent. Rangers frequently patrolled the park and would pick-up trash at each site. Water and 30 amp service was good. My site was a little difficult to back into because of some trees. A little caution and a good spotter and it worked. The park offers numerous activities including: dancing on Fridays (summertime), miniature golf, swimming, (the lake was being re-filled following emergency repairs) several hiking trails. The park also serves as the terminus for the Foothills Trail, a 77 mile hiking trail. We camped at Oconee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of our favorite parks and we stay here often, usually as part of a large group. The area and the park have a lot to offer. As is prone to happen, it often rains with passing afternoon storms. When it does rain, it often leaves many of the sites underwater. Many sites do not drain and remain under water for several days, making the site unusable and access to your camper difficult. I, and others, have frequently complained to staff, but year after year nothing is ever done in an attempt to rectify the problem. That said, we still love the park and enjoy our stays here. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Devil's Fork State Park, Salem, South Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time visiting this park. Built in 1990, it is one of the newest of the state parks, which to me, makes no sense why they did not add sewer connections. Overall, a very nice park and campground. All of the staff we met were very friendly and knowledgeable. The park was clean and well kept.

Park Rangers make frequent rides thru the campground. The bathhouses were mostly clean - the floors stayed wet and dirty because of rain. One bathhouse does have a laundry, which we used and everything worked as it should. We did experience a lot of heavy rain during our stay which caused our site to wash mud and water to our door.

The sites are well spaced, electric good, great water pressure. OTA TV was hit or miss. AT&T cell service and LTE was good. The park has nice paved trails that lead to the tent sites, bathhouses and lake area.

I do not believe they had/have a camp host which may account for why our fire pit looks as if it has been some time since last cleaned.

I do want to give another big thank you to the gentleman at Burrell's (?) Automotive, a few miles from the campground. We had a mechanical problem with our vehicle and he stopped what he was doing to help and get us going again.

NOTE: On weekends this park and lake both become VERY crowded! We camped at Devil's Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stonebridge Campground & RV Park, Maggie Valley, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second time staying here. We like staying here mostly because of it's proximity to the things we like. Since our stay last year at this time, the park has been undergoing some changes. Some of the sites have been upgraded with new gravel and concrete patios. I do think they could have spent a little more time leveling the gravel as every RV using these sites had to use some sort of leveling device.

The park does have a lot of permanent sites and some are "junky" in appearance. The creek side sites are tight, as in awning touching your neighbor tight. They do have a lot of odd/even sites that place you door to door with your neighbor, but I think they try not to put someone that close to you. The bathhouse was old, but clean and well stocked. The electric, water, cable and sewer all worked as they were supposed to. Cell and LTE was good. The campground does have wifi, but I could not get it to work. Overall, it is a good place to stay, the staff and people in the campground that we met were all very nice. We camped at Stonebridge Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We always come to James Island in June as a large group of family and friends. This is also one of our favorite parks. We always enjoy walking and bike riding the many miles of trails the park has to offer. The park is always clean, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Most of the sites are level, easy to access and most are well shaded. Some of the sites hold water if it rains. Some of the sites are in need of having gravel added. The main roads in the campground are paved and the sites are packed gravel. Service is 50 amp, water pressure is good, tv gets about 12 OTA channels. AT&T cell service is good as is LTE. We did use the laundry facilities. The washers did ok but several of the dryers did not get hot enough to dry. Bath house was clean each time I visited. They could use a No Smoking sign in them as the urinals always had cigarette butts in them. We did visit McLeod Plantation during our stay. I did inquire if there was a discount for those staying at the campground, but there is not. (Both McLeod and the campground are owned by Charleston county) Bicycles are the best mode of transportation. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hunting Island State Park, Beaufort, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Let me begin by stating, if you come prepared, your stay will be a great one. Yes, there are plenty of mosquitoes and No-See-Um's for everyone. We used a Thermacell and a large fan while sitting outside and had no problem. We did not have to use spray on insect repellent. There were a few things that I did not like about the campground; very few of the sites I saw were level but with a few boards it should not be a problem. Many of the sites had standing, stagnate, water either on the site or nearby, a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Our site, and those around us, had mud on the site. A little gravel on almost all of the sites would go a long way toward improvements. The roads are paved but can be very narrow in places. If you take your time you should have no problem. Some sites are a little tight to back into because of a few trees. We did have one issue with a large dog that was left outside all the time and barked non-stop. After several complaints, the rangers did make a visit which helped the situation. Overall, the staff we had contact with were very nice and knowledgeable. The wildlife within the park is unbelievable! Deer would walk right up to your campsite. If you are not careful, the raccoons will enjoy anything not properly stored. The beach is a short walk from any campsite and they are wonderful. Best of all, they are not over crowded. Park WiFi was ok if you were near one of the buildings. AT&T/LTE service was ok, usually 1-2 bars. 50 amp service was good along with water pressure. The park store was one of the better stocked stores for a state park. Aside from the usual T-shirts and hats, they had soft drinks, milk, eggs, and other grocery items. Overall, this really is a great park and we will return. I do wish they had sewer connections. They do have two dump stations. The park was clean and well organized. Each time I visited the bathhouse, they were clean and well stocked. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

** If you are coming from the Camden/Lugoff direction, there is a bridge out on River Road just a couple miles from the campground. The detour is a long one unless you plan ahead. I would suggest calling the park and ask directions. **
This was out third stay at Lake Wateree State Park. However, this was our first stay this time of year. We pretty much had the park to ourselves. One of the bath houses was closed December first for the winter. I mention this because if you use the facilities, you would want to stay closer to the first bath house. The park staff was busy cutting and trimming trees around the park and making other improvements. Park was clean and staff very friendly. Check in was very easy at the lake front store. We were only able to get 3 OVA TV stations and not very well. AT&T cell/LTE was ok. The hiking trail was a nice outing. Sites are all paved as are the park roads. Fire ring and table at each site. Overall, one of the better parks and a great place to stay. We camped at Lake Wateree State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Little Pee Dee State Park, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

The nearest store is about 10 miles. The campground office is only manned for a couple hours each day so you may need to call ahead. Checkin was easy and staff we had contact with were all very nice. The park office does have firewood for $6 a bundle. No propane nearby. All of the roads thru the park are sand/dirt as are the sites. Most of the sites appear to be level with a few exceptions and all are very spacious with plenty of privacy. The site we selected did have a moderate grade to it and took some time to get our camper level. Some sites only have water connection for tent only. Some sites have new fire rings and new power poles. The lake is nice and they have boat and canoe rental. AT&T reception is poor as is 4G/LTE, but usable. The bathhouse was clean each time I visited. However, there was soap for washing hands, but no towels for drying. It appeared to have been recently painted. The park has a nice walking trail and there is plenty of wildlife to entertain. The only issue I had was that most pet owners did not pickup after them. One site, which appeared as if the people had been there for a while, could be smelled from the road as you walk by. We camped at Little Pee Dee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:      

I frequent the SC state parks and have found most to be very nice. That said, if it were not for the park activities, this would rank as one of the worst state park campgrounds. The campground is in need of a major updating. Very few of the sites are suitable for larger rigs. Most, if not all, of the sites are not level. The sites are gravel. The road thru the campground is paved but narrow and full of holes. Cell service (AT&T) is spotty at best. The main office for the park is not located near the main park. The campground store has limited hours. WiFi is available at the store during open hours but you have to be right at store. There is a washer and dryer beside store. The hiking trails are great. Bathhouse has had some updates and was clean each time I visited. This campground could easily be one of the best with a little work. As it is now, there is nothing inviting that would make me want to return. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stonebridge Campground & RV Park, Maggie Valley, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is located next to the main highway in Maggie Valley, yet not a lot of noise especially at night. The park is mostly clean and workers were always busy taking care of the grounds during our stay. The sites are very tight, as in awning extending to to next site. Most of the sites are pull thru except those along the creek. However, the odd/even site arrangement has your door opening into your neighbors door. With the sites being so tight, If you don't know your neighbor before arriving, you will before you leave. Sites are gravel/grass and are mostly flat. They offer 50 amp service along with basic cable receiving about 50 channels. Water pressure is good. The laundry was clean and machines all appear in operating condition. The pool is small but clean. The campground does offer wifi for a fee. The bath houses were old and dated but clean. AT&T/4G/LTE service was good. The park is very pet friendly and everyone kept them in line. The campground is about 50% seasonal sites. The seasonal sites are not kept in one section but located throughout the park. Some were "junky" looking which gives the overall appearance of the same to the park. What did not help was the overflowing trash dumpsters which smelled. It wasn't one dumpster, it was all of them. It appears the owners are too cheap to have the trash collected more than once per week. We camped at Stonebridge Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our fifth time staying at JICP. Often times, we travel with a group of other campers. We really like the park and all it has to offer. If you have children, they will enjoy the splash pad and the water park. Purchasing tickets through the park office will save you if you are camping. The park is arranged very well and sites are all pretty much level. The roads are paved and the sites are packed gravel. There are some sites that may require a extra sewer hose as some of the connections are far back at the rear of the site. Most sites are well shaded, bathrooms are clean. Bicycles are the best mode of transportation within the park. There are several paved riding/walking trails as well.

Now for the bad. The wifi sucks! It was not even sufficient for checking email. Reception with AT&T 4G/LTE is good. Several of the sites hold water and depending on the amount or rain, may be totally under water. While it did not rain during our stay, our site (#75) was a mud hole. Much of the site, with the exception of where the camper is parked, is low and did not dry. Unless you have mats, your door opens into mud. It appears that there has been little to no maintenance on any sites to improve this since our last visit. There are some sites that are shared. These sites are so close that if you do not know the person beside you, you will be well acquainted with one another by the end of your stay. The non-shared are well spaced with plenty of privacy. When inquiring about a stay for next year, we were told that as of January 1, 2016, they will no longer accept Good Sam. They do offer a Seniors discount if you are a well seasoned individual.

Even with the negatives, this is a great park and we will stay again. We will just do better at selecting a site. If not for this, I would have rated the park higher. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Poinsett State Park, Wedgefield, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived after hours and the park office was closed, so we setup on our assigned site. The site had limbs and leaves and required raking before occuping. Having not been here before and not knowing, getting into the site we booked was slightly difficult because of several trees. For someone with little or poor backing skills it would have been very difficult. Many other sites would be much easier. The road into the campground was narrow. If you were to meet another camper, passing would be impossible. We had some heavy rain our second day which left the road and our campsite muddy. It did dry quickly after the rain ended. Our site was clay/sand, electric and water in good order. The bathhouse was dated but clean. There was no hand soap or hand towels in the mens. There are many CCC era buildings and shelters within the park. There are some ruins from the CCC workers camp that are located near the park ranger's home. The park has many scenic walking trails varying in length and difficulty. There was a campground host but we never saw him. Park staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The nearest store is about 13 miles away. AT&T cell/4G service is very good. Despite the negatives, we really like the campground and park. Our fall visit was both scenic and enjoyable. We camped at Poinsett State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. The campground is in a location that allows you to easily explore the area around. Large trucks can be heard from the highway but is usually quiet by early evening. There is some type timber mill across the street that starts early morning. There is also a shooting range nearby as gun shots can be heard during the day. Check-in was easy and the staff was friendly enough. The grounds are clean and well kept. The roads through the CG are hard packed gravel. The sites are gravel as well. Most are level. The sites are a little tight. Our site (#58) held water after a rain that left several inches of water at our doorway. The campground Wi-Fi worked well but slow at times. AT&T cell voice service and 4G were good. The laundry had 4 washers and dryers, all in good working order. There are 6 bathroom/showers that are private, clean, and well stocked. There is a nice fenced area for pets to run. If you want a fire, there is a per day fee to rent a fire ring. When compared to other campgrounds in the Maggie Valley area, except the one next door, this one is somewhat over priced. If you have children, there is no play area, no pool or other entertainment. We camped at Creekwood Farm RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
