Very well managed park, very clean, sites are close especially around the lake, no sewer hookups and must use portable gray water tanks ofter if you have a extended stay, overall I would stay at this park again. - Leland Hiatt

Well run campground all the way around. We had site # 27 which is right on the water, and it was just beautiful. Each site shares trash cans, which is very convenient and the sites are fairly set apart from each other. Ours had new fencing installed and really added to the look of the site. All in all a great experience and we would definitely recommend this CC and come back for the beautiful view. - dcbi

Mostly level site, limited internet. Great dog run. Many trees for shade. Stayed here in a travel trailer. - fred8509

Outstanding owners. Park is a work in progress and needs still needs work, but the area where we stayed with the cabins is very nice. Easy access to I-85 and nice dog run. Would definitly return. - grumpysgal

We stayed here for one night, it is ok for passing through but wouldn't vacation at this spot. No lake access and other campers are relatively close. Hookups were good and it was quiet at night. We have stayed at other parks in the area for half the price and are on the lake. - jtl2

Like others have said park is on a hill, but it is really not that hard to get level if you take your time. We stayed here for two weeks over the Memorial Day weekend and found the park very nice with good staff and management. Nice pool and plenty of activities to do in the park. Verizon cellular voice and data were both excellent. roads are narrow but you can make it work and if in the area again we will enjoy coming back to this park. - M5Adventures

All sites are on hill and none are level. We had to try 3 sites before we got close to leveling the motorhome. Wifi only in clubhouse. Narrow roads with many potholes, hard to maneuver 43 ft rv. Park is pretty. Staff is friendly and helpful. But roads and sites need maintenance. TT needs to modernize its parks with cable and upgraded wifi. Probably much nicer in summer when pool and lake are available. - westwill3

We were concerned about the ability to get our 43' motorhome/bus into the campground and into a site. When we arrived, the staff member took us by golf cart to look at a couple of sites, and we found one that we thought we would be able to fit into. We were able to get parked reasonably easily. As mentioned in other reviews, the sites are on hills. One other motorhome owner indicated that they were previously on a site that was so sloping that they could not level.
The weather is rainy so we haven't taken advantage of the facilities.
Cost was free for 30 amp site with TT membership. - pattic777

This is a sweet little park, usually very quiet (except for occasional jet skis), along the shores of Lake Hartwell. Not a ton of amenities here, but a great place to relax, with views of the lake through the forest from several sites. You can reserve specific sites in advance. For tent campers, the park has dedicated tent sites, separate from the RV areas and very close to the lake. - AtlantaBrave

South Carolina State Parks are top notch and the best value. Always clean, staff always friendly and I'm always a happy camper. - obxblond

This is a older state park that needs a lot of work. Roads and driveways are very bumpy and the underbrush throughout the park needs cleaning out. Not a lot of room in and around the sites for activities. Few pull throughs, back-ins are situated for easy access though. Hardly any waterfront sites, the loop that is open all year, you can barely even see the lake.. - Red_1955

This place is the pits, owners are very cheap. Bath house completely nasty with no water pressure, serious sewage issues. The permanent residents are drunk degenerates that would be better suited for a trailer park. Our firewood was stolen. Our tow vehicle was broken into and ransacked. I believe the residents prey on the people staying 1 night! But if you like to drink and party all night, this could be the place! Peace and quiet? You are better off boondocking at a truck stop. The showers and bath rooms would be cleaner and less theft! - Boondock70

An older park with a lot of tight sites that are close to each other. It's decent, but the owner will gouge you for every penny he can. There is nothing to do in the immediate area and the closest decent food shopping is 30+ plus away. I'd pass. - lutman59

The park is old and the campsites need a lot of work. They are not very level and close together. There are a lot of permanent residents and their sites are pretty shabby. However, the staff was friendly and the view at the lake is great. If you are passing through and only staying a night or two, they are acceptable. The low price using our Passport America discount help us overlook the drab conditions. I don't plan to return here. - Retiring in 2016

I was somewhat disappointed in this park. Set up in four loops, the sites vary from excellent room to too close, sites 25-70 being the best. The pros include nice shade in most of the sites, with good views of the lake, and room to maneuver our 37' fiver with little effort until backing into the site. The disappointment was in the cleanliness of the sites including ours. (I walked around and checked out several empty sites.) Lots of cig butts, bottle caps, and the like. Pet policy was not enforced at all, I had to call out three owners, two whose dogs invaded our site. Most of the sites have a downhill entrance, which can make hitching/unhitching a chore, plus not very level either. There are two dump stations, with easy access. - Red_1955

A campground that would be hard to pick a bad site. Most site are on the lake. It a modern upgraded park. The toilets and showers are clean. My only problem was the showers. You can only turn on the shower by pushing a lever. The water will stay on 10/15 seconds. Then you push again. You can not select your water temperature. It was too hot for me. - johnrobertpowers

I'm having a hard time rating this stay because Corps of Engineers parks are generally better than most. With just a few exceptions, they are all well laid out, well maintained, well run and reasonable in price. Twin Lakes is all of those, except it is getting "long in the tooth" as COE parks go. The layout for some of the campground is for smaller campers. In some of the campground the roads are narrow, the turns are sharper, the level part of the sites are shorter and and trees have not been cut away from the road. Maintenance of the sites is a problem also - the gravel usually found on COE sites has washed away and has not been refreshed. This makes for a site that is muddy and holds water in rainy conditions. Some sites are not level side-to-side. We saw campers with as many as 4- 2x4s under the wheels on one side used for leveling. Maintenance of the bath houses has also begun to be a problem here. In one bath house, a water leak (for days) kept the floor wet under the toilets. Also, there are no paper towel dispensers or hand dryers in the bathrooms - bring a towel with you! Concrete picnic tables in some sites are impossible to sit at because the seat is too close to the table, and some sites don't have stand up grills.
The best sites are 34 up to 53 along the lakefront. 35 is my favorite for the view and the size. Watch out for site 12 if you're booking online - the utilities are laid out backwards. Site 10 is not level side-to-side.
Gates are locked at 10PM, no in and out. Verizon has good coverage on lakefront sites. If you are booking during football season, check the Clemson Univ. schedule for home games - many party animals!
All-in-all, Twin Lakes is still a good CG with beautiful views at a good price, but as far as COE parks go, it's probably due for a renovation. We have camped here before, but will probably look elsewhere in the area next time. - Bama Camper

Just another great COE park sitting on Lake Hartwell. - Bamagolfer

So far I think the COE campgrounds on the Ga/SC lakes are great and this was our first stay at Coneross. We stay on the lake front. I would give them a 10 except our pull thru was in NO possible way capable of handling 45' trailer like the website said. Site #64 and #66 should not even be attempted with 30' trailers. On our site #64 you could get in but leaving would be a problem so we ended up backing into the site with our 34' trailer. - SC Upstate Camper

Second time to this park and it is wonderful. All sites are level and nicely marked with border logs. Did not give a higher score due to the lake being down but still had a wonderful time swimming. We will back many more times. - riddle family

We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The staff was great, especially staff at the gate. The park is well maintained. A park truck drives through the campgrounds many times a day. The campground is close to the town of Hartwell that has grocery stores, restaurants and home depot. Great place for quiet stay.
Check out your site before you park and if it isn't the best, check other sites and check at the gate to see if you can use one of the others. It was busy when we were here so we didn't have a big choice.
We will stay here again. - EandM on the road

This is my favorite campground! The sites are huge and right on the water, very private. I highly recommend it! - cascan

Wonderful park with very friendly staff. The bathouse was clean and great water pressure. The park was busy, but quiet and night. A wonderful park for walking, fishing and boating. Some of the front sights are near a highway, so get a sight towards to back of the park. The park seemed very safe and secure and night. The sights were pretty level, but not very spacious. Awesome sunsets and sunrises! - gsimichele

Hate to give anyone a poor review, but we have to agree with the previous reviews of this park.
Although it's fairly close to I-85, coming in from the north of Greenville on US 25 it was a long, long way through downtown traffic at rush hour, to Springwood RV Park which sits on the south side of town.
The park is in a commercial area with an airport on one side, an 18-wheel freight terminal on the second side, a run-down mobile park on the third side, and a railroad track on the fourth side - immediately alongside the park; the train at midnight almost blasted us out of bed.
The park is at least 90% full-timers, a lot of whom are still working-age, and has a mix of really dilapidated RV's alongside some really nice ones. Sites were almost totally back-in's with very narrow streets and residents' cars parallel parked on both sides, making it a challenge to back in.
Utilities worked well, but cleanliness left something to be desired. We had to pick up bit of trash and some old rusty camping gear (screw anchors) before we could back in. Cigarette butts were plentiful in the grass.
A bit noisy early in the evening, it quieted down totally by the 10 PM quite time (except for the train) and the residents were all very nice to us.
The only amenity is a small office with a very nice older gentleman who showed us a couple of sites when we checked in.
It seems to be run as an RV extension of the the mobile park, where the residents are totally responsible for the maintenance of their lots and it needs better cleanliness in general.
It's like spending the night in an old mobile home park right next to the tracks.
If we really had to stay in Greenville (there aren't many choices), we could stay here again, but we'd probably keep on going if we had a choice. - Airscreamers

There is a reason there is no picture on their website. The park is extremely run down with a lot of very old mobile homes and RVs of permanent residents. The park is also in a run-down area of town. No amenities. The only plus I can give is that the manager was a very nice man. Would not stay here again. - justkreuzin

A most disappointing park. Almost entirely permanent residents. RVs were in a section of an antiquated mobile home park. Pull-thrus, one of which we had, required driving across a field to access a site on the other side. The site itself was gravel, mostly level and somewhat narrow. No services, store, restroom facility (which we wouldn't use anyway), playground, dedicated dog walk, etc., etc. I suppose that "run down" would fit this park very well. - Motorhome Traveler
