First, this park was hit hard by an EF-2 tornado not too long ago, so they are still cleaning up from that. The campground is small in size, but does have about 8 FULL hookups. (50 amps and sewer). This is important since the dump station is out of service because of the Tornado. We did not know this until we got there. Lucky for us, we were on a full service site. The bathrooms were clean and nice, but I just looked around and did not use them. There was a horseshoe pit and community fire pit area in the campground. There are 3 ponds at this state park. Large one in the front, one small one that was accessible from the cabin area and one small that was accessible from the campground. The large pond and the pond by the campground are big enough for kayaks and small fishing boats. The campground does rent them. We caught a couple of nice bass, so there are fish in the ponds. There is also a nice swimming area and playground for the kids. They had one hiking trail open and there are several geocaches in the park if you do that. There is WiFi at the Ranger office and some small supplies. The only issues I have with this park are the Roads, the dump station and the location of the trash dumpster area. The Roads are in bad shape and potholes are filled in with ROC which is better than nothing, but they are still bad. The dump station being closed would have been a big problem for us if we did not have a full hookup site. Also, the dump station is in a weird location and could be very difficult to get in and out of. The trash dumpster area is location almost at the front entrance. I am sure there is a reason for this, but it was very inconvenient to dispose of trash every night. You had to drive to the dumpster. - Stephen Howard

Great value for full hook up site in a nice small state park. The park was recently a direct hit by some tornados, so there is a lot of debris and workers attempting to clean up after the storm, but it is nice with a pretty lake and some cascading dams. We saw people fishing, but did not try our luck. Park staff very friendly and accommodating. Verizon service was good. Sites a bit on the narrow side, we did not use our fire pit for fear it was too close to the camper. A lot of trees, but we were able to position to get satellite from our roof mounted dish from site 24. - Stax

The old reviews are misleading. Some natural disaster must have come thru here recently as there is a lot of damage and trees down. Most campsites would be almost unusable due to water damage, etc. Not sure what the hosts in SC state parks do, but it's not much. Sites with firepits full of garbage, etc. Bathroom small but clean. - MSSW

Excellent value for water electric site, but 30A only. Campsites are packed sand with fire ring and picnic table. Verizon service is ample for voice and data. Campground host was really nice and raked all sites after they were vacated. Heavily treed, pine trees, satellite reception doable with a portable unit, but tough. Our roof mounted unit could not connect, but there are some OTA stations available. Canoeing on the Edisto River is available. Not a bad stop-over location. One big gripe: The design of the dump station is horrible for big rigs. The whole park is on a one way loop that is probably 2 miles or more long. If in a big rig using the dump station there is insufficient space to make the sharp turn back on to the one way road. There would be the potential to turn back onto the campground loop, but a large sign has been placed in way preventing making that turn either. We left via going the wrong way on the one way, and this is common, we saw others do the same. On the bright side there is room and little traffic so no problem, but driving a mile the wrong way just doesn't feel right so to speak. The park should rectify this problem or make the one way a two way. - Stax

This is a small CG, consisting of just one loop within a pine forest. Roads and sites are sandy, but level and easy to maneuver with our 36 ft 5th wheel. Most sites are spacious enough and reasonably spaced from each other. Full cell coverage with Verizon, voice and 3G with Sprint, and none with ATT.
Site 11 is larger and more distant to neighbors. - Loki

$20 per night was for a level packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #12, was completely shaded by large trees. The site had a wooden picnic table and fire ring on the "wrong" side. As stated in previous reviews, it's a bit challenging to drive over the bumpy, narrow, tree-lined campground roads in a 40' motorhome towing a vehicle but it can be done. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay. The facility is well maintained and very attractive. The campground host was very friendly and helpful as was the park ranger. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The nearby city of Aiken is gorgeous in the old downtown area and has every amenity available. AT&T cell service was nonexistent and Verizon service was acceptable. We received eight digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch
