Nice setting with view of mountains in distance. Operated by host campers. Very well kept grounds. Campers must have self-contained units because there are no showers. Nice trail to river. No reservations are necessary due to large number of sites. Campground is open from April thru October. Close to many state and county parks with trails and other recreation. We will keep park in mind for future trips. - flasc
This is a small private campground in Greenville County, SC. Located "upstate" in the foothills, it is close to Caesars Head, Jones Gap, and Table Rock state parks. It is about 25 minutes to Traveler's Rest (the nearest town of any size with shopping and restaurants) and about 40 minutes from downtown Greenville. We chose this park because we prefer private campgrounds over state parks (so we can have full hookups) and we wanted to be as close as possible to Greenville. (After we arrived we physically drove to many other private campgrounds in the area, and believe me, this is definitely the nicest one. Most of the others are mostly rundown seasonal campgrounds.
There are only 14 rv sites, and 6 cabins. We chose site 14 (closest to the road, and only a seasonal camper on one side of us) for maximum privacy. They helped us back our travel trailer in, and even leveled it for us.
We had no problem with cell service here (ATT), and our wifi signal was strong even as far away as we were from the office (I don't know where the repeaters are, if any). There is no cable, but if we had Directv service we could have rented a box to use during our stay. We received several channels with our antenna.
Across the road from the park entrance is a small dock on the river from which you can launch one of the two rental canoes. There is a small playground. Water pressure was slightly low. We bought a generous amount of firewood for only $3, and one of the staff offered to get ice cream for us during one of his excursions into town.
We used the bathhouses once because we had a leak in our RV's shower, and they were spotless, as was the laundry room ($2 to wash, $2 to dry, and $0.75 for a box of detergent). There is a nice .42 mile beautifully wooded loop (up and down a narrow path, so wear boots) around the campground that I enjoyed with my dogs most mornings. Overall, we loved this park! - gmanfan1966
My husband, two small children and my mother pulled our camper and my in-laws rented a cabin. The facilities were clean and well prepared. It is a very quite campground so it lives up to the name Solitude Pointe. If you have small children you may consider a different campground because it is so quite there and little for them to do. There is a nice playground although it is not very big. We did go on their hiking trail and walked down to the river. The river is down the road a piece be very nice once you get there. I would recommend this campground to older couples without children. - V.Sullivan
All the good comments about this campground were true. We camped here in a 38' rig and had a nice pull-through site with room enough for truck and small car. Our satellite TV worked fine, but they offered hook-up to their system if necessary. The campground is wooded and the facilities appear to be rather new. Easy access to all the outdoor activities in the foothills that you could want plus close to Greenville for a larger city or to Brevard for a small artsy community. The family who owns the campground are awesome and made us feel right at home. If you need Internet then be sure to request a site near the office. The only reason we didn't give them a "10" was the lack of cell phone coverage and Internet access everywhere in the park. They have a new cell tower on property that will resolve all those issues as soon as phone company activates it. Will definitely come back. - AMLivingTheDream
