28 Parks near Cleveland, South Carolina

This is a somewhat unusual park, in that it is actually owned by a non-profit organization with origins back to Airstream. In recent years the campground has been opened to anyone with a self-contained RV as the campground does not have shower facilities. Sites are full hookup, complete with municipal water supply. If you're looking for a playground, pool, picnic table at each site, this is probably not the place for you. However if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place with some of the friendliest campers you'll ever encounter anywhere, then this is a place for you. There is a small river about 200 feet off the south end of the park for a refreshing swim. Also there is a large covered area with many rockers for you to sit and enjoy the sun setting on the mountains to the west. If you have a larger RV, this is one of the very few places in the South Carolina foothills that can easily accommodate the largest RV's made. Palmetto Cove is close to many fantastic waterfalls, hiking trails and several very large South Carolina State Parks, albeit all with very limited or no accommodations for larger RVs. The campground always has full time volunteer hosts on site. About the only time the campground is really busy is when a rally is being hosted. Though they do not take reservations, a call ahead is suggested if you want to avoid being there during a rally. Other times they do space the campers out to give everyone a lot of space. Almost all of the campground sites provide good satellite access, and there are several strong over-the-air TV stations also available. Verizon and AT&T signals are weak in the campground but workable throughout most of the campground. - Johnson's

Plenty of sites, open space, all grass some shade. Most are fairly narrow but big rigs are easily accommodated. Sort of an "outback" type of park. Off the beaten path. Lots of nature hikes on site and nearby. Good river access by foot. Good river fishing nearby. - Jacob D

This park is set up in a rally configuration with long rows of close together sites in large field. It is perfect for large group or rally camping. Sites are grass surface. Full hookups plus free wifi which was slow when park was full. Over 100 sites. Large pavilion for group events. Short hike to river. The surrounding mountains are beautiful in fall color. - Florida 55

Everything was great. When we arrived, we were guided into our site, which I was very thankful for. Only a month into full-time RVing, I am not the best person to guide my husband into spots. While it was a little tight to get in, we had plenty of room for trailer, vehicle, picnic table and an area for chairs and tables. Sadly, our timing was bad, as we were there when the wildfires were going crazy in North Carolina. Control fires were staged near us, and with a cold front expected, winds were due to shift. For the worse. So we put the home on the road and headed south. If we go back that way, we will definitely stay there again. - Becky N

Beautiful park. Friendly neighbors. Great owners. Very wooded, very homey feeling. Love the hiking trail with scavenger hunt! Can't say enough nice about this place. - FloridaWanderers

This is a wonderful CG for relaxation and reflection. We've been coming here for the last 3 years and we've never been disappointed. The owners live on site and truly care about your experience. CG is immaculately clean (bathroom and laundry room A+) and all sites are paved and offer enough privacy between campers. Plenty of places to walk our babies. Owner guides you into sites (back in). Uplifting Sunday morning devotion and light breakfast. They have a small playground and is VERY family friendly BUT if you're looking for a CG to entertain you with activities this one is not it. Rather it is a wonderful place to reconnect with your spouse and/or kids (or furry babies). It's an ideal location for hiking Table Rock (better eat your Wheaties!), DuPont SF (a must!!) and Pisgah NF. Brevard is only 45 minutes away (lunch at Square Root and dinner at Mario Tratorria). Happy camping! - Luv2hike

This is one of our favorite camping locations in spite of the minor problems pointed out by other reviews.
The Roads are a bit narrow, some of the sites aren't perfectly level. We also found some erosion where the gravel driveways into the sites leave the paved loop.
BUT - The views here are amazing. The lake is fantastic. But mostly this park has some of the best hiking in the South. Great trails that pass many waterfalls and creeks. It's also great to take drives into the Jocastes Gorges and Ceasar's Head areas and enjoy the views, waterfalls and other hikes.
We found the staff very friendly.
But the BEST THING about the park - there is almost NO Cell service and NO Wifi except at the store. So we can focus on camping without being bothered by the office, or tempted to play with our electronic devices. - Buddy Ray

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. - dtaylor

Nice campground in the mtns, with paved roads and crusher run campsites. I stayed in site #8 and it was level and by a stream. Good hiking trails, clean restrooms and showers. However, the restrooms could use at least 1 hand air dryer or paper towels to dry hands. I'm winterized, so I didn't use the water in the normal way, but had good pressure. 30 amp hookup worked as it should. Free Wi-Fi at what the SP calls the "country store", closed for the season, but have to be on their front door for signal. ATT cell did not work in the area, but did find a spot on loop 2 (closed for the season) around site 29. I've tent camped here and now in the motorhome, I will stay here again. - gsc66

Most sites are heavily wooded and the campground is very hilly. We upgraded to a premium site upon arrival so we could get one where our dish would work (it did). Ota was good with and the WIFI was decent. No AT&T but Verizon worked. The roads are gravel so they get bumpy and are pretty dusty. The bath house was clean and spacious but quite a hike uphill from our site. The pool was large and clean. Pretty convenient to Brevard. - Crottys

Black Forest was a very quiet campground with easy access to DuPont State Forest, Brevard, and Pisgah National Forest. There is a narrow, winding, gravel road that leads to check-in. The pool was open, but we didn't use it. The sites were level and the bathrooms were clean.
The campground has "Resort" in the name, but there is nothing about the campground that is resort-like. Our site was a pull-in which meant that the back of our rig was closest to the road - we arrived on a Thursday and asked to change to a back in site, but were told that they were already assigned (not reserved) and could not be changed - very inflexible, IMHO. The owners have strung a cable across the road leading to the campground sites - it is inconvenient to have to remove and replace the cable every time in and out.
Finally, the steps leading to the bathroom are uneven and there are no rails on either side to help steady folks walking up or down the stairs. At the least, it is dangerous, especially for older campers, and is also not constructed to code.
There are better choices in the area. - uga1988

Nice park in a very scenic area. Restrooms & shower house were very clean. Hosts were very helpful with info on the area. My only "negative" on this place was they assign you a site. I understand they need to manage their place, but if it's not crowded, then why can't you go in and scope out your own site that you prefer? - Bob806

Beautiful park for tent campers. Very clean. Roads a little steep and other sites pretty small; we had no trouble with our 24' travel trailer on the site we were given, but I didn't see another site we would fit on. Quite off the beaten path. Owners were extremely nice and very helpful. - bdodson

Very nice park in a beautiful area just outside of Brevard. Owners are very friendly and provide a wealth of information about local attractions and happenings. Park was quiet and well maintained. Wi-Fi is available but spotty during bad weather. Cell phone service is nonexistent. Only negatives where the narrow streets, small sites and they don't take credit cards. If you have a small RV, its a pretty nice place to stay. - John G

This was our third trip to Brevard and our second stay at Ash Grove. Once again it did not disappoint! The owners are gracious and beyond helpful. The sites are beautiful. The location is convenient to town but far enough out that you feel nature everywhere. Every time we go camping my youngest son begs to be taken back to Ash Grove. It really epitomizes what camping is all about. - TNGina

This is a clean park for adults. There are occasional distant barking dogs, but otherwise it's very quiet. Sites are gravel and dirt, near level, wide, not especially long, with no shade. Water faucets are somewhat below ground, making connection awkward. Some sites have unthreaded sewer connections. Voltage is good. Roads in the park are gravel, adequately wide, in good condition, with a few small potholes. The road into the park is asphalt, in very good condition, but essentially one lane; there's not room for two larger RVs to get past each other. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is strong; typical speed is 60 kB/s, but can be much slower. Verizon LTE works well. Laundry: 1 top-loader ($1.50), 1 dryer ($1.50 for 45 min.). There is one shower. Rate is the daily rate; there are also very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Cash only. - wjzcbn

Lovely park with two lakes, fishing and surrounded by trees. Very quiet and private. Gated security. The owner is very nice and honest. I accidentally gave her $20 too much and she came back to return it. The only negative is some of the sites are not very level. We couldn't set up in the first one because of this. If we are ever in this area again we definitely would stay here. - DennisD

A clean and quiet facility. Campground appears to be a work in progress: still developing. Road directions were a bit nebulous, but eventually found the place. All in all, not bad. - MaryAnnFrederick

I love this park! Great swimming area and grounds are clean and well kept. Hostess were friendly and very helpful. Nice campers store on site. Only problem I seen was the campground didn't have enough bath houses and the staffs cleaning schedule was during prime shower time. Overall this is a wonderful campground and we will visit again. - Rhonda Andrews

We just got an email stating that this campground is closed. Not open for 2016 and not taking reservations.
What a shame, it was a great place. - epperson1
May 2015 - $35.00
Campground is older style and roads are narrow, we were limited to 30 amp service (they only have a small number of 50 amp sites), No cell phone service from Verizon. There are sites large enough to accommodate larger rigs, getting to them can be a challenge. Nice place to stay, especially for the canoe or kayak enthusiast. Several waterfalls to enjoy in the area, one you can access via canoe from CG. Mostly gravel roads and all sites are gravel, sites are close to one another, but by no means as close as a typical KOA. Camp store was well stocked, staff was very friendly. - Tn22

The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner even escorted us to our site. We stayed Christmas week and the campground was full but it never felt crowded. - Cashlin
Sep 2016 - $45.00
This is a great park. It's a wooded setting that feels like a state park, and most of the sites back up against a small stream. All but 4 sites don't have neighbors in front of you so it's got a private feel. There were also trees and bushes between some of the sites to make them a bit more private.
The family that runs it is very nice, and super helpful, as were the work campers in the office.
A bit of highway noise near the front of the park, but not bad at all.
Verizon signal is a bit weak, but antennas or booster make it usable. - Robert Lee
Aug 2016 - $47.00
This is a very small park. There are 37 sites, of which 2 are pull throughs and 2 premiums. There is a tent area to the rear of the property. The entrance/exit is very narrow and could be a problem if two units were coming and going at the same time. The roads and sites are gravel and some sites have a concrete patio with a table. The area is wooded but there are street lights along the interior road. The owners are very friendly and easy to talk to and ready to resolve any issues you might have. There is a small, very clean pool and a playground for the kids. There is a fenced dog park but I took away a point because they do not recycle. - Michael47

The previous reviewers that classify this park as a bait and switch park are correct. This CG is in the current PA catalog and on the PA website. They are not on the "discontinued campground" list. Our rate was $44. a night, which is too much for this area. Oh, they do call this place a "resort". It does appear as if a lot of work was put into this CG. The small office is very nice and has a deck outback. The laundry room is small (2 each washer and dryer) and clean. Restrooms are also clean. Free wifi was satisfactory, the free cable was not. The picture was very fuzzy. There was a cable repair man out but the clear picture remained clear for only a short period. Another unpleasant occurrence was a sanitation pump truck working a few feet away from us for over an hour. Both noisy and smelly. Even though we will pass through here twice a year, we won't stay again. - hunkahunka

We chose this campground based on the most recent review thinking corrections had been made with new management. When we called we were told that they took Passport America. Got here and was given site #5 which is five sites from a busy highway. Told on the phone we would have site #26 (which was a big back in site away from the noise that stayed empty during our visit). The site was the most difficult in five years of RVing and I had to jack knife to get in. The "stream" in the back of the sites are a trickle of water so "waterfront sites" is a misnomer. The bathrooms in the office are outdated and has mold issues. There is no clear on site manager or person with legitimate power to make decisions. When we asked for a receipt, there was a discount but the office person said they do not take Passport America and we were charged for "free Wi-Fi." The Passport America logo is up on their door. Sounds like bait and switch. There are 13 sites with permanent residents which lend a different atmosphere than the "resort" they claim to be. Some of the permanent RVs looked old and deserted but were being occupied. The game room and new laundry are in utility sheds up a hill. The game room shed has some video games and that is it. I would not return which is unfortunate because the grounds are well kept and with reconfiguration of sites and on-site management this could be a "resort." But not under the current circumstances. - TailsAwagging

A great park. We have stayed here twice, once in June 2010 and we came back in Dec. The summer visit was great and we had a wonderful time so decided to return in Dec. We got everything we had hoped for, even a white Christmas. We love this park and now they have a pool and game room, and laundry room, with two new showers and pool rec area opening this summer: it just keeps getting better. I can say: this is the nicest park, the best place to come for a family, to hike, rest and relax. They have a lot to offer and the price is very reasonable. A very clean, neat park and you can tell the management really cares about how the park looks and wants everyone to enjoy their stay. - jhouse

OK park with good location. We stayed in a newer area 'on top' in the upper level. Some motorcoach drivers may not want to drive a large coach up the narrow sloped driveway to the upper area. Lower area was easy access. - FOSJ

Office was closed when we got there. I tried calling the number but was sent to answering machine. Owner later returned call after we had parked. There is a secure gate that blocks off the sites and if one of the residents hadn't opened it for us, we would not have been able to stay. The sites are very unlevel and the buckets covering the water hook-ups are filthy. This place needs TLC and lots of it. We paid in the morning when the office opened at 9. We would not stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

Very rustic park, a long loop in a canyon. Interior roads are gravel and rough, sites are grass and really off level. Worst part is that it rained quite heavily the week we were there and our site became a mud puddle. Wifi is good. We probably wouldn't return., - Wandering Wishnies
