1 Park near Columbia, South Carolina
Mar 2016 - $22.00
This park is not for the big rigs. The road inside the campground is not that good and some have ruts. You slowly have to get around the trees that are close to the road's edge. It would be hard to get a large fire engine into this park if needed. Some sites easy to get into and some not so much because of the trees. The street at the entrance of the campground (inside the park) is only one lane. Tight turns. Park staff friendly. We will not stop again. - consmith

This was our fourth stay at Sesquicentennial state park. We have 36 foot fifth wheel camper. We've never had any problems with the sites we were on. Very level, lots of room to maneuver to park and set up things. We've always stayed in loop 2 - two of our visits were in January. Rangers come through quite often. And the camp hosts are very helpful.
Bathrooms and shower areas are kept clean.
Walking trail is awesome!
When leaving our loop there is one area that is not very wide - but we have never had any problems as long as we go slow and we've seen big class As go through with no problems- just go slow. Highly recommend this campground. Close to lots of things to do in Columbia. - Lor-perh

This was our first stay at the park. We've camped in other SC state parks and had high hopes for this one based on those parks. We weren't disappointed.
We have a 32' Class C with 2 slides. We had no trouble navigating to our site. Unless they've widen the roads recently, I'm not sure what previous reviewers are talking about when they mention narrow roads, at least in Loop #1.
We stayed at site #22. It is semi private. The back half was completely private and surrounded by trees. The site was not level, but not too bad. The web site describe it as having a gravel parking surface. It was not, it was sand. The sand caused our levelers to sink and eventually we were out of level after a couple days.
The bath house was ok. We stayed Wed - Sat and I don't think the men's room was cleaned during that time period. The shower area is big with a lockable door. The shower itself was decent size with a normal shower head and a shower curtain. The water was hot. The water drained slow. The area outside the shower was dirty. Debris from people's shoes was all over the floor. It got worse as our stay went on.
The staff that we interacted with was friendly, however we never saw more than 1 Ranger in the park at one time. At other SC state parks we've stayed there are normally several Rangers and they patrol the campground throughout the day. I didn't notice that here.
The rest of the park is nice. It rained most of our stay, so we didn't explore too much, but we did walk the trail around the lake. The trail was well maintained. The lake area is nice with Pavilions and lots of picnic tables. It would make for a nice day at the lake.
Overall we enjoyed our stay for the price we paid. We will most likely return in the future and hopefully will be able to explore more of the trails. - mgirardo
