3 Parks near Dillon, South Carolina
Mar 2015 - $19.00
This is a very nice park. It's small (30 something sites) but each site is huge, full hookups and pull thrus. There is a very nice lake filled with bass (they have a sign in the office: "I came, I cast, I kicked bass.")
The office staff was extremely friendly and more than accommodating.
This is not a resort, and therefore doesn't have a lot of amenities, although there is a small playground and things to do in the rec room (tv, videos, billiards, books, comfy couches, card table, board games).
The only real drawback is that the train is nearby and it's right off the highway (I-95) so it's somewhat noisy. Personally, coming from an urban area, it didn't bother me, but it might disturb others who like absolute quiet.
Although not in a remote location, there isn't much to do nearby except the very touristy "South of the Border" 5 miles away.
I would definitely stay here again. - cherylbrv

Long level pull through good for one night, although there is road noise. Site was very hard packed sand/grass. - 2hams

Rate reflects Passport America. We stayed 3 days. Very nice campground, level grassy sites, some under trees. Very friendly owners. This was our second stay here, and we will stay again when in the area. - BillD

Rustic park. Looks like it was built by CCC, same as many other SC parks. Very pretty, very quiet and laid back. We will surely return. My site was a little small but we made do. Ranger drove by to see if all was OK about an hour after check in. Friendly place. - Laz713

We needed a 1 night stop-over so we called a day ahead to try and make a reservation. Online reservation system has a 2 night minimum. Never heard back from them. We lucked out that one of the 2 rangers was there to check us in (park hour is only from 11-12 each day). He said the answering machine had issues. I think they never check for messages! One night without a reservation was not an issue at all. The park is nice, but needs some TLC. The roads in are bumpy with potholes, and during our walk around the lake other campers warned us for an active wasp nest and that they had been stung. We didn't do much and I don't think there was much to do other than boating and fishing. Swimming is not allowed! The site we had was OK, one of the few pull-throughs. Not paved, but sand. It was level and water pressure was OK. Would stay again, but just for passing through. - knay111

Great little park. The campground office is only manned for a couple hours each day so you may need to call ahead. Check-in was easy and staff we had contact with were all very nice. The park office does have firewood for $6 a bundle. No propane nearby. All of the roads through the park are sand/dirt as is the sites. Sweeping was a constant as sand was being tracked inside. Most of the sites appear to be level with a few exceptions and most are very spacious with plenty of privacy. Some of the upper numbered sites only have water connection and are tent only. The lake is nice and they have boat and canoe rental. Had the weather been a little warmer I would have tried to catch a fish or two. AT&T reception is poor as is 4G. Bathhouse was clean and well stocked, and heated. I would rate higher except for all the sand. The park has a nice walking trail and there is plenty of wildlife to entertain. When leaving, had to stop at dump station. The water hose was short and had no connections to rinse tanks with. There was no way to access other end to use our hose. Overall, we like the park and would visit again. - dtaylor

Stopped overnight coming & going on Florida trip in March. Very convenient, easiest on/off Interstate that I have encountered, but no noticeable road noise in the campground. Gas stations, restaurants & convenience store in South of Border complex, too, but the self-service car/RV wash ($2) is the big plus if you drive thru snow/slush to get there. The restrooms are a bit dated, and the hot water in the showers takes quite a while to arrive, but everything works and is reasonably clean. Campground discounts for just about everyone - AAA, AARP, Good Sam, Military - so an excellent choice for a reasonably priced, no-hassle overnight stop. - NoVa RT

Significantly improved since our last stay. In 50 amp sites, which were pretty tight getting in/out of due to a fence across the road and the way long term campers had to park their trucks. We were in site 176. Very cold, did not hook up water or sewer hose.
Roads were paved and in pretty good shape. Trees well trimmed. No problems with scraping branches. Very good overnight park. Walking distance to all types of restaurants on the property (the steak house is excellent) if you don't want to cook. - MissingLinc

Easy access from I-95, but when you come off intestate, turn right toward the tourist place South of the Border. As you approach the establishment look for a large statue of a dude in a big sombrero on your left with gas station behind it. Turn "left" on to a very rough road and look for the office dead ahead. Campground is gated with narrow paved roads, good electric, water, good WiFi, and satellite reception. It is an older park and if you need 50amp, make sure you ask for same. We'd stay here again if we had to, but not a place we'd make as a destination. - Darfantin
