2 Parks near Florence, South Carolina
Aug 2015 - $30.00
Easy on/off I-95 is the best I can say about this campground. There was some sort of motorcycle rally going on at nearby Darlington Track so the campground was packed. More campers would not have fit in even with a shoe-horn. Motorcyclists revving their bikes and playing loud music until way past midnight. Perhaps a less busy time would have been better, but we were near a permanent camper which was a huge eyesore. Sufficient for one night while traveling, but not for a vacation. - drewcher

Office staff was very friendly and accommodating. I was given direction to the site and was met by the owner who helped me get parked and level. Nice long site. I didn't have to unhook. Like the other reviews have said, this is a good place for an overnight stop. Easy on and off I-95. I wouldn't call this a destination CG. Site was a mix of gravel and sand. Some grass between overnight sites. Electric, water and water pressure and TV hook up worked flawlessly. Pool is very clean. Lots of bird droppings all over the ground. There are several long term residents who have not kept up their trailers. ATT and Verizon very strong both data and voice. Did not use the camp WiFi nor any of the bathrooms nor showers. (That's what self contained is all about). Picnic table was unusable. - moderate camper

SUMMARY: DO NOT STAY HERE FOR LONG!
A family emergency sent us to Florence for 3 nights. Being the closest to the hospital it seemed to be the right place to park for a few days. They were very accomodating and nice in booking the site over the phone. As others have said, this is an old KOA... very, very old ex-KOA. The asphalt ends beside the office door and is replaced by dirt, mud, chipped up asphalt and potholes big enough to wash a dog in. Other than being old and not taken care of they have 3 issues that I saw. First it is a just one big sand field with little or no grass on the sites... ours had none. 2nd, they have a terrible infestation. Our camper was crawllilng with ants almost the entire 3 days. I did all the usual tricks to keep them out but there were just too many of them. 3rd, if you like old campers then this is a great place to see some... maybe some of the first campers created. There are rows of old, barely held together trailers side by side with with doublewides and dump trucks. I'd like to say something good about the place, but there's just nothing good to say about this one. They did have a picnic table but it was warped and rotting. They had a fire ring but it was a rusty old rim that was full of trash from the previous camper. Restrooms were pretty clean but very, very old and dated. This might be one of those you get what you pay for things but we'll pay more and drive further next time. - BAR and Me

We have stayed at this park many times in years past. However, our most recent stay showed that this park has declined significantly (the price has not). It is in desperate need of cleanup and repair. Sites are uneven and the hookups are needing repairs. Tree limbs are hanging in the roadways and need to be cut back. The access roads are narrow and potentially dangerous. This is not worth the price even for an overnight stay. - dalemitchell

Swamp Fox is a nice place to stay for someone traveling through. It is close to I-95, and easy off and on. The facilities are clean and well kept.
They take Passport America, so one night costs less than $20.
The sites we've had the 3 times we've stayed there have only water and electric.
There is an easy to get to dump station. - Jimal

It is great staff was amazing. The residents were great. The bathrooms were very clean. Although no pool you as a guest are allowed to use the pool at the hotel in front of the campground. - wildwoman1963
