Great park, spacious sites, the lake was awesome but they have a lot of weird rules. Still had a blast. This is a hidden gem! We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Upon arrival, just park on the road and walk to the office. It will save you some white-knuckling through a one-way roundabout that is very narrow and tree-lined.

We are staying here long term as we visit our daughter's family. This is simply wonderful. A bit off the highway for an overnight stay, but, great for longer. About 10 minutes from some major shopping area (Target, Lowes, grocery stores, fast food, auto shops, etc). The concrete pads and space to get in to them is great. Roads have quite a few pot holes but not bad. Just drive slow. Spaces are great, plenty of room between pads and many trees. We are considering making this our winter home base. Staff are nice as well. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped off here enroute to another location, so we only stayed one night, but we will come back and stay again, hopefully longer. There are approximately 24 RV sites (camping cabins are also available) spread through a pine forest, most had a few trees/shade, concrete pads and they are not stacked on top of each other. There is a bath house, but we did not use it. Quiet and peaceful, aside from the occasional small arms fire from the near by Ft. Jackson ranges :) the sound of freedom. For larger Class A RVs or trailers, I would go past the office to the parking area down by the campsites and walk back to the office to register. The loop driveway down to the office might be a bit tight. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

First time staying here, and I can appreciate previous reviewer's enthusiasm. This is a terrific campground with long, level, and wide concrete pads, patio, grill, and fire ring. It appears some sites do not have septic hook up, and not all are satellite friendly. We did not use the restrooms/bathhouse, so cannot comment on that. The lake is peaceful and quiet as we observed no boating or fishing activity whatsoever. We will return. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Came in after closing hours so we set up on the first site open and set up. Went to the office the next morning to pay then departed. They are continuing to improve this park. There are more paved parking spots and it appears they are working on about five more. A little bit off the road but very quite. MWR rents canoes at the office. For the summer there is a beach which is only open when there are life guards. This is our third or fourth say here and have never had any problems. Our stays are mostly one night stays on the way to and from FL or GA. Would consider staying here during the warmer months. The lake always looks good. They are working on the boat ramp. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Nothing around and takes at least 15 minutes to get to the base. Lake was beautiful but only had swimming area open on the weekends. Hookups were good, concrete pads but unlevel. Close to Columbia. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This camp is great if you are looking for a quiet area to get away. The new concrete sites are very level. Back in sites with a few pull in, but no pull thru. They are not on top of each other, plenty of room between you and the next site. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Great pads, all concrete. Only has 4 pull thoughts. No wireless. No trains, planes or automobiles, meaning no noise. Woke up to birds, how great is that! This campground is remote but well worth the trip. Great friendly staff. No hassle check in. Swimming is at the lake and only when MWR life guards are working. No cable but they were working on it when we arrived. I expect it will be up soon. Great place and we will return. We camped at Weston Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
