Lovely place to spend a fall week-end. Not a lot of "attractions." There is a nice museum and some well kept trails but I think the main draw is the peace and quiet.
Our 23' TT and extended cab fullsize truck fit fine, but I wouldn't want to pull much longer in there. But there was a 40' class A in the pull through site next to us, so it can be done.
Mostly shady sites. Clean restrooms. Site surface is a concrete pad featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - richamor

Campsites are extremely tight. This park could be much better, but too many trees and sites are too close together. I almost gave up but we finally we able to get our camper in after neighbors moved their cars. The trees right on the road make navigating through the park hazardous. We stayed in one of the only two full hookup sites. The back-in site stated it was for a 40 ft camper but was really for a pop up. Site was very unlevel. There is a nice lake for fishing so its not all bad, but campground needs to cut some trees before I will go back.
You get what you pay for. Don't expect a lot of room. - Pete Trurnero

Visited in Cold Weather ( nights below freezing ). The campground has freeze proof water connections at site and we just disconnected hose at night and reconnected during the day. Very nice small pack, a little tight for larger rigs. We stayed in site 11 which is a bit of a trick to back in between trees and drop off along side of site. We will choose another site ( lots of good other choices ), on a second visit. Suggested to park management that they may want to consider removing the problematic tree. :-) Good location, trails to hike and good historical visit. Close to Landsford Canal SP as well if you are interested in Upstate SC history. 8 miles from shopping, gas and dining if needed. - Dale-from-NC

We thought we would give this park a try, as we had never stayed in a county park. I was pleasantly surprised with this facility. The full hookup sites are really nice because they are paved and near the lake. Nice size lake and you can bring your boat if you like. Beautiful and peaceful place with lots of things for kids to do. The only negative I can think of is some of the hookups are placed in kinda weird places, and longer hoses are needed. We will definitely be returning! - Bullit

Nice county park on a small lake with a lot of recreational opportunities. The interior roads have numerous speed humps that can drag on campers. Rangers were friendly. Camp store was open during limited hours. - DPH

We also paid a $4 online reservation fee. We chose a site with full hook-ups including 50amp. All services worked well. Despite there being trees everywhere, we were able to obtain a DirecTV satellite signal (Site 39). Our dish is mounted on our roof near the front of our coach. This is a lovely county park with a beautiful lake, beach, swimming area, playgrounds and numerous trails for hiking and biking. During mid-November, the CG was approx 15% full which made it very relaxing. We enjoyed our time here and didn't want to leave! We would definitely stay here again. - GottaGoNow

This is an attractive park on a lovely lake. However the sites were difficult to navigate, We were in a 38' fifth wheel and ended up parking in the large lakefront lot and walking around trying to find a site that we could back into. They claim to have pull throughs, but I didn't see any. If you have a smaller RV and can get here early in the afternoon ( no reservations), this would be a nice place to spend some time. - eimac

It says that it's on the lake. the only thing that's on the lake is actually the dock, the restaurant office and the little deck that they have. All of the campsites are up a hill with no view of the lake. Actually there are houses between you and the lake and a lot of woods so if they tell you it's lake view it's not. The sites are mostly gravel, some grass but most of them were gravel. Most of the sites are un-level because they were on a hill. Took us a little while to get it situated but we finally got it taken care of. There's one bathroom facility and the doors are locked so you have to have a code to get into it. They were clean but the men's room only had one working shower. There were no real amenities at the location. There was a couple little playgrounds, one volleyball net that was falling down, a dock that you can't use unless you rent a slip, a very nice deck area and a small bar and grill. I was told there was a laundromat but I never saw it. They do have little dog bags station all around the park. There was full hookup for most of the sites but for $40 a night I don't really think it was worth it. No WiFi and poor cell phone reception. - Stephen Howard

Nice park with paved interior roads and sites. We visited at the end of December and had full hookups even with temps going below freezing at night. Campground was nearly full in the middle of the winter. Fair amount of waterfront sites as well. Value rating was due the the cost in the middle of the winter. Seems reasonable for a summertime, peak season rate, but a little high for off season. Not too far off I-77 for an overnight stop. - Dale-from-NC

Small park, but nice and relaxing. I wish the park service would enforce the rule of people parking on the sides of the roads within the campground. Makes it difficult to get in and out of spots in a 40' pusher, has to be just as difficult if you're in most any size pull behind as well. - gsc66

This was our forth stay here. The park was crowded over the weekend. I don't think there were any sites that were not occupied. Even with the park being full, it was quiet. Cell service in our area of our site was non existent, but was good near park office. The bath house was clean and well stocked each time I visited. The roads are paved and easy to get around except in two locations where caution is needed. Sites are paved, mostly level and spacious. Lake Wateree is one of the few larger parks that have not been upgraded to 50 amp service. The only real complaint I have is with the dump station. There is only one. At the end of a busy weekend, the line was long with over an hour wait. Overall, we like coming here will probably return. - dtaylor

An old farm converted to campsites. Many not usable. Most of the residents are permanent with very old and shabby trailers. Bath house very run down and needs to be razed and rebuilt. On the positive side the old owner passed away and the son is trying to run it through an estate. The son is friendly and helpful but he needs to do a lot of renovations. He realizes this and wants to do things right. Maybe in a few years this will be a nice park. - esta34950

Chester State Park is a beautiful, small campground. The grounds and roads are very well maintained, and the sites are clean. Sadly, there are only 3 sites with an open view to the lake (which is 50+ yards or more away)... which means that if anyone wants to spend time at the lake (which is everyone), they have to cut through the areas around those 3 sites to get to it. This doesn't seem like it would be an issue, as there are several ways to get around the sites without cutting right through someone else's campsite, but it seems that cutting through an actual site is the way most people made their way down there. Basically, there's not much respect for "personal space". We didn't really have an issue with this, and still found the trip to be very relaxing (even with the distance to the lake, the view was amazing), but if you are more of a private person, this may be annoying to you. Another nice feature is that this park has a disc golf course, but you need to be a bit better than a beginner to really enjoy it (we are beginners). The course is cut out nicely, but it's still like hiking and the "rough" is really rough, so losing your disc in the woods can result in a lot of brier cuts and scrapes. - FlowerChild7275

Site was very nice for one without sewer hook-ups. Electric was stable and good. Water pressure was a little low for us to take showers. One of the toilets in the men's bathroom was broken loose from the floor and appeared to have been that way for a long time. My wife told me that there was two toilets in the women's bathroom that were broken the same way. The main problems that we had was with the enforcement of their pet policies. We kept our small dog on a 6' leash as the rules stated, but there were several other campers that just let their dogs run loose with nothing restricting their movements. One of the campers had a very large dog that was on about a 20' rope and when we went by that campsite I thought the dog was going to break the rope until the owner had to grab the dog and physically restrain him. Also there were several sites where the dogs were tied out to a tree, or the camper, and allowed to stay there. I thought that you were not supposed to do that. We tried to be very careful of the other camper's sites when we were walking but I noticed that some of the other campers did not care and would just walk through any of the sites that they wanted to. I also noticed several sites that had at least three or more vehicles parked at the site. Most of these sites are small and barely able to have one vehicle parked much less 3 or 4 vehicles. We also noticed that some of the vehicles were driving very fast through the campgrounds even though there was a 5 mph speed limit. This could be a great place to camp if the camp host or the rangers would monitor the campers and make them obey the rules. Why have rules if you are not going to enforce them? We will not be staying at Chester State Park again until they start making everyone go by the rules. - dakota ev

Chester State Park is a frequent camping destination for us.
>They recently upgraded all of the sites with 50 amp service! Yay! Hopefully sewer will come with a future upgrade.<
The park is generally pretty quiet and a great place for a relaxing weekend getaway for us.
The campsites are well kept. The grills and campfire rings have also recently been upgraded at each site.
I cannot comment on the restroom and shower facilities as we do not ever use them.
The children's playground is located in the park's main picnic and recreation area, which is away from the campground. - landcruisers
