When traveling west on Highway 1 (Augusta Rd.), the right turn onto Oak Rd. is tricky for a big rig. We proceeded west through the intersection and turned into the huge flea market parking lot. Drove around to the backside of the market to the RV park entrance. Office clerk was very friendly and helpful. Park had many long term residents in the back section. We parked in the front section for transients. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Nearby Vegetable Medley Chavis Bar-B-Que was excellent. South Carolina State Museum downtown Columbia is very good.
Park doesn't have a lot to pas the time of day at. However, the sites are above average size and all mostly;y pull thru's. Staff very friendly. Over half seem to be full time residence. There sites seem clean but must be the only park I have stayed at that allows you to tie you animal outside when you are inside. We had enough tree in out site that we could not use out satellite but many sites do have clear path to sky. The flea market on premise during the weekend is large and has a lot of shopping that can be done. We stayed a week but in the future would be a nice one or two day stop over if traveling through the area. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
When we arrived there was no one on site. A note directed us to the space. This park houses many residents and is run down. The pond is nasty and the fowl appear ill. The space was fine but little room between campers. The sewer pipe was cracked and the fumes were terrible. Quiet the night we stayed but overall I would recommend looking and staying elsewhere. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
Nice park, many pull throughs, gravel/sand sites, fairly level. Adequate space between sites with many small to medium trees/crepe myrtles. Shade is not the best, but there is some. Water, electric worked fine, cable was on site, but we did not use. Easy access via I-20, just behind a huge flea market that is open two days per week.

Used as an overnight stop. Quiet at night, easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Decent facilities, no amenities. As an overnight it was OK. If staying longer would probably look elsewhere. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for one night while heading north. We had a pull-through site and had no issue getting set up. For the price the park was good, no frills, just a decent campground to stay for the night. Lots of seasonal trailers, but everyone seemed nice. Water and electric were fine, no issue with anything at the park. Nice to stop for an evening while passing through. We would consider staying again if in the area. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed here often. Easy access from I20 or I26. Pull thru sites with full hookups. Clean. Staff always friendly and helpful. We forgot a door mat one stay, called them and they picked it up and put it away for us. Six months later, on our next visit, we picked it up. Adjacent to a flea market open on weekends. Great price. Recently has filled up on our visits, even during the week, so reservations would be recommended. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Although we only stayed overnight, we were very impressed. Staff was excellent and friendly, and our pull through site was large, level and well kept. Good cable & wifi. What more can you ask for? We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this campground based on the good reviews on Good Sam and this site. We were disappointed. Our site was mostly dirt, the grass hadn't been mowed, and the dumpster was very dirty. We did not use the restrooms or showers so I can not comment on that. This park is good for an overnight if you are passing through, however I would not stay here beyond that. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
The sites are mostly sand/grass. Quite a few ants so be sure to spray. The one I was given was pretty tight due to evasive trees that I nearly had to cut back myself to get my awning to extend and to not have a mess on top of my slides. I asked for a 50 amp and was told only 30 was available, so I had no choice. I was told that I would be given a phone call as soon as a 50 amp was available. 3 weeks, and no phone call, even though there were plenty of other open spots. All of their monthlys are full, and they will not give you a monthly rate if you ask for it, just because you are not in a "monthly" spot. Good laundry facilities. The dumpsters had maggots and were always disgusting. Good for a few nights passing through but, not for extended stay. Not a whole lot of activities in the area, other than the flea market next door but, that's good for about 30 min of amusement. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The office staff was very friendly, she went beyond the normal just to accommodate us. The park is very clean, convenient to the interstate. The pull-through site was long enough that we didn't have to unhook the car and was wide enough to put out all the sides with no problem. We have a 36 ft RV pulling a car. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
We have used this campground as an overnight stop several times. The sites are short and mostly open sky, I could leave my car attached but barely. I put out orange cones as my MH mirror and car bumper were at the roads. They said to call ahead and make reservations for a longer site. It has dirt/gravel pads. The office staff was very pleasant and helped me find an emergency service person for my AC that would come to the campground. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is my first time camping so I really have nothing or any other campgrounds to compare it to. We stopped in here on our way to Texas. We choose this one to stop at because of its high ratings with Good Sam. Our gamble paid off. This is a clean, manicured campground and very quiet. The hookups are all that you would need. Check-in was a breeze, as we had already made reservations. Personnel were very nice and friendly. There are showers, and bathrooms available. A map was provided for us. There is a small camping supply store in the general office. Our site wasn't paved, but it was level. Concrete pad and a picnic table right outside our door. All in all, well pleased with this place. It made our very first night camping very enjoyable. We will use this one again, on our way back home. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
