Well this used to be our favorite campground. BUT, the lack of staff and order has taken its toll here. When we arrived our reserved site was being occupied by folks that clearly wanted to get two more free nights. They already spent one and from what we directly observed many other campers there were leaving way past the 2pm checkout time. The problem was there were way too few rangers to handle it...there were only two as far as we could tell. Yes the place is fairly clean as it has always been but the truth is that the wild west prevails here now. The boats and jet skis were noisy and came WAAAY close to our site and while I was rafting a power boat came within a few feet of me doing a hefty speed for this area! Fireworks were lit off even though it is illegal for them in any SC state park. This place is ruined by locals now whom are pretty low class folks that do not care about others, play music past hours, operate boats and jet skis too close to sites, stay too late, do not pay and drive way too fast through the park. It is a shame this previously wonderful park has gone this way. The problem is not the staff, it is the lack of it. The SC government should be ashamed of itself! We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

All sites are lake front, but only a few will handle anything bigger than a pop-up, and some won't even handle that. All are decent size, and plenty of room in between. Water spigots are on wrong size, so bring plenty of hose. Our site was plenty big, and we were only one of three sites out of 200 being used. The bath houses are old, but clean. They may be a far distance from your site. No frills, it is a state park. Most activity is locals using boat ramp. Awesome views and outdoor experience. We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Modoc Campground provides an ideal environment for camping. No amusement park or arcade. Just a beautiful lakeside setting for the nature-loving camper. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has done a fine job of creating attractive campsites. Most of them are right on the shore of Lake Thurmond. Facilities are spotlessly maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. And surely will return. We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pro's: Shaded sites that were pretty level, ample space between sites, many/most sites are waterfront, great place for water enthusiasts, staff was friendly. Super place if you want to get away from it all and hang out under the awning or around the campfire. It's also less than 30 min. from I-20 when coming from the Atlanta area. Con's: Many sites aren't suitable for rigs much over 30'; seemed to be even fewer that could accommodate 35'+. Many of the sites were in a "T" formation with 2 sites sharing a common driveway, which is the bottom portion of the "T" and each site making half of the top part of the "T. " Because of this configuration, it seemed like the length of the RV would be an issue for many sites, due to having to make an almost 90 degree turn to get out of the site and on to the driveway. We were in a 33' 5er on a 30' site but didn't expect any problems since there's about 4 1/2' of our 5er over the bed of the truck, putting us at under 30' behind the truck. Although getting in to the site was fairly simple, getting out was extremely difficult, even with a slider hitch. Overall, we liked this CG and if we could've gotten a pull through, or 35' back in site, things would've been even better. This review is written as a cautionary tale to owners of longer RV's. If your rig's total length is longer than 30', make sure you get on at least a 35' site. Conversely, it's wonderful for smaller RV's & tents. We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Paved roads and level sites. Plenty of privacy as spaces are many yards apart in most cases. Great place for quiet get-away. We camped at Hamilton Branch State Park in a camper.
