I frequent the SC state parks and have found most to be very nice. That said, if it were not for the park activities, this would rank as one of the worst state park campgrounds. The campground is in need of a major updating. Very few of the sites are suitable for larger rigs. Most, if not all, of the sites are not level. The sites are gravel. The road thru the campground is paved but narrow and full of holes. Cell service (AT&T) is spotty at best. The main office for the park is not located near the main park. The campground store has limited hours. WiFi is available at the store during open hours but you have to be right at store. There is a washer and dryer beside store. The hiking trails are great. Bathhouse has had some updates and was clean each time I visited. This campground could easily be one of the best with a little work. As it is now, there is nothing inviting that would make me want to return. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Hiking trails are great.

Nice campground in the mtns, with paved roads and crusher run campsites. I stayed in site #8 and it was level and by a stream. Good hiking trails, clean restrooms and showers. However, the restrooms could use at least 1 hand air dryer or paper towels to dry hands. I'm winterized, so I didn't use the water in the normal way, but had good pressure. 30 amp hookup worked as it should. Free Wi-Fi at what the SP calls the "country store", closed for the season, but have to be on their front door for signal. ATT cell did not work in the area, but did find a spot on loop 2 (closed for the season) around site 29. I've tent camped here and now in the motorhome, I will stay here again. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Staff was not knowledgeable and treated us like idiots even though she was wrong. Told us park was booked when it had many sites open. Poor signage, poorly maintained road, really not suitable for big rigs. Sites were small no garbage cans by dump station. The loop we were in did not have dump station or garbage bins, don’t think we were suppose to be in that loop. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a weekend on the way back home on a work trip. Reception is in a separate site from the park that has a store, etc. Nice and efficient, even though we had called ahead for a reservation. After receiving our tag we went to find our site (72) which turned out to be very unlevel. The ground was soft and our leveling blocks sank so after several attempts we were still in a sideways nose dive and we gave up to park in site 9 across the street. That is when we found out that the park is a cell phone dead zone. Only from the higher located bath house could we leave a message that we were not in our assigned site. Fortunately there were no reservation that prevented us from staying in the level site. The next day we hiked the Carrick's Trail along some very nice waterfalls and lucked out as there was the monthly Mountain Music event at the Lodge. We will probably be back for swimming in the lake, it looked very inviting! We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

There are two camp areas, the western main being larger and nicer. The older White Oaks campground to the east is smaller. They are in the woods campgrounds with some level and other unlevel but well spaced large sites. Apparently the unlevel dirt sites were older tenting sites. The better leveler sites have defined recycled beam borders with gravel surfaces. The CG roads are paved. There is a very nice vistor Center/Park headquarters by Lake Ootenoy with two fishing piers and a boat put in, and nearby Lake Pinnacle with swimming,shelters and playgrounds. The lakes are formed by a dammed up mountain stream coming off Table Mountain. Lots of hiking trails are nearby leading up the mountain. The three bathhouses on the outside are an unattractive apparently ill kept stucco and dark wood but surprisingly in contrast the insides are very attractive with tiled floors, nicely painted, and very clean with excellent showers. There is WiFi at the visitor Center. Very friendly host has been there for 6 months. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park with plenty of activities available. Sites could use some better leveling and loop access roads are tight for big rigs. Sites are gravel and are suitable for any size rig. We liked the space between sites...none were on top of the other. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived late around 11pm so the gate was locked, but they had given us the code to get into the gate. We found it hard to see the camping spot numbers in the dark. We had site 80, but after driving around the campground a couple of times the camp host came out and told us that we wouldn't fit in there. So she told us site 7 was the only one available that would hold us for the days we had selected. She was very helpful and escorted us to our site. Sites 2 thruough 8 will hold a large motorhome or trailer. They are easy back-ins, but not very private and on a main drag in the campground. The beach area was nice and clean and had several life guards on duty. Across the road from the beach area was a wading area with a water fall you could walk under. They also had a large deck with seating that over looked the falls that was really nice. This campground was really nice and worth the trip for us and we may return one day.

This is a beautiful park with great hiking trails. We stayed in site #1 (taking advice from an earlier reviewer) because we have a 40' rig, but my husband thought we could fit into many of the other sites OK. So if you are a good driver/parker and are adventurous, sites other than the "main street" ones (#s 1-5) might be fine also. But #1 worked out fine for us. Had to park the toad (truck) sideways in front of the RV to fit it but was OK. Not the most private spaces... Make sure you hike up at least a little ways up the Table Rock-combo trail. All the ponds and cascades are very pretty! We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a typical state park. The sites are OK and they are fairly level. They are updating some of the sites but from what we saw, only two had been completed. The site we were in said 40 foot and we did fit but the issue was not the site. It was the road in the loop. At the top of the loop, the pavement has deteriorated and is not made for larger rigs. The trees need trimming as well to keep them from scratching your camper. If you are over 35 feet long I would stay in sites 1-5 on the main street. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. It is somewhat primitive with no full hookup, but you know that going in. There are beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes, and of course the spectacular Table Rock summit. This is a family friendly campground. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice park in a beautiful area! Get the exact address when programming your GPS. Don't confuse the address for the Welcome Center with the address for the main park. We had a beautiful, large site with a creek running through it (site #72). We did not have a problem fitting our 35' motorhome into it. There are not a lot of sites on the loop that would accommodate a motorhome, so ours was great! The area is shaded nicely with plenty of trails to hike and walk. There is a country store with basic supplies, including firewood. Each site has a fire ring. If you like stargazing, this is the right place for you. Since the park is up in the foothills, the stars really are bright at night. The nearby Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway (Highway 11) is a beautiful scenic route. We took an afternoon trip and visited Historic Hendersonville, NC. We will definitely be back! We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a good time at Table Rock. We were in a pop up when fully extended measures 25 feet. We were on site #74 which said it could accommodate a 25 foot trailer, but it was a very very tight fit and very very very difficult to back into. The hookups, the fire pit and picnic table were all on the same side which made preparing meals on the outdoor stove a little inconvenient, not to mention we were a little afraid of the kids tripping over the water and electric lines. I really think that should be a tent only site since it was so tight and because of the placement of the hookups and fire pit. Bike riding for the little ones was very difficult given the steep hills, especially since they were not used to riding down hills. The lake was beautiful and had a decent beach and diving board and lifeguards. They also have boat rentals which were fun. We stayed over July 4th and the park was so crowded that day that we just stayed at our campsite and didn't venture to the lake. There were activities on the weekends for the kids at the nature center and really pretty hiking trails that range from moderate to more difficult. We hiked the moderate trail with 7 and 4 year old boys and they did just fine. A screen room for eating outside is almost a must since we encountered a lot of flies and hornets. The restrooms are standard SC State Park bathhouses but were well maintained and clean, but a little old. The air is cooler and drier there which would make it ideal for tent camping as well. It is a little far for us, but we would like to go back there some time. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This was a very enjoyable park. The campground itself needs updating; the 30amp breaker kept tripping under a moderate load (no A/C used). The camping area is very clean and well maintained, and the bathrooms/showers, though old, were spotless. Rangers are very visible, friendly, and the folks at the office are very knowledgeable and helpful. The rest of the park is great, especially the hiking trails that are well marked and offer tremendous views. Also, park offered 35% camping discount for February!
