Ebenezer State Park is a terrific campground. The price for out of state residents is only $28 a night and they have some beautiful waterfront sites. In addition they have excellent boat access, free wifi, and the TV signal through antenna is very good for the major networks. WE stayed for six weeks and although their rule is you have to move every two weeks, we enjoyed all of the sites we stayed in. They do book fast however, so reserving in advance on the web or over the phone is a good idea. Off season there was plenty of spaces but they are pretty crowded in season and do require a day off property every two weeks to give other campers a chance. About half their sites are first come first serve and the others are reserveable, but once you get used to the system staying for an extended period is not a problem. They have many 50 amp sites and the water is from the city and tastes as good as bottled. Overall we were very very happy staying here and I give it my highest recommendation. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a county park that is well maintained and on a lake. It doesn't have amenities other than boating. The sites are good. Many have shade. We didn't have much trouble leveling. They take reservations now on line which is a plus, instead of first come, first serve. We would stay here again. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites need a lot of work leveling. One Motor homes front wheels were totally off the ground. We went to two different sites to find one we could get close to level in without raising the back wheels off the ground. Many sites on the small size that would only accommodate a rigs less than 28'. Upper area from the lake on the left side would be hard for a big rig to get into steep entry road and trees. TV reception at best fair to poor with 4 stations. Ranger came around to collect and when asked about the increase in camping fees was surprised that I knew they had doubled the senior price. Overall too much traffic in the park both vehicle speeding and golf carts(carts without any lights after dark). Several sites looked like they were there permanently. Will not make this a stop over in the future at present price with sites so unlevel. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.

Been staying here for years, A great campground right on Lake Wylie! Sites are first come first served. Gravel sites, 50 amp, sewer, water and strong Internet (free). Beautiful park with lots of covered areas and tables, huge boat ramp and swim area.! Helpful rangers and friendly campers. Great experience! The rate just went from $10.00 to $26.00 for seniors, so we will not be staying here unless they sign up with Passport America. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.

Amazing gem of a campground right on Lake Wylie! Campsites are first come first served but for the time of year we were here, it wasn't a problem. Gravel sites, 50 amp, sewer, water and strong Internet (free). Beautiful park with lots of covered areas and tables, huge boat ramp and swim area. Friends who lived here for 20+ years didn't know about it! Helpful rangers and friendly campers. Great experience! We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice peaceful little spot on Lake Wiley--not easy to find, but once you arrive, it's worth it -- a lot of value for $26 a night. Shaded lots, nice breeze from the lake and beautiful park/picnic area. Only drawback was there are no 30 amp hookups, just 50 and 20--I had to choose between running my A/C and Water heater or switch my water heater to gas to avoid the constant breaker trips. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nothing has changed over the past several years that we have enjoyed this park, EXCEPT the PRICE!!! Notwithstanding the current recessionary environment, York County, which leases the property from Duke Power Company, is making up for being under-priced in a BIG WAY! To jump from $10 per night to $26 is too tough for the seniors, and the younger folks pay even more. Consequently, although attractive, well managed and with excellent maintenance, the price increase has resulted in far fewer tenants. You will not need a reservation (which they don't take anyway) but plenty of vacant sites exist today. It will be a long time before this dumb move is forgotten!

We camped at Ebenezer Park for 3 nights recently. The location is ideal for access to Lake Wyile and Carowinds. The bathhouse and showers need improved daily upkeep and general maintenance. Worth the price. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park, and the price is great. $10 for seniors, $15 regular for full hookups, many with 50 amps. Many of the sites are quite unlevel. Good water & good elect power. NOTE: All sites are first come first serve, NO reservations. The practice noted earlier that the locals would set up an unoccupied TENT securing a site has been discontinued. However you can still bring your RV, of any type, and occupy a site without spending the night (s) and then come back for the weekend. Lots of the locals are doing this. Some came in 8-10 days before Memorial Day weekend and dropped their rig, coming back for MD weekend. I suspect that during the summer if you arrive after Wednesday morning you may not be able to find an open site. This is a county funded campground, so I can't gripe too much that the locals make heavy use of the park. Their tax dollars are paying for the park. We stayed here for 13 days, including Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed our stay. We would return if in the area. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.

Probably the last time we'll stop here. Have liked it in the past but the locals are making it unusable for anyone else. Got a site in January but were few available for larger rigs. Tried to stop in early April and left in a hurry. Within a few sites - poor ones - of being a full house and numerous pre-teen kids racing around on golf carts and gators with no apparent supervision. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Another hidden gem of the public campgrounds located around the country. It is a well kept and located on a lovely lake on the outskirts of a small city. Great for an overnight or an extended stay. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We wintered at Ebenezer for 3 years. I agree with previous posts about the local abuse of the no reservation policy, but that was really the only negative. By the way, if the tent stays overnight, they have to pay. The rangers are competent and helpful. This is a much better park to stay at during the fall and winter months as the noise level drops considerably. The extended stay policy changes also. It is a great place and the best bargain we've found. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.

As mentioned in the previous review, there are abuses to the in-and-out policy by the locals. Having said that, however, this is an amazing park for an amazing price. Large, shaded sites, fire pits, picnic tables, Wi-Fi, easy walk to park's lakefront, and good over-air digital TV coverage (8 or so channels w/some HD). We found all campers to be friendly, as were the park rangers. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.
We have camped here many times while visiting family in Rock Hill area. It is a very nice campground but the restrictions are abused by the locals. There is a two week maximum stay during the summer months then you must vacate the park for some period of time before returning. Not sure what the vacate time is. The regulars there save their vacated site for friends by placing a small unoccupied tent in the site before they pullout. The friend then comes in the park at their leisure and claims the "tented" site. This practice takes place all the time. We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What an outstanding Park. The staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable of the area. It was such an interesting concept to drive through and choose your own site. There were many many units that are there for extended periods of time and I'm not sure they all do the two week restriction rule. The long term people there were not particularly pleasant - they seem to have their own "click" but it was easy enough to over look that foolishness in such a lovely park. We would most definitely return here and hope we can get a site. I do like the fact that reservations are not accepted! We camped at Ebenezer Park in a Motorhome.
