This is an older campground with lots of mature pine trees in the area. The sites are tight and the roadway is narrow. All hookups worked fine. It looks like they're adding more campsites on an adjacent lot. The campground wifi did not work at the campsite but our air card did pretty good. The staff are super friendly. Jets flying around the airfield make for a very noisy environment and some great photo ops. - Melodycthomas

Small CG. Traffic patterns somewhat confusing. Some spots require significant backing ability. Spots very close together. Sewer hookup near front of site which requires looooong hose for most units. Gate closest to CG Closes early. Campers have to drive to main gate after dark. We planned to stay 2 nights but only 1 night available. This place is acceptable for 1 night stopover but I would not to stay much longer. - ebaldy

I had the opportunity to camp here with my mother and father, who is retired navy. The CG is nice with "no frills". A lot of tall pine trees which make it rustic. There are softball fields nearby with nice playground equipment. On the base you can fish, golf, drive golf balls, go to the movies, go to the gym, or bowl. There are things to do to occupy your time. The best thing are the fighter jets flying almost directly overhead. Nevertheless, I could only see staying here 3-4 nights maximum. - true rver

Poinsett State Park is a nice little park if all you want to do is hang near the campsite and relax, because there is not much going on around or near the area. It has a nice little "lake" (more like a large pond) for swimming and fishing, but it's a bit small to really spend a lot of time exploring in a boat or kayak. There are several miles of hiking & biking trails. The park itself is very clean and the spaces are fairly large. The downside is that there are only a few gravel sites... the rest are sand and dirt only. Also, the roads into the campground are a bit rough and narrow. - FlowerChild7275

We really love Poinsett State park. We enjoy the campground, the hiking trails and the Lake. We do a lot of kayaking and fishing when we are here. They even have some family activities on the Long Holiday weekends. My only issues are the roads and lack of items at the Ranger office.
ROADS: they are bad. Lots of potholes and very narrow roads.
RANGER OFFICE: Wish they had a couple of small items for sale. (Ketchup, mustard, syrup, etc...) We forgot something and the drive to the nearest store is about 10 miles away. Also, the don't have ice for sale, so the same thing, if you need ice, 10 mile drive. Besides these two things, we love this place and will be back. - Stephen Howard

Ok Camping Friends, We had a great time this weekend at Poinsett State Park. Here is a quick review. The campground was nice, but some of the sites were tight to get into. The lake had a nice swimming area with a lot of area to fish. There is kayak, paddleboard and canoe rentals for only $5 per hour. There are a lot of trails that are well marked. Some very nice mountain biking trails also. There is a beautiful spillway water fall for some awesome photos. Also, if you like geocaching, there are about 12 of them in the park. There is also a Food Lion and dollar General about 15 mins away in Wedgefield. Only dislike is that they don't sell ice at the ranger office, so if you need any, you have to drive 10 mins to the closest gas station. - Stephen Howard

The bad side: The campground is very run down. The office is generally locked, and nobody answers the phone. The swimming pool has not been cleaned or used in a long time. A sign at the office tells rates and provides envelopes and a slot to mark your site and leave your money. There are potholes in the roads, but they are not too bad. Check the electricity before you park and hook up--some sites don't work. The good side: The sites are level and grassy, and the grass was recently mowed in most areas. There were lots of open sites with easy pull-through access. Sites closest to the adjacent motels may be able to pick up wireless Internet (I did). Interstate access, an RV store, a truck stop, various restaurants, and a Super WalMart are all nearby. This is not a family campground, but for a couple who don't need a lot of campground services, it's fine, and the price is low. - Charlie500

Place is run down and uncared for. The laundry room looked to be good. No one around the place and no phone number to contact. Which is OK with us. However. It's easy to get in and out. We were in a motorhome with toad and had no problem with the pull through. Quiet place, within walking distance of a few restaurants and we had a good meal. The place has a few full timers in the back and the area was neat. The place needs lots of work, but it's a great stop off point and the utilities worked well. Verizon Air card works well in the area for high speed internet. Good satellite reception from our site even with the shade trees. This was probably once a very nice place and it's a shame to see it as it is. We will stay there again for a few days to break up the north south trips. A better sign at the office with "pick a site" would be nice. - Osmosis

The most mis-named campground I’ve ever seen, Camper’s Paradise is a former KOA, but the only way you can tell is by the shape of the outside of the building. Inside, the office floor is bare concrete and was partially under water when I was there. At least one large dog and three cats roamed around the dimly lit structure as I checked in, and the whole place ABSOLUTELY REEKED of cat urine. Water, power, and sewer was serviceable, and the grass pull-through sites were relatively level, but the grounds are dismal and poorly maintained. There are huge potholes everywhere in the park. The pool appears to have been abandoned for at least one full season, possibly more, as has the playground. Campground choices are exceptionally limited in central South Carolina. Although we love Manning, we will re-route our next trip to avoid staying at this campground again. - North Carolina Nomads

I stayed at this campground on June 29, 2018. It was a nice place to camp. We caught fish on the pier one night. Kayaking up to the creek was the best. Bath house was clean and recently updated. Campsite was level and grass. My family will be back! - Fishingtyler

Told me on phone that she has a lake front site. When we drove 1 1/2 miles down a washed out muddy road; we could not believe what we saw. Very run down, old permanent trailers. Duck poop everywhere you walk. Don't waste your fuel to get there, not to mention the muddy road. - xflyhighx

Elliott's Landing is a small private campground with 48 site most were 50 amp service all with water and sewage. They are located on Lake Marion near Rimini SC part of the Santee Cooper Lakes System. It was established in 1945 when the Santee Cooper Lakes were flooded making it the oldest campground on the lakes. The sites are all full hook ups with plenty of space for my 33 foot fifth wheel and tow vehicle. The road into the campground is about 1 mile of gravel road with potential of plenty of dust and or a little messy if there is a heavy rain. The sites are level grassy pads with a sandy base some shady sites with most being limited shade. The roads in the campground are easy to maneuver for a big rig. The sites on the lake are pull in and back out the other sites are all pull thru. They have a 300 foot fishing dock, a boat launch, a general store and two bath houses. I watched my brother catching some large shell crackers and catfish off the bank at his camp site. During the spring and summer it is reported that the dock is a fishing hot spot with plenty of action. The Verizon Wireless reception was good with a solid 4G connection. Over the air TV reception was good I was able to pick up all the major networks and more. I stayed at Elliott's Landing March 2017 for several weeks. I found it to be a great place to stay. A lot of the sites were long term residents but only a few of them actually stayed in the campground the others showed up with their boats for the weekends to enjoy some fishing and relaxing time. The area is a little remote with the nearest shopping area a 20 mile drive to Manning. - Andy52

A well worn, but nice area. Park has some unique features, but it is wild and rough. All sites are sand and the ones in the inner circle, where the restrooms are, can flood in rainy weather. We enjoyed the lengthy park roads which are rich in nature. The roads flood in heavy rain too. Most sites on the outer rim stayed dry while I was here. There is no gate, but Rangers do patrol regularly. Artesian wells developed by the CCC back in the thirties are a should see. Flies were a problem in this area as well as Bishopville. Mifi was good and we received a few OTA channels. Satellite would not work well here. - JC69

Lee State Park seems to be a large area of pine forest with some trails cut through it. The CG has large back-in sites with 30-amp electricity and water. There is a dump on the way out. About half the CG is set up for people with horses although none were there when we were there. It is extremely peaceful and pretty if you like the woods. You check yourself in using an envelope system and rangers drive by occasionally to see if everything is ok. CG is very convenient to the interstate. Surprisingly good cell reception and many regular tv channels. The road in the CG is sandy gravel and has washed out so it is wavy and requires slow driving. - virginianola

The road into the campground is very rutted and the ruts were filled with water. Couple loads of sand would help a great deal. The sites are nicely spaced with little to no privacy between them. Packed sand was level. My site 10 showed an electrical problem when I hooked into shore power. Inverter indicated the AC polarity was reversed. I left a note for the Park staff. Self service for registration - fill out the envelope and put your money in the iron ranger. Seems like it would be easier for campers coming in to make the price an even amount - 18.10 was the charge and I didn't have exact change so I left 20. No Ranger came by to provide change. Park location is convenient to I20 so easy to make a quick stop. Half of the sites are reserved for equestrian and they were in use when I was there. I did notice two dogs running loose when I left the park. My neighbor said his grandson had been approached by an unfriendly dog. Park staff need to address this. I would stay again when in the area and needing a place to stay but I would not seek out this park. - obxblond
