Very nice state campground! We stayed at site #5. Only thing that I did not like about the campground was the loop road. The loop road was not in good shape. Another camper could not back into site #8 due to the condition of the loop road and the trees. With our 33 ft RV, it was stressful driving thru the winding loop but we made it without hitting any trees. Watch out for drain ditches on the sides of the loop road! For this reason, we would probably not stay here again although we loved the site itself. The natural bridge trail was nice and we did it with 3 dogs and 3 kids but it can be tricky and slippery in sections. In my opinion, site #2 is easiest to back into. Site #3 is not bad either. Site #4 is a nice pull thru. Our site #5 is hard to get into if you have a big rig but wonderful site once you are in! Bathrooms were very clean but not updated. Two out of 3 toilets in the ladies' restroom were out. Showers were clean (no doors / just curtains). Park is thrash free which means that thrash cans have been removed. Pack it in / Pack it out. - Tatiana

Although this park is small it is a great getaway for rest with trails and a park museum. It allows easy acess to two great lakes. Easy to make Reservations through state parks web site. We stayed in the RV section and camped in a tent (tent section was full of scouts but they were quite a mouses) but we now have a popup trailer for our next visit this fall. Good for a stop over on hwy 11 or a week of rest!! - goldfarmer

Beautiful area on the shores of Lake Jocasse. Getting there in our 37ft Motorhome was a little unsettling as the roads to the park are not exactly big rig friendly. The park itself is nice, the campground is a little tight and roads to sites are definitely not for big rigs. Sites are not the most level. We were in site 59 which was long enough for our rig and tow car. Site was clean. Didn't use bath house but took a peek - looked a little worn and like it could use some updating. We did use the laundry which was in next loop over and it was "okay" - not the cleanest facility. Since it was not in walking distance we had to take dirty clothes in car. Parked as close to laundry as we could and when we returned to our car, we had a warning ticket for parking in a lot, only 2 others cars there, that was designated for tent campers. The park needs to designate parking for those using the laundry facility. Also, upon check in, the park staff was not the friendliest. Seemed annoyed with tending to campers waiting to check in and abruptly gave us directions to camp site on park map that turned out to be inaccurate. Don't think we will camp here again mainly because of not being big rig friendly but will definitely plan a day trip to park to enjoy the beautiful lake. - Highway Honu

This was our first time visiting this park. Built in 1990, it is one of the newest of the state parks, which to me, makes no sense why they did not add sewer connections. Overall, a very nice park and campground. All of the staff we met were very friendly and knowledgeable. The park was clean and well kept.
Park Rangers make frequent rides thru the campground. The bathhouses were mostly clean - the floors stayed wet and dirty because of rain. One bathhouse does have a laundry, which we used and everything worked as it should. We did experience a lot of heavy rain during our stay which caused our site to wash mud and water to our door.
The sites are well spaced, electric good, great water pressure. OTA TV was hit or miss. AT&T cell service and LTE was good. The park has nice paved trails that lead to the tent sites, bathhouses and lake area.
I do not believe they had/have a camp host which may account for why our fire pit looks as if it has been some time since last cleaned.
I do want to give another big thank you to the gentleman at Burrell's (?) Automotive, a few miles from the campground. We had a mechanical problem with our vehicle and he stopped what he was doing to help and get us going again.
NOTE: On weekends this park and lake both become VERY crowded! - dtaylor

I stayed here for several days and had reservations for more, but left early for other reasons. The camp ground areas are very nice with a lake in the mountains with good views. I have a 40' pusher and while I made it through both loops, loop #1 is extremely tight and 40's in my view shouldn't be allowed on this loop and originally in #41. Loop #2 is better and finally stayed on site #15. 30 amp hook up worked as it should and has water, but didn't use as I'm already winterized. The views are nice, roads paved, extra pad for a tent and gravel, wooded, picnic table, fire ring, and nicely cleared for rear overhang of the pusher. Originally, I was in loop #1, site #41, site is easy to back into (once in that area), but a large oak wouldn't allow for awnings to be put out on the passenger side of the coach, the Ranger quickly agreed to move me to loop #2, with about 3 sites for my size, I chose site #15. The sites on this weekend in this park were about 95% occupied with everything you can imagine. The State Park shop was about the best I've seen to date and PR's friendly. The drive lanes were covered with leaves and difficult to see the drive through the loops, which again, are supper narrow, but I'll chalk that up to all the leaves falling this time of year and harder to keep up with to keep clean. My main issue with this S/P other than the tight fit is that the interior of the showers/restrooms needing a major make over with additions to hang your clothes, towels, shampoo and soap, etc. The sinks in the restroom area also need a major update. The shower/restroom area was somewhat cleaned each day, but a bit more time spent on it could have improved this. I did use the showers in the morning and night, of course the restrooms at various times of the day during my stay. If the restrooms/showers were in better condition, I would have rated my stay to 9, but rating it at 5 just for this issue. I'm referencing the loop #2 RR/shower area. - gsc66

This is one of our favorite camping locations in spite of the minor problems pointed out by other reviews.
The Roads are a bit narrow, some of the sites aren't perfectly level. We also found some erosion where the gravel driveways into the sites leave the paved loop.
BUT - The views here are amazing. The lake is fantastic. But mostly this park has some of the best hiking in the South. Great trails that pass many waterfalls and creeks. It's also great to take drives into the Jocastes Gorges and Ceasar's Head areas and enjoy the views, waterfalls and other hikes.
We found the staff very friendly.
But the BEST THING about the park - there is almost NO Cell service and NO Wifi except at the store. So we can focus on camping without being bothered by the office, or tempted to play with our electronic devices. - Buddy Ray

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. - dtaylor

This is a clean park for adults. There are occasional distant barking dogs, but otherwise it's very quiet. Sites are gravel and dirt, near level, wide, not especially long, with no shade. Water faucets are somewhat below ground, making connection awkward. Some sites have unthreaded sewer connections. Voltage is good. Roads in the park are gravel, adequately wide, in good condition, with a few small potholes. The road into the park is asphalt, in very good condition, but essentially one lane; there's not room for two larger RVs to get past each other. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is strong; typical speed is 60 kB/s, but can be much slower. Verizon LTE works well. Laundry: 1 top-loader ($1.50), 1 dryer ($1.50 for 45 min.). There is one shower. Rate is the daily rate; there are also very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Cash only. - wjzcbn

Lovely park with two lakes, fishing and surrounded by trees. Very quiet and private. Gated security. The owner is very nice and honest. I accidentally gave her $20 too much and she came back to return it. The only negative is some of the sites are not very level. We couldn't set up in the first one because of this. If we are ever in this area again we definitely would stay here. - DennisD

A clean and quiet facility. Campground appears to be a work in progress: still developing. Road directions were a bit nebulous, but eventually found the place. All in all, not bad. - MaryAnnFrederick

Short, sweet and to the point: We'll be back! Beautiful campground on Lake Hartwell. Easy to navigate with our 45'. This place was really nice, clean, spacious, great hook-up, lots of water pressure, internet was also good. The site we had was quite level. In fact, all the sites looked good and level. Driving in and out was easy and had more than ample room to navigate. - Full_Timers_2017

Nice camping on Lake Keowee with great views of the lake from most sites. The campground has a boat launch and docks, playground and pool so is well used in summer months. Many had their boats or jet ski's on the sites. Roads are wide and paved and sites gravel/grass. Getting there is somewhat off the beaten path. Sites are 50 amp FHU pull through and level with a picnic table. Not many trees so satellite access not a problem. There is a security gate but was not in service on our visit. Our site 97 was well longer than my 45 ft MH and tow. - Tom Willing

This is an excellent park, especially for boaters. Dock space, a ramp, a marina, fuel and boat rentals are available. Many sites have a view of the lake, but none seem to be lake side. Sites are level and of adequate size. WiFi was strong but we had intermittent connection with the web. This may have been related to the high winds during our stay. Cable TV is okay but with limited stations. It looked like satellite access would be available from most sites. Bath houses have multi individual fully equipped bathrooms which are well-maintained. We would definitely stay here again. - DrLewie

We stayed at Palmetto Cove RV for 3 months while my fiancé worked. The park was very well maintained and the grass and flowers were manicured on a regular basis. The view of the mountains was spectacular. There is a very nice path that leads down to a bridge that leads to a big rock on the Saluda River, if you walk a little further you can get to a cute little "beach" area that has a fire pit and a little bench to sit on. Fishing and wading in the Saluda is fun for all. There is a very nice pavilion with rocking chairs, table and chairs, fire place, grills and smokers that are available for all to use. There is a lounge area up at the pavilion also. The office has washers and dryers that handle larger loads. There is Free wifi too. The people at the park were extremely nice, welcoming and accommodating. The park is dog friendly, as long as you keep them on a leash. Love this place!!!! My fiancé, and 2 dogs can't wait to come back! Just a wonderful park all around! I do not know that daily rate, ours was monthly at $500.00. - Fulltimers-42footRV Carhauler_ 2 dogs

This is a somewhat unusual park, in that it is actually owned by a non-profit organization with origins back to Airstream. In recent years the campground has been opened to anyone with a self-contained RV as the campground does not have shower facilities. Sites are full hookup, complete with municipal water supply. If you're looking for a playground, pool, picnic table at each site, this is probably not the place for you. However if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place with some of the friendliest campers you'll ever encounter anywhere, then this is a place for you. There is a small river about 200 feet off the south end of the park for a refreshing swim. Also there is a large covered area with many rockers for you to sit and enjoy the sun setting on the mountains to the west. If you have a larger RV, this is one of the very few places in the South Carolina foothills that can easily accommodate the largest RV's made. Palmetto Cove is close to many fantastic waterfalls, hiking trails and several very large South Carolina State Parks, albeit all with very limited or no accommodations for larger RVs. The campground always has full time volunteer hosts on site. About the only time the campground is really busy is when a rally is being hosted. Though they do not take reservations, a call ahead is suggested if you want to avoid being there during a rally. Other times they do space the campers out to give everyone a lot of space. Almost all of the campground sites provide good satellite access, and there are several strong over-the-air TV stations also available. Verizon and AT&T signals are weak in the campground but workable throughout most of the campground. - Johnson's

The CG was very clean and well kept. The owners assisted us in getting our 5th wheel in the best location and knew exactly how to get it level. They also had a wonderful devotional Sunday morning along with refreshments. Will definitely go back in the future. - P Ardis

The park owners were wonderful. We had a pull thru and one of them escorted us to the site and helped my husband level the camper. We had wonderful neighbors for the short time we were there. We had trouble with the hydraulic lifts and one of the owners helped get things back in order. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. We attended the devotional service on Sunday and the owner did a wonderful job. Great place to relax or hike or explore. - Landa

This is a resort in all ways possible. Golf, swim, bike, etc and the lots are exceptional. Courteous, helpful, friendly staff. Trash pickup daily. Quiet. Waterfall. On the Ridge you can see forever, off the Ridge is a bit wooded but not so much as to interfere with satellite if you want to use it. - Lscabc

Easily one of the nicest settings in the country. Exceptional high end RV resort. Laid out and landscaped beautifully. Water, rocks, trees, incredible stone work. Golf course, a walkers paradise. The only problem with this place, it's awful to get to. Narrow winding mountain road that seems to last forever. The drive down the mountain will be more enjoyable. This is certainly not an "overnight" park. It's a destination so plan on several days. And get the camera ready. You'll take lots of pictures! - John K

Keowee Falls RV park has an amazing view of lake Keowee and includes boat storage for enjoying the natural resource! The management was nice and they have playgrounds set up for the kids. There are several walking trails and a gazebo towards the front of the park. The website has several images and a video that pretty much sums up the campgrounds. - Ronnie Hughey

This park was completely redone over the winter 2016-2017 and re-opened April 2017. All new 20-30-50 Amp power pedestals and hose bibs. All of the RV sites have been graded and fresh gravel and crush&run added. Sites are mostly level but you may need blocks or wood to get your RV completely level. All of the roads through the campground are now paved. The layout of the campground was not changed so the previous map should still be good and the map on ReserveAmerica appears to be correct. The downside of all the renovations is there is a lot of bare good ol' Carolina red clay. They have seeded all of the bare areas but it will take awhile for the grass (or weeds) to grow. Until then, if it rains (it did for us), there is a lot of red mud around. The bathhouses were not redone and are a bit dated but were clean when we were there. This will depend upon the campground hosts though since cleaning is one of their duties. There are two for the campground. This was a "shakedown" trip for us to see what we'd forgotten to put back in the trailer after the winter. We only live a few miles from the park and drive over often because it is a nice park. The day use area has two boat ramps and a group of nice concrete picnic tables on the lake. We had walked the campground several times before the renovations and what they have done is really a nice improvement. - WA4HTZ

We stayed in a pull through, site 10. It was terrible, right on the road, could not open our awnings, no yard to sit in, put our rug out, so close to park road people ran over it, dog poop everywhere, no one picks up after their dogs, lake is pretty, close to Clemson. - Sharronak
