Great staff, property is very well maintained. We have twin 8 year olds and a 4 year old, who love this place. Great park area and pool too. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Fifth Wheel.

We didn't have any great expectations for this park, but everything here was such a pleasant surprise! Most of the sites are in a big grassy open field in the middle, with playground and space for kids to fly kites, run and play. We witnessed a fun Easter egg hunt consisting of several families. Most sites seem level (ours (#2) was) and some grassy, some sandy. The 6 sites in the far back are shady, the rest are open. We had our own firepit/grill which was great. Hookups were very good, but being in the back the wifi was sketchy. Our Verizon MiFi got a strong signal. The park was exceedingly quiet... haven't yet been to a place so quiet... on the other hand, we *were* out in the middle of nowhere. There is almost nothing close by, so go in well-prepared. The office/store had a small selection of things. Bathrooms and laundry room were in good condition and clean. The pool wasn't yet open but looked like it would be quite nice in the summer. Behind the camping area is another large grassy area with two large ponds, with fish (I think!) (catch and release only). A gaggle of four geese seemed to live there, and were fun to watch, less so to listen to: very loud and raucous, but made us laugh. The oval road around the sites made for a good 0.5 mile walk. A dirt road will take you back to a river (more like a creek) which makes for a pleasant walk in the forest. Everyone was very friendly... a worker (owner?) offered me a large tree limb he just cut off, for kindling. We would definitely stay here again... quite wonderful! We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not too far away (45 minutes) is Columbia, SC, which is a good sized town and offers all the shopping and amenities you might want. We also spent a day at Congaree National Park. (Warning: our visit in March was mosquito-free, but I hear it can be really pesky for late Spring/Summer/Fall times, so take lots of DEET.) We very much enjoyed hiking the trails there. In March, everything in the area was blooming so lots of color in the trees/bushes.

Big grassy fields with playground, pool, and group fire pit in the middle. Back in sites on one side with pull-through sites on the entry road side. Water pressure was very good, utility connections were convenient, site was fairly level, park wifi worked well (park was fairly quiet), and good Verizon reception. Very quiet country location. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Motorhome.

This park had huge pull through sites, and although they are grass, they were very level, and didn't have any problems. Our site, included a fire ring, and picnic table. Laundry area was clean and so was the pool area and game room. No cable. Yes, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Motorhome.

Very nice park off the beaten path. Family oriented. wifi but no cable TV. Pull thru sites in the back but impossible to level as the entire area is on a downward slope. Staff let us move to a slightly less slope but still could not level to our satisfaction. Next visit will ask for a back-in on the grassy loop. 50 Amp full-hook up- lots of trees and grass.

Not recommended for an overnight stay as it is off of the main highways. But for a weekend getaway, it is very nice.

Lovely park! Beautiful pool, lakes, and grounds. Very clean everywhere. Level site with easy in and out. Typical for a Jellystone Park there were many activities for children. We are older folks concerned that we would be disturbed since this was a Friday night, however we didn't hear a sound. I would not hesitate to return here and actually look forward to staying here in the future. The park is off the freeway but their store is well stocked. The one drawback, the sewer hookup at our site was set too high. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Fifth Wheel.

We had never camped at a Jellystone Park before. Loved that there were so many fun kid activities. Also liked that it was not a huge campground and we could see the large playground from our site. Kids loved it, plus the jump pillow and meeting Yogi. Really nice, enclosed dog park. Ponds were catch and release only, but no one seemed to catch anything! Nice walking path down to the river. Everyone was friendly. Very family and pet friendly. Will definitely be back. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are in an open field, but very firm, actually nicely done. Campground looks newer. No privacy. Wi-Fi works. Sites are reasonably level. Some long term residents in park. Some decent, some look run down. Playground equipment for children. Not much to see, do or places to eat in this very rural area. Campground is affiliated with Yogi Bear Jellystone Park. Long distance from the interstate highways. We didn't make reservations with it being Wednesday night in the spring. When we got there nothing was out for self check in or pick your own site. We called the number and the gentleman that answered seemed annoyed we had called previously. However within 5 minutes he was there and had a site for us. The lady the next morning when we paid was very nice. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is family oriented. It appears clean but the spots that back up to the woods are dirty and mostly full-time people stay in these. Their sites are junky and trashy. The staff is rude and not at all helpful once you have paid. I personally would not come back. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Travel Trailer.

Because of a storm the previous week, the WiFi was down when we camped here. Shady sites seem to be taken up by seasonal campers. There are nice level, grassy sites with good local TV available. There was a lot of activities for the kids. This campground recently became a "Jellystone" Park. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. I had heard nice things about this place and how they go all out for Halloween with hay rides and haunted house. It was great every weekend in October Kids get to trick or treat and most sites are decorated. Staff was very friendly and we had a great time. If you want to go in Oct. you better make reservations early because they book up quickly. I liked it so much I am going back for Thanksgiving. The campground is very kid friendly, but adults like it too. We camped at River Bottom Farms RV Resort - Jellystone in a Motorhome.

Very family oriented campground. Large, level. grassy sites. We had a pull through site. Very clean, well maintained, clean restrooms and shower facilities. We were traveling with our 2 granddaughters 3 and 6 and they loved the place. A little off the beaten path, but well worth the time.

This is a Jellystone Park. I did get my Jellystone reward points for staying. Staff was very friendly! Campground was very clean and well maintained. Sites wide firm grass. Pull through sites with playground in the center of the cg. Not huge, just right. Pool very small but very clean and well situated. 4 nice ponds in back and great place to walk a dog. Met other nice campers. We didn't use the Yogi activities listed, I wish we could have, but we used this as an over night stop to a farther destination. I would go back.

This is a nice park that is geared more towards a family. It has the usual playground area for the kids, etc. We just spent one night so most of the amenities were not used. The parking places are firm grass with full hook-ups and the site we had was a pull-thru. We would stay here again when in the area.
