Clean, large campground caters to a lot of permanent/seasonal campers. Even though we called a few days ahead and requested a 30 amp site, and called again when we were about one hour away to confirm, we were not told that no credit cards are accepted until we arrived! We were told we could take our 35' Class A back down the mountain (or farther up) in search of an ATM. Fortunately we had enough cash on hand. Then we learned that even though the site had both 50A and 30 amp receptacles, it was considered a 50A site and we were charged the higher rate. To add insult to that injury, if you use electric heaters or your a/c, an additional charge is added. Also, there is no site trash pickup, and the dumpster is a 1/2 mile walk down a steep drive. Better bring a toad or golf cart!
Nice clean park, security patrols often, lots of amenities. The cable TV was not clear, but rather than call the staff we just set up our satellite receiver. Wi-Fi in park is for daily fee, otherwise I would have given maximum rating. We will definitely return.
We had a great paved site (no. 14) on the water. The campsite was close to waters edge. Personnel were very friendly. There is a very good hiking trail, a bit over two miles, but we were in the upper campground loop and had to walk a long way along side the road to get to the trail head. That is the only complaint, though, otherwise highly recommended.
Casino camping at its best. Huge level, paved sites, all the amenities, very quiet, security on site. WiFi is $13/day, but they want you in the casino not at the computer. Free shuttle every hour to all the casinos. Staff friendly and helpful.
Shady park with level, narrow sites. We ate at the restaurant, catfish was good. Some of the sites are permanent residents and a few are very junky. Bathrooms fixtures are decades old, sink stained brown from water drip and toilet loose. Would have rated lower but price is cheap. Check in is at the restaurant and staff was very friendly. No reservations allowed. Suitable as an overnight if you don't need the bathroom.
Stayed here four nights and used as a base for touring. Nice level gravel park, sites too narrow to use awning. Staff friendly and helpful, restrooms great. There is a very nice picnic area in the park. Would definitely return.
Stayed here one night heading west, and thought enough to stay one night on the way back east. Small park near I-40, but far enough away that the noise is not bothersome. This is a small gravel park with level sites. Decent Wi-Fi, friendly staff. Good stop for overnights.
We stayed here six nights while we toured the south canyon area. The staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions, with restrooms that are modern and spotless. There were only about ten picnic tables for 100 sites, so we had to wait for a neighbor to leave and haul that one over. Long pull through level sites, and good Wi-Fi. Back row faces storage row of RVs, and looks junkie. Front row has a beautiful view towards south. Loose volcanic rock a bit hard to walk on except where it has been packed down by vehicles. As a base campground for touring, it served us well.
It has long pull through sites, that are nice and level. Staff very nice, coffee, muffin and donut breakfast is provided. There is easy access to I-40, but it is also near busy train tracks. We used as an overnight stop.
This park is on Lake Wylie on the site of a major boat launch and county picnic area, so the traffic is fairly constant on weekends. There are two campground loops in a heavily wooded section which are away from the noise and traffic, and two small loops with a water view that are more exposed. The park gate is closed at night, so all is quite after about 10:00 pm. Reservations are not accepted; all spaces are first come, first served. Not much hiking except around the campground loops and out to the water's edge, but a lot of shoreline to walk. Staff friendly and helpful. Good sailing and fishing on Lake Wylie.
Great state recreation area on Lake Wateree. Most of the waterfront sites sit on a bluff above the water. We stayed six nights on the site with level access to a sandy beach, and so had a lot of other campers crossing our site to get to the public beach. Even on this site, our RV sat well back from the water under shade trees, so this was not a big problem. Hiking trail is a 1.5 mile loop that is completely level. Great fishing, concrete boat ramp, floating dock and good store on site. Campground loop and sites are paved and level. Summer weekends need to be reserved in advance.
We really like this park and have been there several times. The trails are great and are a part of the Palmetto Trail, which when complete will run from the mountains to the coast. The dam at the lake still contains ruins from an old mill site with a small but beautiful waterfall. An excellent mountain bike trail of nearly eight miles round trip goes from the park to nearby Campbell's Pond. This campground is very, very lightly used. On an August weekend in 2007, we were the only guests in the entire park. Scenic overlook a short walk from the campground loop offers a 50-mile view to the west. Campsites are level sand, very wide and heavily wooded. The paved road up to the campground loop is narrow and twisty but fairly short.
