Great Friendly Campground
Had to make a one night stop and this was the right choice. We were given an extra long site so we didn’t have to unhook. It backed up to the highway that at first sounded noisy, but didn’t stay noisy. We slept well. Bathrooms super clean. Great staff and very kind.

Great place to overnight off of i26. Everyone was very nice. The local street outside of the campground doesn't have much traffic but can be noisy when a veh goes by.

Great Place!
We booked 2 hours before our arrival. This place was fantastic for an overnight. Long pill thru sites and less then 2 min from ex 60 on 26 west. It was down pouring and they still escorted us to our site. The office personnel helped another customer locate other campgrounds because this KOA was booked. Recommend calling in advance to book. It also seems immaculate and would be even better without the 12 hrs of rain :)

I believe this is now a KOA. And if so, it was the nicest, cleanest and most friendly stopover we have ever experienced

Great Place!
This is now a KOA. Probably the best one we’ve ever stayed. One night stopover midweek. Called and made reservation. We needed a spot close to bathroom since we are a teardrop. We called to let them know we would be in after office closed. They emailed me directions for late check in. When we got to our site, owners came by in a golf cart to check on us. They live onsite. Nice conversation. The park is ver well kept. Bathrooms were A+. Very quiet. Getting ready to open pool beginning of May. Wish we would have had time to stay longer.

Over Night Stay
We stayed 2 nights. Once on way to Myrtle Beach, once on way home. I will be staying at this RV park whenever we head towards the South Carolina beaches. Took a lil tour to kinda check everything out. Pool area was nice, bath house was clean (my husband liked how tge showers had 2 curtains allowing for a dry changing area), laundry room was clean, landscaping was nice. The people whom run and work here are sweet. It was a super quiet camping experience. No one getting crazy outside their campers and minimal interstate noise ( only heard outside not inside camper). We requested firewood at our site for our stay and checked in after hours, so they had it waiting for us by our fire pit. It is currently under renovations, but I believe we are catching the back end of that because the park looks great!

This place was great!! We just bought our RV and this is the first campsite that we ever camped at. The owners were awesome they welcomed us with open arms and helped us with anything we needed. The showers were super clean and the campsites were clean and free of debris.

Why Is This Rated #1 In SC?
I always wondered why this campground was rated #1 in SC. After staying there for a holiday weekend getaway, it REALLY baffles me. Facilities are adequate to better than most. Shade was hard to come by. Pool was poluted with a drunk couple spewing vulgar language and exhibiting suggestive behavior. Guy in office had the likeability of a cactus. Probably would be a good stop over place while traveling through. But that's about it.

This is a great spot to stop between Greenville and Columbia. It has full hookups and sells propane. Price was affordable and good value for park features. Nice and quiet at night.

Perfect Spot Between Beach & Mountains!
This small, clean and lovely little country park, is located halfway between the mountains and beaches of South Carolina. If you need a overnight stopping place to rest up, this is the place! While there is not much to do there for adults, there is a swimming pool for the children in the warmer months. The trailer sites are very level and they have full hookups (50/30 amp electrical, water, & sewage - and they sell propane). The staff is very friendly, and upon entering the park, someone will escort you and your camper by golf cart to camp sites. Finally, making online reservations was a breeze and they do offer a good Sam membership discount.

Passing Through
Great pull through site #22 for our 41’ diesel pusher, towing. Hookups seemed brand new. WiFi excellent. There is No cable tv service. Swimming pool was clean & updated & felt wonderful after a long day of driving. Highly recommend House of Pizza. They delivered our dinner right to our site. This is a great little campground!

We were so happy to find this place! At around $30 a night for a pull through and full hook up with great Wi-Fi??!! You can't beat that! The owners were friendly. We had our propane refilled and they delivered it to our site on a golf cart.

Can't Leave A Favorable Review
We stayed here for several months. It is a beautiful park. First... The owners have made some great upgrades and take very good care of the park. The salt water pool is great and the bathrooms and showers are the cleanest you will find anywhere. But... In the 10 years of travel and the many places we have stayed for my husband's employment in the US, the current owners are the most difficult we've encountered. They are and will be, the park's down fall. This is the first park in 10 years we will leave and not look forward to stopping back to see and spend time with the owners ever again. They were super to work with before we came. They seemed happy to welcome us in, however it quickly became all about the nickles and dimes. We paid every month on-time, took very good care of their site, cleaned up after our dogs as well as cleaning up after others. We were quiet, respectful and obedient tenants. They asked us and others to leave when the job was done so someone else could come!

We stayed here three nights and really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. The bathhouse was probably one of the best we've ever seen. Had a nice pool and the people that run it were very friendly and helpful! They even had a dog park which was great! The laundry room was big and had everything you needed. They even have a spacious game room upstairs from the laundry room. They're in the processing of updating so overall we thought it was pretty nice.

Nice Campground
l call it a campground as a pose to a resort it has more of park like feel. Most sites are gravel with some tree, fire ring, picnic table. It looks like they are trying to update the campground. The pool is in desperate need of replacing. The showers are very clean and the grounds seem to be well kept. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Just an Overnighter
We just stayed for one night. Most spots are pull through which is easy in and out. Not far off I26. We will stay here again on our way back. Thanks for having really nice level spots and bathrooms. We had free TV. They don't have cable, but we picked up many channels. Well with the 30+ bucks.
