Looking for campground to view Eclipse

We have decided to try to view the Solar Eclipse this summer. We need to book a campground with full hook-ups near the path of the eclipse somewhere in SC, NC or TN. We are traveling from Long Island, NY. Also nearby we will need to rent a car. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We would like a nice clean campground. This is our big trip for the summer so a pricey CG is not a problem. Any ideas?

My wife is interested. You can Google Eclipse Path and get an idea where you need to find a campground. Then I just chose a KOA in the path. I haven't booked yet, but was looking in Eastern Ky. They had a minimum stay of 3-4 days and around $50/night.

Well

Probably too late at this point. Instead of camping, your best bet would be to just drive to the umbra on the day of the event.

I am the OP. Thanks for all the replies. I am researching where to stay using ideas that you have suggested.

WNC and Eclipse

We live in western NC near Bryson City and Cherokee. There are quite a few nice campgrounds in the area. Most of the ones in the national park are booked but you may find space in a privately owned park. Lots to do in the area as well!

We live in Charleston, SC so I'll just walk outside. If I were camping it would be at Cross Creek rv park in Waynesville, NC.
