South Carolina State Parks

Being so very new to camping, we have kept our first few outings to a several of the small, local state parks in our area of South Carolina. Since June, we have been out a total of 3 times, about 10 nights in all, with a 4 nighter coming up next weekend.

What a treat it has been. I have come to the conclusion that we have some real hidden gems here. Little Pee Dee State park, has been our favorite so far, just so calm and peaceful. Cheraw State Park, with a magnificient golf course that has been rated in the top 50 in the nation as a " best value".

Up next is Lee State Park. We have already scoped it out, picked our spot, and reserved it for a long Labor Day weekend!

All are wooded, with plenty of shade trees, many walking trails, rental boats, play areas for children and many other little things that make a good, relaxing time.

The average price per night has been $16.00! Clean showers, if needed, and great camp hosts.

If you ever happen to be in the area, check them out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Agree, we have camped in many SC SP's. They have suffered the last few from budget cuts but are still a great bargain. If you are a senior and a resident, the savings are significant.

We find them usually crowded on weekends and empty during the week and we plan accordingly.

We have been trekking down to SC for several years now in the Mrytle Beach Area for mini-family reunions... The home place is LakeWood Resort where my sister lives but we like to branch out at times. Both the Huntington Beach and Myrtle Beach State parks on the water is great...

There is all kinds of camping spots up and down US17...

We really love the high country of SC/NC/TN/GA/AL/VA areas as well... Places like Cloudland Canyon, Desoto, Cheaha, come to mind. I am wanting to go south of Cherokee NC now and start really looking into the Natl Forest camp spots there. Have visited a couple of them but never got stay at any of them for a longer stay.. Our kind of place for sure... Smoky Mtns have alot of great places as well..
