A bit of a secret it seems, quality sites, good fishing, not so many masses of people, and those rangers...the best!

Best time is Halloween where campers decorate their campsites and people come from miles around to see them and vote. The winner receives a prize. These camp sites are very decked out and professional! We take the hayride from Lake Wateree Baptist Church each year...More

We hung out there during the eclipse and thus didn't really look around much. The place was packed with cars and people. seemed like a nice clean park. My granddaughter enjoyed the playground.

We have been several times. It is a nice and quiet campground. It has its own boat ramp and camp store with fuel also. The pads are nice and have plenty of room.

Lovely, spacious sites. I think a large RV would fit in every site, lots of level space for tents, plenty of shade, beautiful lake views.

I've been here before and I always have a great time. The lake is not that deep and catching fish without a boat is easy.
