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.

This is a very large lake, and it's just beautiful. Easily accessible from Camden or Columbia, this is one of the prettiest state parks in South Carolina.
