First, this park was hit hard by an EF-2 tornado not too long ago, so they are still cleaning up from that. The campground is small in size, but does have about 8 FULL hookups. (50 amps and sewer). This is important since the dump station is out of service because of the Tornado. We did not know this until we got there. Lucky for us, we were on a full service site. The bathrooms were clean and nice, but I just looked around and did not use them. There was a horseshoe pit and community fire pit area in the campground. There are 3 ponds at this state park. Large one in the front, one small one that was accessible from the cabin area and one small that was accessible from the campground. The large pond and the pond by the campground are big enough for kayaks and small fishing boats. The campground does rent them. We caught a couple of nice bass, so there are fish in the ponds. There is also a nice swimming area and playground for the kids. They had one hiking trail open and there are several geocaches in the park if you do that. There is WiFi at the Ranger office and some small supplies. The only issues I have with this park are the Roads, the dump station and the location of the trash dumpster area. The Roads are in bad shape and potholes are filled in with ROC which is better than nothing, but they are still bad. The dump station being closed would have been a big problem for us if we did not have a full hookup site. Also, the dump station is in a weird location and could be very difficult to get in and out of. The trash dumpster area is location almost at the front entrance. I am sure there is a reason for this, but it was very inconvenient to dispose of trash every night. You had to drive to the dumpster. - Stephen Howard

Great value for full hook up site in a nice small state park. The park was recently a direct hit by some tornados, so there is a lot of debris and workers attempting to clean up after the storm, but it is nice with a pretty lake and some cascading dams. We saw people fishing, but did not try our luck. Park staff very friendly and accommodating. Verizon service was good. Sites a bit on the narrow side, we did not use our fire pit for fear it was too close to the camper. A lot of trees, but we were able to position to get satellite from our roof mounted dish from site 24. - Stax

The old reviews are misleading. Some natural disaster must have come thru here recently as there is a lot of damage and trees down. Most campsites would be almost unusable due to water damage, etc. Not sure what the hosts in SC state parks do, but it's not much. Sites with firepits full of garbage, etc. Bathroom small but clean. - MSSW

The check in office is only open for two hours a day. We proceeded to the camp ground, easy to find. Found our site easily and the camp host arrived to check us in. He was extremely helpful with plenty of information. The camp ground itself leaves a lot to be desired, sand everywhere, the road and the camp sites. Navigating the road is very tight between the trees. The pine trees are very dense with lots of pine needles all over. No T-mobile service, no satellite service. Electric service is 20-30. Water is from an artisan well, had a slight odor and taste. The river could be good for kayaking, canoes are available for rent. The down current was about 2 to 3 knots. Good hiking trails are throughout the park. - Nautilus

The park itself is not bad, if you are looking for a very rustic place to stay for a few nights and your main goal is to get back to nature. Unfortunately, it rained during our one full day here, so we were stuck in the camper most of the day. Cell service (Verizon, at least) was very iffy at best and antenna television sounded like Max Headroom on a loop (channels constantly froze or just went completely out). Bad cell service and lack of TV reception was an issue even when it was sunny & nice weather: the thick trees just make it impossible to get either one.
The worst issue that I found, however, was that the sites are completely sand. Sand was tracked all over everything & everywhere: before the rain. After the rain, it was just a lost cause. They really need to add some gravel to help keep the sites a little better for use.
The dump station is located in an odd area in comparison to the roads exiting the park. The only way to navigate it easily is to pull across and travel back through the campground to the exit again.
The park rangers, like with most state parks around SC, were awesome as usual and the camp host was very nice. - FlowerChild7275

We arrived late and left early so we didn't have much time to enjoy this park. I called ahead for late arrival instructions and was given the gate code by a very friendly employee. I was a little disappointed that a 2 night stay was required during the week. Interior roads were tight and I would not have wanted to be navigating a truck and trailer. Bathhouse was clean although a little dated. We would return if in the area again. - JJPP17
