3 RV Parks near Blackville, South Carolina

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 park has access to the Edisto River. They have a kayak/canoe trail setup. It's a couple of miles, about an hour and a half paddle. So, if you like to kayak it was fun. you can rent canoes and kayaks from here and I think they have guided canoe trips at certain times also. The campground is very quiet. I mean you can't hear any road traffic. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. They were the old-Style bathhouses but were well maintained. They also had soap and paper towels at the sink which is always a plus for me. As for the park itself, there's several fishing ponds around. The camp office sells live fishing bait. There's several things to do. (Trails, playground, biking, hiking, swimming, paddle boats, kayaks, canoes). The trails were well maintained and is accessible from the campground. The common area in the campground has horseshoe pits. There were nice big Charcoal grills and fire pit in a common area. The campground is being well maintained by the camp host. mostly pine trees so a lot of pine straw everywhere. It looks like it's being blown out of the camp sites and out of the road. All of the camp sites are sand so just be aware of that. we had carpets to help with keeping it out of our camper. Had no issues with hookups. (30AMP and water) everything went smooth. The roads are well maintained. there a couple issues where tree roots cause some bumps maybe a couple of pot holes but nothing major. This park looks like they do a pretty good job of keeping up with it. I look forward to coming back here again. - Stephen Howard

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 stayed here due to an evacuation in Myrtle Beach for hurricane Florence a group of us went seeking safe shelter. Once we got there, a few of us decided to leave due to the uncertainty of which direction the hurricane was going. When we checked out a young lady told us we would receive a two night refund. After several phone calls no one returned our call. Finally called and spoke to owner whom was very rude, and proceeded to tell me the reason we left was to have a hurricane party. The craziest thing I've ever heard. Campground is run down, owner is nasty. We are retired and on limited income it is very sad that people that people like her take advantage of evacuees. Don't waste your time visiting this campground. - Beachinmysoul

We planned a trip with our 2 young grandchildren and wanted amenities suited for kids. My wife found this campground online. We knew nothing about the area, but the website and reviews were impressive. We made the reservation...and crossed our fingers that we would not be disappointed. It was about 2 1/2 hour drive. When we arrived check-in was quick and easy and the staff was very friendly. We were on Site 41 which is a very level, spacious, grassy, pull-thru with full hook-up directly across from the playground. No cable, but we had excellent air antenna reception. The grounds were well maintained and clean. Very nice swimming pool and 3 catch-and-release fish ponds. Restrooms were very clean and convenient to our campsite. A kiddie pool would have been nice for our 2 year old, but he loved hanging onto "Pa" in the big pool. Our 6 year old loved the big pool, playground, jumping pillow and even tried her hand at fishing. I never tried the wifi connection. We had an amazing time at River Bottom Farms Family Campground...and we're already planning our next trip there. There were lots of other grandparents with their grandchildren there. Very family-oriented. I highly recommend!! - Roger Boggs
