The best run county park camping available, however this year, we had a group of "rent a campers" in the park. They had absolutely no campground etiquette. Their kids would ride their bike thru peoples campsites, parked their boats in other peoples campsites, never put their dog on a leash. I know we all have to deal with this from time to time, just wish the front offices would be aware to keep these type in check. We camped at South Cove County Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was completely redone over the winter 2016-2017 and re-opened April 2017. All new 20-30-50 Amp power pedestals and hose bibs. All of the RV sites have been graded and fresh gravel and crush&run added. Sites are mostly level but you may need blocks or wood to get your RV completely level. All of the roads through the campground are now paved. The layout of the campground was not changed so the previous map should still be good and the map on ReserveAmerica appears to be correct. The downside of all the renovations is there is a lot of bare good ol' Carolina red clay. They have seeded all of the bare areas but it will take awhile for the grass (or weeds) to grow. Until then, if it rains (it did for us), there is a lot of red mud around. The bathhouses were not redone and are a bit dated but were clean when we were there. This will depend upon the campground hosts though since cleaning is one of their duties. There are two for the campground. This was a "shakedown" trip for us to see what we'd forgotten to put back in the trailer after the winter. We only live a few miles from the park and drive over often because it is a nice park. The day use area has two boat ramps and a group of nice concrete picnic tables on the lake. We had walked the campground several times before the renovations and what they have done is really a nice improvement. We camped at South Cove County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is quite a bit of shopping and several restaurants on the US 123/76 by-pass. Walmart is just west of the Seneca city limits and has a small selection of RV supplies. There is also an RV/Marine dealer north of Keowee School Road on Blueridge Blvd. which has some RV parts.

We stayed in a pull through, site 10. It was terrible, right on the road, could not open our awnings, no yard to sit in, put our rug out, so close to park road people ran over it, dog poop everywhere, no one picks up after their dogs, lake is pretty, close to Clemson. We camped at South Cove County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

This campground was somewhat of a disappointment. Sites & road are very tight for bigger rigs, also had to contend with low limbs hitting roof of our unit. Once parked in our pull thru site, we did not have enough room to extend our awning & sit outside because our site was so narrow and right on the campground road. Site is partial gravel and not very level. The view of the lake was nice when cars were not passing by on campground road. Also, because of the narrow site and park road, while parked directly behind our unit, our rental car rear bumper was hit sometime during the night and of course, no one stopped to let us know they hit the car. We found the damage very early the next morning. Other disappointments was the amount of litter around the campground as well as irresponsible pet owners not picking up after their pets. We had to dodge a lot of dog poop to get to the car! In addition, there are a lot of geese in the campground and their poop is everywhere! Quiet hours were not enforced. The first night we were awakened from a deep sleep by very loud music at 11:45 pm. Lots of kids outside playing after 10pm quiet hours as well. We went to sleep night 2 listening to the "thunk, thunk" sound of them dribbling their basket ball on the road right next to our unit well after 10pm. Although this park is not very well suited for bigger rigs, it could be a very nice park if their park policies were enforced. The lake is beautiful, the public areas of the park across the lake appear to be nice as well and the town of Seneca is very quaint. We camped at South Cove County Park in a Motorhome.
