    Very nice campground. Only stayed 1 night. Campsites are large and there is foliage between most sites for privacy. Restrooms were claen. Electric and water hookups. Most SC State Parks do not have sewer hookups, but they do have a dump station.

    This is an incredible state park. We stayed here for five nights and after the first night, already starting planning out next trip. The camp sites are very spacious, the park is well kept, clean, and quiet. Our puppy loved playing in the lake (pet friendly park!) The staff are so friendly too. Can not say enough positive statements about this park. We've camped at a few state parks from ND to MN to SC and this is our favorite so far.
