    Huntington Beach State Park -65

    09.20.20-09.26.20 A full week at the beach! We really needed this family vacation and had so much fun. Huntington Beach State Park is located in Murrells Inlet, SC, south of Myrtle Beach. We stayed in this campground three years ago—see details here. Since our last visit, the campground has added a new section—complete with paved sites and full hook-up. If you have caught on to our type of camping, you’ll know that we do not prefer this set-up because sites are usually on top of each other. I will be sharing a couple sites in the (new) south section of Huntington Beach State Park campground that we would reserve in…

    Hamilton Branch State Park

    09.18.20-08.20.20 Hamilton Branch State Park is located in Plum Branch, South Carolina on the Georgia line, just north of Augusta. It has beautiful waterfront sites on Thurmond Lake, off the Savannah River. We crossed over Thurmond Lake Dam on the way into the park. I’m not scared of heights, but I had a little bit of anxiety going over the Dam with the camper in tow. It was a long way down. Hamilton Branch State Park has 173 sites with water and electricity, but you must do your research when booking these sites. Half of the sites are not laid out for travel trailers and 5th wheels. We specifically booked…

    Santee State Park – SC

    03.29.19-04.03.19 Santee State Park is located on Lake Marion about an hour inland from Charleston, SC. That puts it at about a 5-hour drive for us pulling the camper, but does not include the terrible Atlanta traffic. What personally drew us to this state park? A close friend recently took a job there as a ranger! What might draw others to Santee? It is great for fishing, kayaking, and everyone seems to have a boat. This state park is huge (2500 acres), so with that everything is spread out. We had to drive to any trails we wanted to hike. It was a ten-minute drive to the camp store and…

  • Coneross Campground,  South Carolina Campgrounds

    Coneross Campground

    06.29.18-07.01.18 Found a hidden gem on Lake Hartwell and can’t wait to go back! We were visiting a friend in Townville, SC for the weekend and she just happens to live five minutes from Coneross Campground. It is a Corps of Engineers Park near the GA/SC border. I say hidden gem because when searching on Facebook groups it seems that most of the posts are older. The campground has 105 sites, twelve of them being primitive, non-hookup sites. We walked the entire campground Saturday morning and noticed that we would be really happy with the majority of the sites. The waterfront sites were just gorgeous! We didn’t book in time…

  • Pine Ridge Campground,  South Carolina Campgrounds

    Pine Ridge Campground

    05.18.18-05.20.18 First time at a privately owned campground, first time at a full hook up. Pine Ridge Campground is located in Roebuck, South Carolina about 10 minutes outside of downtown Spartanburg and an hour away from Greenville. We chose this campground because it was convenient to our friends’ house that we were visiting for the weekend. The campground is owned by a family, but we only ever came across Evan (their son) and a younger boy who stopped by to make sure we knew where we were going when we pulled in. The campsites can be rented by the night, week, or month. We were a little wary about going…
