    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…

    McKinney Campground – 109

    07.01.19-07.07.19 First time on the other side of the campground! McKinney has a total of 149 sites, but we have always stayed on the side with sites 50 and lower. Someone canceled site 109 about a week before the 1st and we were the lucky ones to scoop it up. Yes, it’s harder and harder to reserve the best sites–especially for the holiday weekends. Do not get discouraged! Site 109 is in a loop next to the boat ramp and marked with a grave site. I could find little information about the grave site or person buried there, but the marker says its the wife of G.B. McKinney born in…

    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…

    Huntington Beach State Park

    9.22.17-9.27.17 Fall Break…Anniversary Trip…Beach that allows dogs?! We loved Huntington Beach State Park and can’t wait to go back. It was so much fun getting to watch the dogs jump in the waves and we enjoyed eating out instead of our usual campground meals. Huntington Beach State Park is located in Murrells Inlet, SC, just south of Myrtle Beach. The park’s entrance is welcoming, with at bridge over the freshwater lagoon and saltwater marsh. Multiple viewing docks can be accessed along the walkway with lots of wildlife, including alligators. The park office is well stocked with ice, firewood, refreshments, and souvenirs. Atalaya House is just a short walk from the…
