Quite undisturbed forest for 1/2 a century, used for duck hunting in the previous owners family for decades.

Prices Bridge Inn & Campgrounds

5 sites · Lodging, Tents12 acres · Leesville, SC
We have an absolutely gorgeous 12 acres of mostly wooded and/or lakefront land on the West end of Lake Murray (Saluda River). As of 2023, we have 3 campsites and three cabins for visitors. We (me, my wife, and three kids) run this as our primary business and LOVE nature lovers and those seeking respite from their busy lives... It's NOT a place for loud parties--we are on Lake Murray behind the only super LOW bridge, which means there's virtually no boat traffic or noise back here. If you want to refresh, recharge or spend quality time with family or friends, we'd love to host you. *the low bridge also means if you bring a large boat you may need to use the marina or any of the free boat launches within a mile of our site... kayaks, canoes, john boats all fit under. :-)

Rustic Natural Campsite

1 site · RV, Tent11 acres · Santee, SC
We are located on 11 acres. Wooded areas, hiking trails on-site. Perfect place to watch for deer and other animals including our 6 on-leash dogs! It is a train lover's dream because we are close to the tracks and enjoy watching the train come and go so much so that the conductor toots and waves to us!! The Santee State Park has many water activities, picnic areas, and hiking trails. There are several golf courses nearby, and a local restaurant/bar within walking distance which often offers trivia, karaoke, pool tables, and live music. Just be careful as you will be walking on the side of a main road as well as over train tracks.

Rosewood Farm and Agripark

100 sites · Lodging200 acres · Winnsboro, SC
Rosewood Farm and Agripark is my home. I honestly had about the most amazing childhood one could have on this very land! We hunted, fished, made mud pies and played outside for hours, as long as we were in shouting distance for supper time! I am so fortunate to be the daughter of two amazing parents, who had a dream to build a working farm from nothing more than a logging trail in the woods. They built a 3 story, 10,000 square foot house by themselves- while raising a family! We have 200 acres of farmland that features rolling hills, multiple ponds, creeks, farm animals, show horses and countless wildlife viewing opportunities. Wild turkey and deer roam free all over the farm, coveys of dove fly out from the pastures and trails, and coyotes howl in the night. Listen to the frogs croaking, crickets chirping and whipporwhills calling every evening under a magical blanket of stars. Take a guided horseback ride or nature hike through the trails that meander through the woods around the park. Our newest venture is to offer primitive camping and some cabin rentals around our 60 acre Agripark! For those wanting to step it up a notch, we have erected a large concrete floor, covered event barn (for parties, family reunions, weddings, cowboy church, etc..,) and also a huge petting zoo barn with an area behind it for pony rides and 4-h/FFA functions. Also, a special historic Iron Horse miniature train and one mile of track has been purchased to go around the park! A greenhouse is being erected next, that will teach people about aquaponics and hydroponics! We have a rock wall, jumping pillow and many inflatables for the littles to enjoy too! Many things are on the immediate horizon for this special property. While we are under heavy construction at the moment in some areas of the park, many amenities are currently available. Why not unplug from the daily grind and spend time with those that matter most? My goal is to make this land as magical for your family as it has been for mine!

Camping near Columbia guide

Overview

Smack-bang in the heart of the state, the state capital of Columbia has easy access to South Carolina’s Great Outdoors. Camping getaways from the city are as varied as you could imagine. Drive two hours south, and you’ll hit Charleston and the Atlantic coast beaches; head north, and you’ll reach the Blue Ridge Mountains in the same amount of time. Closer to the city, Congaree National Park is a paradise for kayaking, Santee State Park sits on the shore of the 110,600-acre Lake Marion (the state’s largest), and Sesquicentennial State Park has pet-friendly RV and tent camping with a dog park on-site. Campers will find plenty of RV parks & campgrounds in and around the city, ranging from quiet rural Hipcamps to busy family campgrounds. Some of the best camping areas are dotted around Lake Murray in West Columbia, where you’ll also find great hiking trails, several boat ramps, and Dreher Island State Park.
