Best in South Carolina: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Quite undisturbed forest for 1/2 a century, used for duck hunting in the previous owners family for decades. I’ve started building a small cabin that’s unfinished hopefully completing in the coming years. Fishing pond and small seasonal creek flows after lots of rain. Excited to share it with others!

Great Getaway
Great location for kids and dog's first primitive camping. We had the entire place to ourselves . Kids had tons to do with the rowboat, fishing, and trails around the pond. Loads of wildlife. We had two tents set up but probably wouldn't have been able to fit more. Not a ton of flat space but lots of streams, rocks, bridges to explore. Great directions. Highly recommended! Our host, Alex was super responsive.

Rustic and charming.
I decided to take a solo trip with my dogs on a whim and found Alex’s place. I am lucky I did. My 1 1/2 year old dog learned how to swim and my 10 year old lady dog even joined her for a few laps. The younger one swam behind me in the boat most of the time and when she was done, they chased each other around the pond. They must’ve done 20 laps! There was a whole pile of firewood available so I lit a campfire to work on cooking dinner. I enjoyed trying to use the old cook stove in the outdoor kitchen area although that’s a thing that needs practice. I ended up finishing cooking it over the campfire. A swell rustic cooking experience. A tremendous thunderstorm woke me up around 11pm so naturally I went and watched it on the front porch. When most of the thundering was done I got to fall back asleep to the rain on the tin roof. I’m a fan of storms. In the morning I caught 3 bluegill rather quickly who each gave me 3 wishes for returning them to the pond. I haven’t caught bluegill since I was a little child with my step dad so it was nice to experience that memory. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have a little get away. Alex is probably the most responsive host I’ve experienced on hipcamp. His messages also have a welcoming warmth to them. I hope to visit again in the future and maybe I’ll even let my husband come too. Thanks Alex!!!!
