Prices Bridge Inn & Campgrounds

4 sites 路 Lodging, Tents12 acres 路 Batesburg 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. :-)

The best camping near Aiken State Park guide

Overview

About

Take a journey back to simpler times at Aiken State Park, where you鈥檒l find a paddler鈥檚 paradise at the South Fork Edisto River. If you don鈥檛 have a whole week to canoe down the length of the Edisto, one of the longest free-flowing blackwater rivers on the continent, the narrow channel that winds through Aiken State Park provides the perfect opportunity for a day trip down the scenic 1.7 mile river trail. Don鈥檛 forget a fishing license, or you鈥檒l be missing out on fresh caught bass and catfish for dinner. What鈥檚 that? You forgot your bait and tackle? Fear not! Aiken has enough birds of the egret and heron variety for you to make a day out of birdwatching, or you can get your geocaching groove on by hunting down the various geocaches hidden in the park.
