Waterfall camping close to CLT

1 site 路 RV, Tent2 acres 路 Bessemer City, NC
My Neighbor has started his own Campsite, "The Swimming Hole". If mine is booked up and you still want to camp, look him up. His is better suited for small groups but has much more privacy. We have a new road to the campsite; you can now drive down with two-wheel drive vehicle or RV down and park near your tent! There is plenty of soft sand to set up one tent or ten tents; large groups are welcome for an extra fee. A Porta-Potty is available at the campsite. Swimming is usually possible at the base of the falls; however, large amounts of rain can change conditions and make it unusable. I should also add, this is not a completely private campsite deep in the woods. The camp is visible from a shared driveway, and my residence is up a hill that overlooks the area. Also, I do not own the land on the other side of the stream. Occasionally, the owners of that land will spend a weekend afternoon enjoying the waterfall view also. Still much quieter and more private than a regular campground. Glamping tents and additional camping tents are available through a local company. Look in the pictures for the tent with red, white, and blue balloons. Message me for details. Close to US National Whitewater Center (mountain biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking), Kings Mountain National Military Park (Horseback riding and history), Crowders Mountain (Hiking), 3 miles off of I-85 and US-321 for people passing through.

Rosewood Farm and Agripark

100 sites 路 Lodging200 acres 路 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!

The best camping near Andrew Jackson State Park guide

Overview

About

It will come as no surprise that Andrew Jackson State Park is South Carolina鈥檚 most popular destination for Revolutionary War buffs. Located in the homeplace of the Seventh President of the United States, this park offers a variety of living history tours, cemeteries, and weapon demonstrations, as well as a full fledged museum. Get ready to have all of your Revolutionary War questions answered and then some. Or, if the only Andrew Jackson you care about is the front of a crisp twenty, this state park also boasts an 18-acre lake where you can enjoy fishing boat rentals and an afternoon of catch-and-release. The mile-long Garden of the Waxhaws Trail offers up a good variety of wildlife, but who would rather watch birds than adult men dolled up in Patriotic garb? It's a tough decision, we know.

Notable campgrounds

  • Lakeside Campground - Nestled by the tranquil waters, perfect for fishing and relaxation.
  • Forest Retreat Campground - Shaded by towering trees, offering a peaceful escape into nature.
  • Heritage Campground - Close to the park's historical attractions, ideal for history buffs.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, especially during peak seasons and weekends.
  • Check for cancellations regularly as plans change and spots may open up.
  • Consider visiting during the off-season for more availability and a quieter experience.
  • Explore nearby camping options if the park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Andrew Jackson State Park is from April 1 to October 31, when the park is open from 9am to 9pm, offering longer days for exploration. The off-season, from November 1 to March 31, promises fewer crowds but shorter park hours, from 8am to 6pm. Note the lake's water level may be lowered for maintenance, as advised.

Know before you go

  • Check the park advisory for any maintenance activities or area closures.
  • Admission fees are $3 for adults, with discounts for seniors and children.
  • Pets are welcome in most outdoor areas but must be leashed and well-behaved.
  • Remember, there is no wifi available, so plan your visit accordingly.
  • For museum and schoolhouse visits, check the specific hours of operation before your trip.
