The best camping near Cheraw State Park guide

Overview

About

What time is it? Tee time! Nature loving golfers will relish the chance to meander through picturesque pine forest and along the bank of Lake Juniper as they enjoy Cheraw State Park’s challenging 18-hole golf course. Red-cockaded woodpeckers are the only spectators you’ll find at Cheraw. Paddle a kayak or canoe across the lake to enjoy the bright green hues of Cheraw’s dense pine forest, or cast your line off the boat in hopes of a hungry catfish. Cheraw State Park is the perfect mix of still-water serenity, undisturbed forest, and manicured links. Finish off the day with a hike or bike ride through the never-ending trails, a jump in Lake Juniper’s clear waters, or a horse-back ride through the woods, and you’ll be calling this state park a hole in one.

Notable campgrounds

  • Lakefront Campsites: Enjoy the tranquility of Lake Juniper with 17 campsites offering stunning water views and easy access to fishing.
  • Boat-in Camping Area: For a unique experience, venture to one of the two boat-in campsites, accessible only by water for a true nature immersion.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially for peak seasons, to ensure you secure a spot at this popular park's limited campsites.
  • Consider weekday camping for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Keep an eye on cancellations by checking the reservation system regularly.
  • Explore nearby camping options if Cheraw State Park is fully booked, to still enjoy the area's natural beauty.

When to go

The best time to visit Cheraw State Park is during spring or fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its most vibrant. Summer offers longer daylight hours for activities, but be prepared for heat. Winters are quieter but have reduced services and shorter days.

Know before you go

  • Check the park advisory for any restrictions, such as personal golf cart usage and golf course availability during tournaments.
  • Pets are welcome in most outdoor areas, but must be leashed and well-behaved.
  • Free admission makes it easy to enjoy the park, but some activities may have fees.
  • wifi is available, so you can stay connected even while enjoying the great outdoors.
