3 Creeks Camp and Nature Preserve

14 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents10 acres · Anderson, SC
This Property was purchased by Grandfather in the 70s  and then was passed to my Mother. In 2013 I decided to live life differently and start from the ground up building with natural materials and found materials. At that time I was fortunate enough to have the land passed to me and I started building a home for myself and to be close to my mothers home nearby. After achieving the basics I decided that the best use of this beautiful land was to create a place for people to relax and enjoy, a park like environment dedicated to preserving natural beauty and amplifying it through a permaculture lifestyle. 8 years later I am blown away at how far the dream has become a reality and love sharing my space with people from all over the country.

Prices Bridge Inn & Campgrounds

7 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. :-)

Serenity on the Saluda

2 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Honea Path, SC
Just a small piece of God's creation right on the Saluda River. Come and enjoy the solitude and serenity of this spot on the Saluda River, surrounded by thousands of acres of forests and farms. Camp on the river, in the field or overlook the river from the high bluff in the old growth forest.  The gravel road going down to the river is finished, I drive my Honda Civic down daily and no issues (very low clearance). Kayaking from Holiday Dam to the camp site is incredible. The trip takes about 3.5 hours with lots of shoals and rapids. You can also kayak or tube from the camp site to Erwin Mill bridge in a little over an hour. This is more of a river float with just a couple rapids, but equally as beautiful.

The best camping near Lake Greenwood State Park guide

Overview

About

The 11,400-acre reservoir is the main draw of Lake Greenwood State Park, a placid waterfront retreat in the heart of South Carolina’s Piedmont region. Embark on thrilling boating adventures (two boat ramps provide access) to Lake Greenwood’s sparkling waters filled with largemouth bass, bream, black crappie, stripers, perch, channel catfish, and more. Or spend your days exploring the lovely trails, have lunch at one of the picnic shelters next to the lake, and then go camping under the starry skies. Many of the campsites (for both tents and RVs) actually sit right on the shore.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for privacy: Diana’s Loop offers one RV site in a private, wooded area.
  • Best for paddlers: Big Creek RV Park has several sites with waterfront access.
  • Best for boaters: Eagles Landing has a private beach and boat ramp.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve the park's 125 campsites in advance via the South Carolina State Parks website. Reservations are available all year round.
  2. Most campsite reservations require at least a 2-night stay, and some locations and dates may require longer stays. 
  3. Reservations open 13 months in advance. Reservations requested less than one day before check-in must be made directly through the park.
  4. Campsites can book up as fast, especially on summer and holiday weekends. So book your campsite as early as possible to ensure availability.

When to go

Roaring River State Park welcomes visitors year-round. However, the optimal times to visit the region are during the warm spring weather and longer days (or September to October) or early fall due to mild temperatures and the stunning foliage (March to October). Fishing is enjoyable during all four seasons at Lake Greenwood State Park. Still, summer draws the most visitors as the swimming pool is open and colorful wildflowers adorn the riverbanks.

Know before you go

  • Lake Greenwood State Park has an admission fee for day-use visitors, while camping fees apply separately.
  • Park amenities include picnic shelters, playgrounds, and a swimming area for additional recreational opportunities.
  • Check-in time for camping is 2pm, and check out is at noon.
  • Between April 1 and August 31, campers can stay a maximum of 14 nights at Lake Greenwood. After the 14th night, they must vacate the park for seven consecutive nights before returning.
