Watch the sun and moon rise over the pond from the grassy knoll in the edge of the woods or under the trees. Enjoy paddling around the pond and watching the ducks and geese during the day and relaxing around the fire pit at night.

We offer 2 campsites on the pond on our private property. They are both slightly sloped. Site 1 is on the grassy knoll. It is sunny early in the day and gets shady as the day progresses. It is closer to the outhouse. Site 2 is under the trees and a little closer to the pond. It gets spotty sun throughout the day. We live through the woods past the campsites. Outhouse with composting toilet, potable water, picnic table, fire pit, firewood and trash bin provided. There is also a kayak and a small boat for both sites to share.

We had a wonderful time camping in our van on Dargan and her husband's beautiful property. It was well maintained with a cute pond and an accessible kayak, a well constructed fire pit with fire wood provided and a very clean and cute outhouse!
Lovely hosts!!

This experience was amazing! The grounds were well maintained, clean, the owners were very nice. My family needed a getaway that was safe, peaceful, and beautiful and Camping at the Pond was a perfect solution.
It's also only about 20 minutes from Congaree National Park which was a lot of fun to explore.

We absolutely loved camping on this site!! The sites are large with a good amount of space between them. The fire pit was perfect and I was glad that there was firewood available, too! We appreciated being able to use the canoe on site and easy access to potable water. I would definitely recommend staying here and just day tripping into Congaree. Dargan was so kind and friendly to work with and we can’t wait to come back!

Dargen and her husband have an awesome property that was perfect for what we wanted from an overnight camping trip. The sites they had were spaced out enough that you felt like you had enough privacy, and the amenities like the fire pit with grill attachment, the outhouse, the extension power cord and hose that you can even turn into a shower was really amazing. As hosts, they were super communicative, and we really liked that they came over to greet us right away, so we felt welcome right away. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Dargan's site is a true oasis of peace, its a wonderful spot by the pond. They've done everything to make sure you have what you need. The composting toilet is spotless. The fish, ducks and Piper the dog are a delight. Wonderful place close to Congaree.

Piper's pond was perfect. We drove down from outside Charlotte for a quick overnight camp. We stayed at campsite 1. The site was exactly as pictured. The outhouse was spotless. The property was beautiful and we were very comfortable. Would absolutely recommend!!

I had very high expectations for this spot after seeing the rating and reviews, and somehow I was still blown away. Took my 7 year old and she had the time of her life. We will will be coming back.

Great campsite! Peaceful along the pond with an open sky to stargaze. Amenities like water, electricity, and an awesome outhouse! We were also greeted by the lovely Piper, host’s Aussiedoodle, who is super friendly. Hosts were also great to chat with and get to know. Highly recommended staying here if you are in the area!
