I really enjoyed my family's stay at Natural Gathering Grounds! The lakes nearby are only for boating, swimming is only allowed in the river that is maybe a mile walk! The path is well maintained, and there are benches and shaded areas if you need a break! The owners were nice and offered a ride a couple of times, which was much appreciated! The bathouse was super clean, and cute.
There were even a few tree swings around which my son loved playing on!
They had goats roaming around that were super cute!

Overall would definitely stay again, though make sure you take most of what you need, the closest store is kinda far!

Camping @ Natural Gathering GroundsThey had a few farm animals like goats, chickens and peacocks/ peahens!

Definitely the best campground in this area. Campsites are clean, bathrooms and showers are clean the ground keepers are super nice.
Enjoyed the walk down to the beach.
We’ll be back for sure.

We enjoyed camping at site 2 which was close to the woods. The river was a nice relaxation once you get there (it’s a long walk, but worth it once you get there per my husband as I rode up in the golf cart.) my four year old enjoyed playing with the other kids. The only downside that I found was that the showers do not hold hot water well (it would be hot then go straight to cold). My four year old also enjoyed feeding and petting the donkey they have on the land. I would definitely come again.

Great little spot. Spots are first come first serve. Lots of shaded spots which is great in this SC heat! Bathhouse was clean. The walk to the river is almost a mile so make sure you bring a wagon, golf cart or other solution. However, the hosts were wonderful and gave us a ride if they were going down in their golf cart. Very hospitable! Would stay again.
