Boy what a great time time we had at the lake! Idyllic setting, perfect weather, and the most hospitable host we could ask for. What a beautiful area of lake Murray! Thank you, Bingo! We will be back when able!

We absolutely loved our time at Larry’s Island Paradise! The good vibes started from the moment we booked this site on Hipcamp. He was super communicative and gave us clear directions. He met us upon arrival and offered his help getting us settled. The property itself is stunning. The sounds of the water and the birds are the perfect soundtrack for a relaxing time.

Getting to know Mr. Bingo was truly half the experience!! He’s a special one :) thank you again!!

Island Paradise is exactly as described - a piece of heaven on the shore of Lake Murray, right on the water with the most amazing sunset views. Larry "Mr. Bingo" is a fantastic host. Larry made sure we knew the best way to pull in and park our camper, and had extra cinder blocks available to help level it - he even offered to help!

There is water and 30 amp power, perfect for our needs. The fire pit was cleaned out, and firewood was already stocked for us when we arrived. Larry has a dock with a table/chairs/umbrella, and is set up for fishing - just bring your tackle and bait. We caught catfish, bluegill, and perch. He also offered the use of a kayak and floats.

Larry checked in with us before he would leave to see if we needed anything when he went into town - we didn't take him up on it, but it was appreciated that he took the time to do that.

If you have a camper that automatically levels, you won't be concerned about the spot not being level. If you don't, just be aware that your normal leveling system may not be enough, and you may have to either jack up the camper and put blocks underneath or get creative with the cinderblocks. We also used the cinderblocks to build an extra step for the camper.

We absolutely loved Island Paradise, and are already planning another trip back. Thank you, Larry, for sharing it with us. We loved hearing about the history, and enjoyed talking with you very much. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Great to have power and water. Was more uneven ground then I would have liked. Thanks for the free wood, much appreciated.

My suggestion: Go here in the hot summer time! It was cold and windy this time of year. Check the weather. Otherwise, it was beautiful!

The landowner Larry (Mr. Bingo) came to chat for a bit and show us around. He was friendly and helpful. He gave us plenty of firewood. He was super nice!

* Bathroom available? In Larry's house.

* Camper parking was a bit tight. If you are good at parking a camper, you should be fine.

Best view ever !

First of all, this is one of the most beautiful views on Lake Murray. Faces the west so you get the beautiful sunsets. Larry is an excellent host. He’s very welcoming and cares about his guests. He has a great power and water hookup, hammock, fire pit, has extra concrete blocks if you need a little extra help in leveling your camper. Larry even provides firewood if you need extra. He is very polite, great personality, very helpful, and once you get checked in he gives you your space and checks in by text from time to time to see if you need anything. Yes, your in a neighborhood but there is good distance between neighbors and i never saw any of them. It actually feels secluded. Also, I work remotely so good WiFi is paramount, especially since I stayed from Sunday to Friday. His WiFi was sufficient for my needs. I’ll definitely be going back.

Our experience was absolutely great. Larry was a kind and very attentive host and treated us with over the top hospitality. The location isn’t far from town, the views were fabulous and we caught a huge bass off of the dock. Watching ospreys fish was quite a treat as well.

I'm so happy y'all enjoyed your stay with me Hannah. It's a shame Dustin wasn't able to catch a few more nice bass so call could have had some fresh bass for supper --- lol !!! Hopefully next time the fishing will be a lot better and all of y'all will be able to catch a few. Our welcome mat is always out and I will make sure to leave the light on for y'all !!! I look forward Hannah you all returning very soon. God bless y'all m'lady. I remain as always, Respectfully, Larry aka Mr Bingo

What a beautiful spot! We were in SC for our daughter’s team to play at Newberry and chose this spot for the night. I’m so glad we did! The view can’t be beat and you are literally right on the water. We loved sitting by the fire listening to music into the night! Larry was so kind and we hope we can plan a longer trip as it gets warmer!
