Yurt Island glamping is located at Southeast Outdoor Adventure Center (SOAC) in Bowman, SC.  SOAC is an outdoor gathering facility that hosts 6-8 outdoor races per year (such as trail runs, OCRs, Cross Fit competitions, mountain biking, etc).  SOAC is located less than 15 minutes from the I-95/I-26 interchange.

Yurt Island glamping is tucked away on 120 acres of SOAC property.  Once you have used the key pad to enter the property, follow the map and drive to Yurt Island parking, then walk ~150 feet onto the island where your glamping experience awaits.  The half acre island is surrounded by trees and a 15 ft wide body of water…don’t worry, it’s only 1-3 ft deep (depending upon the time of year).  

The glamping Yurt has a queen-size bed and other furnishings.  (If you have kids or other campers joining, please bring sleeping bags for additional people...bed sleeps two, maximum # of campers allowed in Yurt is 4.)  There is indoor lighting, but other electricity has been thoughtfully deleted…don’t stress about charging your phone, you’re here to enjoy nature and disconnect (Facebook and Instagram can wait a day or two)!  The exterior landscape lighting will enhance your relaxation and enjoyment of the peaceful “island” life around your campfire.  Starter firewood is provided, if you need more it can be found around SOAC. Bathrooms and showers are a short walk from the island.

To embrace the island life, heating and a/c are not a part of the glamping experience.  But, honestly, it is quite pleasant…with the exception of the dead of summer, which is when the heat can make the his & hers dipping pools a really refreshing hangout for Yurties.  During the hottest of hot weeks a fan is placed in the yurt. Be sure to bring your own linens (sheets, towels, pillows, etc.) or sleeping bags to satisfy your preferred level of comfort.  

Other campsites/RV sites are available if you have a group to accommodate, and you’ll have acres of nature in which to explore and recharge.   Come alive outside at SOAC!

My son and I had a ton of fun on Yurt Island and the surrounding property. He's already talking about going back with the rest of the family.

Clean facility with many little extras to make the experience easier.

This was by far one of our favorite - and one of the most unique - Hipcamp experiences we've had so far. Thanks to Alan for the maps, the extra flashlights and bug spray, and for answering our questions. The yurt and restrooms were clean, the yurt and area outside it were well lit, there was plenty of room for the kids to explore nearby, and the kids loved splashing around the tubs in the back. It was so nice to just bring our pillows, towels, and blankets and then have everything else we needed. By the time we left the kids were hugging "Yurtie" and didn't want to leave, and we had to promise them we will be back soon.

Such a great, quiet spot! Alan was really helpful, the Yurt was cozy, and the grill made it perfect. The view of the stars was amazing. I wanted to extend our stay. Would definitely recommend!

Yurt Island was by far one of our favorite camping experiences we have had so far. The yurt was spotless and cozy and the entire island made for a really fun night! After exploring Alan’s many acres it was nice to get in the tubs and relax. Alan is a great host. He was very helpful, attentive, and even left us 2 rosès to try! For the price I was expecting so much less and was beyond pleasantly surprised!

Yurt Island is a perfect getaway! Alan was wonderful about providing thorough directions, maps, and pictures for us to find the yurt in the dark; thoughtfully included flashlights, magazines, bug spray, grill tools, and firewood; and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We loved the dipping tubs and the chorus of insects/wildlife at night! We would love to stay again!

Our only regret is that we stayed here only one night. This place exceed our expectations. Choosen because of its location as a nice resting point on the last leg of of journey (close to I95), we were pleasently surprised with yurt island. Very secluded setting with lots of thoughtful touches. My husband enjoyed soaking in the tub and cooking on the kamado grill. Evetything you need for a very upgraded camping experience. Alan went above and beyond helping us when we had a small hiccup. We definitely hope to return in the future.

Yurt Island was a great experience. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. The yurt was very clean and even had a fan that was very useful. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a nature filled experience.

We had a great stay. The yurt was comfortable and we had all the amenities we needed. Alan had kindling already set up in the fire pit and plenty of wood. The bathroom and shower facilities were nice and clean. We had hoped to see the alligator; maybe next time.
