This location was perfect for those looking to explore trails and open
land. The farm was full of spots to see and places to pitch a tent.
There’s an element of isolation present along the creek, and the wide
open views along the lake provide for a peaceful evening. Alex was an
extremely knowledgable and caring host, who gave me a tour of the area
upon arrival. I would definitely suggest this spot to those seeking a
primitive camping location in the backwoods of South Carolina.
My husband and I stayed at Lakeside Camp to watch the 2017 eclipse. Alex's large property was hopping, with lots of folks in for the occasion. Despite the busyness, Alex was attentive and accommodating.
The site itself is lovely, overlooking the water as in the pictures here. Be warned that there is a bit of a grade to the spot, but we had no problem finding a suitable spot for our tent. It's not the most hammock-friendly spot, if that's your thing, though there is a pretty spot right on the water's edge that worked nicely.
We were very content at Alex's lakeside camp, and would gladly recommend it to anyone who finds themselves out his way.
Beautiful, primitive camping next to the lake. Easy access to firewood. Definitely recommend bringing a kayak or a canoe! Alex, the host, was friendly and hospitable, and he gave us a tour of the whole place!
Alex was more than accommodating for us. He had the area freshly mowed and then even dropped off a kayak and a canoe in our area. Where we were, beside the lake, was down a long drive through a field and then onward through the woods before coming right up to the site. It's a bit bumpy, but we took a Miata and a Civic on it, in the rain, with no issue. Just take it slow. Alex also guides you in upon arrival, so don't be concerned about getting lost.
Loved the site and had a great experience overall! Highly recommend.
This was a gorgeous property and Alex was an amazing host. He answered my many questions, gave us a small tour around the area, and gave us some tips on the best spots to fish. We did make use of the Kayaks and had a blast scooting around the lake. Apart from the occasional bit of traffic, it was very peaceful. We even got to see a Belted kingfisher hunting the waters with us.
At night we heard a whole zoo worth of wildlife - coyotes, owls, bugs, birds. Something came snuffling around the campsite at some point, though Im not sure what. Both my fiance and I wished we could have stayed longer and would love to visit again. The pictures do not do this place justice - the quiet, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the wildlife!
Magical camp clatworthy
Our campsite had an amazing view of the lake with tranquil settings. Alex was very accommodating to our need,s. He made sure we were happy with our campsite, offered us a kayak, took us on a guided tour of the property highlighting all the magical features his land had to offer.
Overall we give Camp Clatworthy a 5 star rating and would highly suggest giving it a try!
Peaceful lake site
Alex was a great host and his property and camp site are beautiful! Plenty of area to explore around the camp site as well as a really cool river trail Alex showed us. This site had a beautiful elevated view of the lake and faced east so nice morning sun to warm you up! We will certainly be back.
