We are less than 20 miles south of the capital. We are available for event camping, not individual camping. We have 2 parcels of land: Cooper's Farm and The Other Place. Bring your lawn chairs, tents and other camping gear. Our family has a farm and hunting and fishing property nearby. The most secluded area for camping would be the hunting property. It is approximately 125 acres in the woods. There are roads cut in by SCE&G. I recommend a truck for these roads. There is room for ATV, horse and dirt bike riding. The pond on this property is a work in progress. Recent repairs have it filling again. You can go skyclad on the hunting property in certain areas....be mindful of the other campers. The family farm, approximately 90 acres, has open fields for sky/star watching, easy access with your car. There is an old horse corral at the front of the property, with 5 acres fenced. We are rebuilding fences and adding amenities daily. Our property is approximately 15 minutes south of Columbia, SC (the capital of South Carolina). Gas stations, grocery stores are all convenient to these properties. If we really like you, we'll tell about our fishing property. Maybe even take you out in our boats.....Wink.

The vibe at Cooper's Farm & The Other Place
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is 100% boondock camping. If you are ok with that, as we were, than it's awesome! Very grateful for these prices durning the solar eclipse. It was the perfect viewing spot.
The hospitality was inspiring. The Cooper' s went above and beyond to exceed everyone's expectations, even though they described the location as primative camping, many campers were unprepared. Rose and her family, were an example of true southern hospitality by making even the unprepared comfortable.
Everyone was very nice and I don't feel they misrepresented anything, but I didn't realize how built up the area was. There were other houses and loud roads very close- not always a bad thing, but I'm not sure I would consider this "rural".
Shade until early afternoon, Rose and her gang were friendly and provided food for us while waiting for the eclipse! Compost toilet was a nice amenity for otherwise straightforward car camping. Not much else to do on the farm though, but it is a good place to crash for the night. There were ATVs but not sure who they belonged to.
The entire family made us feel very welcome. They roasted a pig, had a bonfire and offered breakfasts as well. They were really great. Would suggest improvement in bathroom facilities, other than that we really enjoyed the experience.
