Ahoy there mateys, are you looking for great fishing, boating, and swimming in one of South Carolina’s most scenic lakes? You’ll find recreational opportunities on and off the water at Lake Wataree State Park. The modern campground offers private, wooded sites, and if you’re lucky enough to snag a waterfront site, be prepared for one of the most amazing sunsets ever. If not, you can still head down to the beach to watch the action, just be sure to wear bug spray in the evenings. South Carolina mosquitoes are huge and hungry, just like the fish.

Great campground, great boating and fishing but only one or two campsites where you can beach boat at your site.

Great campground! Some of the kindest people I have ever met. We were here for 3.5 months. You must book in advance in the warmer months to get a spot for the weekends, they go fast.
