Come on out to the country !   Due West is located in Abbeville County,  SC approximately 100 miles Northwest of North, SC and is the home of Erskine College.  There are NO traffic lights here, and only a few STOP signs.   Once you get to town, you'll still be out in the country !    In these parts, visiting Dollar General is called  "Going to the Mall".  

Drive (or hike) through the pasture down to Chickasaw creek.  Close the gate behind you and be cut off from the world for a while.   Pitch your tent (or pop up your camper) and listen to the creek gurgle.   Build a campfire.  Gaze up at the stars and sing - or just be silent and watch the wildlife. 

The single campsite will be all yours - we only do one booking at a time.  (There is plenty of space for multiple tents if you want to bring friends)  You'll be on 90 acres, at the opposite corner from my home.  From this campsite, there's only one electric light visible - over on the neighbor's property.

Mike is a gracious host. He offered us firewood and water before escorting us through the fields to the site. The barbed wire gate is difficult to open and close. The site is private and comfortable by the small creek that we drove to and parked. There was a cell phone signal which made my daughter happy. There are many fire ant mounds that I found the first night. It is a relaxing spot.

We still have 1 more night here but are so happy with the spot. It's very private and we have had a wonderful time. Our kids are loving the creek. Of course it's very primitive with no power or bathrooms. We can get water from a well house but it's a good little drive. I would call the drive to get here rough. Not for a truck but my van struggled. BUT it's a great place and we'll be back for sure. Owner very nice and helpful. Never seen such a dark night with so many stars.
