Great remote, primitive campsite right beside a river. This campsite is perfect for someone looking for a cheap, quiet camping expereince with not too many ammenities. A 5 minute walk down a gravel road leads you to several campsites so it is not completly drive in but you do not need to backpack your gear in. All the tentsites are first-come first -serve and there are only a few so get there early.

One of our favorite campgrounds in South Carolina! Burrells Ford Campground is along the Chattooga River, which is a Wild and Scenic River. The river is popular with fly fishermen and white-water boaters. The Chattooga River Trail is a 15.5 mile hiking trail along the river with multiple waterfalls. Kings Creek Falls is just minutes from the campground.

The campground has an abundance of campsites that are maintained by the Forest Service. The majority of sites offer privacy and are great for groups. The campground is a short hike from the parking area, which deters extravagant car campers, but is still convenient. There are fire rings, picnic tables, bear-bag hangers, and an outhouse. Best of all - it is free!
