- Site Quality = 2/5
This is a primitve campground and the sites reflect that. Nothing fancy here, just dirt/forest-surface back-ins with picnic table and fire-pit. The sites vary quite a bit in size and level, but they’re are large, well-separated, nicely shaded and you can easily get the biggest rig in here.
- Facilities = 2/5
The only facilities here are vault toilets. The campground does have a day-use area (with large, grassy field) and direct access to over 30 miles of horse/bike/hike trails.
- Location = 4/5
Gotta give this place kudos for location. You’re just off Hwy 26, yet you feel like you’re in deep, secluded forest and you’re only a few miles from the small town of Whitmire,SC. It’s a primitive location with civilization not too far away.
- Pet Friendliness = 5/5
Another doggie haven. Lots of open space, hiking trails and little critters to chase.
Overall Rating = 3.25
BONUS ALERT = A secluded forest campground for only $5!
Summary: You really can’t get a much better deal than this! For $5/night you’re in a secluded and peaceful forest campground. It’s right off Hwy 26 and close to Whitmire, SC yet feels like it’s way out there. The campground is basic and primitive, nothing but forest ground and vault toilets here, but the surrounding area is lovely with over 30 miles of horse/bike/hike trails and lots of space for yourself and your furry friends. The campground attracts hunters and horse-men, so there’s plenty of room to fit big-rigs. This is a very basic campground, but it’s wonderfully peaceful. Great dry-camping spot and one to keep on the list!
Extra Info: Amazingly both Verizon datacard and AT&T phones worked. Primitive sites only (no hookups). $5/night. NO water or dump.
