Best Places to RV Camp in South Carolina

The state of South Carolina is an outstanding destination for an RV camping trip. What makes South Carolina so special? First, it is located far enough in the south that it can host your RV camping adventure just about any time of the year. Next, it spans from the Atlantic Coast, across the low country plains and into the Blue Ridge Mountains which provides a rich diversity of landscape and culture. Finally, it is home to great cities like Charleston, Columbia and Greenville as well as many small towns. These offer the RVer great opportunities to experience the southern charm of this great state. Here are some of the best places for RV camping in South Carolina.

    Barnyard campground in Lexington SC is not at Lake Murray as stated – it’s behind a busy flea market (open weekends only) off a busy street. While not the easiest to access it’s one of the few near Columbia and it is clean. Lake Murray is about 30 minute drive.

    We are from Oregon and stayed at this campground. It is truly an amazing place! They have activities for the kids, fishing in their pond, paddles boats, swimming pool, a playground and a beautiful family that runs it. If you haven’t been there yet, you should definitely make a reservation.
