This campground is on a peninsula that juts out into beautiful Lake Keowee. All campsites have a water view and many are on the lakeshore. There is a nice little general store on site, Several playgrounds and beach areas for easy access into the lake.

Clean lake not too far from downtown and shopping Reasonable entry fees, Helpful staff. Play area for children and plenty of spaces for motor homes but I advise pre-rental.

Beautiful park with a beach, boat ramp, and shelters. They had fishing poles to check out for my 9 y/o son which was a great amenity. The staff gave us suggestions for hikes in the area - we did Yellow Branch Falls -
