Taw Caw Campground & Marina
Reviewed February 20, 2014

First time we stayed here on the way South. Jimmy was very helpful and stayed on the phone for the last 4 miles of our journey so we didn't get lost. It's a shame there are no pull throughs besides the pole. A nice find at the end of a long cold day of travel.
great scenery, outstanding TV picture. Rest rooms need so work but overall a good experience.

We enjoyed a quiet camp by the lake, but when a rain shower prevailed, we were quickly moved to a modern clean room for showers and a comfy bed by the helpful staff. The next morning, Hot coffee and good conversation about the historical area were enjoyed on the deck while our camping things tumbled in the dryer. We left with a great respect for SC folks.

We just spent the weekend camping at Taw Caw and will have to say it by far was a great weekend with the kids and friends. We are already planning our next trip there. The employees were great. This is a great place to take the kids and let them go exploring and meet some great people there next door while camping. Rhonda, Jimmy and tge rest of the staff thanks for a great trip see ya soon. Oh and see ya soon Dodger.

We stumbled on this place 8+ years ago, and I just cannot put into words what this place has meant to us. Miss Rhonda and Mr. Mike are now great friends of ours and superstars in the eyes of our children. We have gone out of our way to stop at Taw Caw over the years and we have stayed in the motel (very clean and comfortable), the double-wide home (spacious and great for longer stays with the full kitchen and all), and our last stay was in the single-wide home (perfect for us!). The staff (Hello, Jodi and Jimmy!) at Taw Caw is over-the-top courteous and the hospitality at this little slice of heaven is not only delightful, it's downright genuine!! I'd say it's about 10-12 minutes off of I-95 and it's sooooo much better than just another interstate exit hotel. Heck, you could be just like us and make some dear friends with the proprietors, staff and other guests and end up going there time and time again. Bottom line: RV'ers, campers, motel and/or lakeside home renters, try this place and you will be hooked!!

While the grounds and rooms are suitable and clean and we had no issues with that, we were definitely harrassed by management during our entire stay this past weekend. While I enjoyed the location and had an enjoyable time I will most likely not return.

Bryan S. - I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with our establishment. I have searched my reservation book and do not show a reservation for Bryan S. anywhere in my books. However, I would like to respond to your comments with the following: The only, and absolute only time we would ever contact a guest is 1) in case of emergency; 2) to provide linens/supplies; 3) if guidelines and policies were not being followed and/or disturbing other guests. It is our mission to provide ALL of our guests with a tranquil, comfortable and peaceful place to come relax and enjoy their time away from home. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with privacy and anonymity during their stay, as this is a vacation place where people come to get away from stress. Thank you for taking time to comment. We continually strive to make Taw Caw a warm and hospitable place for all of our guests - new and returning customers alike.

Staff is friendly during reservations and check-in but neglected to inform us of no sewer connections. The bath house was terrible! Peeling paint and mold - Badly in need of a makeover! We have a 35 ft TT that they wedged us into a corner spot and blocked us in with another large motor home literally in front of us. We could not leave if we had too - without asking our neighbor to pull out first. I called to ask about fire rings and was told - yes they have them....well - our spot did not! The internet did not work the entire weekend. The "beautiful beach" is in the middle of the marina and boats/jetskis were running through swimmers! There was a bad ant problem outside and they found their way into our trailer and bunk beds - we wanted to leave early but could not as we would have disturbed the neighbors. NOT ACCEPTABLE at $40 per night. Other nicer campgrounds in the area were $25 to $28.

I am sorry you found our campground to be unacceptable. It appears you visited us on a holiday weekend, which is an extremely busy time for us with limited space. We would have been happy to provide you a sewer site if one had been requested, as we have several throughout the campground.

We take great care in ensuring our bathhouses are clean. You are correct – the paint sometimes does peel, as we are continuously cleaning with bleach throughout the year, which tends to eventually wear away paint, but because they are bleached and cleaned daily, and sometimes multiple times daily, mold is not an issue. Our winter months are spent updating/upgrading and doing annual maintenance from the busy summer months.

Sometimes the internet does get bogged down. Although we request that guests refrain from downloading movies or games, they don’t always honor our request. And again, on a holiday the internet is at it’s maximum capacity. We are in the process of upgrading the internet so that this isn’t an issue in the future.

Ants are very difficult to control, although I have a monthly pest service, we cannot prevent pests 100%. At the beginning of our season this past spring, we did request a few extra treatments and have been able to eliminate any ant problems.

As far as rates, our normal everyday rate is $35 per night, which includes all taxes and fees for up to 4 people. The holiday rate is $5 extra per night, which would be $40 per night only for the holiday dates. We try to keep our rates competitive and affordable for all. Thank you for taking time to comment. We continually strive to make Taw Caw a warm and hospitable place for all of our guests. Your feedback is appreciated, and provides us an opportunity to address any concerns.
