I really enjoyed our time here camping. Lake Wateree State Park is a wonderful park to plan a trip to. There is something for everyone here like a nice forest trail, a nice play ground area, a dock with nice places to fish from the shore, seats to watch the boats go by. Even a nice little store for supplies and snacks. My family and I will be planning a trip back here soon. So many good memories and hopefully more to come.
Long sites and a friendly staff. We checked in on a Sunday and it was really quiet. (People next to us said weekend was a little loud. ) Because of a traffic jam on 26 we missed the afternoon at the park. We will have to come back here soon. Lots of fishing to be done but not enough time..
