Camping in South Carolina (SC) can be a diverse experience with the sandy beaches and islands in the east to the Upstate and foothills in the west.
Eastern South Carolina camping is all about the coast with the grand strand providing beautiful beaches for coastal camping. Find one of the many campgrounds located right on the coast and reserve an RV or camper site, or just put up a tent and enjoy the views of the Atlantic Ocean. The coastal plain offers plenty of camping and recreation opportunities as well with rivers, marshes, and swamplands. Francis Marion National Forest, just north of Charleston, provides camping in its vast wilderness with campsites near pristine coastal streams.
Head into Western South Carolina and camp in the scenic Piedmont region near rolling hills and under a thick tree canopy. Upstate camping brings you to the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains where campers can find secluded, quiet campsites. Sumter National Forest is located mid-state where there are plenty of wilderness and family-friendly campsites available, and campers can hike to the 22 waterfalls in the area. Check out camping in cities like Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville too!
