Camping at Calhoun Falls State Park, located in South Carolina's Abbeville County, has been a well-kept secret -- up until now, that is. This small state park, which is just over 300 acres, has 86 campsites; some are designed for RVs, while others are designed for throwing up a tent. No matter which option you choose, the state park is heavily wooded, which leads to a feeling of seclusion while camping. Electricity is available at all campsites, and while sewage hookup isn't readily available, there are bathroom facilities located on both ends of the campground. A dump site for RV camping is available by the entrance of the park. The price per night of the campsites ranges from $23 to $27.
If you're looking to go camping somewhere scenic, look no further! Calhoun Falls's campground is located on the beautiful Lake Russell. Most of the campsites are situated lakefront, too. Unlike some campgrounds, swimming is permitted in the lake. If swimming isn't your thing, though, no worries. You can also go fishing or launch a kayak or canoe; you can rent either at the state park's headquarters. There's certain to be plenty of shade available at your campsite, but you'll want to bring along fresh water to cool off. None is provided for you.
What would camping be without your favfurite pooch? Fido can join you while you go camping. They'll need to be on a leash, and it must be no longer than six feet. You might be asked to provide proof that your pup is up-to-date on vaccinations, as well. Campground staff reserves the right to ask for your dog to be removed if they harass other campers or wildlife. Waste bags aren't provided for you, either, and since it's your responsibility to clean up after Fifi, you'll want to bring some.
The campgrounds at Calhoun Falls State Park provide plenty of fun for you and your dog, whether you're out on the lake or roasting marshmallows on the campfire!
