“Great campground with partial hook-ups, lots of trees, trails and a pond. But getting here and getting into your space is a little hairy for big-rigs.”

Overall Rating

It’s never a good thing when I’m apologizing and wondering what I’d gotten us into as we drove the narrow, windy road to Poinsett State Park. The road eventually narrowed to one-way (without any traffic control) so do your best to time your trip in/out of the park to avoid vehicles going the opposite direction. The road itself was paved, although in poor repair, until you got close to the campground entrance and then it changed to a rutted dirt road. It could be that the condition was a result of damage from Hurricane Matthew, but some of the interior roads were so rutted we avoided them altogether.

One we made it into our space, we were quite happy. While size varies, overall the sites are very spacious and level with lots of trees and vegetation between some of the sites for privacy. Some sites have water and 30amp electric, others have water only, and some have no hoop-ups. There are showers, bathrooms and a dump station. The campground did not have any staff on-site, but our space was reserved with our name on it. The park office is about a ½ mile from the campground if you need assistance.

We originally chose Poinsett for the mountain bike/hiking trails, unfortunately all the trails were still closed for repair compliments of Hurricane Matthew. Park staff and volunteers were working on getting everything opened back up by 11/5/16. There is a large picnic area and a small fishing lake adjacent to the park office where they rent paddle boats, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards.

The park is driving distance to Congaree National Park (about an hour away) and we visited there one day to hike and another to kayak Cedar Creek.

We had 2 bars of Verizon 4G unboosted and 3-4 bars of 4G with the booster.
