“Nice, Convenient, and Noisy”
Reviewed Jun 24, 2015
No boondocking is allowed in the Greer Recreation Area so your choices are one of two Forest Service Campgrounds if you want to be close to Greer. We decided on the large Rolf C Hoyer campground because they had free showers. They had two buildings with four very nice individual shower rooms in each building,centered in the employee loop near the campground entrance. With 100 campsites in the campground, the eight showers seemed minimal, but I never saw a lineup.
The campground has very nice crushed gravel roads and parking pads. Two loops (25 sites) are held back from the reservation system. The host working at the front entrance says they never run out of first-come, first-served sites. Even though it was a late June weekend when we visited, the campground was less than 30 percent full.
We’ve been spoiled and this campground reminded us why we prefer small, out-of-the-way places. The two families that selected sites near us decided to continue talking (and hollering) well past quiet time. At least they were having fun. In addition to the family noise, at least two of the loops are impacted by highway noise as well.
There is occasionally a bit of "teaser" cell reception that fades in and out - essentially unusable on Verizon or AT&T phones. One of the parking lots across the road at Greer Lakes could get a boostable signal resulting in 4 bars of Verizon 4G with the amplifier.
Sites are clean and many are well designed, but spacing is close enough that you'll likely get to know your neighbor.
