“Clean NF Campground”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent 3 nights here in late June and surprisingly, the campground was only 50% full. Access to the town of Greer is very easy and there are hiking opportunities near the campground too. There are nice showers near the entrance and bathrooms throughout the various loops. All of the parking pads appear to be quite level and they are all gravel. Most of the sites have good shade which is nice when you need to be out of the sun, however if you rely on solar panels there are many sites that would have only a few hours of direct sun for charging.

There is a free dump station here along with a clean water source. The staff was friendly and most of the campers were quiet aside from a few that felt the need to run generators for a few hours at a time. Reservations are accepted and there are 2 loops set aside for walk ups.

Verizon cell service was very poor in the campground and we were able to go to the parking lot for the reservoir across from the campground to get a couple bars of LTE service.

“Nice, Convenient, and Noisy”

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.

Just Finding Our Way: Where To Now?

With the sneezes and sniffles in full bloom, we left Los Burros without a clear destination in mind. Thanks to Campendium, I knew of two potential boondock spots with more elevation, and some Forest...
