We were passing through SC last October and decided to pull over for the night into something other than a truck stop. Found this great campground in a town called Modoc, it's an Army Corps of Engineers spot on Strom Thurmond lake. Now being a Yankee, outside of the Cape Cod Canal, Army Corps developments are a bit of a mystery to me. This camp ground was a rare find indeed. They put us on a site right on the lake, $22 a night. Half that if you find yourself in the golden era of senior citizenship. (I'll pay the extra eleven-bucks for another 10 years, no need to rush things)
Everything was high quality from the grill and fire pit to electric and water hook ups. Very clean and personable staff. Only thing lacking was a sanitary hook up at the site, you'll need to use the dump station at the entrance. Small price to pay in exchange for water front real estate.
They can be found at:
