    Sand Hills State Forest has seven numbered camp sites. Five of the sites have shelters. Sites with shelters are $15 and without are $10. There are a few vault toilets in the park, but that's the extent of comforts. There is no electric or water hook ups and no dump station. There is peace and quiet with lots of nature to watch. There is a fishing lake (requires SC fishing license) boats are allowed but no gas engines. There is Sugarloaf Mountain you can get a great view from the top (must use stepped path). There is also nature trails and Horseshoe Mountain, but we didn't have time to hike those. After hiking to the other side of the lake and up Sugarloaf we came back through the equine area and around the other side of the lake. Coming around the other side was a lot of bush whacking. We encountered a cottonmouth as we crossed a beaver dam, I got a stick about six feet long and nudged it down into the water and we continued on. Shortly after the dam we scared up a whitetail deer. Nature provided a few hickory limbs lying around that gave our burgers a great taste.

    BTW, we got the same site this Fall and the DW will be on her first camping trip without hookups. Bringing the inverter generator just in case and to give her an added level of comfort.
