    We were at Table Rock State Park, SC from 30 June till 4 July 2012. This park was fantastic. Almost all of the sites were private with lots of trees. We stayed in site 44 on Loop A and was surprised at how big it was. This site is not totally even, so leveling is a must. The site was big enough for 3 or 4 PUPs. The bathrooms are nice and always seemed clean. Loop A is for tents, pups and small TTs since the road is sorta treacherous. There is a very deep layer of gravel in the sites and the roads are paved.

    You do have to drive to the fun. The hiking trails, nature center and swimming lake are about a mile and a half from the camp site.
    The country store is open Wed thru Sat, but they may open it on Tuesdays if there are alot of campers. The visitors center is open daily. Swimming is Tues thru Sunday 11 till 5. If they hear thunder they kick everyone out until 30 minutes after last thunder.

    To read about all our fun, go to Before and After my trip.

    Some things I forgot to mention:
    There was no problems with mosquito's, never had to put on repellent. The horse flies were being bugs. At night, fire flies were fun to watch. The ants are huge and tried to get into everything. The rangers were stressing bears, we never saw one. During pack up we found a small scorpion under the trailer tongue, never thought there were scorpions in SC.
    While we did hear raccoon's fighting, we never saw them. We kept a clean camp, can't say the same for a few families in tents. Each morning their trash and food was spread all over.

    When entering the park from HWY 11, you need to enter through the West Gate (name is on sign). We messed up and went to the first entry and had to turn around. The road through the first entry is tight and you wouldn't make it while towing. Once you are unhooked and set up, go back to the first entry, it is a beautiful drive.

    The closest gas station is about 5 miles. When you leave the park, turn left on HWY 11 and go straight, you will see it on the right hand side. If you need grocery store, fast food or hardware...turn right on HWY 11 and follow the signs to Pickens. This town has everything you might need.

    We noticed Table Rock was a PUP haven. We saw at least 20 PUPs of different variety.

    We were there almost the time you were. We arrived that Saturday and left the following Friday, July 6th. It is a great place to camp. We didn't see any bears either. We weren't the tent campers though :) We had a popup.
