One of the great pleasures of traveling in an RV is the freedom to get up and go anytime, anywhere. In South Carolina, you’ll find RV parks in every corner of the state, providing easy access to the best attractions and most popular vacation destinations.

There are RV campgrounds and resorts overlooking the ocean, at the foothills of the mountains, by lakes, alongside rivers, near hunting preserves, horse trails and off-road riding parks. Some offer amenities like pools, fishing piers, playgrounds, water parks and miniature golf.

Want to stay near a major highway? No problem. A number of South Carolina RV parks are conveniently located off the interstate. Looking for quiet and solitude? There’s a spot for that, too. With more than 100 motor home campgrounds crisscrossing the Palmetto State, you’ve got plenty of options, whatever your camping preference.

Ready to go exploring? Here are 10 great RV parks you’ll be happy to call your home away from home:

1. Travelers Rest/N. Greenville KOA

Tucked in a hollow at the edge of the mountains, this family-owned campground offers three dozen RV sites alongside Johnson Creek. It’s just seven miles to downtown Travelers Rest and the popular Swamp Rabbit Trail. Four state parks—Jones Gap, Caesars Head, Table Rock and Paris Mountain—are within 25 miles.

2. Solitude Pointe

The name describes the big draw here. Surrounded by woodlands, this small foothills campground offers a peaceful setting to get away from it all. Hikers will enjoy its convenient location just five miles from Table Rock and Caesars Head state parks. The 12-acre property also features a private fishing dock on the Saluda River.

3. Palmetto Shores RV Resort

The gated 32-acre park on Lake Marion offers three pools and a lazy river, a fishing pier, boat ramp, boat slips for day use, a sandy beach and the lakefront Fish Market & Grill restaurant on-site. All 119 RV sites feature full hook-ups and 50/30 amp electrical service. Most are pull-thru, accommodating big rigs, motor homes, travel trailers and campers.

4. Carolina Adventure World

This is the place to stay if you’re into ATV, UTV and dirt bike riding. Located in the rolling hills of the Piedmont, the 2,600-acre park features 100 miles of off-road trails, several raceways, a rock crawl and two mud bogs. Rentals are available if you’re not traveling with your own big-wheeled vehicle. Other amenities include horseback riding trails and a disc golf course.

5. Broxton Bridge Plantation

Hunters and horseback riders will love this 7,000-acre retreat in Ehrhardt. The campground includes 130 RV sites, corrals and 58 miles of trails. Hunting opportunities on the property include deer, wild hogs, duck, pheasants and bobwhite quail. Other amenities include sporting clays, a pistol and rifle range, bass fishing and tours of two on-site Civil War battlegrounds.

6. Pointe South/Yemassee KOA

Winner of the 2015 KOA Campground of the Year Award, this unique park features walking trails, a fishing lake and the Swimming Mermaid Coffee House & Wine Bar offering locally roasted gourmet coffees and nightly wine tastings from six regional wineries. Cabin accommodations include a real Louisville and Nashville Railroad caboose.

7. Camp Lake Jasper

Just minutes from Interstate 95 at the gateway to Hilton Head Island, the scenic Hardeeville campground overlooks a lake with a fishing dock, grilling area, picnic tables and pool. Next door is the 321-acre Sergeant Jasper Park, featuring an 18-hole disc golf course, nature trails and kayak rentals. And, of course, you’ll be close to Hilton Head Island’s world-renowned beaches and golf courses.

8. Ocean Lakes Family Campground

The largest oceanfront campground in Myrtle Beach, the 310-acre resort offers countless amenities, including a mile of seashore, miniature golf, a game center, shuffleboard, basketball and beach volleyball courts and a pool and water park with a four-lane mat racer, tube slide, lazy river and kids’ splash zone.

9. Eastatoee River RV Park

Nestled in the beautiful Eastatoee Valley about 22 miles north of Lake Keowee in Sunset, this small family RV park sits at the edge of the Jocassee Gorges and features just 10 sites—seven of them along the Eastatoe River. Enjoy trout fishing or tubing on the creek with a fantastic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

10. Mount Pleasant/Charleston KOA

Experience the beauty of the Carolina Lowcountry on this 377-acre antebellum plantation. During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to walk a 1.5-mile nature trail, take a free wagon ride tour of the property, rent a boat and fish in a scenic 30-acre lake. Best of all, you’re just a short drive from historic Charleston.
