The smell of outdoor cooking will permeate the air at Calhoun Falls State Recreation Area in Calhoun Falls, South Carolina during the 5th South Carolina Campground Cookoff. The event is scheduled for September 20-22, 2013. Cook teams will compete for merchandise prizes in the categories of Main Dishes and Desserts. All dishes are required to be cooked over charcoal or wood. Sponsored by the Old 96 District Tourism Commission, the Cookoff brings attention to the outdoor recreational opportunities available in South Carolina’s Old 96 District and fills the state park with visitors.
The Campground Cookoff will have exciting activities for 2013! There will be a silent auction with lots of great travel packages with many vacation opportunities.
