Thanks in advance.
Where are you coming from? I live in Greenville, SC, about an hour and a half south of Charlotte. If you are heading to Myrtle Beach, you may want to look into staying a night at one of our beautiful state parks instead. If you're traveling during the week, it shouldn't be a problem getting last minute RV space. Check out Devil's Fork State Park in Salem, SC, Mile Creek Park, or South Cove County Park. Devil's Fork is our favorite, RV Space 38, 39, 41 are the best with beautiful water views. Lake Jocassee is the cleanest lake ever, clear to like 30-50 ft. But warning...you may not want to continue on to MB!
That lake is a kayaker's paradise...not a lot of boats, great swimming/fishing. If you don't gave kayaks, you can rent them from the little store around the corner from the entrance of the park. They'll even bring them and meet you at the boat ramp and then come back & pick them up at whatever time you agree upon.
All the above parks have 30 amp power, water, free dump station. The camp site is pretty darn big, with a large concrete pad for both picnic table & tent pad and a good size fire pit. We have a 31ft travel trailer and had more than enough room. Spaces are a good distance wide so great privacy. Tons of trees so you're completely shaded, easy on the AC. You're in the mountains, so cool breeze at night with the amazing scent of mountain laurel....love it!
