Lakefront North Georgia and Western South Carolina

Nobody has mentioned the Corp of Engineers Campgrounds. They are my very favorite places to stay! With a Senior Access pass they are half price (must be 62+). Look at the website and review the lakefront sites. Usually water and electric with dump stations.

I love this forum and owe a lot to your advice so 2 tips from me. Target carries foam kneeling pad in baby dept (to give your children baths in the bathtub). This is great for looking underneath your RV, dumping tanks etc. Also, I bought a food vacuum sealing machine (Amazon). More food prepared at home, more space in my freezer, good campground food and less time cooking. Thank you all for all the help you've given me!

This past October, we had a great time at Colonial Williamsburg, VA. Spent four days there (1 day at Jamestown Colony) with our three teenagers. Couldn't get them to leave. They really got into it. In the event you are retired military, I highly recommend the RV campground at Naval Supply Center, Cheatham Annex just 10 minutes from Williamsburg. Having stayed at many military campgrounds across this land, I rate this as #1. It just opened in late 2014 or early 2015 and represents a mighty fine bit of political maneuvering by some Virginia Congressman! Concrete pads, full hookups, manicured lawns, half-surrounded by water etc.

At Myrtle Beach....Ocean Lakes is opening a new 5 million dollar water park this summer and my understanding the summer is already pretty much booked. But more than likely most of the campgrounds at the beach are close to being booked for the summer already. We like Fall there the best Halloween is such great fun........

Soring & Summer Trip

If you are going to Pigeon Forge we stay at The Plantation RV Resort in Sevierville. The park is outstanding and well maintained with full hook up pull through sites. We love it there. Cost was $34 with two piols and a lazy river. Dog friendly and a full laundry.

As for Myrtle Beach, I have camped here for years and have hit all of them except the State Park which appears to be nice too. Recently have been staying at Ocean Lakes and in fact have my TT stored there for the winter. Actually just retired and moved to Myrtle Beach the week of Christmas. Loving' the weather although a little chilly today. Better than 1 degree in northern WV.
I will second the KOA in Cherokee. It on the NC side of the National Park and has an off-leash dog area and a dog island! It has sites that are directly on the river. The campground has both an indoor and outdoor pool. We stayed there for 5 days a few years back and our site was on the river and pretty spacious.

If you are looking for waterfalls - Devils Fork State Park in SC is great. Water & Electric only but there are numerous waterfalls all within a quick drive from the park. Most require a short hike - but not too difficult. Campsites all wooded and really a nice park. It is on Lake Jocassee and plenty of activities to enjoy. Big lake for water sports and Kayaking...and if you are into scuba diving that is the local place to go.

I saw this location's website two days ago (and sent photos to my husband to see if he liked it) and looked at it again per your recommendation- so we have officially booked our 5 night Spring Break trip! We booked on the water with a deck.

I am working on the summer one now.

Great recommendations everyone!

Alright folks... I'm so close to booking the summer trip but before I spend almost $90 a night for a spot, I wanted to ask if anyone is aware of lake beachside camping as opposed to Atlantic ocean camping. I'm really just looking to provide our family with an unforgettable vacation with swimming, mini golf, maybe an arcade and I really want water front, or a few sites away.
I'm picturing camping near something like lake Lures beach but not lake lure. We go there every year and want to explore something different.
If we don't find anything else we have narrowed our search down to Ocean Lakes, Lakewood family camground, and Myrtle Beach Travel park. Neither of us are fans of myrtle beach but those sites are the closest to the vibe I'm going for.

Thanks for any insight!
