I-40 heads west from NC through TN. You may want to look at that route.

Table Rock state park in the mtns of south carolina. Its on sc nc line. Take I26 south out of asheville, take a right at the second exit once inside sc, hwy 11. The park will be on your right. Hwy 11 is labeled a scenic rd also. I would say a 45 min drive off the interstate. Water and electric at each site, dump station, and nice bath house. plenty of trails and scenary.

NC beaches

Sc has state campgrounds around the Myrtle Beach area 2 within 10 miles or so each other then another maybe fifty miles toward Charleston. All have water and electric. all have sewer but limited supply. Have to reserve to get the sewer. Shorts and tee shirt weather, but the water is to cold unless your truly from the north, then maybe. It's about 7-8 drive from Wilmington to the mountains. Maybe a little less if you go to the foothills like Asheville. It's around 6 hrs from myrtle beach to Asheville in real driving time. Plenty of camping around North and South Carolina. Probably wouldn't go any farther N than Morehead City area to stay in the warmer zone that time of year. Just my opinion

Two strong recommendations. Huntington Beach SP about 25 miles below Myrtle beach, SC.
Beach access, wildlife viewing, bike trails, and Brookgreen Gardens where you can spend the whole day. We stay there each year and enjoy it more each time we go. Next is Skidaway Island SP just outside Savannah. We stay there a couple of times each year. Enjoy Old Savannah, Tybee Island "Crab Shack", and visit Wormsloe Plantation. Also agree with Stone Mountain SP just above Elkin, NC. Nice camping, hiking, fishing, etc.

x2 on Hunting Island near Beuford. Davidson River off I26 in the mountains near Brevard NC has a federal park with a limited no of electric and water sites. 16$ a night with senior pass. No sewer but this area is great for hiking and doing the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you want to tour Charleston James Island County park is close.

This is my "home" region. Recommend Huntington Beach State Park close to Murrell's Inlet. I stock my freezer from Murrell's Inlet Seafood Market. Also, Edisto Island just south of Charleston for a rural beach experience. Skidaway Island State Park has a tram tour of Savannah that will pick you up at the park. I am just so-so on Hunting Island State Park. Beaufort is a really nice small town with some interesting tours and history but Hunting Island is now so big that you may have to drive to the beach. I'll see you in April at Edisto and Huntington Beach. Not too hot, bug hoards are not yet out. I have 2 wks at each. Look at the Corps of Engineers campgrounds in North Carolina- Recreation.gov. By the way, I live on Skidaway Island when I am not on the road and will be happy to answer any Savannah questions. Hope you have a wonderful trip to my part of the country!

Stone Mt. Is very difficult to get into, book very early, NOW! Skid away island is also a GREAT place, we loved it! I would plan a stay in the NC Mts. Take a day and cruise the Blue Ridge Parkway, go up Mt Mitchell, head up to Boone, do Chimney Rock, a lot of great things to see and do in the Mts.

How difficult to get reservations in the state parks in this area? We don't have our rig yet so we can't really make any reservations yet.

Stone Mt. is VERY difficult, we are actually going next week, but I've tried no less than 12 times in the past 2 year's and it is booked well in advance. It seem's to be the most difficult to get into for us. We frequent Ebeneezer in Rock Hill, SC, never had a problem, actually never have a problem around us, we are just north of Charlotte, we just struggle with Stone Mt., all other's have been good to get reservation's.
