When we’re not doing anything else (which of late has been most of the time while I’m waiting on the VA), we like to explore and check out other campgrounds. Even though we choose to stay at this campground near our daughter’s house, there could come a day when a site wouldn’t be available, or even we possibly might like a change of scenery. So we’re always on the lookout for “Plan B”.
We found a great military campground and recreation center near Sumter, SC.
It is run by the U.S. Air Force out of nearby Shaw AFB. It is a wonderful place for military folks and their families to get away and enjoy nature at reasonable prices.
It is located on Lake Wateree, giving lots of opportunities to swim, fish or boat.
There are rustic cabins that can be rented.
They even have RV trailers to rent in the campground, already in place and set up.
There are many nice sized RV sites, all with 50 amps and FHUs.
A playground for kids,
as well as a large recreation hall for large gatherings and events.
The office building has a small store, and is where boats can be rented. No, that boat in front is not one of the rentals… ;c)
It is a nice place for our military folks to kick back and relax, to get away from the pressures of military life. And the amazing part is it is not funded by tax dollars, but by user fees and small fees collected on military commissary purchases.
It is open to active duty, reserve and retired military members. A nice benefit for military service.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
