Wateree Recreation Area | Featured Camping


This week’s featured camping location is the Wateree Recreation Area in South Carolina! The Wateree Recreation Area is situated on 25 wooded acres on Lake Wateree in Camden, and offers various camping and lodging options.  It is a stand-alone campground, but run by the Shaw Air Force Base FSS (Force Support Squadron).  It is open to active duty and their families, retirees, and all other authorized DoD customers.  Reservations can be made 120 days in advance by active duty assigned to Shaw AFB, 90 days in advance by other active duty members, and 60 days in advance by all other authorized users.

Wateree Recreation Area offers 16 cabins (some which are pet-friendly), 22 recreational vehicle sites, tent camping, and has lake swimming seasonally.  There are 11 two-bedroom cabins, 4 three-bedroom cabins, and 1 one-bedroom cabin.  Each cabin comes with dishes, pots, pans, coffee makers, microwaves, and TVs.  For those of you bringing your RV, you will find 22 sites which have 20/30/50 amp electric, water, and sewer hook-ups.  If you need beverages or snacks, or want to pick up some bait, you’ll find a small re-sale store that offers these conveniences.

Cabin rates will vary based on season and cabin size, ranging anywhere from $68-$110 daily.  RV site pricing is $22 daily during peak season, but $20 daily Nov 1- Mar 31.  There is 1 RV site that can fit up to 61′, 1 that can fit up to 59′, several that will fit up to 50′, and the rest vary.  If you’d prefer to camp in a tent, prices are $7.50 per tent per night, but you will find discounted pricing if you stay 3 nights or more!
