This is to let you know that there is construction being done at the Dam. The Dam is still open and accessable, but please be cautious around that area. They are in the process of putting a walking bridge over the Dam.Posted on: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 10:21am
It seems that some GPS systems do not give actuate directions to our park. If the directions that the GPS give you advise you to drive though the Green Swamp then there is a possiblity that you will get stuck in the mud. If you are following the GPS directions and it has you turn off on to a dirt road. Stop! Do Not continue. The best directions will keep you on paved roads. See Driving Directions below.
IMPORTANT: Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to preview photos of campsites; check availability and fees; and find out whether a specific site is handicap accessible; has access to water, showers, or restrooms; has electric hookup; and other important information.
The adventuresome camper will find plenty to enjoy at Lake Waccamaw's four primitive group camping areas nestled beneath the trees. Picnic tables, fire circles, and charcoal grills are located in the sites and pit toilets are located nearby. These are hike-in campsites that do not have water or electricity at the site. All supplies, including drinking water, must be packed to the sites. All campers must check in at the visitor center or with a ranger before occupying a campsite and must display a parking pass for overnight parking. Reservations are recommended.
