Camping

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT AMENITIES:

Not all campsites have identical amenities. Read the campsite information on the reservations website to see photos of campsites; check availability and fees; find out whether a specific site is wheelchair accessible, has access to water, bathouses or pit toilets, or has electric hookup; and learn other important information.

 

Tent and group camping

The adventuresome camper will find plenty to enjoy at Lake Waccamaw's four primitive group camping areas nestled beneath the trees. There is also an additional site that has a maximum capacity of six people.

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. 

 

NOTE – Gate access for campers:

Park gates are closed and locked at posted closing times for your protection. There will be no exiting or entering the gates after the closing time. All visitors who are not spending the night need to be out by closing time. If you leave the park and do not return before closing time, you will not be able to re-enter. Check with the park office during office hours for the after-hours emergency phone number.
