Looking for month-month park

Hello,

I am new to all this as I have just picked up my first camper (not a RV). I have recently been transferred from Florida (my home for the last 30 years) to the Rock Hill SC area.

I am looking to stay in my camper for about 6 months until my family can come up permanently and we buy a house. At home we have RV Parks that folks never move out of and snowbirds keep campers their year round or folks come and go every weekend.

I would like to find a park that has a reasonable monthly charge (not the standard $30/night) and is nice to stay at. I may also be asking for too much as I don't know if the rest of the country works like Florida.

I will be looking in the following areas around Lake Wylie.
Newport, SC
Clover, SC
York, SC
Fort Mill, SC
Rock Hill, SC
Or other close to lake areas (working at Catawba Station on the lake).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Campgrounds near Lake Wylie

Not many choices as State Parks don't have monthly stays.

Cannot help with your specific area, but you should be able to find monthly rates. We typically park for a month or more during our travels, and, except for a few commercial parks next to resorts, most offer monthly rates. Our average, without any effort to look for low rates, is somewhere in the range of $15- $20 per night. State parks are typically not conducive to this kind of long term stay due to length of stay limitations and lack of full hook up sites.

Many parks do not publish monthly rates. You have to ask. Good luck in your new job.

RV Park Reviews :: Home this should be your first place to look. Not all parks are listed though most are.

I live about 25 miles from Lake Wylie but I have never camped or even checked out any of the camp grounds in this area. I do know there are monthly rates and they should be considerably less than the daily rate. Be prepared to pay for your electricity use & cable TV . Its about 50% of parks that charge these extras for long term stays. You may also check into a space at a Mobil home park, some do allow this.

Thanks all!!!

I have a new resource and some great information. I do expect to pay utilities but won't need cable, if I get cell service.
