RV Parks Near Clemson, SC

Heading down to Clemson this summer to visit son and family. Looking for recommendations for a RV park near Clemson that will take a 42' RV. Thanks.

Would you settle for a state park? There is a SC state park at exit # 1 just inside SC from Georgia line. It is on Lake Hartwell. We have stayed there and it is OK. Name escapes me, but I think it is like Hart State Park maybe. Maybe 15 minutes to Clemson.

We used to live in Oconee county (West Union/Crossroads/Westminster). Chau Ram has the smallest sites. It is also the 2nd farthest from Clemson with Devils Fork being the farthest.

My two favorites in the area are Twin Lakes (Corps of Engineers on the lake, about 5 - 6 miles to middle of Clemson) and Crooked Creek (commercial campground about 15 miles from Clemson). Spaces for a 42' in Twin Lakes are rather limited so you would need to reserve early (I prefer #33 or #34 - both have lake views). There are a few that have no water views which are easier to get. Crooked Creek is very popular and the sites closer to the water (park overlooks the lake) are usually reserved months in advance - at least for the weekends and holidays. All sites in the park should accomodate a 42'. The sites a little higher up the slope are terraced and face the water as well. They are a little easier to get during the summer. I also have a 42' and have stayed in both parks many times.
