Our area has lots of natural and man-made activities. You'll need more than one day to see and do it all!
Explore the downtown Anderson area by walking. There are three routes that will get you out and moving. Take the "Healthy" Route (3 miles), the "Civic" Route (1 mile) or the "Cultural" Route (2 miles) .
The three mile Healthy Route is the longest route and links to several health and fitness facilities.
The Civic Route is named such for the many governmental agencies that are along this one mile route.
The Cultural Route is two miles; here you will find many art, museum and theatre destinations.
No matter which route you choose there is much to see and admire along the way; our beautiful historic buildings, courtyards, fountains and many public art installations. Have fun on your way; count how many fish or wrens you see. You can also gain wisdom by reading our Wise Walks that are etched in our sidewalks.
Our local area is known for great bass fishing and other lake activities. Enjoy your time at our campground and spend a day at nearby Hartwell Lake boating (rental pontoons available at a nearby marina) or swimming or jet skiing. Note: we do not have access to the lake but Portman Marina is just six blocks from the campground where you can launch your boat for a nominal fee.
One of the largest flea markets in the Southeast is just 20 minutes from the campground and is open all year on Saturdays and Sundays. Even if it rains a large portion of the market is indoors!
Hiking and waterfalls are just 45 minutes from the campground in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is always interesting to visit the fish hatchery or tour the South Carolina Botanical Garden at Clemson University. The kids will enjoy the Bob Campbell Geology Museum with its glowing rocks and moon rocks.
