The following campground activities are available...some only during the summer and others available all year long!
During the busy summer season, the most popular activity is the swimming pool. It is available from late May to early September. Rental banana bikes for the kids are also available during the summer but you are welcome to bring your own. Available year-round, the 18 hole mini-golf with its Disney themed obstacles will challenge you to make a hole-in-one. The game room is designed for the older kids and adults with its table games. Challenge your teenager to a crazy game of foosball or a wild game of air hockey. Perhaps a laid back game of pool is more your style! Outside, see if your spouse can beat you in a game of horse shoes. The whole family can play a game of "horse" on the basketball court while the little ones get tired swinging on the playground swings, teetering on the totters or climbing on the monkey bars. (During the off season, the game room is available by request during office hours.)

How did Anderson SC get its name?
Anderson is named for General Robert Anderson, a Revolutionary War hero, who came to South Carolina to assist his good friend, Andrew Pickens, in surveying land that had been given previously to the English Colony by area Native Americans. The City was founded in December 1826 and incorporated by an Act of Legislature in 1833.
The Electric City Why is Anderson called the "Electric City"? In the late 1800's, Anderson boasted numerous textile mills. Anderson engineer William Whitner produced a way for electricity to be conducted by wires to these mills using hydroelectric power. Anderson was the first city in the United States to have a continuous supply of electric power and the first in the world to create a cotton gin operated by electricity. Mr. Whitner has several places of distinction in Downtown Anderson, including a statue in front of the Anderson County Courthouse and a street named in his honor.
