General Campground Information

Check-in and Check-out Times

Check-in is at 2 pm.
Check-out is at 11 am.

We understand how quickly travel plans can change. Generally, we ask our guests to stick to this schedule to allow us time to clean sites between guests' arrivals and departures.
If you absolutely NEED to check-in early or late, please call the office to make arrangements. Fees may apply.

Store Hours

The store is open during regular office hours, so if you need S'mores fixings, an ice cream treat, a bag of ice, a bottle of water, or a bundle of firewood, we've got your needs covered...and then some!


We're frequently asked if pets are welcome here, and the answer is a resounding, "YES!"
We love dogs, including our own D.O.G. (Director of Greetings) Hopper, and we know how much four-legged guests love camping, too.
Feel free to walk your dog around the campground, especially at the enclosed K-9 dog park.
Naturally, there are a few rules to follow:
  • Please keep your dogs leashed at all times.
  • No dogs are allowed in any of the buildings, including restroom, office, laundry room, and pavilion.
  • Please be aware of the noise your pets make; not all of our guests love dogs.
  • "Mutt Mitts" are provided throughout the campground. Please clean up after your dog.


Yes, we're now licensed to sell Propane!
Get your tanks filled during office hours.

Pool Hours

The pool is closed for the season, but you'll be able to swim again in May 2021. Stay tuned for exact opening date.

Quiet Hours

11:00pm to 7:00am

Meet Your Hosts

Stan & Mea; Gene & Linda (& Hopper); Steve & Becci

Welcome to the middle of everywhere!

Greetings, Campers!

Before you ask:

Yes, we live here.
Yes, we're life-long campers.
Yes, we (not KOA) own the campground.
Yes, we LOVE our lives as campground owners and as your hosts!

If you've seen a streak of yellow, then you've seen us--the three couples who own, maintain, and manage Newberry/I-26/Sumter N.F. KOA!

Long story, short: In 2018, Becci and Steve lived at Holden Beach RV Campground as work campers. There, they met Linda and Gene, and they also managed to convince Stan and Mea (Becci's parents) to give full-time camping a try. Not long after, over a meal and a campfire, Steve dropped the idea to the group about buying a campground. Although he was initially met with a chorus of, "You're out of your mind" responses, the thought of being campground owners took shape. Forever Summer Management, LLC was born. After a few months and many conference calls, the group discovered that a cute place called Magnolia RV Park and Campground was for sale. The rest, as they say, is history. In May of 2020, despite COVID, we bought this lovely "slice of heaven," and we couldn't be happier if we tried!

We thank you for staying with us, and we hope that you'll take a second to chat with us about your story and what brought you here, whether it's for a day, a weekend or more. 

Do let us know if there's anything that we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.

Until we meet again, 

Happy and Safe Trails to you!

Stan, Mea, Gene, Linda, Steve & Becci
