Newberry / I-26 / Sumter NF KOA Journey Recreation

We're a year-round campground because there's always something to do at Newberry, SC KOA!
In the summer, take a dip in our saltwater pool.
In the fall and winter, cozy up to a campfire and a star-studded Carolina sky.
During the spring, watch Mother Nature rejuvenate herself.
Any time of the year, kids can enjoy scavenger hunts and our playground. We also have games to borrow, from horseshoes and croquet to giant checkers and corn hole.

Wanna "stay in?" You can borrow a movie from our DVD collection or take a book from our lending library. (Leaving one, too, is optional.)

We also offer monthly events to support our favorite charities. Check out our "Events" tab for the latest information.

Feeling adventurous? Lake Murray and Lake Greenwood offer easy day trips for the whole family to enjoy. 
Like hikes? Explore Sumter National Forest and nearby hiking trails, like Musgrove Mill.
Like wine? We're within an hour's drive of five different wineries. 

When we say we're in the middle of everywhere, we mean it!

It's not for the little ones or the adults. This zipline is meant just for 'Tweens and teens!

There are a few rules to follow, but it's just the right size for kids who want to try ziplining. Parental consent and close-toed shoes are required.
We offer rides daily, so be sure to ask for details when you check in!

We love pets, and we know that many of you do, too. Our fenced and gated K9 park, Hopper's Hollow, is the perfect spot for your four-legged companion to run and play.

Kids have fun hunting for gnomes or "OurVee Rocks," hidden just for them in the campground. During the holidays, we'll hide them for grown-ups, too!
