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, rope swings, and our playground. We also have games to borrow, from horseshoes and croquet to giant checkers and corn hole. Finally, kids (young and old) can mine for treasures with our Gem Mining Sluice and ride the Kinardia Coal Mining Cart Train.
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, their labels are also available in our Kampstore.
When we say we're in the middle of everywhere, we mean it!
Our Saltwater Pool is open every day from 9:30 am - sunset!
Happy Summer, Y'all!
Sip a beverage as you watch the little ones play on our playground.
Gem Mining Sluice
The Kinardia Mining Company is looking for a few good miners!
Buy some "rough" in the Camp Store and use the water from the sluice to discover gems!
The Sluice is only open during office hours, so don't miss your chance to find some treasures!
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.
Corn Hole & Horseshoes
Pitch a few with friends.
Ask about the other games you can borrow, too!
Game Shed - Games to Borrow
We have lots of additional games for you to borrow, so just ask us to open up the Game Shed!
Stop by the office for the latest Scavenger Hunt list of things to find around the campground.
It's a great way to slow down and explore. It's good exercise. And, you'll earn a treat once the Hunt is complete!
Coming Soon - Catch and Release Fishing!
We're working on our stabilizing Twin Oak Lake. (It takes a little time for Mother Nature to create an ecosystem!)
There are already lots of frogs and a couple of turtles, but the water isn't quite ready to support any fish.
It will be soon.
