Here we are on the beautiful shores of Wateree Reservoir. We can see the lake in two places from our site #3. Had no trouble getting our motorhome level in this site on the concrete slab but walking around we saw several sites that would have been a challenge to get leveled. Had to wait greater than one hour to check-in as the sign on the office said "out to lunch." However, the gal was efficient and friendly once they re-opened. Our greatest constructive comment is: this place needs some attention! We saw 6 parked golf carts belonging to maintenance but NO maintenance going on. Lots of litter, expecially in the lake near the shore of the rec area proper. Downed dead trees. "Long-termers" sites overflowing with junk in their yards. Nasty dirty laundry room with old machines (1 not working). Bathhouse, although pretty modern/updated, nevertheless overflowing with trash, TP on the floor or stalls simply out. Just looks like they don't have enough maintenance or housekeeping, or if they do, someone needs to light a fire under their hinnys. Well, they have several lovely cabins of differing sizes and styles (viewed from outside only), And we did see a pickup with three new refrigerators being delivered, to cabins we assume. Saw some youth enjoying the water from the little beach. We were grateful to get a space because Shaw AFB FamCamp was full, but perhaps Wateree is past it's prime? Could be superb with an infusion of manpower or even get some hardworking camp hosts to help with the workload.

My low overall rating of this campground is because all of the sites are so unlevel that it is impossible to level a class A without putting several 2 inch blocks under the jacks, and even then the front or rear of the motorhome is off the ground. I couldn't get level in my site, and it was quite noticeable inside the rig. Other than that, the 50 amp service was a pleasant surprise (I was expecting 30, as the "book" says), and it is a great place for fishermen and boaters. There is also a beach area. The campground is well kept and maintained. A trailer or 5th wheel shouldn't have the leveling problems that motorhomes has.
