Back to nature

We are at the
Cheraw State Park, near Cheraw, South Carolina (map). There are 17 sites here with water and electric, but we are the only ones here other than the camp host.

Yesterday was a short driving day for us, because we had a two-hour conference call in the middle of the day. We ended up stopping in Laurinburg, NC, off US-401, to take our call. Our guides showed this park, as well as a Wal-Mart in Cheraw, in the event the park did not work out.

It's a lovely park, with a little lake in the middle created by the CCC in the 30s. There are apparently eight cabins of the same vintage on the other side of the lake, as well as a golf course. The campground is lovely -- wooded, and ajacent to the lake. Having our pick of spaces allowed me to find one with a gap in the trees to get online.

We'll probably take a short walk this morning over to the dam, and maybe across to the other side of the lake. We need to be on the road a bit early today, though, as Louise has a conference call starting at 2 that will last until dark, and I want to be at least as far as the Flying-J in Columbia before it starts.

  1. I am glad you enjoyed Cheraw. It is one of the undiscovered gems in the SC state park system. Have stayed in the cabins and they are a joy, built in the thirties but rebuilt recently.

    Most of the people who drive through the gates at Cheraw come for the golf.
