Camping in South Carolina
This weekend I bought a 5 man tent to use for camping. There are many places to camp in South Carolina. In the Coastal Region there are several National Forrest reserves with camping areas. I live in the Francis Marion National Forrest. We can camp just about anywhere in the Forrest. There are streams, rivers and lakes that are great for camping. A person can camp at a campsite, or they can rough- it. Roughing- it is camping in a remote area that does not have facilities such as electricity or running water. In other words, it’s in the middle of the woods or by the water.
Roughing it is considered real camping. The best way to rough it, is to find a stream, river or lake to set up camp by.
