If you're tired of pull-thru stops and looking for the next spot in South Carolina to set up long-term in your RV, you'll want to find a park that offers permanent RV camping. Fortunately, South Carolina is rich with them in addition to rentals, and most cut deals for campers who opt to pay long-term rates rather than daily or weekly rates. Here are a few options:

Acapulco RV Camp

Acapulco is located in Leesville, South Carolina, and offers loads of amenities for its campers, including:

  • A sand volleyball court
  • A free boat ramp
  • Laundry facilities
  • Bundled firewood
  • Bagged ice
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • A fire pit
  • Full water, sewer and electric hookups

If you're staying at Acapulco RV campsites, you'll have access to the lake for fishing, swimming and boating, and to the land for biking and riding golf carts. Long-term pricing ranges from about $450 to $700 a month, $925 to $1,450 per quarter and $2,800 to $4,380 annually.

The campsite is less than 150 miles from Charleston and is driving distance (within a few hours) from oceanfront beaches including Myrtle Beach.

Bass Lake RV Campground

This RV park & campground is located in Dillon, South Carolina, and offers free Wi-Fi, a laundry room, a children's play area, propane, dog park, a fishing pier, picnic tables, an on-site shop, a bathhouse and a recreational room for its campsite visitors. The site is pet friendly, animals are welcome as long as dogs are kept on a leash, and owners must clean up after their animals.

Bass Lake features full pull-through sites, with full service on 30/50 amp RV sites. Campers can choose open areas or secluded ones, which might work best for those hoping to stay longer. The campground doesn't have a limit on the number of days you can stay there, and the monthly rate for both 30 and 50-amp RVs is $320.

The park is only around 100 miles from Columbia, SC or 200 miles from Hilton Head Island which can offer a getaway from the RV resort.

Keowee Falls RV Park

If you're looking for nature, Keowee Falls has it, complete with a lake chock full of fish, a nearby waterfall and a beach. The site, attractive for anyone looking to fish or kayak day-in and day-out, is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in South Carolina. It offers monthly and annual rates to campers looking to stay at the park long-term.

For monthly campers, expect to pay about $500 per month for a 30-amp RV and $600 a month for a 50-amp site. Yearly prices vary depending on where you set up your RV: They start at $4,000 for sites near or on the fishing ponds, and range from $5,000 to $8,000 for sites with lakefront views. Both monthly and year-round rates include full hook-ups for water and sewer, and residents must pay for their own big rig power.

There are a plethora of sites available aside from those above including Florence KOA, Oak Plantation Campground, ‌‌Ocean Lakes Family Campground, and more. Sites all carry different amenities, proximity to state parks, cable TV, tent sites, deluxe restrooms, golf course access, game rooms, snack bar, or a swimming pool. Do plenty of research and remember that RV life allows mobility and freedom to leave if a site is not right for you.
