Palmetto Cove is a non-profit, volunteer-run RV park in the upstate of South Carolina.  (Why RV-only? Read more here.)   We are a quiet, family-friendly spot for both individual RV’ers and large group events.   The park operates from April to Mid-November.  Click here to see our rates.

All sites are level, and have water, sewer and electric connections.  Many of the sites are pull-through.  Pets are welcome, but must be on leash at all times, and owners must clean up after their pets.  Some areas are off-limits to pets.

Facilities include:

  • A large furnished picnic shelter with outdoor fireplace (wood on-site), grills, and horseshoe area
  • A clubhouse with coffee area, lounge, game tables and piano
  • A group meeting hall with folding tables and chairs, platform stage, and fully-equipped kitchen
  • Laundromat
  • Walking and biking areas, and river access.
  • Wi-Fi – Ask for the access code when you sign in at the office.

If you are planning a group event, you will need to reserve ahead; otherwise, reservations are not required (and virtually never needed).  You can phone the park at (864) 836-6221 to make group reservations.  You can aslo email: host AT palmettocove DOT com .

I’ll continue adding more information about the park as I get this blog built; in the meantime, please visit our website at  You can find a brochure with driving directions on that site.

What does the place look like? For a quick photo-tour of the park, take a look this post:  Martin Miller’s photos from the 2008 State Airstream Rally.

Trails On-Site: For a description of the first section of on-site hiking / mountain biking trails, look at this post.  For a trail map, look at this google map.

And here are a few observations about accessibility for campers with mobility and wheelchair-access concerns.  Not the final word, but enough to get you started on your trip-planning, and give you an idea of what questions to ask concerning your specific needs.
