This park is great for camping. The bathrooms are climate controlled and the free laundry makes this a relaxed stay every time. The site are close together, but the greenery prevents a crowded feel. A bit out of the way, but there is some great...More

I’ve taken my granddaughter to several splash pads but this one, by far, is the best one for the money! It is certainly worth a trip to this state park!

On a month-long Cajun RV adventure, this was the best park we stayed at. It's a bit out of the way, but close enough to Abbeville for dining and grocery shopping. Beautiful setting, fabulous staff.

Really enjoyed the park - huge, deep sites, most with palmettos and trees to separate them and give them privacy. Very nice bathrooms. Park was clean and well maintained. There are no good roads leading to the park. You're going to be traveling through towns...More

Brought the camper out for a test visit. Enjoyed the quietness of the campground and the fishing ponds. Did not catch a keeper, but the time drowning worms was relaxing. Only negative is two night minimum on weekends and not full hooks ups.

Spending 3 months on the road, we found Palmetto State park to be one of our favorites. We saw plenty of wild life including alligators and deer. Lots of places to walk the dog. We kept extending our stay day by day. RV friendly

The Palmetto is very impressive, and they do have some short hikes, that may include a view of a alligator...when we showed the picture to the host, the comment was, oh, you saw the big one. It is estimated to be 11-12 feet. Good facilities,...More

Spent time here checking it out for future rv parking. There is a lot of trails to walk along with beautiful palmetto and moss covered trees. There is canoeing, kyaking etc. Driving around is a delight to the eyes with lots to look at. Very...More

The showers were individual, with shower curtains on each. There was a small dressing area in the front of each shower. They were always clean. Excellent campground hosts.
