Nice Quiet State Park
Nice quiet state park. Roads aren't the best but are passable. Rangers are great, friendly and courteous. Lots of trails, but we didn't try any (heat index upper 90s). The fishing pond is small, didn't have any luck. The bathrooms are original but well kept, so they're functional. Our site was small but no problem for our 20' Micro Minnie.
Would definitely recommend.

Just stayed the weekend. Nice spot for a little getaway. Quiet. Plenty of hiking trails and a playground 4 the little ones. Pond to fish. Bath house is old, but we'll kept. Sites are fairly level and not bad to get in.

Peaceful Camp Ground
As mentioned the roads are in bad shape and parts are only big enough for 1 way traffic. Most of the sites are not meant for larger units (30’+). A couple of sites can handle larger units. The problem is there are trees lining the access road and it makes it difficult to maneuver a large unit into the site- even if the site is physically long enough to accommodate a long unit. A long 5th wheel with a big truck will have some challenges.
With that being said, if you like hiking, biking, and fishing, this place is awesome. Nice friendly staff and very helpful. And it’s a beautiful campground.

Good Mountain Biking
Beautiful park with tall trees and Spanish moss. If you’re a mountain biker, this park has a great set up with some of the bike trails leading from the campground. Shower house was adequate with good shower heads and working faucets. Stayed here for the proximity to Congaree National Park which is about a 1hr. drive. There is no playground for kids, but ours made do playing with the pine cones and the sand at our site.
I would agree with the previous review regarding the roads. Quite rough and in need of repair, once you are in the campground area it’s fine.

The park is indeed beautiful with its lake and setting. It was a lil hidden gem that had not been discovered by the crowds. Yet. Unfortunately just like so many SC parks funding is little to none. That is why so many SC parks are in the condition they are in. The worst part of Poinsett was the access road to the camp loop. It is paved and patched and has many ruts and potholes and is very narrow for large equipment going up the 1/4 mile into the camp loop. (Visited June 2017)
