By far the best place to camp near Augusta GA, Mistletoe State park offers an array of options for those wanting to camp.

Mistletoe State Park is located on the beautiful Clark’s Hill Lake created by the J. Strom Thurmond Dam. The park offers an array of hiking trails, but is most well-known for its numerous camping spots and bass fishing. The park offers a whopping total of 100 camping sites, 4 of which are backcountry campsites. The other 96 campsites offer 40ft lot that can easily house a large trailer, motorhome or multiple tents. Each site is also equipped with electric and water along with a grill, fire pit, and picnic table. Nearly all of these campsites are on the lake or have a view of it. The park also has 10 waterfront cottages that are available for rent. Each cabin is a two bedroom, has a full bath, wood burning fireplace, large kitchen, TV, and AC. It’s a perfect place for those looking to get away without having to rent an RV or sleep in a tent. These usually cost around $150 per night and sleep 8 people comfortably.  If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, but want to sleep in a shelter, try out the “tent cabin” which features ceiling fans, electric, 4 beds (bring a sleeping bag), and costs only $55/night. It is an easy hike to the beach house from every campsite via the Beach Access Trail. The beach features a volleyball court, a roped off swimming area, lots of trees to hang up your hammock and a large beach house with restrooms, a large deck, and rental meeting area upstairs for large groups (75+). Mistletoe is a very quiet and genuinely fun place to camp. You have lots of options and plenty of space between you and your neighbor. Bring a fishing pole, swimsuit and have fun!
