- Tabor City Jellystone Park
A very “civilized” way to introduce your family to camping, this Jellystone offers yurt rentals.

- Lake Hartwell State Park
The not-entirely-primitive rustic camper cabins at Lake Hartwell will provide your family with lakefront shelter, lights, electricity, heating & air conditioning, and sleeping quarters – although, you must provide your own bedding. Although there is no running water or cooking inside the cabins, right outside your door you will find a spigot, fire ring and grill. Recreational activities at Lake Hartwell include fishing, boating, hiking, a visitors center & a basketball court. View more information about Lake Hartwell State Park or jump right to the camper cabin info.

The option of staying on location, in one of the unique yurts, provides your family with shelter, kitchen, grills, and a bathhouse within walking distance.
