Cherry Hill Campground in the Sumter National Forest in South Carolina is of note for various reasons. Not only is it located in a National Forest that provides a lot of recreational opportunities including hiking across state lines, if you don’t mind getting wet, Cherry Hill Campground is one of the nicest National Forest Campgrounds that I have seen.

Nestled into the Sumter National Forest along South Carolina’s border with Georgia and near to the state’s border with North Carolina, Cherry Hill campground offers about 30 camping sites at a low National Forest price. However, included in the low price common to National Forest campgrounds are both hot showers and flush toilets which are somewhat uncommon in National Forest campgrounds. Aside from the nice facilities Cherry Hill’s camping sites are large and spacious, offer a good deal of privacy, and offer a big dose of peace and quiet. The large sites at Cherry Hill campground are generally shaded by tall trees while lower vegetation provides privacy between most sites in the campground. A handful of sites at Cherry Hill are walk in sites, meaning that you have to carry your stuff a short distance from your car. The distance is small but it does provide a bit more solitude and quiet. The primary sites are arranged in a common loop fashion. Camping sites provide picnic tables and a fire ring. Many sites lie next to a small stream and if you time your visit right your site will be decorated with blooming rhododendrons. Cherry Hill campground has an on site host which helps to assure the rules are followed and keeps the place clean.

Hiking and fishing are two popular activities for those staying at Cherry Hill campground. The Chattooga River is within easy hiking range for fisherman as well as other smaller streams that are closer. The Chattooga River forms the border between Georgia and South Carolina in this part of the state. Hiking trails lead in many directions from Cherry Hill campground.

Other sites of interest in the area include: Devil’s Fork State Park, Lake Jocassee, Lake Keowee, Lake Burton (GA), Black Rock Mountain State Park (GA), and other sites in Sumter National Forest, Nantahala National Forest and Pisgah National Forest (NC), and Chattahoochee National Forest (GA).

Cherry Hill Campground is located off of Route 107 north of Walhalla, SC, and south of the North Carolina State line. Cherry Hill’s location makes a nice place for nearby Clemson University students to relax as well as residents of the tri state region and other passing through the area.
