How about Oconee State Park. I used to camp out with my family a lot there when I grew up in Irmo! It's close to the mountains, Chattooga River, lots to do. Even visit Stump House Tunnel where Clemson University would make blue cheese! Just an idea!

There is also Cherry Hill Campground just north of Oconee State Park on SC107. Small, I think it has 15 campsites, a stream and one shower/latrine facility.

caycek5 - good to meet you today, hopefully we can do some riding together in the future. Good luck with the toyo.

Looks like this may happen this spring after all. I see no one is gonna get off their arse to do this except me. This is contingent upon my purchase of a bike Saturday morning. Otherwise, if I go I'm either caging it or bumming a hack

I will get the dates for y'all soon.

Graywarrant, Cherry Hill sounds pretty nice. I'm down for whatever. To those that will be attending speak up on where ya wanna go. Tell your friends and let's keep this tradition going guys. I'd like to see some upstaters there. Land....this means you. I expect you to use that sweet radio voice/face of yours to talk some adv’ers into coming. New 2 Moto welcome and I hope to see ya there. and lets get the ball rolling it's already march!

My vote is for Eastern or Central SC Francis Marion National forest north of Charleston, Hunting Island State park East of Beaufort (good fishing I hear)

Congaree national park South East of Columbia looks pretty cool!

That would probably be the max range for me would be South of Interstate 20

I have never been to any of these places but near the coast sounds the coolest for me, I have never done much camping in coastal regions.

How many people usually join on this camping trip? Is it usually an over night or a whole weekend thing? I hope this happens soon (even though I don't have any proper storage bags for camping gear) !

To the people who plan to join: Where are you coming from?

Cherry Hill is my vote. Camping for me equates trees and mountains! It ucrowd.

It's usually a big crowd. Some just come for an over night. Most are there for the weekend. All in all. A good group, good fun, always some wrenching, and good stories!

I agree in some respects, but for South Carolina camping I think Central or Coastal best represents what SC has to offer in terms of camping. Cherry Hill is pretty much NC/GA camping.

If many of you are coming from the Greenville area then maybe Sumter Nat Forest would be equally convenient but more central for others!

My vote is still for Francis Marion or Edisto Island or Hunting Island. I agree that mountains and woods feel more 'camp'y' but there is something about coastal camping that is real cool and should be experienced at least once!

Also I would have to join Saturday afternoon as I vend at the Port Royal farmers market every Saturday morning which consists of a healthy chunk of my weekly sales. So Cherry hill, which is 5 hours from me, would be a little to far out for me

Let me know what others are leaning towards!
