Come on back to the Bottoms — you’ve got friends in low places!
Located in Mt. Carmel, South Carolina, Hester’s Bottoms is a beautiful campground that sits on the 71,000 acre Strom Thurmond Lake (also known as Clarks Hill Lake). Under new management since March of 2021, the campground offers 39 waterfront RV sites and five waterfront primitive sites. All of the sites include WiFi and the RV sites offer 50-, 30-, and 20-amp services.
Guests are invited to use our private boat launch, boat dock, fish from the banks and enjoy the private beach and playground. We offer three bathhouses, each with private hot showers. Campground activities including fishing, swimming, walking, bike riding, kayaking, picnicking, or just hanging with friends and family and watching the sun set in the water.
If you’re interested in enjoying golf carts, kayaks, paddleboards, and more during your stay, we have a rental program right here in the campground — no need to load up your equipment! Just travel light and enjoy renting our toys while you stay at Hester’s Bottoms.
We welcome guests of all ages! It is our mission that if you come as a stranger, you will leave as a friend. Keep an eye out for our year-round events that offer something for the entire family!
