Woods Ferry campground is off the beaten path. Way off it. This area is another one of South Carolina’s summertime gemstones, and offers a camper some serious mid-week solitude. I have recently made 4 visits to Woods Ferry for a total of 10 nights and had the entire campground to myself seven or those nights. Only one night did I have anyone close enough to me that I could see them. All my nights were very quiet and peaceful. DAY-USE: Picnic areas get zero use during summer mid-week and the boat launch gets only light use. People do drive in to the day use area to fish the bank of the Broad River in the early evening but they are almost always gone shortly after dark. The access road to the river is totally detached from the campground so it’s not like the vehicles are driving past you in your camp site. You basically only hear the vehicles. Equestrian use is popular and you may see more people on horses in the campground area than you will see people in cars. During my stays at Woods Ferry, I had not seen equestrian campers. Only riders passing through on the various trails that lead in and out of Woods Ferry Recreation Area. Be prepared for rain. When it rains at Woods Ferry, it really rains. The area is a little “buggy”. Whatever insect repellant you prefer, bring plenty of it. For me, rain and bugs at Woods Ferry were only minor and temporary inconveniences. Everything that was good about Woods Ferry was good on a grand scale. My hat is off to the Enoree Ranger District for maintaining this area as well as they do. More people should come out and have some fun here! UPDATE: As of 17 July 2009, there is a camp host available. The married couple is friendly and helpful and do a great job maintaining the cleanliness and beauty of Woods Ferry.
