The fall season in South Carolina provides you with plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun, so pack up the car and don’t miss your chance!
The best thing about camping in the fall is the weather. It’s usually cool enough that you can enjoy all your favorite outdoor activities without feeling overheated, and there are fewer crowds because it gets dark so late during these winter days! Just pack a jacket for those evenings when temperatures dip below 60 degrees.
