Take your adventure to new heights when you book a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western South Carolina. Some of South Carolina’s most popular hiking trails are in this part of the state, in places like Table Rock, Caesars Head, and Oconee State Parks. These parks are home to a variety of trails for all abilities, so you can just as easily plan a family hike to the summit of Sassafras Mountain or a more challenging hike to discover hidden waterfalls. On the border with Georgia is the Chattooga River, which is a premier whitewater rafting destination in the Southeast. Lake Jocassee is also a great place year-round fishing, found in Devils Fork State Park!
The Midland region is home to a different range of things to do and see in South Carolina. From the horse races in Aiken to whitewater rafting on the Saluda River, kayaking Lake Murray to exploring Congaree National Park, glamping in South Carolina gets you up close and personal with the great outdoors. Congaree National Park, near Columbia, the state capital, features the largest contiguous tract of old growth bottomland hardwoods in the United States and covers 26,000 acres of forest and floodplains. The park has 25 miles of backcountry hiking trails that are self-guided; the most popular is probably the 2.4-mile Boardwalk Loop, which takes you under a canopy of old-growth trees to Weston Lake. A personal favorite of ours is visiting in the spring to watch fireflies put on a spectacular light show. There is a rare species of lighting bugs in the park that synchronize their flashes, and their performance is perhaps best witnessed from the Boardwalk Loop as it reaches Weston Lake. Remember a flashlight and bug spray!
