Fall is prime time for camping in Ga., S.C.

**Updated Oct. 13 to reflect user comments (Thanks, Georgette Thompson!)**

As recreation season winds down, fall is here, er … mostly, so it’s a perfect time to make plans and get the family together to enjoy the cooler weather.

Though most of the campgrounds around our reservoirs have closed for the season, here are a few ideas for enjoying the fall and winter.

Hartwell: Crescent Group and Springfield campgrounds will close Nov. 1.

Watsadler and Twin Lakes campgrounds will undergo a partial closure beginning Dec. 1, however, many sites / loops will be open year-round.

Thurmond: Leroys Ferry, Bussey Point and Petersburg (sites 1-27) campgrounds will be open year-round. In addition, Broad River and Hester’s Ferry (managed by Lincoln County) are also open year-round.

At Richard B. Russell, camping is managed by Calhoun Falls and Richard B. Russell state parks. Check their websites for more information.

If hunting is your game, Thurmond Lake will host its annual archery and muzzleloader events this weekend and again Nov. 10-11 (details here).

Check out the links below and contact the respective offices for more information.
