Elliott's Landing and Campground Review

Current Location: Elliott's Landing and Campground Pinewood SC
Next Stop:  Ridgeville SC early next week

Elliott’s Landing is a small private campground with 48 site most were 50 amp service all with water and sewage.  They are located on Lake Marion near Rimini SC part of the Santee Cooper Lakes System.  It was established in 1945 when the Santee Cooper Lakes were flooded making it the oldest campground on the lakes.

The sites are all full hook ups with plenty of space for my 33 foot fifth wheel and tow vehicle.  The road into the campground is about 1 mile of gravel road with potential of plenty of dust and or a little messy if there is a heavy rain.   The sites are level grassy pads with a sandy base some shady sites with most being limited shade.  The roads in the campground are easy to maneuver for a big rig.  The sites on the lake are pull in and back out the other sites are all pull thru.  They have a 300 foot fishing dock, a boat launch, a general store and two bath houses.  I watched my brother catching some large shell crackers and catfish off the bank at his camp site.  During the spring and summer it is reported that the dock is a fishing hot spot with plenty of action.

The Verizon Wireless reception was good with a solid 4G connection.  Over the air TV reception was good I was able to pick up all the major networks and more.

I stayed at Elliott’s Landing March 2017 for several weeks.  I found it to be a great place to stay.  A lot of the sites were long term residents but only a few of them actually stayed in the campground the others showed up with their boats for the weekends to enjoy some fishing and relaxing time.  The area is a little remote with the nearest shopping area a 20 mile drive to Manning.
