Free Camping at Santee Coastal Reserve in South Carolina
If you'd like to see the blog post with more of our Off the Beaten Path places to see in South Carolina, visit
We live and travel full-time in our RV. In 2018 we spent a total of $48 in camping fees. So boondocking (aka: dry camping) is what we do best! In a big rig sometimes that can get challenging but we don't let it stop us. We love to share our boondocking locations with anyone interested.
When the National Forest we were hoping to stay at for a few days was closed due to the government shut down, we scrambled to find our plan B. Our plan B was awesome! Probably better than our Plan A! Santee Coastal Reserve in McClellanville, SC was fantastic! We went on a short hike, explored the little, unique town and saw our first alligator in the wild.
We just sincerely would like to thank each and every person who watches, subscribes and supports us with the amazing, encouraging comments. We do this for you!

The Belfast Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is a 4,664-acre tract located ten miles northwest of Newberry on Highway 56 near the Kinards community. The property is situated on the Newberry/ Laurens County line, with most of the land area in Newberry County. Col. John Simpson of Belfast, Ireland, settled the land in 1786. The historic Belfast Plantation house, located in Laurens County, was built by Col. Simpson in the early 1800's.
Champion Paper Company formerly owned this property, followed by International Paper Company. Champion Paper Company maintained the area for recreation and forest products production for many years and their regional headquarters was located here.
Upland pine forests and hardwood drains are found throughout the property. Wildlife plantings are located along power lines and road edge openings within the tract. Wildlife management practices include pine thinning and prescribed burns. All land management activities are conducted according to Best Management Practices as prescribed by the SC Forestry Commission. Forest management emphasis is on wildlife habitat improvement.
Wildlife game species present include deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, dove, quail and raccoon. Other furbearer species found here include fox, bobcat and coyote. Many songbirds, raptors, reptiles and amphibians occur on the area. Plants in hardwood drains include most species common to the piedmont. Plant and animal diversity in the pine stands will be increased through timber thinning and prescribed fire.
This WMA is open for public use throughout the year except during drawn hunts. Deer and turkey hunting is by drawing only, with some special hunts for youth and mobility-impaired participants. Applications are available by calling 803-734-3886. Deer and turkey hunters who are selected are required to check in and check out at the Belfast House. Regulations for other hunting activities can be found in the SCDNR Rules and Regulation brochure. All adult hunters must have a valid hunting license and a WMA permit.
Fishing is by special event permit only.
This area is closed to horses and ATVs.
