Summary

Buck Hall Recreation Area offers a great location to enjoy the outdoors and access to a variety of recreational activities. Campers can choose between tent and RV camping and enjoy full hookups, a picnic area, fishing and boating opportunities, and access to the Palmetto Trail. It is part of the Francis Marion National Forest in South Carolina.

Overview

Buck Hall Recreation Area offers a premier location to enjoy the outdoors. It is situated along the Intracoastal Waterway and provides great access to Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, 65,000 acres of marsh, tidal creeks and beaches; and Bulls Bay, the coast's best shrimp baiting area.

Recreation

The area is primarily used for shrimp baiting and fishing. Anglers can expect a huge variety of fish, including bass, flounder, sea trout, snapper, mackerel, swordfish, crab, shrimp, clams, oysters and more.

The campground provides access to boating and ocean sailing. Fishing boats and often very large pleasure boats can be seen as they travel the popular Intracoastal Waterway.

A long portion of the Palmetto Trail, which leads from the marshes of the ocean to the mountains of South Carolina, is accessible from the recreation area. Most of the trail is unpaved and can be used for hiking, biking or horseback riding, although a few sections are restricted to foot traffic only.

Facilities

The recreation area boasts a large picnic area and multiple campsites for tent and RV camping. Full hookups are available. Each site is equipped with a table, lantern post and campfire ring with grill.

Accessible flush toilets, showers and drinking water are provided. The picnic area is equipped with tables, grills, an accessible walkway and fish cleaning stations. A lighted parking area and boat ramp are on-site.

Natural Features

The popular campground sits at sea level, alongside the Intracoastal Waterway. It is part of the Francis Marion National Forest in South Carolina. The campground itself is grassy and open, with very few trees and limited shade.

Nearby Attractions

Charleston, South Carolina is about 30 miles southwest of the campground.
