J. Strom Thurmond Dam and Lake

 

At Thurmond Lake, one of our most popular outdoor recreation activities is camping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages 13 campgrounds at Thurmond Lake with a total of 554 campsites.

Many of these campgrounds feature amenities such as restrooms, showers, boat ramps, sanitary disposal stations, playgrounds, electric and water hook-ups, courtesy docks, group camping, and designated swimming areas. Eleven of the campgrounds feature contract park attendants who register incoming campers, provide information, and ensure the campground is operated to provide the safest, most enjoyable experience for all visitors.

One Corps managed Group Camp is available at Thurmond Lake – Big Hart. Group Camps allow clubs, families, and friends to camp together in a common area for a reasonable fee.

Broad River, Clay Hill and Hester's Ferry campgrounds are now operated under lease to Lincoln County, GA.   For reservations and additonal information on these campgrounds click here:
