Wateree Recreation Area

Thumbnail imageWateree Recreation Area is located in the heart of South Carolina’s Olde English District, where the three large river systems, Pee-Dee, Catawba-Wateree and Broad, that once brought in settlers, now lure campers, picnickers and fishermen alike! This 14,000-acre hydroelectric impoundment has a 190-mile shoreline. Situated on a peninsula of 25 pristine wooded acres, Wateree Recreation Area is designed for the recreational enjoyment of military members, their families, retirees and all other authorized DoD customers. Join us for the day to swim or have a cookout or stay all season long at one of our full service RV sites. Wateree offers something for everyone! We even offer Wi-Fi so you can read your Kindle or upload pictures to Facebook while you wait for the fish to bite!Reservations may be made 90 days in advance by active-duty military members and 60 days in advance by all other authorized users. All cabin rentals are a 2-night stay minimum.

 The facility offers 11 two-bedroom cabins, two 3-bedroom cabins, and one 1-bedroom cabin. Each cabin is fully equipped with linens, towels, dishes, pots, pans, coffee makers, microwave ovens and TV.
