There are no cabins for rent on the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests.
Camping is allowed in developed campgrounds and in designated primitive sites. Visitors who wish to camp outside these areas (dispersed camping) may obtain a free permit from the local district offices on the Long Cane, Enoree and Francis Marion districts. No permit is required on the Andrew Pickens district for dispersed camping.
Only four campgrounds offer reservations for campsites: Cherry Hill, Whetstone and Cassidy Bridge on the Andrew Pickens Ranger District; and Buck Hall on the Francis Marion Ranger District. Reservations for these campgrounds can be made online at the www.recreation.gov.
Campsites in all other campgrounds are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Campgrounds that require a fee for camping will have a self-serve pay station.
Campfire permits are not required. However, please check with the local district office about fire conditions.
