Weston Lake Recreation Center, Fort Jackson, SC

We stayed overnight at the Weston Lake Recreation Center which is the military campground of Fort Jackson, SC. The road in is gravelly and hilly. Check in at the Rec Center was easy and the staff was friendly and helpful. There are books and DVDs to borrow.

The RV sites were mostly back-ins and on a sparsely wooded hill. The paved sites made it easy for us to stay balanced while still being hooked up to our truck. The hookup pedestals were the nicest I’ve seen.

We stayed at site # 16. My husband enjoyed spending some time and eating with a military retiree named Jim staying at the campground. Nothing like the ease that comes from conversation with someone who automatically has so much in common with you.

The lake is very nice with a clean beach. If we had more time we would have rented a canoe to do a little more exploring. I’m confident that everyone in a family would be able to find something they could enjoy to do at this campground.

Being veterans, we did a little walk down memory lane when we heard the live fire from a closeby range at 8 a.m. The 50 cals and M4A1s didn’t bother us a bit, but I think anyone who wanted to sleep in would find it difficult at this campground.

Mark and Tina are both US Army veterans who feel blessed to have served and to have seen so much of the world. Mark works as the Director of Military Outreach at a university. He also drives and maintains the camper. Tina is a retired homeschool teacher, does leatherworking, and writes/maintains the website.

They unwind and live in the 150 square feet of their travel trailer as often as possible with side kick Hero (Lhasa Apso mix rescue). Their grown kids tent camp nearby when college and career schedules permit. Being close to nature rejuvenates the family and lends time to focus on what matters most. They’re thankful to God for all of the blessings and opportunities.
