Brick House Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Talk about transition—one minute I was zipping along I-26, and the next I was at Brick House Campground. The place was so quiet that I could hear myself breathe. Rushing down the interstate was exactly what I was trying to get away from. The serene atmosphere and quaint natural setting of Brick House were exactly what tent campers want. Brick House delivered, so much so that I just hung around the campsite all day reveling in the clear, crisp fall air that had swept over the South Carolina Midlands. The next day I hiked the nearby Buncombe Trail. A mountain bike would’ve been an even better means of traveling this trail, but I was regrettably bikeless. However, mountain bikers are discovering and enjoying this path in ever-increasing numbers."

Brick House campground is a continuation of my tour of South Carolina’s best kept secrets. Summertime use there during mid-week is minimal, although the nearby Buncombe Horse Trail receives some use. During my stay, riders simply passed through the campground area. The campground itself, however, was empty all the nights I stayed there. Most sites are designed for equestrian use but tent camping can be enjoyed by horse riders and non-horse riders on a first come-first served basis. Nightly fee is $5.
There is no water source at Brick House so be sure to bring what you need. If you run out of water or other supplies, the town of Whitmire is less than 10 miles away. You will find what you need there. Hiking and biking the Buncombe Trail is a good way to have fun at Brick House. Please read the Buncombe Trail summary page and trail guide here at Trails.com. There is plenty of information available. Click on the AFalconGuide summary page link. The Enoree Rangers do a superior job maintaining Brick House. Everything is clean, organized and informative. Pretty classy place for a semi-primitive campground. If you are looking for quiet evenings in the South Carolina woods, Brick House campground is a good bet during summer mid-week.
Nice campground not far from Clinton, SC. There was a small problem with a noisy campsite around 3am. It was handled fairly quickly by the Forest Ranger. Not much privacy between campgrounds. But out of 22 or so campsites I believe that 5 were filled for the weekend. If it has been raining lately you might want to bring your own firewood. It was hard to find wood that wasn't eaten by termites or soaked with water. We were unsuccessful at find anywhere to buy wood as well. Overall a pleasant weekend.
