About: Looking to leave city life behind for a few days. How about a secluded venue to enjoy nature? Baker Creek State Park, located on the shores of Lake Thurmond, is the ideal location for a lengthy camping trip or a relaxing swim.
Along with its campgrounds and lake access, Baker Creek is also known for its 10-mile mountain bike trail, where riders can test their skills as they enjoy the park’s stately pine forest. The park also is a great place to observe wildlife, including waterfowl, wild turkeys, deer and curious squirrels.
Baker Creek also has a large lakefront pavilion ideal for family get-togethers and other gatherings. It’s also just a few minutes from Hickory Knob State Resort Park, with its golf course, restaurant and other full-service resort offerings.

Nice, Quiet Place
My wife and I spent 2 nights in the tent loop the weekend of 9/11-12/09 and had a wonderful time. On Friday night, we were the only campers in the 50 site tent loop and on Saturday night one other tent camper came in. It was like having the entire park to ourselves!
I'd give it 5 stars but for the lack of trash cans. They only have one dumpster by the exit and I like to take my trash out nightly to keep the critters from getting into the bags.
This is a campground we'll go back to!
