Abbeville is a cozy, historic community located west of Greenwood and southeast of Anderson. If you're planning a trip to South Carolina's rural Upstate, Abbeville is well worth a pit stop. When you book an RV in Abbeville, you'll uncover some intriguing facts about this unassuming small town.
Abbeville has been around since the mid-18th century and played a major role in the start (and the end) of the Civil War. Park your motorhome rental in Abbeville and wander into the quaint downtown area to experience Southern hospitality and architecture at their finest.
Immerse yourself in the unique beauty of South Carolina's backwoods at Long Cane Scenic Area. As you trek the loop trails here, you might not encounter another soul. This natural area also has some hidden gems, literally. You can mine for amethyst, quartz, and other natural minerals in this quiet locale. If you're looking for a challenge, pack up your mountain bike in your camper rental from Abbeville and break a sweat on one of the Parsons Mountain trails.
Lake Greenwood State Park is a popular destination for avid anglers in the Upstate. Fishing is the main draw to the 11,000-acre eponymous lake, but boaters and swimmers are welcome to beat the South Carolina summer heat in these tranquil waters too. If you're planning to make the trip to Lake Greenwood in your RV rental from Abbeville, be aware that alligators and leeches lurk in these murky waters -- swim at your own risk!
Calhoun Falls State Park, located in nearby Calhoun Falls, is touted as one of the best camping destinations in the state. Nestled on the shores of Lake Russell, Calhoun Falls State Park offers a variety of activities, namely fishing. Only one hiking trail is available here, and it's a short, easy walk, but if you're visiting at the height of South Carolina's sweltering summer, a short walk is all you'll need. Be sure to check out the events calendar when planning your visit. You just might be the next contestant in the South Carolina Campground Cookoff.
There's no need to leave town if you're looking for a place to park your luxury motorhome rental in Abbeville. Parsons Mountain Lake Campground is located within the Parsons Mountain Recreation Area and makes a great stopover spot for smaller trailers and RVs. You won't find any hookups here, but if you're craving a little fresh air and natural beauty, you'll find both in spades at Parsons Mountain Lake. Sites come with a fire ring and picnic table.
If you're already planning a trip to Calhoun Falls State Park, you can drive your RV rental from Abbeville to Calhoun Falls' campgrounds to see what all the fuss is about. You'll find three campgrounds here, two of which offer hookups to water and electricity. Other amenities include a dump station, laundry facilities, and pristine restrooms and showers. The best part? All sites, with the exception of a single tent site, are situated right on the lakeshore.
You won't find noisy nightlife or bustling shopping malls in Abbeville, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do in this laid-back locale. Here's a fun fact about Abbeville's history: the town is known as "the birthplace and deathbed of the Confederacy." Abbeville's Burt-Stark Mansion housed the final meeting of the Confederate War Council, effectively ending the Civil War. Legend has it that an exhausted Jefferson Davis admitted defeat to his top generals, uttering, "All is indeed lost." The Burt-Stark Mansion is a stunning example of Southern architecture and features artifacts and antiques from the antebellum era. Don't miss the chance to tour this historic home while you're in town.
After you've marveled at the decor on display at the Burt-Stark Mansion, catch a show at Abbeville Opera House. Located in a beautifully constructed building that's more than a century old, Abbeville Opera House rightly earned the title of the Official Rural Drama State Theatre of South Carolina. Local performers from the Upstate, particularly theater majors from Lander University in neighboring Greenwood, take to the opera house stage to dazzle and delight more than 20,000 spectators each year.
Whether you're just passing through Abbeville or you're visiting family, you'll want to take the short trip into Anderson to visit a truly unique attraction: Denver Downs Farm. The family has worked these fields since 1869, cultivating everything from cotton to dairy products. This working farm offers kid-friendly fun for the whole family. Corn mazes, fall festivals, war re-enactments - there's always something exciting happening at Denver Downs.
Once you've had your fill of Southern hospitality and history, hit the road in your campervan rental from Abbeville and head into nearby Greenwood to refuel the rig and restock supplies before continuing your road trip through the Upstate.
