The first day we drove straight to Petersburg Campground run by the Corps of Engineers.
Petersburg Campground is located on J. Strom Thurmond Lake, just four miles from the Thurmond Dam and Visitor Center and 25 miles from Augusta, Georgia. The 70,000 acre lake and its 1,000+ miles of shoreline provide excellent boating, water skiing, swimming, fishing, hiking and picnicking.
I will say the swimming was heavenly and you could not beat the view.
We got, what we think was, one of the best sites in the Campground, in fact we might say one of the best campsite we have ever had in all our years of camping. Most of the sites are on the water and doubt you can get a bad one.
Here are some photo of and from our site.

it burned so long, over 2 hours, that we finally poured water on it
so we could go to bed.
On Monday we went to the Georgia Guideposts, we’ve been reading about them for some time.
Some people call them the US Stonehenge.
