History and horses
Camden is rich in South Carolina history. As the oldest inland town in South Carolina, there are almost three hundred years' worth of things to see and do here. British General Cornwallis was headquartered in Camden during the American Revolution. You can visit his house and watch a reenactment of a major battle nearby.
When you get tired of touring, maybe you can relax and watch a horse race or polo match. Kershaw County is known as the Steeplechase Capital of the World, and for good reason. The Carolina Cup in the spring and Colonial Cup in the fall are two of the most popular steeplechase horse races anywhere.
There's plenty to keep you occupied indoors and out. Lake Wateree and the Wateree River feature spectacular hunting and camping. The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County and the Steeplechase Museum are right in town. Northeast Columbia, bustling with shopping and entertainment, is a 25-minute hop down U.S. Highway 1. Far enough for comfort. Close enough for convenience.
