Why Camden, SC

One of South Carolina’s fastest growing towns, and the “Steeplechase Capital of the World”, Camden is dedicated to an enhanced quality of life.

Legendary for its equestrian history, this vibrant but affordable community features southern charm and a relaxing atmosphere and takes great pride in its 250 years of heritage. 

With tree-lined streets and a pedestrian-centered environment, Camden's green spaces offer a level of progressive sophistication usually reserved for much larger cities. It sets the bar for small-town class throughout the entire state of South Carolina.

Camden’s Quaker Graveyard dates back to colonial America, but a rich and seasoned history is just part of this enchanting town’s enviable character. 


Its claim to fame is the Carolina Cup. Drawing up to 70,000 tourists per year, “The Cup” highlights Camden’s affinity for equestrian sporting events, which include races and shows throughout the year. 

Camden offers more than sport however. Its charming downtown shops and restaurants are matched by plenty of expansive parks and scenic walkways. 

Also unique for its thriving arts scene, Camden hosts countless cultural activities throughout the year including concerts, wine tastings and historical reenactments, providing a wealth of enriching entertainment.

Don’t let Camden’s humble size fool you. With a developing infrastructure, expanding tourist trade and plenty of artistic venues, Camden promises much and delivers more.

You’ll see when you get to Camden, “Where Past is Present.”
