Always something to do in this community! Free activities for families with children. Sports and recreation is available, but usually with a fee. Plenty of free public parks and greenspaces.

Not much crimes, very growing community, more stores are coming established. Everyone is very friendly!
Camden is a small historic town, somewhat in the middle of South Carolina. Road construction takes too long and detours just led to more roads in construction.
