The Historic Camden Campus is a combination of living history, historic preservation, and museum exhibits. The Revolutionary War Visitors Center, the Colonial Artisan Market, McCaa’s Tavern,and the Nature Trail are free to the public. We do ask for a small donation to visit the historic homes and living history portion of the campus. We also provided guide battlefield tours.
Self Guided Tours
Self guided tours are included as part of site admission. Self guided tours include exterior access to the buildings on site and a site map to help visitors navigate the grounds and provide info on each feature. Site admission can be purchased Monday-Saturday 10am-4:30pm and Sunday 1pm-4pm.
Historic Camden offers two types of guided tours on campus. Each Monday-Saturday at 10:30am and 12:30pm we offer a guided tour of the Kershaw-Cornwallis House, which includes a number of artifacts and period furnishings. Each Wednesday-Sunday we offer an additional tour at 2pm which includes the Kershaw-Cornwallis, as well as the Craven House and McCaa’s Tavern.
Battlefield Tours are offered each Wednesday-Sunday at 2pm. It is recommended that anyone interested in a guided tour please call to assure availability. We like for visitors to know that the battlefield tour is entirely outdoors so weather can sometimes affect or prevent tours of the location.
The Historic Camden Foundation is not state or federally funded so we relay on individual donations. Even a small donation truly helps. So please send a gift and make a difference!
