An Outdoor Escape For the Whole Family Filled with Luxury, Comfort, & Fun

Over the past 10 years, Southern Concepts has developed a one-of-a-kind property called Duck Bottom. Hundreds of properties were carefully evaluated and many relationships with private land owners were formed before we found this unique property rich in history. The property is a spacious 1,500 acres along 3.5 miles of the Wateree River located in Horatio, South Carolina near the charming town of Camden. The property is a mix of beautifully managed pine forests, lowlands, swamp, ponds, mixed grasses, fields, and wildlife food plots. Duck Bottom has established itself as a very popular, private recreational property known for its exclusivity and well balanced offerings for family and guests, corporate retreats, and sporting activities. It is truly a sanctuary for families and
entertaining clients and friends.

All About

Duck Bottom

Our primary goal is to preserve the natural beauty of the property and to protect it from future development with a conservation easement. The lodging on the property is luxuriously rustic with a very comfortable main house and outbuildings. Duck Bottom features an award-winning food and beverage program. The property offers well-rounded activities such as shooting, a wide array of hunting, fishing, river recreation, nature enjoyment, outdoor activities, culinary classes, and wellness amenities. We take a leadership role in the conservation of South Carolina’s magnificent wet lands all while successfully creating one of the most unique private clubs around.

Inside the

Property History

The history behind South Carolina unravels the beginning of this country and Duck Bottom sits in the midst of it all.  From the American Revolution to the Civil War, the property is filled with untold secrets of older times.  As you stroll through these mystical grounds, you’re forced to humbly pause and breathe in all the life that left their footprints before you.

Duck Bottom


With roughly 1,500 acres to explore and enjoy, we have identified several intriguing aspects here that must not be overlooked. From the exquisite front entrance all the way to the edge of the north end of the property, there are about 27 miles of manicured roads and trails filled with excitement at each turn and bend.
