The Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center

The Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center

Adjacent to Lake Hartwell, Clemson's Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center provides a unique opportunity for students to enjoy both water and beach activities just a few minutes from the main campus. The Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center is an ideal site for outdoor recreational activity and offers the Clemson community the opportunity to enjoy this area year-round from sunrise to sunset seven days a week.


Several clubs call the Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center home, including the sailing and water ski clubs. Clemson's Outdoor Recreation and Education (CORE) program is also housed at the beach with free day rentals available for canoes and kayaks. Click here for CORE's website and more information. 


Find us at 275 YMCA Circle, Seneca, SC 29678.

Football Parking


We are looking forward to beginning reservations for the 2015 Clemson Football season!  In order to make the reservation system more efficient, we have plans to move to a one-stop online process. We will send you updates as they come and keep you informed of how to proceed with reserving your space for the upcoming football season.

Starting July 1st, we plan to move forward with season pass reservations. Single game reservations will be accepted beginning July 29th. We have created a "Football Parking Listserv" for up-to-date information throughout the year. Please click HERE to add/delete yourself from this listserv.


Join us for Football season! A shuttle service is provided to and from the stadium for all those parking at the Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center. There are 63 RV sites for those wanting to camp the Friday before and stay Saturday night after the game. RVers can reserve sites for the season or on a single game basis. Once the RV sites are full, limited overflow parking is available, but not until gates open on Saturday. Water is available for RVs upon arrival, but NO power is provided - RVs must be self contained. Season passes for general parking are also available.
