I have stayed there several years ago. I think it was 1998. It was a wonderful park then. Check out the reviews on this website, RV Park Reviews. I think you will find that that park still rates very high with RVer's.

James Island is a very nice park. Charleston is full of places to see. You could spend a month in that town and not see everything. You will find a lot of information on town from people in park. A number of hits on this place on this board and under RV Park Reviews. Have a good time.

We were there last week for a few days and it was great. Last time we were there was 9 years ago. Still a nice park, lots of paved bike paths. Fire pits at each site and sites are nicely spaced many with vegetation between sites. A shuttle will take you to the Charleston Visitor's Center for a small fee and pick you up later.

We found Charleston to be very easy to navigate with a 3/4 ton Chevy longbed. Bring quarters for the meters as parking on streetside is plentiful. When you register for the camp, ask the desk for a map of the city. It's of the public transportation system which is not fully operational anymore, but the map is the best one we found. Also check the clubhouse, it has a rack or two of brochures with the tours and cruises of the area.

Plenty to do in the park and outside.

Happy trails. biggrin.gif

We camphosted at James Island for 2 mo in 98. We had a lot of free time and were never bored. Nearby Charleston is a city with a great deal of southern charm, history with mansions, boat trips museums, cultural events, gardens etc., etc. at and from the cg are great bike trails and a great beach a few miles away. You may well want the beach as it could be hot and humid in June. We were there in Nov-Dec.
The y'all come back is very tempting. Enjoy
