We stayed at this campground for nearly three years so I've seen a lot here. The majority of the guests are long term so you won't see a lot of coming a going. The park is small, about 30 or so sites, but it is well maintained. The owners are great people, very fair and friendly. Just follow the rules and treat them with respect. You'll be fine. The park is pet friendly as long as you maintain control of your animal and pick up after it. But that's pretty standard wherever you go. Fain Campground is located next to I-26 which makes it a great location for food, shopping, etc. It also makes it a little louder than what you might be used to - sort of like having the interstate running through your front yard (and the train tracks running through your back yard). Well, and then there's the airport and Air Force base with planes flying overhead, but, seriously, you get used to it. If noise bothers you, bring ear plugs or a fan - many of the guests here use fans for white noise. It really isn't that big of a deal. If you can get past the noise, though, it is a great place to stay. Rent includes water, sewer, and utilities. If you want wifi or cable, Comcast will hook you up, but it isn't provided. However, there is an Xfinity hotspot nearby and you can often connect to that. You probably won't be able to plax Xbox, but you can check email and Facebook a little. You are really close to downtown Charleston, maybe a half hour and about that same driving time to Sullivan's Beach (maybe a little longer). It's a nice place to stay, just for the night, or long term. We camped at Fain's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
There are two Walmarts within just a few miles (probably 7-8 minutes) from the campground, as well as Tanger outlet, just about every fast food joint you can imagine, a movie theater, Earth Fare (9 miles), an urgent care (6 miles), and a 24 hour convenience store (less than 1 mile). Oh, and Panera delivers here! From around April to November, there are several farmer's markets in the area.
