We called for reservation for a week, and were ASSURED by the Christian owner on the phone that ALL sites had Wi-Fi. So, we made a reservation. (We have an ebay business & need internet access). After we arrived, we were told that we could only get Wi-Fi, IF we purchased a pull through site, (which was an additional 10 per day). We felt deceived but had no choice, so we reluctantly signed. Well, guess what? Still NO Wi-Fi! Other campers were complaining and walking round the property with laptops, like diving rods trying to get a signal. The owner then tried to sell a device to us for an additional $60. How very Christian of her. BTW, we declined. After 3 days a new message was posted on the big sign out front saying: "Jesus is the best wireless connection." I had to pick my jaw up off the ground. We had lost money, because we couldn't conduct business, while we were here. Boy, talk about rubbing salt in an open wound. Though its old, I will say that it is pretty here. It is a rip off: we couldn't wait to leave. This is a bait & switch place, if I've EVER seen one. WHAT a nightmare! We camped at Woodsmoke Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This place had good reviews, which is why we choose to stay. It's under new management, & now it seems to be more trailer park, than RV park. The bathhouse, is nice, but isn't cleaned regularly! And, don't count on the cable or internet to work. It's very loud & many dogs run wild, off the leashes. It's not safe for children. The staff is friendly & will inform you of the gossip, whether you want to know, or not. I will say that it's a pretty location & convenient to many things, but I definitely won't stay here again. In fact, we couldn't wait to leave! We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had read some very nice reviews about this place & when we visited, this campground did not disappoint. This is a lovely of a place to stay. Nothing upscale, but it is rustic/(lots of trees) quiet, clean & close to many amenities. It's a great place to relax & enjoy nature. Lots of places to walk and explore. Expect a tight fit when you drive up. The beauty of the place is in all the trees but the spots are a tight fit. Like all beach parks it's sandy and we had to vacuum just about every day but, that's to be expected. Charleston area is just full of things to do & there are lots of shops and restaurants. So I'd say don't do that unless you're staying for a couple of weeks. Overall, it was one of the best parks that we've visited in a while. We camped at James Island County Park in a Fifth Wheel.
