Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We have camped here many times and have never been disappointed - a great example of how good a local park can be. Excellent sites and facilities (wifi is poor though) but we do notice a few downgrades. One, and another reviewer mentioned this, what is the point of posting strong rules if you do not take measures to enforce them? There is a 5 mph speed limit posted but apparent long term guests and even park staff fly through here fast enough to spread dust everywhere. Two, the beach area on the lake has several NO PETS signs posted, but we saw almost daily people with their dogs in the water. So, a lot of rules, but very little enforcement - that needs improving. Also, we noticed grass had not been cut in some time on this visit and many people, though no fault of the park, do not clean up after their dogs, and the park would be wise to offer waste bags for this purpose. Still, this is a good park and we'd recommend it - just needs a bit more "policing" and attention to detail. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the better KOA's we have stayed in - very clean park with a friendly and helpful staff, and there is a big staff which explains the rather hefty cost, in addition to the ideal location for seeing the ever popular Charleston. Kamp K-9 for dogs is wonderful and a dog lover's treat. Still, we could not help thinking 65 bucks for a back in with no sewer (and next to a storage) was quite overpriced. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Mt. Pleasant itself has boomed in the last decade and there is plenty to see and do - Charleston is only minutes away.

Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time here and we were a bit disappointed - the location and beach are wonderful but the campground seems a bit of a mess - why are cabins and tents mixed right in with rv sites? We had a loud cabin group right next to our site and the playground was next to us as well, and even though it was marked closed after sunset, parents allowed kids to play until well past midnight - not cool - and staff was no where to be seen patrolling the camp while we were here - lots of kids roaming unattended and - granted, it was a very crowded holiday weekend - the restrooms were filthy. Strongly recommend keeping rv sites apart from tent and cabin folks. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Easily one of the best state parks, in any state, we have ever camped in, and I find it hard to believe anyone would have something negative to say; it rained most of our stay here for Christmas but that did not stop the park, campground and restrooms from looking immaculate at "all" times, or the staff from being super friendly and attentive to all guests' needs and questions. The physical layout of Henderson Beach is a model of its kind - truly, there is not one bad site in the campground and privacy is insured as each site is surrounded by foliage. A neighbor is not really visible at all from another site. It's a little sad to see the overly developed areas of Destin taking over the dunes, but this park is an oasis of beauty amid the touristy aspects of the town. Fabulous boardwalk from campground to beach. By far, this campground was the highlight of our stay in Destin. Would give more than 10 stars if possible. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A gem of a park: our best SC state park experience so far. Park is well maintained and very crowded (reserve early) but sites have enough space between them to keep one from feeling overcrowded. Beach is beautiful and access is excellent from campground. The gorgeous and very interesting Brookgreen Gardens is across the street and this alone has lured us into booking again soon. Only one caveat prevents us from giving this a perfect 10: no 50 amp service for larger rigs and in the bad summer heat in June many sites were not putting out even a full 30 amps (measured 25-27 on some days). This is not our first experience with this problem in a SC state park; the state badly needs to update its electrical infrastructure in all parks. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Our favorite park. It's always immaculately groomed and maintained, and we don't mind those often complained about speedbumps at all (controls the riff raff population). Dog friendly and our four dogs consider it home away from home. Easy access to gorgeous Charleston and Kiawah Island: so much to do in the area. One pet peeve / complaint but it concerns guests, not the park. Although owners strive to insure folks handle and clean up after their pets, shame on those guests who repeatedly let their pre-teen and younger children walk their dogs around the campground. Ever see a young child clean up a dog's waste? That ain't gonna happen, so be reasonable parents! We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tanger Woods, Dorchester, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent three days here only because it was conveniently located next to Francis Beidler Forest, an Audubon sanctuary and well worth a visit, but many a camper will simply turn around and leave upon first viewing this campground-with zero "curb appeal" as it is simply a treeless/shadeless open field with twelve pull through sites. We were the only guests other than two men who lived there. In a nutshell, the place reeks of neglect; grass does not appear to have been mowed in months, possibly years. True, they offer full hook ups, but no restrooms. We had to remove ticks from ourselves and our dogs after walking the premises. There is NOTHING to do in park itself, and this is worth no more than an overnight stay while in transit to some place else. Owners need to visit a few other RV parks to have a point of reference for how a campground CAN look! We camped at Tanger Woods in a Fifth Wheel.
