All paved roads, combination shell/pea gravel type site conditions and site #113 was pretty level with picnic table and fire ring. A big storm had come through before our arrival and site seemed it was a 1/4 of a lake and very saturated (other sites were the same....campground is close to the water table), but we managed through this and all is good. Wi-Fi was very good, ATT cell strength was decent. 50 Amp service was very good, clean restrooms and showers with hot water. Full hookup seemed to be at each site, however we didn't use the water or sewer as we are winterized. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle is a good value (20.00 round trip for two) into Charleston, only runs 9am for drop off and 4pm pickup, but if the campground is slow as it was at our visit, we were told we could call if we wanted to return early. I would stay here again, for sure, but my only negative is the cost we paid during off season as there is nothing at the park that is open, other than the store. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.
Walk Charleston.....great city.......

Love this park. We were here before Christmas when they have their great light show going on. One of the best. Our dog loves the large dog park with a lake for swimming or splashing. Trees can give satellite TV systems problems so be careful choosing a site. Been here several times and will be back. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Entry into park and campground looks like you are entering a gated community and looks great. Personnel were all very very nice and helpful. Had a great camp store with wood for sale. We were here at Festival of Lights time so make sure you are back in park before 5:00 pm on weekends or you will be waiting in line. Public starts lining up @ 4:00 pm to get in. With all the work on the entry area I would expect more appearance work for the sites. Most sites look rough and need clean up. Our site had a gully running thru it right where you would place your jacks. Gravel in the sites would be a great improvement. The ground is hard but your parking on dirt in all the sites. Most of the sites had families with dogs and place is both family and dog friendly. Dog park in the main park area is one of the best I have seen. NO CABLE so use your sat receiver or over the air. WiFi was slow but Verizon Mifi worked great and no issue with cell service. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.
Be back in park before 5:00 pm on weekends during the Festival of Lights time. Downtown is only 5 miles away but afternoon rush hour traffic to James Island starts at around 4:30 pm Some people were saying it took them 45 minutes to get back from downtown during afternoon traffic. It is backed up for a couple of hours. Melvins Legendary Bar BQ was fantastic.

We have been here in the past. It is a great campground. This is the first time we were here during the festival of lights which was wonderful. The dog park is also great. Sites are level, water and electric good as is the sewer. The wifi can be slow and there is no cable, but the TV stations come in very clear. A must if you are in the Charleston area!! We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.
Folly Beach ( which the park car pass is valid for entry), Ft. Sumter, downtown Charleston, The Charleston "Market", Patriot's Point, the Citadel, and the historic sites in the city.

This park has everything people would want, including phenomenal bike trails. At Christmas time, the park has a nightly drive-through light show that was great. The spaces were large enough and everyone working at the park seemed super nice. We definitely want to return and spend a week here. This ranks in the top 3 parks we've seen out of hundreds we've stayed at. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We've been staying yearly for a number of years. Usually for 1 week. Superb park. Maintenance staff (county) have been helpful and friendly. Work Campers always friendly and helpful. Convenient to downtown. Good walking/biking around park. Big off leash dog park. Hard to get reservations during "festival of lights". Try to get there for it. A great light show. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.
Various plantations in the area. See the Tea plantation. Drive to town - park at visitor center and take "Carta" to shopping area. Great walking town.
Visit the Hunley in North Charleston.

The campground at JICP is only one small part of a wonderful facility. We have camped here twice in the past 3 years and will return again. All the attractions for Charleston are less than 4 miles away. Now for the not so pretty side. The traffic between the campground and Charleston can be brutal. Rush hours are a nightmare. Try to plan your arrival before 2 or 3 PM if possible. Store is well stocked and bathhouses are clean but dated. The gravel sites are are heavily wooded and spacious and most drain well. If you like to bike or walk on paved trails this is the place. This is a very well managed very well cared for facility. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Well run county park with excellent access to downtown Charleston 25 minutes away. We used a block on each front wheel in addition to the leveling jacks to level our rig. Utilities worked well. Wifi was so weak we could not use. Verizon mifi and cell worked well. Sites are well spaced and ours had some privacy, but not all do. Be aware that there are some "buddy sites" that are very close together. These are to be avoided unless you like camping close to a buddy. Park is a little worn around the edges, and there is some significant puddling and water on roads when it rains. Quiet most of the time, especially after 9:00 p.m. We will return.

Beautiful setting and park. Gravel/grass sites easy to level with jacks. Good WiFi, We asked for site to receive Direct tv and we got it. Friendly staff and overall well kept. Gates locked at night but PW is given to open gate for after 8 pm reentry. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.Undo

While touring Charleston this is a great campground to stay at! All sites have full hookups and the bathrooms were clean. The left half of the park has more private sites and has several pull-throughs for large motorhomes. All sites were level and the volunteers do a great job making you feel welcome.

Our second-favorite campground. Spacious, tree-shaded campsites, which we really appreciated. This campground is convenient to Charleston and Folly Beach. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Great website where you can view a picture of each campsite and choose your site when you make your reservation. We chose site 17 which backs up to a pond and it was a great site. The sites are large, shady and for the most part private. If you are camping with a friend, they have several sites next to each other that connect. Closest park to downtown Charleston. Great amenities such as hiking trails, water park and dog park. Close to Folly Beach and about 20 minutes away from Kiawiah Island Park where they have an off-leash dog beach with free admission for campground guests. We camped at James Island County Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This was our second stay at this campground. It is in a great location to visit Charleston. The roads in the campground are in good shape. The one thing I do not like about this campground is the poor drainage in the sites. We stayed at sites 47 and 49. I think that there much better sites but they book up. Mosquitoes are bad and I find them to be worse here than at beach campgrounds. One nice thing about this campground is the huge dog play area! So much fun for our dogs.

Overall, this is a GREAT campground! One of our favorites, as we have been here several other times. Check-in would have been a little easier however the guy behind the counter could not comprehend that my brother and I booked our sites together and I wanted to pay for my site separately and my brother pay for his. The guy seemed to go into shutdown mode when he became frustrated. Finally, I paid for both sites and worked it out later with my brother. The sites were reserved a year in advance. During that time the park increased their rates, which they charged us the new rate, not the rate the sites were booked at. The campground does have a store and is well stocked when compared to most. They do offer propane, firewood for $6/bundle, and bike rental. There is a grocery store not far from campground should you forget something. The park does have entertainment on select weekends and a pancake breakfast on Sunday mornings. The interior roads of the campground are all paved and easy to navigate even for big rigs. Each site is packed gravel. Our site, 25, did have standing water during rain and remained wet after. Most all of the sites are level and easy to back into. The bath houses was very clean and well stocked each time I visited. Wi-Fi is available but at times I was unable to get on. AT&T and 4G are usable with 1 - 2 bars. There is a water park and splash pad, both open to the public and can get a little crowded on the weekends. If you camp, discount tickets are available at the office.

*** PLEASE NOTE THIS FIRST PART: If you drive a bigger rig be careful if you are heading towards Charleston on Maybank/Hwy 700 (per the campground directions). The right turn from Marybank Hwy onto Riverland Dr is SHOCKINGLY TIGHT. I can't believe the campground directs people this way. The curb is all broken up from people going up and over the curb so damaging a tire is not out of the question. The light pole also has high and low scrapes on it so some people have even hitting the telephone pole. This is a VERY DANGEROUS turn so if you can find another way, please do. The campground is very nice. Lots of open space areas, trees, and bike trails. Convenient to everything. Staff is friendly. Wifi was okay to decent most of the time, but we did have to call a few times during rain and tell them to reset their wifi (each time it did work and the wifi came back on). They didn't always believe me that the reset would fix it, but it worked each time. They need to get this problem figured out. Would stay again.
