We have stayed at this campground a few times each year because it is very convenient to Charleston. The sites are generally very spacious and the park is well maintained. The staff is friendly. The Wifi is very poor. There are an excessive number of very large speed bumps you have to cross to get to your site. The entrance if off a very busy Highway 17 and sometimes hard to get into and out of the park. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a spacious park with tall trees. It is directly off Hwy 17, but this is a very busy road (leads to Charleston) so turning into the park from the west can be a challenge. There are two restroom buildings, a pool close to the road, and a very nice large dog run. Our site was large enough but not level. We camped in a 42-foot motorhome and it took several adjustments to get leveled. There are numerous speed bumps on the main road into the park. Plentiful trash cans are located at the end of each camping road. Office staff was polite and helpful. Distance to downtown Charleston is about 10-12 miles. We would stay here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Publix Market is less than a mile away to the west.

We stayed at Oak Plantation the last few days of December. We were surprised how full the campground was. Check in was fast and the girl at the front was very friendly and helpful. The sites were large. We have a 40ft DP with 4 slides and we were towing a full sized trailer. No problem fitting into our pull through.

The bathrooms were clean. There were rows of trashcans at every street entrance which was great. No stinky dumpsters or holding your trash until the AM.

The campground itself is very quiet. We were there New Years Eve and didn't have noise issues.

The surrounding roads are loud. We were at the end in Q so we could hear cars and car stereos in our main coach area. We have a white noise machine in the bedroom and that worked well for the street noise.

Be prepared for heavy traffic coming and going. The main road is very busy.

There is washers/dryer on site but there was a line when we tried to use it. There is a coin laundry across the street. The patrons were a different crowd then what we are used to but nobody paid any attention to us or bothered us.

The WiFi worked well. Our roof mounted satellite could not get signal. The campground offers free cable and that worked well. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring a fan or white noise machine to block out traffic noise.

We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend. The park was beautiful and had lots of space. The site we were in was a little tight but manageable. There were other grass sites I would ask for next time. Restrooms were old and at the time we went in the toilets were overflowing so we went to the other bathhouse. There was a lot of road noise but we were in Charleston, 15 minutes from downtown, so can't complain too much. I would definitely go back. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited the Middleton Place Plantation and had lunch, shopped on King Street and stopped by the Blind Tiger Pub and ended up at the Holy City Brewing Company which was a definite winner. They had live music, wasn't sure about the neighborhood until we drove back to where the brewery was, then it was o.k.

The speed humps placed on the main road at every row are horrible especially for a 5th wheel where they put a real jar to the back of your neck even coming to a complete stop before going over them. The park is nice and the staff are very friendly. We were assigned a nice pull-thru paved site at the end of the row so we only had an RV on one side and there was a nice space between us. For us the site P1 was not easy for a 34 foot 5th wheel to pull into because there were guide wires on a pole limiting the pull in radius. Placing the 5th wheel on the concrete pad so that we could reach hook ups required the truck to head down an incline to hook and unhook. Others must have had issues with this site because the concrete had multiple deep grooves in it where RVs or hitches had dug into it. Most of the sites did not appear to have as steep of an incline as ours did. We would return but only if assigned a level site with easy access. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 5 nights. The park is clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. They have a great dog park. We had a level pull through site, that is gravel. Water seemed a bit hard, not really a problem for us. Only thing is they are just off US 17, which can be interesting. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We went to the normal tourist locations. There is a covered lot by the visitors center that has spaces for big pickups and small RV's. It is just off St.Marys street.

When downtown have a burger at AC's Bar, it is by the visitors center. We had the Grand-Marneir burger. Excellent!

We stayed her for five days while I was working. It's a really nice park. Large sites. Good utilities and the customer service was great. The only down side is the large speed bumps leading in and out of the park. It rocked the RV and was tedious coming and going during our stay. However, I do understand why they are there. This is one of those parks that I will make a destination in the future. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Charleston, South Carolina! Horse drawn carriage tours, walking history, an aquarium, Fort Sumter, and great restaurants. We're planning to come back for more fun.

The park is very open with large sites. We stayed on a gravel site. Some of the sites are grass. Paved interior roads. The grass sites are nestled under trees. The gravel sites do not have trees. The park is located outside of town but is not far, about 20 minutes, from the downtown area. Staff was friendly and helpful. AT & T cellular signal was good. Did not use their wifi as I used the hotspot on my phone. We would stay here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Annabelle's for lunch. You will have to google it for the address. it is a place that is not advertised, only open for lunch, has a huge local crowd, superior chef and outstanding food. Get there early!

Park itself is beautifully maintained. The site we had was a pull through and spacious, clean and manicured. The staff at check-in were friendly, courteous and welcoming. I was a little annoyed that they require you to "check out", (stop at the office and turn your parking pass in) but the day we left, as soon as we pulled toward the office, a very cheery young lady was there to take the pass from us so we did not need to get out. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable. About 8-10 miles from downtown Charleston. The only negative we have is the park is right on US 17. If you are coming from the south, you have to take a left into the park across 3 lanes of traffic (extremely very busy road). In fact, our GPS took us PASSED the turn, 5 miles down the road so we could maneuver back up 17 to take a right into the park. When we left, we needed to go left out of the park and we sat there over 10 minutes to be able to safely pull out with our tow car. The pool is also situated almost right on 17 at the front of the park. No privacy surrounding the pool (tall shrubs would make a big difference) to shield you from the traffic gawkers. And lastly, the horrible laundry facility! It is located toward the front of the park, a drive by car for anyone more than halfway into the park. There are four washers and TWO dryers! Thats it for 200 campsites! It is in a very small room- impossible for 2 people in there at a time, no place to fold clothes, VERY cramped. Luckily the park was not busy or we would never have got our laundry done. As it was, I had to wait to use the facility. Not sure we would go back, for the most part, the location. A short (.2mile) car trip to grocery store took 20 minutes due to the traffic on 17 and the difficulty getting in an out of the park. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Historic downtown Charleston was lovely.

The campground is nice and clean and well maintained. The 10 mph speed limit is fine, but the speed bumps are crazy! Getting into the park is easier than any of the maps initially showed. However, the traffic is insane! We took a longer route to leave, as it's nearly impossible to make a left turn out of the park. Getting in making a left is no easy task either, but eventually some nice people will leave an opening for you. Most sites have concrete pads and ours was very level. Yes, we would probably stay here again, but hate the very high speed bumps. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Visit Patriots Point! The USS Yorktown was awesome!

About the only game in the area. Paved interior roads with lots of speed humps. Sites are gravel or grass and level. Some sites are open and some shaded. Verizon signal was very good and no problem with satellite TV, because we were in an open site. Free WiFi signal was strong, but bandwidth was very narrow. Could barely load web mail (Gmail). Be very careful of "Nazi" in golf cart patrol. Speed is closely monitored. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

The park was clean and all that, but it has some big drawbacks. First of all, it is located on US-17, which is just a super-busy road during virtually all hours. It is so busy that if you're coming in from the west, you should seriously think about turning left on Bees Ferry Rd at the light, and then taking a right turn on Bluewater Way and winding through the housing development to where it exits onto US-17 east of the resort, and then turning right so you can enter the resort with a right-hand turn without having to cross oncoming traffic.

Second of all, whoever owns the park must have a brother-in-law who's in the speed bump business, because if you end up with a spot near the back, you'll be going over more bumps and tables than you can count.

If you need 50-amp full service, try not to settle for a site near the back to the right of the main access road, as the trees and general area lacks the park-like setting of other sites to the left of the road. Nothing special about the pads, just gravel with more-weed-than-grass surroundings. Lots of ants as well, so have some spray (the staff sent out a maintenance guy to treat the area). We didn't use it, but the swimming pool is right next to the busy highway; just FYI but you'll be on display to all of the passing vehicles.

We needed Cummins to service our genset, so be advised that before they (or any other vendor) comes out, they need to have proof of liability insurance, or else they'll be turned away at the gate. There's a nearby Costco and Walmart, plus other shops and restaurants nearby. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby Magnolia Plantation is a must-see, as is the historic housing area north of White Point Garden.

Stayed here five nights. Camped with some friends from Charleston and Alabama Very nice park Would stay here again when in Charleston. Interior roads were somewhat narrow but with care I was able to make all the turns. Getting into and out of the park is difficult do to the heavy traffic on hwy 17. I found that by turning right out of the park, then turning right at the next intersection and basically going around the block solved the problem, Most of the traffic problem is caused by the left turning traffic at the intersection backing up, We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Old Charleston Market, Charleston Harbor Cruise, Patriot Point, Aircraft carrier. Lots of good restaurants. Lots of seafood buffets.
