This was a very nice park. The roads were well-maintained and the sites were spacious and level. The staff is very helpful and friendly and do a good job handling things at the park. The park is quite large but there is only one laundry room with four washers and two driers in the front of the property - another laundry room in the back of the property would be really good. The pool is quite nice and is located at the front of the property, so if you are in the back section, it is quite a walk to the pool. The location of the park is great - 15 minutes from Charleston and the beach. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, clean, spacious campground that is well maintained and quiet. We stayed for a week in the back section.

Pros:

-Clean and quiet

-Spacious park that never feels crowded

-Long pull through sites on a level white gravel base

-Drains quickly after rain

-Good mix of long-term and short-term guests

-On site propane refill

-Publix grocery store just down the street

Cons:

-Lots of trees for some spots. We had to move to a new spot so our dish would see clear sky.

-Back section is a long drive from the front of the park (where the pool and entry/exit are).

-Left turn into and out of the campground is practically impossible and is dangerous at times.

-Driving to Charleston or Patriot's Point takes a minimum of 30 minutes and close to an hour during busy times of the day. Plan on 60-90 minutes of driving time (or more) each day if you want to go to Charleston or the beaches.

-Other than the Publix, not much within a 10 minute radius of the campground.

In spite of all the negatives, we had considered returning here and staying longer - perhaps a month. However, the biggest negative, and the reason we will not return, is the horrible hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg) smell in the water. I have smelled hot springs in Yellowstone that were fresher than this! In less than a week, we could see black marks in our toilet from the water and by the end of the week the smell was so bad we didn't want to use the shower! The office said "its safe to drink, welcome to the Low Country." Even if it is safe, which I question given the intensity of the odor, it isn't safe for plumbing and its just gross on top of that.

This horrible water is the reason for the 2 star rating I gave for cleanliness (the rest of the part was very clean). It is the first RV campground where I would not use the campground water. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a last minute decision for us to stay. We were headed to Patriot's Point and this campground was right off the main highway. The worst part of the campground was the turn off of the main highway. Once you get past that the campground itself was very clean with great staff. The woman at the front desk was very helpful with finding us information on Patriot's Point and giving us suggestions for parking the rv there. The sites were mostly level and have a decent amount of space between them. Everyone who was staying there seemed very friendly. It was very quiet. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, clean CG. Our level, FHU site was a combination of grass/gravel. Not all are shaded, but we did have some shade. Friendly, easy check-in.
Close to grocery store, pharmacy, food. About 10 miles or so from Charleston. Plenty of cable channels. WiFi went from strong to weak depending on time of day & use. Used my own at times. Good Verizon reception. We would stay here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

We were on site H6. This is a beautiful RV park. Wooded with paved roads. The site was gravel/grass. We had a picnic table. The sites are very wide and long. Great location to tour the Charleston area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Loved the Charleston Tea Plantation. Take the free tour and tasting. Downtown Charleston and the Waterfront Park area are terrific. We parked at the visitor center on meeting street and walked but there are free trolleys that you can ride all overe. Kiawah Island Beach was delightful.

This park is beautifully landscaped & well cared for. Sites have full hookups and are level. Satellite was easy to get. There are plenty of garbage cans & they do recycle. There are 2 bath houses but only one laundry with 4 washers & 2 dryers. They were reasonably priced but there just are not enough machines. The park is conveniently located to sites to see, the Angel Tree, Fort Sumter, the aquarium. We would definitely stay again since we now know how to get around the traffic. If you have to turn left to get into the park forget it. There is a short left turn lane but the park is right after an extremely busy intersection with backups of sometimes close to a mile. The park was built in 1960 when it was a dirt road. Now with the building of multiple subdivisions the traffic is impossible. The owner told us how to get where we were going by turning right out of the park & taking the road behind the park. It made life much easier. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff member that greeted us was nice, allowing us to change sites to one with more shade. That was about the best part of our visit. They claim to be close to Charleston, and while that might technically be accurate, this location is not the most convenient. It is nearly impossible to turn left out of the campground toward Charleston, as there is constant traffic along the busy four lane highway. Speaking of the four lane highway, don't be fooled by the picture of the pool on the website. It's taken from a creative angle that doesn't show it's actually about 50 feet from the same busy highway. And to top it off, there's no bathroom near the pool and it closes at 7:30 PM every night. Have fun explaining that to your kids. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was average at best. The only other staff encounters were an overzealous lady running out of the office telling us to slow down, the campground owner riding around in his golf cart stink eyeing everyone, and the unfriendly girl in the office at checkout who rolled her eyes when I couldn't find my parking pass. Thanks for asking how our stay was by the way. If you're planning a visit to Charleston and any of the more popular beaches, I would definitely suggest finding a different campground. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Easy entrance coming from the north. Follow web site directions. Use Johns Island on your GPS, not Charleston. Paved interior roads with lots of speed bumps. Sites were level gravel with picnic tables. Park is very well maintained. Good cable & wifi. Room for the toad on the side of the coach in front of the picnic table. Some road noise but nothing really bad. Site drained well after a good downpour. We will definitely stay here again when visiting the area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

It's almost impossible to turn left to get into Charleston during morning rush hour. You need to turn right and turn into the gas station to get out on a side street. Traffic going into town is very busy and slow even during the middle of the day. Plan enough time, especially if taking the ferry to Ft. Sumpter. We enjoyed a visit to the Charleston Tea Plantation. Had lunch at the Oyster House on Market and shared 4 oyster/shrimp appetizers. Wonderful and great service!

We stay at this park several times a year when we visit Charleston because it is a nice, clean, well maintained park convenient to the city. The roads are paved and sites are spacious, level gravel/grass with a picnic table. There are many tall shade trees but most sites can access satellite. I would rate the park higher but the wifi is very bad and I hate the up to 12 annoying speed bumps. The park is very difficult to access from Hwy 17 coming from the south and it is unsafe to exit the park going north on Hwy 17 due to heavy traffic most hours of the day. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Oak Plantation for six nights while visiting the area. Overall, it was nice. We had a gravel pad, which was very level. There are lots of trees and the grounds are well kept. Ask for a shady spot! There are two major issues that the park needs to address. First, the pool is right on the highway and is quite far from most of the lots. LOTS of road noise and traffic makes for an interesting swimming experience. It would be nice if the park invested in a new pool that is more centrally located to the RV spaces. Also, there is no restroom at the pool. The closest one is a bit of a hike. This isn't good for small children or older adults. Even with those issues, we would camp here again. It is the closest park to historic Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park close to Charleston. Charleston in general has a lot of traffic, the road to the park is no different. We stayed for 6 days and really enjoyed this place. Our pad was concrete and level, but many different pads, some gravel, some grass, be sure to ask if concerned. The pool is right by the noisy highway and was in need of more chemicals, very cloudy with a film, probably because there are no restrooms by the pool. Lots of trees and the grounds are really pretty; ask for a shaded spot. Grocery store very close by as well as gas. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The food in Charleston is AMAZING! Favorite restaurant was "Leon's Fine Poultry and Oysters". We stumbled upon it by the Citadel but were so happy with it. Out of the way but worth it. Also "Hominy Grill" was delicious, great atmosphere.

The park is immaculate, which is why the bath houses were such a disappointment. Easy pull through sites for big rigs (and there were lots of them!), many with concrete pads. Wifi hit and miss depending on others, basic cable and close neighbors. Bath house in desperate need of renovation, broken tiles with mold and mildew in shower, poorly lit sink area and toilet stalls small, dark and uncomfortable. Sky lights have spider webs, dead bugs and filth. Great park if you have a comfortable bathroom in your camper. Bring a bleach cleaner if your in a shady site, picnic table full of mold and mildew too! We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a large park with easy access to Charleston and Fort Sumter. Sites were well maintained, fairly level, with a nice distance between sites. The park grounds are beautiful and keep clean and trimmed. Lots of beautiful moss laden trees offer plenty of shade. Everyone was friendly and even with the number of rigs, it was quite and peaceful. The site layout was very well thought out and made for easy in and out. We would stay here again for sure. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We experienced our first Segway tour of Mount Pleasant and had a ball. There are lots of great places to eat and the ferry ride and tour of Fort Sumter was fantastic. We were the first to arrive at the Fort on the day we visited and I was given the honor along with about 25 others to raise the flag over the Fort for the day. The Park Ranger gave a great talk and set the tone for us to pledge allegiance - a moving experience.
