Beautiful level campground. Well kept and clean. Nice size sites. Good cable TV. Did not try the WiFi. Far enough out of the city to be comfortable, close enough to drive in for the tourist thing. Highly recommend for 3-4 days while just traveling. Saw a few permanents but they were well kept and hard to distinguish from passing-through people. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Hwy 17 into Charleston is busy. Downtown old Charleston confusing to get around in and parking hard to find so give it a little extra time and relax the best you can.

Beautiful setting among oak trees. There is a fishing pond and pool. There is a playground with a life size chess game on the lawn. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to the historic plantations of Charleston. Easy drive into the city as well. Nearby restaurants, gas station, car wash and grocery store.

This is a beautiful park. The roads are paved and the sites are level gravel. Everything is meticulously maintained. Cable TV and wi-fi worked well and we were able to get almost as many more channels with the antenna. The laundry was small (4 washers and 2 dryers) but was clean and everything worked. We liked the fact that recycling containers were available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would love to stay here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to Charleston but would not recommend driving in downtown. There is a free shuttle and it is definitely the way to see the town. Patriot Point is very interesting with an aircraft carrier, destroyer and submarine that can be toured (fairly expensive but worth it). Also, the boat trip to Fort Sumter leaves from here.

We were traveling with Adventure Caravans on a paid tour so I am not certain about the nightly rate.
I really liked this park, except for two things: the traffic on the highway makes it very difficult to get in and out of the park, and the speed bumps in the park are jarring for a big rig, even at low speeds. There are several loops with lots of grass and open areas. There is a large, grassy dog run. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This large commercial campgound has just about everything a camper could want: large spaces, full hookups, level sites, propane, friendly staff, etc. It is on U.S. 17, resulting in some road noise for anyone sleeping with open windows. Also, a few trains can be faintly heard during the night. Oak trees abound but many sites are satellite-friendly. Sand fleas and mosquitoes were present early in the evening. The owners have put up six WiFi sites but internet access was sporadic during times of heavy use. Most pads are sand but a few are concrete. Our sandy spot was level. Park is a 10-mile drive away from historic downtown Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tour buses, horse-drawn carriages and pedicabs abound but a self-directed walking tour can be the best way to experience the dense old town. Don't miss the government ferry to Fort Sumter National Monument. Touring Fort Moultrie is less exciting for anyone who is not into the history of coastal fortifications. Good food at Gaulart & Maliclet, a relatively cheap fast french foot restaurant downtown with bar stool seating, and Swig & Swine, smoked barbecue 7 miles east of the campgrounds.

Stopped on the way back home for 2 days to explore Charleston. The campsite was gravel and level. They have a large dog run for our k9 companion. The cable is clear and has too many channels to list. This campground has the best wifi I have ever used while camping. Plenty to do and see in the area. We would camp here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stay when visiting Charleston and the young man in the office was so wonderful to work with. He helped us extend our stay another night. The only downside is not the campground, but Route 17 is horrible. It is very congested and getting onto the road out of the campground can be trying. Going right is a little better, but heading out and going left is quite hard. The congestion is caused by over building of homes, apartments and condos without improving the roads. We won't be returning. Another twist...called the Mt. Pleasant KOA since it is closer to our family. Their posted rates of $51 turned into $71 and so we returned to Oak Plantation. We've visited this campground about 3 or 4 times and it is great except for the speed bumps. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with large gravel sites and grass between sites.

One BIG complaint: After not being able to connect to the park's "high speed Internet" on any of their routers, we went to the office to inquire. The first question was, "what phone do you have", response "Apple". We were then told that they "block" Apple phones and iPads! We will not return for that reason alone. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

What a huge park! The staff in the office were friendly and helpful. The site we had was a large pull-thru with gravel patio area, and getting in and out with our 40ft RV was a breeze. However, getting to the site was a very bumpy ride....there were at least 13 speed bumps that we had to go over to get to our site. The park location is great for getting to the city, but does have a very busy road to cross first. The dog park, laundry facilities, and swimming pool were quite a distance from us, but thankfully we didn't use them in our short stay. (It was way too cold for the pool!) We were able to walk our dog around our RV area, and had trash cans close by for dumping waste. We had good Wifi and local television channels. We would return if ever that way again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Sumter and strolling downtown were great and only about 20 minutes travel time.

Very nice park, close to all amenities. Some of the sites are close together but there is a good selection of open sights also. The park is clean, Wifi is off and on, good cable, has a nice pool and a large dog park. The staff are friendly and seem to show pride in their park. There is a 10 mph speed limit in the park and is strictly enforced by the owner. (Good for him!). We stayed on a full service back in site at the back of the park and the only negative thing is that it can be noisy there as a major road is nearby. We will stay here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
