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!

This campground is close to Charleston. It has lots of different types of sites to choose from. We had a pull thru site with shade. Our RV was on a concrete pad. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

This is a large RV and tenting campground. Very pretty grassy area surrounded with large trees. I would have rated this park higher except the WI FI is difficult to access and at times completely unavailable for access even though the park is not even half full!! And there are numerous speed bumps on the main road within the park. The swimming pool is at the front of the park facing a very busy highway. Sites are either grass or gravel. Our site is very broad and the site next to us is not. Their picnic table sits right next to our sewer hookup. The campers we have met here are warm and friendly. Owners live on the premises and front office staff are very friendly. There are no planned activities. The park is relatively close to Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visited Patriot's Point and toured a Viet Nam military camp re-creation, toured the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier, a destroyer and a diesel submarine. A full day.

This is a well established campground with a variety of sites. Most sites are pull throughs and level. We were in a 32 ft trailer and we had plenty of room. However it is in a very busy area that has grown up around them. It is very difficult to get in and out of. Traffic is heavy and so is the noise level. The laundry room is very small with as many campers as they have. If you stay any length of time and need to do laundry find one outside but not the one directly across the street. That laundry place is a pig sty. As with any campground the WiFi is hit and miss depending on the time of day. We used our AT&T hotspot most of the time. It does have a fenced in dog park. The grounds have a lot of trees and it is pleasant to walk around in. Too many trees for our satellite. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You are close to some very nice plantation tours. Also lots of shopping close by as well.

Great campground located minutes from downtown Charleston. However, we have camped for YEARS and never been taken over by ants as we did within hours of arriving at this campground. We literally fought with ants all week! Loved the amount of roads in this campground for bike riding. We enjoyed the pool, but hated that it was such a far walk from the back section of the campground to the pool by the highway (which made for pretty loud noises while trying to relax at the pool). We are glad we stayed here for our time in Charleston, but will probably never return. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects weekly rate.

"Poor" rating reflects the quality adjusted for pricing. Good Sam needs to review its standards for applying "Top Rated Park" status for RV campgrounds. Having been to 28 states and three times as many RV parks over the past year, most of which were high quality parks, this park is at the top of the list for "overpriced destinations"

The RV pads were either busted up concrete, busted up concrete with gravel, or in some cases gravel. Many spaces had standing water. Workers not really friendly, and office staff only slightly better as well as unable to provide information without direction to talk to "someone else." Four washing machines and two dryers in a dirty room for such a large park is ludicrous. And, very inadequate during heavy travel season.

It is one of the very few parks we will not return to for any reason, except to drive on by while traveling Highway 17. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are new campers and prefer State Parks whenever possible. That said, State Parks often have more limited services. The campsites here are fairly exposed, but, not terribly close together. All the hook up options here worked flawlessly, including the cable and the internet - a big plus. Staff is extremey friendly and helpful. LP prices are the cheapest around. We spent a week here. It's the closest park to downtown Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The reception will give you a sheet with detailed directiions to nearly everything you could need. Very helpful!

Large park with full hookups. Fairly quiet although highway nearby can be noisy if wind is coming from it. Only used this as a short fill in on a trip. Seems overpriced compared to others in the area. And be careful, someone in the park has a radar gun and phones the gate if you move too fast on park roads, in spite of numerous speed bumps. Won't be on our favorites list. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This was my first time at a "RV resort" park and I wasn't impressed. Nothing to do, no trails to hike, you hear a lot of traffic zooming by on the road on the back section of the property and the construction company next door starts early in the mornings. They charge for fire rings and you can only have fire rings at select spots. This is a flat piece of land with utilities basically. Clean showers/RR's and 50 amp service worked good, staff was friendly and the place was kept clean, I'll give them that. I'm winterized, so I didn't use the water nor the sewer system, but appeared to be at all the sites. It's just not my type of campground (ok, "resort"), I think the state and county parks are more cost effective and a better value in general that offer more. I won't return, if I need a "stop over" because of going to point A to B, I'll find a Wal-Mart and save 45 bucks, but that's just me. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground to visit Charleston. The sites are level long and wide enough to not be cramped. The bathhouse is very clean. You can find site in either sun or shade. Good paved interior roads with gravel sites. Although it is a commercial campground the feel is more like a state park. Not a lot of amenities but good for a stopover to visit to Charleston. We would definitely stay here again in our motorhome. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This park has about 20 speed bumps between the entrance and our site. Ridiculous! If driving down the road isn't bad enough on your stuff - just wait till you bounce around in this place. I do not appreciate the added abuse on my coach. The site was OK. Grass and soft ground. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
