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!

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.

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 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.

This is a great park. The grass sites are spacious and appear to be reserved for big rigs. It was small, compared to others. We had a concrete pad site. Quiet, considering how close it is to Hwy 17. The Wi-Fi service is good. Cats are allowed to roam free. Will stay there again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Charleston is a great city, so many things to do. Golf is near by and inexpensive.

This is a beautiful campground in a nice area. Staff was friendly. We stayed here 3 nights and it was close to Charleston for us to easily visit. WiFi was great and there was cable TV with many channels. Close to many sites. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is well located as a base for visiting Charleston. It is well organized with easy in and out of sites. Our site was a pull through. Although there is a pool it is at the front of the campground and did not appear to be well used. The staff were friendly and very helpful in suggesting places to visit and eat. The only negative to the park is that it is very difficult to turn into the park if you have to cross the Savannah Highway. The highway is extremely busy and we discovered motorists were not that willing to allow you to cross the highway. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If using a GPS to locate this campground ensure you enter the city at John's Island. This way you will be making an easy right turn into the park. Whereas if you enter the city at Charleston you will have to make a left turn across the Savannah Highway.

Rates reflects Good Sam, after taxes. Absolutely big rig friendly, we were in the "G" Section, and there was enough length to park with the car still attached...pull-through, yes you can. We had nothing but friendly service, packages were received and we were called when they got there. Staff was great on Charleston information, and on suggestions for beating the traffic, and yes it is an issue, especially making a left turn into the park. Speed bumps were required to keep folks from taking advantage of the very long straight road from the office to the rear section of the Park. We noticed staff on golf carts patrolling the grounds. Verizon service was great for our MiFi, but voice communications sometimes broke up...still manageable. Just a clean, comfortable place to come to, with no issues. We stayed here in a 43' RV, and yes we will be back. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is large, and has all the facilities you would want. It even has a pond for fishing. The only negative I can say about this campground is that the highway into the campground is very busy. It is U.S. Hwy 17, and most of the time you have problems getting in and out of the campground. Of course, this isn't the campgrounds fault. The WiFi was good, staff was very friendly and helpful. The interior roads were paved, and the sites were large. The long road into the campground has many speed bumps; they are annoying, but more campgrounds need them. We stayed here in a large fifth-wheel, and would stay here again if we were in the area.

Nice campground situated about 10 minutes outside of Charleston. Variety of site surfaces from gravel to concrete all are fairly level. Sites are spacious but not very private. WiFi was as good or better than most places. Staff is friendly and will gladly advise you on where to go and what to do in the area. I only have two negatives about our stay and neither is the campgrounds fault. First the campground has a very busy road in front (US-17) and another along its westerly border. Getting in and out of the campground can be difficult at times because of the amount of traffic so patience is required. Second is the nighttime noise level. Because of the high volume of traffic and the many trucks that use US-17 it stays noisy well into the night and early morning. It’s not so bad that I would not stay there again but it is something to be aware of, perhaps the sites on the easterly side are not as bad. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
