This is a convenient CG less than 10 miles from Old Town. Folks running the place were friendly and very helpful. We parked in the back. Rows MM-RR are pretty close together. The spots on the other side of the entrance road, rows M-R, appeared to be much larger. Other wise no complaints. Tough getting out of the campground and turning left. Very busy road and no light. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Lot's to do in Charleston. We were there over the Christmas Holiday. Food is superb just about everywhere. Circa 1886 was one of our favorites. Check out the gator in the park pond. It's a big one.

This is a large campground with most sites being pull thrus. Our site was toward the rear(row NN) and was far enough back from Hwy. 17 that we heard no road noise. Sites were level, utilities all worked well, and cable tv/wifi were good. Staff was very professional and very knowledgeable about the area. Due to the size of the park, there are many speed bumps that work very well to reduce vehicle speeds. It can be very difficult to turn left out of the campground on to Hwy. 17 sometimes, particularly at commute times in the morning and evening. There is a nice Publix supermarket about 1/2 mile west of the campground. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A very popular campground, especially on weekends. Many snowbirds. Nice facility if spots close together. On a lake and on an interesting plantation. Good dog park. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a professionally run campground. Everything is neat and clean. The staff is courteous and helpful. Our site was a concrete pad and absolutely level. The utility pedestal was conveniently located in the center of the site. Water pressure was good. Electric was strong and stable. The sewer port was clean and accessible. Cable TV was a little on the grainy side. The WiFi worked very well, although it tended to get overwhelmed during peek usage hours. The speed bumps in this park are the stuff of legends. My only complaint is the location of the park entrance. It is maybe 100 yards from the very busy intersection of US 17 and Main Rd, making ingress and egress difficult and dangerous. In spite of that we would stay here again, provided I don't have to make a left turn in our out of the place. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well kept and maintained campground. Couple things that are downside are the use of WIFI and US 17 is a busy highway all the time as it was hard to get out whether you turn left or right. Was told the area is growing. Would return though. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Charleston is a charming town! We walked downtown and many interesting, landmark, historical buildings. We parked downtown & took the free trolley. Visited beautiful & ate delicious lunch at Middleton Plantation, very close to the campground. Also went to Festival of Lights which just opened Nov 11 - beautiful!!

Would like to know how the last reviewer paid just $39. On the plus side, sites are very large and level and utilities worked well with hookups in the center of the site. Sites are an odd collection of surfaces. Ours was grass and dirt while my next door neighbor's was gravel. Lots of trees, but about half the sites are clear for satellite reception. We had specified a site with clear view to the sky for satellite reception, so naturally, they assigned us a site under the trees. The clerk was visibly annoyed that he would have to change the site numbers on some reservations because of moving me to another site. The park was less than half filled, so availability was not an issue. Staff attitude is not a strong suit here. WIFI worked well with our signal amplifier. Bring your flashlight - this is the darkest commercial park in which we have ever stayed. Traffic on US 17 and streets that feed it is a nightmare most of the time. If you cannot get into James Island State Park, this may be one of several alternatives. This place is expensive and not the most convenient place for visiting Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

We booked last minute for a T'give Holiday and received excellent service and information. Campground was busy, but well run even on the Holiday. Easy in and out, but kind of "urban". Dump station clean and easy access. I wouldn't expect a wilderness experience. This campground is a good base camp for exploring all of Charleston area. Staff had very helpful local recommendations. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was very nice - a good location, maybe 1/2 hour out of Charleston. It was huge - and the lots were pretty good sized too. Very organized, clean, well groomed. The sites were very well laid out. Paved streets. The only downside was I never could get on their wifi. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Charleston is an amazing city - we did a walking tour with Charleston Sole company, and were very pleased. Ate dinner at Husk, and Magnolia, and both were wonderful! Plan on gaining weight in Charleston! The history of the buildings is just amazing.

We stayed here overnight only. Good showers, sinks, tv cable and wifi. Public across the street. On Highway 17 about 30 minutes from Charleston. Great staff and good sites. We would stay here again. Speed bumps are BIG!! But ok at 5 mph. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

The grounds are beautiful, very well maintained. Very quiet park. There are a lot of speed bumps throughout the park. People in office were nice. The bathrooms and showers were dirty. Moldy shower curtains, Moldy wall and floor tile. The reason for the low rating is the condition of the bath house. Would not stay here again for this reason.

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.

Nice park, lots of room between sites, most shaded. Only negatives were the MANY speed bumps which are bad for any RV rig, and the nice new pool right next to a busy, noisy highway. Other than getting yelled at for going 12 in our car between the speed bumps (WAY too many for any park!) the staff was pleasant and helpful. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Located about 8 miles from downtown Charleston so convenient but 17 is a very busy road, stoplights, etc., but still convenient to town.

Restaurants, gas stations nearby. Recommend Gilligan's ( a few blocks away) and Swig and Swing; avoid Southern Roots.

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.
