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.

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.

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.

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 was Good Sam, but very expensive. But it was worth the price. The sites were for big rigs with easy access. The campground was very convenient to Charleston and other attractions. The dog run was large. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

Barely acceptable park, considering the price charged. The woman at the desk needs some serious counseling in how to treat a prospective guest. She put the "U" in u friendly. Wi-Fi was about the slowest we've experienced in our last 20 stops. Sites are well laid out and spacious. This park is worth about $30.00! We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

We have stayed here several times in the past, and every time we are here, there has been improvements made. They now have an excellent WiFi system that is much improved from the previous. Oak Plantation is always clean and the staff is very consistant with regards to being helpful and friendly. My only negative is the many speed bumps on the long main drive. I understand them, I just don't like them. We will definitely be back. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I will give all the positives first. Very clean and well maintained park. Nice paved road around the whole park. Our dog loved the dog run which is very big for a rv park. The sites we level for the most part. The first site the put us in had ALOT of pea gravel and I couldn't keep our motorhome level. We moved down a few sites and it was much better. Its about a 15 minute drive from Charleston depending on traffic. We stayed here for 3 months and paid monthly so I am not sure of the daily rate. Now the negatives. My biggest thing was the attitude of SOME of the employees and the owners. They were unfriendly a lot of the time. WATCH out for the excessive speed bumps. Getting in and out of the park is a challenge depending on which way you are going or coming from and time of day. The cable is fuzzy and the wifi is not very good. Go ahead and buy a bunch of ant traps as the sugar ants are every where. We got infested when we first got there and it was a constant battle keeping them out. If we get back to Charleston I would stay here again if nothing else was available. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Camped in 45 foot rig. Easy access from Highway 17 (Old Savannah Highway). Paved interior roads with some paved pad, gravel, and grass driveway sites. Good amount of grass space between your site and your neighbor. Pull-through and back-in sites are easy to get into. Some shade at pull-through sites and more at back-in sites. Sat TV is possible from most pull-through sites. Verizon cell service showed 5 bars. Free Wi-Fi connectivity was good, but the service was slow. Office staff was very friendly and helpful.

This is a well maintained park. The staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are level, and most have cement pads and are wide enough. One odd thing was (considering the park was not full at all) that we were first assigned a site that did not have a cement pad at the end of a row that would hardly have fit our RV. We asked it to be changed and it was. They probably have too many speed bumps. It is close to Charleston and many other attractions. We would stay here again.

Overall the park is good. The rate was a bit high as we travel with four children and the base charge did not cover most of them. The park was conveniently located in relation to downtown Charleston. While the park was quiet and nice I often felt like we were being watched. On one hand it is great the staff is constantly driving around the grounds keeping an eye on things. On the other hand the reminders about what you could not do were a bit too much for me. I know that several people complained about the speed bumps, but I don't think they were that big of a deal; although, there are a lot of them. While the park is nice the next time in the area I'll search for better pricing in advance. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park has easy access to Charleston. It is kept very clean. It has a great dog run which was nice and grassy. The pool was nice. It has many shaded sites for smaller RV's, some grass some gravel, and some cement. We asked for a pull through. The one they gave us had a cement pad just long enough to get all 4 wheels of our 40 footer on and a small grassy area for the toad. After deploying 4 slides there was barely room to sit beside the coach. There were many other sites much larger. The staff was very friendly. It is a nice park we would recommend it. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
