It is an excellent RV park with plenty of room..to walk around, walk the dogs...and visit. There's large dog park as well. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
We gave 'Swig and Swine' a try for dinner...absolutely delicious. It's on Hwy 17 a few miles from the park towards the city. Be prepared for HEAVY traffic on route 17! It only slows up a bit after 6pm. Don't know where all these people are going to...or coming from. It's difficult getting out of the park...especially going east. They love to tailgate sown here!

Nice campground. Large sites. Good interior roads. Too many speed large bumps. Paved sites. Making a left in or out of campground is impossible. This is our second time here. Wifi is fair. We would rate higher if fewer speed bumps. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
Wal-mart, Publix and other necessities close by. Traffic is terrible all day.

This large rural park is attractive and a pleasant place to stay for a brief time or an extended stay. However, too many speed bumps and traffic on 17 is very heavy making left turns in or out of the park difficult. For a park this size, laundry facilities are surprisingly minimal: 4 washers (one not functioning) and 2 dryers! Wifi is adequate during times of light use. Park has recycle containers! A rarity. Garbage containers are numerous and convenient. Close to Charleston sights. Shopping is close. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
Historic Charleston is charming.

Oak Plantation Campground near Charleston, SC is highly recommended. Their web site does not begin to show what they have. Roomy, shaded, grass and amenities. Baths are older but clean. Wifi worked well except late at night when everybody was on. TV cables channels were all good. I took many pics that really tell the story. The highway leading into the campground is CROWDED all the time. You can mitigate this when leaving by turning right out of the campground and accessing town from the Glenn McConnell Pkwy - only an extra mile or two. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Most of the Plantations are very close to Oak Plantation Campground. You can take back roads to the major plantations.

Large campground off highway 17 about 20 minutes from Charlestown. Park is mostly grass with mature oak trees. Spaces were not real private but had plenty of room. There was a lot of open space that was not used for RV sites. There was a small pool, but it was a ways from most of the RV sites near the highway. Hook ups and WIFI were fine. Convenient to Charlestown and other local attractions. We would stay there again c. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed at this park a little over a year ago and this park still remains a good destination stay when visiting Charleston. This time we stayed on a pull through site for 2 nights in section F on a pebble rock pad and found the site to be level and wider than the site stayed on during our previous stay. Wifi was stronger in this area due to closeness to a repeater. The park was nicely manicured and the facilities were clean at all times. We will no doubt stay here again when visiting the area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second visit at this park. It is conveniently located on Hwy. 17. The traffic on the highway is pretty heavy in the afternoons and early morning making it very difficult to turn left out of the park. The staff was nice and accommodating. There is a swimming pool located at the front of the park--quite a distance from most of the sites. The sites are mainly grass. The park has mature oak trees. our Direct TV satellite did not work because of all the trees. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
Highly recommend eating at Anna Bell's. It is only open for lunch Monday-Friday. Plan for commute time almost everywhere you go--lots of traffic.

We stayed a week, visiting friends and doing day trips; very handy spot to start exploring the area. Left turns into and out the park during rush hours is near impossible. The park itself is well organized; neat and clean, paved roads, spacious sites (some with concrete pads; most gravel), lots of oak trees and grass. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The check-in pkg includes excellent driving directions to 16 shopping centers, grocery stores, Costco, Wal-Mart, places to visit, hospitals and more. Very handy! Plenty of garbage and recycling containers around the park. Laundry facilities are lacking--four washers, two dryers woefully inadequate for a park this size. If you have satellite TV, be sure to ask for a spot that's not right under the trees. This is our 2nd stay here and we'd come again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Plenty to see and do in and around Charleston. Be sure to visit Ft. Sumpter, Rainbow Row, Magnolia Plantation and any of several well-done history museums about the area. The downtown Market Street Scenic Route (directions on the sheet included at check-in) is also a must see and do.

Beautiful park, lots of shade trees, well manicured grass. Our site had concrete pad for trailer so leveling was easy. Convenient to Charleston but getting in & out of park was tough. Traffic on 17 is almost always backed up so leaving or entering park you are crossing 3 lanes of traffic. Main road into park has 11 speed bumps/humps which was very annoying. Pool was nice but located at entrance so not very convenient. Laundry facilities for a park this size was poor. 4 washers & 2 huge dryers. Small card table for folding. Wifi was better than most parks but slow. Cable was ok. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this park as a base to tour Charleston. It's conveniently located, about 11 miles from the historic downtown area. It's a very nicely laid out park. There are lots of trees, but it has a very open feel. The pull through sites are long and spacious. Many sites have shrubs between them. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of shopping about 5 miles away, Costco, Target and many others. There's a free trolley in the historic downtown area, very easy to ride. We did the Charleston Harbor Cruise, very nice 90 min cruise.

We enjoyed the park with one exception, the speed bumps (humps). The park is well laid out, clean and organized. Maneuvering with large rigs is comfortable and the spaces are reasonably sized as commercial parks go. From the office to our parking spot we had to cross 11, yes 11, speed bumps. There is no way to avoid these, each time we entered or left the park we had to cross all 11 speed bump. While they are clearly effective in slowing traffic, we believe the owners could find better ways to deal with their obvious concerns for controlling speed. The owners provided a list of shopping and service providers in the area -- appreciated and useful. Left turns out of the park are challenging given the exit across a busy divided highway that is not signal controlled. Would have rated the park a 9 or 10, if it had not been for all the speed bumps. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy in, some issues with turning left out of the park, we then just turned right and turned around in the gas station past the traffic light. Very spacious, good staff, nice place to stay. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.
Angel Oak restaurant was very nice, make reservations. Publix just past the RV park, nice. Easy to get into Folly or Charleston, a few miles but no problem.

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.
Take a carriage tour of downtown Charleston. The carriage drivers are very knowledgeable about the history of the area.

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.

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!!Sajjvj • November 2016

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.Ilene S • August 2016

The food in Charleston is AMAZING! Favorite restaurant was "Leon's Fine Poultry and Oysters". We stumbled upon it by the Citadel but were so happy with it. Out of the way but worth it. Also "Hominy Grill" was delicious, great atmosphere.Camping Ben • June 2016
Ask for a shady spot of possible. Also, exiting left onto Savannah Highway from the park to go into Charleston is extremely challenging during rush hour.Sovrn1 • June 2016
It's almost impossible to turn left to get into Charleston during morning rush hour. You need to turn right and turn into the gas station to get out on a side street. Traffic going into town is very busy and slow even during the middle of the day. Plan enough time, especially if taking the ferry to Ft. Sumpter. We enjoyed a visit to the Charleston Tea Plantation. Had lunch at the Oyster House on Market and shared 4 oyster/shrimp appetizers. Wonderful and great service!dickens • June 2016
Loved the Charleston Tea Plantation. Take the free tour and tasting. Downtown Charleston and the Waterfront Park area are terrific. We parked at the visitor center on meeting street and walked but there are free trolleys that you can ride all overe. Kiawah Island Beach was delightful.SNL • June 2016
Close to Charleston on US-17 west of downtown. Very very heavy traffic! Late afternoon, it was a royal pain slogging down 17 from I-526 to the campground! Nearly impossible to exit across near lanes to turn into left-bound 17! My advice: ask office for other directions if that's where you want to go when you leave. If you do decide to wait for a gap in traffic, make sure your tanks are full of gas before you do! You'll need it!Tomseeley • May 2016

We experienced our first Segway tour of Mount Pleasant and had a ball. There are lots of great places to eat and the ferry ride and tour of Fort Sumter was fantastic. We were the first to arrive at the Fort on the day we visited and I was given the honor along with about 25 others to raise the flag over the Fort for the day. The Park Ranger gave a great talk and set the tone for us to pledge allegiance - a moving experience.the Fishers • May 2016
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.Mtmoi • April 2016
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.SandyA • April 2016

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.tvolk • December 2015

Charleston, South Carolina! Horse drawn carriage tours, walking history, an aquarium, Fort Sumter, and great restaurants. We're planning to come back for more fun.Wildmans Clan • August 2015
We went to the normal tourist locations. There is a covered lot by the visitors center that has spaces for big pickups and small RV's. It is just off St.Marys street. When downtown have a burger at AC's Bar, it is by the visitors center. We had the Grand-Marneir burger. Excellent!dj&pj • August 2015
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!tbillman • July 2015

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.righttime • November 2014
