Heavily wooded site with live oak trees, very pretty. Fairly private site. Water is salty and did not use. Beach portion of the park was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew. Expected to be rebuilt by September 2017. Site was flat but very fine sand. Trails were closed due to hurricane. The beach, small grocery store and restaurant were 1/2 mile away. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Roads are not as bad as others have indicated - greatly improved in last year. Prices have gone up a lot in the past year but our site was merely yards away from the surf. Staff mostly helpful and friendly. - JERRY & ANN TARHEEL

First time to visit this park. We will definitely be back. Loved Edisto Beach and the park is beautiful. Lots of trees for privacy, sites are spacious with water & electric hookup. Ocean on one side and marsh in the other--beautiful sunset over the marsh and sunrise over the ocean. Beach was nice, with piles of shells. Rangers were very helpful during check-in. People were very friendly--lots of families. Dogs are allowed on the beach, which is great. This is now one of our favorite parks. - Chesapeake Bay Lola

Part of the Charleston County Park system on John's Island. Call before you go, if there is no event they do allow public camping. Good access to Keiwah Island and downtown Charleston (south side). A long drive to Fort Sumter on the north side. Excellent service and people at the office. Grass site with picnic table. Offers MANY trails for walking or horseback, even a carriage ride if you like. - SailorGolf

Absolutely loved this park! It sits right on the ocean and the beach is never crowded because it is just for the campground only! The staff was super nice, check in was a breeze. This park is beautiful with huge trees and palms everywhere. The only caution I would give is that the roads through the park are narrow and curvy so take your time to maneuver through it. - Loving God's Country!

I will say that we have visited Hunting Island every year for nine consecutive years. I have always rated the park highly, but not this time. This park's location is incredible, but without serious investment by the state if South Carolina, this park will continue to degrade. The bathhouses are 10 years overdue for refurbishment. Due to ongoing beach erosion, when there are heavy rains (common in the coast) water will collect and flood many campsites. For two years now we have witnessed many tent campers have there entire site end up under 4-6 inches of water. The state knows these sites are flood prone yet they continue to rent them out to unsuspecting families who end up having to pack up and leave after a heavy rain. The roads need work and I would estimate 90% of the campsites need releveling to eliminate the low areas that hold standing water. The campground hosts as well as the Rangers and staff are top notch. They deal with so many guests dealing with poor conditions and should be commended. Hunting Island generates more revenue for SC than any other park, yet every year funds are withheld to bring the facilities up to date and renourish the beach. My family and I love this place, my kids have grown up here, but this may have been our last trip here until something is done to fix the problems. I really feel like South Carolina is simply stealing tourists dollars at this point and if they don't address the problems immediately, Mother Nature is going to reclaim this incredible campground. I hope the state will act soon. - GaDawgFan

Let me begin by stating, if you come prepared, your stay will be a great one. Yes, there are plenty of mosquitoes and No-See-Um's for everyone. We used a Thermacell and a large fan while sitting outside and had no problem. We did not have to use spray on insect repellent. There were a few things that I did not like about the campground; very few of the sites I saw were level but with a few boards it should not be a problem. Many of the sites had standing, stagnate, water either on the site or nearby, a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Our site, and those around us, had mud on the site. A little gravel on almost all of the sites would go a long way toward improvements. The roads are paved but can be very narrow in places. If you take your time you should have no problem. Some sites are a little tight to back into because of a few trees. We did have one issue with a large dog that was left outside all the time and barked non-stop. After several complaints, the rangers did make a visit which helped the situation. Overall, the staff we had contact with were very nice and knowledgeable. The wildlife within the park is unbelievable! Deer would walk right up to your campsite. If you are not careful, the raccoons will enjoy anything not properly stored. The beach is a short walk from any campsite and they are wonderful. Best of all, they are not over crowded. Park WiFi was ok if you were near one of the buildings. AT&T/LTE service was ok, usually 1-2 bars. 50 amp service was good along with water pressure. The park store was one of the better stocked stores for a state park. Aside from the usual T-shirts and hats, they had soft drinks, milk, eggs, and other grocery items. Overall, this really is a great park and we will return. I do wish they had sewer connections. They do have two dump stations. The park was clean and well organized. Each time I visited the bathhouse, they were clean and well stocked. - dtaylor

Overall a nice park. Many residents but clean and tidy. Good spot to stay when visiting Charleston. Some interior roads are a little tight but my 40' motorhome didn't have a problem. Antenna TV was fine, Wi-Fi ok but not secure. Good laundry and all other necessities. Check in fine and office was helpful. - senator47

This campground is located about 12 miles southwest of downtown Charleston. It is in a generally quiet area away from highways but you may hear a passing train at night. Most sites are pull throughs. There are some "seasonal" sites some of which are not too attractive. There is a pool that we didn't use. The free WiFi was spotty but generally worked for us. The bathrooms were not kept particularly clean. You walk across a grass and dirt area before walking into the bathroom so the floor seemed to be dirty from the foot traffic. We had a full hook up site with 50 amp electric and paid about $34 per night with Passport America. - Coopsecondact

We stayed here for over month, and would have stayed longer except that Hurricane Matthew had other ideas. Our extended stay was to wait to buy and move into a home.
We have been to hundreds of parks in the 8+ years RVing and this is one of the nicest, friendliest parks we've ever parked. A very friendly and accommodating staff. The owners are young, responsible, and hard working. The park is almost immaculate. It has a nice catch-and-release fishing pond, good, solid, and wide roads for easy parking.
The park is surrounded by timber and makes for nice walks and bike rides. It's about 17 miles from downtown Charleston and is in an area with very little traffic.
If you're annoyed by trains, move elsewhere because trains pass all day and night about a 1/4 mile away. We happen to like the sounds of trains so were no problem for us and not reflected in my rating.
South Carolina rv parks are pretty proud of themselves and they reflect in the pricing for the season. Ignore the $17 rate indicated above. RVing is more expensive at any park in SC but some are much worse than others. Lake Aire was about average pricing, but we felt we got our money's worth.
We would absolutely return to this park. - R_R PRanger

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. - c lewis

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. - SHIPM8

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. - Airstreamers

By the time we leave this park we will have stayed almost 3 months. Maneuvering through the park is tight but manageable. The turn into our site was really tight but plenty of room once set up. They have a few big rig sites that they keep back for folks to have short term stays in. There are many folks here that are permanent, you can tell from the amount of stuff laying around their sites, and many here working the cleanup caused by Matthew. Very quiet starry nights. Wifi is unusable after about lunch time but we were told they are expanding. Verizon signal is 4-5 bars. Our site has just enough clearance in the trees to pick up the eastern arc for our satellite. There is a huge dog run and playground for the kids plus many trails to walk. Was told by our neighbor that since Hunting Island State Park will be closed for the next year, this park is much busier. We have enough room at our site to park 4 vehicles. All in all this is a decent place to stay and would again. - Ghettomedic

Camped here in a 37 foot motor home with a toad. Had no trouble maneuvering at the front of the park. Next to us was a 39 foot MH with a trailer. They went in and out with no trouble. Campsites had a wooden picnic table. We had good 50 amp service, water and sewer. Space 20 was listed as a premium site. Lots of space, oak trees and Spanish moss provide privacy between sites. There is a kids playground and a cement 1/2 court basketball area. Pond on site with bluegill and bass. Never saw the alligator. Very quiet at night, 5 bar Verizon signal, good cable, slow WiFi. Was able to get both Savannah and Charleston TV stations on RV mounted antenna. Soil is compacted sand and wood.
We weathered Tropical Storm Hermine here. Some falling oak branches, lots of rain and lost power for about 24 hours, but no damage. Trees blocked the wind. Some flies and mosquitos, love bugs and black gnats.
US Mail Package with medicines "lost." Park Management saying wasn't delivered, USPS saying it was. No resolution at this writing. Suggest you use general delivery at St Helena Island. - starsekr

We do not recommend this campground for anyone with an RV over 25 feet in length. Although they claim to be able to accommodate large trailers and motor homes there is little maneuvering room to swing into or out of the sites. The roads are narrow with overhanging trees and require sharp tight turns. We were extremely relieved to get out of this campground without damaging our vehicle. Be advised and warned before heading here. NOT for Big RVs!! - Damon Travelers

Large wooded lots. Plenty of room for our 66' rig with trailer. County Roads into the park have low limbs, but we were able to get under them. - Sunny Weathers

We stayed here as part of a camping club; great facility and friendly staff. We stayed as part of a group and the club paid the five nights of camping fee. The full hookup site was great and it had 50, 30, & 20 amp connections. Easy in & out. - Denis
