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

We stayed in the Beach campground which is a narrow spit of land with campsites on it. Our site was on the "creek" side, so we saw the tides come in and recede feet from our front door. It was a great spot for nature watching! We did have a racoon visit our site each evening, so put your food away! The beach is a very, short walk away, and it is absolutely beautiful. Many, many shells on the sand. The campsite was a bit tight for our 30 foot rig. We only attached to electricity, having heeded other reviewers warnings about the water. We really liked this campground. Go to the Nature Center and take the hike to the Coastal Marker from 1850. The signage along the path and the marker itself were fascinating. - ShoreXplorers

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

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

Spacious, 50 Amp full hookup, pull through sites with ample room for RV and tow vehicle. Site was fairly level and very clean. Professional and very friendly staff.
Close to Charleston as well as great restaurants and stores. Quiet facility away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal areas. - Happy Motorhomers

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. - Nonee

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. - KAZIMIRA

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. - Ilene S

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

sites are wooded and so the spacing for slides requires some finesse. leaves need to be raked. it is really quiet and the office guy was super nice. bathhouse was clean but showers are old and need updating. we would stay here again. - chopper989

Campground is part of a 600 acre county park complex. The county park is fantastic. Plan time to explore and enjoy. The people at the campground were wonderful. Sites are nice and spaced with an off-set that makes them seem more spacious than they really are. Access roads are easy to navigate. There was plenty of room to back in. Hard packed sand site does track into camper. - Bandguy

Exceeded our expectations. Great park. Great staff. Other than buddy sites, pull thru and back in are well spaced and private. This is a campground within a large county park with numerous other activity areas such as splash pad, huge dog park, water park, paved walking trails, paddle boats and boards, etc.. Limited satellite access for many sites due to trees. Easy drive to downtown. One word of caution is access due to tree cover on streets leading to park with motorhomes - many low hanging branches. We found best access from Folly to Camp to Riverland Drive. Also, Camp to Riverland is more open for a right turn. We will be back! - DavidO
