1 Park near Edisto Island, South Carolina
Sep 2015 - $50.00
This is probably our sixth visit to Edisto and was not the best.
We got there after a big storm but it took them a couple of days to get some of the roads patched with gravel (piles of gravel were already there).
The site we were in (54) was not level. It wouldn't take much to level the site out.
Normally they have volunteers who clean the campsites up when people leave (we're paying $50/night and they still rely on volunteers?), and they do a great job. When there are no volunteers, the campsites are not cleaned as we found out. Someone in the site across from us departed and left a bag of trash and a bunch of other stuff in the fire pit (you have to pass the trash containers on the way out), so since there were no volunteers, the trash sat there for 2 days and when the next occupant got to the site they told the rangers and they sent someone to clean it up. Why can't the ranger or any of the workers that passed the site daily pick it up?
They installed wi-fi at the 2 bathrooms. The only problem is that they have a very limited range (like right around the bathroom). This is a great idea, but they need a more powerful transmitter/receiver.
Hopefully the next trip in the spring will be better. - jebgg

There are two campgrounds, one in the woods and one at the beach. For us it is all about the beach, however, we do enjoy staying with friends at the woods campground. Many have ample shading and we always have a great time here.
The bad is the beach campground road. Terrible. Needs packed gravel not more dirt. - twotimes

We stayed on the beach loop with a wonderful ocean view out our coach windows over the sand dunes. We parked backwards on our site to get the best view. As others have said, the road into the campground is badly pot-holed, and the water supply is virtually undrinkable due to the salinity. We had a good supply in our tank, so it was not a problem for us. The primary advantage of the park is the ocean front location of course, and the proximity to the beach town right outside the park gate makes grocery runs to the Bi-Lo and meals out at one of several nearby restaurants an easy 10 minute trip at most. You can walk for miles on the beach, but be aware of the high tide times. We did not use the bathroom or shower facilities, but the building does look somewhat dated and in need of maintenance. The campground hosts were very pleasant and helpful. Verizon voice and data was strong and solid, and the Charleston TV stations were within reach of our antenna. We also had a clear view for our Dish satellite service. - NYDutch
