Returned to park for 5th year running.Large level sites. Roads good. Park has all the enjoyment activities that are expected at a park. This one adds boats, paddle board, canoes, fishing, LARGE dog park with access to water to swim in. Close to Charleston and beaches. Numerous tent sites and cabins. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Very level site, amazing dog park, lots of activities to do. Will stay again. Staff very helpful. Staff assisted us to our site. Was a back-in but he made it a pull-through for us. Very proactive and friendly staff. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is little more expensive than some others in the area but we can usually count on a quality campground when we stay at a KOA and this one did not disappoint. We stayed 2 nights at this campground and enjoyed our site near the lake. The benches by the lake offered a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the evening. The staff was friendly and helpful. We always appreciate when the KOA staff takes the time to escort their guest to their site as part of the check in. The showers which are separate from the restrooms could use a little updating, but they were clean and easy to use. The WIFI worked most of the time and the cable worked well. The nature trail through the woods was unique and an interesting walk. They rent canoes, kayaks and paddle boats, but they are expensive and I did not see anyone using any while we were there. On the 2nd morning we noticed red ants crawling on the motorhome. I sprayed the motorhome and the ground but it took several days to get rid of them. The pool was clean and inviting and we enjoyed playing ping pong in the rec hall. This is a good campground if you are visiting Charleston, FT. Sumter or Patriots point. We would stay here again if we visit the Charleston area again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Get to the ferry early If you're visiting Ft. Sumter. The boat fills up before 9:00 AM. The ride is interesting and they give you a good history lesson about the fort on the way.

Pros: The park is well arranged and the sites are spacious. There is a large lake adjoining the campground and adds to the nice setting. Many sites have mature shade trees and the grounds are well maintained. There is a nice pool area, but we did not use it. The staff went out of their way to find a site that was acceptable after the first two attempts and obviously want to do their best to make your stay agreeable to you. They have a wagon ride on Friday and Saturday over to the Oakland Plantation (original owner's plantation home).
Cons: This is an expensive park compared to almost everywhere else we have stayed and we are "full-timers" even though the beach on Isle of Palms is 30 minutes away. Even the kayak, canoe and paddleboat rentals are ridiculous at $10 per 1/2 hour each - $40/hour for two single kayaks. (We saw no one out in a rental the whole three weeks we were there visiting family.) Although the park is two blocks from highway 17, there is a lot of traffic noise. Some sites have no shade, decrepit picnic tables, large patches of dirt, construction/storage visible, etc. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an extremely nice park but very expensive - nearly $200 for a 3-night stay including tax and with our KOA discount. Everything was meticulously maintained with a friendly, helpful staff, who were always around. We were escorted to our site. Roads were paved and sites were level gravel/sand and plenty long enough for our 40' fifth-wheel with ample room to park our tow vehicle. All utilities worked well, including cable and wi-fi. They have one of the nicest dog parks we have ever seen. The lake is catch-and-release only and, although we don't fish, we saw quite a few people doing so. There is a very nice nature path along the lake. Trash is picked up several times daily at the campsites and recycling is available at the office. Firewood, propane and ice are for sale and canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddle boards, a fishing boat with trolling motor, and banana bikes are for rent. This park is very busy so reservations at least a couple of days in advance are recommended. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The good: Very clean campground; one of the nicest KOAs we've ever stayed at. Helpful staff. Staff members throughout the campground were picking up trash, cleaning fire pits, and maintaining the bathrooms and showers. Cable TV and all utilities worked fine. Site was dirt/gravel. Could be a problem if it rained, but the weather was great during our visit. Awesome fenced-in dog run.
The bad: ridiculously expensive. Paid $66.00 a night for a regular full hookup site. And that rate included our 10% KOA discount. Seriously? We didn't even bother to ask what a "premium" site would have cost. It's a nice campground, but be prepared for sticker shock. This is an expensive campground, even by KOA standards. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is right off highway 17, in Mt Pleasant. Lots of shopping nearby. But be prepared to wait if you're turning left out of the campground onto highway 17. Depending on the time of day, traffic is extremely heavy. I saw people give up trying to turn left onto highway 17; they turned right and eventually found a parking lot to get turned around the other way.

This was a very nice KOA. Most sites were pull thru. There wasn't a lot of traffic in the campground and it was fairly quiet. The campground was very will maintained. It was only a few miles from the Isle of Palms Beach. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

You can park at the Marina which is only a few miles from the campground, and take the water taxi to Charleston. The water taxi cost only $10 per day/per person and you can ride it as much as you like. It is much easier than parking in Charleston.

This park was ok. Most of the KOA parks that I have stayed in were nicer and less expensive. $66 was for a water and electric site without sewer. We were visiting friends in Mt Pleasant or we would have stayed at James Island county park which is less expensive and nicer. I guess you have to pay for location. The staff was friendly and professional. The site was level but Dirt with some gravel. Our biggest complaint is the showers. They were clean but very small. There were no hooks for clothes and only a little stool in the tiny changing area for the tiny shower. For the price paid, I expected better facilities. We will not be staying here again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

This is our second stay within the last 9 months. It is a very good facility with a friendly staff. We were guided to our site which was level and adequately spaced. Water, power, WiFi, and cable all first rate and in good repair. Everything is very clean and well maintained. As stated by others, the dog park is one of the best we've seen.
The facility is ideally situated to visit many historical sites as well as Charleston. It is an oasis in a very busy area. There is plenty to see.
We highly recommend this KOA and will certainly be back. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The Mt. Pleasant/Charleston KOA is a great example of what all KOA's should be: well-spaced sites, excellently-maintained grounds, convenient location, wonderful staff and service. Since our last visit 3 years ago management has installed perhaps the best dog run area we have ever seen (complete with sand pit for digging and water for swimming), a new jungle-gym play area for kids, and many new "kabins" -- though they took many of the prime lakeside RV sites away to do so. Overall, this is a KOA that we will continue to use whenever we are in the Charleston area, and we look forward to doing that again soon. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Great koa, very easy for big rigs in park and entrance is easy as well. Kids enjoyed the play areas and has a great dog park. Great place to stay in the Charleston area! We were here in the "1000 year rain event" with 27" of rain. All the sites were still high and dry and had excellent drainage. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Perfect location for visiting Charleston. Lovely campground with scenic lake. Everything was clean and well cared for. Staff was friendly and helpful. Super convenient with many stores and restaurants nearby yet the park itself is quiet and felt secluded. The wife really liked that we weren't way out in the middle of nowhere. She likes being near the "hubbub". Our site was a pull through - just gravel with no paved or concrete pad or patio so a little messy during rain but not a big deal. For the price it would have been nice to have at least a paved patio. This was our first time staying at a KOA. We would return to this campground if in the area again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed doing a Double Key Treasure Hunt in downtown Charleston and also just freestyle wandering through the neighborhoods with beautiful homes and gardens. Don't miss Patriot Point with a WWII aircraft carrier, destroyer and submarine to explore. It was fun and educational.

Beautiful campground. Entry along a shaded, private road. Sites are well spaced each with a picnic table and fire pit. Some shade at most sites. Cable was clear. All the staff that we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. Laundry was among the most expensive we have used: $2 for a wash and $1.75 to dry for one hour, there was no option for less time. There is a shopping center close by. We visited the Visitor Center in Mt. Pleasant and discovered we could take the bus, CARTA, to the Charleston Visitor Center for $.85 (senior fare) or $1.75 (regular) and then use the free trolleys to get around Charleston. We parked for free near the Mt. Pleasant VC under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Nearby is a lovely park and walk along a pier. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Mt. Pleasant: Ft. Sumter, Boone Hall Plantation. Charleston: walk along the streets, Aiker-Rhett House, Nathaniel- Russell house. Angel Oak Park is on St. John's Island and worth the trip to see a 1500 year old oak tree. Note: the parking lot for the tree is not RV friendly but you can park along the road.

You can pick up the bus at the nearby Wal Mart but it really isn't difficult to drive to downtown. There are many parking garages available at $2/hr. Take a walking tour or use one of the horse drawn buggy tours to see the sites. The naval museum at Patriot's Point is worthwhile.
