Very nice park but very high price. Wifi and cable both worked well. Close to everything and easy access to historic area of Charleston via Hwy 17. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

This RV park was fine - just overpriced for our needs. KOAs are always "resort-priced" it seems, but transient adults like us don't really want or use all those features that we are paying for (wagon rides, playground, paddleboats, etc) It was a nice enough stop for a couple of days and the folks in the office were super .. very friendly and helpful. And there was some decent bike-riding along quiet side streets, which was a plus for us. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

This is one of the better KOA's we have stayed in - very clean park with a friendly and helpful staff, and there is a big staff which explains the rather hefty cost, in addition to the ideal location for seeing the ever popular Charleston. Kamp K-9 for dogs is wonderful and a dog lover's treat. Still, we could not help thinking 65 bucks for a back in with no sewer (and next to a storage) was quite overpriced. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well run park. Friendly staff. We had a premium site which was large enough to accommodate our 37' MH and tow vehicle. Good separation between sites and the sites themselves are slightly staggered so that all the MH are not parked parallel to each other. Wifi was good although much slower during the weekend. Cable was grainy, we used our satellite instead. The park has a 1.2 mile nature trail which is well maintained as well as a large lake with a frisbee golf course which is unusual to find but lots of fun. Located close to a main road in Mt. Pleasant that has all sorts of shops, stores etc yet the park is far away enough such that there is minimal if any road noise. 20 minute easy drive to the Charleston historic district. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Our 2nd visit here. Super clean and really nice people working here. We arrived at 9:02 p.m. but the office stayed open for us and we were still escorted to our site. Large enough site for our 32' motorhome and a rental car with plenty of room to spare. Enough space between units or Kabins so we didn't feel like sardines. Just a couple of blocks off the main drag to Charleston and very quiet. Nice small lake (catch and release), large dog park, disc golf, pool, and adjacent fun park. The most amazing thing is that the Wi-Fi actually works and works well. The exception was Saturday evening when the campground was filled to the gills, the other six days were great. I also experienced the "low def" almost unviewable cable TV so we just used our antenna for weather reports. I didn't set up the dish. It sure ain't cheap, but I'd stay here again (and again) when in Charleston. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Delightful camping. Nice lake, fenced dog park where dogs can safe swim behind underwater fence to keep them safe from anything in the water. Great hiking trails. Super friendly and helpful staff. GREAT WiFi Internet access and cable TV. WiFi always worked, everday and night the entire week. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very pleasant lightly wooded campground with a lake. Far enough from US 17 to reduce the traffic noise. Asphalt access roads, mostly level gravel sites. Big rigs need to use caution around the entrance gate coming into the campground (need to swing to the right - looks like they bulged the road here to make room for a gate, but they didn't extend the bulge far enough past the gate to allow a big rig to stay on the pavement). Exit to US 17 is by turning either left or right when leaving the campground (direct access to US 17 North is possible by going straight but is highly dependent on traffic). Going either left or right, there will be some low hanging branches and a fair amount of branches protruding from the sides. Big rigs will most likely need to hug the centerline (if not slightly over it) to avoid scraping. Power ok, water ok (70 psi), sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with speed ranging from adequate to abysmal. TMobile LTE 2 bars with adequate speed. Verizon LTE 2 bars, did not check speed. Satellite access depends on the site. Single stream recycling on site. Ok road bike riding in campground and on some of the surrounding streets, but no immediate access to riad bike trails. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

A bit expensive even in off season. Nice family park with excellent staff, good cable and wifi. We would stay here agin because there are no other real choices on Mt Pleasant side of Charleston - - and it is a good park. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
