You know I'm not sure what the nightly rate is because we stayed a month. It was 453.05 for a month. The stay was very enjoyable. Lots to see when your in the area. Winery, Tea Plantation, The Market in downtown Charlston, Rainbow Row. Just a wonderful place to stay and the owners are a very nice couple and live on site. We will be back next spring. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here at the Passport America rate and it's the only good thing I can say at this, the poorest park I've ever rated. From the surly check-in, to the poor space, to the terrible Wi-Fi, I can honestly say I'd spend my first night in a Wal-Mart lot before I'd stay here for free. Some details: 1. Surly is surly. I'm a customer and if you think I'm too stupid to notice a condescending attitude, you thought wrong. 2. The advertised "free" Wi-Fi is a joke when the laundry room was full of laptops as a result of the antenna being unusable from as little as 30 feet away. I spoke to one permanent who purchases their own service since the campground's Wi-Fi is so poor. Past negative comments on this site have apparently not registered with CG management. When I complained in person, I was told to go sit in the laundry room. Sorry folks, but the laundry room isn't where I choose to do business! 3. Despite requesting a site close to the laundry room antenna, I was placed in a distant, unlevel site. Not sure if this was because I was paying PPA rates or just because the hostess was feeling especially surly when I showed up. 4. While only 11 miles from Charleston, the drive in is pretty much bumper-to-bumper and takes about 35 minutes. A much better choice would have been Oak Plantation. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Since we were there in the off-season, we were able to get a monthly rate. We spent 2 months here. We enjoyed our stay and found the staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed looking out our window at the lake. It was a quiet and friendly campground with plenty of room at each site. We loved the area as well--there were excellent restaurants in Mt. Pleasant as well as in Charleston. While we were there they completely retitled the bathrooms and showers. The rating would be higher if there had been sites that were not dirt and the sewer connection was not so high (hard to dump your tank when the sewer connection is higher than your drain). We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

A nice park for the Passport America price. Large pull throughs with full hookups. Most of the sites are all grass, some gravel or concrete. The WI-FI was free, but spotty at times. Convenient location South of Charleston. Some train noise from a freight line about half a mile away. No store, but nice laundry facilities. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is about as good as it gets for us. The campground is set several blocks off a city highway, so it's fairly quiet. The site we were in (#25) was gravel and not level, but was spacious with grass, a picnic table and fire pit. It was fairly open so satellite is possible. There was cable TV (lower channels didn't come in) and Wi-Fi for multiple computers with no charge. There is a lake with free fishing, a pool that is covered, very close to shopping and just a few miles for Charleston for sightseeing. The campground was not at all crowded. I suppose everyone is in Florida, because it does get a bit nippy at night here. If you don't like dogs, don't come here. There were lots of dogs, ranging from a weiner dog to a Great Pyrenees, so we fit right in with our two. I just wish the price were a little bit more reasonable, the $43 is with our KOA card discount. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

We stay here 2 times per year and we were afraid that the new shopping center they were building in front along #17 would be noisy. We were very satisfied with the camp ground again. Didn't even notice the shopping center. And the new streets with traffic lights make it easier to get your rig back out onto # 17. Great staff great place to go. Keep up the good work.

We stayed here under Passport America for $17, with 30 amp electric and water hookups. Almost all sites are level grass pull through with no pads, with an average width of 30'. Ours was a little narrower due to the electric box position. Wi-Fi connection was poor despite being 90 feet from the antenna. No cable, but there is local reception and sites are clear for satellite. Laundry room was clean with new equipment. It's 18 miles to downtown Charlestown and took about 25 minutes for the 3 trips we took to the city. We found the management to be courteous and helpful, despite being busy during Easter week. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at this campground. The first was two years ago. We had the exact same space as before, backed up to the lake. It was a nice setting with one major drawback: workers remodeling the "caboose" cabin next door to our site started working with power tools and hammers every morning at 8AM and worked until 6PM. Even on Sunday. As this is a vacation destination, some consideration for early morning noise would have been appreciated. Since our last visit, a very large shopping center has been built across the lake from the campground. While a buffer of trees shields the center from view, it does seem like the noise level in the campground and from US17 is much louder than before. This is now a suburban/urban location and you shouldn't choose it for peace and quiet. It is a great base camp for touring the Charleston area. For that reason, we'll keep this KOA on the list of places to stay when we make our next trip to the Charleston area. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We regularly use this campground. Always nice, friendly staff, and everything as it should be. Pool has a cover over it, so that it can be used in the Winter. I didn't use it this time. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped here at Christmas, and received a discounted rate for having a KOA card. Usually during winter camping you cannot take advantage of all the amenities. They have a heated swimming pool enclosed by a tent, which we found to be a nice touch. As mentioned in another review, the nature trail was poorly marked. While we did not use the bath house, we did check them out and found them very clean. The sites are a mixture of dirt and gravel. We had a pull through which was fairly level. They do have cable TV, however it was more important to us to get a satellite signal for the NFL Sunday Ticket. We were told that all of their sites are satellite friendly and we did not have a problem getting a signal. It was a very easy 10 mile trip to downtown Charleston for sightseeing. There is plenty of shopping within blocks of the campground for groceries and supplies. I only have one complaint. We requested a lake view site. When I made reservations, I was told nothing was available. In fact, I was told they only had 2 sites available. During our entire stay, there were many more than 2 sites available. Also there were sites across from us overlooking the lake that were used for overnight campers. You would think that somebody camping for 4 nights would get a preferred spot over somebody there for 1 night. Especially since when you make a reservation they can not guarantee a particular site. They will only try to do their best to get you the site you want. I have run into this at other campgrounds as well and really do not understand it. Regardless of this flaw, we would definitely camp here again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

Really enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving holiday. Office was closed when we arrived, but our info. was readily available and we easily found our site. It was a long, level pull thru with plenty of space between rigs. Went up to pay next morning and found free coffee and donuts. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. WiFi worked very well (it was fast too), and we weren't right up by the store.(site #3). Bathhouse was spotless and individual shower rooms a real plus. Limited activities, as it was late fall but large area called Blackbeard's Cove right near the entrance to the campground more than enough to entertain children and teenagers. Very, very close to WalMart and Lowe's shopping center - can be accessed without going out onto Rt. 17. One suggestion: Turning left from Rt 17 into the campground can be tough. If coming from the north, turn left at light before the campground (new bank on one side, large subdivision on the other). Either that or go past the campground and turn into WalMart parking lot, go to the rear of the lot where new road is. Turn left there and you'll find the campground within 1/2 mile on your left. Would recommend a stay here anytime. Good location north of Charleston. Also recommend 2 places to eat. Gilligans, in place called Seaside Farms or Sewee Restaurant. Ask in office for directions to both. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed there under Passport America while visiting friends who were also staying there. We were very satisfied and would return. Wi-Fi was hit and miss but usually got a signal. Only drawback was the dirt road that will get your MH dirty. Definitely recommend. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.

We made a reservation earlier in the day with the Passport America discount program. After being checked in, we proceeded to our assigned site while navigating a seemingly endless minefield of potholes. Low and behold, the site was much too short for our trailer and the lady at the desk offered us two other sites, but said we would have to pay an extra $5 per night because they were full hookup sites. We didn't like being treated this way...the lady making reservations made a mistake and we felt we should have offered the other site(s) at the same price. We didn't like the hassle and treatment we received and left - Oak Plantation Campground (4 miles closer to Charleston) is much nicer anyhow we found. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two nights in October while visiting the Charleston area. The sewer sites are fairly open with not much shade, which is great if you have satellite tv. The park was very quiet when we were there. We did manage to have some difficulty parking our tow vehicle by the site, as it was a bit short, however we managed just fine. The office staff was friendly and helpful, although the office was closed when the sign said it should be open. The laundry area was close to our site and clean and convenient. Did not use the pool, but others did. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I purchased a KOA Value Card for a 10% discount. However this campground offers one free night per week. But they will only give you one or the other. So it turns out the free night was a better deal! The KOA Value Card was a waste. Overall a nice facility but we have a few complaints: 1. Ant infestation: after our first night we discovered ants in the motorhome. I discovered that a whole army of ants was marching right up the right front stabilizer. So I sprayed the area. The next day my wife found ants all over the bed. We discovered that they were coming in via the cable TV cable from outside! I sprayed that area. However, the next morning, they were marching in again! So I strung the cable TV cable and electrical cord up in the air so they they wouldn't touch the ground. My wife also called the office. They sent someone out to spray. For the next week we spent many hours scooping up hoards of ants with a wet sponge and washing them down the sink. We're back home now and I still don't know how many ants are in the motorhome! 2. The first evening we went on the nature trail by the lake. After walking about 25 minutes we came to the end of the path at a "T." There was no sign indicating which way to go. We must have gone the wrong way because we came to a dead end. It started to get dark and the mosquitoes started to bite. This concerned us a bit and we contemplated turning around but we had no flashlight. We went the other direction and luckily found our way back. Now for the positives: Very clean, well-managed, and quiet. The wireless internet worked well except that you have to log in for access. Occasionally during browsing you are redirected to the login screen again and you have to log in again. We camped at Mt. Pleasant / Charleston KOA in a Motorhome.
