This RV park is located on the active base of the Marine Corp Recruiting Depot. Directions on the Military campgrounds website were pretty good, EXCEPT that they indicated you have to call if arriving on a Sunday (which we were) to secure keys to unlock the utilities. Despite many, many phone calls on the Thursday & Friday prior, and during operating hours, no one answered the campground phone; numerous messages left with no return calls. We were a bit worried, but when we arrived, our site (#4) was indeed open and no issue with any kind of lock on the utilities. We just backed in and set up; there's nowhere to really check in. There's only 18 RV sites here, all in a row with the bath/showers in the middle. They back up to trees (even though the map looks like there's water behind). Site has full hook-ups and is a mixture of gravel, grass, concrete & asphalt. The fairly large concrete area is a patio next to the RV (for under the awning), & has a picnic table. Asphalt drive up to the gravel & grass where the RV is parked. Sites are very wide and level but somewhat near other sites with no shrubs or trees between. Free internet with a strong signal most of the time; AT&T also had a strong signal, TV got around 15 channels over the antenna. Easy to back in and get out. Very quiet, rather secluded. We didn't get to do much because it rained most of the time we camped. Roads to drive through the base are good and easy to navigate. There's a gas station and Bx there too. This park is a great bargain! We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive into Beaufort. There's a nice little downtown area by the bay with beautiful homes facing the bay. We went to a restaurant called "Q on Bay", a great barbeque place with craft beer. The Brunswick Stew is quite yummy! As are the wings, the sliders, and best of all the warm southern pecan pie!

This campground is located on the Parris Island Marine Corps base. Check-in is virtual once you get in the main gate. Campground is not staffed so you find your site and park. There is only 20 sites open after the recent hurricanes. Full hook up concrete sites are all back in and very spacious. There is no tree shade. The bathhouse and laundry facilities were very clean and well maintained. The sunsets are very nice and there is a waterfront park a couple miles down the road. The historical marker trail behind the gold course was very educational. Verizon service was excellent. We would return again! We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This campground is a very simple campground. There is only one row and all are back-in. The site easily fit our 42.5 5th. It is located on a quiet part of the Marine base, but every once and a while, we were treated to seeing the cadets marching by with fun packs, or running on one of their long runs. This was inspiring to our teenage boys who aspire to join the military, as was the sound of the firing range. Upon arrival, we found that our site had been taken. There was a mix-up in reservations, so we had to shuffle around to make it work, and move after one day. While inconvenient, we ended up receiving our stay for free, which was not necessary but appreciated. We chose Parris Island because of its location near the St. Elena historic site, Hilton Head, and Savannah. We also had fun touring the base and showing our kids what boot camp is all about. The laundry facility was inexpensive, but could have used a cleaning due to spider webs. We would definitely return! We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

I checked with the office today and the campground is still without power. The power was damaged in Hurricane Matthew in September of 2016 and they have not had power since then. They are hoping repairs to begin in the middle or late of July 2017. If you are staying there on generator when repairs begin you will have to leave and they will give you a refund per the office personnel.

This park is for military only or for those visiting for the graduation of family members from USMC basic training. The RV Park is remote, but you can still hear the wonderful sounds of the Recruits sounding off and shooting at the range. Sites are large and level and the laundry facilities are clean and inexpensive. Concrete level sites with plenty of room in between. I had some problems with the WiFi and the third party tech support was no help. Otherwise, the park was great. We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a rv park for military active duty, retirees or guests of graduating recruits.Very clean as only a military base can be. Their is no campground host, so you will get a combination to unlock lockers in the bathhouse to get the keys to unlock the utilities. Spaces are level with concrete patio and picnic table. Spaces are quite large. Free Wi-Fi which was in and out during our stay, but very strong near the bath house. Bath house is clean, as well as the laundry facilities.Roads in and out are in great shape.There is a park close by, but children will be bored here. Convenient for visiting Charleston or Savanna and surrounding areas. We would stay again. We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
