This was an over night stop for us. Staff was friendly, cable and WiFi worked well. Close to I-95, but far enough away that road traffic wasn't an issue. We would/will stay here again. - Joe-n-Doe

This was probably one of the best campgrounds we have every stayed at. It was on the smaller side and the sites were close together, but the staff and activities make it worth a stop. We attended the wine tasting and had a great time meeting other campers and talking with the staff. It was a great deal and introduced us to some local wines that we probably wouldn't have chosen had we not gone to the wine tasting. The staff was so friendly, we could have spent all night talking with them. Our kids enjoyed the fact that they could order pizza in the camp store and have it delivered right to the site. Everything in the campground was very well cared for and kept clean. The bathrooms were one of the cleanest we came across in the three weeks of our travels. I would highly recommend staying here for a one night stop. - coldwaterconch

Arrived late, place was about to close. However, folks in the office were very nice and directed us to a spot where we would not disturb too much in our early morning departure. Kids loved spending a few relaxing moments in the pool before it closed. Enjoyed our stay and would for sure stay there again. - min7854

Better than having to dry dock on a crowded street. Spots very close, but did have all the necessities- cable TV even had 5 or 6 stations. Spots are dirt and not even close to being level. - DwFriedberg

Almost cancelled our reservation after reading some reviews - Glad we didn't. This is not a resort, it is a older, mature campground and as that is a good value. Campground is basically level, sites are long, very quiet even on a holiday weekend. We couldn't connect to our Dish, but cable works fine, no charge for this. Roads have been improved and pool looks very inviting. We spent 4 nights in this park and visited surrounding areas. - RVgranny07

We are Thousand Trails members so the cost of this stay is included in our annual membership fee. Even at no out of pocket money we feel cheated.
As other posters have stated, it is a quagmire with deep muddy ruts everywhere. Trees will attack your rooftop antennae, vents, and a/c units. Forget about satellite TV or solar, you are in the forest.
Thousand Trails should never book a large RV in this park. We will never stay here again. - bobnsandi

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. - User3319

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. - mahill526

Great overnight stop off I-95. Check in was a breeze and efficient. Very long site well laid out and clean. Of course there is some noise since you are immediately adjacent to the interstate but not unbearable. FHU 50 amp site. WIFI worked well, cable TV was fine. We would stop here again when in the area. - Bob & Stephanie

This was a one night stopover on the way back to Florida. It is very convenient to get to to from I-95, and is perfect for a one night pass through. We showered here, but it's not something I'd want to do often. I can't say it was dirty, just sadly outdated with burned out fluorescent bulbs, which made for a dark (men's) shower. We would stay here again. On a positive note, the cable was good and the internet strength for our Verizon wi-fi was awesome! - rburckhart

The sites are very long pull thrus, mostly grass, and fairly level. Some leveling was necessary at our site. We stayed twice in a 2 week span while traveling. It is close to interstate, but noise was not really an issue. The restrooms and showers are old and definitely could use some updating, but they were clean. It is a very good park for an overnight, never have to unhook dinghy. - raysman

Camped here in a 37 foot motor home with a toad. Had no trouble maneuvering at the front of the park. Next to us was a 39 foot MH with a trailer. They went in and out with no trouble. Campsites had a wooden picnic table. We had good 50 amp service, water and sewer. Space 20 was listed as a premium site. Lots of space, oak trees and Spanish moss provide privacy between sites. There is a kids playground and a cement 1/2 court basketball area. Pond on site with bluegill and bass. Never saw the alligator. Very quiet at night, 5 bar Verizon signal, good cable, slow WiFi. Was able to get both Savannah and Charleston TV stations on RV mounted antenna. Soil is compacted sand and wood.
We weathered Tropical Storm Hermine here. Some falling oak branches, lots of rain and lost power for about 24 hours, but no damage. Trees blocked the wind. Some flies and mosquitos, love bugs and black gnats.
US Mail Package with medicines "lost." Park Management saying wasn't delivered, USPS saying it was. No resolution at this writing. Suggest you use general delivery at St Helena Island. - starsekr

We do not recommend this campground for anyone with an RV over 25 feet in length. Although they claim to be able to accommodate large trailers and motor homes there is little maneuvering room to swing into or out of the sites. The roads are narrow with overhanging trees and require sharp tight turns. We were extremely relieved to get out of this campground without damaging our vehicle. Be advised and warned before heading here. NOT for Big RVs!! - Damon Travelers

sites are wooded and so the spacing for slides requires some finesse. leaves need to be raked. it is really quiet and the office guy was super nice. bathhouse was clean but showers are old and need updating. we would stay here again. - chopper989

Absolutely loved this park! It sits right on the ocean and the beach is never crowded because it is just for the campground only! The staff was super nice, check in was a breeze. This park is beautiful with huge trees and palms everywhere. The only caution I would give is that the roads through the park are narrow and curvy so take your time to maneuver through it. - Loving God's Country!

I will say that we have visited Hunting Island every year for nine consecutive years. I have always rated the park highly, but not this time. This park's location is incredible, but without serious investment by the state if South Carolina, this park will continue to degrade. The bathhouses are 10 years overdue for refurbishment. Due to ongoing beach erosion, when there are heavy rains (common in the coast) water will collect and flood many campsites. For two years now we have witnessed many tent campers have there entire site end up under 4-6 inches of water. The state knows these sites are flood prone yet they continue to rent them out to unsuspecting families who end up having to pack up and leave after a heavy rain. The roads need work and I would estimate 90% of the campsites need releveling to eliminate the low areas that hold standing water. The campground hosts as well as the Rangers and staff are top notch. They deal with so many guests dealing with poor conditions and should be commended. Hunting Island generates more revenue for SC than any other park, yet every year funds are withheld to bring the facilities up to date and renourish the beach. My family and I love this place, my kids have grown up here, but this may have been our last trip here until something is done to fix the problems. I really feel like South Carolina is simply stealing tourists dollars at this point and if they don't address the problems immediately, Mother Nature is going to reclaim this incredible campground. I hope the state will act soon. - GaDawgFan

Let me begin by stating, if you come prepared, your stay will be a great one. Yes, there are plenty of mosquitoes and No-See-Um's for everyone. We used a Thermacell and a large fan while sitting outside and had no problem. We did not have to use spray on insect repellent. There were a few things that I did not like about the campground; very few of the sites I saw were level but with a few boards it should not be a problem. Many of the sites had standing, stagnate, water either on the site or nearby, a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Our site, and those around us, had mud on the site. A little gravel on almost all of the sites would go a long way toward improvements. The roads are paved but can be very narrow in places. If you take your time you should have no problem. Some sites are a little tight to back into because of a few trees. We did have one issue with a large dog that was left outside all the time and barked non-stop. After several complaints, the rangers did make a visit which helped the situation. Overall, the staff we had contact with were very nice and knowledgeable. The wildlife within the park is unbelievable! Deer would walk right up to your campsite. If you are not careful, the raccoons will enjoy anything not properly stored. The beach is a short walk from any campsite and they are wonderful. Best of all, they are not over crowded. Park WiFi was ok if you were near one of the buildings. AT&T/LTE service was ok, usually 1-2 bars. 50 amp service was good along with water pressure. The park store was one of the better stocked stores for a state park. Aside from the usual T-shirts and hats, they had soft drinks, milk, eggs, and other grocery items. Overall, this really is a great park and we will return. I do wish they had sewer connections. They do have two dump stations. The park was clean and well organized. Each time I visited the bathhouse, they were clean and well stocked. - dtaylor
