Very nice park although the speed bumps are really obnoxious as they are every couple hundred feet and are significant. That being said, the campground was spacious, constantly cleaned, and not too bad a drive (25 min) to the Historic area of Charleston. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a concrete pad which was great for leveling and avoiding tracking in dirt. Helpful and pleasant staff, well maintained facilities, and reasonably sized sites. WiFi fairly strong. The cable was a little fuzzy but quite viewable. The r park is situated for easy drives into Charleston, but the left turns onto Savannah Hwy are problematic at certain times of the day. We will stay here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed this campground and would return. Internal roads are paved with lots of speed bumps, so take it slow coming in. Sites are grass or compressed gravel and look mostly level. Ours (MM4) did not require jacks at all and there was plenty of room for the car off the street. Spacing between sites was small, but not tight. The 50-amp power was strong and water pressure was adequate at just under 40psi. Tables and cable TV were included, but we used our satellite antenna which worked fine from our site. Verizon phone and amplified MiFi signals were strong. Bathrooms and showers were clean and the showers had benches and hooks. The laundry room consisted of 4 washers and two dryers, somewhat small for a park of this size. The Publix market was pretty much next door, with Costco and other stores about 15 minutes away. The very nice Charleston visitor center is a 12-mile drive, and most of the sightseeing is just south of their location. Busy highway 17 runs right by the front of the park, but we didn't hear any road noise from our site. Other parts of the park are close to the road, though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. OO section is where you want to be if you have a big rig. Also D 3 & 4. Sites are nice, but the roads to the sites are a little tight, but ok. They have speed bumps so watch out and take your time. I agree with a previous person that it would be hard to make a left out of the campground with your motorhome due to traffic, but you can go down the road and go through the Publix to turn around and get a light. Nice location and its 9 miles to downtown Charlestown and its an easy drive on 17. Would stop again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground was large, very clean, and landscaped nice. We had a pull-thru with a concrete pad. Sites were large with plenty of room to park your vehicle beside your rig. The site was level. Management was nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large park on very busy Hwy 17 - almost impossible to turn left out of the park, Trains - planes and automobiles, plenty of noise to go around. One half of the morning I went to the restrooms. I decided not to use them. Poor, poor, poor in my mind. Good, power and water, Ok sized sites. Satellite not available in a lot of sites, but they have cable. Nice dog run. Friendly staff. Might look elsewhere if in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in Charleston. It's a challenge to get in and out of during rush hour. Very nice campground. Our site was in amongst the large motor homes. Great Wi-Fi, full hookup. Take some ant spray with you and spray around anything that touches the ground. Park has 5 or 6 speed bumps and 2 speed humps between the entrance and the back of the park which is a bit annoying if you are in and out much. Playground for the kids is not much, but it's a nice fairly quiet, safe place to stay. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very large park with lots of big trees, although many sites are in the open. Some sites have a gravel or paved parking area with grass between sites, others are all grass. We were fortunate to be here in dry weather; not sure I would want to be on the grass in heavy rain. Roads and grounds are well maintained. Interior asphalt roads are very narrow but sites are long and wide enough that it is no problem for a big-rig to pull into them with toad hooked up. Good variety of cable channels and Wi-Fi worked well. Restrooms were clean. Laundry room is too small (4 washers, 2 dryers) for a park this big. Because of the size of the park, many of the facilities (office, pool, laundry) are a long distance from many of the sites. Heavy traffic on US 17 makes it almost impossible to make a left turn out of the park if you are headed north when leaving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is very friendly and provides information on stores nearby that might be helpful. They also provided a $5 coupon for a local restaurant that we visited and loved the food. The sites are large with grass and concrete pads to park on. It's well maintained and there are several trash cans at the end of each row. We were able to use our Good Sam discount for the stay. We full time in our RV and this is one of the nicest parks we've visited in this area. The price was a welcome relief after coming down the east coast from Canada where everything is priced much higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, well open, grassy, maintained park. Would stay here again. Easy to access full service sites with level pads to park on. Large clean bathroom/shower building. Nice pool. The staff were all great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great spaces for big rigs (level gravel with long sites) and conveniently located to Charleston. The people who drive around are a little uptight about 'rules' and never smile. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very convenient for Charleston and I guess that is its main advantage. The campground itself is clean, but a bit soulless. The bathrooms were the worst we have seen in the last 3 months of traveling. The Wi-Fi can't cope with the numbers of pads they have. The campground is very attractive in the entrance area (around the owners home). Further back it is chance whether you have a nice green site or gravel only. The worst feature of the campground is the staff. At reception on arrival they were curt and the staff seem to spend their time driving around in golf carts checking that no rules are being broken. Don't expect a smile or a wave. Our experience of the attitude of the staff wasn't unique - our next door neighbors had a much worst experience, but that is their story not ours. The coldness of the staff attitude creates a negative atmosphere where campers are less inclined to care eg what does it matter if you leave mess when you leave? Great location, but don't expect a welcome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
About 6 miles west of I-526 on Old Savannah Highway makes for easy access. There is occasional noise from the airport and train, but didn't bother us. Interior roads are paved. Most sites have gravel or grass drives with good amount of green space between sites. Sites toward the back of the park have partial cement drives. Park is very well laid out. Sites are available with good amount of shade or almost completely open. Included Wi-Fi was very strong at our site. Verizon cell had 4 bars. Satellite TV was no problem from our site. Park just got cable TV although we didn't use it. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 months in 1 of their extended stay sites. Our site was gravel with surrounding grass. We had enough room for our 31'TT and 2 vehicles as well as plenty of room under the awning and space for the picnic table. Site was level. Staff were friendly. Laundry was small with only 4 washers and 2 dryers for entire park. Office store very small, but there's a Publix close by. Didn't use bathhouse. It was clean. Not much to do there. Has a small pool at the front, but it's right off of a busy road so we didn't use it. Also, has a small playground and a fenced in dog walk area that we didn't use. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground. Lots of room, nicely manicured lawns, shade on some lots. A little bit out of town and 30 minutes to the beach. Very enjoyable and definitely a place to return to. The only negative is the speed bumps in the road - too many. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Clean, level sites. Easy to get in and out on most sites. Wi-Fi and cable were good. We stayed here with a group and they put us all together. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, well maintained park with a site for everything from tents to large buses. Laundry facilities are, however, limited for such a large park. They have only 4 washers and 2 dryers available for over 200 sites and only 2 restroom facilities. Wi-Fi is an old Tengo system (11 Mbps) with lots of sites but it did not work while we were there. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice grassy sites with several ducks wandering around. Wear shoes. Sites easy to get in and out. Restrooms are good, but it was too cold for the pool. Close to Charleston. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Exceptional maintenance and easy access to all the sites. Fairly close to Charleston. Full hook ups, but internet was not in service. Young girl at check-in was very helpful and an asset to any business. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The front office staff was so nice. Aside from the fact that the spaces are too close together so that your front door opens onto your neighbor's sewer hook up, it's a pretty good park convenient to Charleston. They are really dog Nazi's, but there is a big dog run available. The concrete slabs are just barely long enough and then slope down to grass so it's hard on 5th wheels. Only 4 little washers for a big park and 2 dryers, so plan on doing laundry in off hours. Not even a sink in the laundry area, so bring your own handiwipes or paper towels. A lovely setting and close in. I'd come back here when visiting Charleston, but I'd request a better site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well kept RV park. 30 minutes to downtown with traffic. Publix within walking distance, Walmart 10 minutes. TengoInternet which is very slow (I don't know why anyone uses them). No cable TV available. Many different site ground cover but all seem level. Sites have enough room between them. The middle of the park is the quietest. The entry road is a series of speed bumps - a few too many for my liking if you leave the park several times a day. The pool is at the front of the park near the highway. Nice fishing pond. The staff greeted us as we departed and asked if we enjoyed our stay and welcomed us to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent RV park. Rate shown is before GS discount. They advertise as the closest campground to Charleston--maybe 25 minutes to downtown with traffic. Walmart, etc. is 10 minutes. As previous reviewer mentioned, they use TengoInternet which is very slow. But I got 4G connections from Verizon on my MiFi. They have every kind of site from grass to pea gravel to paved. Mine was pea gravel and double wide, easily long enough for my 40' RV and tow. Ask for site in the open to get satellite. Park is well laid out with ample room between sites. Some road noise on far north end of park; otherwise quiet enough. A previous reviewer mentioned speed bumps--whining in my opinion. We'd certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. Well maintained and clean. Love the place. I have one complaint: poor, out of date WiFi. "B" level WiFi must be 10 years old, and will not keep up to today's demands. Be careful entering the campground from Hwy 17 west, or turning out of the CG to Hwy 17 and going east. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, well laid out park, good internet. This park is the second park in 5 years of full timing where someone actually came out to make sure everything was good with the park, and to thank us for stopping by. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As noted elsewhere the WI-FI is very slow and difficult to connect to. They use a 3rd party service and all connections are through their server which slows it down considerably. We were there in November and the washrooms were barely warm. Traffic is very busy on the road outside the park making entry and departure tricky. There are three gas stations within a block as well as grocery and drugstore. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This was the first campground that my grand kids and I ever stayed in after first buying our RV. All sites are level and the campground is meticulously well maintained. The prices were very reasonable. The surroundings are very pretty. The office staff were not very friendly, but the owner was exceptionally kind. The pool is small, but a welcome addition and the laundry facility was really, really small and quite hot & humid. The bath & shower facilities were older, but clean. We had a good Wi-Fi signal and a clear cell signal with Sprint. We would definitely stay here again. It was very quiet and the kids found lots of friends to play with during our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground had a very "plantation" feel--huge oaks, Spanish moss, lots of trees. We were pleasantly surprised for an RV park in such an urban environment. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed all the sights of Charleston and local plantations and historic sites. The campground staff were friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable, right down to a delightful referral to a local restaurant with a breakfast buffet that was a real southern feast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to any RVers wanting to enjoy the Charleston area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice little park. The grass sites are super level and spacious. There is the biggest dog park I have ever seen. The grounds are nicely kept. Two things hold down the score a bit. There is no cable TV and if television is important to you, check your satellite or antenna before you run your jacks and hook-up. The beautiful trees block most signals and you will need to find a site with a signal. Also, traffic is awful as you enter and leave the park. It is not their fault, but it is a huge issue. That said, we enjoyed the park and would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty nice park with open areas and good sites. Most are level and easy to get in and out of. Way too many speed bumps though, and only 4 washer and 2 dryers available for the whole park. We travel full-time for work, so stay in a lot of campgrounds. I would have given this a much higher rating if not for the attitude of the security staff, primarily the one who I understand is one of the managers. We were doing nothing wrong, nor did we break any rules, but she had a definite attitude towards us. We probably will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this park. We stayed for a month. My rate is $700/month (including electric) divided by 30. This park has the feel of a state park. Much shade around the perimeter and reasonable shade in the middle. We were here for the month of July and shade was important to us. When we arrived, we were taken around the park in a golf cart and offered our choice of at least 10 different spots. The park was probably only about 50% full during our stay. The office staff was very nice. While hooking up I discovered that only half of the 50amp service was working. I called the office and within 5 minutes 2 maintenance workers arrived to change a breaker and fix the problem. Major grocery store (Publix) about 1/4 mile away. Wal-Mart and Home Depot about 3 miles. We would definitely stay here again. Now, the downside. Turn in for the park is about 150 yards from an incredibly busy intersection during heavy traffic. Forget about turning left into the park or turning left out of the park during those times. Traffic backs up past the turn when the light is red. The swimming pool is in the very front of the park (near the heavy traffic) and no bathroom at the pool. The only bathroom is in the middle of the park so it's a long hike from the pool. I chose to drive. Ants were horrible during our stay. Within 24 hours, we had ants in our cabinets. The ants were "everywhere" and we weren't the only people with ant issues. Our neighbors actually borrowed our ant repellent. The RV Park says they regularly treat for ants but based on the number we saw, not near enough. They were coming up all four jacks, the water hose, and electrical cord. I went on the attack with liquid sprayed around and under the coach. Also sprinkled granule repellent around my area. Lastly, the park isn't really close to any of the area attractions; e.g., beach, downtown, plantations. Everything "touristy" was 12-15 miles away. All of the negatives aside, we had a wonderful stay at this park and we would definitely return to this park if we are ever back in Charleston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week while visiting Charleston. The sites are very level and landscaped nicely with stones. They are easy to get into and out. The pool is very nice but about a quarter mile from most campsites. No cable and acquiring a local TV station was difficult with our antenna. Our only complaint was the poor Wi-Fi. The office said they knew of the problem and were fixing it soon. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground for visiting Charleston. Staff was helpful and pleasant to deal with. Level sites, paved drives, gravel sites, some with shade. Plenty of room for pets and children. Close enough to enjoy Charleston without the hassle of traffic. Walmart, shops, and restaurants are close by. Satellite worked great. Needs more laundry facilities and less speed bumps. Some spots are tight if you have slides. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park! Neat,clean,well groomed, lots of room for large rigs, quiet, nice pool, close to Charleston. Negatives are the slow Wi-Fi and the limited dryers/washers in the laundry room. Also, charged $3.32 for my daughter to spend one night when she came up from FL to pick up our grand-daughters as we are heading north to AK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is very well maintained, nice sites - grass, gravel, and cement pads in a good location. Three basic problems: Wi-Fi is FREE, but most of the time it does not work and is sooooooo very slow - might as well not have it. No cable TV and only 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. For the rate charged, Wi-fi should work, cable TV should be available, and there needs to be more washers and dryers. Not a good value which is why a rating of 5. Time for some upgrades to services!! Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A spacious beautiful well kept park. The office staff was prompt, courteous and friendly. We were here 4 nights while visiting Charleston. I would stay here for a extended period of time. The only thing stopping me giving it a 10 is that there are too few washers and driers for a campground this size. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very good campground, and we are picky. First the bad. Wi-Fi is not very strong and often overwhelmed. Also, access out of the park is into a high traffic area, so better turn with the flow and U turn toward Charleston. There are 13 small yellow walls across the road referred to as speed humps and they could damage your tow bar (but there is room to unhook/hook up at the entry). And, it is somewhat difficult to get satellite TV reception due to tall trees. Now the good part. The park is big. The pads vary from grass to gravel to cement, but all are wide and long. It is clean. Staff is helpful. And, for bonus points from us, this has the biggest off leash dog run we have ever encountered. It is quiet. This is the best park for a visit to Charleston and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just stayed here for 3 nights and we enjoyed it. The park is very quiet and the people staying at the campground were all extremely friendly. This is a no frills kind of place, it has a small playground, a pool (but we had no use for that), and a dog run. The dog run is nothing more than a fenced in piece of land but our dogs loved it! We took them 4 times a day and they were good and tired after each trip. I felt very safe here and would definitely stay here again. It's pretty close to Downtown Charleston and it's next door to a Publix so the location is quite convenient. My only complaints are that the bathrooms could have been cleaner and the speed bumps were brutal, I will never understand why they have so many in an RV Park. One last thing, they are VERY strict about their 10 mph speed limit. We were going 12 and they stopped us and told us to slow down. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are looking for a secure campground with level sites that are big rig friendly. Our 5th wheel is 37' with a slide on each side and the pull thru site we were assigned was excellent. We are not looking for a lot of extras as we camp and see the area rather than camp and chill in the campground. The speed umps are a little annoying but they do keep the speed down. The wi-fi connectivity was intermittent but not a "biggy" to us. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in April at $35.80/night with Good Sam. Oak Plantation is a very nice, big rig friendly campground. The staff is very efficient and accommodating. We stayed in site D4, which is a nice pull-through, full hook up site positioned directly across from the cabins. There are no trees on this site and the gravel is very small, making your chairs etc., sink. We did not utilize the two convenience station’s; however, I did peak in and they were clean but older. The Wi-Fi was intermittent at best even with our booster. No cable TV was offered and we had to pay nightly for a fire ring. The fishing pond is inhabited by alligators and there are no trails, just the roadways around the campground. Overall, this is a convenient location in Charleston and we enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Check in was quick and the office staff was friendly and pleasant. Our pull through site was an average size but was easy to get into. Our site and the entire park was very neat and tidy. The pool and surround are small but nice and clean. The Wi-Fi is a bit tricky to connect to, but once you figure it out seems to work okay. Cable TV would be a nice feature to add for a longer stay, but since we were only here for a couple of days we were fine with just the regular stations we could pick up with our antenna. Well located for access to Charleston and nearby attractions. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate was $35.80 tax included after Good Sam discount. Five night stay. Wi-Fi: .31 up/ .70 down max. Tengo. Very difficult to connect and very difficult to send email. Bathhouses over 100 yards (300 feet) from about 40% of the sites. No campfires. No at site garbage. No outside kitchen sink. Water hook up leaked. No screening between sites. Sites are level. Water pressure and electricity are good. Black/Grey water connection is good. Excellent picnic table. Grounds kept very clean. Water surrounds park where highways do not, but highways are well screened. Nice Publix grocery store near. Very good laundry. Interior roads paved and in very good shape. Nice playground and pool. This campground is for large motorhomes. It can handle small stuff (we are a 17' HTT (pop out)), but is designed for folks who shower, cook and clean in their rigs. Plenty of maneuvering room and anything close to an overhanging limb trimmed back. We'll look elsewhere next time for a fire ring. From a 10 subtract 1 each, Wi-Fi, fire ring, bugs, kitchen sink, site garbage, water leak, bathhouse distance. Add 1 for extraordinary maintenance, cleanliness, play area and road condition exceeding expected. To another comment: There are 12 very effective speed humps within 1/2 mile of main road. Net score 7. For a Motorhome it is a 10. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is one of the best CG we've stayed in. It is spacious, well kept, good roads, and all the facalities one needs. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. It is just a few miles from downtown Charleston and attractions. We certainly will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large, level sites. Campground was clean, neat, and quiet. The campground is near a Publix and Walmart and is an easy drive to Charleston historic area and fine dining. We brought our three toy poodles who enjoyed the fenced in dog run. The staff was very competent and friendly and the owners even comped us 3 nights from last summer when we were scheduled to stay but had to leave early due to electrical problems with our RV. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here multiple times, and always enjoy it. It is always neat and clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The park has always been orderly and quiet whenever we have stayed there. The negatives are: 1) no cable, 2) very poor Wi-Fi. The main entrance road to the sites is long and straight with several severe speed bumps to keep traffic to 10 MPH. If you are going in & out often, this can be pretty annoying. Overall, a good place and we will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our third campsite on our own as we are new campers. We are in our 30's and have three dogs. We were looking for a fenced in dog run and they have it here. The speed limit is 10 mph which makes it very safe to walk around. Our site was GG2 and it's not paved and not private at all. Since we have the dogs we like to stay away from all the action so they don't bark or bother other campers. We asked the gentleman when we checked in but because of the wet ground he recommended we stay at the site because it can be very soft otherwise. The site is very well cared for. I do wish the dog run was split in two, one for big dogs and one for small. We have big dogs and when the small dogs bark continuously while the owners put them on a leash it is very irritating. A leash-off dog park is leash off not leash-on and then let your dog bark constantly. People have complained about the road noise and we haven't heard anything and we are pretty close to the front. The Wi-Fi is horrible. We are closest to the main house so the signal should have been the best. We just tethered off our Sprint cell phones. Pulling out onto the Savannah Pkwy left from the site is very dangerous. Our neighbor arrived around 8pm and asked us if it was OK he run his generator because the site he is on didn't have 50 amp. Not so great. Overall, I am not sure if we would recommend this site based on our personal preferences. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of the nicest public campgrounds on the east coast. The sites are level. There are plenty of pull-troughs for big rigs, and there is no problem getting satellite reception, especially if you let them know in advance that you have that requirement. We use a Verizon air card for Internet and got a strong signal. We stayed in the park over Christmas and it was fairly empty. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We didn’t care much for the speed bumps. This campground is close to anything you may want to do while in Charleston. Restaurants, shopping, and the tourist sites are all within easy driving distance. Diesel is available right next door at the Hess station with easy access. We will stay at this campground anytime we are in Charleston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects monthly stay. This is a great park for visiting the Charleston area. Sites are large and level. All hook ups worked well except for the Wi-Fi which was spotty at best. The staff is very friendly and keep the grounds very clean. Entering and exiting the park can be tricky based on time of day and direction you are traveling. Heavy traffic at exit mid to late afternoon. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects discount and taxes. This is a great park with large spaces, good roads, level sites and beautiful trees. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. It's an easy drive to downtown Charleston, approx. 10 miles. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. This is the only park that I have ever given a 10 rating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park with level sites. Lots of pull throughs with FHU. Clean modern facilities. Basically a huge open area with rows and rows of sites some with pads, some on grass, some on stone. Site size depends on section. Traffic noise pretty constant from roads on the perimeter. Was given a site under a large Oak and was shelled with nuts and debris from the tree. Thanksgiving potluck was great! My only complaint is a speed hump about every 60 feet and I was way in the back so it was very annoying. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground over the recent Thanksgiving holiday. To my great surprise staff was in the office and on duty on the grounds when we arrived on Thanksgiving Day. Staff was very helpful and courteous. In spite of how full the campground was it was very quiet – there is more background noise from nearby roads and the railroad but we did not find that to be offensive. There is no “woodsy” ambiance, rather the feeling is more like a residential neighborhood with regular rows of sites. The grounds are very neatly kept and litter-free. Campground staff patrol regularly. There is a pool but it is located near the entrance to the campground, well away from the vast majority of campsites. All sites are level; many are pull throughs and many have a concrete pad. Grassy sites are available, too. Most sites have at least a little shade for a portion of the day. The size of individual sites can vary; some are on the small side. The majority are moderately spacious unless you have a site on the end of a row – these sites have the most “elbow room.” If you want to have a campfire you must rent a free-standing fire pit from the office. The bathhouses are very nice – modern, well-appointed and relatively clean considering the heavy use they saw over the weekend. The campground store does not have much in the way of groceries but there are so many local places to get food that this is not an issue. Rate reflects total of six in my party. My only issues with this campground were 1) the Wi-Fi – free, but difficult to get a connection and very slow speed once you are connected, and 2) speed bumps every 50 yards on the main thoroughfare. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park with an excellent, friendly staff. They have a very large fenced dog run which we appreciate. The sites are large and level. Close to area restaurants, shopping and Charleston. The negatives are (1) no cable - that is OK because there are several digital air channels. however, (2) the Wi-Fi - though free, did not work at the sites. We were able to access from the office. It is free Wi-Fi but if it does not work it does not matter that it is free. I'd rather pay and have good service. We would go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground: attractive, well-maintained, very long sites. Lots of trees (some sites will have problems with satellite access). All roads are paved; most sites are gravel, some are paved, some are grass. Numerous, convenient trash containers. The Wi-Fi is free, but it is Tengonet and we couldn't get connected. However,Verizon has 4G service that worked well. The road out front is busy, but it is a wide thoroughfare and there is no problem getting here. I gave it a "9" rather than a "10" just because nothing is perfect. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate show represents a Good Sam's discount. Overall the camp has many great points. It is very quiet at night, paved interior roads, very large sites, many are concrete, some are gravel, all are pretty level requiring little adjustment in setup. Water, sewer, electric on the full hookup sites are all well placed for ease of use. The points that drag the rating down were: no cable TV (several good air channels); Wi-Fi offered but I never could get hooked up; speed bumps (way too many). These points may not mean much to some. There was lots of shade, plenty of trash locations close to sites without having to take stuff half way across the campground. We loved being able to walk at night as the park is fairly well lit and well arranged. The showers were clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great place. All sites appear to be level, and our gravel based site was smooth and clean. The entire park is clean and very well maintained. The staff was friendly and most helpful with questions. Even though we use the facilities in our RV, I usually check out the parks restrooms. The ones here were all tile and were very clean and fresh. They do not have cable TV (a 1 point deduction) and their Wi-Fi was weak and slow.(Another point deduction). The park is convenient to down town Charleston, but traffic on US 17 can be really busy. However, we will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is beautifully landscaped and exceptionally well maintained. Although it is a bit of a distance for sight seeing in Charleston, it is not a difficult drive and our stay of 8 nights was most enjoyable. The sites are spacious with nice level concrete pads. We had plenty of room for our 33' motorhome and car on a dolly on our pull-thru site. Fuel and a supermarket are less than 1/4 mile away. The staff were all knowledgeable and extremely friendly and helpful. The only drawback that we found was that the laundry is a bit small for the size of the park. We were sorry to have to leave this park and we highly recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and well maintained campground. Sites are very well set up and good. We came in at 10:00 a.m. and lady in office said their rules didn't allow early check in and after suggesting leaving early to compensate, she said that was against the rules. She did finally allow us to set up early. There are good paved roads with 13 speed bumps that you have to use to get to your camp circle. Although there are many networks in the park, Wi-Fi doesn't work in some locations, we were in N5. This campground is far from downtown Charleston. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful, well maintained campground with lots of large trees. Roads in the campground are paved which is a real plus. The staff is friendly, but not always knowledgeable about the sites. We were here 10 days and saw someone different each time we were in the office. The trees are beautiful but make satellite reception difficult. Staff did not have information on what sites reception would be best (If you visit the park sites in the middle of the OO,PP, and QQ rows are your best bet if you want satellite.) The pool is nice, but close to the road. I would have rated this campground 10 except for the laundry which is inadequate for a park this size. It only has four washers, is very small with no room for folding and is very hot. Also, the Wi-Fi is the worst I have ever experienced in a campground. I have had dial up that was faster, and the signal was very inconsistent. There were days when I could not get a connection at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great find. This is a gorgeous park with huge trees, great inner roads, and big and wide pull-throughs. The campground was immaculate and the staff very helpful with plenty of advice on things to see and do while in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting, spacious lots, quiet, extremely well kept. Some lots had concrete pads, some were grassy. It's very convenient to downtown Charleston. We will definitely return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very neat, clean and quiet park. Pull through sites are packed gravel and long enough to hold a 40' fifth wheel w/long bed truck. Front PT's have no shade (closer to pool and entrance) and the back area PT's have more sites that are shaded. Back in's are mostly shaded. Some sites grass or pad but seemed to be smaller. Bathrooms need updated and have evening cleanings (marked yes & no above). Has a small laundry and pool for the park size. But they are nice. There is no cable TV and too many speed bumps. Thus the 7 1/2- 8 rating. Used a coupon given for Gilligans: good food $-$$. Will return since nothing mentioned was bad enough to prevent a nice stay! Oh, listened to cows moo and saw a red fox in the morning hours, 6-7 am, along the fence line. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great location for exploring Charleston and the surrounding islands. Office has sightseeing brochures, etc. Speed bumps through the park that many other reviewers complained about didn't bother us a bit. Our FHU site (G8) was a good size, with a long gravel parking pad and some grass. Also, many trees in our section for some shade. FHU sites in the back of the park are smaller and gravel only. Many conveniences are right next door to the campground (grocery, drug store, gas stations, fast food). Beware of ants! The people camping next to us awoke to a coach full of ants one morning! We found them just in time: crawling up our power cord. Plan to spray around the perimeter of your coach, set traps, etc. No cable TV here and stations available with antenna/digital converter box were very spotty. Would definitely stay here again when in the area or just passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean quiet campground. There is a nice fishing pond. The pool is small but very nice for the kids. Our Wi-Fi was in and out but worked most of the time. The sites are large. Our full hook up was fine but we noticed some sites required very long sewer hoses. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a clean, quiet park handy to Charleston attractions. Most sites have some degree of shade; however, a few are directly in the sun. The sites in what I suppose is the newer section have very long compacted gravel pull throughs while some of the older sites have concrete pads which may not accommodate some longer trailers and 5ers. Please note that the entrance to the park is located on a major road and is very busy during rush hour so try to time to arrival and departure accordingly. I would have given this park an 8 if it had cable TV hookups. We would definitely stay at this park again when visiting the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Oak plantation is a great campground. Very clean and well kept. They're always working to keep everything looking very nice. The pool is such a nice feature on a hot day. The showers and bathrooms are super clean. The owners are very helpful and very kind. We have camped there for many years and we definitely will be back there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park with great paved roads (don't care for the speed bumps) and long, gravel pull through sites (spacious enough for our 37' 5th wheel and F350 truck, then another car on backside when our friends visited us). There was grass next to site so we could play bacci ball. Trees and well manicured park make this a pretty park. We got good satellite reception and there were no problems with the Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Pet friendly. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was wonderful and close to many Charleston attractions. They didn't have cable TV, but we picked up local channels with an antenna. Wi-Fi was slow but free. Shopping was close by which my wife loved. The roads and sites were paved. This is my second time visiting and will return again. Thanks to the staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is the perfect location for visiting Charleston. We stayed for a week. Most of the sites are very spacious pull thrus, some with shade, and the grounds are manicured. We had problems with our power pole and, within minutes of our reporting the issue, had immediate resolution. The quick response was impressive considering this was over a holiday weekend. The pool is small, but the weather was so hot it was a welcomed amenity. While the laundry room is very small for the size of the park, there is a laundromat across the street. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a month and it was quiet and clean.Yes they are strict about speed and safety.Management makes sure you understand this if you wish to stay here. People in camp store give the customer their full attention when your in store-they don't take phone calls while your there. We enjoyed our stay and will come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The people that own it and work there are very annoying. If you don't have your car tag up they track you down. They have many rules, i.e. if you arrive before noon they charge you for the previous day. But they don't tell you that when you make a reservation. There is not one, not two but 8-10 speed bumps. The pool was shut down for a couple of days right after the Memorial Day weekend, but there were still quite a few campers there. The hook ups are good, although many of the sites are very treed so you can not get satellite reception. The sites are level. Some are nice gravel sites, but most are grass, but the price is the same. It's hard to pull out left due to traffic. I would find another site next time we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great experience. We booked this site last minute and glad we tried it. It was only available for one night (Memorial Day Weekend). The campground was clean and well maintained. Friendly staff and clean well maintained bathhouse. They do have speed bumps because the roads are so well maintained you can actually speed. Next time in Charleston this is the campground we will use. We stayed the next two nights at the Landon KOA 14 miles from Charleston SC. That was a mistake we will not make again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon arrival the grounds looked to be well groomed, mowed and very clean. The playground area is small. It contains 4 swings and one small set of monkey bars. The trash cans sit at the end of each row. Most interior roads are paved. The road leading into the campground has loads of speed bumps. The 10 mph speed limit is strictly enforced. The dog run is huge. But, it is located well away from the main camping area. The free internet here was worth what I paid for it. It was spotty at best, painfully slow, and several bugs tried to find their way onto my laptop. The site (O4) we where in was mostly level. The entire campground was reasonably level. We had a concrete pad and some gravel around it. There were some trees and a few hedge bushes here and there between the sites. The pool was a long way from the campsites and was right next to the main highway. It was clean and in good repair. The bathhouse was clean and in good repair. The location is a good one for exploring the Charleston area. But, getting out onto the hwy can be a bit tricky. The staff here has been mostly friendly. I did get a look at a gator in their pond. It was around 6 foot long. Overall I’d give this place a low 6. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. Friendly staff. Speed bumps are a pain but understand the need. Especially since the entry is a long straight road. We had a nice big pull-through site. Level and gravel. Easy to get to downtown Charleston. Laundry room was a disappointment. Four washers and only two dryers?!?! Since we don't have laundry on board, laundry rooms are very important to me. I have decided to start deducting a point if I am not happy with the laundry facilities. Big laundromat across the street so I went there. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not our first choice when making our reservations but we are glad the other place was full. The staff was efficient and friendly. Sites were spacious and easy to access other than the speed bumps. Grocery/food/fuel shops very close by. Downtown Charleston is a 15 minute drive. No cable but received 20 digital channels on antenna. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is based on Good Sam discount. The site and facilities were adequate for a short stay. Place is well maintained with strict rules and huge speed humps to keep everyone at 10 mph or less. There is a pool with no clubhouse or bathhouse facility, no exercise room, and no cable TV. Would have rated this park higher except for poor business practices. We made a reservation 2 months ago with a nonrefundable deposit and an agreed upon total cost and number of days. We reconfirmed this reservation the day before arrival. We feel that this constituted a legitimate contract. However, when we arrived we were charged another 15%. When we questioned the accuracy, the owner very rudely announced that his prices were subject to change without notice and that his taxes had gone up. 15%? No mention of course about our nonrefundable deposit, so we were stuck. There were plenty of open sites, so we suggest avoiding a reservation with a deposit and be prepared for unannounced price increases. We will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is handy to Charleston and sites of interest. It's clean and quiet. We did not pay for the sewerage option. Nice green grass in April. That's a real treat for us Northlanders! Laundry is clean and handy. Speed bumps are frequent, but reasonable and do keep the speeds under control. Friendly folks at the office were a real treat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ditto everyone else says, WI-FI is from Tango and is pitifully slow, had to switch over to my smart phone. Speed bumps are a real pain, but the sites are long and mostly pull thru's. Some have concrete, but most are stone, fairly level. Good electric, water pressure is a little low, 15 over the air TV channels. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Paved roads and sites. Trees are very tall and evenly spaced out. Small fishing lake on property. Price reflects Good Sam Discount. Shopping within a couple of miles. Everyone was very co-operative. Wi-Fi is free but slow. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a week while sightseeing the Charleston area. Good location for the Charleston area sights, although it is out just a bit. Facilities are clean. We have stayed at this park in the past and still our only complaint are the speed bumps. If all of the bumps were rounded off it would not be so hard on the equipment. It is a long drive back into the park and there are lots of speed bumps, so be prepared. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park to use to visit Charleston. James Island County park (with the holiday festival of lights) was not available. Many roomy pull through sites for big rigs. Reasonable rate with Good Sam discount, very helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to stay when visiting Charleston. We've been here several times over the Thanksgiving holiday and as always we had a great stay. They still could use to upgrade the playground and considering the number of sites, the laundry facilities are a bit skimpy (4 washers and 2 large dryers). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice sized level spots with good utilities except for sewer which is back farther than electric pedestal and water spigot. Showers were clean and modern. We stayed in an open area for satellite reception, and our Verizon air card worked well as did our AT&T and T-Mobile phones.For this price they should provide cable TV though.We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've stayed at this campground before and would return again. Pro's: Good location, nice level sites, plenty of elbow room, fair price. Con's: Ants, spotty Wi-Fi. We've only had ants twice in 6 years. Both times here. Pre-treat your site when you arrive and avoid the issue. Having said that we'll return again, if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I loved this place. The sites are grass and full of oak trees. Was like staying in a city park. They had a book exchange in the office and also rented ($2.00) DVDs. No cable but could get a lot of channels over the air. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Positives, Good location for sightseeing in the Charleston area, level sites, plenty of shade, staff was friendly on check-in, and reasonably quiet for being between two major roads. Concerns, units close together where we were assigned, low water pressure on our site, a sewer odor outside of bathroom, doors on stalls in bathrooms did not close, too many speed bumps and the pool is a long way from most sites. Overall a good experience but far from the best campground that we have used. We will use it again if in the Charleston area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An almost perfect RV park, the absolute BEST we've ever stayed at. The retired aircraft carrier USS YORKTOWN is a must see. They do have problems with their commercial Wi-Fi provider. We had to go to a fast food restaurant to get Internet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge park that is set up to feel open. A great place to stop and visit the Charleston area. Huge sites that are easy to get into. While the rest rooms are clean, they have a strong perfume smell which is very unpleasant. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two weeks. Grounds well maintained. Bathrooms and showers very clean. Did not use the pool. There are a lot of speed bumps, but they didn't seem to pose a problem for anyone here. Office personnel were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Yes there are speed bumps but with a long, level paved road I can see how controlling speed would be a problem here, and they are serious about it. The pool is small and near the highway but was clean and usable. Traffic on route 17 (park entrance) during rush hours is extremely heavy. Sites are reasonably large, grass, trees, and landscaping is well maintained. Park was quiet when we were here. I think if you are looking for lots of activities, wildlife (4 legged kind), hiking trails, a water park for dogs, and a park like setting James Island may be a better choice for Charlotte. This park was good as a quiet adult destination for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My stay at this park was an overnighter so I chose water and electric only. Nice level grass site, some evening shade and the WiFi worked well. The bath house nearest to me was spotless and very nice. If speed bumps are your thing this is the place. Some are so close you are not over one and your wheels are up against the next one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful area, but a few negatives that really took away from things here. The facility is really large with a few hundred sites. However, the pool is right on the busy road, so you feel a little out of place wearing a swimsuit in front of the highway. Be prepared for some insane speed bumps, too. Our site was near the back, and there were no less than a dozen speed bumps we had to cross each time we left, some of which scraped the bottom of our car. If you're pulling something low to the ground, find somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you plan to camp near Charleston, you have to stay here. It is awesome. The sites are huge and shady. The bath houses are clean, laundry was efficient,nice fishing pond. They had very nice pool furniture and kept pool very clean. We found this to be centrally located to everything you want to do in the area. We enjoyed riding our bikes each evening and will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice with huge sites and manicured grounds. Nice bathrooms and showers. WiFi did not work for us. We were about 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. The staff was very friendly. They do seem have a lot of speed bumps, but just go slow. We had a very shady site, but they did have sites with no trees for the satellite folks. Sites are sand or gravel. They seem to have a lot of activities, but we were too busy to partake. We would go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had read the previous reviews and were hesitant about this campground, but we went anyway and decided we loved their big/spacious pull through sites. The laundry room was spotless, and they were very pet friendly. Previous posts talked about the speed bumps -- and yes, they are there so watch out. They have security watching to make sure no one is going over the 10 mph speed limit and the Wi-Fi doesn't work well. Those are all non-issues for us. We thought it was well located to Kiawah Island beach area. Plus it was only a beautiful 10 minute drive into Charleston; 15 over to Folly Beach. We would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Where do I begin, other than this campground is the WORST campground my family has ever stayed at. If you want to get eaten up with mosquitoes and infested with ants/fleas, then this is the place to stay! After our 1st night we noticed ants everywhere inside our camper. My husband went to the office to see if someone could come and put out some bug/ant repellent and was told that, "we don't spray for bugs." She then showed him the Terra ant killer which was 5 bucks for him to purchase! "This works well!" You have to walk to the main road where there is a row of trash cans to place your trash. This is very inconvenient. The speed bumps are ridiculous, and you may need to have your car serviced after leaving!!! The lake in which you can fish without a license is more like a pond and mosquito cesspool. The pool is located right on Hwy 17 with no privacy! Plus there isn't a bathhouse at the pool; you have to walk a country mile just to use the bathroom. So please go to the restroom before entering the pool. The bathroom stalls don't have locks on them, and the doors stay open for all the world to see. The only POSITIVE thing I can say about this place is the shower stalls are clean! By the way, just down the road is a Super Wal-Mart so don't go to Publix for groceries. They are so expensive! Another thing the owners of this campground fail to mention on the site and phone. So what if this campground is the closet to Charleston? I would rather sleep in my car! Go down to James Island instead. What I saw of that park is really nice! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed here for about a week in June. First, let me say your choices are fairly limited in Charleston, and this park is one of the closer ones to the Old Town (tourist) part of the city. It is clean and relatively quiet. Now, we will confirm and elaborate on some things that have already been stated by other campers. The WiFi here is so slow it simply cannot be used by anyone other than very casual surfing. If you work or need a decent connection, you will not be able to use theirs. The speed bumps are more than an annoyance. After a week of going over them, we could not wait to leave. One day, while driving our car to our site, and driving the perimeter of the park to at least avoid a couple of them, the owner chased me down and warned me about "speeding." I was driving in at around 15 miles per hour (limit is 10). When my wife went to the office the next day, she was also warned that they would not tolerate "speeding in the park." Be warned. These people mean business and will not hesitate to call you down if you "misbehave." Great for a vacation right? Just like the Marriott! We will make plans next time we vist Charleston, to stay at the James Island County Park. It's a bit more expensive, but has all the amenities of this place, is a little closer to town, and you probably won't be chased down for driving 15 miles an hour! (Price is with Good Sams). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our favorite park. It's always immaculately groomed and maintained, and we don't mind those often complained about speedbumps at all (controls the riff raff population). Dog friendly and our four dogs consider it home away from home. Easy access to gorgeous Charleston and Kiawah Island: so much to do in the area. One pet peeve / complaint but it concerns guests, not the park. Although owners strive to insure folks handle and clean up after their pets, shame on those guests who repeatedly let their pre-teen and younger children walk their dogs around the campground. Ever see a young child clean up a dog's waste? That ain't gonna happen, so be reasonable parents! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week. Park is nicely keep and pretty but we were put way in the back in back row with people that seem to live here. I don't know why as there were empty spots up front. Noise from roads behind park at times was very loud, especially firetrucks. Water is terrible, even through our filter. We had to buy water to drink and make coffee. You are a long way to town and things to see. There are no refunds if you want to leave early. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here for a week, not far from downtown Charleston. Interior road is paved, site is grassy with nice shade tree, but got dog satellite reception as well as TV. Large park and plenty of places to walk dog. Have a huge enclosed dog park which we liked as we could let our 3 beagles off their leases. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Restroom and showers are nice an very clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. We stayed here in a 43 foot motorhome in a back in site in the M row. The concrete pad was a little small for our rig but the site was level and reasonably wide so that we weren't on top of our neighbors. The park is pretty well treed (there was a large oak tree directly behind us that hung over the rig) and the trees appear to be well taken care of. There were severe storms with high winds during one day of our stay and we didn't notice any downed limbs. Because of the trees, satellite reception is difficult however. Local TV reception was sketchy. The staff was friendly and the checkin process was quick. The park is about 10 miles from downtown with shopping nearby. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Of all the campgrounds we have stayed in, this is the best maintained and cleanest. All sites are level with properly working utilities. The speed bumps can be annoying but do control speeding in the park. The sites are not huge but large enough for your RV and toad parking next to it. The Wi-Fi works well, but is Tengo slooooow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, shady, quiet campground just outside Charleston. Lots of space between sites. No cable TV, but our antennae picked up several network channels. We don't tow a vehicle, and there are no campgrounds in Charleston or on the bus route. We were concerned about what to do with our cats while we were sightseeing, but the Visitor's Center has covered RV parking for just $10 all day. Although we got hot walking around town, our pets were plenty cool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a spacious (long and wide) pull-through site. The roads were paved and roomy with tons of speed bumps; I guess they must be extra serious about their speed limit. All the sites were grass and mostly level: we needed a board on one side. The campground had gorgeous landscaping with plenty of space between sites and mature trees. Our campsite was near the clean bathhouse and had a picnic table. We had no trouble finding the park, and it was easy to access it from the road. The location was very convenient compared to other parks in the area; it was 25 minutes to the Fort Sumter ferry. The park Wi-Fi seemed to be fine, but we used our Verizon Aircard instead, and it worked great. The playground was pretty minimal, but the kids seemed to enjoy it. Our price did not include sewer and was with the Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a really beautiful park as far as looks go. It does have WiFi which requires signing on every time you want to go on line. The speed bumps are deal breakers to us. There is about 15 of them and they are awfully hard on the rig. They have no cable TV and due to the amount of huge trees it is hard to find a signal for your satellite. Several people just gave up while we were here because they couldn't lock on. It took us several hours, but we finally got locked in. WE find it expensive ($675/mo) for what is offered. The water pressure is very low also. The cement pad pull throughs at the back of the park are nice and wide but require going in and out over all the speed bumps. They have a captive audience because they are the closest RV park to Charleston. If you love live oaks with moss and don't mind speed bumps, stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a really nice campground literally in a grove of oak trees with Spanish Moss. Had roomy sites, and was well laid out. Most were pull-throughs. Campground is convenient to Charleston and all the city has to offer. We enjoyed our short stay en route to Savannah. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is nice enough. But after 3 or 4 days of the many, many speed bumps I was ready to move on. I'd really begun to dread going in or out of the place when having to deal with the bumps. They are excessive and irritating. Location is good for sight seeing, but the traffic around the campground is horrendous and it's hard to turn out onto the main road most of the time. The pool looks fine but sits about 30 yards from the main highway. Not only would you be stared at by passing motorists but the noise would be incredible. Consequently no one ever used it. Walgreens, Publix and Waffle House are within walking distance. If not for the bumps I would have given this place a higher rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's a nice park. It's very clean and has friendly and efficient staff. All utilities work well. WiFi signal is the best I've seen, although TengoInternet's insistence upon logging in nearly every time is a nuisance. Pool is right on the highway with no protective screening or planting. As stated in other posts, there is no cable TV, and satellite reception is quite difficult due to the many mature shade trees. Digital broadcast TV is adequate if you don't mind network programming. Verizon signal is very strong, both voice and broadband. Water in the park is overly softened, making everything slippery. Good for plumbing, but tastes brackish. Suggest you purchase a jug of spring water at the nearby Publix supermarket for coffee and drinking. Park has too many speedbumps! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park with mature trees between sites. Paved interior roads, pads are concrete or gravel. Full hookups conveniently placed. Mostly pull throughs, some back ins. Friendly and efficient staff. Credit cards accepted. In order to encourage 10 MPH speed limit, they have installed extreme 0.1 MPH speed bumps. Picnic tables, but no fire rings. Pool. Very good TV and Verizon signals. Propane on site sold by volume, not tank size. No recycling of any kind. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rating should be a 10, but to be a 10, it has to be perfect. This campground is very, very close to a 10. The pull through sites are wide and long enough for a 42' coach with a toad. The coach sits on well packed gravel and there is grass on each side. There were plenty of trees, but we were in a site that did not have trees which worked well since there is no cable TV, had to rely on the dish. Other areas of the campground (mostly electric only sites) were heavy with trees, which made for a really nice appearance. The grounds are well kept, the staff friendly. The sites are well marked so we did not need anyone to lead us. Good shopping and other services are nearby. The pool looked nice, but we did not use it. Water pressure and electricity were constant. The campground has easy access from the north, but from the south you may have to wait a bit on traffic. If you are going to be in the Charleston area for a day, week or even longer, this places deserves careful consideration. We will definitely be back and soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fantastic campground. The staff is friendly and helpful, everything was spotless, and our site was gravel and plenty big. There is a playground for children and the pool was very clean. The Wi-Fi was free and good. It is close to downtown and Folly beach is a short drive as is James County Park We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Save yourself some grief and camp elsewhere. Unfriendly from check in to departure. Security guard rude. Pool uncovered and open but wouldn't let kids swim it. Charged $5 a night for campfire ring rental and did not want to deliver to site. Ridiculous, I never would give anywhere a bad review but can't help myself this time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two nights. It is an attractive campground which must be beautiful when all of the foliage is out. The staff was both friendly and helpful. Bathroom facilities convenient and clean. Close proximity to a wide variety of big box outlets for shopping. Only drawback is no cable TV. However, watching television is not our top priority and over-the-air reception was excellent. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a beautiful park among many oak trees. Satellite reception can be difficult. The only negative is the many speed bumps to keep the speed down to 10 mph; it works! Personnel are very friendly. There is a nice store, great fenced dog area, and well maintained, large sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well organized campground; spacious sites with trees sprinkled throughout. Very convenient to Charleston sites. The biggest drawback for us were the speed bumps that cross the main road of the campground. These were impressive and shook the car, not to mention the motorhome. Since we were parked further back in the campground, we were forced to cross 6-8 of these bumps each time we entered and exited the grounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely laid out spaces with adequate room for slides and toad parking. The sites are level, some hard surfaced, some grass and gravel. Campground is well maintained, clean and easily accessible. Hwy 17 can be very heavy with traffic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park, nestled amongst large oak trees, giving us shade, but without the closed in feeling, as sites were quite spacious. Good Wi-Fi, and we were able to use our satellite dish with no problem. Staff was pleasant. We stayed here for 10 days, and would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely laid out park. Mixture of gravel, grass, and concrete sites. We were promised a pull through, but with the rain they were concerned about our weight and that we might sink. We got instead a back-in concrete site. It was fine, but in the trees where we could not get satellite. Wi-Fi was a hit or miss. Mostly miss for us. It would work for a while and then be totally gone for a while. Luckily, our Verizon air card worked well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Oak Plantation is a lovely setting, located close to all the Charleston activities. Our site was nice and level, easy in and out. Our satellite didn't function because of the great old trees. One day without TV is not a deal breaker. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Roads here are new asphalt. Most sites are wide, 30 to 35 feet X 60 feet long with gravel or grass. You can pick type of site you wish at check in if site is open. This park is well taken care of, and you can see it. Our site had a table, 50 amps, water, sewer, and no fire ring. Park will get you one if you need it. Pool is in front of park, no problem as you have a parking lot close by. Park is very large in size and a great place to walk, bike, or walk the dog. Super Wal-Mart about three miles and lots of places to shop close by. We could pick up number of TV channels over the air and Sat dishes are no problem on most sites. Verizon cell phone worked well here. On Wi-Fi, this is the only small problem we found. Park is on DSL with download speeds of 684kbs and 123kbs upload. This size park should have a min. of 3.0 GB of bandwidth. You will find the system stopped if a number of people are on at the same time. Good part it is free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean campground with large sites. Price was very good. We stayed here 3 nights waiting on a reservation elsewhere, but certainly enjoyed it here. Convenient to Charleston with much to do and see. Nice looking pool, but it was always to cool to use it even in July. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree in general with the last two reviews. With no cable TV, digital TV reception tends to be intermittent, Wi-Fi is inconsistent, and the spacing of individual sites can be somewhat inconsistent. The pool is not in the center of the park, its up at the front, and it's a long walk to get to the pool from the back of the park. I rate this park higher, because we did have a spacious pull-thru, easy in, easy out, don't use the pool, and the park was very clean, quiet, seemingly being well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice CG but some sites are much better than others. We were fortunate to get a spacious, very green grass, level site but others are very crowded with no shade. The sewers can be a bit close to your picnic table in some sites. Staff was friendly and generally helpful. Near a busy commercial road but surprisingly quiet. Pretty long drive to Charleston and surrounding areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park like atmosphere and lots of really nice trees. Roads excellent, sites are grass lawn with underlying gravel. Very nice. Utilities are convenient and spacing is generous. We had a nice pull through with a tree we really appreciated due to the 90 degree heat. The only thing that was a bit frustrating was internet access. The actual Wi-Fi signal was always strong, and sometimes the connection to the internet seemed like fast DSL, but sometimes it crawled, and most of the time it's nonexistent in the evening. Very frustrating and time wasting when your trying to plan the return trip,thus the lower rating. The park was far from full, so a few quests were using all the bandwidth downloading movies or or other large files. I hope management was not uploading the days business files. One park we visited had a solution to this by blocking internet hogs. This park should consider this solution. The rate shown above is with GS discount + tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was very efficient when we were checking in. The park is clean and sites are spacious. Price does not reflect the Good Sam discount. The park is on a busy highway but is quiet. The park is very close to downtown Charleston and other attraction. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have been camping a long time in a lot of different campgrounds, but Oak Plantation has to be one of the nicest, cleanest parks I have ever stayed at. The traffic cop that was mentioned in some other reviews has now been gone for almost 2 years. The bathrooms were spotless and the WiFi signal was the strongest I have ever had in a campground. The only thing that would have made this park a ten is cable TV. I could only pick up two channels with the antenna, I am just warning you of this before you arrive. I will be back, next time with a satellite dish!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park-like setting (even a mansion!), lots of grass with either gravel or cement pads with very large sites. It rained every afternoon but the drainage was good so there was no flooding of sites. The restrooms were toothbrush clean, and the showers had built-in tile benches, lots of towel/clothes hooks and shelves inside the showers for your shampoo, etc! It's very convenient to Charleston but quiet. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grassy sites with gravel pads, mostly level; sites which are exceptionally spacious for a private campground. Some sites have good shade, most have some shade from medium to large trees; best shade is toward the back of the park. The campground is located near a major intersection on the outskirts of Charleston, so there is some road noise, but not bad except in sites near the front or back edges of the park. The sites are in loops designated with single letters (A, B, C, etc) are larger than those in double-letter loops (AA, BB, etc.) The showers are tiled, and clean; some toilets not seated well. We had rainy weather our entire stay, so the grassy areas tended to be a bit muddy, but could have been much worse. 10 mph speed limit in the CG is strictly enforced by the staff and "speed bumps." The Wifi worked well. It is a good place for an overnight or extended stay (there are some long term sites available which are kept very tidy). We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV campground is a very clean campground with level sites. We stayed in a pull through space that was level and had a nice surface of small white gravel. Utililties were well placed at each site and the electricity metered out at 114.9 volts. Picnic tables are at each site and the grassy areas well trimmed. The WIFI signal was iffy with periods of good signal, then no signal for a while. Our satellite picked up the signal perfectly. If you utilize a satellite, let them know as a lot of the sites have large shade trees. The restrooms and showers were clean and trash receptacles handy at the end of each row. Our stay was pleasant, although the park security guy patrolling on the golf cart was paranoid about anyone driving over 10mph. I was told three times to slow it down by this "camper cop" when I wasn't going any faster than the 10 mph posted speed limit in the park. It was the only negative we experienced while we were camped here. We enjoyed the park but probably won't stay here again because of the "speed nazi". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent campground for a destination city. Cable TV would make it a 10. I different from the previous post, that the host is not my tour director. Only contact with the host was the few minutes it took to register. During our stay there was heavy rain with no drainage problems. Will return to this campground when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While the campground itself is well-maintained, the staff leaves much to be desired. While not outright rude, the staff is very unhelpful and borderline hostile. They were never able to offer any information on the area and, it appears, nobody that works there is from Charleston, as they could not give directions to anything other than the visitors center. One must wonder why people that so obviously dislike customers go into a customer service related field. Many of the campers there appeared to be long-term, thus giving the campground the flavor of a trailer park. Campers near our site had a full patio setup with table, chairs, umbrella and a full-sized grill. No activities were offered. Cable was not available - a problem in such a heavily-wooded campground. Overall, the park was too expensive for what you get. I would not stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. The sites are large and everyone has lots of room. Easy to access and quiet. We're about 9 miles from Charleston and the only negative is the busy Highway 17 you have to drive but on the bright side, you have everything you need within an easy driving distance. We would gladly stay here again when visiting Charleston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the cleanest campgrounds we have stayed at with several wooded sites. Paved roads and no dust! Staff is responsive to requests and all facilities are well maintained. Only weakspot is Wifi is somewhat spotty but everything else met our expectations. Reasonably close to all the Charleston historical sites and restaurants. Has a large supermarket (Publix) within two blocks. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 3 / 10 ]
First the woman checking us in was extremely rude when we inquired about getting propane. Second we were sent to a site with no visible hook-ups. We made 3 calls to the office to try to get a different site. They finally picked up the 4th time when I was leaving a message. By that time we pulled into another site that was big enough for us. We were told the site was available but we couldn't stay in it because it had a sewer and we wanted water and electric. (They had plenty of sites open) She could not figure out another site to put us so we were 'allowed' to stay in that site. The site we were in was gravel and fine. We were able to pick up about 4 channels with our antenna. The Plantation home was very picturesque. We had planned on staying 2 nights but because of the rudeness of the front desk staff, only stayed 1 night and will not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night, but we will definitely stay for a week when we decide to visit Charleston. The sites were gravel and spacious. The park was very clean, with a row of garbage pails at the end of each lane. The staff was very friendly. There is no cable, but we asked for a clear site and our satellite worked fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
With over 250 sites, this is one of the cleanest, best-managed, and best-maintained campgrounds we have visited. Even though we describe some negatives, we like this park and consider it a pleasant place to stay. Restrooms and large shower stalls are exceptionally clean, but toilet doors do not have latches (some swing open during occupancy) and showers have too few hooks. There are lots of trees, but they do not interfere with access to sites. Sites farther from park’s entrance have significantly less road noise. Some sections of the park have more space between sites than others. Because of slightly narrow lanes, some, but not all, sites may be tight for big rigs to enter and leave if sites across the street have toads or tow vehicles parked in inconvenient locations. There was free Wi-Fi with strong signal at our site, but no cable TV and, of six local stations, we could receive only NBC, ABC, and CBS. It is unlikely your GPS will recognize the campground’s address. For the town name, enter Johns Island, not Charleston. We found the best option is to enter into the GPS the intersection of Highway 17 and Main Road. If you are driving on northbound Highway 17, stay in the left lane (at this point, the highway is actually running east and west). The campground’s entrance is the first left turn after the stop light at the Highway 17 and Main Road intersection. You must cross two lanes of very heavy southbound traffic, so try to avoid arrival during rush hour (approximately 3:00 to 6:30 p.m.). If you are driving southbound on Highway 17, stay in the right lane. The campground’s entrance is on your right, and you have no other lanes to cross--the Highway 17 and Main Road intersection is a few hundred feet ahead, so if you pass it, you‘ve gone too far. The park’s entrance has a large white sign, but it is somewhat obscured by trees and easy to overlook, so it is possible to drive past the entrance. It may be worthwhile to call the office for directions and landmarks well ahead of arrival, because the phone is not always answered. As of April, 2009, ultra low sulfur diesel (diesel #2) was difficult to find in the vicinity of the campground. The closest location we found is about 5 miles at Sunoco at 1884 Sam Rittenberg Boulevard, Charleston, SC (on your GPS). We recommend this park and would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Due to a rally during the week we wanted, we were put on an uneven grass site which we were told was the last pull-thru available. We didn't like the $215 weekly rate which did not include cable and sometimes "iffy" WiFi, but it is location, location, location. Fairly close to downtown Charleston and all the islands and next to a Publix grocery store and 3 miles from a Walmart. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We like the park and its a great place to see Charleston. There seems to be a problem with trying to reserve a site.I called twice and was told no full hookups available. They would not take reverations for water and electric. When I got here they gave me a full hookup.I think the lady in the office did not want too bother. The camper next to me told me he talked to a man and got revervations.Wifi is now free. Only one dryer was working. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful location, about 4 miles from I-526. Quiet and peaceful park! We had a cement site, was not quite as level as we would have wanted, but good enough. Movies to rent and lots of books at the office. We had trouble with our 5th wheel's back levelers and the owner and his son came to our rescue and fixed our problem, and told us how to take care of it in the future. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice and well run park. We stayed here twice for over two months each time and would come back again. There is a monthly rate. We had a quiet, shady, site away from the highway, and were able to get satellite TV on a tripod. The only thing we didn't care for was the taste of the overly softened water. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in site D3 at the front to get satellite. In the summer it would be hot but it is difficult to get everything. We were able to get all four TV networks on digital broadcast. Very nice dog run. Much larger and nicer than most. Rated this park down because of no free WI-FI (although I accidentally found my way on free) and no cable. Park appears well maintained. Would most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time at this park and I felt it was wonderful for what we wanted. The site was level and free of any obstructions for the slide out and hook ups. We stayed 3 nights and had ample time to see the city again. Nearby was a city park, called Angel Oak. It was by far the largest live oak I've seen and worth the short trip. All in all, this campground was very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is about 10 miles from Charleston. We were in space P3, which is at the front of the park. There are no trees in the front, and we caught full, direct sun through our windshield virtually all day. That was not the owner's fault, and we did ask for a spot where we could get satellite. The park does not have cable. For some reason, we could get Fox very clear on our antenna, but not ABC, NBC, or CBS. If you have a tripod then we recommend you ask for a spot in the back. It is very shady, and very pretty. There is no way could we have survived the heat in the summer. Their address did not show up on our GPS, and we suggest you call ahead, they are on a very busy highway, and we had to turn in front of very heavy traffic. If you love seafood, Gilligans is great. Its about .4 miles from the park. We made ourselves sick on steamed oysters. We would definitely return to this park, but would take our tripod and not use our Winegard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice campground for a visit to Charleston. We were here 4 nights over Thanksgiving and this was about the 4th time for us. They could use more playground equipment. The interior roads are nice but many of the sites are dirt (or mud in the rain) ours had some gravel and was level enough to not use leveling jacks. The staff is friendly and helpful (as long as you don't exceed the 10mph speed limit). There are plenty of groceries and other conveniences nearby. We did hear some road noise but none of the train/ airplane noise mentioned in other reviews. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We diverted here to meet up with two other coaches for the night. Nice campground and we will return. Only negatives were many children riding bikes through campground; and sewer hookup was quite distant from electrical. We just dumped on the way out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an outstanding park. Only negative is no cable TV but the local channels came in great. Park is big and shady, convenient to all the action in downtown Charleston. This is just an awesome park. Rate is with Good Sam discount. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second stay here. Staff was friendly. The site was level, although the pad was barely long enough to fit our 37' unit. One other problem we had was the sewer hookup opening was uphill, although that didn't appear to be a problem at other sites. Although there is no cable, we had excellent reception for the local channels and the WIFI was very good. There aren't many campgrounds in the Charleston area, but I don't think you'll find anything better in the area, especially for the rate. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to Charleston. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an outstanding campground with the cleanest bathrooms we have ever experienced. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful with information about the best local attractions! We will definitely return to spend time at this campground in the future! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Stayed one night while passing through on our way home, and was very impressed. Grounds are very well maintained, spacious lots with what looked like new picnic tables. Wide streets to maneuver, and an abundance of pull through spots. Quiet at night, very friendly and helpful staff, we frequent the Charleston Area quite a bit and will definitely camp here again. My only wish is that the pool was more centered on the grounds, and that they would add more to their playground for the little kids. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is exactly my definition of a quality RV park. Lots of trees, grass, pool, and it was beautiful. Staff was nice and the grounds even better. Also there was not a lot of people that looked like they lived there with junk all around their RV like I see at many parks. In fact I didn't see ANYONE that looked like that. All the RVs were nice and the sites were kept up nice etc. I love this place and Charleston was very nice too for sightseeing, dining etc We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice and well manicured grounds. Staff friendly and pool clean. Bathrooms were spotless. Computer hookup in office with a very slow dialup. tv on antenna and could not get signal from portable dish. Very handy to Charleston. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a spacious campground with trees for shade, and a picnic table at the site. We were parked near the back so it was quite a ways to the office, laundry and pool. The sites were level. We were here over Memorial Day weekend, and although it was busy we did not feel crowded. There is a strict 10 mph enforced. Wi Fi in our site was good but a slow speed. I discovered if I went near the office it was much faster. It is $5 a day or $15 for a week. The laundry was $1.50 for both washers and dryers. The dryers were large and things dried fairly quickly. There is also a laundramat across the street. TV reception wasn't the greatest and limited. We could not get sattelite but we have a dome. We would stay here again. It is close to Charleston and some of the plantations. The staff is very helpful, providing directions to many services and points of interest on a paper when you check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As previous post indicate this is a nice campground. WiFi is provided by Tengointernet and is not free. No Cable TV. Local TV is not clear with Batwing Antenna. We were in Site PP6 and could get DirecTV by setting Sat at end of site near road. There are some sites that you can not get sat signal due to trees. Zip is 29455, 45 220. Some sites are larger and some have grass area. I did not need to level the trailer. They will receive mail at their office. A new Wal-mart is close. They give you the locations of a post office, Lowes, Home Depot and other places. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A well plan out campground that was beautifully plan out with spaces for large motorhomes and fifth wheels to smaller pop-ups. Lots of room to maneuver into your site. Helpful staff that answer all our questions with a smile. We will return in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large campground with some gravel sites, some with cement pad, some with full hook-ups. Many sites with water/electric. Lovely tall oak trees for shade, many nice grass sites. Close to historic downtown, next to new Publix. Easy access to islands, plantations, downtown and all highways. If you need 50 amp/sewer, call ahead to be sure of availability. Relaxing place to stay, sites not too close and access via paved roads is good. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful campground with large oaks and lots of green space. Our site D3 was gravel but very level, with huge grassy area between sites. Our site was open for excellent satellite reception. Owner/manager is on site and shows concern for a great stay. Convenient to all Charleston and surrounding area has to offer. Our rate is based on a 1-week stay with Good Sam discount. Would definitely return and stay at this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large park well kept. Has a fishing pond also. Close to Charleston. Quiet area. Some sites have a cement pad others like ours was stone and some grass. I would stay here again if in area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just returned from this campground and we were less than thrilled with our experience. The campground is nothing exciting. It has no cable and you have to pay a fee for really slow WiFi service. The location to Charleston is pretty good but the road it is off of is busy and there is a lot of road noise in the campground. The people that work at the campground are not very friendly and they are FREAKS about the speed limit. Trust me when I tell you, they have nothing better to do than to chase you down in a golf cart to tell you that you are driving too fast (when you weren't). None the less, we won't be making a return trip to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great CG. The dog run was very large and the campground was dog friendly (they were even allowed in the office.) We didn't find traffic to be as bad as reviews had stated in getting out. The sites were wide and the CG was clean and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very good campground with good level mostly concrete pads.Good shower facilities. Easy access to visit Charleston. WiFi is good but it costs extra. The antenna TV worked very well. We would visit here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this campground for several reasons. This is a great location if you want to visit Charleston, Kiawah Island or any of the many other towns in this area.The sites are level, very wide and it's very clean. We travel with more than one dog so having a nice dog area is necessary. The large fenced in pet area is fabulous. The staff is friendly and we continue to return here when we are passing through the Charleston area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is very clean and the bathhouses were very clean. The CG was not crowded in Dec. so it was very quite. We were in the back of the CG but still could hear some traffic noise at night. It's close to Charleston with easy access to the city. I would recommend this CG and I will go back. They have WiFi for a charge but I picked up a signal that I got for free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped at this park intending to stay three days and stayed nine as we found Charleston so attractive. The park is beautiful largely because of the huge Oaks and careful grooming. While the facilities are modest, those that are available are clean and inviting. Staffing is excellent. We will be heading North to Canada in a few days and will return for several days to complete our visit to the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful, well-maintained park with sites that are very easy to access. There are a few sites on concrete pads but the sites that have gravel pads are quite level. The park does not have cable and, because of the many tall trees, satellite reception is a challenge. When we stayed there the park was not real busy and the manager was very accommodating in finding us a site with a clear view for our satellite. When the park is busy, I suspect that it could be very difficult to find a site where the satellite would work. This park has one of the best dog runs that we have seen. It is very large and is completely covered with grass. Getting in and out of the park is a little difficult due to the heavy traffic but there is an alternate route into Charleston that is longer but takes a lot less time during the rush hours. We loved Charleston and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
(GPS: 32.80218, -80.10542) In summary: The nicest campground restrooms we've seen since ???, but also the noisiest campground we've ever been in. Their brochure says "Landscaped for privacy and shade", but there is NO privacy (there ARE some tall shade trees). The place is one huge parking lot, where you can see from one end to the other. Likewise, noise travels from one end to the other. It's located alongside a major four lane highway, near the intersection with a fairly busy two laner. Trains pass nearby every hour or so at night with their horns blaring. AND, it's in the flight path of some heavy military cargo jets that pass overhead in the wee hours. As if this wasn't enough, on our second morning, a tree trimming crew arrived at 7:45 AM, fired up the chain saw, and proceeded to lop off branches. If you want peace and quiet, this is not the place to find it. Oh, and watch out for the mounds of fire ants (they didn't warn us). We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park is clean, well maintained and patrolled. I was stopped by the park speed monitor, she came running after me while I was speeding at 15 mph. We stayed here two nights while visiting Charleston. Many paved pull through sites available but, I had to back in for satellite coverage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent campground within a very reasonable distance from the city of Charleston. Friendly owners and staff. Sites are a good size with both pull-thrus and back-ins. This is a Good Sam park so there is a discount. Good park for exploring the beauty and history of the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Only criticism may be that some of the sites are a bit narrow, as we were the only ones parked in our row, on this trip that didn't matter. Nice folks in the office. "Store" was sparse but this campground is located in a very convenient spot to shop for whatever you may need. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Concrete pads for your unit at some sites. Lots of garbage cans. Park was exceptionally clean. Nice staff. I would have rated this park higher if they had free WIFI. It is $4.00 a night We camped here in a Motorhome.
We use this wonderful park as a kind of second home and store our fifth wheel here as well. Staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, and the park owners put much effort into maintaining a super clean and efficiently run facility. This is one of the best parks we have experienced for dog owners, with the fenced doggie run area being a real treat, but shame on those guests who use it and don't clean up after their pets. Some reviewers have commented on strict speed campground/rules but we think a good park needs a certain amount of riff-raff control, and rules help in this respect. A great park for enjoying Charleston. Especially nice in winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
About 15 minutes out of Charleston. Sites were nice and wide. We were on a level concrete slab which made setup very easy. The bathrooms were not clean and smelled constantly of mothballs. Of the 4 toilets only 1 was not clogged. The showers were fine. Because the bath house was so bad, I couldn't recommend this camping site to anyone. My wife's gripe was that the brochure pictures are deceiving. Wireless is available for a daily fee. First place I have been to where they charged for wireless. Management was very friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground overall. We were here with members of our RV club, and we all had pull-through sites next to each other. The campground was laid out well, and well maintained. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Sites were well laid out and plenty big enough to accommodate 40' rigs with a tow car. We would gladly recommend this park to other RV'ers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found the park very nice and well placed. This park has a very nice fenced in doggy run where you can let your dog run and play free of leash. The spaces are long, level and wide. The only drawback is the office shuts down at 7PM and the clerk was not friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well maintained and well managed park. All is clean and organized. The only problem is the difficulty to get out of the park and make a LH turn on highway 17 to Charleston.. I think the host should make this clear in their literature and suggest some other routes than to wait for 20 minutes to cross the road. Thank God for GPS...I found an alternate route We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
OK, let me start by saying I thought this was a nice campground. The spaces were a bit narrow, but that wasn't a problem for us this time of year, as the one next to us was empty the entire stay. The roads are very narrow. Internet was expensive. Why aren't they all free? Contrary to the prior review, I found the staff to be very unfriendly. It seemed like it was a painful for them to help me at all (which is funny, since the only help I needed was to pay when we arrived and when I extended our stay, or to pick up our mail.) They were also a bit bitchy about the 10 mph speed limit. Also, the woman who checked us in could only recommend the restaurant down the street that gave a discount if you were staying at the park, though she had never been there. Not the best place as it turned out. In retrospect, this is really odd, as we found a wealth of great restaurants in Charleston, in all price ranges. You should know about the town you work in at an RV resort! Had the staff had a nicer, more helpful attitude, they would have gotten a higher rating from me. A little kindness goes a long way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are close together with narrow access roads which makes a somewhat difficult approach to the sites if the campground is busy. They are level with adequate length. Employees are both helpful and friendly. Wi-fi works great. Some air plane and traffic noise but not bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park. It has pretty much everything you want or need onsite here and even a convenience store or 2 within easy walking distance. This is a very clean and well maintained park. They enforce the 10 mph rule very effectively. The fenced in off leash dog run is absolutely wonderful too, it was bigger than I expected, about 400x50 maybe. The staff was very friendly. I dont think you can go wrong here. The fishing pond was also much bigger than I had anticipated, usually when a campground advertises a fishing pond, its a little dinky thing, but this one was huge. I will definitely be back here when in the area We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great Park. We requested a space with a southern sky access for the satellite dish and that's what we got. This is a large park with many different types of spaces which can accommodate any size/type of RV. If you want trees they are available, if not that is available, too. This is definitely a big rig site. Well maintained and managed and 4.6 miles to COSTCO. Also, a great location for visiting Charleston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park. Friendly staff. Pull through sites are fairly close together and some could use more shade. Very hard to access Highway 17 especially during rush hour. Being the closest park to Charleston was an advantage. Pool ia a long walk from the sites at the rear of the park. I would stay here again if I were visiting Charleston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful, well kept park near Charleston. Speed limit 10 mph strictly enforced. Rest rooms immaculate. Water pressure is low and Wi-Fi is expensive. No cable TV available. Difficult to enter and exit during rush hour. The owners constantly patrol the park for problems. One of the brothers is friendly and the other not so friendly. The staff is friendly. Sites are large and mostly pull through. Not overly satellite friendly because of the trees, but can find the birds with a little effort. Will definitely return in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful campground. It was very clean, and I agree that the pledge signed by pet owners must make a difference, as well as the presence of a specified dog run. The sites, particularly those in the rear of the campground, were spacious and level, many having cement pads. The staff was very friendly and most helpful. The bathhouses were cleaned often and kept in excellent condition. The pool, a bit small for the size of the campground, is way in the front by the highway - a bit away for many. Only real complaint was that the Wi-Fi that is available is a bit costly and was not operating the weekend we were there. Not the campground's fault, but it did prove to be a real inconvenience for us as my husband had brought work with him that required the use of the internet. We had to cut our visit a day short as a result. There is a very nice designated tenting area with large shade trees, and enough shade in the rest of the campground so if you wanted a shaded site it would probably be available. The traffic on Rt. 17 can be terrible here so do all you can to avoid arriving anywhere near rush hour!! Saw someone else recommend Gilligans as a good local spot to eat. Went there and was very unimpressed. The place wasn't very clean (maybe because it was packed) and the service was awful! Food wasn't all that good either! The campground was terrific however and we already made reservations to return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very pleasant surprise after a long drive from Florida. Beautiful park like setting with big trees (but not too many), nicely mowed grass, and paved interior roads. Some sites near the back have concrete pads but the grassy/gravel pull-through sites in the middle were much better. The sites near the back, i.e. "AA" were too close together. Go for the "G" or "H" lettered sites if making advanced reservations. Very pet friendly with a fenced dog run area. One interesting note is that you must sign an agreement regarding your pet and picking up after them. I didn't mind a bit, and noticed NO dog waste around the grounds. Charleston was great and try to go for the Tommy Dew walking tour of downtown: we loved it! A really nice seafood restaurant just around the corner on Main Rd. called Gilligans. Magnolia Plantation was interesting and the gardens were beautiful. Be Warned!!! turning across hwy. 17 coming from the Southwest is tricky with all of the weekend traffic. This is a very well operated RV park and nicely located to Charleston while maintaining a country setting. With cable TV this one would have been a "10" although you do get the local channels very nicely. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground! Manicured landscape with lots of shade and asphalt. The lot we stayed on was a nice level concrete slab. Pool was very clean as were the bathrooms and showers. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful old oak trees with moss hanging from them. Only 9 miles from downtown Charleston. Only thing keeping it from a 10 would be the addition of cable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a very clean well maintained park. We arrived late to find that our site was marked on the cg map and waiting for us. Many of the sites are very large pull throughs as was ours. The large site included 50amp service, water and sewer. The grass was well mowed on all sites, dog run, play ground etc. Some of the sites are back in sites, but many of those are paved with concrete pads or gravel. Large trees are throughout most of the campground so satellite may not work. The pool is small and at the front of the cg and a pretty good hike from most of the RV sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I did check out the bath houses and both were very clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with all positive comments previously posted and would add that if anything, the bath houses are over-cleaned: on both mornings as we emerged from the showers we were met with cleaning ladies. Most parks don’t clean at 8:30 when the showers are being used. We were parked in the rear on grass sites with side by side hookups. The staff ensured there was an empty site on each side of us, so it was roomy enough, but it they ever fill up, you’ll sure get to know your neighbour! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for 4 nights, the camp was clean and well maintained the staff was really great, and the dog run was wonderful for our little friend to be allowed to run loose for a little while. Very close to Charleston attractions. However, we did not like the closeness of the sites the neighbor's power/water/sewer hook up was under my awning once I put it out. Since the neighbor was my Sister it wasn't a problem but if it were a stranger being that close I would not have stayed there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice, quiet campground and well maintained. The site we got was huge! Management was very friendly and efficient. They had rules regarding pets and speed limit, but were not oppressive. There was a nice fenced-in dog run. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this website to make our decision to stay here and was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and all the equipment was in good working order. Well manicured lawns. We had one of many concrete sites. One side of the park has smaller sites than the other side but we got over it. We will return and bring the rest of the crew with us. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 2 weeks so they put us in the back. The back is 30 AMPs which was ok, however these sites are very small and cramped. I would think the office would consider this with a camper who is staying more than a few nights, as this cramped feeling is uncomfortable. There are other 50 AMP sites which are much larger, and you would appreciate the managment asking you if you would rather have a larger site since you are staying longer. I wasn't asked if I had a preference of a large or small site, only did I need 30 amps. I said 30 without knowing what that meant. Once back here we opted to stay as we were told we couldn't have a refund when we checked in. However, I think to be fair the management should let you know the sites in the back are small, and give you the opportunity to change. It was also very noisy due to traffic and road construction all hours of the night on the road behind the campground. I realize they can't control road noise though, and this is not a normal thing for the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A quality RV park with wide streets and level sites. The park is maintained in an immaculate fashion, and people who work there are very professional. A definitely good place to stay in the Charleston area now that they have removed the "speed bumps" previously mentioned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just thought I would post a positive report about this campground. We stayed there 2-9 July this year. It was our first time at this campground and the overall experience was favorable. The pool was clean, the bathhouses were very clean. A small laundry is located on the property and another one is directly across the street. The staff was pleasant and except for one episode of teenagers crashing the place to search for hallucinogenic mushrooms in the cow pasture behind the property we loved it. Another benefit is the camper dealership next door to the campground. If you need anything major fixed they are very close. They are pet friendly and even have a fenced-in dog run where you can let you dogs run free. The only real drawback we had was the traffic on US 17 at the entrance of the campground. It was very difficult getting in and out of the place especially if you needed to turn left onto US 17. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The only thing that could have made this a better stay would have been to have air conditioning in the bath house. They made sure there was an empty site between each camper as they arrived. About 20 minutes after we arrived and started setting up another coule arrived to the site next to us and before they could start setting up the lady from the desk came and asked if they would like/mind to move over one site so there would be space between us. As we were leaving they came out to our TV and PU to see if we were checking out and if we needed anything. I didn't even have to get out of my TV. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice campground. Easy access to major roads. Entrance is RV friendly. All interior roads paved. Many sites have small concrete pads, the rest are gravel or grass. Site are large by most standards. Park is in great condition, with clean bathrooms. Fishing pond on site with no fee/no liscense required. RV friendly gas station close by, as is a large mall and Wal-Mart. Downtown Charleston is about 9 miles. Only negatives: slight train/airplane noise and no cable TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lot of nice work done to this park over the past years. All roads are now new blacktop, speed humps are now lower, lot of sites have been reworked and 50 amps. added in. WiFi is $4.00 per 24 hours and very good sig. in park. Most sites are level, no dust, low noise from Hwy. near by. Kids have equipment to play on. Good size fishing pool open to all RV people. Nice place to visit Charleston from. Trees are great! Some noise from train at times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an easy campground for sightseeing in Charleston, or visiting family, which was our reason for the visit. Other than that it was kind of ho hum. Not very attractive, but served the purpose for us. We had planned on staying at James Island County Park, but could not get a reservation. Glad we did not as the traffic for the Christmas Lights was pretty tough. I would imagine that it would be great at other times. The other thing about Oak Plantation, is that in the mornings there are a lot of military planes flying overhead. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground, although nothing spectacular, was fairly pleasant and very nearby Charleston. Staff are friendly enough, but not overly helpful with questions about nearby restaurants, etc. The speedbumps that are mentioned are a little excessive. Interior roads are paved and our site was thickly laid gravel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Campground near Charleston SC. Pool was clean and refreshing, but location was in
the front of the campground. Long walk from the sites in the back. The grounds were immaculate almost all of the sites had shade. The sites range from too close together to nicely spaced. Our slide was about 6 feet from the awning behind us. But some of the 50amp sites had a ton of room. The sites with the concrete pads and 30amp seem to be narrower than the gravel 50amp sites. Only negative is that you cannot reserve by site #. Management is very nice and easy to work with. No firepits are provided, however campfires are allowed. Some road noise, but not annoying. If in the area again we would consider this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground but be prepared to have your trailer/motorhome and/or tow vehicle
wheels realigned after you go over these ridiculous speed bumps. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground with both gravel and paved sites. The gravel sites have plenty of gravel and all sites are fairly level. Plenty of space, and no crowding. Would rate this a 10 except for the speed bumps. The speed bumps here (and there are plenty) are so big they have names--Mt. Charleston, Mt. John's, Mt. South Carolina, and so forth. They need to drop these bumps by about 8 inches or so. Other than this problem, it is a great campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A large campground. The spaces are pretty far apart (reasonable at least). Ours had a level concrete pad (pull-thru). Very far back from the highway, so you don't get a lot of noise. Convenient location to Charleston. There are some large speed bumps coming into the campground, so go slow--they're bigger than they look. If we return to Charleston, we'll definitely stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very nice place, no dumb rules, very nice grounds, large number of sites have 30/50 amp power, and pads to park on. Good place to see Charleston from. Sites off the road (Hwy 17) low road noise. Two speed humps as you drive in? Hard on large motorhomes. We plan to stay again. We camped here in a camper.

Easy in/out. Large level gravel sites with concrete pad. Right on a main road into Charleston. All pull thru sites. They do not have a shuttle as advertised. We camped here in a camper.
