I had never heard of this campground before but my cousin suggested it for our 109th family reunion. I am so glad she did. This place is amazing. Beautiful park, well maintained, walking trails, splash zones, fun family events every night. The best thing was the dog park. I was astounded at the size of the place. My dog loved... More

We visit Charleston several times a year. We have found a gem in James Island County Park. It is 10 minutes drive to the battery and has easy access for RVs. The park officials couldn't be more helpful. There are walking trails, a water park for the kids, a Mack Daddy climbing wall and the Best Dog Park Ever! It... More

I spent 3 nights camping in the primitive campground. It is a bit of a walk to get to the showers, but not terrible. I did not find the water at the primitive site (maybe the water was supposed to be the bathroom sink water?). So, I used water over in the RV sites to wash up dishes and fill... More

We enjoyed an evening of camping. Nice sites, nice activities and services! The downside is that at some sites the sewer dump hole for the neighboring site is much too close to your dining/campfire/picnic table area. We were at site 120 and the dump hole was five feet from our fire pit and reeked!!!

Sunday morning pancake breakfast...enjoyed this surprise. The temperatures are near 100 degrees, thank goodness for the water park. Miles of paved bike paths with plenty of shade. We had our dog and really took advantage of the huge off leash dog park, a short walk from our campsite. This is our fourth visit to James Island County Park, and loved... More

Wear bug spray during the summer. Visit during the holiday season and see a beautiful drive-through lights set-up.

I'm going to echo what has already been said on here. AWESOME! We've been to some nice parks and RV campgrounds around the Carolinas, but this one takes the cake! The mossy trees, trails, lake, playground, water park, splash zone and more. It's pristine and I've pretty much told my husband I want this to be a Mother's Day tradition... More

I lived about ten minutes from here for 3 years and frequented the park all the time. A good place for families with kids or nature lovers. Easy paved trails that wind through the marsh. The best part about this place is the dog park. It's enormous! A lovely little beach that sits along the waterway with plenty of room... More

My husband and I went to the park to visit the dog park, we heard it was the best. Unfortunately is was closed that day for a special function. We were able to hike the green and blue trails with our two dogs. The park grounds are lovely, trails are very friendly, plenty of things to do.

The park borders on wetlands and serves many different interests. It is a mixture of landscapes. some areas are left natural and some are mowed. There are paved trails, fishing docks, playgrounds, a leash -free area for the dogs, cottages available for rent, a campground with facilities and a primitive one. They even have even a conference facility. We went... More
