During our brief stay in the Charleston area my girlfriend and I went to two beaches - Folly Beach and Isle of Palms County Park. This one was definitely our favorite. The sand was much finer, it was altogether less crowded, easier to find parking, and all around a much better beach going experience. I will say some of the... More

This beach warrants five stars, but it is often so overcrowded that four will have to suffice. In summer and on holidays arrive early to get a parking place and leave early to avoid the traffic gridlock beginning around 3:30 or 4:00 p.m. The beach itself is very nice with showers, dressing rooms, and bathrooms nearby.

We drove over from our hotel in Charleston, about a half hour drive. We arrived as the gates to the park were being opened, paid $7 and drove into the lot and parked. Simply stated, it was a short walk to the beach. There were restrooms, picnic tables and showers between the lot and beach. It seemed that on this... More

Nice, wide beach in a safe area. Facilities include restrooms (small), showers, changing huts, and a vendor selling beach supplies and chair/umbrella rentals. Small fee for on-site parking.

Playground, clean washrooms/dressing rooms, access to ice cream! For a mom who is taking young kids to the beach, that's all I ask!!!

We were visiting Charleston for a reunion. Usually this weekend of the year we would be at the Jersey Shore. Needing a fix of beach and ocean, we found the Isle of Palms County Park. Great location, good price, great facility, very helpful staff. I only know of one new Jersey Beach park that comes close to this and that's... More

Great proximity to Isle of Palms beach side attractions. A stay here will put you in the middle of fun in the sand, sea and sun!!

We found this cute park after being a little further down the beach but wish we had found it first. It has showers, foot washes, restrooms and a playground. It was verrrry busy but it was also a holiday weekend. You also have to pay for parking pretty much everywhere unless you get lucky. It was nice though
