Want to visit the Charleston area? If you are a camper, this is the place for you! You are about 6 miles from the center of Charleston, with your own private bridge into downtown! No kidding! Empties right onto Calhoun St. and all that the center city has to offer. The Campground is well run, BEAUTIFUL, quiet, friendly, full of... More

We made a one day stop here and wish we could have stayed longer. This is a clean, well-kept campground. We had a very large nice site which was level and easy to access. I did notice several campsites which were very close together and may have been intended for campers traveling together. If not, these were way too close.... More

We booked four nights here as it was close to downtown Charleston. We were so surprised how beautiful the park and camp ground were. Everything was so clean and the employees were great. The spaces were 100 foot long. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel and could park our truck at either end of the trailer. Ten minutes from... More

This is a wonderful campground. This was our first visit of many! The campground is inside an amazing county park that is close proximity to anything you would want to do in Charleston. 15 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes from the great Avondale area, 5 minutes from shopping, grocery, Walmart, and nightlife on James Island and Folly Beach. The RV... More

The park is so relaxing and beautiful! We rode bikes there for hours! Dog park, ponds, camping, volleyball... I don't even mind paying the dollar to get in because it is always such a wonderful experience!

We have stayed here twice and plan to return many more times. The park is the best we have ever been to so far. There is something to do for everyone. The pool is amazing, rock climbing wall, 3 trails to bike or walk, area for dogs to swim, and area to fish. Downtown Charleston is 15 minutes away with... More

We will definitely return to this campground. It is beautiful and well maintained. We were there the day after Christmas and really enjoyed their holiday light show--it's worth it to stay in the campground just to see the lights! The bike paths are wonderful and I can imagine it would be really fun to stay when the pool is open--looked... More

This is by far, my families all time favorite place to camp. The campground is always very clean and well-kept. There is a host of things to do such as the playground for the children, miles of bike/walking trails, fishing dock, dog park, kayak/paddle boat rentals, water park in the summer, festival of lights and train ride in December. It's... More

We have stayed in a number of campgrounds this holiday season. This was our worst experience. Here is our litany of grievances, some of which we hope the campground can remedy. The bathroom for the tent camping had only one stall, no running water , and would not flush. Seemed like the water was turned off. Two other stalls were... More

Have you been to Oglebay in WV at Christmas? This is similar, but warmer and more to see while out of the car! Shops, climbing wall, marshmallow pit, lights near walkway. Many light displays are personalized to the area. Music! So fun! Near Charleston,SC. Just remember letter of lot where you park!
