Great campground for big rigs as well. Large shaded lots with full hookups. Wonderful bike/ walking path and great water park /pool. Very close to Charleston/Patriots Point. Just note that if you need 14 ft clearance, the short ride before the park entrance can be a little hairy. A little more by the county would be nice!

Our Boy Scout Troop recently stayed here as we visited the Charleston area. Since it is less than 15 minutes from Charleston, it provided the perfect camping location for us. This is a large campground with a variety of sites for RVs as well as a group camping area field with it's own bathroom, which was really nice. The shower... More

We were pleasantly surprised and very impressed with this RV Park/campground/water park. There were so many things to do for all ages. You can rent bikes, visit the splash pad, water park and numerous playground areas. We were specifically impressed with the dog park area -- it was like dog heaven! Plenty of space, a Pond to swim in, water... More

I was very impressed with this park! It was nicely landscaped, large enough playground for numerous kids to enjoy! The water park was a plus. Pavilion & annex was in good condition. Walking trail, pond and bicycle rentals available. I liked how the grills were spaced out so that each family could enjoy themselves. Enough room for kids to play... More

Stayed at primitive campground. Camping area is nice, close to restrooms. Bathrooms are in the main camping area and not far away. Bathrooms were clean.There are lot of activities in the James island county park. Bring your bikes if you have. There are nice bike routes inside the park. 10 minutes far away from Charleston downtown. We will stay if... More

Love this place! Great little trails. Easy hikes, pretty scenery through the marshes, and fun areas for kids. Dog Park there is also AWESOME. Huge and sits on the creek so they can swim. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We chose this campground due to its proximity to Historic Charlestown. The biggest advantage during our stay was the Shuttle service offered through the campground. The shuttle leaves the campground at 830am and return service is offered at 4pm. Though the time was early for our teenage daughter, the morning offered cooler temperatures to walk the historic streets. While waiting... More

Not the worst of places, for sure, yet at almost $50 for a night, for me in a tent, this didn't seem worthwhile. That said, the fact that it's so close to Charleston makes it well worth it if you don't want to stay in nearby motel/hotel. Grounds were clean and well kept.

Whoa! We were staying in James Island with our new-ish dog and this was easily one of the highlights of our long weekend. We ended up coming four days in a row, we loved it so much. It's huge! It features three beach areas, and all of the owners we met were incredibly nice and laid back. The dogs were... More

We tent camped in the "primitive camping" area with no electricity. It was awesome because it was more like actual camping, was very private, and had cool sites and setup. It also had an AC trailer with running water and bathrooms which came in handy and lets be honest, its car camping anyhow. The park is super nice, well maintained... More
