I must preface my review by stating that we went to James Island County Park for the dog park. We didn't make use of the campground, cottages, bike trails, etc. The dog park was fantastic. It had two separate areas. The main area for all dogs, and a second, separately fenced area for small dogs only. The small dog area... More

My wife and I arrived last night just before closing. The staff greeted us with a smile and got us checked in and give us great directions to our camp site. There is plenty to do here for families and couples without kids along. Plenty of room for cycling, running or walking. There are a lot of historic sites, agricultural... More

Came for the dog park, will be back for more fun without the dog. Found this great dog park with a lake. Off leash dogs seem to behave better. Every dog here was well behaved. The park was clean and had fresh water faucets and poop-bags. Safe entry & exit corrals. While exiting we saw all the other features of... More

We loved this beautiful campground! The sites were very spacious, most had trees and shade. I liked the naturalness of the campground. The sites were dirt and uneven but you can level out your camper so it wasn't a problem. It was very well maintained and had lots of amenities like a dog park, a lake for free fishing in... More

We visited Charleston on April 13-17, 2015 and decided to stay at the James Island Campground after reading reviews online and seeing the proximity of the campground to Charleston as compared to the Oak Mountain and Mount Pleasant Campgrounds which were located a little further out. While the Park seems to be really nice, we were very disappointed in the... More

The cottages at James Island County Park are simple but adequate, and very clean. I was concerned about sharing the space with "critters" but that was not an issue. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare several meals, linger over morning coffee, and have a spot for lovely conversation after touring Charleston during the day. Because the cottages face... More

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
