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

The dog park was the highlight of our recent trip to the Charleston area. We have a lab mix that thinks she's a Greyhound, so she thoroughly enjoyed the wide open field to run as fast as she could. She also enjoyed wading into the small lake that borders the dog park on one side. After we wore the dog... More

Love this park! The staff was great, helpful and kind. The camping sites were super clean and well kept. The best part of our stay were the amenities this park offers... The hikes are lovely, you can canoe/kayak/race boats or fish on the lake, there is a cute water park and pool on the property and everything is impeccably clean.... More

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
