Visited in my RV on a business trip to Charleston with my wife and 2 dogs. Since this was a county park, I did not know what to expect but it was convenient to everything in Charleston. Well it blew us away, the park is beautiful and the people are friendly and very helpful. Sites are large, with full hook... More

Fantastic campground! Peaceful, yet so much to do! Splash zone waterpark was a bonus we didn't expect to go to, but ended up changing our plans and spent the whole day there. Kids loved it! Charleston is a quick easy drive about 5-10 mins away. Park at the visitor center, take the DASH trolley around town (free!) Camp sites are... More

A beach for dogs? Yes!! A waterpark just across the street for humans? Yes!! A $5 hot breakfast on Sunday? Oh yeah!! The nicest park staff on the planet? You got it!! And to top it off, a shuttle to escort you into Charleston and Folly Beach!!! The campsites are spacious and fairly heavily wooded with full hookups. There are... More

We went here to drain our dogs' energy while on vacation. Loved the dog park, just wish people would watch their dogs more. Kept ours on the leash because these two larger dogs kept harassing other dogs. No fights broke out or anything, just made me nervous. Great space and great dog beach, great time overall, just inattentive owners.

James Island county park and campground is one of the best hidden jems around. The more you explore on the one of the three one mile bike trail the more you find. Water parks, picnic areas, camping or just big open fields to watch the world go by, it is all wonderful! the campground is very open and spacious. The... More

This is the best family campground! So much to do there in the park. Bike trails are wonderful and great for children, everyone watches out for bicycles. This is our second year staying at the campground and really enjoyed it!

Camped at James Island campground in middle of April 2013 for one week. This is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed at. The sites were extremely large. I could have parked 4 of my campers on my site. I have a 38 foot camper with 3 slideouts and a large dually truck. Plenty of room left over... More

Our family loves camping, but St. James took it to a new level, with so much to do within the park. Crabbing dock, Kyaks, paddle boats, bike trails, rock wall and our dogs loved the dog park. Wonderful staff, we met Ranger Jay who was wonderful and so educated about Charleston Area and history. We are planning on returning this... More

We stayed here 2 nights in April while visiting the Charleston area. We were very impressed by the size of the RV sites, the cleanliness, and the scenic beauty of the park! It was so quiet and serene that we felt like we were miles from the city, but it was just a short drive into Charleston and to other... More
