Camping @ James Island in pop-up in Dec?

Anyone have any words of wisdom about the weather at the first of December? We're thinking of camping 4 nights in our pop-up (which has heat), but wondered about winds and colder temperatures. We've heard that the Christmas season at James Island is wonderful, but wanted to hear from any of you who might have camped there in Dec. Thanks.

Are you talking about James Island County park? It's nice, but has lots of traffic on the side of the Festival of Lights, FYI.

No telling about the weather. It could be warm or chilly. The wind is less of a problem off the beach.

Thanks. Yes, that's what I was talking about. Lots of traffic would be an issue if we're camping.

The heavy traffic accessing the park will occur in the late afternoon (at dusk) and in the evening until 9 pm, as these are the times when people come to visit the Festival of Lights. On occasion, inbound traffic along Riverland Parkway can be tied up for several miles. You'll need to take this into consideration when returning to the campground late in the day.
