This is a great place to go camping with your family or friends. There are great walking/bike paths, an awesome dog park, a rock climbing wall, and also live Reggae music in the summer time!

One of my favorite things about being a grandpa is being able to connect with my grandkids and help them grow in the natural world. I brought them to the James Island county park recently and we all had a great time together.
