JICP is a huge park! The RV and Campground are nice and shaded, our spot (97) was on a corner and quite large. The park itself is extensive, with plenty to do including a rock wall, long walking trails, and a Splash Park (costs extra to get in) in the summer. Our favorite part was the dog park. We travel...

This is a state/county campground one right. It has everything you could want. Ok I'd prefer paved sites, but the sand is nice, flat, and even the dog didn't get covered in it. Also it feels more like you are out in nature this way. We had a great site, quiet for the most part. They sprayed for the mosquitoes,... More

We just spent a day at the James Island Park but had such a good time i wanted to share. Sounds like an excellent place to camp but there is so much else to do, I'd recommend it as a part-day trip out of Charleston or Folly Beach. We were staying on Folly and noticed the park on the map... More

This is a very nice park. The spaces were easy to back in and the staff is friendly. It is pretty easy to get to downtown Charleston and there is a shuttle to both downtown and Folly beach if you don't want to drive. It offers a lot of activities for families. Would definitely stay there again if I go... More

A very lovely campground for a week or more. Great well laid out park. Tons of stuff to do for adults and kids Fishing lake, crabbing pier, miles of bike trails, rental bikes ($10 first 24 hrs, $5 each additional day, climbing wall, water park. Just 15 minutes to Downtown Charleston or Folly Beach. Restaurants within 2 miles. Campsites are... More

This is a phenomenal county campground with excellent services and outdoor facilities. Great biking/walking paths wind around and through the park. Wireless was typical and just adequate. (We didn't use the bathroom/shower facilities). Very friendly, helpful staff. Close enough to Charleston but avoid the 'morning/afternoon commute' times. All in all a great park!

This is a nice park with all the activities available, location to town and beach and hiking paths. The one thing that ruins the overall rating of the park is the bathrooms and showers. They are not the worst we have seen but are close. Our site 114 was not level and we were unable to get our RV level.... More

The campground is clean, neat and quiet . The sites are private with plenty of room.Staff is helpful and friendly. The park overall is very large, well planned and very well maintained. Our favorite part is the incredible dog park! It is huge, lots of room to run, and the dogs have access to a large swimming area!

The campground is nice. Campsites are large. All throughout the park the trails are paved. Nice dock to fish from. Also water park across street is cool. Kinda geared towards younger kids. Also in campground they have big playground w splash park. That is free. Close to downtown Charleston. We had a great time.

My husband and I stayed at the Campground at James Island County Park in June for a couple of nights. The sites are large and kept spotless. They have a large area for the dogs to run and enjoy the lake which made us wish we had our pups. We have a self contained motor home so we didn't use... More
