This place was awesome. Close to Charleston and Folly Beach. Ample space between units, clean bathrooms, excellent amenities including a huge dog park with its own beach. We had a great time and plan to come again! There's a water park near by, boat rentals or you can just chill out. Highly recommend!

This is a campground for RVs. They don't quite make that as clear as most RV parks do, so I was surprised by the treatment tent campers get. Its a big open field with some fire rings and a few picnic tables. The bathrooms consist of a portable unit with one mens and one womens. There was a single source... More

My husband found out about James Island County Park on BringFido.com, and I'm so glad he did! This is the best dog park we've taken our dog to- flat, open, lots of grass and benches, water / lake and a beach. We all loved it and it tired our dog out for the ride home. It was only $2 per... More

Nice place to camp. All the sites are level and have fairly easy access, although some have more shade than others. The bath houses are clean and in good condition. There are a lot of things to do here, from fishing, crabbing, riding bikes, water parks, playgrounds, etc. One bad thing is that you can't do anything after 8. No... More

Really nice RV park - well done Charleston County! People were actually out walking and cycling - hardly a golf cart in sight! How refreshing. Nice sites, lots of trees. Trails for walking and cycling. Free shuttle to Charleston in the morning and back in the afternoon was the icing on the cake.

We stayed three nights at the end of our trip visiting Savannah, Beaufort, and Charleston. All the places we camped were good but James Island County Park was the best. This is not just a campground as there are other activities and the park is well used by the locals for hiking, bicycling, playing with their dogs in and around... More

Clean, quite, economic and awesome! Staff are amazingly polite and helpful. Close to downtown Charleston and other historical sites. We plan on making this a frequent camping spot! Bring your bicycles!

This park is a gem! My husband and I just spent 3 nights camping at the James Island County Park. Roads to reach the park are a bit narrow for big rigs, with overhanging tree limbs. The turn from Central Park Rd to Riverland is a bit sporting with a large tree ltrunk, so just be aware. It's worth the... More

We enjoy staying at James Island County Park when we visit the Charleston area. It's the closest RV Park time wise to Downtown Charleston. It's got nice level sites and the park is Dog and Child Friendly. Great walking/Biking Trails wind all the way around the entire park. It's Handicap Accessible. They also have cabins that are great for folks... More

Customer service and site was excellent. My only complaint is that the make pest control to help with the massive amount of bugs in and around the playground area that are all over you and bite you extensively. Everyone, children and adults alike, all complained of this. Deet didn't do too much to ward them off either. There needs to... More
