We decided to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to Charleston to visit friends who had recently moved to the the area. This RV park is only 15 minutes from their house in West Ashley and right off of Savannah Highway which is a perfect location and easy to find. The park is well-kept with level sites and decent full hookups. We stayed in site P2; easy pull-through site with a fairly level concrete pad for the rig. This is our second trip in our upgrade--a 36' fifth wheel--and it was a quick setup. In this section of the park, there are well-spaced trees, so we didn't have to worry about leaves or needles collecting on top of the slideouts. We were out exploring the city, so we didn't spend much time at the park or check out the facilities. Also, we wanted to stay in Charleston a little longer on Sunday, so we paid a little extra for a late check-out which was great for us. I recommend this park, especially if you plan to explore Charleston, SC and are looking for need a close hub.

This campground has a lot of pros and cons. It is very clean. The sites are nice. There are campsites in the shade without sewer hookup. It would be nice to have full hookups due to shade. The full hooks don’t offer many lots with shade. Bathhouses are very clean. There is a pool. It is up at the front of the campground by a very busy road. Not a good location for a pool to relax by. This campground is best for parking your camper. Then go to the tourists things Charleston has to offer. I wouldn’t want to hangout in this campground. It is very quiet at night. The best tip is to get reservations as soon as possible. They are not good at putting campers beside the people in the same group. We spoke with others that had this same problem.

We stayed 4 nights in July. The location is decent to tour Charleston and visit the beaches. There are other campsites closer to tourism but they were booked so we landed at Oak Plantation. The pictures posted of the campground are accurate so I am only posting pictures of the bath house and laundry. The campsites are tidy, level and not too small. Most sites have little or no shade. There is a mix of concrete pads and grass sites. The campground was quiet despite the proximity to busy roads. The laundry facility is $1.50 a wash load and 25 cents/ six minutes of the drier which is fair. The laundry facility was pretty dirty. The machines had a lot of dirt and grime in the change trays and the floors and walls had dirt, spider webs etc. The bath house was likely built in the 1960’s. There was barely enough room in front of me to close the door to a toilet stall and I am of average/small build. The toilets and shower stalls were generally clean. The edges of the floors along the walls etc looked like they had not been cleaned in months. The shower stalls were adequate size with a separate space to change clothes. The staff was not particularly friendly. They seem to be on the stricter side with rules. We asked for a shady site and did have a tree on one side but the door side of our unit was in straight sun. We arrived in the late afternoon so We didn’t realize the issue with the sun until we had set up so we didn’t ask to move. We did park our truck overnight at the empty site next to ours because they were open spots. They sought me out while doing laundry and said absolutely no parking at an open site. I told her we were only trying to keep the truck out of morning sun until leaving each day to tour. She said I know. You still can’t park there. Given the three spots next to us were unoccupied the entire time, I thought that was a bit harsh. We only have one pick up truck and a travel-trailer, so it wasn’t an issue of extra equipment. I would stay again but I would look for openings at other campsites first.

As others have mentioned, coming from the south on the US 17 you need to cross busy US 17 heading north. Patience grasshopper. Lots of speed humps – lots. I get the need to squash the speed demons but this is overkill. Interior roads are paved but the ones leading to the sites are narrow. Like narrow enough that if two vehicles meet one has to four wheel it in the grass. The sites are mostly grass with some gravel. Our pull thru was mostly gravel which was great as they had a ton of rain. The site was long and mostly level. There is fairly decent spacing between sites but no privacy. It is a pretty park with lots of trees and green grass. Directv worked in our site but may not in others. They have cable available, and we were also able to get OTA on our antenna. Great Verizon service at 4g 4 bars which was valuable as the WII FI was too slow to use. Even though our site was further back in the park, there was lots of road noise from US 17 and Main Road. Just as a side note, the water is very soft so you’ll save on soap. About 12 miles from downtown Charleston but takes 25-30 minutes with traffic. Pretty pricey in our opinion for what you get.
