We spent the night at Point South KOA in a motorhome with slide-outs. Point South is one of our favorite KOAs and we stay there regularly when we are traveling on I-95. Definitely recommended!
The pros are: (1) The Swimming Mermaid Coffee House. You can get delicious coffee, wine, pizza, wings and ice cream! They will also deliver pizza to your site. There is wine tasting every night at 6:30 PM. The wines are local to the Carolinas and Georgia, and there is a very nice selection with something for every taste. (2) Very convenient location with easy access to I-95, and it's about half-way between Charleston and Savannah. (3) Although there are no concrete pads, sites are reasonably level and nicely-shaded. (4) Free cable. (4) Free wi-fi. (5) Pool and hot tub; (6) The staff is always friendly, helpful and welcoming.
We also spent a night there last month and we had our 7 year old grandson with us. While we tasted wine, he ate pizza and got to color a Point South KOA backpack with fabric markers. We all had a great time!
We don't travel with pets, but Point South is very dog-friendly with a new K-9 Kamp area for dogs to run around.
The cons are--and these wouldn't be negatives for everyone: (1) Our Verizon phones had a very weak signal--enough to text, but not enough to make phone calls. (2) We couldn't get a satellite signal because of the the trees, but since there is cable, it wasn't really a problem.
