“Very nice USDA campground on the Intercoastal Waterway. ”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Earl and I camped arrived here on Friday, September 7. The day after was opening day for recreational shrimping. This campground has a very busy boat ramp and many of the campers had and launched boats as well. It was quite a sight when boats started arriving and launching at 5:30 in the morning. We checked in with the host on our ... more

“Awesome location on the Intercoastal Waterway!”

Reviewed Sep 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We had a great week at Buck Hall! The campground isn't very large so I definitely recommend making a reservation. During shrimp baiting season (60 days starting the Friday nearest September 15) the campground is completely booked. Plan accordingly! There is really nice boat landing and fishing/crabbing pier in the campground. We h... more

Camped here the end of July. Very pretty area. Mosquitos can be a pain so bring some deet. The hosts are very kind and the campsite is patrolled by local PD. Really enjoyed my stay here.

“Nice little campground right on the Intracoastal Waterway”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Buck Hall Recreation Area is conveniently located right off route 17. The $20 includes a $10 senior discount plus a $10 reservation fee! The reservation fee seems awfully high but I assume it is the same whether you reserve one night or several nights. We only stayed one night so it is steep. There are some overhanging trees but fairly... more

“Great overflow camp!”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

The main camp was full when we pulled in, so were directed to the overflow camp which was shady, pretty, secluded and with several spots to camp. Some sites had fire rings. The cost was $5 but we paid only $2.50 with our senior pass. We also had access to the main camp dump station and bathroom (which were not awesome).

“Quiet spot along the South Carolina Coast”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2018

Overall Rating

While the restrooms and campground could be a bit cleaner and well maintained this is really a great spot. I came in for one night (without a reservation) and stayed for six. It’s only 30 miles from Charleston and right on the Palmetto Trail and Intracoastal Waterway so there’s plenty to do OR juat a great place to relax.

“Small campground with LARGE sites”

Reviewed Dec 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This is our 2nd time here at Buck Hall. This is a small quiet site located on the Intracoastal Waterway 25 miles north of Charleston. The bathhouse is a little "tired" but serves its purpose. There are lots a placed to explore in the area.Beautiful sunrises over the Intracoastal.
