“Convenient value state park to Charleston SC”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed 8/11/2017 to 8/13/2017. This is the best value park if you want to visit Charleston. Yes it could take an hour or less to get down to the city, but the choice maybe will save you bucks. Its never easy to visit a vacation destination city. All closer campgrounds will be at least double the cost.

“Nice State Park for exploring Charleston.”

Reviewed Oct 03, 2016

Overall Rating

Givhans Ferry is an older state park campground about a 1 hour drive down scenic Ashley River Rd to Charleston. Really easy access to Ashley River plantations. Easy drive to park from I-95 or I-26.

Staff and host were very friendly and helpful.

Gravel campground loop and sites, a few potholes in road but nothing major. We levelled up easily on our site. Some sites are W/E/S, others water and electric only. Also has a walk in tenting area ticked away in the woods. Sites can fit larger rigs, they are nice and deep. Sites are fairly close but have some screening between them for privacy.

Restrooms and showers are older but very clean and usable.

Heavy day use on the weekend. There is an excellent launch ramp for small boats or tubing on the Edisto River. There are hiking trails but we didn't explore them.

I have to give three stars mostly for the lack of cell/ internet coverage. We have AT&T and had no service at all. Verizon users may have better luck. There is free WIFI at the office but we had issues getting on that also.
