“Great park but harrowing experience to get here”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Holy Moly! Getting here is a big rig nightmare! Charleston roads are chock full of big overhanging trees. We heard one ding after another hitting who knows what, and dodging was impossible especially on the two-lane roads. Once in the park, there are still lots of trees, not necessarily over the road, but making it tight to get into so... more

“Excellent park, low hanging limbs”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This park is huge, has lots of trails and activities and plenty of things to do like disc golf, corn hole etc. I would imagine people with kids would like this place because of the climbing wall, huge playgrounds and splash park. Dog lovers will enjoy the HUGE off leash dog park complete with doggie swimming beach. The FHU sites are ... more

“Beautiful, well taken care of campground. Very quiet”

Reviewed Apr 21, 2018

We loved it here. Our site was pretty open but we enjoyed watching all the cars & RVs come and go. It wasn’t very private. We booked only 5 months out so we were grateful to get any reservation. Biked loads! Great trails. Lots to see. Wifi wasn’t available unless we walked to the bathhouse. There, it was great & fast. Had a go... more

“Best county park we've been to”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This park sets the standard for County Parks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants a taste of what Charleston has to offer. At times, we didn't even want to leave the park! If you have a paddle board, bring it. If you have a bike, bring it! Awesome trails, and a nice lake to leisurely explore. ... more

“Good Campground and Good Location”

Reviewed Apr 03, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a great spot to stay for visiting both the city and the plantations. We visited a couple of plantations and also spent a day in the city. The campground sites are dirt and ours was pretty muddy from some recent rains. The website stated they had a laundry facility, which made us pretty excited since most state/county parks do ... more

“Lots to do and top-notch facilities”

Reviewed Apr 03, 2018

Overall Rating

We have stayed here twice and enjoyed it very much. The sites and bathhouses are clean and everything is well-kept. What really sets this campground apart is that it's in a county park which has a water park, massive dog park, hiking/biking trails, climbing wall, & shuttles to the beach & Charleston. Our second visit was on New Ye... more

“Not a good option for tall RVs.”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Tree limb clearance issues on the roads leading to the county park had us cancel our reservations. The tallest RV we notices within the campground was 12’2” (I asked the owners), so RVs that are around that height should ideally not have an issued navigating the roads to the county park and within the campground. Our challenge is that ... more

Reviewed Sep 18, 2017

Camped there Saturday night on a weekend trip away from the city. Drove with our city car and chose to camp at the Primitive Tent Site since we didn't need much more than a spot for the Tent and a fire ring. The park has 2 camping areas: full RV sites and a small field for tents only. The field is separated from the RV camp and has a s... more

“Great park with a short commute into the city.”

Reviewed May 04, 2017

Overall Rating

I booked this site on my way in from leaving Beaufort. Site 60 was right behind the office, but surrounded by trees. It felt very private and I had a great view. This park really had much to offer. It felt like a state park. There were kids biking, people walking and there is a another section with a big pool. Restrooms were large and ... more

“What a wonderful campground-for humans and dogs!”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2017

Would that we had had more time to spend here (and Charleston) and that we had not had to put down our lovely dog last December, as she would have loved it here. I was a bit apprehensive having read some reviews online telling of canceled reservations and rude staff so was happily surprised when our reservation was there (I had a re... more
