“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 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 we a... more

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

Overall Rating

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

“Good, but avoid the "buddy sites"”

Reviewed Dec 26, 2016

Overall Rating

Overall, this park was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. The location can't be beat, as it was just a short 15 minute drive to downtown Charleston, and the park is very pretty with lots of hiking trails and other activities. The sites are generally pretty nice, with a lot of foliage between them which gives a sense of privacy. U... more

“Big park with lots of activities close to Charleston and other attractions”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2016

This place is huge. Lake, boat ramp, bike trails, water park, big playground and ropes course. There was an Outdoor Festival while we were there with kayak and paddle boards to demo and I gather they have a lot going on at other times. Campground is well kept and organized along a few manicured loops. A few laundry machines located... more

We did not want hookups but were told we had to have them if there were sites available. The park is very nice with very large sites. The bike trail was really nice, all paved. about 3 miles of paved trail. Wifi was iffy, they have a shuttle into Charleston for $10.00 per person. The traffic is horridness. It also rained the 3 d... more

After traveling to beat a storm, we pulled into James Island County Park to find an absolutely pristine oasis draped in spanish moss. We had only booked for two nights, but we immediately wanted to stay longer. When checking in the let us know about a promotion of 30% off a stay of 7 days or longer. We knew we needed to take advant... more

“County park that feels like a resort, close to both Folly Beach and Charleston.”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2015

Overall Rating

We may have had one of the best spots in the campground. Some of the others look very close to each other, but we had a wall of trees on either side of us in #26. This place fills up quickly and were full when I tried to reserve about 6 weeks prior, but I am very glad I asked if they had a waiting list. The alternative was a commercial... more
