“Our stay was not horrible.”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2019

Overall Rating

We had a fairly nice stay. Our site was a bit muddy. There had been quite a bit of rain before and during our stay. I believe the rate is a bit much especially for only water and 30 amp electric. The roads entering the area are narrow and crowded with trees and traffic is pretty heavy. The employees are very nice and helpful. The f... more

RznourRaptor gang stayed here while visiting Folly Beach. The site was great. The service was excellent. The bike trails were really fun. Going back in June.

Wanted to spend a few days in Charleston and felt this was close. It is close, with wide level sites, full hookups, and generally vegetation between sites affording seperation.

“Cant get a better place to camp near Charleston”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Camped here 4/8/2018 to 4/13/2018. Great place to stay. Maybe ten minutes to Charleston downtown historic areas, and fifteen minutes to Folly Beach. Lots of nature nearby, so don't forget to visit CAW CAW county park. Sure its expensive but still less so than others, and very convenient and authentic. No cartoon characters, LOL.

As everyone else has said - this is a great campground in a great area! The staff is super helpful and the facilities are all great. We have been living in Charleston for the past 10 years or so and after selling our house found ourselves at this campground three different times in the past 2 months! I'll tell you a little more abou... more

Very nice park. Campsites are partially wooded and not paved. Well taking care of with full hookups. Each site has a picnic table & fire ring. Most sites are back-ins but some are pull-through. Lots of games around the campsite and lots of kids playing and biking around. Very nice water park is right across the campsite (walking distan... more

“Great park but harrowing experience to get here”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

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

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

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

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
