Staff less than helpful. Pulled off in cart to site ignoring an illegally parked Ram 3500 that caused us to hit the yellow fence on far side scraping the side of our rig and destroyed a TPMS sensor. Even the manager admitted the Ram was illegally parked. But no one even apologized. The staff the day of check in looked...

We are sorry that you drove into the yellow safety barrier in your efforts to avoid the Ram. We are always happy to ask someone to move a vehicle, but unfortunately the damage had been done before we were notified. We believed there was ample room to maneuver as the turn would be made for leading to other rows in...

Hubs and I stayed here from the 14 to the 19 of April while visiting Charleston and Savannah. The weather, thankfully, was amazing so the place was really busy when we checked in. We tent camp, and while this place is really geared towards the RV campers, we were treated very well by the friendly staff. The only real drawbacks...

Overall, this is a great place to stay. We were there basically to sleep. During the day, we were out exploring Charleston but if you are hoping for a relaxing camping experience, I don't think this is it. We were pleasantly surprised it wasn't as bad as some of the other reviews. The permanent campers were not a issue or...

A mixed review. First, the front staff is friendly, but if you have a problem they can't help. We first arrived it was dark. The spot they crammed us in was tight. They moved us around to a spot that was a pull through and much bigger. We couldn't see much. It just didn't feel right. At 1 in the...

We checked in on March 6th and left on March 20th. We stayed in the B section from the 6th-16th. Really a nice site. We were surprised by the quietness of the campground. You can hear some traffic from the main road and planes overhead. But it didn't bother us at all. At our site there is some bright lights...

We camped two nights and were very pleased with the campground. Nice office staff, good sized spot, trash pickup twice a day, clean bathroom, hot showers, laundry available, well kept, quiet. Very close to Charleston attractions.

Beware of PERMANENT campers! We had an end site, I think they called it a deluxe. We did have a patio with a swing and a fire pit. Too bad we couldn't sit outside and enjoy it! The permanent campers across from us were constantly in a domestic dispute. Yelling, throwing things, the man even kicked the screen door so...

This was a nice campground and inexpensive. I ended up here after a long excursion of trying to find one of the campgrounds in a national park. (I'll review them too). It was clean even though it was quite busy already and quiet for the amount of people which was really a nice surprise. The only think I would ask...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You'll know this campground is special the minute you drive through the entrance. Azaleas, oaks and loblolly pines give a signature touch to its Lowcountry charm. Nearby, the historic Magnolia Plantation and Middleton Place feature beautiful gardens. Beat the summer heat at Whirlin' Waters Adventure Waterpark (located within North Charleston Wannamaker County Park). Attractions abound in lovely Charleston, where horse-drawn carriages clip-clop along the historic harbor. Tour Fort Sumter National Monument, where the Civil War began, and the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. Bring a group - the campground has a great recreation building with a full kitchen and meeting facilities. An exciting addition to this KOA is the family lodge accommodation - a fun home-away-from-home that sleeps up to eight people. Pool: March 15 - October 15. Max pull thru: 70 feet. Your host: Kimberly Drake. ... more   less
