Very well put together campground. Located on a wildlife park, I saw a few alligators in the lake. Fairly peaceful, besides the fact we were right next to the pool so it got loud at times. Very nice and clean amenities. About a 20 minute straight shot to Hilton Head Island.
After more than 10 years of camping in various areas of the country, this is one of the nicest campgrounds. The main reason is the size of the sites. There is nothing worse than being crammed into a tiny space with barely enough room to put your slides and awnings without touching the RV next to you. This place should be a model to show other RV Parks what we as RVer’s want in a campsite. The place is immaculate, well maintained with friendly and helpful staff. The streets are wide which makes getting in and out a breeze. We had full hook up with cable. We did not have any luck with the WiFi, but we have hotspots on our phones. The pool was warm, the laundry facility was great. There is a big lake behind the pool and we enjoyed watching some of the small gators swim around in the evening from the wood dock. You can rent kayaks but since May is breeding time for gators, we opted not to. There is a nice hiking trail around the lake. The campground is located approximately 25 miles from Hilton Head and Savannah. There is a Publix and Walmart 4 miles from the campground and it is located conveniently a few miles off I-95. Very easy in and out. This place is geared toward big rigs which was awesome. The only downside was there are a few homes nearby that raise chickens and the roosters start crowing as early as 4:00 am. Overall, we would love to camp here again. We stayed a week in a 40’ fifth wheel and F350 dually. Plenty of room for both on the site.
Our family loves this campground! Lot for the kids to do! Had activities planned throughout our time there. Not much shade and camper had a hard time cooling but overall a wonderful experience. We will be back!
We had a great stay! Very easy in/out and beautiful grounds. Shower house was clean and the pool was nice. WiFi worked well. We enjoyed the hiking trails. Cell coverage was good for work (att & Verizon). We stayed in a lakeside site, which was spacious and pretty. They all had a nice concrete pad, big enough to make a patio from right outside your door. Lots of alligator warning signs were everywhere. We did not see any, but it did make noises in the night 100% scarier. Great location right off 95 and a quick drive to Hilton Head and Savannah. We’d definitely stay here again.
We called to reserve a week long stay and were told they had sites available, which turned out was only one. The campground is definitely a “no frills” park and mostly used by long term/permanent residents. The host/owner had us pull right next to his own rig, it was a tight fit and we had zero privacy. He then proceeded to sit on his RV stairs and smoke and stare at us both when we were outside and when we were in our rig. We could smell the smoke which isn’t ok with us. We didn’t even bother to put the slides out. When we set up the electricity we had fire ants attack us. We decided quickly that we’d only stay the night and we’d leave first thing in the morning. Across the street is a nice state park and campground (Colleton State Park) but they unfortunately didn’t have any sites open big enough for our 30 ft class A. I’d recommend staying there over this campground if you want to be in this exact area. We luckily found another campground closer to Charleston to stay at.
Very well taken care of, very nice caretakers, very close to HHI, Bluffton, Beaufort, Savannah. Super nice campground with lots of fun stuff for the kids to do. There is a small lake and kayaks, a common house for hanging out by the lake and dock area with a huge fire pit.
This is a great family campground, they have very well appointed RV sites, Tent sites and cabins that look like train Cabooses, and some others. but it is super nice and well taken care of. its close to 95 but you really don't notice that. people like this place because there were a lot of return visitors from way out of state. We had neighbors that snowbird in FL but they live in Manitoba, Canada and drive all the way over just to stay there on their way to FL.
This is the site of a lesser known confederate civil war prison. There was some archeological work going on when we were there. The spring is very pretty, with turtles and fish swimming under the bridges of the walkway, and there were lots of alligators along the stream. We let our dogs swim in the lake before we realized the gators were probably there as well. There is an aquarium for Georgia fish at the park. The campground is in tall pine trees with shade, but not much privacy. Most are level. Water and electric sites and a dump station.
It is a very small campground. Narrow winding dirt road to small campsites. Bathhouse in the center. Check out the site pictures on their website, they are accurate. We only have a 17 foot camper and it still felt small. We stayed on site 16 which was nice and quiet. Site 18 would have been easier to back in to with the same amount of privacy. We got there early and were able to go right to our site. There were only 4 other campers there and the hosts. The bathhouse was older and could have been cleaner but it was okay. Most importantly it was warm. Our first night it got down to 27 and the water at the hose bib froze but once the sun came up it was fine. Less than 30 minutes to downtown Aiken. We loved the town and it was very pet friendly. Hopelands Gardens was beautiful, free and pet friendly. Had some good beer at Aiken Brewing Company and enjoyed all the shops downtown. We did go into Augusta and that was another 30 minutes from downtown Aiken. We will definitely go back in the warmer months to see some steeplechase horse racing and training, canoe and kayak the Edisto River and go hiking in Hitchcock Woods. There are quite a few museums we did not get to that would be nice to visit as well. I would definitely go back.
Park Ranger Larry is everything you would want in a ranger! He is proud of this park and it shows - everything is clean around the campground and in the bath house. Site 11 was riverside and had a great view! If we could pick any site, we would probably pick Site 9 as it had a slightly better view. There isn't much to do in the area, but the campground is only about an hour from Charleston, SC. However, we chose to camp here for the kayak trip! We had a great day (despite the super high level of the river) kayaking 23 miles down to Givhan's Ferry. An added bonus was the great cell service!
We stopped for one night, very convenient location right off the highway. Our kids loved the gem mining and playground. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the bathrooms were very clean.
I wish the RV sites had more privacy. There was none. It reminded me of an RV park, not a campground.
Pool was fantastic and clean. Bathrooms were new and clean. Showers were well lit and clean. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Small dog park but our boxer loved getting to run a bit off leash!
Sites were in the sun not much shade around.
We will be back without a doubt!
We stayed in the Cabin which was great with a baby! AC kept us cool in the heat of the summer but we were still close to our friends in tents and campers… nice tree coverage and close (quick drive) to the Edisto river/beach. Where you can raft or hang out at the beach.
Right by the cabin is a walk down to the river for fishing. Don’t recommend swimming here! undertow could be dangerous… there’s a path to the water on the other side of the camp where we set up to fish also but lost a lot of lures in the brush. Kids had a blast anyway!
We would love to camp here again and have a better experience. It's a nice, small park. The office has games available to borrow, there's a playground, and the river's edge is fun to explore (what little you can access). We loved how convenient the park was to other things in the area we wanted to visit.
I booked our campsite online. Looking at the map, I could see our site was close to "a" road. I didn't realize it was a very busy highway. Why they put all those campsites along a highway is just beyond me. We had 8 in our group, 6 of them being children. None of us slept well being constantly woken up by the sounds of transport trucks driving straight for us. It put a major damper on our trip.
Nice, clean campsites. The bath house was very nice and kept up well. Plenty to do for people of all ages.
very family oriented campground! always something to do with an activity list full of different things. pool was very nice and never over crowded. will be going here again!!!
This campground is 20 miles from town. it is a long way out. The site is a loop for 35 foot or less and it has tent sites! it has one bathhouse with 2 showers and two toilets. it is not enough when it is full. It does not have sewer but a dump site. No phone or internet use. It was very quiet and it offered walking trails, small beach area on lake.
The camp site are so close to each it is ridiculous! The hiking trails were good and clean. We left early it was that disappointing.
This state park has a beautiful natural spring that is home to aquatic turtles, fish and aligators. It has history as a prisoner of war camp for the civil war and you can see some of that natural history as you walk it's many trails. The knowledgeable rangers work hand in hand with the local college and it's students in archeology to uncover more and more of it's secrets. Here you can play on athe playground with its water splashpad, go down the slides, and walk around the stream looking for aligators (don't feed the aligators) There is birdwatching, kicking and canoeing or paddleboats if you prefer on the lake. You can primitive camp, use a tent or RV space with water and power or rent a cabin. The friends of the park and the rangers host many various activities to make your stay a memorable one. Enjoy!
