I’ve been to Buck Hall several times. Excellent place to trailer your boat, cook over a campfire, and have a shower to wash the salt off at the end of the day. Views of the Intracoastal waterway are nice, watching the variety of boats pass by. The majority of the area is cleared grass, cutting down on bugs. Don’t forget to bring the frisbee! Since this isn’t a state park, they are tolerant to crackin a couple of cold ones. Boat landing is deep enough to drop a large boat into the drink, and cruising up Bulls Bay or heading south towards Dewees. Hiking a section of the Palmetto Trail is a good option for a day out of the sun due to the heavy maritime forest canopy. Best time of the year is Fall, Spring, and Winter. Trailering your boat will force you to pay for an RV site.
The place is very nice. We go every summer for a week but it seems like each year it falls a little more and more. The security are very serious about their job and almost had to show proof to a security guard that we were in the right spot while trying to back in. Sites are close but to be expected on the beach. Nice pool features with the pirate ship and lazy river. The beach is full but never packed. Lots of extras to do.
This campground is in a great location. Just 3 blocks from the beach. They have a shuttle that runs every hour. We chose to rent a golf cart while we were there which you are allowed to take outside of the campground. You just have to stay on roads that are 35mph and under. We really enjoyed cruising around and to the beach on it.
All of the other popular attractions are super close by. The longest drive we had to get to anything was 10 mins.
They also have a great pool, splash pad, jumping pillow, playground, and other scheduled kids activites. In addition there is a amphitheater where they have live music on certain nights. Another fun surprise was that they have free pancakes every morning from 9am-10am in the seating area by their small restaurant.
We stayed in a deluxe patio site which was great. Especially with the rain storms that are inevitable at the beach. Someone else in our party was at a full hookup back in site, and it got pretty swampy with the rain in those sites. The deluxe patio site came with a fire ring with two chairs, a small table with 2 chairs, and a Weber grill to use, which was nice so we didn’t have to dirty ours.
The ground were well maintained, and even during the rain storms you would always see groundskeepers hard at work.
They are currently working on updating some of the cabins, and freshening up paint and such around the campground. I am excited to see how it looks the next we go.
I would highly recommend staying here for your Myrtle Beach vacation.
I understand the point of this campground.
It is a very large area with no designated campsites. The vault toilet has grass growing around the entrance that is about knee high. There was a water spigot on site that worked. I would filter it first.
No one was there when we showed up for a mid-day lunch and nap!
If it isn’t hunting season this campground may be a good place to check if you need free.
Went for a weekend ride in the forest and chose this campground. It has a vault toilet and 8 sites that are first come first serve. Both Friday and Saturday night there was only one other site spoken for.
It was nice hearing the bull frogs in the overnight as well as the owls. Ensure you have some type of insect repellent as the mosquito population is not lacking. Sites are open and have plenty of room.
The picnic tables are made of concrete and are starting to show signs of aging. I don’t recall seeing running water anywhere on site, doesn’t mean there isn’t.
If you are looking for a free place to camp close to the coast or right off a forest road, you found it!
This campground was ok. If you like crowded, un-level, brownish water, and just no sense of relaxation, then this is the place for you. The place is packed. Great for the kids, because there is a ton of stuff for them to do. There is no time for a parent to catch their breath. Fireworks are shot off until 11pm or later every night. My campsite was very un-level. I about couldn’t reach the first step getting into my camper. The water hookup produced a discolored water that had a brownish tint to it. The staff at check in were just trying to herd everyone through like cattle. Didn’t even fix an error on their part when they should have. All in all it was ok. We may or may not go back again.
This place is like a small city! Could stay here & never have to leave! Good level spots, old shade trees. Laundry & grocery store complete with fishing & souvenirs! Even a post office! Free fresh drinking water, lots of immaculate showers & bathrooms. Trash pick up at your site! Its own water park & swimming pools. Truly a great vacation place for families . Beach is right there!
The park stipulates 10 mph through park however they allow the golf carts to be driven by 16 year olds/ teenagers and adults to drive faster. The teens have no respect for anyone else 2 people in our group got hit with one. They blast thier music up and down each street after 10pm. After almost getting run over myself by a girl who had no lights on I spoke with one of the 2 security guards that was just sitting parked watching the kids and they said they couldn't do anything about it. I think they should hold the parents/ kids accountable by taking kids off the carts and take the carts to parents to reprimand them and if continue take cart away with no refund. Maybe then the parents will pay attention to what is gping on rather than letting the do what they want.
This resort has everything you need if you want to camp next to the ocean. They clean the bathrooms three times a day, they are heated in the winter and a/c in the summer.
Most of the lots are concrete, or you can find some a little cheaper without concrete. They offer water, sewer and 30/50 amp service on every lot. The lots are level and nice.
If you want to rent a house, they have that option as well.
Nice grocery store, walk up window to order food or treats. Nice size laundromat. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Water park with a mat racer slide, tube slide and a lazy river. The kids splash zone is really nice.
Everyone rides golf carts around. Lots of security on staff to keep as many people in line as possible. The nightly golf cart parade on the strip from 7-11 is pretty cool.
Don't like crowds? Go in the off-season. This place has it all!
We stayed in June it was very hot and humid in the campground and the trails to the beach were infested with huge mosquitos. But once it opened up to the beach it was awesome. It rained a lot and the north campground we stayed in flooded and pretty much stayed underwater that entire week. Next time we will stay in the smaller south campground with full hookups.
This a a busy campground that is fun for the whole family. They have food trucks that serve really good BBQ. Pools indoors an out. Beach access mini golf. Ice cream shop. You can rent golf carts. They have great fishing ponds. I do wish they could get the sand spurs on the sites under control. Bathhouses are new and clean. We like going here in the off season when it’s not so crowded.
This is a military-only campground on Charleston AFB. The campground is located near the golf course and outdoor recreation center, providing close access to golfing, soccer golf, disc golf, a climbing wall, and archery range. A short walk away is the galley and a mile away is the gym. Right next to the sites is a large playground and covered shelter with grills. The sites are wide, level, paved, and well-spaced. The bathhouse is heated and clean. This campground was wonderful. Really, my only complaint are the speakers in the rec center parking lot that blare reveille and taps. You expect this on base. But boy, it is way-beyond-reasonable loud!!!!!! As for local recreation beyond base, it is a quick jaunt either to the west or east gates to get on roads into town. In Charleston, we walked around downtown, took the ferry to Ft Sumter, toured the USS Yorktown, and visited Ft Moultrie. We would have loved to go to a baseball game but the season hadn't kicked off yet. Would visit again and highly recommend. Just bring ear plugs.
We just love this place. It is so big with so many things to do you never have to leave the grounds. We camped feet from the ocean, other family members rented places. A golf cart is a must to get around… and the aren’t cheap 🤷🏻♀️. But will go back every chance we get.
The primitive group campsites have been recently improved with a new access trail (crushed gravel), new posts dividing each campsite and new food boxes. The group camping is located near the boardwalk access to the beach. Camp in the shade of the woods while listening to the ocean waves.
Great place for a couple days
WE camped here in 2018 winter and had a very good time. Other than February and if you are older than 55 or so you must move out after 2 weeks and sometimes if enough sites you can move to another site. In February they allow 4 weeks stay. Some sites are very level and some not so much, some smaller and some bigger. Pretty nice staff at the store and check in. The beach is gorgeous and a walk from campsites. Lots of great restaurants down the road and across the street is the Brookgreen Gardens which is a wonderful place to walk around and admire the plantings, there is wildlife area and you can take a ride up the river and see how life was back in the day. WONDERFUL place.
You are a sand dune away from the ocean, you pass over a causeway to get to the SP and Campground. There are alligators on both sides of the causeway, multiple birds lurking and flying in and out along the causeway with viewing places. The campground is very nice, most sites have NO sewer sites but they have water and electric. There are a few sites with sewer sites and there is, of course, a sewer dump station. The beach is gorgeous and LONG!!! You are not far from Myrtle Beach, from Georgetown and about 2 hours away from Charleston SC. Great place.
My buddies and drove our trucks off the normal road to find ultimate privacy. We didn’t stay on a set camp ground, with no cell service and no one bothering us we got to simply relax. We stayed in our trucks that night. The next morning after we made breakfast we explored for hours, in our trucks and by foot. It was absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to go again… hopefully sooner than later.
5$ entry fee per adult, however it kinda guarantees you a great spot on the beach. Plenty of room for parking. Campsites close to the beach. Plenty of even sites and hookups.
