Great place for family camping

Went camping there when my son was young lot of room to camp (tent) keep an one ear on creters. Great trials clean bath house good fishing

Owner operated and convenient. The staff was top notch!

The sites are roomy, the bathrooms have been recently updated and are very good. The grounds were tidy and the front dest folks were very helpful. Will come back!

Short walk through Maritime forest to beautiful beach

There are only 6 tent sites at this RV friendly park. We stayed in site 4 and had a cut through to the beach. Site 2 also could access the shortcut, but other sites had a slightly farther walk. Going before the bugs come out is a must. Potable water on site and a short walk to bath houses. Beach is absolutely breathtaking and not crowded.

We also went on a night hike to the beach and saw so many stars!

No long hiking trails to speak of, but a few short walks through forest and an interpretive trail are available.

Tent sites are close together. There is little visual or auditory privacy.

Raccoons are abundant and the park has provided lockers for all food. We didn’t have any problems, but neighbors who didn’t store food properly did.

Camp site is situated on a pad that I assume is set up that way for flooding, but it made the campsite feel cramped, even though there were 2-4 feet of cleared space around the raised pad before the tree line.

Nice spot

Nice spot water and bathrooms on site very quiet and peaceful

Beautiful campground with lots of activities!

Awesome dog park with separate areas for large and small dogs, a water park, climbing wall, bike/walking path and much more. Close to historic Charleston and Folly Beach. Friendly and helpful staff, nice clean bath houses with laundry and kitchen facilities. Super nice campground!

Central location for Charleston

Nice park with lots to do. Central location for visiting Charleston and Fort Sumpter and the Low Country. Great dog park with lake! We had 2 days of heavy rain and some sites flooded, but everything drained well. Clean showers. Water park/splash pad.

Beautiful views and ambiance.

Best views for a cheap campground. Campsite hots we had were knowledgable and helpful. Not far from downtown Charleston.

No Swimming!

This campground is located directly adjacent to the Intercoastal Waterway, and there is a boat ramp located nearby but there is no access to go swimming here. There are lots of oyster beds lining the rocks that are serving as a perimeter to the waterway, so scrambling through can be hazardous if you go down there. The tent campsites have a good breeze, but once you get back into the trees the mosquitoes can be very bad.

Only campground in Mt. Pleasant.

This campground is near Charleston,SC and the Beach at Isle of Palms.

Awesome location with lots to do!

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 we found ourselves at this campground three different times in the past 2 months! 

This is in a super convenient location for visiting Folly Beach. Folly has a cute downtown with lots of restaurants and bars. There is a fun night scene there as well. The campground is on James Island and not far from Wal-Mart, drug stores and anything else you might need. When we visited during the summer break there were kids all over the campground riding bikes and having a ball!

This is also the most convenient campground for visiting gorgeous downtown Charleston. There is so much to do in Charleston and so many great restaurants to try. Definitely take a walk on The Battery (ideally at sunset) and take a carriage tour.

Here is a little more info on the specific sites we were in:

Site 115: This site is on the pathway to the bath house so there isn't as much privacy when you are sitting outside of the RV as one might like. However, it was really convenient for doing laundry! 

Site 48: This was our favorite of all of the sites. It is more private and had the best cell service of the ones we were in. It's a little bit further from the bath house than the other sites we stayed in, but we thought the privacy was worth it.

Site 117: This was the first site we were in. All of the sites in the park are great, but this one was shady and very wet. It rained pretty much the whole time we were there and the site seemed to never dry out!  

Site 71: This is a pretty big site so that was nice. It got morning sun and was much drier than 117. Site 71 is a shared site, but it didn't really matter since we were in the site that faced out to the big yard. Site 72 had to stare at our RV the whole week.

We also heard from a campground host that sites 86 and 88 flood when it rains. FYI!

When you are driving into the campground, make sure to follow the brown signs leading you to the campground. The live oaks in Charleston are gorgeous, but some of the limbs definitely hang a little low in places! Following the brown signs will help you avoid them.

Awesome spot right on the Intercoastal Waterway!

We had a great week at Buck Hall! The campground isn't very large so I definitely recommend making a reservation. During shrimp baiting season (60 days starting the Friday nearest September 15) the campground is completely booked. Plan accordingly! There is really nice boat landing and fishing/crabbing pier in the campground. We had a blast kayaking around and had some awesome dolphin encounters. The historic town of McClellanville is super cute and I definitely recommend a seafood dinner at TW Graham's! Their key lime pie is amazing as well! The nearby Sewee Visitor Center has red wolves and is free to visit. They also have RV parking! We enjoyed this, but if you have kids I think it would be a must do! You can call ahead and find out when they will be feeding the wolves. The crabbing is great at the campground and we had a delicious crab boil as a result! The only reason I am not giving this campground 5 stars is that the bathrooms were pretty gross. They were working on them while we were there so maybe there is a brighter future for these run down bath houses. Our hotspots worked great here too!

Lots of activities in the park and nearby!

There is so much to do in this park and in the Murrell's Inlet area. Also, the beach is gorgeous! We had a great time riding bikes over to the causeway and watching the alligators cross the road to feed at low tide and all of the birds wading around - even a roseate spoonbill. It was incredible! Also, there are lots of bars, restaurants and stores nearby that are on the water. We were in the newer South Campground and all of the facilities were really nice. However, the sites were a little close together and there aren't many trees on this side of the campground. The only downside was the poor internet. We had a hard time getting anything to work! We couldn't even take calls from inside our RV. We hear the other side of the park has a little better service. Still a great week at the beach with lots to offer in the area and the park.

Everything you could want in a campground.

We didn’t see a bad spot in the whole place. RV sites are secluded, allowing you privacy. The shower houses looked pretty new and were very clean and roomy. There is coin laundry available. It is in a state park and there is a water park, amazing dog park, picnic and outdoor games area. Book early b/c they fill up quick. It is close to just about anything you would want to do in the area.

quiet campground

I’ve stayed at this campground 4 times now. it is reasonably priced, quiet, clean, and the staff are very helpful.

Good location but an hour from the beach

It’s in the middle of town in North Charleston so it’s near lots of store but it is loud and the spots aren’t very shaded. But it’s much cheaper than staying at a hotel and the campground is run by young adults who have no idea what’s what but the place was clean and very family friendly

Beautiful scenery

Loved this park! There are several tours that would be gegeat to go but we didn't have enough time to get to them. We stayed in the rustic tent sites which I wouldn't recommend. 1. You have a bit of a hike in. #2 Raccoon bothered us while we were eating and he wasn't a bit timid. 3. Ants got in my car with all the doors shut and windows up and made an ant pile on the racks on top of my car overnight. Way more rustic then what I was hoping for. We were much closer to the beach though than the other sites so could here the ocean from our site.

Family friendly

Great place for families. Not very secluded. It is pretty much one big open green space with tent sites circling in a loop around the green space. You cannot park your car right at the site. There is a parking lot so you have to hike in just a little bit. The park there is really nice though and nice trail that takes you to the dock and marsh. There is a shower and they even have laundry facilities. Great play area for kids during the day also with a spray play. Volleyball nets throughout the area and you can rent bikes, kayaks, sup, and pedal boats. Also have a climbing wall. This was a great place to get our feet wet when we first started camping.

Clean, well organized and right on the beach

This campground has great staff, is clean, has history and beautiful! It’s right on the beach and private. Raccoons are the only problem at night

Off the beaten path

Great campground! The kids really loved walking the trails and viewing all of the wildlife! Gators galore, along with plenty of waterfowl especially. Roomy sites, very clean facilities, plenty of shade. A little tricky walking to/from the ocean, but manageable. We will be vck, for sure.

Close to Charleston, but out of the Hustle and Bustle

We wanted to stay close to Charleston and be able to visit the beach, but all the beach campgrounds were full, so we found this KOA. It wasn't a bad drive at all to get to downtown Charleston or any of the close beaches. It was so easy to get there, right off the interstate, and check-in was a breeze. We were one of only a few tent campers. Most people were in RVs and Campers, but the noise was minimal after dark and we felt like we were out in the wilderness. Our dogs even came with us and enjoyed the dog area. The showers were kind of small for my liking. I always felt like I was about to touch the wall when showering, but other than that, everything was great.

Angels Stay in Heaven - and this is it!

Nowhere you may roam will you find better people and nicer accommodations than at Angel's Landing! Al Jones is the owner and he has been doing this for a very long time. The campground has expanded over the years but is still very cozy. The restaurant serves up great food if you are not a camp cooker. Several businesses nearby usually have workers who lunch there regularly. There is a boat launch, and bait and tackle shop adjacent to the restaurant. They have a wonderful events planner and almost always something special is happening, whether Halloween parties, golf cart decorating parades, pool party/cookouts, BBQ & covered dish dinners. This is a great family oriented campground, but these people know how to adult party, too.

Awesome campground

This is a fantastic campground. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are very well maintained. There are activities offered including a wagon ride through a plantation. There is a pool. They offer bike rental, along with kayak/paddle boat rentals. There’s a great dog park our pups loved. We paid a little extra for a deluxe site with full hookups and a lake view. The deluxe site also had a concrete pad, brick fire pit, and a swing. It was a shady spot with big oak trees. There is a nice camp store. The location of this campground is perfect near stores, restaurants, and not far from the beach.


this is where my daughter wanted to go when she finished college. big sites close enough to myrtle to do to tourist sites then back to a nice beach and quiet campground

Family owned

8 miles to downtown, courteous staff, clean

Great Location

Easy access to all of the tourist spots and nice that it was gated.

Wonderful Campground

This is one of the best "all around" campgrounds we have visited. Sites are spacious and clean. plenty of sights to see in Charleston. It has a fantastic dog park and several miles of paved walking/biking paths. Great local restaurants, carriage tours, forts, shopping and more! Awesome place to stay!

Right on the intercoastal water, Great for sunsets and fishing

This campground was perfection. There are docks, a boat ramp, fantastic bathroom\shower houses! The intercoastal waterway goes through the center of this campground giving us amazing views of dolphins playing at sun set. This campground is highly recommended and a short drive to the Angel oak tree is a must see while in the area!

Family Friendly Camping

We love camping at Short Stay. The only downfall is the geese. They leave a mess everywhere. But otherwise the people are friendly, the rates are great, and it’s nice to be right on the lake.

Beautiful State Park

We had a great time. The site has a lot of raccoons that obviously have been fed too often so keep everything stored away pretty good.
