February 2017. Spent 2 nights with a decent sized group of friends. There was a renaissance fair going on, bunch of people LARPing like it was medieval times. Knights and swords and peasants and stuff. 10/10 would watch again. Creek is fun to float in the summer.
Bald eagles,owls,otter, fish. It's beautiful
Huntington Beach State Park is beautiful and basically being across the road from Brookgreen Gardens just adds to the beauty. Have had the opportunity to camp here twice. Not much privacy between sites but the park is nice. The birding and wildlife are amazing, especially when you consider how close you are to the rambunctiousness of Myrtle Beach. Needs to be on your list.
Near downtown Charleston. Easy to get in and out. Reasonable rates. Near everything around Chai.
We stayed at Lake Aire the week before labor day. Staff was great and so was the park. Had a great time while visiting Charleston area. We had. 50 amp site for our coach and it was clean. Bathroom nearby was very clean. Playgrounds which we did not use look nice and safe
We will return when we are in the area again
This is simply the best places to camp when visiting Charleston, especially if you have 4 legged family members. The off leash area is fabulous. Bike and walking trails are all paved and flat, no hills. Convienient to beaches and Charleston attractions. Come and relax or go and enjoy. It's hard to get it wrong.
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.
Water park in the summer and Festival of Lights in the winter. Clean fun and friendly park.
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!
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.
Small campground not far from Charleston and very close to Bee City Zoo. This campground has several shelters one with a fireplace at both ends. The tent camping area is awesome and has a great layout with lockable chuck boxes on each site along with power and water. There are several large fields to let the kids run wild. There are also a few hike in sites in the very back with some bathrooms.
If we had more time then we would have stayed longer to enjoy the lake and more. We pulled in late in the afternoon and then headed right into the city. There were a few sites remaining when we got there but virtually no one in the back lot tent area. They have a large tent only area and big parking area. They could do something to cater to van campers with their big lot out back. The showers were nice and they had a nice park and splash pad next to the pond. They have a nice game room, some yard games, and other amenities. Hookups at all the sites except for the tent area.
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 enjoyed our stay here. The site was great, we enjoyed being right next to the pond. The resident ducks entertained us everyday and would follow us around. We were right next to the playground, but there weren’t a lot of kids there, so didn’t have any issues in that regard. WiFi worked well and cell coverage was good (att & Verizon). Easy to get to downtown Charleston. We would definitely stay again.
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.
Perfectly situated near folly beach! Awesome trails. Pet friendly ,great fishing. Clean restrooms.
Great place for a couple days
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.
