Wonderful RV park. During the day there is the near by airport noise, but evenings are peaceful and relaxing. With 7 am revilee and evening taps, you know you're on a military base. Also nice is the feeling of safety when the police cruise by regularly. We sleep comfortably feel very safe and secure.From the minute we arrive, the people have been so welcoming and friendly. The only bummer is due to covid, the laundry and showers are closed. But, we are so happy the park is open! The Camp Host's are very nice and I see them everyday working around the property, keeping it nice and clean. We will definitely stay again.
Upon arriving it was a very nice experience. Chris in the office was so helpful and he answered all our questions about the area and gave great recommendations of restaurants.
The campground is very large and spacious and many sites have mature trees. Bathhouses are clean, although they are older, and yes as someone else has mentioned it does smell strongly with deodorizers. I guess better than a bad smell.
We got a tip from a neighboring RVer to spray for small ants anywhere that the RV touches the ground so the ants won’t crawl up and get in our RV as it did theirs. We promptly went to buy ant spray and never had a problem. The ant problem could possibly be from recent rains they had.
The road in front of campground is extremely busy (Hwy 17) and I wouldn’t attempt ever turning left to get out. Just take a right and another right behind campground to get you out. It may take longer but worth your sanity.
Note that if the food truck Provata is onsite, give it a try. Great Italian food, all homemade including the bread. It was so good and the owners were so sweet!
This is a great campground for anyone who enjoys watersports. Lake Marion is a great place for boating, kayaking, and fishing. Camp sites are mostly level and have water and a variety of electrical hookup options. Some fun but easy hiking trails link the two campgrounds in a loop. Very pet friendly.
The pros: Poinsett State Park has some of the best hiking and biking trails in the Palmetto State. You could spend multiple days camping here and have a chance to hike different trails every day.
The cons: It's not easy to get in here with anything bigger than a full size pickup. The park road is very narrow and uneven with lots of large pot holes. The road to the campground is a little better, but also very narrow. It would be difficult to pull off to let another vehicle pass without fear of ending up off the road or hitting a tree.
We enjoyed the variety of hiking options here. It would be great if the state parks service could direct some funding to repairing and widening the roads and repairing some of the trails that were damaged in the 2015 flood that are now impassible.
Trevor is very helpful and kind. The place is located close to the beach and downtown Charleston. We were there on a few very hot days after lots of rain so the mosquitos were out in full force. We had 50amp power problems(breaker popped with only one of our two AC running) that I’m sure will be corrected soon. He has a diamond in the rough. With a bit of improvement, it could be great.
It looks nothing like South Carolina as you enter the gates. After half a dozen ups and downs and right turns you find yourself in a clearing and a large parking lot, a lake and a ranger station. Around the clearing are more than a dozen trails for hiking or MTB. It's a "mountain" in the low country.
