Located only 15 minutes from downtown Charleston and 10 minutes from Shem creek this campground is gorgeous and spacious. They offer kayak and bike rentals. There’s a beautiful lake that allows catch and release fishing. Some tent sites and cabin sites are right along the water and offer nice views. There’s a one mile loop trail through the woods and along the lake. There are waste bags scattered throughout the park and a huge dog park. (But it’s quite far from the campers) There are multiple playgrounds and many kid friendly activities to do including corn horn and other games. The price is more expensive than we’d like to pay, especially for a site with only water and electric. No dump station. The bathrooms are clean and accessible to wheelchair bound guests. The store has everything you may have forgotten! Overall our stay was great!
We were there in our pop up earlier this month (February, 2021). It was chilly and windy, but we came prepared. We stayed in our pop up, with heat and we were cozy. Our first night we saw a spectacular sunset! The next day we climbed the lighthouse, and had a good conversation with the volunteer tour guide. The next day we went out to the boneyard beach end and had the place to ourselves. The bathhouse was really nice. It was always clean with plenty of hot water.
Pretty large campground but nicely wooded. Great location for day trips into Charleston. We stayed only one night but will probably come back when the weather is better.
We stayed 1 night on our way down to Florida. Very tight and most if not all of the sites had no gravel and they were extremely muddy. Hookups are mounted very low to the ground. Bathrooms are dated but clean. Ok place if you need to overnight and stay close to I-95.
It was our first time in SC, and also the first time on a barrier island. After Thanksgiving we camped here for 9 days. Everyday was filled with gorgeous nature, hikes and bike tours. We got lucky with a campside closer to the inland, no 76, which was more wind and flood protected. (campsites at the beach were severely flooded after a night of thunderstorms) We cherished our own little oasis. A lot of gorgeous large trees surrounded our spot, hence it was very shady. Good for the summer but in the cool fall, we craved the sun. Therefore we often just went to the beach to read and lounge. We loved it.
Lovely campground with forested, private sites. Palm trees and oak trees with Spanish moss. Nice hiking trails. Phenomenal dog park. We stayed here in January 2021 and will come again in February 2021.
We're locals and visited the KOA to check availability before recommending it to incoming traveling friends. Due to Covid and no apparent individual working the office, we didn't bother with check-in rather made a quick pass through the closest loop to complete our assessment. We almost completed the 200 ft journey to the exit when all of a sudden golf-carting security cut us off at the pass and coldly demanded we leave. We bit back laughter and bid Officer Fife a good day subsequently deescalating a national emergency in the making.
Our friends wisely chose Charleston County Park over this location.
