Campgrounds in Charleston SC.

We are thinking about a run down to Charleston SC after we attend the Rally in Myrtle Beach. Just wondering on campgrounds, State Parks around Charleston. Things to do might be helpful to as there seems to be alot going on down there. Jim

There is a KOA in Mt. Pleasant and a rv park on the south side of Charleston. Why not stay parked in Myrtle Beach and drive the toad. Only 100 miles to Charleston. Stop in Georgetown, go to Hopsawee plantation,Hobcaw Barony. Lots to see on the way.
When in Charleston, go see the only tea plantation in the U.S. and see the Angel Oak near there, it is over 600 years old.

Also recommend James Island County Park. At this point, it is the best municipal RV park we've seen anywhere. Full HU sites, plenty of walking/biking trails, huge fenced dog park, lake, etc. Close to Folly Beach and 15 minute easy drive to all the downtown stuff.

I haven't camped in Charleston in years - I don't live that far away. However, looking at the maps, I like the location of this campground:

KOA Kampgrounds
3157 N Hwy 17
Mt Pleasant, SC 29466


You definitely should visit the Patriots Point Museum:
https://www.patriotspoint.org/explor.../uss_yorktown/

Also, the Civil War started in Charleston with canons firing on Fort Sumter. Take the Fort Sumter Tour.
Official Fort Sumter Tours, Charleston, SC | Visit Ft Sumter

If you are really into the Civil War Stuff, there are several other national park sites around Charleston.

Charleston is famous for their gardens. My favorite had always been Middleton Place:
https://www.middletonplace.org/

Bone Hall Plantations offers tours and is close to the KOA:
BOONE HALL PLANTATION: Home

One of the best ways to see old Charleston is by horse drawn carriage:
The Original 1-hour Fully Narrated Charleston Carriage Tour

Try a plate of Shrimp and Grits while you are there.

Stayed at the KOA in Mt Pleasant for a few nights earlier this Spring. Was very nice, and easy into Charleston.

We've stayed there several times and were very happy. Ask for a lakefront site, they only have a few and they go quick.

Our son was just transferred to North Charleston so we have to have a backup. James island would be my first choice followed by Oak Plantation on US17.

Definitely agree with James Island. I have lived in the Charleston area for all of my life. TONS to do in Charleston, Middleton Plantation is a working plantation with beautiful gardens. Downtown is fun shopping, the Market area is quite unique, lots of beautiful old homes down at the Battery, to mention a few that have not yet been mentioned. Lots of tours available from buses to walking to the diaper-clad horses pulling a carriage. And or course, there are the beaches, Folly or Sullivan's Island.

Have stayed at the Mt. Pleasant KOA. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If I was going back I would try to get a spot at James Island. Simply because the more the DW and I camp the more we seem to prefer the "non-commercial" campgrounds. Definitely do the Straw Market/downtown attractions. But honestly it's way over priced if you ask me. We loved the atmosphere and southern pace of downtown. Absolutely do the Patriot Point attractions and while you are at Pariot point take the short 15 minute drive to Fort Moultrie. Personally, I liked Fort Moultrie better than Fort Sumter. In my opinion, you've gotta do Sumter because of the rich history. But try Moultrie as well.
