Traffic can be heavy especially at the I26/526 intersection - a lot of trucks to and from the port. Remember this is a peninsula with few ways on or off. Campgrounds might be the Oak Plantation off US 17 South ( Oak Plantation Campground: Charleston
) or the KOA in Mount Pleasant - US 17 North ( Mount Pleasant, South Carolina Camping Vacation
) but either will have traffic issues at times. The very best CG in the area is the one at James Island County Park ( Charleston County Parks and Recreation - Campground & Cottages
) - just a little difficult getting to for some but well worth it and they have a shuttle to take you downtown so no need to fight for parking.
Anyhow, hope this helps and that you enjoy your visit!!
