Charleston, SC Camping

We are thinking about going to Charleston, SC. this year for thanksgiving. I would to know if anyone knows about an RV park by or around any water or shipping lanes. But any good place would do.

We stayed at the Oak Plantation Campground back in April. Very clean and the sites have a lot of room.

You can see the confederate sub the Hunley while you are in Charleston.
- cheap gas/diesel at the BP station near the campground
- Bessingers BBQ has a great buffet

KOA in Ladson was nice. We stayed there in May, 2011. Some nice restaurants in the area, and cheaper than in Charleston.

Many will argue that James Island County Park is the best Charleston place, and if our grandkids are with us that is where we stay. We much prefer Oak Plantation, however, as a more adult environment (ie quieter). Reviews are here

James Island County Park is one of the nicest if not the nicest in that area. It's in a good location near to historic downtown Charleston, real good food, and Folley Beach is 10 minutes away.

If you're military affiliated you can enjoy Short Stay naval Recreation Area which is northwest of Charleston.

We stayed at Oak Plantation earlier this year. Nice campground. For two reasons we will look for another campground on our next trip. They have a 12:00 check in time, we arrived a little early, our site was empty, we were required to set on the side of the road looking at the site for approx 20 minutes. The second we had to drive over 5 large speed bumps to get to our site.

We stayed there last year. You must have gotten a mean person at the office. We checked in about 11 am the morning we arrived and were told the site is empty..go ahead and get on it. You are right about the speed bumps. They are serious about those.

We stayed at Oak Plantation as well. It's a little ways out from downtown Charleston, but we enjoyed it. Plenty of good restaurants nearby if you like smaller local establishments, which we do. Downtown is awesome, of course, but touristy.

James Island - hands down

We visit Charleston 8 - 10 times a year always try for James Island County Park. There is a KOA north of town in Mount Pleasant area that is our second choice, but only when James Island is not available. Have not stayed at the Plantation campground mentioned, primarily because it is south of town and I live north. James Island at Thanksgiving is going to be tough, call now and if not available get on wait list. I have had about 90% success rate on wait list since they have a very liberal cancellation policy and lots of folks make reservations just in case they want to go.

Charleston is beautiful city, and the campground has transportation to and from town. Parking is a major issue down town, you will either pay or park a distance away and walk, unless you are unusually lucky enough to find a spot near the attractions. My son works downtown and we get to use his leased parking space - sweet!

Have fun and PM me if you want any additional information. Lots to do at James Island in addition to the campground too!
