Hilton Head

Recommendations for a nice campground in or near Hilton Head?

Will be staying a week in July to spend time with kids that have rented a home on Hilton Head island. We will use the motorcoach and would like to be reasonably close (they are staying on the south side of the island).

Thanks for any suggestions.

Have looked at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach which is about 4 miles from their rental property. Its nice but wondering what choices we might have, if any, for this trip.

Gary and Cindy

HH Motorcoach Resort is OK, but IMHO, not worth the price...unless you play tennis. Lots tend to be smallish; 80% you won't get satellite. Spots on the lake are the best, but most expensive. I just viewed it as a very old park, that some owners have tried to upgrade their lots that are for rent.

HH Marina is less expensive, but is tighter. Seems OK. Lots more choices as you go further North towards Myrtle Beach. Beyond that, not a lot of choices. JMHO

Stayed on HH Harbor resort a few years ago. Great place. Had a wonderful site on the water.

A few years back we stayed there and enjoyed it, did not stay in one on the water because they seemed smaller but the site we had was plenty spacious. Very close to everything.

Gary and Cindy,

Your best bet is dependent upon what amenities your interested in having convenient access to. Both places are really great but probably for differing reasons. Our preference was the HH Motorcoach Resort because it was within walking distance of a hub of shopping, dining, beach, bike paths, etc. If you're into bicycling, you can ride from the resort to the beach on beautifully landscaped paved bike paths which extend for many miles. The resort is also gated and very quiet with beautiful landscaped lots with privacy, and of course the usual amenities like nice laundry, pool, exercise room, tennis, etc. Street lighting is minimal within the resort and campfires are not permitted.

HH Harbor is very nice, close to water, friendly and more, but its proximity to that which interested us was not favorable. Bike riding or walking was too far and so a car travel was the only option. Otherwise, I would stay here in a heart beat. You can't go wrong staying at either resort.

cheers,
Joopy

Jupiter's assessment is spot on. We prefer to stay at the Motorcoach Resort for the same reasons. We were able to bike to the beach, restaurants, and stores and only got in the car a few times. We visited the Marina while there and thought the sites were much more basic than the the sites at the Motorcoach Resort. Also, satellite is not a necessity since their cable is very extensive.

Agree with StevieG, the bicycle riding is great from that resort, had fun watching the Alligator in their pond, used to be a Gelato place close by that was great!!
