Where To Stay In Charleston SC

We will be heading to Charleston SC the middle of July. We have always stayed at James Island County Park and was wondering if there are any other CG near Charleston that are just as good or better. Any input would be appreciated.

We just returned from Charelston,and we also stayed at the Oak Plantation CP. It was our 1st visit and I would recommend it to anyone traveling through. I also agree that it is a very convenient location.

If you are looking for a"park" atmosphere with lots of activities for kids, James Island is arguably your best choice. We prefer Oak Plantation for a more adult experience.

We have spent the last few winters at Shuman's RV park in Canadys SC (1/2 way between St. George and Walterboro on Hwy 15 and about 200 yds from the Edisto River. Also not far from Summerville for dining and theatre and Ladson (giant flea market) It is clean, quiet and has excellent full hookups (great water and the electricity never falls below 121 V so A/C is not a problem) at a very reasonable price ...$16 IIRC. Pull thru and back ins will accomodate any size RV and the summer is their slow time. It is 45 minutes into Charleston and 75 minutes into Savannah. The only drawbacks are a lack of cable TV., (but good satellite coverage if you use that)the need to be self-contained(no washrooms/showers) and very little for smaller children to do. Mrs. Shuman, a kind and generous lady, generally shares her bountiful garden with campers. Good neighbours too.
The state park is across the road for hiking and fishing and there are canoe rentals nearby as well for the outdoor experience. Beidler forest and the Great Swamp Sanctuary are also some of the attractions.
We have found it to be a very convenient spot and sort of our second home. Any questions...please contact me and I'll be happy to answer them.
