Charleston SC. Real reviews.

So my wife and I are looking for real reviews from you all of the rv parks/campgrounds near Charleston SC for the summertime. Looking at the web to find reviews has seen its share of positive and terrible reviews of places near Charleston. We we're hoping for some real reviews from people we feel are trustworthy that have been in the area to make a better informed decision.

Any help would be Great and I hope helpful for other members who may be planning to go through at some point.

I am also hoping that the title will help shape the search so it is friendlier using the search on the app.

I stayed at James Island County Park Campground and thought it was fantastic. I stayed in Feb so donít have summertime experience. I know there is a pool and splash park and lots of walking/biking trails. Very convenient to get into downtown Charleston for sightseeing. Not too far from Foley Beach. Donít have experience with any other parks in the area.

We've stayed at James Island and Oak Plantations and you can't go wrong with either one. Charleston is a great walking city. The restaurants are super. Have a great trip.

I start my search with CampgroundReviews.com and after I narrow my search I start looking up each campground on campsitephotos.com to get an idea of what it looks like on the ground. After one passes those tests I search the camp on Youtube and more often than not it will come back with several videos of it, sometimes with drone footage.

That gives you a pretty good idea of what type of campground it is, how much space you have and what the scenery is like.

FYSA James Island County park runs a triathlon series in the summer. 5 Sundays in summer are busy for a few hours in the morning. It is clear by noon.

We stayed at Oak Plantation for 3 weeks in November 2017. It wasn't the best place we've ever stayed but certainly not the worst either. Everyone is different, but here are our pros and cons.
Pros
Nice size RV sites. Reasonable in price. Outside of town but an easy drive to downtown Charleston. An easy drive to one of the nature preserves a little further out of town. A short distance to a bicycle path.
Cons
The water stunk. We run our water through a filter outside the RV and then have a Brita water filter inside the RV for our drinking water. Running water through both filters and the water still tasted like swamp water so we had to drink bottled water the whole time there. It's on a fairly busy 4 lane road that can be hard to get out on the road especially at rush hour. I used the bathroom/shower house a couple of times during our stay and it always had a musty smell, it was clean, just had a musty smell.

If we ever go back I would not hesitate staying there again. The Pros outweighed the cons.

If you enjoy eating out in restaurants may I suggest you do a "food tour" with one of the companies that does this sort of thing. We did one, I can't remember the name of the company we used but we were able to sample quite a few places and the food was fantastic! We also got a good history lesson of Charleston along with it.
