Depending on how long you want to stay you might want to check out the Core of Engineer parks in the area.. South Carolina has tons of them.

I am in the upstate area but when I checked into one here I found very nice sites, firly level if not fully level (It was easy to level the rig) large "Patio" area.. 50 amp service all sites, alas no sewer, just a dump station.

With the senior discount card (My wife is over 62, I'm getting close to it) the sites were very nicely priced. I've spent 3weeks (not all together) at this park so far,

I also spend about a third of my winter at a county park... Can't help you in the Charlston area with that though... I'm a good distance from Chaleston (I'm 3 miles from GA just now)

But of all the parks I've visited. the COE's (Save for no sewer) had about the nicest sites.
Home is where I park it!

Ditto on James Island County Park. Great campground with level sites, full hook ups, free wifi, outstanding facilities (water park, hiking/biking trails, fenced dog park) and easy drive to down town Charleston.

Be sure to eat at Hyman's Seafood down town. A favorite of the locals and visitors.

An alternative is the KOA in Mt. Pleasant. We've never stayed there but folks who have say it is very nice and close to shopping, Patriot's Point and easy access via the bridge to down town.

From what we have heard, you can't beat James Island. But to provide an alternative park, Lake Aire RV Park is just off US-17 south of Charleston and takes Passport America during the week. We came in today and paid $20.35 a night for a 30 amp site with water and free wi-fi, tax included. Over the air TV via batwing is very good. It is a nice quiet place with friendly folks. We have a nice large grass pull through site and have stopped once before (we are even in the same site).
