“cabins, camping, and rv sites”

You'll know this campground is special the minute you drive through the entrance. Azaleas, oaks and loblolly pines give a signature touch to its Lowcountry charm. Nearby, the historic Magnolia Plantation and Middleton Place feature beautiful gardens. Beat the summer heat at Whirlin' Waters Adventure Waterpark (located within North Charleston Wannamaker County Park). Attractions abound in lovely Charleston, where horse-drawn carriages clip-clop along the historic harbor. Tour Fort Sumter National Monument, where the Civil War began, and the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. Watch the skies for military/commercial planes - you might spot a Boeing 747 Dreamlifter. Bring a group - the campground has a great recreation building with a full kitchen and meeting facilities. An exciting addition is the family lodge - a fun home-away-from-home that sleeps up to eight people. Pool: March 15 - October 15. Max pull thru: 70 feet. Your host: Roger Thorpe.

This KOA is in a sketchy area. We didn't have any issues.

This is probably the worst KOA I have ever stayed in. It was basically an extension of the trailer park it backed up to. It looked like some of the RV's had not moved in 10 years. I recommend you keep your valuables on you & keep your vehicles locked. I was extremely disappointed. Definitely not up to the KOA standards I have come to expect from my experience in previous stays at KOA campgrounds

Campground has potential but need upkeep! Grass not mowed and no trimming! Flowers around but covered in weeds! Also too many sites of full timers nit keeping site up. Staff was friendly. First site we had was very narrow (C8) and picnic table was right at sewer hookup for site beside us. Staff allowed us to move. Most picnic tables were very run down except at premium sites. WiFi was not good from our site. Use AT&T and could not make a phone call. Area to dog park was blocked. Pro for the park—Furnished trash bags And picked up trash from site. Will not stay here again!

There was some good, bad, and ugly here. The good: relatively good location, friendly staff, normal KOA amenities, level sites, and abundant shade in most areas. The deluxe sites had patios, chairs, fire ring, and a swing. Wi-Fi worked OK. There were numerous doggie waste stations stocked with bags. The bad: occasional noise from planes, trains, and ambulances, aging utilities in many sites (sewers only covered by bricks, uncovered electrical panels, leaking faucets). The ugly: derelict trailers that belonged in the RV ghetto. All said, we’d probably return but not as our first choice.

Many KOAs pack in their sites so I wasn’t surprised to see these sites can be tight. In their favor, they have more than 1/2 their sites can accommodate a big rig. We stayed on a pull through site that has about 10 feet between you and your neighbor. There are some back in sites that look to have large grassy areas to the rear of the site, but the electric boxes looked older.

WIFI is excellent. They have repeaters everywhere and it was consistent enough for streaming. Amenities include a pool, basketball court, playground, and dog park. The dog park is mostly dirt. It could use some grass.

We had business in the area and the location was convenient. The campers were a mix of vacationers and contractors working in the area.

Noise wise, we had no issues with the campers, but you can hear the interstate traffic.

Overall it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. No scenery and a little far from downtown.

I’d stay again if I couldn’t find something better.

We just finished a 2 week stay here. Before arriving we read the reviews and were nervous. Some of the comments are true. Some of the sewer connections are right next to the picnic tables, overall landscaping is tired, plus their are a few questionable RV's on site.. Not really sure why this is a Holiday instead of a Journey. However the restrooms' are very clean and were cleaned daily. The staff are great, The store is nicely stocked. They do pick up your trash when placed outside. Good cable TV. Satellite TV is a bit tricky due to trees. We would stay here again if in the area and while not perfect this is not a bad campground. We camped at Charleston KOA Holiday in a Fifth Wheel.

Only good thing was its location to Charleston. Bring lots of leveling blocks.

An older park that offers a fine place to park for a bit. Park is quiet and sites are shady. There are very few deluxe / patio sites. Sites are not paved, so with heavy rain some will be virtually under water, while others fare better. Mostly sand, so be prepared for ants outside. We did not use the bathrooms, but the laundry facilities were acceptable. Cable was great, cell reception (Verizon and AT&T) was very spotty. Folks in the office were very receptive and helpful. Bottom line - I wouldn't shy away from this park if it's convenient to where you want to be for a short time, just ask for the best site you can get.
