This is a beach and marsh accessible park about 25 miles off the main hwy 17 about 40 miles from Charleston. It is very laid back and rustic. The bathroom building is new and in very good condition. If you don't like salty tasting water that imparts its salty flavor to your tea or coffee, bring you own drinking water or plan to bring it. Remember that is the same for ice cubes as well. Having said that, the sites in the Oaks area are fairly private. There is 50 amp available which is not at the Ocean campground--they only have 30 amp. No sites are concrete, but are fairly level. The big downfall is that the roads in and out are not being maintained AT ALL. There are potholes so big that we are hesitant to drive our rig through--it might just disappear. If you like your vehicle and rig a rockin' and a rollin' you will love this campground. It rained 2 of the 3 nights we were here and the mudholes were so deep that they held water the entire time. These roads need a lot of work. We will not come back. There are parks that are closer in to Charleston that are no more expensive and are in a lot better shape for campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park has some positive attributes, but more negatives for us. We stayed in the beach campground and not the one in the trees. The good points are the size of the sites, the proximity to the beach is close, and the utilities work well. The negatives include the really bad pot holed roads. Many holes are nearly the width of the whole road. When it rains like it did during our stay all the roads turn into a muddy mess. There is one trash bin all the way at the entry road into the park. It is quite a hike from most everywhere. The dump station for the park is not close to the park itself. It is out the front gate and down the road about 3/4 of a mile. This eliminates the ability to use a sewer tote for gray water dumping. Also the "love bugs" were swarming during our stay. While they don't bite, they are mating and are covering every surface. However the biggest drawback this park has, I was surprised that it hadn't been mentioned before. The drinking water here is literally undrinkable do to high levels of salt and minerals in the ground water. The water is bad for your appliances, and can't even be used to water plants or wash a vehicle. Bottled water is a must to stay here, and the local store sells out regularly. The citizens of Edisto voted down a Reverse Osmosis System that would have made the water usable. So if you plan to come here, bring your own drinking water. We also had difficulty driving our rig to the park due to lack of maintenance of the many overhanging trees and shrubs along highway 17 and 174. We are not looking forward to leaving and taking the same roads back out. I will not stay here again. Too many negatives for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We were not able to get a site in the beach area, so we booked a spot in the Live Oaks section. DO NOT STAY THERE!! It is an over grown brushy area that has dusty dirty ground and is a mosquito haven! Also, we were not greeted in a very friendly way. We arrived early, check-in is at 2:00 & the volunteer sent us to the boat landing to wait. After finding the landing, the volunteer there, who was super nice, asked "Why didn't she send you to the beach instead?" To which I replied, "Where is the beach?" She asked if the other volunteer gave us a map. I said no, all she gave us was the "heave-ho", get out. So, the nice girl gave us directions to the beach to wait. All this time we were hauling a 5th wheel around. Not a pleasant experience. When we finally checked in at the campsite, I suggested that she send people to the beach in the future instead of the campground and she, matter of factually replied that she was just doing what she was told. We couldn't sit outside because the mosquitoes were so thick. When we left, I felt like I had been eating dust just from folding up the patio mat. Definitely not a pleasant experience. We will never stay there again. We have stayed in a few state parks in different states and, maybe it's just us but we've found them to be less accommodating than private rv parks. We will try to avoid them in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
