I use this park as a stop over spot on our way north and south from Florida. It is east to get to off I-95. A nice clean, paved park with immaculate rest rooms and showers. We like to drive the car over to St Simons Island and dine at Barbara Jean's Restaurant where the coconut shrimp and the crab cakes are the best.
Very nice park for visiting the Charleston area. A lot of trees could use some trimming and may make some spots tight for big rigs. We were unable to pick up satellite TV through the trees from our site but it was nice with a shaded area to park or chairs in the afternoon. We enjoyed the biking and walking trails in the park. A short drive into all that Charleston has to offer. We will come back.
The location of this park makes it very easy to tour around Hilton Head as it is near the main shopping areas and the paved bike/walking paths that cover the island. Some of the sites in the park are tight for big rigs but the staff guides you in and helps you park to avoid the many trees. Since we were there in early spring when the "live oak trees" were dropping their leaves, and there was a lot of pollen, the coach and car got messy. But, the park is very beautiful with the overhanging trees and Spanish moss. When we come back to Hilton Head we will stay here again.
One of the nicest parks we stay in. Grounds are beautiful and the lot owners keep their sites very tasteful. The people here are as friendly as we've found anywhere in our travels. A walk around the park is a real pleasure looking at all the landscaping, the river and all the well kept motor coaches.
We've been here many times and always enjoy this park. The morning newspaper is delivered to your site and one morning we were surprised to find a quart of fresh strawberries delivered to our door, very nice touch. Some sites back up to the highway and would be noisy. A couple of the interior roads are narrow and make backing in a big rig a little tight. We will come back again.
Stayed here with a promotional 3 day special and paid extra for additional days. Park is very clean with a lot of expansion in progress. I only give this park a 7 based on the value for the normal daily rate of $75. We were parked on grass and our RV left deep ruts as we parked on the soft surface. There was no picnic table, fire ring, or grill. You are given one hour per day of free internet but we never could keep it online. ATT cell service was very weak at this location. For the $75 per night price, this park didn't offer what you would expect. Will not stay here again for this price.
Stayed at this park as a Thousand Trails member. We got a beautiful site on the river (P86) but left the park early due to the electrical problems. We knew the site was a non sewer, 30amp site, but were not prepared for voltage fluctuating as low as 98 volts. Maintenance came to the site but said it was a problem when a lot of people were using power. We came back after a shopping trip to find our power off due to low voltage. We have a pet parrot and were worried about leaving and coming back to find him overheated or worse. We turned off the air, hot water heater, and refrigeration but the incoming volt still dropped below 100 volts. I finally turned the box off and used our inverter for power. I spoke with the park manager about the problem and asked what was being done about it. I was told she would not discuss the problem with the members. I think it is irresponsibly for this park not to warn people of the possible damaging low power and not do anything about it. As others report this has been a problem for many years. The park has the potential of being very nice but is getting run down instead. We found the trash bins overflowing for days at a time and smelling very bad. We value our RV and electrical equipment too much to come back until the problems a fixed and advise others to do the same. When you are paying good money for a membership members deserve better than this.
People were pleasant at check in and suggested place for hikes. Our spot on the row closest to the highway was so noisy we found it unpleasant to sit out side. The distant view of the cliffs and mountains is ruined by all the commercial junk located across the highway and around the campground. The sites and interior road are a very dusty gravel. The camper next to us had 2 large dogs he let loose and did not pick up after them, we didn't see management people speak to them about this. We will not come back to this park.
Based on the reviews we read here we tried to get a reservation on the resort side but it was full. We stayed on the "campground" side and found it very nice. We plan to come back and stay here again but for us we wouldn't spend the extra money for the resort side; we would stay on the campground side again.
Camped in a 40' RV. Campground is now run by the Navajo and they charge a $10 per night fee. Did not see any security at night. Locals come in to fill water jugs, and dogs still wander the campground. There is a dump station and you can fill your water tank. Rest rooms have flush toilets and sinks but no showers. We were on site 7 and had Verizon cell, 3G and satellite TV. Be careful of the large rocks lining the road and parking sites. Would stay here again if in the area.
Sites are narrow gravel side by side. They advertise Wi-Fi but we didn't talk to anyone able to log on; we were in site 56 with no Wi-Fi. We asked for a site that would receive satellite TV off our roof top dish but we never picked up a satellite because of trees. Cable TV was limited and poor quality, we had better luck with our over the air antenna. If you are in the row closest to the train tracks and leave the park to your left there is a hole for water drainage at the 90 degree turn and the rear wheels on big rigs will go into. In the 4 days we stayed we saw every large RV leaving drop into this hole. I told a worker they need to put a grate over this to prevent damage from the twisting that occurs when a rig puts the left rear tire into this. The worker admitted it was a bad situation. We pulled out to the left to avoid the hole. The park is clean and attractive enough but at over $40 per night not worth it. Would not stay here again, there are better parks in the area for the money.
