We spent three days here only because it was conveniently located next to Francis Beidler Forest, an Audubon sanctuary and well worth a visit, but many a camper will simply turn around and leave upon first viewing this campground-with zero "curb appeal" as it is simply a treeless/shadeless open field with twelve pull through sites. We were the only guests other than two men who lived there. In a nutshell, the place reeks of neglect; grass does not appear to have been mowed in months, possibly years. True, they offer full hook ups, but no restrooms. We had to remove ticks from ourselves and our dogs after walking the premises. There is NOTHING to do in park itself, and this is worth no more than an overnight stay while in transit to some place else. Owners need to visit a few other RV parks to have a point of reference for how a campground CAN look!
Our favorite park. It's always immaculately groomed and maintained, and we don't mind those often complained about speedbumps at all (controls the riff raff population). Dog friendly and our four dogs consider it home away from home. Easy access to gorgeous Charleston and Kiawah Island: so much to do in the area. One pet peeve / complaint but it concerns guests, not the park. Although owners strive to insure folks handle and clean up after their pets, shame on those guests who repeatedly let their pre-teen and younger children walk their dogs around the campground. Ever see a young child clean up a dog's waste? That ain't gonna happen, so be reasonable parents!
A gem of a park: our best SC state park experience so far. Park is well maintained and very crowded (reserve early) but sites have enough space between them to keep one from feeling overcrowded. Beach is beautiful and access is excellent from campground. The gorgeous and very interesting Brookgreen Gardens is across the street and this alone has lured us into booking again soon. Only one caveat prevents us from giving this a perfect 10: no 50 amp service for larger rigs and in the bad summer heat in June many sites were not putting out even a full 30 amps (measured 25-27 on some days). This is not our first experience with this problem in a SC state park; the state badly needs to update its electrical infrastructure in all parks.
