Posted a review mid-2013 and wanted to repost. This is a wonderful campground! It is clear that much of the $ they take in goes back into improvements. Sites (which are all long, wide pull-throughs with picnic table, fire rings and most with charcoal grills) have been filled with more stone to eliminate mud in all but the worst rain. New walking trails have been added. The pool's filter has been upgraded. A new camp store (really will be useful with stores being so far away) will open soon and new sites are being planned for next camping season. Cannot say enough about the owners and their staff. A camp host not only escorts you to your site but also volunteers to help in the set up process. Owners stop by several times a weekend just to make sure all is well (not like some who seem to be spying on campers!). BTW, the wine tasting is great fun and the wines, well, we bought a half case! Would not strongly recommend for a family, but adults will greatly enjoy the generous nature in which this campground is run. Husband said at least twice this weekend : "This is our new 'go to place'! BTW, we had no problems at all with our cell phone reception (Verizon) and free Wi-Fi was available at our site - we were as far from the office/store as possible!!
Think this is the best State park CG in SC: and that's a huge compliment! Not sure why the previous post had problems with overhanging limbs: we have a large MH and have never come close to any. The causeway leading to the CG is more than wide enough for two vehicles to pass safely: assuming each takes his half of the road out of the side and not the middle!! Sites are level, some heavily shaded, some with very few trees. Sites in the middle of the CG are best for satellite TV access. The walk to the ocean is quite a distance, even though this CG is on the ocean side of the highway with no other roads to cross. The staff is very courteous and helpful: even when challenged when the CG is full, which it is every weekend Spring - Fall!! Most of us who use this CG love it. Sites are not cramped for space and the facilities are always kept clean. Only thing missing is a playground for the kids!! We return as often as possible and just made our reservations for next year. Do it ASAP because this CG fills up FAST!!!
It is difficult to give this place a number rating because it is wonderful for what it it - but definitely not a resort of any kind. The "8" is used based on the type of campground it is - a small, charming, very welcoming place with enough quality amenities to make it worth your while. Passport America and Good Sam BOTH accepted! Spent a very nice weekend here, about 20 miles from the Grand Strand around Myrtle Beach SC. It is a small place with larger than usual campsites, all full hookups with both dirt and gravel sites. Each has 50/30 amp service, optional cable TV ($) with some sites perfectly situated for satellite access. Sites were not assigned as we were told simply to choose the one we liked best. A great feature - when they are not crowded or expecting numerous campers - no assigned check in or out times! Stay until you're ready to leave! Quiet is the best way to describe the park. Nice new, very, very clean pool. Small playground (although the owners said they are catering to those who want "peace and relaxation" above family groups) and very clean, very private restroom facilities (not really a 'bath house' - in the ladies room, two separate toilet rooms with a very large single and very private shower room. The men's room is the same. Campground is part of a property that includes a winery that is as 'laid back' and welcoming as the campground. It is secluded and, in my honest opinion (IMHO), would be nice for a snowbird couple looking to be away from the hustle and bustle of the MB area. Also, very nice for a simple getaway weekend. The owners could not have been more accommodating or pleasant. Check it out if you're in the area. Not easy to find, really "off the beaten path" but well worth the search.
This review pertains mostly to the beach campground (there are two that are part of this state park). Large sites, many with adequate shade. Mostly level or near level sites. Heavy rains makes a few sites very, very muddy and wet (this is the low country of SC!) but most are elevated enough so that is not a big problem. Campground roads are not paved and maintaining them is an ongoing problem. Ranger station is located at entrance to Live Oaks part of the park where one must register and then through it to reach Beach campground. Sites in Live Oaks section seemed smaller and tighter than those closer to the ocean. Entrance road to register is HORRIBLE and really needs to be paved. There is a grocery store right across the street from the Beach campground and hardware store in nearby. Not much to do if one is not into the ocean in Edisto Beach, but found 2 small restaurants with good food (McConkeys and The Sea Cow). McConkeys is right behind grocery store and within walking distance of the campground. Great Shrimp Burgers!!! Rating reflects how this compares to other similar parks (as in State Parks without all the frills). For what it is, an excellent choice.
Just returned from a week visiting the area. Enjoyed our stay so much we extended it 2 nights. Very clean, comfortable bathhouse. Our site was very shaded with concrete slab for RV and concrete patio w/picnic table. Very easy hookups w/free wifi that worked well and good selection of channels on free cable tv. Sites were all level and many were pull thru. Location was about 6 miles n/e of Williamsburg but the quiet location was welcome. Very close to grocery and other stores. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Have stayed in other CGs in area and find this one to definitely be the most accommodating, roomiest and most pleasant. Will definitely return.
As always, the rating here is based on the fact that this is a state park, not an "RV Resort"! Many Huge sites - although most pull through sites in the rear part of the CG are smaller. This area allows for horses. Only negative about this CG is the small, older bathhouse. It is very clean but only 2 showers and 3 stalls for the entire place. Water pressure was great and plenty of hot water. A pet peeve is when there is no privacy after stepping out of shower for dressing - like other places this one is guilty! Sites are level and sandy. The Park Ranger was incredibly helpful and friendly. Nothing to do in the area at all, but the CG is wonderful!
Great park. Very clean bathhouses (cleaned at least twice a day while we were here). Roomy sites, particularly for the Myrtle Beach area: much more room than the ocean-front campgrounds. All sites were level that we saw and huge shade trees made them comfortable even when it was over 85' outside. Roads are paved, and each person is escorted to their site and assisted if desired, with placing rig on site. Campground is within comfortable walking distance of the ocean, along with CVS, and several restaurants. 2 very clean pools, along with 'baby pool', as well as a water 'splash' area that was great fun for us and our 18 month old grandson! Many scheduled activities during weekends in the Spring, more during the weekdays in the Summer. We have been here several times, and its obvious money has been spent to maintain a nice CG.
Liked the park. Pros: very friendly staff and permanent campers were wonderful; Fabulous pool overlooking a great lake; well stocked camp store; boat launch available in CG; gravel roads limited dust and mud; gravel sites; most sites large enough for any rig w/awning and slides; very clean and modern bathhouses Cons: Cell phones did not work (almost no one's did from any server). No cable TV and local antenna access was poor. Sites hard to level rig. Speed bumps on access road are nasty. Sites not big rig friendly. Rental trailers are very old and small. Overall would stay there again if in the area. Location, location, location. CG is right on the lake and the view from our site was fabulous (we had first site right by the camp store, overlooking the pool and the lake). The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful in every way.
First, must say we liked the campground. Sites were mostly level and gravel. They were a bit narrow, and not really deep. Two big rigs back to back is a real problem. Only a few pull thrus available. Big rig friendly, but not in all sites, for sure. New, big bathhouse and very nice pool. Camp store has very limited inventory, but Wal-Mart is very close. Staff is friendly and very attentive without being intrusive. Wi-Fi works well, even in the back of the campground, and I included in site fee. Ditto cable TV. Satellite TV might be a problem in some sites. CG is south of Asheville in a quiet area, but close enough to make it convenient to everything. Biggest problem is finding the CG. Road signs are difficult to find and the last turn off of Airport Road is difficult to find (remember, it's between the Sonic and IHOP!) Lake is definitely man-made, small and though there are rumors of fish, none were caught the week we were there! If sites were larger grade would be higher. We would not hesitate to return.
We stayed here for the reenactment. It is a great location for that, in fact, very good location for everything in the area. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Pros: The staff; nice pool; level,gravel sites for pull through sites (and throughout the campground for that matter); clean restrooms; nice playground and rec hall;well stocked camp store with breakfast and lunch available (also ice cream parlor); holiday weekend (4th of July) many well designed activities for all ages; very pet friendly CONS: tight sites everywhere. Most sites are heavily wooded, many at odd angles; pull through sites back-to-back = very, very close to neighbor on the back side of rig, but sufficient room on the front - you could be facing a nasty neighbor! clean restrooms, but insufficient # of showers for such a large campground; pull thru sites have no shade; wooded sites useless for satellite tv; very, very limited cable stations (only 16!) for an extra fee. Overall, a decent campground made better by the quality of the staff and friendliness of the seasonal campers.
It is really great for an overnight stop. It is very close to I95, but we did not notice road noise with windows closed and air conditioning on. Clean restrooms. There are very limited items in the camp store. The sites are level, gravel and, wide enough for slides and awning. The staff is friendly. Easy entry and exit. It was rained like heck with high winds while we were there - roads and sites drained very well. It is a great stop over while traveling either north or south on 95.
We're in site # 8 - a long, level pull thru with enough room for awning, slide out and 10x10 screen house - fire ring and picnic table also have their own spots outside awning or screen house. Pull thrus throughout the cg - very big rig friendly. Nice playground with sand base (swings, slide, etc) for the little ones. Very clean swimming pool with screened in room adjacent (several large picnic tables and ping pong. This room has separate space with 3 2 burner stoves, convection and microwave oven, double sink and slop sink. Lake on site has fishing (catch and release only). CG has good cable tv and good wifi in most sites. Bathhouse is very clean with 6 separate shower rooms. Staff is very friendly and incredibly efficient. Our picnic table broke and there was a new one on our site within 30 minutes. Also had problem with cable TV - resolved in an hour. Located very close to Wally World (in a center with several restaurants, fast food joints, and other stores). Publix food store within 1 mile as well. Charleston is about 10 miles south - easy to get to. We have no complaints about this campground. We'll definitely return when in the Charleston area.
Really enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving holiday. Office was closed when we arrived, but our info. was readily available and we easily found our site. It was a long, level pull thru with plenty of space between rigs. Went up to pay next morning and found free coffee and donuts. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. WiFi worked very well (it was fast too), and we weren't right up by the store.(site #3). Bathhouse was spotless and individual shower rooms a real plus. Limited activities, as it was late fall but large area called Blackbeard's Cove right near the entrance to the campground more than enough to entertain children and teenagers. Very, very close to WalMart and Lowe's shopping center - can be accessed without going out onto Rt. 17. One suggestion: Turning left from Rt 17 into the campground can be tough. If coming from the north, turn left at light before the campground (new bank on one side, large subdivision on the other). Either that or go past the campground and turn into WalMart parking lot, go to the rear of the lot where new road is. Turn left there and you'll find the campground within 1/2 mile on your left. Would recommend a stay here anytime. Good location north of Charleston. Also recommend 2 places to eat. Gilligans, in place called Seaside Farms or Sewee Restaurant. Ask in office for directions to both.
A very nice state park. We have been there 2 of the last 3 weekends and plan to return again. Yes, the roads are being paved. We saw the paving equipment in place and it was due to start Monday, Nov. 19th. Thank God because the potholes were beginning to swallow the campers! Comments by so many are very true. Many are large enough for even the biggest rig. Most have limited shade, but those in the highest numbers (101 - 133) are very wooded and afford much privacy. Bathhouse in that area was clean and the showers were great. Very limited stock in camp store during this time of year, but have been there when campground was packed and it had everything. Would not hesitate to recommend Huntington Beach to anyone.
Park is ony 5 years old and very ready for any sized rig. Very friendly owners and employees. Very nice shower rooms. Roads aren't paved and would be dusty in dry weather but office said plans are to pave the roads within the year. Speed bumps entering the park not difficult to deal with. Most all sites are pull thru (except those along the stream) and larger than many campgrounds. Some even offer 100 amp electrical service! Cable TV has only about 25 stations, but price is included in site fee. Pool may be a bit small if campground is full. We enjoyed a get away weekend even if it did storm one of the nights we were there. This proved the drainage system worked rather well! Only real negative was the poorly stocked camp store. We camped in April, certainly not slack time, but there was very little to find there-very limited RV supplies, almost no food stuffs, etc. This is one problem that could be easily corrected as there is definitely space for more. Easy access from Rt 17 and close enough to the beaches. There is even a nice local winery only about 4 miles away!
The rating is a bit high, but when looking at this campground for what it really is, a short-stop to rest while going to a long-term destination, it is very good. Full hook ups (no cable TV, but not really necessary), decent interior roads and easy pull-thru sites make this an easy place to get into and out of. Most sites big enough for big rigs. Don't know why the previous camper had so many problems. We have a 31' TT pulled by a Ford F350 with a combined length of over 50'. We had no problems at all. What makes this campground better than many for its best use is the easy access of what many campers want when 'on their way'. South of the Border has several restaurants, from a family, inexpensive, basic food type to a decent steak house. Pretty much anything you would like to buy, and overpay for, is there too. Choices of gasoline brands, bathing suits, groceries, fireworks, everything is there. What might be best, though, is the indoor pool located in the main registration building for the motel. The campground has a small outdoor pool, but our stay in October was past its time for use. We asked at the campground office when we registered and they told us we could just walk across to the indoor pool. It was clean, large and very, very relaxing. There is even a bar at the pool for a quick drink. A great way to unwind after driving almost 10 hours! Only suggestion I would make is to develop WiFi or modem access for so many of us with computer needs. The staff at is friendly, knowledgable and seem to work hard enough so it was clean. Impressive for a place so busy. The campground is not a place to stay for a week, but as a stop over it is wonderful. Thanks Pedro for thinking of us RVers. It's appreciated.
This campground is convenient for those who need a stopover place as it is directly off Rt 17 near the military bases in Jacksonville. The manager is friendly and helpful. We got our rig set up and went to turn on our AC and found that the electricity at our site was not working. The manager immediately came and fixed the problem in minutes. The camp store is small but well stocked with a variety of RV supplies and LP Gas. The rest rooms are limited to a single powder room for each gender and one separate shower for each, but the laundry had 5 washers and 6 dryers. Go figure. They were clean and neat but not air conditioned. We were there during a very hot spell and the fact that there is no pool made it seem hotter. There was, in fact, very little to do in the campground. There is, however, a recreation area with mini golf, a driving range and batting cages less than 1/2 mile away. Their ads claim there is freshwater fishing and a stream at the campground but we never found it. Their rental cabins/cottage were modern and air conditioned. Their pull-thru sites could accommodate almost any sized big rig. This campground is fine as a place to park your rig while you are busy doing something else or visiting a friend, but it is definitely not a destination in and of itself. There is a small strip mall only about 2 miles north of the campground that has a Food Lion and pizza place, along with a few other small stores. Cabin Creek is south of the city of Jacksonville, near Camp Geiger and a naval air base. The sounds of helicopters, artillery fire and machine guns are often heard at the campground. This could be disconcerting for some. We stayed here while visiting a friend who lives in the area. We'll stay here again for the same reason.
We planned on making this just an overnight stop on our way to Myrtle Beach but stayed 3 days. Our pull-thru site was wide and level and centrally located. There was one tree that the manager in the office claimed was the largest in the campground, but it offered no shade at all. In fact, there appears to be very, very little shade available in most of the transient sites. It was incredibly hot, but the pool was clean and refreshing. The camp store was very clean and there was a nice game room, but they certainly could increase their inventory. There was very little in the way of RV products available and only the most limited food stuffs. There certainly is room for more. The campground's restrooms and shower facilities are absolutely first rate in every way - very, very clean and modern, even air conditioned. We almost never shower outside of our trailer but we did here. What was most impressive was the friendliness of both the campers and the staff, particularly the young woman who was the manager. There are many permanent campers here. Those we met were open and friendly. Many got around on their golf carts. We picked this campground out of our campground directory simply because it was on our way home and we are very, very glad we did.
We just returned from our first visit to this area. We were told by seasonals that there was new ownership and a number of changes have taken place. One that affected our plans was the end of shuttle service to the casinos. We decided not to do AC after we found out we would have to drive our motorhome to the casino. There is no public transportation to AC except by very expensive taxi. Some kids at the pool complained that there wasn't a diving board anymore (the pool guy said it had to do with the insurance company's rules). The people in the office were pleasant and helpful. The cafe had really good food, reasonably priced. Our pull-thru site in the 'field' was long enough and wide enough for our 40' rig with 3 slides. The bathhouse was clean. The pool is large and very clean. No lifeguard on duty, but an adult 'pool monitor' who checked the chemicals so often it became a joke to us. Nice hot tub only for adults. There seems to be a number of planned activities for all age groups as well as dances most weekends. It looked like everyone was very busy cleaning up everywhere and everything. New owners, new attitude, I guess. The biggest negative is the campgrounds roads. They are dirt (manager said the state won't let them be paved - something about pinelands rules) and badly rutted. Better drive very slowly or you'll need a chiropractor! We'll stay here again if you come back to the area, as long as we don't plan to gamble.
Have camped here for many years and have always thoroughly enjoyed our visits. While there last week we were told that this campground has just been sold by the family who operated it for over 30 years. The buyers are a corporation that owns a number of other campgrounds along the East Coast. Don't know what changes may come as a result of this change in ownership. One of the things that always made Blueberry Hill one of our favorite CGs was the personal attention paid to each camper by the previous owners. There is a couple now who are the CG Managers who live in the campground. We were told that all of the former employees will be retained (that's both good and bad!!). We'll have to see if any major changes take place.
