We will likely stay again later this year on our return trip south. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the campgrounds were clean and well maintained. I had to call and change my reservation twice due to changes in travel plans. Very efficient with the changes emailed to me with a new reservation confirmation numbers.

I was under the impression that this was a 2 week maximum stay campground. They had campers that look to have been there for years!

I certainly didn't expect it to be in a trailer park, but that's not even the bad part. When we walked in the cabin, it REAKED of cigarette smoke. I'm allergic, so that's a problem. Not to mention we had a 2 year old with us. That's not just gross, but dangereous. They also don't enforce rules there. We were up at 3 am because neighbors were SO loud. This went on our entire stay.

It was safe for the most of our stay it was quit. The road traffic by the camp was noisy. The rocks in our camp site put holes in our tent floor. The employees in the office was very friendly. Grounds men could be more friendly. Camp ground close to everything.

Perfect. But expensive for a small RV

Very friendly staff, close to Charleston for day trips! Some areas of the campground need updating, no 110 electric at some of the tent sites, showers in men's bathroom, for example. However, maintenance was going on while we were there, so maybe those and other issues will be addressed through the summer.

Noisy, parking lot crammed in sites. Staff was nice. Monthly sites were a disgrace. Campers were run down and should have been moved off sites years ago.
May 26, 2015
nice and shady tent site, friendly staff, some trash on the site was the only negative
May 26, 2015
Very easy online reservations. Staff friendly and helpful. Campsites a little close to each other.

This was one of the worst KOA's I have stayed at. There was no kitchen and there was a lot of inconsistencies in the rules. We were told no tents or dogs in cabins which we complied with. Then the cabin next to us popped a tent and the one across from us had 2 dogs. Then when we were at the pool which does not have enough chairs we were told to limit how many we used and carleen was very rude

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only have 4 pet friendly cabins which were previously booked. Our rules are very clear and apply to all campers-even when we are polite and add the word "please" to a rule-it is still a rule.

We've been staying at this campsite for 10 years, and sadly, not much has changed. There seems to be quite a bit of room for improvement. However, being the sentimental romantacists that we are, we'll probably continue to stay there. It's the first place we camped out together.

This KOA needs a lot of work done. The laundry room was dirty half the washers and dryers were out of order. The drainage is so bad we had a lake on our site. Some camper seem to be full timers and they do what they want junk tires and cars parts on their sites the campers are so old they wouldn't be able move them if they wanted to. The water had a strong musty smell. The dog run was real nice.

I would not recommend this campground to my enemy. First off it is in a bad area. Secondly it had very little appeal, the grass was not cut, the sites were small, we were put in a site that was supposed to be a pull through but then we had to back up our camper in order to get out because of the trees and narrow roads. The game room consist of a pool table and a TV.

Not as nice as other Koas - there was work going on to make improvements- we had a druggie knocking on our door at 1am looking for money . Not in a great location-we have stayed at 3 different koas since our visit at Ladson - their parks showed more upkeep nicely graveled or even cemented pads -

Well kept, quiet park.

I was delighted by the campground. Staff was super-friendly. Camp store stocked and very reasonable. This was my first koa experience and I'll definitely do it again!
May 17, 2015
We felt the cabins were too close to the neighboring homes. We could latterly see into the homes from our cabin. Not our idea of camping area. The ability to enter the park was terrible! It took us 15 minutes to pull in from the main road.

My wife and I and 2 other couples stayed at this KOA a few years ago and for various reasons agreed we would never stay here again. Because of a funeral, we needed a last minute place to stay and came back to this KOA. Showers that don't drain, sinks that don't drain, musty odors, run down looking buildings... We won't be back.

Our 9th year staying here and will be back later this month.

Facility was okay, amenities good. Dogs welcome! Downside was location. Tent sites are small, no privacy at all. Needs more bushes between sites. Also we were right next to a used car lot that had bright lights on all night. Major road is very close by so there was a lot of traffic noise. A sound barrier wall or dense row of tall upright evergreen shrubs would be helpful.

To their credit they have installed a cable system and a wi-fi access which is simply a joke. Very poor access with amp stations not even hard-wired and frequently unplugged by other campers. Installing the cable system left the grounds in even worse condition than before, and rain left it a quagmire. I have stayed there for convenience on many occasions, but this will be my last stay. HORRIBLE!
May 12, 2015
Needs a little fixing up.
May 12, 2015
I really enjoyed my stay there but, I wish it were a little closer to downtown Charleston. The personnel were all friendly. This wasn't my first stay there and it was nice to see that they were, and had made, since my last stay many years ago, improvements to make the overall appearance more pleasing.

A lot of rain during the weekend, our spot did not drain too well. Cable reception was not very good. WiFi reception was great. The feature of campside garbage pickup a definite plus.

We are from the Charleston area (Now living in Columbia) and love visiting our old "haunts). We have been gone from Charleston for over 30 years and still love staying at your KOA.
May 10, 2015
Everything was nice exept for some of the lots hold rain water for days and is very muddy
May 10, 2015
We don't use any of the "amenities" so we seldom stay at KOA. This one was close to friends we wanted to visit, so we picked KOA this time. We usually don't want to spend the extra money for KOA.

Love this park. Friendly people, clean great for kids and pets.

This is a great little campground, it's quiet and clean but not secure, which when you're not from the area is a little unnerving. We couldn't find firewood, anywhere but made do with what we had. The islands in the road are pretty, but make it a little hard to maneuver around. We would definitely use this campground again, though. The woman at the desk was friendly, too!

We sell firewood at the camp store. Please ask during your next stay.

Just stayed overnight. Worked out well for us.

The camp-sites are well taken care of and the pool was great. Miss Paula at the office has that low country charm that we all love. I wish I could have stayed longer! Thanks DB

Location not very well maintained. A lot of permanent dwellers it seems. Staff were very nice and do the best with what they have. Washroom shower facilities poor. Noisy - street noise, train, planes in/out of airport. It is however a good location to get to Charleston from.
May 02, 2015
Well maintained and well run Campground.

I really enjoyed my stay. The campground has a lot of nice amenities. I just moved to the area would have liked to stay longer while I looked for places to live but at $265 a week while waiting for a monthly site to open was just to much.
