Campground Reviews

The place was messy. Difficult to position 5th wheel and still reach drain and electric and water. Trash piled up around restrooms. We will not be back.

Always wondered about this KOA since it's conveniently located. Aside from the tight quarters, over-flying planes, by-passing trains and audible local traffic, the campground is clean enough and has a nice pool.

This place is a disgrace to the KOA community. There is no security. Our bikes were stolen right out from under our awning. It is a muddy mess from one into the other. I have sent in several poor surveys but nothing seems to change.

We stayed at this campground because it was right off the interstate. KOA campgrounds are nice places to stay for the weekend or how ever long u want.

Water was ankle deep in my assigned site. I asked for a different site and the clerk acted disgusted. Site I was given was not level. Wi-Fi can only be received if your close to the office. Roads are narrow!

Staff was friendly. Park is huge with a large lake with water slide for kids. Also fishing. There was a small cafe on site too.

We use this KOA each time we go to Charleston. Over 12 years, it has been my favorite, and very nice people and accomodations.

Everything was good except for the internet. The connection was spotty at best.

I stayed one very enjoyable evening in a tent site with electricity. The staff was very welcoming and informative. I had a great shower to clean up - lots of hot water. The wireless internet service was excellent. This KOA was a great place to stop on my trip!

I have never encountered a more displeasing KOA. The mattresses did not fit the bunk beds, the cabins were unclean as were the bathrooms and showers. I was forced to stay one night because I did not have another option. I will never stay here or recommend this KOA to anyone. Very unsatisfied with everything about this campground.

Ok for an older park. Little tight for a big rig with tow. Built before big rigs were made. Still would stay son lives 5 minutes awa

The worst KOA we have ever stayed at!!! Entry had bushes, limbs sticking out that scratched my coach. Way too many permanent people. Should not be considered for short term visitors. One dryer took our money and would not work!! After a rain my site was like a hog pen. Had to use rubber boots to disconnect water, elec and sewer. No where near the standards we enjoy at all other KOAs!

only stayed 2 nights and were away from the campground most of the time. The faded lit "yellow" KOA was not as easy to see as the distinctive bright yellow that other KOAs have.

Great place to stay with a Girl Scout troupe!

This was a nice KOA. The staff was all friendly and the grounds were nicely landscaped. The pool was nice and clean and do were the bathrooms.
Jun 09, 2014
The staff was accommodating in moving us to a space we would fit in, but not having an area for dogs to play and walk without being on other campsites is inconvenient. Would only stay as a last resort again.

Dog park was not very desirable.Entering on to main road from KOA was difficult.

Rates too high. Sites too bad. Roads to narrow and bad clearance. Nothing Good at all!

Park needs some sprucing up!! Also, it is among the few parks where we really don't drink the water, even filtered. We buy it. It's expensive to stay there for what it is. However, it's convenient for us.

I most likely would only stay here again if I could not get a camp site any other place. they were nice to us but the place needs a lot of tlc.

the campground needs work. you also need tv hook up. the restrooms need to be deep cleaned on regular basis. the men's rest room was nasty and has mildue in the showers.

We had a wonderful stay as always at Charleston KOA. We arrived late at night and our paperwork was taped to the door with the requested site. The campsite is quiet, peaceful and well shaded. We will be back.

Very roomy sites. Kids enjoyed the pool and playground. Close enough to get to attractions but out of the hustle and bustle of Charleston.

My son was tickled to death to stay in his first cabin and sleep in his first bunk bed. The space was clean and well kept. The mattresses didn't fit right in the bunks. But we were able to make due. The website tells you to bring your own linens but fails to mention the need to bring pillows. So we had pillow cases we stuffed with towels to make pillows. The staff was polite and helpful.

Had electrical hook problem
May 27, 2014
I told the staff about a flooding shower, it was never fix. No paper tissue, not working toilet. AC in bathrooms ok.

Located next door to a poorly kept trailer park. Noisy, unclean, and semi homeless people. The facilities had to be locked down bathrooms and laundry room to stop abuse. Not a family friendly campground. This KOA did not meet the standards we have learned to expect from KOA facilities. sorry

Just spent the night passing thru.

Bathrooms were dirty. TV reception was poor. Not a good location to restaurants, stores etc.
May 21, 2014
cabins 3 and 4 had two dogs each and they barked all time...not good if you are looking for a peaceful weekend
May 21, 2014
The bath house and restrooms were very very clean. Upon check in, we were given your location, by not taken to it. There was a huge puddle and mud hole. Upon requesting another site, we were given two location, but not taken to them. I was told to come back and let them know which one I selected. I needed a camper repair. The staff had two suggestions with recommendations on both. was

Convenient to most of Charleston's sites.

Thank you for working with us to extend our unplanned stay while I was sick! Great place and even greater staff!!!!

This KOA is good for an inexpensive overnight stay in the area. It was not the type of KOA that I would have chosen to enjoy for a longer period of time for its own sake. (I prefer more rustic settings) The tent sites are crowded and not all of them have fire rings. It is right near a busy city area. The staff was very friendly and helpful though and the bathrooms were clean and well stocked.
