Positive is the new Dog Pen; it was wonderful. It had rained the day we arrived and it was still wet/muddy after 3 days of sun. Roads are dirt and so are the sites; so basically wet/muddy the entire time we were there; 6 days. Check In Staff were very friendly/helpful

Close enough to Charleston. Sites could use some leveling and were too muddy, but other facilities were clean well maintained - the thing I expect the most for a KOA

Sites flood easily. No lighting at night. No upkeep on sites. Low inventory and selection in store. High rates. We stay because it's near to our son;the only game in town. Staff is always friendless and helpful.

This place should be closed. It is the worst koa I have ever stayed at.

12.26.14 Incredibly friendly staff! Clean bathrooms. I stayed with my dog in a cabin and the full size bed was perfect for me, but if I had more with me the bunk bed's mattresses didn't seem to fit the frames. The cabins back to the trailer park and at first I thought noise might be an issue, but it wasn't. There was nothing outstanding, but there was nothing to complain about. It met my needs.

Campground was okay but not what we had expected. This is the first time at the KOA but if they are all set up this way, we will probably not stay at another one. We're used to camping at state parks. The KOA's seem to be set up for overnight or long stay. Nothing against KOA's, just not what we're looking for when camping. Staff very nice and accommodating.

The grounds was not very clean. And,I think the rate was much higher than some nicer campgrounds we have stayed at.

Excellent staff,very friendly. I have camped at this KOA annually for the past 4 years. I just wish the spaces were crushed rock or some other materials to take car of the uneven surfaces.

Nice location with trees and a friendly staff. The highway out front is very busy but provides convenient access to all of Charleston.
Dec 11, 2014
the location was good for Charleston and the people were friendly Not a warm and friendly campsite where I wanted to sit outside . The site was next to the garbage bins and right up against an industrial area.

Good stay.

We stay at this campground usually four times a year. This particular time was during the week before Thanksgiving and it was unusually cold (in the 20's and 30's at night). There was no heat in the bathrooms. I had to go to the office and ask them to turn it on.

We love the campsite and the area in general. Except for the rain all was good as usual.

party in rec hall sat nite was too loud for a campground

Camp sites extremely narrow with too many trees and NO lighting!! Told not to move picnic table, but it was placed at the back of site, so basically unusable. Very over priced for amenities (none) Rules arbitraitaly enforced. No lighting, many unattended dogs Roads dark and rutty. Satellite unusable from trees. Very poor KOA!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy to accommodate site requests with advanced reservations. Simply call ahead to request a satellite friendly space. You are more than welcome to move your picnic table around your site, we simply ask that they not be removed FROM your site. Dogs must be on a hand-held leash when outside.

No cable TV. Non-functional Internet. No dog run, though one was apparently recently built and roped off for whatever reason. Laundry closed before we got there, opened at 8 a.m. as we left. "Pull-through" space had a big oak tree that forced me to unhook towed car to leave. Not up to the usual standards we expect from KOA, and definitely overpriced.

The KOA was full due to an OA convention but the staff and guests were very nice and the sites were very quite and restful.

I can't believe this is a KOA. There was litter all over the campground which was unkept and shabby. This was the worst KOA we have ever stayed at. The wifi did not work. There was a nice newer dog park which we did not see on the site map. This place is rundown and shows no pride of ownership by the owners. We were not taken to our site only told it was by the big tree.
Nov 19, 2014
it was a stop over on our way south. owners are great and park is clean. will stay again next year or if we are back in the area
Nov 17, 2014
We were placed right up front in the very front corner of the entrance so our experience is probably going to be much worse. There was quite a bit of traffic noise from the entrance to the campground, the trailer park next door and the highway. This included the normal diesel trucks as well as the rice burners. It was dry while we were there but I could see it being pretty muddy when it rains.

We are happy to accommodate site requests with advanced reservations. Simply call ahead to ask for a site away from the front.

A previous camper had a fire on the ground on our site and it was never cleaned up. There was a crushed can on the road near us when we arrived and still there 3 days later! Staff was nice. Overall facility pretty nice.

Thanks again for a great stay.

Not well maintained sites: dirt sites. Our site was not suited to our trailer. We had a pull through site, but had to back out because we could not pull forward without hitting tree at front of site. Cut our stay short in order to move out of this KOA.

The staff was extremely friendly and very very nice. But I did not like the location of the site. It was behind a gas station and next to full time trailer park. I was expecting a really great location and it was the complete opposite
Nov 07, 2014
Staff was great and friendly. Campground was clean

Check in went very smoothly. We were given our requested site. The staff was very friendly. The park was well maintained.

Not professional at all. No cable offered. KOA next to a mobile home park. Looks like campers live there all year. We did not feel safe.

We do not have cable--but our campground is very safe.

We weren't happy with this campground, it was not what we've come to expect from KOA. Besides being right next to a trailer park and having way to much through traffic, it was very noisy, the playground was difficult for my children to find and missing swings, the sites were very small and the trailers were shoe-horned in and the whole lot was gravel with no where for my dogs to use the bathroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our playground is located right next to the camp store with swings and slides. Pets, as per rules, may be walked thru the park and cleaned up after. Pet park coming soon

Good location. Poor facilities. Low standards and cleanliness.
