We have camped in every state in lower 48. The koa in Larson, sc is the is in the worst one we have stayed in twenty years of camping.


We see that you have stayed with us on 10 separate occasions since 2014 and value your repeat business. Please contact us directly to let us know how we can make your next stay GREAT! We strive to give all of our campers a fantastic experience.

A great site! Weather was a bit cold to sit outside on the patio. Maybe next time!

While exiting the campground, the trees on the right side of my motorhome was rubbing and scraping along the side of my RV. The tree limbs need to be trimmed.

This is not a BIG Rig friendly place. The sites are large but trees are at the end of sites, employees and long term renters park intended cab trucks along streets and around curves. The sewage is horrid and needs to be pumped or severely cleaned. When our neighbor opened his sewage we could smell it and so could another slot so we didn't use ours. We left early.

We remain blown away with the cleanliness of the cabin and the grounds! The heater in the cabin went out and when we contacted the office it was minutes later that a worker showed up with a space heater! Everyone was pleasant and our stay was great! We are making this little place our home away from home twice a year!

last day they had a water line break.

We have a 40 foot fifth wheel and chose a pull through for ease. We were parked on an end site which was easy to get in but not so easy to get out as there was a sharp turn both ways. Other than that this park was convenient to visit Charleston and lots of golf restaurants shopping etc were nearby. The park itself was just average but no problems.

Everyone very nice & helpful from making reservations to check in, campground very clean and easily accessible. Enjoyed our stay

Well I must say the kabin was clean and comfy and the bathrooms were clean but the location of the whole campground was less than desirable. Traffic was terrible and the vehicular noise until late in the evening was very disturbing. Another very annoying aspect was a large oak tree directly above my cabin that dropped acorns about every 10 minutes onto the tin roof and sounded like a 22 going off

Office staff was friendly and helpful. Site was roomy enough for our 5th wheel and truck. Some road and plane noise, but not disruptive.

Management allowed the person parked ahead of us to park way over into our spot so we were unable to use our table or even extend our awning. Location not convenient for exploring Historic Charleston. Lots of long term campers and their stuff. We did get a great restaurant recommendation.

We have always enjoyed staying at this KOA. The facilities are very good and the staff is always extremely friendly and helpful.


We look forward to your return!

Dog Park had ropes blocking access the 2 times I checked it. When I was leaving, I saw that it had been opened. I wasn't happy. Looks like there were assigned hours - but no signs or communication. Otherwise it was OK, although sites were very small and close together. Glad I was only staying overnight.


We are sorry that you missed the path, which is just to the left of the cable. The cable prevents driving through maintenance access. The dog park path is marked by a yellow sign. We have checked for sight line obstructions and find it clear. Park hours are listed on the dog park fence..dawn to dusk

Just a quick 2 day stop. Easy access to historic Charleston. People friendly. A lot of full time units parked there that were not very nice looking. Mostly in back section. If your RV is large and your trailer long it is a VERY tight turn to get out. Had to get help from neighbors as car on the way would not answer door to move it. Use caution. Otherwise smaller RVs ok.

Total lack of communication. In short an unpleasant stay, with no access to the restroom facilities. Clueless undereducated staff. Two thumbs down.


Restroom access and information is attached to your campground map that is given to you when you check in. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and hope you will try us again.

Staff very friendly and they work very hard to keep it clean and looking good. Quite a bit of traffic on Rt 78 and a bit noisy

Friendly and helpful staff. Had all the amenities we needed. The wifi isn't the greatest.

The campground is fine and the operators are super nice. They do a lot with what they have to work with.
Nov 28, 2016
Like the changes you're making to the park. Neat and clean. Your personnel are very friendly and helpful.

Feels a little sketchy at this KOA. The previous time we camped there, we could smell the marijuana being smoked in nearby sites. This trip included visits from (apparently)homeless kids who told us about their dog being killed on the property. I don't feel very safe staying there.


We do not have any record of the incident you describe. Please contact us with more info on where you encountered these homeless children. If there is a family in need, we can get them in touch with an assistance program

It appears that they are trying to improve this campground. The concrete sites are worth the extra charge. Nice pool area an showers are decent, need better water pressure. Old mobile park next door. Looks like people living year round. Good for one or two night stay. Train runs at 3 and 6am.

This KOA is locating next door to a trailer park and it seems like it has poured over into the campground. There were several permant residence. Didn't feel like camping. There was lots of noise from sirens, planes, trains and dump trucks at all hours. Also only one bathhouse for the whole campground and no fire rings for campfires.

Good stay! Would stay again if need to be in no. Charleston atea.

The WiFi is nonexistent. We were 4 spaces down from office and could not connected to when the signal was available-ever. Many times the signal never even showed as a nearby signal. Otherwise, a great place and only place near Summerville/Charleston.


We are glad you enjoyed your stay and are working hard to improve our Wi-Fi availability. We thank you for your understanding as we trace issues remaining from Hurricane Matthew and replace key parts of our Wi-Fi system. We look forward to your future visits!

We were infested with roaches in the cabin we rented for the night, and we were told they had wi fi, and it had been oit for several days already. I would never stay there againand was still charged for the cabin


We always strive for excellence and definitely fell short! We have made every effort to remedy the situation, but credit card processing sometimes takes several days and is beyond our control. Please call us direct so that we can be sure everything processed correctly.

Staff friendly and helpful. Our site was great! Concrete Pad, picnic table, swing. We will definitely stay here again!

Campsite was muddy, had leaves and straw. No lights - very dark at night when walking pets
Nov 18, 2016
I t was the last KOA that I will stay another night. The camp sight was very bad. There were no lights and could not see at night. Just bad.
Nov 18, 2016
Campground was average, with pleasant polite staff and was clean. Wifi didn't work at all,even right beside the office. We were given a helpline number to deal with the problem. I don't think fixing poor campsite amenities should be my responsibility. Showers were clean, but old and worn out. Overall, a little below average for KOA standards.
Nov 16, 2016
Bathrooms need updated. The staff was very nice and helpful. There was a very cool old family grave yard near by. Quite nice, actually.
Nov 14, 2016
Very good customer service, OK parking spots, many things are getting a little "old", just look around at picnic tables, rec center, etc. But, nice and clean.
Nov 14, 2016
Good stay. No issues. WIFI was a little poor however didnt really require it. Let us check in earlier which was a plus for us.
Nov 14, 2016
Great stay
Nov 12, 2016
Great people at checking, very helpful. Wonderful campground. Only problem was lack of wifi. Seems their wifi wasn't robust enough to handle the large number of people staying in the campground that night. They really need to upgrade their wifi.
Nov 10, 2016
Enjoyed my stay here. Bathrooms clean. Staff friendly.
Nov 09, 2016
We loved our deluxe site with the concrete pad, furniture and gas grill. Well worth the extra costs per night!
Nov 08, 2016
We went to Charleston to celebrate our 8th anniversary. We chose KOA for its affordability. The location was close to everything. We rented the couples cabin. It was very nice and cozy. The amenities were nice and clean.

Work on wifi

Wifi reception needs to improve.

Host were more than understanding, and everybody was very pleasant and helpful, will return there very soon. Gary

Security should be driving a marked car. It was an eerie feeling to not know they were security while circling and parking oitside of our cabin . The most expensive cabin should not be in the busiest part of the campground . We were awakened very early every morning due to kids playing and traffic from check ins and outs . A staff memeber was very rude . Overall stay was ok .

Sites are in trees so you cannot use a dish. Cable is basic and SD. Does not include any sports channels. The Internet is wonky. It is up and down, knocking you off in the middle of a project. Very slow when you do connect.
Oct 30, 2016
A bit out dated and very tight for big rigs. People friendly and premises clean. Tight driveway and the trees rubbed the side and roof when leaving.
Oct 29, 2016
KOA was adjacent to a Mobile Home Park. Friendly staff, poor wifi, open air laundry and people washing dog blankets in the laundry. Bathrooms a little tired. Not the best KOA we have stayed in.
