Cabin Reviews

Overall a very nice campground. The sites were slightly dirty (old cigarette butts) but besides that they were fine. The bathrooms were overall clean but upon close inspection they could of been cleaner (moldy in between tiles). The campground is also right up against a trailer park and we were out right behind this trailer that had 2 of the most annoying dog ever and they would just go on and on.

the campgrounds were fine.. although we LOVE KOA and have been to other sites in the past ..this one was less attractive and less kid friendly. Not much to do within the grounds, but overall it worked out well. Charleston is beautiful though.

I've camped in 17 different states, including many KOA campgrounds,and this was by far one of the worst campgrounds I have ever seen. I refused to stay and received a refund.

Children were bitten in the cabin and had to go to Urgent Care


Exterminator was called out and could find no evidence of insects of any kind in this cabin. We do carry insect repellent with DEET in our store to protect campers from most of the southeast's biting insects.

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.

We booked our cabin online but before we did we called and talked to some and they said it was $57 and a $50 deposit to book it. We asked so when we get there we will only have to pay the $7 difference and they said that right. So we book it for $50 and when we get there they want the whole $57 and said they would refund the $50.We didn't have gas $ to get home because it hasn't gone back on card


All employees are very clear about the deposit policy and are sure to relay the information to callers.

Not clean. Grass not cut. If KOA allows permanent occupants they should keep all their belongs inside & not piled up on the front porch. There was also a bucket near back of cabin with dirty dishes in it.

Rustic cabin damp, moldy, bad smell, blinds in cabin in poor condition . restrooms needed attention.. Had stayed there last October and it appeared no upkeep since that time..

Wifi, you wish. Doesn't reach most of the grounds apparently. Also, the quite hours aren't enforced. Forget asking the emergency manager to help deal with an issue because they will just brush you off and hang up the phone in your ear.

Not what I expected, but the staff were friendly and helpful. Park was a bit on the dirty side, but generally quiet.

Had a wonderful stay. The cabin was exactly what I needed and the park was great!

Location of the cabin close to the highway, together with the lack of entrance checking, made me feel a bit uncomfortable. It also caused pretty much cars and people to pass, which did not contribute to the quietness. I had the feeling that a lot of people were walking around without staying on the campsite. Cabin was good!

Nice pool, very clean. Area attractions were closer than we first thought. Quiet and staff were very nice.

There needs to have a stool at the table in the cabins also laundry open 24/7.

The people who work here are very helpful and sweet. This campground while looking very nice at first glance needs a lot of maintenance.

Excellent staff and excellent atmosphere.

the staff was friendly, and to be honest I did not complain directly to anyone while we were there, but the site was dirty,trash by our cabin was dirty at arrival, there was onion peels on the floor, throughout the site garbage was everywhere. I picked up a large amount of trash around our site. The mattress did not fit on our bunk bed. The ceiling fan needs repair. The bathroom floor was dirty

The property itself was fine but nothing scenic about it. The pool has a gas station literally on the other side of the fence. Men's showers were ok but the bathroom floor was dirty, one toilet was backed up/out of service most of the trip, and toilet paper dispensers were empty.

Spent most of my time watching people come steal stuff from my cabin and others. When told staff they didnt seem very concerned.
Jul 14, 2014
Everything was good except I informed the front desk of a wasp nest on our porch. They said it was carpenter bees that won't sting but they would come look. They never came. I had 2 kids there and didn't like the fact they never came to do something about the bees. Also not as many activities as some other koa campgrounds we visited.

Worst koa experience ever!
Jul 06, 2014
Had cabin 1 over night. Not thrilled about the location of the cabin or koa as it feels like we are in a parking lot. Only 1 bathroom for entire facility and it did not feel safe there was no gated entrance or exit. Wifi did not work.

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

Great campground the staff and pool area were exceptional

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.

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.

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.

cabins 3 and 4 had two dogs each and they barked all time...not good if you are looking for a peaceful weekend

Every pretty cabins. Loved staying there. The trailer park right beside it was not so hot.

It was friendly and felt like a little neighborhood. We had very friendly neighbors we hope to come back.

There was a bee problem in the cabin area,but it looked like they were spraying the empty cabins before we left. Broken blinds in cabins,musty smell,and windows held closed by wood blocks. One morning no toilet paper in bathroom,but thankfully office was open&immediately fixed the problem. Pool looked nice.

I enjoyed my stay. The staff was friendly. The cabin was clean. My stay at the KOA campground was a wonderful accent to my trip to Charleston SC.
