Cabin Reviews

Hundreds of bees sworming cabins. Had to leave and not return until 8pm when bees went in at dark. Weeds everywhere, dirty and showers had low water power especially if someone else was showering at the same time. This KOA can really hurt the KOA name as it is a DUMP!!!

Have ALWAYS stayed at koa and been pleased.....not here. Staff not friendly at all! No kitchenette. Facilities ONLY AVAILABLE DURING STORES HOURS!!!!! Ridiculous. After 8 pm til 8am can't get in pool can't wash clothes. On vacation u gone all day enjoying planned activities, most people do their bathing and laundry late evening for next day. First koa visit not pleased in over 20 years!

The staff was very friendly and overall the campground was clean. The only issue we had with this one is the location. It is directly beside a trailer park with people walking through the campground at different times of the day. It just did not feel like a safe location for a family. I love KOA's and my wife and I stay at them often but this one did not meet the standards of other KOA's.

The cabin was clean. However the front of the campground was nice the back was like a old trailer park. Trailer that haven't move in ten years and dogs chained up in the yards. Also a homeless person was in the shower one night for hours.

The people here are always friendly. They are always ready to help you in getting you settled in. I have seen it where an elderly couple had a problem setting up their RV and they helped them. The only thing that we do not like is when they take care of the restrooms. They wash down everything with a hose and cleaner but never wipe off the toilet seats and the floor is always very wet.

Lodge amenities were minimal compared to other like KOA facilities we stayed at. Staff was very helpful.

Everything was basically ok,except for a ceiling fan covered in dust so we didn't use it. Also, there was a lot of dust on the interior logs of the cabin. I was never asked by the Kampground personnel how my stay was, if I had any issues, or inviting me to return.

Clean Quiet Considerate. Great place to stay! We had an issue with our cabin reported it the next morning and they gave us the KOA "Hilton" we didn't expect this but we greatly appreciated it. Clean Bathhouse, great staff! Will stay again and have already recommended it to some friends.

Bed bugs in one cabin, So they moved us. And they was supposed to fumigate the infested one. Buy other than that, it was fine

We were in the area working nights, 12 hour shifts. The campground was so nice and peaceful we were able to get the sleep during the day without interruption. Facilities were clean, staff was friendly. Couldn't ask for more.

They didn't have anything for the children like music or dancing. This place also had a lot of live in campers. Not a safe place.

Great place to stay. We really enjoyed the cabin.

The cabin was nice, cute and clean. However, there was hardly any yard and nothing to do at this campground. Next time I will probably look for a KOA with more activities.

Convenient for our weekend in Charleston. And we used our VKR Appreciation "free" day!

this is the first time we rented the lodge here...we have rented one room cabin and kottage previously....the best one so far is the kottage...the lodge had tv but could not watch even the local channels and had no stove to cook on....the tv could use an air tv antenna and for cooking they could at least provide a hot plate...not impressed for the amount of money for rental...

Friendly employees. Nice place.

it was close to what we wanted to do . and thankfully the air condition worked. the worst part was how hot the temp. was.

Seemed like the majority of folks were living vs camping at the facility. Asked for a change of site after driving by two sites that appeared to 'house' a homeless person, on the way to our campsite. The soap dispensers in both the men's and women's bathrooms were broken. The one soap bottle in the men's bathroom was out of soap the whole time. Campground next to a trailer park.

We loved the KOA! The staff was so polite and extra helpful.

Cabin had 1 ac that wasn't big enough for unit. Average sleeping room temperature was 86 when we tried to sleep. Didn't have fire pit, nor a gas grill like they said on the phone. Found live roaches in cabin so had to take everything to cleaners before going home. Staff was nice and accommodations were new but was collocates with another trailer park. Will not go back there

We had the most fantastic time! Any time we are in Charleston we stay at this KOA for its convenience. The pool is wonderful, bathrooms squeaky clean, and staff friendly and helpful.

This was the most horrible experience I've EVER HAD!!!! First the campground is right beside a trailer park full of kids. I never used the pool because everytime I tried it was full of these kids. Also the entire area just looked rough so I was never comfortable. Next the cabin has roaches!! Don't stay here!!!!!

Cabin and grounds were very clean. Bathrooms were clean and spacious. The pool area was large and clean. The area quiet and people on the grounds were helpful. My only complaint was the $50 key deposit required for the cabin. We had not budgeted for it so it affected our trip. Teens from nearby trailer park stayed on playground making my children scared to play. We would return.

We had a fantastic stay at the KOA Charleston. Can't wait to visit again soon!
Jul 22, 2013
we really enjoyed our stay. everyone was very polite and effecient. my only suggestion for the cabin screen doors is that they need to put rubber or felt pads on them as they make a really loud noise when they close. most people just let them slam and it woke us up when they went in and out at all hours of the night. however, we will be back!
Jul 22, 2013
It would have been nice to know about the $50 key deposit, before registering. The bunk beds were not true twin bunk beds as stated. The matress had to be shoved into the frame and then it would bow up in the middle. The general location is not as nice as other KOA's - the bathhouse had a coded lock, I assume to keep those that my wander around from the trailor court that is adjacent.

The noisy trailers and people living behind the cabins didn't make for a peaceful stay. Also the 1 1/2 inch cockroach that woke me up in the middle of the night because it was loud enough I thought it was a mouse. I had two that day, so that didn't make the cabin seem clean although it looked clean as well as the grounds.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and quiet facilities. Great stay!

not so bad, but also not very good. the kabin was little old but clean; the mens restroom was not so clean; the general store sells only very few things, the recreation room looks very old and a kind of dirty; you canĀ“t stay inside the room for a long time because it smells very strong like cigarettes the kabin was cheap and we stayed only two nights so it was o.k. but is nothing for longer s

Other than the pool - which was rented out for locals, not alot for the kids to do. Roaches galore in the cabin, I had to go purchase bug spray. Trailer park right behind the cabin with a dilapidated fence not appealing to see. No gate at the enterance like most KOA's so there was a lot of suspicious traffic.
Jul 16, 2013
Very clean bathrooms. Clean and comfortable kamping Kabin. Quiet and relaxing environment. Probably the best value in the charleston area. Will definately be staying here again in the future.
Jul 15, 2013
The Kampground was easily accessible and pleasant in appearance. Our Kamping Kabin was clean and well maintained. The staff was very courteous and helpful for our entire stay. We very much enjoyed our stay in Charleston.

We have stayed at this KOA for the past 4-5 yrs on an annual dive trip in the area. The facilities are clean and employees the friendly & accommodating. Area had a lot of rain lately. Would've been nice to ae had straw down in front of cabin so we didn't have to trek thru mud all week into the cabin. :-(
Jul 08, 2013
Our stay at the campground was a good experience. I do not give 5 stars due to the fact the WiFi was very poor. We could not use iPad nor laptop - signal is not strong. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and campground was well kept. We will stay again at this campground.
Jul 07, 2013
Enjoyed our stay. Only suggestions I have are the pads on bunks did not fit properly.
Jul 07, 2013
My cabin yard was so muddy I had to park at entrance and walk to it. Every time I walked across the yard my feet were covered in black mud.Pool was closed my entire stay.Never been so disappointed in a koa.I will never go back!
