RV Reviews

Apr 22, 2015
Conditions of the grounds were poor. Sites were muddy and difficult to access with large rig (37'5th wheel).
Apr 22, 2015
This campground definitely does not meet KOA standards. Was by far the worst campground I have ever stayed in and came there because it was a KOA.
Apr 22, 2015
Worst KOA we've ever stayed in. KOA corporate should take a look and think hard about who is representing KOA. It is a mud pit, roads/ facilities are not maintained. The place needs lots and lots of work. We cut our stay short by one day it was so bad...even lost my KOA credit because of it. Would never recommend this place to anyone.

We found the campground, where we were, unkempt. We were in the back near the dog run, it was like a dump. area.

Stayed here many times when visiting family near Charleston.

Beautiful campground, clean, large lots, easy access to ocean and all other shopping.
Apr 14, 2015
Campground was clean. Staff helpful. Problem was noise. Street traffic from Rt 78 very noisy. Plane traffic at night and early in morning annoying
Apr 14, 2015
Interior roads are very narrow. Sites are very small in fact too small to have a campfire. This KOA appears to be an older campground. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating.
Apr 14, 2015
Friendly, helpful lady's, Owner and desk clerk. Will visit again when going to visit Cadet Grandson at the Citadel. We had a nice TENT site.
Apr 14, 2015
More like a trailer park. We couldn't dump our waste, no room
Apr 13, 2015
Could not get to sleep last night there because of noise. Quiet time was 11 pm . People across from us still partying at 2:30
Apr 13, 2015
Staff pleasant and facilities clean .
Apr 13, 2015
Nice place to stay, needs another bathhouse. Only one for the entire campground causes lines to take a shower.
Apr 12, 2015
Nice quiet campground.
Apr 11, 2015
The campground was clean, quiet and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again!
Apr 11, 2015
Clean bath house and friendly staff, thanks for that. Negative was limited personal space between sites.
Apr 10, 2015
This campground is close to many things to see. It is also situated near the air force base and planes flying low. Access route 78 very busy: hard to get in and out. Sites are tight, although ours was nice and had beautiful azaleas. Access to dog park was closed off with a cable most of the time. Why???
Apr 10, 2015
pleasant but the campground is tired. they need to clean up the sites after people leave so it at looks as if they care about their facilities. it is the little things that makr the difference
Apr 09, 2015
This is the worst KOA we've ever been to. It's poorly laid out. The roads are very narrow. When someone is filling up with propane, they block the exit lane. Because of that RVs that are leaving have to wait along the road, blocking in people who want to pull in or out of their site. Sites, which are dirt, are narrow and you barely have room to park the car. Some SUVs and pickup trucks actua
Apr 09, 2015
Sloppy management allows trashy long termers who let dogs bark all night
Apr 09, 2015
One of the Friendliest KOA's I've stayed at.
Apr 08, 2015
Bees at playground. Seemed like it had seen better times. Dog area so so. Poop everywhere despite bags for owners to clean up. Staff helpful and friendly.
Apr 08, 2015
Well kept facilities in town.
Apr 08, 2015
Friendly staff, Pool was ok, free coffee in the Morning !!! The Way to Charleston was half an Hour Drive. The Name of the campground made us thinking, that Charleston would be nearby.
Apr 06, 2015
Awesome as always! Clean, nice. Staff very nice! We are returning campers and will continue to come back!
Apr 06, 2015
Great place will be back thanks
Apr 06, 2015
The facility was well kept and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location made me a little uncomfortable (not the best part of town) but we didn't have anything happen to particularly concern me. By the third night I was sleeping well through the night and not waking up at every little sound.
Apr 06, 2015
Just ok. Lots of road noise, unkept grounds, staff not especially helpful or friendly. No activities. Not what we've come to expect from KOA camps.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Easter weekend our big activity is the annual Easter Party for the children. We hunt Easter Eggs and enjoy games and prizes.
Apr 05, 2015
Bad location, lots of traffic noise, lots of campsite locations need to be cleaned up, bees swarming the cabins, no fire rings, people from the next door trailer park using all the facilities. Staff was friendly though.
Apr 05, 2015
Pool wasn't open March 15th like the website stated. This was the only reason we stayed there for spring break in April. Long Stay area is disgusting. Dog park is right next to a 10 ft. trash pile/dump. You will hear planes and trains along with road noise all night. Entrance is tight if an RV is there checking in. Muddy sites. Great location to HWY 26 & popular destinations.
Apr 04, 2015
We had deep tire grooves and a lot mud around our site. Only 2 of 3 showers and toilets worked and the family shower was out of order. If was kind of far from everything we wanted to do. The workers were very pleasant and polite.
Apr 04, 2015
Very pleasant woman in store for checking-she couldn't have been nicer to us and went out of her way to get things we asked for-small dark haired woman is an exceptional employee!
Apr 03, 2015
Updated bathrooms are good. Sites need work i. e. Drainage, appearance Very convenient to Charleston. Office staff is helpful.

Clean, quiet although there were a lot of people there. Love the new Dog Park. Great idea.

Grounds and campsites need updating. Sites need a gravel base. Too muddy
Mar 31, 2015
This was the worst KOA we have ever stayed at. It had rained and our site was under water the whole weekend. The screenings that were put down on the site made everything worse. Stones would have been much better. It was one big mud hole.
Mar 30, 2015
Our campsite was very muddy...some gravel would have greatly improved the situation. Bathrooms were convenient and staff was friendly. Cleanliness was average to slightly above average (for KOA). There wasn't much for our teenaged daughter to do as the pool was closed (despite having been advertised in the catalog as open).
Mar 29, 2015
Muddy. Needs to put gravel down. No lights at night. Worst campground ever stayed at.
Mar 24, 2015
There was very little grass; when it rained there was mud everywhere & our site actually had a deep puddle. Lucky for us we had another door we could use, but not to track mud in. Hosts were nice & helpful, but grounds need some work. Restrooms were very nice.
Mar 23, 2015
muddy and expensive
Mar 23, 2015
This campground should not be part of KOA. The roads are too narrow, with trees on turns or in the middle. The sites are too tight. Our site, C6, was a mud pit coming up to the rims of the wheels. All sites need additional gravel. The 50 gallon dog poop was 3/4 full and stank. Luckily, we only booked 1 night there and we won't be coming back there.
Mar 21, 2015
Sites aren't wide enough, Your on top of the neighbors sewer. Barking dogs all night long.
Mar 19, 2015
Staff is great and willing to assist in all situations. Doing a good job of making improvements to facilities and hopefully will continue. Great location to area.
Mar 19, 2015
A few run-down sites (long term renters). Poorly lite. No real place to walk Dog.
Mar 16, 2015
Sewer connections are totally unacceptable. There is no way I could make a leak proof connection, even with a donut. I have been staying here since 2008 and nothing has improved. If it was not for your location near family members, I would not stay here.

The campground was okay and the people were nice in the office, but the sites were dirt which got dragged onto my carpet. They put us on a site that was too steep and we couldn't get our motorhome level. If we had only been staying overnight that would have been okay, but we were staying 5 nights.
