There was theft at this campground. The office was broken into while we were there and also my dish satellite (tailgator) was stolen from my campsite. Which is about $350 dollars!! The site I had doesn't have enough room to accommodate my camper and truck. I had to park in another spot. All together bad experience especially for the $250 a week rate.

Sites far too close together, tight spaces everywhere including roads, no TV hookups. Floods when it rains. Good location, close to shopping and Charleston Metro, but won't stay again.

Cramped, tight,un-level spots. Almost no outdoor night time lighting. Several Rv's and tent in disrepair. Terrible traffic at this location.

Disappointed. Site next to us had a significant black tank leak. Reported it to the office and there was no response. Sketchy long term tent campers too.

Location good for our visit (family & tourist activities). Most of the quiet, out or the way sites taken up by monthly rentals, not available to us visitors.

This older campground certainly does not uphold the KOA reputation. I usually don't do much checking, if it is in the KOA book I expect quality. Guess I will have to change that habit and be more careful. For details on my thoughts you are welcome to call (919)818-7914. Mud, broken asphalt, poorly placed utilities, low A/C utility, rate too high for amenities offered, etc, etc, etc.

Unfortunately this KOA has seen better days. Dark, dank, untended flower beds, fire ants, grass had not been mowed, flies. Can not comment on facilities, did not use. The attendants were helpful and courteous.

Traffic is terrible trying to get in or out in the early morning and late afternoon between 3 and 6pm. The campground is situated between two traffic signals.

pool was good. playground was not real safe for kids. The steps going to slide was slippery.

"Camp Swampy" Numerous sites swamped out during rain storms. Need to resurface (re-rock) the sites and fix the interior road. Had to purchase additional sewer hose extensions to reach the ground sewer connection point. Okay and convenient for overnight stay.

We were disappointed with this campground. The sites were small and crowded. Very little gravel was on the sites, and since there was a rain shower most of the 9 days we stayed there, these sites were muddy and had standing water much of the time.

We have stayed in MANY KOA Kampgrounds and have learned that usually that first impression is accurate. The entrance was just normal with no particular curb appeal. The entrance through another trailer park was very unappealing. The trees and shrubs were overgrown and very weedy. No cable tv was offered and trees were overgrown so antennae was not usable. Poor drainage on sites.

The staff was awesome, very friendly and extremely helpful.

Lots of campers seem to be extended stay. Very muddy (no poured pads). Bathroom/shower area was nice and clean.

I would NEVER Stay at the Charleston,SC KOA again!Made reservation over 4 wks prior and was told I would be on site B4. They put me on C2 which turned on to be a FLOOD ZONE. B4 stayed DRY! I have pics 3-4 inches of water on ENTIRE SITE. Ruined many items stored under our camper. Mgr, when told of situation, had nothing to say and did NOTHING to compensate me for our loss.NEVER stay on C2!

This campground should not bear the KOA symbol. I'm sorry but it is not at all up to the normal KOA standards. The campground is very small, the sites were not completely traveled, the sites were not level, the sites were washed out in places, the campground was part of a Mobil home park with quest enable people walking around. Sorry but I am used to a certain level of comfort at KOA parks.

Terrain mal irrigué qui inonde après un orage.

Efficient in the office, but the campground was far below expectations. Sites were small and junkie. There was a pickup truck full of garbage on site. We had friends pick us up at our camper and it was embarrassing. We stayed one night and could not wait to get out of there.
Jul 18, 2014
Very dark, sites so close our picnic table was about 6 feet from next sites sewer. Heavy rains caused our RV to be sitting in about 6 inches of water. As an overnight stay heading to another destination, it would suffice, for a long stay, we won't be back.
Jul 18, 2014
was not up to usual KOA standards. Place looked in need of a good spruce up. was a continual sewerage smell. Many permanent residents and apparently abandoned trailers and motorhomes.
Jul 17, 2014
Sites not pick up, had old dog pooph when we arrived. Gardens and landscapeing awful!! And there seemed to be alot of shady people staying at campground, like they lived there. I would Never stay there again.

There was no gravel to park on and walk on at our campsite. This resulted in black sandy dirt being tracked into our rv constantly. I suggested to the manager that gravel be added to the campsites to make the campsites cleaner but he cited problems with rocks and weed eating. I said weed killer would solve that problem but he just looked at me like I had 12 eyes.

Several sewers were without a cover or had broken up rocks piled up to attempt to cover them. Both the men and women's bathroom had the liquid handsoap in WINDEX bottles! Seriously? That endangers children and represents very poor judgement.

The ladies at the desk were nice. The campground is situated right behind an Exxon gas station and on the same grounds with a trailerpark. My first concern was getting in there and receiving a security code for the bathroom. Not very appealing to look at. Small sites. Never going back.

The place was messy. Difficult to position 5th wheel and still reach drain and electric and water. Trash piled up around restrooms. We will not be back.

This place is a disgrace to the KOA community. There is no security. Our bikes were stolen right out from under our awning. It is a muddy mess from one into the other. I have sent in several poor surveys but nothing seems to change.

We stayed at this campground because it was right off the interstate. KOA campgrounds are nice places to stay for the weekend or how ever long u want.
