Meet Your Hosts
"We treat everyone with respect and strive to deliver a product that pleases our kampers and serves their needs."
Bill and Barbara Olendorf purchased the lovely Point South kampground in 1983 and have been adding to its beauty and fun ever since. Joined by their daughter, Jennifer Olendorf Mason the family tradition continues through the next generation.
"We treat everyone with respect and strive to deliver a product that pleases our kampers and serves their needs," say Bill, Barbara and Jennifer.
Before becoming kampground owners, Bill spent 20 years in Chicago as a television advertising sales executive, while Barbara kept busy as a stay-at-home mom, with a grown son and raising two daughters.
"We were ready for a change! Bill was particularly interested in working for himself and we both had grown tired of winters in the North," say the Olendorfs. They loved to camp, so they investigated the campground field. Seeing the Point South kampground in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, with its mild winters, natural beauty and rich history sealed the deal.
Bill and Barbara have added enjoyable and unique amenities to the kampground, including the Kaboose and Trolley cabins, the Swimming Mermaid Coffee House, as well as Barbara's many mini-gardens planted throughout the park. Also provided is pizza for their kampers' enjoyment right at their kampsites! The latest addition includes the Wine Bar with nightly wine tastings featuring four local wineries. Enjoy the tastings of 10 selections of reds, whites and/or fruits, by the glass or purchase a bottle to take home as a gift or souvenir.
Bill spends his spare time as an amateur radio operator, with call sign K4KOA. He is a Civil War expert and loves to sail. Barbara enjoys reading and computerized genealogy. Together, they enjoy their family and attend Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Jennifer loves to travel, read and spend time with family and friends.
