Like the wine and coffee bar!
Aug 25, 2014
We love the place, but this time we found dead & live roaches & spiders.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the issue. We clean the lodges after each use and do not understand how this could happen. We are sorry that you did not inform us of the problem. We have inspected the lodge and made sure any issues where corrected. WCO

Needs a little upkeep. Some cables and pipes showing in the roads.too many roots from trees in sites and white Limey sand. Needs more gravel. But nice people and good for an overnight stop.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Living in the sands of the lowcountry, constant erosion of our ground occurs. We continually add granite which washes away with the rain. We are slated to bring more in. The tree surgeon has been out 3 times this year to remove stumps and roots. This year the bathrooms are being totally rehabbed. JM

My arrival was late due to inexperience and planning, but I was delighted to see that a plan was in place for late arrivals and I was able to accommodate myself without issue; meeting the manager in the morning, I received valuable suggestions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you found our late night check in procedures to be of ease in use. We hope your trip is equally worry free. Happy Camping from the folks at Point South KOA. JDM

The staff is very nice but the campsites are a little too rustic for our tastes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. We hope that you can find a suitable campsite in the future. KOA certainly has something for everyone. Happy Travels.

I loved the size of the cabin. Perfect size for our family of five. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Aug 10, 2014
All good we were just passing through. Wish we could stayed longer. Nice staff
Aug 10, 2014
As a repeat customer, feel I should let you know. Couple of things were not up to par as they normally are. Pool had green slim on sides and bottom,I do realize with all the rain it is hard to keep up with. The door to the lodge would not close all the way. My other half went out to get breakfast and the gentleman must have thought we were gone,He walked right in as I was getting out of shower.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have checked the front door on the lodge. We are sorry for the intrusion. We have addressed the issue and will knock harder to make sure that the lodges are empty before entering. Sometimes events have a way of happening without warning. Sorry and this is certainly an isolated incident.

Very nice campground. Amenities are very good and staff were helpful and communicated area attractions extremely well. Sales and entry office is very appealing. Display of merchandise was quite appealing and organized. Mens bathroom was very nice and the womens bathroom was clean and can't wait to see what it looks like after remodel.

I would have rated my stay at this KOA as excellent except for one small incident. My son was swimming in the pool and grabbed the heavy safety line that marked the area from shallow to deep for a brief rest. A grumpy old KOA employee,the grounds mower, also swimming in the pool, yelled at my son to get off the line or he might have to pay for damage, maybe a new pool, ha, ha. Not my kind of guy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The South Carolina state law is "NO ROPE, NO POOL". We have to be, by law, firm about the rule. We are sorry about the way that it was handled and this will be addressed. Of course he won't have to "pay damages" but if we allow the pool without the rope, SC fines start at $1600.+ loss of permit. WCO

trees were close to trying to drive also roots are really above ground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are wooded and continue to have the tree surgeon who has been out twice this year come and remove trees, stumps and roots. We are thankful for the shade during the hot summer months though. Thank you for choosing to stay at Point South KOA.

Overall a great experience. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Loved the coffee bar and wine. This may not be a plus for some but the alligator-inhabited lake adjacent to the park was an exciting experience well above the typical mundane. Something us people from Illinois would only experience in the controlled environment at the city zoo.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Point South KOA. Having moved from upper Illinois ourselves we understand about seeing all of the beauty that the lowcountry offers. Happy Camping to you and yours.
Aug 06, 2014
This park is lovely, we would have loved to stay longer, but, was on the way home after 3 months away.
Aug 06, 2014
Loved the trolley camping and the personal attention to the little ones.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed our unique camping experience in the Charleston trolley which has been converted into a cabin. Appreciate your making us apart of your travel itinerary. Happy Camping! JDM

Wine tasting very nice.
Aug 03, 2014
Very nice park. Staff was very courteous and friendly. Was only there for one night, but may plan on returning to visit the area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for planning to return. We are 30 min to Beaufort, SC, 45 min to Savannah & 60 min to Charleston. Chas. & Savannah have been named the #1 & #2 friendliest cities in the US.

Our site got flooded with each rain event and bathrooms had showers out of order during the height of tourist season Locks on stalls were working

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that it rained during your stay. The rainfall was so intense they cancelled the local festival event. The men's room was remodeled in Jan and the women's will be done end of Sept. The expense for repair for 4 weeks on the one stall doesn't make sense when it will be immediately torn out

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for stopping. As you can see on our website and other reviews, the men's room was just remodeled and enjoyed and women's slated redo in Sept. and others find it consistently clean. Sorry we did not meet your expectations. We do have a 100% refund in 1st hour. JDM
