Campground Reviews

Feb 01, 2014
paid more for this junky looking place than I did for nice ones in Florida. sites were muddy with standing water. I had to stand in a large puddle to plug in my power cord. people in the office were nice but the place is just sucking money from RV's that want a clean & safe place to stop for the night. it wouldn't cost much to add a few inches of gravel to each site to raise them above the standin

Le seul commentaire négatif est que nous avons dû attendre entre 10 et 15 minutes afin de nous faire mener à notre site. Merci.

We enjoy this campground and stay here one night on the way to Florida every January. The black dirt was problematic this year as our two dogs tracked it all over the carpeting. This also was the most expensive campground on our way south. Very friendly folks in the office here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The crush and run installed in Aug. has been churned under during the excessive rains this season. We have called in experts to improve drainage and lay new sod. Our rates are middle of the KOA spectrum. Sorry we did not meet your expectations. We strive to make it GREAT and will continue.

We have stayed at Point South twice before and it has always been a good experience. Staff is very good and helpful.

I am so glad you found your experience at Point South KOA a great one. May your travels continue to provide you with pleasant experiences.

Sites too confined and muddy. Need to lay down gravel or other ground cover on sites. OK overnight stop but not multiple days.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We certainly understand the drainage problem and have hired a company to once again help rectify it. We had 4 trucks of gravel spread at those back sites Aug. 2013 and it has already churned under the sand from the environment coastal living provides. We are also adding more sod to those sites.

too expensive! Poor sites! Bad entrance! Just another KOA bummer!

Just a one-night stopover on our way to Florida, but staff was oh, so friendly! Great pizza and a wine-tasting made us feel very welcome. Would definitely stay here again.

A very nice camp when you are travelling or passing through. Some issues with water drainage during and after a heavy rain. They need to promote the area more and put up more signage from the main road. We will camp there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for staying with us. We are unable to put any more KOA signs up due to DOT which is why we tell everyone directions who call. We are situated in the heart of the lowcountry close to beautiful sites and venues. Look forward to seeing you again. Happy Travels.

The staff was friendly enough, it is just the campground, very dirty under the trees, sites had that black sand, terrible if you have a dog!! The sites were not level at all, the restaurant was a frozen pizza menu, not at all what I expected from a KOA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our Pizza is Hunt Bros. It is delivered to us with with crust and cheese premade and flash frozen. We add toppings and fresh veg. It has been served since 2002 and had many favorable compliments. We appreciate your comments and will strive to improve.

Wanda and staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The campground is nice enough but I would never stay there if there is a chance of rain. It is all dirt.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am glad you found the staff to be helpful and accommodating. We will have crush and run gravel and more sod brought in again this season. Life in the lowcountry provides great challenges in keeping it from washing from our sand dune. Happy Travels to you and yours.

We really only stayed overnight after a long day of driving. It was nice that it was convenient to the highway.

We really enjoy going camping at Point south, SC! It's not far from where we live and a great long weekend get away. My husband, kids and I love that we can bring our atv's and cruz around the lake. They kids love the Park and we have a great time playing tether ball too. The employee's are always nice and the campgrounds are very clean! Oh and the pizza is good too!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad you had a lovely stay and are continuing to make life long memories with your family. We look forward to seeing you again. Happy Camping to you and yours!

Facilities were very good, but pricy for dirt sites. I am glad we missed the rain.
Jan 19, 2014
It was wall to wall mud. No men's bath house. Under construction. Very tight site. Hard to get in and out of with 36' RV. Will stay Good Sam next door the next time we come through. Thank you.

Sorry we did not meet your expectation and you had to endure some of our growing pains.. Hope you have a great trip and find what you desire next door. Happy Travels.

Le camping dans l'ensemble est médiocre et la pluie rend les terrains inondé

Men's showers not in service; hours available on women's side very limited and inconvenient. Should have at least discounted the rate. Otherwise a good place to stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are really excited about the opening of our new men's restroom. So sorry you had to experience the growing pains with us, but hope you enjoy the fruits of the labor, if you are able to stop again. Happy Camping from Point South KOA.

Great staff. Easy on/off hwy. Its an older park but it works for transient traffic. Not sure if we would spend more than 2 days
Jan 14, 2014
Préposés très gentils et avenants. Site ok pour un site très boisé sur lequel il avait plu pas mal. Merci pour tout
Jan 13, 2014
A great overnight stop on I95. Friendly staff and good services
Jan 13, 2014
I stayed one night and it had just rained. Our site was muddy and the rest room water power in the showers was poor. I think the rate is to high for this campground. With this rate I would expect better sites with concrete slabs or gravel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Due to the exorbitant amount of rain in this past year the 3 truck loads of crush and run washed into the woods. Living in the low country provides it's challenges along with it's beauty. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. Happy Camping!
Jan 13, 2014
No real opinion - ony a stop-over -spent the night and moved on in the morning. Coffee shop - nice perk.
Jan 11, 2014
no sign to get into the campground. pad was 10 feet away from rv. Great services such as pizza and wine tasting. we have recommended this KOA to others who will be staying next month

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We will go and look at the pad and make sure it is within usable space for your convenience. As far as the signage, we are legally not allowed to add any other signs on the road. We have directions marked in the directory, online, on the message and during phone calls

Everyone was very friendly and helpful from check in to check out.we enjoyed the pizza, wings and the wine tasting. They are re-doing the men's bathrooms so that was a little inconvenient but understandable. It had rained the morning we arrived so the grounds were muddy, I would suggest putting pea rock or something at the sites so your not walking in mud and tracking it into your camper!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for staying. We are excited about our new men's room being reopened & apologize for having to share our growing pains. The gravel situation is ongoing, as we had 3 dump trucks loaded last summer. The sand & rain has churned it under the sites again. More rock will come in spring.
Jan 09, 2014
Excellent stay. Great pizza. We also noticed that the campground has been cleaned up quite a bit since our last stay (flowers planted, leaves cleaned up) Campground looks much nicer than before.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us and noticing our improvements. We are in a complete rehab of the men's room now and look forward to that opening. Happy travels and hope to see you again.
Jan 08, 2014
Better than usual wifi. Five stars if 1) better marking of ingress and egress routes and 2) doggy poo bag stations (other KOAs spoil us).
Jan 07, 2014
We needed help getting service for the RV leveling system and they came through for us. Their recommendations were right on the money.
Jan 07, 2014
nice people running the place but bathrooms cold and little hot water. early the next morning men's bathroom totally torn apart without warning when we checked in. husband couldnt get a shower. we simply pulled out early. would have been appropriate to be warned ahead of time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We traced the problem with our water heater as soon as we were made aware and diligently work at rectifying issues of any kind. The bathroom rehab is extensive, indeed. We have two signs posted and upon check in everyone is told. I am so sorry you were inadvertently not made aware.
Jan 07, 2014
Staff was great but the camp itself was not worth the $47 charge. For that $ atleast stone pads or cement. Very muddy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, the crush and run and gravel continually added to the sites churns under the sand from the coastal environment. We have hired a company to help us deal with the drainage issues in hopes of coming up with a viable solution. Thanks for stopping. Happy Camping.

I use point south whenever I am on my return home late in the day. I don't like to come home and unload in the dark. I drive a motorhome, towing.
Jan 05, 2014
Could add crushed stone to the campsites. Wet sand and dirt was not cool. Definitely need to update the bathrooms and pipe in hot water. Just off I-95 so expect to hear traffic all night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry. The hot water is being resolved as it just became an issue. Our mens shower is now gutted and will be brand new by 1/16.
