Campground Reviews

Jan 21, 2014
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!

Facilities were very good, but pricy for dirt sites. I am glad we missed the rain.

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.

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

A great overnight stop on I95. Friendly staff and good services

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!

No real opinion - ony a stop-over -spent the night and moved on in the morning. Coffee shop - nice perk.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 04, 2014
Halfway home from Orlando. Great place to stop for the night. Very nice people and great pizza delivered to our site! We will stope hear again.

Raining and sloppy sand. Host was great. We stayed only overnight. We will probably stay again, just not when raining.
Jan 04, 2014
we stay here every year on our way to florida.The staff are nice but I cant understand why the owner does not correct the flooding problem just by putting some gravel on the sites.This place is a filthy mud pit and our trailer and truck are covered with dirt. Bob Perrottet.perrottetm@yahoo.com

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had four trucks of crush and run added to the sites in the back in Aug. It again has churned under the sand. We hear the problem and have hired a crew to help determine the best resolution.
Jan 04, 2014
The showers were cold in the AM

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been made aware of the problem and have addressed it. So sorry for your inconvenience. Happy Travels.

The people were great but the conditions of the park in the rain were terrible. They need to add some gravel to the sites and to the road. They also need to mark the direction of the exit road more clearly. I had to help a guy with a fifth wheel find his way out when he went the wrong direction.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry about the camper going the wrong way. We try to instruct everyone how to get out when we park folks. The rain during the last two weeks has amounted to over 6 inches, in snow terms about 3 feet.
Jan 03, 2014
Not an ideal location on a rainy day due to site drainage problems.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We have hired a company to help us again deal with the drainage issue and will be adding more. We had 4 dump trucks of gravel spread in the back sites in Aug 2013 which is now churned under our sand. We are addressing this issue. Happy Camping.
Jan 02, 2014
The best!
Jan 02, 2014
Love the new fenced pet area, but boy was it muddy getting back there. This whole campground has mud issues when it rains. Perhaps some gravel would help especially around the RV parking spots. You track so much dirt/sand in your RV.
Jan 02, 2014
the campground appeared to be old and run down was very hard to maneuver with bigger campers. The bathrooms very outdated and old and there was no hot water for shower in the morning. Staff was very pleasant

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We are listening to our guests. Complete remodel in the men's room begins 1/8. An additional water heater is being installed as well. Happy Travels to you from Point South KOA!

Great Staff and facilities!! Some sites are narrow and there are some tight turns around trees. We will stay again if it is on our way.
Dec 31, 2013
Two words - tree stumps. Connections, sewer and electrical are too far apart, so even though I paid for full hook up had to forgo the sewer.
Dec 31, 2013
one night staff great. no problems very quiet
Dec 31, 2013
Great place! Clean showers, nice staff, convenient pull through site. We stayed on the way to Florida and on the way back.
