Stayed here in prior years.. Pizza ans wings are great. This year, due to rain, the sites were flooded and muddy. Time for some cement patios and drainage repairs...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are all dried out and look great. The 20 out of 30 days of rain was quite overwhelming. We are bringing more granite in for the sites as we have recovered from the inundation of rain. The sandy soil destroys our site cover no matter what we lay down. We are weighing options. Happy Camping. JDM

Drainage at the campsite was not adequate. Couldn't step off the graveled area without walking in water. Otherwise, very nice stay, nice folks, well kept.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have had 20+ out of 30 days of rain. The ground is drying and things are returning to normal. We are sorry for your inconvenience. Thank you for choosing Point South KOA.

Loved the location and the staff. The little store they had was nice with the wine and coffee bar. They also had wings and pizza as well as Ice cream. Would stay there again.

It was the first time I stayed here, was very satisfied. I like the wine bar and Espresso.

An Ok place good as s stop over from I95. Sites could use a bit of work and updating.
Jan 04, 2016
We have stayed here before on our way to Florida. Very nice and accommodating. Will go there again.
Jan 04, 2016
It was great to arrive at the campground after 11 hours of driving, in the pouring rain, the cabin was ready, food was convenient and we could settle in for a restful night for another 7 hour drive the next day!
Jan 04, 2016
Quick and easy place to stay when traveling
Jan 04, 2016
Very rainy weather but campground was clean and the staff did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The food they served was also very good and a good value.Very friendly!
Jan 04, 2016
Wish we could have stayed longer. Coffee was great!
Jan 04, 2016
Just a quick overnight stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Jan 04, 2016
Great service!
Jan 04, 2016
Staff was great. Even offered a refund because it was so wet. A little pricey compared to our last koa. Some gravel could really help the mud situation. Overall, a good stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing Point South KOA. It is our policy to offer 100% refund within an hour of check in if unsatisfied. We're replacing the gravel we add each year that churns under our coastal sand especially after 20 days of rain in the last 30. We are reevaluating our site maintenance program.
Jan 04, 2016
Stayed New Years Eve night here and it was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend and I would stay here again.

Thanks for the friendly staff and great facilities.
Jan 03, 2016
Too much mud; campsite was really too small for our trailer (we reserved ahead); neighbors fire pit was very close to our trailer (lucky they did not use). Staff very nice and helpful
Jan 03, 2016
Very interactive and makes sure your comfortable
Jan 03, 2016
Great campground! We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting and food that was available in the lodge. All facilities were very nice.
Jan 03, 2016
Staff was friendly and very helpful. I have never had a bad experience at a KOA.
Jan 03, 2016
Never been to a KOA that didn't have a sewage hookup. Dump station takes too long when checking out. Wouldn't go back. Too many other nice KOA campgrounds.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have full hook-up sites. We are sorry that you did not make a reservation on the busiest week of the new year when we are full. Repeat, we do have full hook ups. They where full because other folks made reservations. WCO
Jan 03, 2016
Extremely poor drainage. Does not handle rain well at all. Nice people.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The last 30 days have brought 20 days with rain. Dormant trees and sandy soil caused pooling although it cleared significantly within a day of ceasing and all within 2 days. We are sorry for your inconvenience. Closed sites due to this are now reopened. Thank you for choosing Point South KOA.
Jan 03, 2016
PS KOA has become a destination stop for us on our travels up and down I-95. This time we arrived after days of rain. If there is only one major improvement to be made that is either pave or re-gravel the roads and sites. Other than that the staff is the reason this KOA won the #1 rating. Regardless of the mud we will return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

During the last 30 days it has rained for 20. We are going to get gravel this week to repair a the damage from the constant wet.
Jan 02, 2016
Our first camping experience will not be our last. We rented the larger cabin and it was very clean and well equipped for us first timers. Staff was very friendly and campground was clean. Easy enough to find staff and were very helpful. The pizza and wine were a great convenience!
Jan 02, 2016
very good

Considering all the rain we got, this camp site faired out very well. No muddy areas to make life miserable. We will come back.
Jan 02, 2016
Great campground, bathrooms very clean, cable, wifi worked great. Hosts extremely nice and helpful.
Jan 02, 2016
Everyone is so helpful and friendly

Mud hole

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for our continuing rain. Our area at the present tlme is saturated and taking longer to dry as we have had 20+ days of rain this month. You always have an hour for a 100% money back guarantee which we reminded everyone upon check in knowing the uncontrollable issue of excessive rain JDM

They really need to put gravel on interior roads and sites. It was a real mud bath getting in and out of the site as well as walking around.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Living in the sands of the low country erode the gravel we continually bring in. We will install another 10+ 10 ton trucks of gravel when the rain subsides. It is a continual effort to stay ahead of in our beautiful environment which we do love. We are reevaluating timing of annual deliveries. JM
Dec 31, 2015
The sites were very small and due to the rain, we were in a pool of water and mud. When asked for plywood or something to step onto to get out of the water, there was nothing available. Would not stay there again. Water and electric was almost $50, not worth the cost

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This was a closed site due to the water that we offered to open for your convenience to get out of the horrendous I-95 traffic which was agreed upon. Our rates are average for KOA and our version of your General Sales Tax is much lower than yours. . We are always happy to accommodate. JDM

The gentleman at the counter, Brad, seemed to become easily confused and flustered. We were directed to a location which he stated we had to back into but it was actually a pull into. There was no sewer, the 30 amp kept tripping even though the only thing on was 1 A/C unit and 1 light. The bathrooms were nice and the staff was friendly. It was decent but the coordination of things were off.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry we had an off night. We will address site allocation issues to clarify placements. We see that you have a 50 amp rig. We advised you that this was a 30 amp site so you cannot expect it to run all your appliances at once. Happy travels. JDM
Dec 31, 2015
Nice camp ,muddy sites .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your support. We are bringing in more gravel in the next week once it dries out. Life in the low country has it's pros and cons. Happy camping and we appreciate you being a supporter of Point South KOA. JDM

I understand that the weather has been bad in SC but the park was very muddy and very hard to walk around. It is 100% better than the campground just down the road which was a mud pit and should have been closed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had many sites closed that night and opening them upon request for weary travelers as they decided on that option to stay to get out of the horrendous holiday traffic. We always offer complete money back guarantee within an hour. No questions asked. Happy travels. JDM

We stayed one night on unlevel FHU for $51,and it was like living in a swamp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the exorbitant amount of rain we experienced. Life in the lowcountry has it's bounty and also it's downfall of sandy coastal situations. You are the first to state that site is not level so we'll reevaluate it. We did offer the one hour money back which is always an option. JDM

We arrived late however the staff were great! Extremely friendly and helpful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank You for the nice comments. Happy travels
Dec 28, 2015
Grounds were kept poorly, small KOA store. Very bad mosquito problem. Beer priced too high

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that our store did not meet your expectations with groceries, camp supplies, gifts, ice cream and fresh to order pizza. We live in a subtropical coastal plain and have to live with the environment. Our prices for beer are within the range of c-stores in our area. Happy Kamping.
Dec 28, 2015
Want to thank the staff for fitting me in and helping me into the site in the dark. Nice place and friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

real freindly people and very helpful
Dec 27, 2015
It was fun and great experience. We do plan to visit again however they need to replace bathroom carpet...extremely dirty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As we do not have carpet in our lodges. We assume you are referring to the bathmat. We will see to it today. If it did not meet your expectations we would have replaced it on request. WCO
Dec 25, 2015
Sites are very small and we had its not easy getting out It could use road repair

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your comments. We are trying to plan a major remodel of our sites. We hope you find what you are looking for. Happy camping..... WCO
Dec 25, 2015
It seemed expensive considering we were in a space with no sewer hookup.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our rates our average for KOA's. We strive to keep up with the desires of our campers and are constantly rated in the top tier of all campgrounds on I-95. We appreciate the support of all who continue to camp with us. Hope you find a match. Happy travels. WCO
