The cable connections are intermittent. The internet did not work at all. The permanent campers across from us fought and kicked and threw things late into the night. The sewer hook-up was not threaded, so to drain you had to put your food on the connection to avoid spillage. Left early even though we had paid for a longer stay...not worth the headache!

The staff were very polite. The site was very nice.

This campground has done it's best to keep the KOA quality that one expects but the location is not ideal and there are many, many permanent campsites in very old trailers within this park. I did not feel safe walking my dog late a night or early in the morning. It is unfortunate that it backs up to closed businesses and a trailer park with lots of road noise. It is convenient to Charleston.

I was in town for a dog show at the fairgrounds just down the road. This was a great campground for a quick weekend stay, I found it to be quiet enough (it is near a busy road though). The sites were clean and well maintained. I didn't use any other facilities at the campsite. All the hookups worked fine for me.

Location to Charleston was great. Everybody was friendly. Auto hand dryer was broken in ladies restroom. No paper towels available. Reported that the first day but it was not fixed and no paper towels were ever put into restroom. Disappointing.

It is obvious that the park is being upgraded.Lots of work done since my stay a year ago. Have came here for last 10 years.

The campground is nice however we had a horrible night stay as there was a loud outside party at one of the sites with loud music that started at 11:00pm through 2am. Left message with the campground. Nothing was done about the noise. No compensation for the stay was offered.

There have been multiple improvements made since our visit two years ago.

Nice deluxe sites. Nice road update.higher roads mean water gathers more in campsite. We couldn't get to our truck after the rains. Don't trust the drinking water. I respond to??? But you don't! Lju

We stayed in a cabin and had a boat that the park was able to accommodate for parking. We had a great time and really enjoyed how accommodating the staff was.
Jan 02, 2017
We loved our deluxe site and was very convenient to the bathhouse. The bathhouse was very clean and neat. Very close to Charleston and we will be back!

This was our first stay at a KOA and it was great! Everything was in order for late check in, staff was very friendly. Our pups loved Camp K-9! We will be back!

Conveniently located and laid out. Easy access off of the main highway. Close to local shops and restaurants. Sunoco located right next door with easy rv in and out.

We have camped in every state in lower 48. The koa in Larson, sc is the is in the worst one we have stayed in twenty years of camping.


We see that you have stayed with us on 10 separate occasions since 2014 and value your repeat business. Please contact us directly to let us know how we can make your next stay GREAT! We strive to give all of our campers a fantastic experience.

A great site! Weather was a bit cold to sit outside on the patio. Maybe next time!

While exiting the campground, the trees on the right side of my motorhome was rubbing and scraping along the side of my RV. The tree limbs need to be trimmed.

This is not a BIG Rig friendly place. The sites are large but trees are at the end of sites, employees and long term renters park intended cab trucks along streets and around curves. The sewage is horrid and needs to be pumped or severely cleaned. When our neighbor opened his sewage we could smell it and so could another slot so we didn't use ours. We left early.

We remain blown away with the cleanliness of the cabin and the grounds! The heater in the cabin went out and when we contacted the office it was minutes later that a worker showed up with a space heater! Everyone was pleasant and our stay was great! We are making this little place our home away from home twice a year!

last day they had a water line break.

We have a 40 foot fifth wheel and chose a pull through for ease. We were parked on an end site which was easy to get in but not so easy to get out as there was a sharp turn both ways. Other than that this park was convenient to visit Charleston and lots of golf restaurants shopping etc were nearby. The park itself was just average but no problems.
Dec 13, 2016
Everyone very nice & helpful from making reservations to check in, campground very clean and easily accessible. Enjoyed our stay
Dec 11, 2016
Well I must say the kabin was clean and comfy and the bathrooms were clean but the location of the whole campground was less than desirable. Traffic was terrible and the vehicular noise until late in the evening was very disturbing. Another very annoying aspect was a large oak tree directly above my cabin that dropped acorns about every 10 minutes onto the tin roof and sounded like a 22 going off
Dec 10, 2016
Office staff was friendly and helpful. Site was roomy enough for our 5th wheel and truck. Some road and plane noise, but not disruptive.
Dec 06, 2016
Management allowed the person parked ahead of us to park way over into our spot so we were unable to use our table or even extend our awning. Location not convenient for exploring Historic Charleston. Lots of long term campers and their stuff. We did get a great restaurant recommendation.
Dec 05, 2016
We have always enjoyed staying at this KOA. The facilities are very good and the staff is always extremely friendly and helpful.


We look forward to your return!

Dog Park had ropes blocking access the 2 times I checked it. When I was leaving, I saw that it had been opened. I wasn't happy. Looks like there were assigned hours - but no signs or communication. Otherwise it was OK, although sites were very small and close together. Glad I was only staying overnight.


We are sorry that you missed the path, which is just to the left of the cable. The cable prevents driving through maintenance access. The dog park path is marked by a yellow sign. We have checked for sight line obstructions and find it clear. Park hours are listed on the dog park fence..dawn to dusk

Just a quick 2 day stop. Easy access to historic Charleston. People friendly. A lot of full time units parked there that were not very nice looking. Mostly in back section. If your RV is large and your trailer long it is a VERY tight turn to get out. Had to get help from neighbors as car on the way would not answer door to move it. Use caution. Otherwise smaller RVs ok.
Dec 03, 2016
Total lack of communication. In short an unpleasant stay, with no access to the restroom facilities. Clueless undereducated staff. Two thumbs down.


Restroom access and information is attached to your campground map that is given to you when you check in. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and hope you will try us again.
