The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay. Not many campgrounds have pizza, coffee and wine tasting on site. The coffee and pizza were good. Next time I will have to try the wine tasting.

We went for our 29th anniversary. Just needed to get away and enjoy nature. It was awesome! We had a nice little cabin in the very back by the woods. Cabin had everything we needed. Enjoyed the pizza and our stay. Camp hosts were great

First of all, Sue was the one staff member that was excellent. When I tried to ask for the owner to review my 3 charges Joni wouldnt call Jennifer and just gave me a card and when I called NO ANSWER. When someone says DEPOSIT that means u will get back but not the case at all. And charging for per person and not being told. staff being rude,son in wheelchair in truck when loading up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry for your misunderstanding about deposits. KOA's policy is the first nights deposit paid to guarantee your staying with us and us saving the lodge for you where no one else will reserve it. it was deducted from the rest of your stay. You were not overcharged it was just a prepayment guarantee. I am available and did get back as soon as possible but can not be on call 24/7 everyday. JDM~

Wonderful spot, close to 85, and loved the cabin!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You may have us confused as we are 1/8 of a mile off of I95 at exit 33 in SC. Unless it was a typo. We are glad you had a great experience regardless. Happy Camping. Jennifer~

We enjoyed our 4-night stay in the deluxe cabin. The campsite was very clean and all of the staff was busy keeping the amenities in working order. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and the pool. The campsite was close to downtown Beaufort and kayaking in the river. About an hour drive to Hilton Head Island and an hour to Huntington Island State Park. Recommend the campground and those sites.

Need better coffee. Very weak!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow... I wonder if you have us confused with another KOA. We have a full line coffee bar with a menu equalling Starbucks but use a local roaster from Charleston where it is roasted when we order the beans and grind it fresh. We use 50 grams per carafe and no one has ever mentioned it weak. We can even pull a shot of espresso from our Astoria machine to make it even stronger. Happy travels. JDM

Disappointed in the 1 room cabin- not overly clean and had a smell. Bed uncomfortable. Cabins are getting over priced - we stayed in a pet friendly hotel the next night of our travels and it was cheaper and room was nicer and had a bathroom. We may rethink using the KOA cabins in the future. Also only 1 shower in main restrooms not enough for the size of campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for your discomfort, Michelle. As you can see by our reviews we are a Very Clean and well maintained park. Open 365 days a year 14 hours a day once in a while we miss it. We will check the cabin for smell. Please let us know while you are here so we can address any issue. We have two showers in the bathroom close to the cabin. We lost one due to federal ADA mandates.

We enjoyed our long weekend at Point South, KOA. We had a cabin with the queen size bed and the bunkroom. The staff was very friendly, our cabin was great! We look forward to more visits. It was very family oriented for the kids, alot to do, the life-size chess game was awesome and the girls loved the pool the best! Yes, we used the fire ring and made smores! Great summer memories�

Our stay was brief but very enjoyable. The staff was absolutely wonderful, we enjoyed the wine tasting and the lady who served us was very entertaining and charming. We stayed in a cabin, which was very clean and was exactly as advertised so we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the pool which was also clean and well kept. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you!
Aug 04, 2019
Very friendly staff. We appreciated that we could stay with our pets in a cabin & we loved the dog park. Great pizza. We will be back!

Nice clean campground. Friendly staff.
Jul 31, 2019
Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. The only complaint was that we left a day early because the Rustic Cabin smelled pretty badly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will look into cabin 2. You are the first to mention any issue. We are open 13 hours a day to serve you 8 am - 9 pm so let us know while you are on property. It is easier to address when we can help you while you are here. Happy Camping! Jennifer~

We loved the Swimming Mermaid cafe. Everything was very well kept....cabins, grounds, bathrooms. All in the little details. We highly recommend

This was a family trip with children that had never been camping before. We stayed in a deluxe cabin and everything was perfect. We have our first tent camping trip planned for next spring. Thanks to KOA we will be raising some outdoorsy kids.
Jul 27, 2019
Absolutely perfect and cabin was immaculate!

We absolutely enjoy our stay with KOA at Point South, SC. We travel from Ohio to Miami Florida every 3 months and staying here makes the trip easier. The cabin we stay in is always clean and they always make sure the air is on before we arrive. Not to mention the staff is outstanding!

Thank you for being a loyal guest and also a promoter of Point South KOA. We always enjoy hosting your stays, Lisa. Happy Camping until we see you again. Jennifer~

Which there was something open or still going on later at night

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are open from 8 am - 9 pm daily which is late hours for a campground. Pool is open until sunset which is mandated by SC DHEC but summer time means it is open until around 8:30 pm. Our wine tasting and beer flights 6:30 - 8 and later if you are still in there. I am wondering if you have us confused with another park. We wish you well on your travels. Jennifer~

The cabin was great. Everything was in very good condition, the staff was friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool and playground.
Jul 15, 2019
Relaxing and pleasurable as always. Usually stay there when I come to Beaufort for short fishing trip.

The cabin was nice and roomy. There is no jumping pillow, basketball court, or really any way to fish. The lake has an alligator in it and lots and lots of weeds around it so it is not good for fishing. The pool was great, the laundry room was great, bathhouse was great. The staff was great and willing to help in any way possible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Open 36 years we have never had or will have a jumping pillow. All KOA's have their own personality. We have life size chess, jenga, hopscotch, tether ball, corn hole, horseshoes, gem mining, backpack coloring, large pool, high speed wifi, 62 channels of cable. The 12 acre lake adjacent is private although we do mow it weekly there are lots of guests that do fish. We wish you well on your travels.

Thank you for being a promoter of Point South KOA. We are so glad you enjoyed our deluxe lodge, Twickenham. We wish you well on your travels and look forward to hosting your stay again if your holiday brings your back to the Low Country of SC. Jennifer~

Loved the place. Only issue was that cable and internet access was only available for a portion of the stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There was an incoming cable cut to the whole corner of Point South. Having spent 2 + hours on the phone with the provider it was finally located. Sorry for your inconvenience but it was completely out of our control. It is fixed now however does help you. Happy Travels. Jennifer ~

Greatest staff members of any place I've ever stayed at.They all deserve a raise. I'll definately be back.

Awesome staff and who knew...wine tasting and beer flights! Shirly was a bright light with her humorous and "caffeine-laden" attitude!

We had one of the lodges and it was spotless. The staff in the evening was unbelievably friendly and fun when we came down for a drink. Will definitely stop here again.

Good time
Jun 20, 2019
We stay often and always enjoy ourselves. I was disappointed not to be able to use the bathroom for 45 minutes - and also because restroom was closed an hour earlier then posted. It was closed for cleaning at 10am

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am so sorry about your inconvenience. The toilets are accessible during cleaning hour but showers have to be closed daily for sterilization. We will address the time closed issue so it lines up with the sign so that your experience and comfort is better. Happy camping! Jennifer ~

The staff,esp. Jennifer, were fantastic. She was so accommodating for my family and my brothers family. We are so thankful to her and her staff. Too bad we were there during the heaviest rain storm for three days, still made the best of it. Their wine tasting and small beer pub was a nice touch at night to go to. Haven't seen that before. Good job.

We stayed on our way to FL in a cabin. We brought our rescue dog who is not very socialized, we were worried but the staff was more than accommodating and our trip was a success. The kids enjoyed mining and coloring their back pack. It was a nice stay and nice way to recharge after a long drive.

A beautiful park with great on site wifi and utilities. Sites are gravel but level. The most thorough check-in instructions I've ever had by a super friendly staff! Only problem was a clogged sewer which can happen.

Friendly, fun campground in the woods, shielded from freeway noise. We try to plan our route back to Florida yearly to include a stop here. The staff is so nice, providing fun conversation along with wine tasting and pizza on site. They just reopened after having to evacuate for a hurricane, but that didn’t affect their southern hospitality!
