South Carolina exudes a sultry, subtropical air—fitting given its geography of sea islands and salt grass marshes. South Carolina campgrounds near the coast offer great beaches, golf resorts, water parks and other family vacation fun. Lovely Charleston is the queen of the Lowcountry, a historic, architecturally rich port city that’s a favorite for dining, shopping and Civil War tours: The first shots were fired on nearby Fort Sumter. The western edge of the state climbs toward the Blue Ridge Mountains, with refreshing pine forests and fishing lakes. Your RV, tent or cabin will make the perfect base camp for your South Carolina vacation!
