  • The Festival of Lights is only $20 a carload and is well worth it. I recommend you go after 7 pm as the parking inside the park at the gift shops are full between 6 and 7 on weekends especially. The F...  more »
  • We went through the lights shortly after they opened. It was surprisingly not overcrowded. It is a wonderful display of lights. The drive-through is nice and then you can get out to eat and visit. Whe...  more »
  • This park offers a lot for the nominal entrance fee. I am a frequent visitor and love the scenic hiking/biking trails and expansive doggy park. Don't miss their annual Holiday Festival of Lights!  more »

  • Always great, year round! There are SO many fun things to do here! The Outdoor Zone includes a giant climbing wall, a challenge course, a zip line, and a belay wall. There is campground sites available as well as cottages to rent overlooking salt marsh beds that are fun to explore. There is a giant playground, picnic areas, fully and partially enclosed gathering spaces for rent, a water park with water slides, and also a smaller splash zone area. They have a great dog park that lies along the pond that lies at the center of the park where the dogs have their own fenced area to run and play in the water along with a smaller fenced area for small dogs. You can rent kayaks and paddle boats and there are MILES of bike and jogging trails throughout. Call ahead for reservations for zip line and challenge course, and the climbing wall is closed on Mondays until Memorial Day for maintenance. At Christmas this park features a glorious Festival of Lights that attracts people from miles and miles around to see the splendor. Lots of festivals here year round, Reggae Nights is one of my favorites! Must visit if you live near, and worth the stop if you are traveling through or vacationing in Charleston. Fun in the sun!
  • We had a great time at this park. It was so much fun. There was so much to do. We are from out of town and we were just looking for a dog park to have a good place for the dog to enjoy. There was a lot of room for the dog to run unleashed and we ended up doing some trails and found out they had rock climbing. The rock climbing center was so much fun and the guy working it was very nice and informative. The next time were in the Charleston area we will definitely be back. We wish we had a park like this back home.
  • great place. bathroom/shower buildings were being renovated so we had to use our camper bathroom or go use the water park facilities which were a bit far away.but they gave us a discount so it seemed fair. it was quiet, close enough to beach and downtown Charleston. the kids really enjoyed the climbing wall.
  • The playground is always a huge hit! My children love the free Spray n Play area. There are plenty of walking paths & places to sit by the water to relax. They've got a great camp ground, a fishing dock, a rock climbing wall, a fantastic dog park with a lake and lots of other activities.
  • What a great place to take the family camping. The water park is perfect I the summer and the campground is spacious. Bath houses were clean. Sites were not to close together which always seems to be an issue when you visit a campground that has activities for the little ones ( ie ocean lakes etc.) Will definitely be going back here.
