  • This is a wonderful campground to stay at. It is well maintained, family friendly love the fact that there is so much shaded sites and that there is so much to do for the kids. Would highly recommend!
  • This park has something for everyone. The dog park has access to a lake. The kids playground has lots of neat stuff for the kids to play on. There is a water park but it's seasonal so check for open times. There's also a climbing wall and miles of paved paths. The marsh and wooded vistas are beautiful. One of my favorite outdoor places.
  • Beautiful county park on James Island. Lots of walking trails, kids playground, water park (additional admission fee), dog park, and home to the Charleston Festival of Lights during the Christmas season. My family really enjoyed renting kayaks at park.
  • Really nice park! Great shaded bike paths to ride and walk. There is fishing in several locations, large play areas for kids, and a water park. The best part was...drumroll....There Were NO MOSQUITOS!
  • Love kayaking here...biking too because the trail is great. Plan to camp soon here and waterpark is a bonus. A gem on James Island!

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
