Additional Pet Information:
Campground is nestled inside a large county park. The campground was very nice. They have full hook up sites and also had a central bath house. Pet friendly. The laundry area is outside under a patio awning next to the bathhouse. They have an incredible Christmas lights set up throughout the park. Sorry we won't be there when they start on Nov13.
Absolutely beautiful park. They even have a shuttle to take you to the beach or in to Charleston.
James Island County Park (Charleston, SC)
I stayed here with my small dog for 4 days in January, 2014 (Wednesday - Sunday). I was able to take advantage of their 30% discount for January and February even through I didn't stay the full week. If that's not available, they also have a 10% Good Sams discount.
Site: I stayed in Site 43. This is a beautiful site adjacent to a pond. I had my own swing overlooking the water. Backing in with a 16' travel trailer was painless with the help of one of their friendly campground volunteers. I just used 30 amp hookup and had no problems. I did not use the water hookup.
Wi-Fi: The Wi-Fi was great at this site. I was able to stay connected for 8+ hours a day just on their network connection. I had two longer Skype meetings and was able to stay connected through each of them, no problem.
Verizon: At least 3 bars at all times with LTE. I did not use my phone as a hotspot, but I think it would have worked well without my booster. I was able to send text messages and make phone calls with no problem.
Location: I found the park just fine with GPS. I enjoyed being so close to Charleston and went into town nearly everyday. Most destinations were no more than 15 minutes via car which was convenient.
Bathroom/Shower: I do not use the bathroom on board my Casita, so I frequently used the nearby bathroom and shower house. It was very clean and well-stocked. The shower water was hot with good water pressure. I always used the second to last shower stall in that particular building and was always had a hot shower, no matter what time during the day. They were roomy showers with room to change. Most people seemed to use their RV facilities, so I had the bathroom to myself most of the time.
Laundry: I did one load of laundry while I was there and it worked as expected. $1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry. I was able to get quarters from the campsite store. While my laundry was running, I was able to wash my dishes in the Activity Room's sink.
Activites: I biked and ran on some of their trails. It was incredibly beautiful and well-marked. My dog also enjoyed the dog
Overall, this was a lovely, friendly park and I would definitely stay here again!
An amazing place to stay!
We've stayed at this park twice; once for 3 days and last year as workampers. It's one of the nicest RV parks we've ever stayed at.
The sites are large and many are quite private. There is a huge water park, paved walking/biking trails (about 8 miles), a climbing wall, a lake, a dog park with a special area for the smaller pups, and much more. Another plus is that it's only 6 miles from downtown Charleston (which is gorgeous) and 6 miles from Folly Beach.
It's on our "to do again" list when we're traveling up and down the east coast.
James Island is a very nice RV park. Full Hookups, shaded, nice camp store, very friendly staff. Didn't use the bath house or laundry facilities. Bike rental available, as well as ice, firewood, propane, etc. Water park very close, free splash park and playground close also. Lots of bike paths. We had a 25% off coupon which made it even nicer.
This CG is one of our favorites. Gigantic dog park with a lake. Miles of bike paths. Shaded sites. Great place to stay while touring Charleston.
