Charleston, SC camping?

Can you recommend campgrounds close to the Charleston, SC area? It seems I recall there being a few good posts here at one time. Thanks in advance ya'll.

Jim, After looking at the local parks online, that seemed to be the one I recalled reading good reviews about on this forum. Thanks so much for the confirmation. Dick

Zoom, James Island County Park is very good. Paved road , dirt site, mostly level, easy into Charleston. Take your bicycle if you can. If they happen to be full, Oak Plantation is not bad at all. Also easy acess to C-town.Never been there but Mt. Pleasant/Chareston KOA is supposidly very nice also, but across the river, not quite as convient. First choice definately JICP. John

Edisto Beach State Park. About an hour south of Charleston, but beautiful campground, close to beaches, very nice.

Thanks to all of you for the quick responses on my question and for the BBQ recommendation. Being from Texas we're pretty picky on BBQ but will give it a "Look-See" as they say. We booked James Island County Park for a couple of days on our trip and will report back on our findings. Sounds good at this point. Thanks again ya'll. Dick and Annie

James Island is nice. Close to Folly and the James Island connector will take you right downtown.

We stayed at the St James Campground last year for a weekend and really enjoyed it. Good customer service, lots to do if you have kids, and an easy drive into Charleston.

If you are coming from VA I assume you will be coming down I95. I made a post in Nov describing the route that I take when I go to Laurinburg, NC from Huger, SC.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...uth-72032.html
This is a 'back way' into Charleston. It gets you off of the interstate just north of Florence, SC. It is a nice drive, minimal traffic.
Once you get to Huger (where I live), you are just north of Mount Pleasant.
From 41 you can get on Clements Ferry Road to 526 to I26. Again, minimal traffic.

If you google map Huger, SC that shows the intersection of 402 and 41.

Or, you can shoot straight across 41 and head to Awendaw, where I think the best camping spot is. Not many diversions, but peace and quiet.. and some decent hiking (trailhead of Palmetto Trail) Buck Hall Recreation Area

About 15 miles or so on 17 there is a cool store for provisions Sewee Outpost Sewee Outpost | Your Low "Country" Store and across the street is a local favorite, Seewee Restaurant Seewee Restaurant, Awendaw - Restaurant Reviews - TripAdvisor
If you go there try the fried pickles.

I'll cast another vote for James Island County Park, which has more the flavor of an RV resort. Check the campground map when booking a reservation though as some sites have more privacy than others.
