James Island County Park Threatened!

This beautiful spot near Charleston, SC, is threatened by a political push to route a 524 bypass directly next to the park, possibly removing a couple of rows!

A gem in the lowcountry, this would completely change the peaceful nature of this place.

Do what you can.

That is a great park, stayed there last year and we are hoping to perhaps visit again next month.

We are here now, for the first time.

The place has been packed, and many on these forums are frequent fliers here. Would be a terrible shame to turn this into a noisy interstate campground, and would surely decrease interest.

They are offering a 40% discount through February for stays of 7 days or more. Nice.

I've camped there twice - it really is a great park. Sad to hear about this plan...maybe we need to get there sooner rather than later, since my wife hasn't seen it or Charleston in general. I hope this plan falls through.

Well, I'd like to see it preserved rather than destroyed. These places are important to the good life.


I talked with someone today, a long time camp host here who may have been spouting a party line, but she said the rows taken out would be tent sites and office buildings. Also that the sound barriers put up should lessen the noise to the point that it is not an annoyance. Hard to imagine, but I guess it is possible.

She also said this has been in the works for 20 years and it might be awhile longer before it came to fruition.

It was two different locals who brought this to our attention over the weekend, and they were not happy about it. Clearly feel there will be a significant impact on the campground.

Thumbs down What a shame

We stayed here in Nov and just loved the place. Enjoyed Charleston and surrounding area. The Festival of Lights was a great sight.
