James Island County Park Campground

We have stayed at the James Island County Park Campground several times. It has full hookups, bike rentals for bike trails, a rock climbing wall, a wonderful dog park, clean bathrooms, laundry facilities, a general store, and a shuttle bus to downtown and Folly Beach. Groceries and fast food restaraunts can be found on James Island. Downtown Charleston is about 15 minutes away. The dog park is a very entertaining place, even if you don't have a dog of your own.

The Laura Walker st park near the Okeefanokee swamp is a wonderful campground. Nice sites under large pines, lake, first class golf course nearby. Fairly close to a swamp entrance.

Jekyl Island was a fun place to visit, especially if you play golf. But I liked the Laura Walker campground better than I liked the Jekyl Island campground.

We have done the lunch buffet at Paula Deen's a couple of times, and it was excellent. About $13, I think, and included fried chicken, a couple of other entrees and a number of side dishes, also dessert. Basically your dinner meal at lunch, which we like to do for a number of reasons.

Geez Louise, I thought I was doing pretty well by limiting our travel scope. Looks like we need more time to really enjoy this area! This is a great problem! Thanks again for some great suggestions.

Wait. Wait. There is required reading before you visit Savannah. "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". You will want to visit all the sights in the book. I agree with the previous post about Paula Dean's. Skip it and have lunch at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House. There will be an hour wait in line to get in but it is worth the wait. No one seems to mind. It is an experience.The trolley ride around town is very informative and you can note spots to visit along the way.Have a great trip. Those cities you will want to return to.

Great idea. I've read "Midnight in the Garden..." - one of my favorite books actually, but it has been a while - definitely worth a re-read before the trip.

The President bypassed Paula's for there. Heard Paula was not happy about it.
We agree with you 100%.....

Brad,

We camped here in May or June last year. We have the same opinion as Bill. After the big fire, most of that state highway drive off US-1 into the Okeefenokee Swamp is now open land. We had remembered that drive being forested previously. Lots of small gators at the swamp tourist site. Maybe all the big boys were in the water. Didn't see any gators at Laura Walker.

Speaking of big fires, this is probably a good time for you to camp there. Someone else already burned the place down.

Brad, check out Hunting Island SP near Beaufort. On a barrier island , the Park is fairly large with lots of easy beach access, trails , alligators, and historic lighthouse. The campground has some ocean front sites if you are lucky enough to get one. It is very tropical down there, one of our favorites.

What a timely thread this is. Wife and I will be spending 3 days in Savannah in April. I already have made reservations at Tybee Island before I read this thread. Unfortunatly we will not be able to go to Mrs. Wilkes since they are not open on the weekend. Any suggestions for bird watching in the area? The Warblers should be in full migration then.
