RV Parks in Charleston

 I recently started looking into current prices on parks in the area to put my motorhome at, and I was surprised at some of the prices. There really are only just a few RV parks in Charleston and that was also kind of shocking to most who visit here. There are KOA's of course, but KOA's seem to be the most expensive and over lavished places. Yes, there are a ton of facilities at your disposal, but are the luxuries worth the price? I'm sure to some people it is, but personally, I think I could do without the pool, without the lake and boat rentals. I guess I am more into the basic no-frills type of place. But to each their own. I was just searching for a little getaway from home for the weekend but I decided against it right now, why do it when we will be doing it full time shortly. I do sleep in Gima-ta a few times a week. I just feel so good when I'm in there relaxing. I sleep so much better when I am in there, I don't wake up 5 times a night.
   It feels like I don't know what to look or yet at RV parks or how to feel them out. I will eventually learn all the ins and outs of the perfect park, but for now, it will be a learning experience. I am going to make myself a checklist so I can remind myself what to look for when I decide to take a luxury vacation from the road and hit an RV park. I know that there are a ton of amenities that you can find and a ton of money that you can pay also for those extra amenities. I am going to list the local parks here in Charleston, not that I'm going to stay at any of them, but at least I can pass on the info I have gathered.
  Almost every RV park in Charleston has the basics like picnic tables, a playground, bathrooms, wi-fi/cable, fire rings, dump station, store, showers, tent sites, pull-thru sites, propane, ice, and wood.

Here are the ones that I know about:

1. Lake Aire Campground (843)571--1271
    Located at 4375 Highway 162 in Hollywood just off of Highway 17. It is about 15 minutes from downtown with a lake which allows fishing.

2. Oak Plantation (843)766-5936
    3540 Savannah Highway south Johns Island 29455 This park has been family
owned for 40 years and does not allow tent camping.

3. James Island County Park (843)795-4386
    871 Riverland Drive James Island 29412 The ups of this one is that is located in a county park, it has a boat, kayak, and bike rentals with many trails. It has a dog park, a tidal creek with a dock, and a shuttle service to the town. And a seasonal waterpark.

4.  2 KOA's: Mt.Pleasant (843)849-5177  at 3157 Highway 17 N. 29466
                     Ladson (843)797-1045 at 9494 US 78 29456
     Both have cabins and a lake with fishing, and bike and boat rentals. Both are your
     typical KOA's.

5.  Middleton (843)696-3384
     4300 Ashley River Rd. 29414 Equestrian camping with many trails and paddocks.

6.  There are a few others located a little bit out including:
     Fain's Park
     Short Stay (military)
     Lowcountry Famcamp (military)
     Mullet Hall
     Givhans Ferry
     Buck Hall
     Tanger Woods

I hope this was a little information for anyone.
