This was our 1st time RV camping and staying at a Famcamp. It seems to me that we found one of the best famcamps available. We were immediately welcomed by Connie and Vic, Taken to our clean, woodsy campsite and checked in. Vic guided us into the space and explained the hook ups. Connie and Vic made sure we had everything we needed for a great visit ....even offered treats to our dog. Since we live only a couple hours away, we hope to visit Charleston famcam often.

This place just keeps getting better. Unfortunately, that also means it is getting busier! Had to stay in overflow (water and electric) the first night but were able to move to a full hook up site about 0930 the next morning. Camp hosts (Connie and Victor) did a fantastic job. As soon as people would pull out, they actually came over and cleaned up the site, blowing off the pads and even wiping down the tables. Nice size sites in a great location.

We've stayed at military campgrounds all over the US and have rarely enjoyed such a nice combination of location, hospitality and value. The campground is beautifully laid out and maintained. It's in a lovely wooded location, with large, level sites. Sites have large concrete parking slabs and interior roads are paved. Bath houses are very clean and well maintained. The hosts, Victor and Connie, are friendly, professional and helpful. At $23/night, this FamCamp is a great campground and a great value!

We own a '87 Bluebird Wanderlodge. After we arrived, my husband got me set up and had to fly back to Eglin AFB. When I returned from the airport I was promptly told by the camp hosts #1 - we had an oil leak dripping on their parking pad that must be addressed immediately. They just weren't going to have that. Her exact words. We did not have a leak at our home as we park our bus on our own concrete pad. Do you think we'd just allow that to not be addressed at our own home that we maintain meticulously? Obviously, something had occurred unnoticed during our 3 day drive up. The time was 1900, nothing was open except Shopette. I had two aluminum pans in my bus that I secured under the bus, purchased Reynolds Wrap and duck tape. I crawled under the bus handling the minor leak issue with the camp host watching although she did help me retrieve two rocks to weigh down pans. . As we engaged in conversation later she also told me that #2 often times Campgrounds don't allow old buses into their facility due to leaks such as ours. Do you not think that new coaches have unexpected leak issues? Was this a hint of what was to come? #3. My dog cried while I was on my errands. Was that too disturbing? #4. They saw my husband spray off the front of bus. That would be $10 extra for a bus wash. Could they have mentioned that to him and not stressed me out with one thing or another? Needless to say, my stomach was in knots not knowing what was coming next. When we pulled out 4 days later heading to Myrtle Beach my husband moved the coach forward, removed my temporary oil pans and Reynolds wrap/duck tape. Drippings on their concrete pad were minimal. Nothing atrocious. Now, remember we're returning after our Rally for a few weeks as we hsve family in the area. On our way to Myrtle Beach, about 5 miles from the FamCamp my husband noticed diesel oil on our back window. Pulled over and found an issue with a line on the generator. We promptly addressed this up the road at an Ace Hardware where my husband repaired it on site. See pictures. Now we arrive at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach. I receive a call from Famcamp Camp host telling me we are "banned" from the FamCamp until issue is fixed. That Outdoor Rec personnel had issued this banned status due to the mess our old bus made on their concrete pad not just from an engine area oil leak but also all over an area where the back of the bus was parked. What am I to say? Upset, speechless I just accept what they say and hang up!!! We surmised that the generator issue began as we pulled out and perhaps spilled desire oil. How were we to know? They gave me no chance to explain and we've been kicked out, our plans to see our grandkids for the next few weeks in CHS are off and we will head home. BY THE WAY, I even purchased a very large and thick tarp to put under the bus if it was needed and believe me if there was a major leak toward the back of our bus while it sat for 4 days on their pad I WOULD HAVE NOTICED. I walked my dog a tleast 25 times during the stay so that is a true statement. Special note: we are here at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach. No leak on pad AT ALL. That's the story. The truth. Our experience!!! Home bound we will be. No comment otherwise as we feel disheartened and humiliated. . Theresa

Great experience! The campsite has exceptional amenities, large/level concrete pads, shade, low sewer hookups, convenient to Exchange and Commissary, about a 25 minute drive to downtown Charleston. Best part were the Camp Hosts, knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, but not intrusive. The bath houses and grounds were spotless and super clean, all the infrastructure worked well. We were worried when first arrived because the main campground was full and we had to go to the overflow sites w/o sewer hookup for one night. The camp hosts were able to juggle to accommodate everyone to their satisfaction in spite of a heavy influx of campers, the no reservation policy does work! This is the best campground we have used in our years of camping.

Our first visit for 2 nights. A nice wooded area park. It was full, but we were able to get a paded tent site with electric and water. The camp hosts were great! The showers were large, nice and immediate hot water. This park does not take reservations, but they will find you a spot. There is another park at the Navy weapons station that will take reservations. We did a drive by and this park wins hands down.

I'm not sure what I can add that hasn't already been said about this campground, it is really one of the best maintained parks I have ever stayed at. We only stayed overnight as we were just passing through, but will be back to stay for a while and take advantage of the facilities. i also want to mention the folks that checked us in were very friendly and helpful.

Can't say enough good things about this place.  The hostess was very nice and helpful.  Easy access through the Aviation Ave / Perimeter Road North gate (right hand lane with x-ray machine).  Pull through site was excellent, and all amenities in excellent condition.  Walk to Golf Course and club grill, or use fitness trail and picnic/play ground facilities nearby.  Although the $23/night seems high, you can't beat that in this area.  Will definitely be back.  CAFB is tops!

This was our first experience with a military campground with our RV. Very nice location, great hosts! There seems to be quite a few "long term" inhabitants, but everything is kept nice and tidy. Access to the base facilities is extremely easy! We will stay here again!

I rated all fives based on other reviews since we did only a drive thru. It rained several inches the day before so numerous sites with or without RV's were covered in water. Some had several inches of water and the road in the new section was under water on one side. Some sites the water was so deep the sewer hook was not visible. The new section sits lower than the old section and woods around those sites were flooded. Quite a few sites were open which was surprising this time of year or maybe it was due to the flooding.

Visiting Charleston, SC in the autumn is always a “must” for us. The weather is great, but most importantly, we visit many of the historic sites and great restaurants in the Charleston and surrounding area. We have been here numerous times and always attempt to stay at the JB Charleston RV Park. We will not attempt to describe the good or bad things about the RV Park; that info is covered fairly well in other posted reviews. We are not sure if we can add any meaningful information to what is already posted. However, there are a couple of things we would like to mention about the JB. First, the base has great paved walking/running paths. You can go from the RV Park to the gate that you entered with an RV and back to the RV Park – a round-trip distance of about 1.5 miles or you can extend that distance by not taking the short-cut into the RV Park. If you left the RV Park and went in the opposite direction from the gate, you can experience an enjoyable 3.2 mile route. The second point we want to mention is the small memorial park that is very close to the RV Park. The memorial park is dedicated to airmen that have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. We always visit the park and pay our respects to the fallen heroes. There are three “retired” transport aircraft on static display in the Park. Those aircraft always bring back memories of the “good ole days”. Our stay at JB Charleston is always rewarding to us. The RV Park provides an excellent location and amenities at a reasonable cost. We look forward to returning in years to come.

This was our first visit to Charleston AFB and will not be our last. The Camp Host, Bob, met us as we pulled in and apologized that he had to put us in the overflow area for a couple of days. Let me say, the overflow area is nicer than some RV Parks we have stayed in. Bob directed us to our site and said he would be back shortly to register us. After getting set up and settled in, Bob came over and registered us and continued to apologize for having to put us in overflow. Bob provided us with all sorts of information on Charleston and said that the 9 days were going to be there would not be enough time to take in every thing, and he was right. Bob assured us that he would have us in a FHU site in a couple of days and true to his word, after only 2 nights in overflow, he moved us to a pull thru site, site #22, with FHUs. This Famcamp is very clean and so are the bath houses and laundry. As soon as a camper leaves the grass is cut and trimmed and blown clean. The sites are large with concrete pads and almost new picnic tables. There is no CATV, but TV reception is excellent. The WIFI was great in overflow, but not so good back in the campground. The BX and Commissary are close and very well stocked. The golf course is next to the campground and serves a very good breakfast. While there, I visited the Personnel Flight for a new ID Card (turning 65 in June) and the folks there were very accommodating. The above directions are spot on and going thru the x-ray was not a hassle. We will visit this Famcamp again.

Just passing through, wished we could have stayed more. The policy is no one is turned away. We were put into the overflow lot, but it was OK. Had electric, and water, wifi and good overall TV reception. The bathhouse wasn't too far away, and our waste water tanks were empty, because the last stop had full hook ups. Make sure to use the back gate and stay to the right for the X-ray machine.

Great RV Park with paved roads, level concrete pads, 20/30/50 amp, water and sewer hookup (no cable) very limited WIFI. Really nice walking/biking path which is lighted and hard surface. The walk path has exercises you can do along the way. There are a number of pieces of outdoor exercise items on the back side of housing on the path which were a lot of fun using. The exchange and commissary are close by as is the base gas station, no diesel pump though. Bath house was up to date and kept very clean during our visit has 3 washers and dryers which costs $1.25 per load. The hosts Allen and Kristy were helpful and genuinely nice folks. Out Door Recreation is on the way into the RV area but they do little to facilitate campers, this falls on the camp host. The folks at Out Door Recreation were nice and offered any help we might have needed. We heard Jets but not terribly loud also heard the train but they weren't that loud either, not enough to be bothered anyway. Overall excellent experience and highly recommended, I will visit again.

J.H. left this review using the Directory software: Excellent FamCamp!! Paved sites with utilities laid out exactly as they should be. Host (Allen) was very helpful! It rained yesterday somewhat but really let loose last night. When I looked out this morning many of our other sites are ONE BIG POND! Evidentially, they have zero storm drains. Fortunately, I brought my high top rubber boots. Users of Charleston should be forewarned of this and be prepared to don their waders!

Excellent RV Park with paved roads, level concrete pads, close proximity to PX, commissary, golf (walking distance), and all other amenities expected at a full service installation. No Cable, Wi-Fi…needs some work. We could see the repeater antennas for Wi-Fi but still no joy. We had a pull through site located a short distance to the clean and well maintained bath house that provide seemingly endless hot water. When arriving see the camp host who will find you a site. Out Door Recreation does little to facilitate campers. Our host was OUTSTANDING! He took the time to provide an overview of the area, attractions, maps, base facilities, and recommendations etc. Folks at Out Door Recreation were great. I had a 5th Wheel tire that was in need of air (110 psi) and the average gas station pump won’t do it. They loaned me a portable air compressor! Use the back gate via I-26. GPS will try and take you to the front gate...not the way you want to go if possible. North Charleston’s location (right off of I-26) provides quick travel to historic downtown and plantations. Overall excellent experience and highly recommended.

One of the cleanest and quietest RV parks I have been at. They just raised the price to $23.00 a night. Only a 30 minute drive to the beach. I will stay again if in the area. The host was very nice. I stayed for three nights.

Mid October, 2014

We stopped there on our way south and ended up staying three or four nights I'm writing this a couple of weeks after the fact. They were full when we pulled in but put us in the tent area overnight and moved us to full hook-up the next day. The hosts were friendly and helpful and we finally found the elusive Air Force Frequent Camper packet. Beware though, we got the last one so if you are headed there you might want to call ahead to see if they re-ordered. ;-) We enjoyed our stay there and though a couple of people grumped to us about the number of "homesteaders", everyone kept a nice site and as long as a campground can accommodate both short-term and long-term folks, I personally don't have a problem with it. ;-) We will go back there and probably stay longer next time.
