R.M. left this review using the Directory software: - stayed just one night was met by camp host T. helped with some information but did not receive a package as stated by prior persons comments. stayed in overflow which is fine as it has electric and water. campground could use cable tv. the base clubs or other places do not have delivery to the campground which would be nice after driving a long day. a list of food places from off base would help also. arriving at the gate I was not aware that you had to go through a vehicle x-ray machine. military guard was helpful in getting us turned around so we could go through the machine but the paid security person was not all that friendly or helpful. we have never had to go through an xray before and the guards should be more understanding. back to campground, it is very nice and clean and next to the rec area and golf course (golf course grill serves breakfast and lunch). outdoor rec should be open on saturdays not just weekdays. a better sign on roadway showing where to turn to famcamp is needed.

A great place to stay. The sites in the short term area were nicely setup to allow easy access to the water, electric and sewer hookups. Plenty of room on the concrete pad for our 32' trailer and truck. Still had room to walk around the trailer without stepping out into the dirt/sand area when it rained. Our welcome by "T" and Karen was the best we have ever had at any campground in over 15 years of camping. They provided an overview of the area plus recommendations on sights to see and restaurants. Throughout the stay, T and Allen were great hosts. We were fortunate to extend one additional week since there were some open spots when our initial 2 weeks were up. So much to do and see in the area. The only downside was the intermittent WIFi. The other recommendation was when we arrived it was rush hour off base and exiting I-26 at Ashley phosphate road was a challenge with a trailer. I would recommend going a few miles further on I26 east bound to aviation blvd and exit to the right toward the airport then turning on perimeter road from there. Much easier! Finally, the bathroom and laundry facilities were readily available and exceptionally clean.

This was our first trip ever... brand new travel trailer.... total newbies! We are so happy we picked this facility for our maiden voyage. "T" and Allen were very gracious campground hosts and helped us immensely with questions and "issues" with our new RV. The campground and facilities were VERY clean. We did find the WiFi signal to be a little weak, especially at peak usage times. Joint Base Charleston (ex Charleston AFB) is a great facility - small, modern, never congested. There is, of course, noise from the C-17's based there and adjacent Charleston Airport. We also grew accustomed to the daily reville, retreat and taps played over the loudspeaker system (M-F). The sounds of freedom! As others have noted, the Moultrie area is for long term campers, up to one year. Can't say as we agree with folks staying that long but someone in a much higher pay grade than us makes that decision! If you are active like us you will love this area. We rode our bikes and roller bladed on JB Charleston and rode bikes at the Marrington Multi-Use Trail near the JB Charleston Weapons Station (awesome 13-mile mountain bike trail thru woods and marsh...). We kayaked on Shem Creek in nearby Mount Pleasant. We also put our kayaks in on Foster Creek within the Marrington Multi-Use area but did not stay out long - LOTS of alligators! We are experienced kayakers but were not comfortable with so many of those critters around. Bottom line - great campground, great area! Even if the campground is full they will find someplace for you to stay. Thanks "T" and Allen for all of our help! The Yank & The Brit

This was our first stop at the JB Charleston FamCamp, but it won't be our last. The campground is nice and clean. They do have one section for long term stays, but the other half is only for short term. There were still a few site available during our visit. We arrived without a reservation, but were quickly met by "T" and Karen. Great hosts! They made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. it was impressive that they had a huge packet of information on the Charleston area prepared for each new camper. The restroom and showers were very clean. Although they have WiFi, we didn't use it. Our Verizon and AT&T worked fine with 4G. Since this was a short visit, we plan to return again in a couple months, when we'll have more time to explore the area.

I have stayed at only a handful of military campgrounds, but I can’t imagine that they could get much better than this one. The first impression is established by the hosts, who go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Wes spent at least 15 minutes with me explaining the base facilities and what was available to retirees, even getting as specific as what night was spaghetti night at the mess hall. The area is immaculate, which one should expect at a military facility, but which you often don’t see at civilian facilities. The shower/restrooms are spotless and indicate the level of attention that the hosts pay to taking care of visitors. The roads, buildings, and other physical plant items were all in good repair and well cared for. My wife and I were in Charleston for a quilting seminar downtown, so I got to spend my ample leisure time at the campground. While at the base I got a new ID card, shopped at the BX and Commissary, and enjoyed the flea market that was held at the area right beside the campground. We were traveling home via Asheville, NC, and I bought tickets for the Biltmore Estate right at the Recreation Center on base. It saved us about $15 per ticket. Downtown Charleston is about a 15-20 minute drive, and the downtown streets are crowded, with both vehicles and pedestrians. I was concerned about ensuring that we would have a space, because Joint Base Charleston doesn’t take reservations. However they did tell me, “We never turn anyone away.” They have an overflow parking area where you can stay if the campground is full. Fortunately for us, it wasn’t. Great campground, run by great people. What more could you want?

I'd say the campground is first class with spacious concrete parking pads with 50amp full hook-ups Although the camp WIFI signal is strong, I had difficulty in connecting. Perhaps it has been set to limit the number of connections. Anyhow the Verizon cell signal is an excellent 4G. I was able to easily stream video on it. The sites are partially wooded, but I was also able to easily get Dish satellite signal. When we arrived at about 4PM, the camp host escorted us to the site and provided an outstanding area orientation on the base and the surrounding area (also providing some handouts on area tourist attractions). All-in-all excellent service.

L.S. left this review using the Directory software: - Wes, the camp host was exceptional. He brought brochures of things to see in the area, explained all the hours and drew on the map to make sure we knew where the BX and commissary were, etc. The park was spotless and so was the laundry room. I think Wes had a hand in keeping everything so neat and clean. Nice pull thrus, lovely park.

Very good facility "once you get there". Follow instructions to back gate or you'll be directed to it if you try the Front Gate. The local traffic is always a challenge and after a long day on the road calls for special alertness. I am from Charleston and know the traffic situation up close. Recommend visitors arrive before "quitting time" or much later. Lane changing may require a little aggressive behavior :-)...Once on base, the relief is immediate after the first drink.

T.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Wes, the host was super. He provided us with a wealth of local information. I was concerned about the "no reservation" policy that they may be full and I'd be stuck. However, Wes assured me that even if the sites were full that he would have found room even if it required dry camping until a site opened. Nice to know there is little risk of being turned away after a long drive. The campground is really nice. The pads are large and include a patio. This is one of the best.

Great famcamp. The host escorted us to our site and then proceeded to give us a great briefing on the park, base and local area. The sites were great, long cement pads with plenty of elbow room. About the only negitive is the water drainage leaves a lot to be desired. We had a good rain one afternoon and water was over an inch deep on our site and deeper in other places. After about 24 hours, all the water was gone but made for a mess initially. You would think the drainage would of been well designed since the area see's a lot of rain each year. The park is near the rec center with a lot of things to do on base and the interstate is easy on easy off. We had a great time exploring Charleston area. We only wish we could of been here longer. We stayed here in a 5th wheel and will stay here again when in the area.

Great famcamp. The host escorted us to our site and then proceeded to give us a great briefing on the park, base and local area. The sites were great, long cement pads with plenty of elbow room. About the only negitive is the water drainage leaves a lot to be desired. We had a good rain one afternoon and water was over an inch deep on our site and deeper in other places. After about 24 hours, all the water was gone but made for a mess initially. You would think the drainage would of been well designed since the area see's a lot of rain each year. The park is near the rec center with a lot of things to do on base and the interstate is easy on easy off. We had a great time exploring Charleston area. We only wish we could of been here longer. We stayed here in a 5th wheel and will stay here again when in the area.

Wes, the camp host, was wonderful. He showed us to our campsite and while we were hooking up he was busy blowing the tree leaves off of our pad and washing the picnic table and benches. He had a welcome packet ready with the base map and information as well as local attractions. The laundry room and bathrooms were very clean and new. Although you have to go around the perimeter of the base to get to the back gate, the campground is tucked into a great location next to a walking path and several outdoor activities like ball diamonds, golf course, and playground. The REC office is located at the entrance of the campground with lots of extras that can be rented like a rock climbing wall, campers and even power wheels for the kids. They also sell tickets to local tourist attractions at a discount. This is a top notch campground with attention to detail!

What a great job they did on expanding this campground. Sites are large and interior roads are good. Talked to folks staying there and not a negative comment about anything and several mentioned how great Wes was without us asking so this means a lot. I like the clearly stated length of stay rules and yes I do mention this frequently but it gives us all a chance to decide where we want to stay and we know up front what the rules are. I also believe this would be a strong contender if Campers Choice was still being done.

We only stayed 3 nights but what a prime spot for being a tourist. Everything is within a reasonable driving distance. Wes was a great host and gave us so many brochures with so many options. He came right over to our site after he got back from an outing and checked us in. If we ever come back this way, this will be on top of our list of places to stay. Almost hate to go.

If there was a 6 star rating this Famcamp would get them from me accross the board. I stayed here for 2 weeks while at CHS for my annual tour. I have a large rig and it fit with room to spare. Everything is as clean and level as in any high dollar rv resort I have ever seen. Wes is an incredible host. All that you can read about him below is true. I know they are not doing the Campers Choice awards this year but since they completed the remodel of this park back at the beginning of the year, I know for my vote this park is beating the 5 time east coast winner hands down.
