This was our first time camping at a Mil campground and this place was great. No fire rings at the sites but there is a community one we used and made friends. Close to attractions and the staff at the Outdoor Rec center were very helpful and provide lower costing tickets to attractions. If you are going downtown to walk around I suggest you go the The Landing to eat and you can park next to it for $5 or $10 if you don't eat there. Still cheaper than anywhere!

Our overall experience could have been better; the young girl at the check-in desk seemed inexperienced and was not very professional, did not give us code for bathrooms and by the time we realized we needed a code the office was closed (we had to ask other campers for the code). We had asked at check-in if we could have a pull through site, was told none were available, however for the whole 3 days we were there 4 of the pull throughs were empty???, After difficulty with the 50 amp service on our back in site, they did finally give us a pull through, but the other pull throughs sat empty. We would also like to advise folks about the shooting/firing range noise, which on a couple occasions lasted until 10 pm. Entrance from commercial gate is easy. Convenient to commissary and exchange. Stopped by Thrift Store, people were very friendly.

Nice Famcamp, easy to get into and out of once on base. You will hear the aircraft, and trains and cars throughout the night and the shooting range adjacent to the the camp started up at 5am. As previously reported, if you want a quiet, relaxing place to unwind, this is not the place; Summer nights would likely be better with the air conditioners drowning out the outside noise. Traffic is significant off base getting to and from I-26 and we found drivers to be pretty rude and in a hurry to get places. We came in with a 41ft Motorhome and Toad; just stay calm and be patient. Really great restaurants all around Charleston and some great historic sights to see. Check in on the phone was easy and we met the Host as she was always active around the park.

Typical of a military base campground, it's very clean and the sites are moderately spaced. Of course, also typically military, it's not a campground for serenity and quiet - it's very near the runway, and its shooting range must be close as I heard live fire yesterday. But military people don't mind such things. What I do mind is the lousy wifi reception. It's not that big a CG so there's no excuse for not upgrading its wifi.

We originally had a 7-day reservation. 5 days into our reservation, the FamCamp closed due to COVID-19. However, they allowed anyone already in the FamCamp to stay until they opened again. If we left, we wouldn't be able to return. Following the "stay at home" guidelines, we decided to stay put. We live in our motorhome, so this was a new home base for awhile. The camp hosts were very friendly and we saw them everyday. Although they weren't working anymore, since the campground was closed, they kept us informed of what was happening. The office, restrooms, and laundry were closed, but we still had full hook-ups. We mostly stayed and shopped on base at first. After a month or so, they stopped letting retired military use the commissary except on the weekends. It was a zoo! We decided to start shopping off-base. Although we couldn't travel, we enjoyed our extended visit here. We did get to do a little self-guided sight-seeing in town. The state parks in Virginia and Pennsylvania started to open again in mid-May, so we decided to move on then. We'll be back, someday!

Construction in progress at the FamCamp limited the # of pull through sites. Was a little worried when we arrived and Camp Host (wonderful by the way) told us we had to use a back-in site. With a 44' Fiver Toy Hauler, we anticipated the worst but experienced the best. Long, level concrete pad in the shade of a couple beautiful old oaks, full hookups with updated connections. Easy access to major thoroughfares, close to commissary and BX. A perfect base camp to explore the Low Country and all Charleston has to offer. Plus, you can't beat the value, $23/night for a modern, well maintained FHU site. BZ JB Charleston!

We stayed at JB Charleston while visiting our son and family in North Charleston. This is a wonderful campground with clean, well-maintained sites and facilities. The staff was most helpful and friendly. Convenient to the Commissary and Exchange. We will definitely be staying here again on our future visits.

This is an immaculate campground with paved, level sites (many of them pull-thru). Restrooms and showers very clean and modern. Easy to maneuver (we’re 35’ with toad), friendly staff. Sorry it’s raining because I’d love to have dinner on the patio. Great place for exploring the Charleston area. We will definitely be back.

Second time here at JB Charleston and everything was great. The only very minor issue was no camp host when we arrived. Pleased we had an idea of parking but everything else was great. Highly recommend this RV site, and will definitely be back.

The facilities are great for what they have. There is no cable provided, and satellite service is a big problem due to the tree canopy over almost all the sites. However, the wifi is overall very good, and perhaps to compensate for the lack of cable and satellite, they permit streaming, and even have the bandwidth to do that with no problem. The only drawback is that you have to log in each day, and 24 hours later your session is cut, requiring you to log in and watch a Honda commercial before proceeding. Overall a very nice campground, very friendly host and staff. We notified the host that we'd want a long term stay when possible. A couple of sites opened up after a week, and we relocated our rig. The turn required for the first site was just too tight for our F-350 dually longbed and our 43' Bighorn, but the second site worked out OK. We've had a couple of rainshowers since our arrival, but no sustained heavy rain yet, so we don't know how the sites are for flooding concerns. This is definitely the low country so that's always something to consider. I'll post an update after we've been here longer.

This FamCamp has been on our bucket list for years. There are two sections the old and new. We happen to get into slot #20 in the new section. The site is flat and level. The sewer hookup is the best in a long time, easy and simple. Water pressure is at 60 PSI. There are bike paths to ride and the base has a commissary and BX. The base is beautiful. The camp host was such a nice lady, her name is Betsy and she will help you with anything you need. I think there is only camp host on duty every day and she is worth her weight in gold! The bath house is nice but no AC. Also there are washers and dryers, cost is $1.25 per load and no AC. This is a good stopping point to go down town Charleston and par take in all the good food and the history. Sign up for a walking tour. Good Seafood but, due to being a tourist destination the prices are expensive. Now for the bad. Each morning at 7am there are loud speakers right over the FamCamp “revelry ” and the National Anthem. On our first morning I nearly jumped out of my bed, it was so loud it scared me. Then at 4pm there is the “National Anthem” Then at 10pm Retreat. The FamCamp is right across the street from the airport and its non stop with flights. Also there is a gun range. The noise level here alone is off the richter scale, so if you are sensitive, this is not for you. Additional when you reserve here, they say its only 14 days, but in the old section there are long term folks. One lady had been there 6 months and she was retired. I get so unnerved over the politics and games that the Military parks play and allow certain people to homestead and others not. There are only 37 sites, 7 overflow and 6 tent sites. I heard from one guest he complained to the Base Commander and was asked to leave the next day. Please follow the instruction to get here as it allows for Large RV to get into the base. Also you do not have to go through the X-ray machine. That is only for commercial trucks,

This has become one of our favorite campgrounds. Our home base is Myrtle Beach, and we have family that lives in the Charleston area. JB Charleston is the ideal place to stay to see all that Charleston has to offer. All campsites have concrete pads, and offer both back-in and pull-thru site parking. The campground hosts are some of the best we've run across in our military campground travels, and they keep the campground looking great. The base is easy to get to by taking Aviation Blvd off of I-26, and using this back gate makes it easy to get to all points Charleston.

This park was a perfect 3-day stop for us to visit friends and tour Charleston. The camp site host was very accommodating. The site was clean and the hookups worked great. The park is located within in a 15-minute distance from a downtown. The wifi was awesome! Considering the location and the extra peace of being in a gated community (on a military base), this is a good value. We would certainly return to this park.

We used the West Hill Blvd gate off of 642. No problem but the camp host said that sometimes RVers are asked to turn around and use the other gate. Good advice. Great campground but my only comment is the noise. Obviously, this is beyond the control of management but just so you'll know. The campground is adjacent to an busy airport so you hear jets coming and going from 6am till 10pm. You will hear reville at 7am and taps at 10pm over the base loudspeakers. During our stay, there was an active pistol range firing at 5am. Not complaining but if you are looking for "peace and quiet" this may not be for you. We'll be back.

OUTSTANDING! The campsites are beautiful and we had plenty of room. The Camp Host was the best we ever encountered. She was helpful and worked with everyone to solve problems and followed through (one of the rigs had a mechanical problem and she worked with them to keep them in place until it could get fixed to be safely moved). We cleans the sites between campers...even wiping down the electrical boxes and checking everything out. The bath houses are spotless. Her husband (who is still active duty, she is the Host) comes home and hand mows to keep things neat. I have seen the two of them out at 10p on the golf cart helping out the campers. Excellent care, beautiful campground, next to the Outdoor Rec/Tickets (which is also outstanding), who could want more? Highly recommend it!

RV park is great. Paved roads, level sites. New section is where we stayed. Many upgrades since our 2007 trip, even in the old section. Location would be a 5 if the traffic in and out of Charleston was not so terrible. RV park has no control over this issue, but it is an issue. They seem to be building new ways in and out of town. Hopefully this will make it easier. When you are on a peninsula, you only have so many options. There are lots of poison ivy vines in this famcamp. There is no reason to let this stuff take over. That's your 3 in cleanliness. Security police told me I didn't have to go through the X-ray with a retired ID card.
