Tent campites on the Intercoastal Waterway overlooking the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. This is a nature lovers dream. We offer primitive campsites that have access to communal water sources, power, restrooms, and shower facilities. Our campground has a full length basketball court, Pickleball Court, and swings for your enjoyment. You will have access to a floating dock for launch of kayaks into the Intracoastal Waterway. If you do not have your own kayak, we always have them for rent. There is easy access to the iconic Awendaw Passage of the Palmetto Trail, which runs directly through the property and offers hiking and off-road biking opportunities. If you love to set up hammocks, we encourage that on our many majestic Oaks and Palmettos around the property. There are also many offsite activities in the surrounding area that you can enjoy. 

Please refer to the park map in the photos.

The Flushing Toilets, Showers, and Water source is located at the Conference Center area of the property (there are portable toilets at waterfront).  You will need to bring something to store your water in. Power access is at the Conference Center and a single access point at the waterfront.  You can easily drive between the waterfront camping area and the Conference Center.

You can drive directly to the sites and park.  We do allow camper vans and small popup tents/campers.  We do not have hookups at each site so you will need to plan accordingly.  Anything over 20 feet is not allowed.

Each site has a fire ring and picnic table.  There is a communal area at the end of dock for everyone to enjoy.  The swings and basketball/pickleball court is for everyone as well (basketballs, pickleball equipment, soccer balls, footballs, and other recreation equipment are provided).

Honestly the best place I have ever camped !! My boyfriend and I drove from Ohio. We saw two dolphins, so many small crabs. Had the place to ourselves. Basketballs and footballs were provided along with a hammock that was set up! Pictures do not do this place justice. It didn’t even feel real. Thanks so much!

Stay here!! I'm a brand new solo camping traveler and I felt very safe here. The other guests were friendly and everyone I talked to said they have been staying here for years. If you want to be away from the crowds and enjoy nature this is the place to be. It will feel like you are in the middle of no where even though publix, lowes. Walmart and other retailer's are about 20 minutes down the road. There is a shower, restroom, firepit, kayak rentals, water, and amazing views right there for you to enjoy. I will definitely be visiting Charelston again and will stay here if they have availability.

Beautiful spot! Not particularly private so if you’re looking for that, this may not be your spot, but if you don’t mind sharing a campground for a beautiful view of the river and location right next to the national forest it’s absolutely perfect! Will be coming back fore sure.

This was a wonderful place to camp. It was super quiet and the waterfront was gorgeous. The campground had all of the necessities and Michelle was very friendly and helpful—pointing out trails, where to get groceries etc. We will definitely make plans to come back and will recommend this place to friends.

Stunning sunriseView from our siteView from our site.
