Staff was wonderful. Didn't realize that when arriving at an "off" time we should check assignments at entrance to camp, so we selected one of the vacant overflow sites we were assigned. Turned out to be the wrong one. No problem says the staff, we'll just rearrange the assignments since all four sites were exactly the same. Two days later a very irate and insistent customer comes in demanding the particular site we were in. To make a long story short, the staff were very apologetic and made us a very generous refund offer if we would move. No problem, we did it, it wasn't that big a deal and all these sites were equal. The overflow sites have power and water. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit to JB Charleston AFB and our first time visiting Charleston. We loved both of them. The Famcamp was clean, well-maintained, and all facilities worked well. The campground hosts met us upon arrival, guided us to our site and gave us a very informative briefing on the base and Charleston. I thought that was wonderful. We appreciated and used the information. The campground itself was in great shape and the area facilitated walking our dogs in wide open areas. One does have to appreciate aircraft noise to stay here as it is a very active AFB and the campground is quite close to the runway. Didn't bother us but I could see how some could find the noise annoying. Getting in and out of the base was easy but you and your RV will go through a x-ray machine to get in so don't be surprised by that. We wanted to do dinner at the base club but contrary to their website dinner was not available Friday night. Charleston is a true gem of a city and well worth a visit. Being at the base it took us maybe 15 minutes to get downtown. Parking is a challenge downtown with a large truck on a beautiful Friday in April, so we recommend getting downtown early. All in all though we had a great visit to a very nice campground. Plan on spending a few days here to see Charleston. We allocated just one full day and it was not nearly enough. We will be back. Going back for us is made easier by the fact that JB Charleston Famcamp takes reservations, unlike a number of other AFB Famcamps. Kudos to them for that policy. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

An awesome RV park with mature trees. Be sure to enter the back gate you the airport if you're driving a big rig. Also, the signs for the RV park are not well-posted and as it is off the road a bit, this can be confusing. Our site was a back in which was easy even with my big class A. Easy access to beautiful downtown Charleston (about 15 minutes) and surrounding area. The RV park is located near a big playground and open field which was great for my ten year old and my big dog liked playing fetch in the field. This is a little tight to maneuver a big rig though but totally doable if done slow and easy. Hookups were well-appointed and water pressure was in the 50s. It rained a ton while we were there but site remained dry. Great little RV park that we will stay at again. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We booked a site here for about a week. We needed to extend and sites were very limited as two big week-end events were happening over the days we needed to extend. (The AFB Open House and the Citadel graduation). Luckily, the camp host while we were there, is a wonderful, caring and very competent host. She always found a space for us to stay somewhere in the campground. The campground is one of the best we have stayed at. Most sites are paved with full hook-ups. I would definitely return to this park anytime I am in the Charleston area. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Best Air Force Famcamp we have seen! Should be the example for the rest of the Air Force campgrounds! Clean, level, concrete pads, problem free utilities. Reservations allowed, full time camping NOT allowed. Even base assigned personnel are not allowed to camp unless on leave. Only negative comment would be noise from the small arms range, but even that was only occasional. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

It's right outside Charleston lots and lots to do. Only a few miles away is the "North Charleston Fire Museum", well worth a visit. A really fine collection of restored fire apparatus and many educational displays.

Well maintained, clean campground with level sites. Excellent camp hosts. Easy in and out, and well priced. We love military famcamps. Would definitely return. No problem for our 42.5' 5th, and no problem getting in with no reservations. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very well maintained park however the noise factor is terrible due to aircraft traffic, the nearby gun range, trains and the base PA system. These go on all day and most of the night. Make sure to have waterproof boots to wear for days after heavy rains. Add to these things the highest nightly fee we have paid at any military campground and it is unlikely that we will stay here again. The good is that the hosts are great and the Charleston historic district is nearby. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

It is neat as a pin. The campground is laid to out perfect specifications. Each campsite is exactly the same and it is spotless clean. Sites all have the same amount of room (which is plenty). The WiFi (we were site #22) is excellent and so is the Verizon cell service. There is no cable.

The campground host is wonderful and always around. You can pay $10 and wash your camper and/or truck on site. At 0700 they play Reville over the loud speaker system, at 1650 they play the National Anthem, and at 2200 they play Taps. The only bad thing about this park is the noise. It is right next to the AFB flight line so the planes are loud. It is also right next to the firing range where the troops go and shoot their weapons all at the same time for like 3 minutes, stop, do it again and so on for an hour or so. Somewhere nearby are train tracks. So it is non-stop noise from about 0700 to about 2200. We don't hear anything during the wee hours.

We would stay there again. The noise is all before our bedtime so, although annoying, it wasn't too bad. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here four years in a row. It is a very good campground with excellent camp hosts who take very good care of the grounds and their customers. This year, the mosquitos are horrible even though they have sprayed. Also, contrary to the listing above, there is no wifi. The aircraft noise and noise from the gunnery range are downers as well. Even with all that, we will be back. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been here three years in a row and stayed at least a month each time. Campground is clean and spacious. Camp hosts could not be better. The only downside other than aircraft noise, which we get used to, is that the wifi does not work at all in the campground. We will have been here a month this trip and the only way we can get online is to go to the MWR office with the laptop or tablet. Tv is over the air and leaves much to be desired but Charleston has so much to do and eat, we don't miss tv. We camped at JB Charleston Low Country FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second stay at this park and we will be back. Everything works and the camp hosts are friendly and helpful. Since it is located very near the runway used by both commercial airlines and military aircraft, there is noise. Otherwise it would be a solid 10.
