Discover Charleston, SC

If you are looking for a charming, quaint, living piece of history to visit this summertime, do not overlook Charleston, a premier destination and the perfect place to book an RV in Charleston County, SC. Often times called the “Holy City” due to its abundance of churches, it is the both the oldest and the largest in the sunny Palmetto State and offers up countless opportunities to enjoy yourself. With rich culture, incredible architecture, fine dining, and some of the friendliest locals you will ever encounter, Charleston is oftentimes called the most hospitable place in all the United States.

Draped in history from the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, Charleston’s subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot and humid summers, proves to be an exciting place to see no matter when you choose to visit. Explore the historic downtown with CARTA buses that service the area, making it easy for you to rent a motorhome in Charleston and park it outside the city while exploring via convenient public transit.

This marvelous locale is host to many festivals, such as the 17-day world-famous Spoleto Festival, one of America’s most popular and well-known major performing arts events. With too many art and history museums to name, and a host of minor league sports teams to support, Charleston is chock-full of activities for you and your family.

Another reason to rent a camper in Charleston is the fantastic nearby cities you can visit to round out your experience of the southern states. With Myrtle Beach to the north, Hilton Head Island to the south, and for the real adventurous, Augusta and Savannah in Georgia only a few hours away, Charleston is a fine place to kick off your RV vacation.

Explore the Outdoors

Outside the city, you will find gorgeous forests and coastal areas, and many other exciting ways to experience nature. You can visit Manchester State Forest, one of many pieces of the Palmetto Trail, which connects the mountains of western South Carolina to the sunny beaches of the east. Right next door is Poinsettia State Park, known all over the state for its scenic horseback riding trails.

To the northeast of the city, Francis Marion National Forest awaits you. Named for a Revolutionary War hero, this protected wilderness is a series of subtropical coniferous forests and wetlands containing ATV trails, boat ramps for lake access, fishing spots, mountain biking trails, and even a gun range.

For nature lovers, check out Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge and Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center, both widely considered to be top birdwatching hubs. These tidally emergent wetlands and beaches are visited each year by hundreds of migrating birds and help bring you closer to nature.

You can also head up towards Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, and visit Congaree National Park, one of the few lying east of the Mississippi River. This ancient old-growth forest containing Cypress trees and many others surrounds the Congaree River, and features a winding boardwalk zig-zagging through the majestic marshy woodlands. Congaree River also attracts many kayakers who seek to encounter stunning scenery from the comfort of their boats.

City Sightseeing

Charleston itself has so much to offer those that choose to visit this colonial city and enjoy its beauty. History lovers will find it irresistible as they navigate the tiny cobblestone streets and visiting the famous “Battery” lined with cannons, antique buildings, and plaques commemorating great events and providing information on notable landmarks, statues, and other areas of historical importance. Chief among these landmarks is the Fort Sumter National Monument, the military compound where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861. Reachable by ferry ride, this tiny island in Charleston Bay offers intriguing tours offered by park rangers that will fascinate you.

In the heart of the old city lies the Historic Charleston City Market, a massive indoor market consisting of hundreds of stalls with everything from food to jewelry, artwork, or clothing. This is a can’t-miss chance to buy your friends and family souvenirs from your vacation.

Nearby, you can visit the South Carolina Aquarium, which houses over 5,000 animals and exhibits representing each different ecosystem in the region. This aquarium is also one of relative few to have bald eagles and alligators, among other exotic types of animals not found elsewhere.

With all the sites to see loaded in to such a small relative area, you will find it impossible to be bored when you rent an RV in Charleston.

RV Parks to Visit

With three Walmart Supercenters and no shortage of inviting RV Parks, Charleston is definitely an RV-friendly city and a perfect place to experience that sweet southern hospitality.

Both KOA campgrounds in the vicinity are great options for those that would like to rent an RV in Charleston. Mount Pleasant KOA sits on an old pre-Civil War plantation and even has old fashioned wagon rides to enjoy the old scenery in style. Charleston KOA boasts an excellent location where you can visit the nearby USS Yorktown, a decommissioned aircraft now serving as a museum. This campground also has cable TV and WiFi for all guests, a pet-friendly park for pet owners, and sits next to a marvelous kid-friendly waterpark where you can beat the summer heat.

Lake Aire RV Park sits within the city near Fort Sumter and the aquarium, making it easy to ditch the RV for the day and explore the city by foot. This beautiful campground also has its very own pool, plus a lake to swim in and a playground for children.

It is highly recommended you rent a motorhome in Charleston and head on up to Buck Hall Recreation Area, which provides access to Francis Marion National Forest and Camp Romain National Wildlife Refuge, a 65,000-acre blend of wetlands, marshes, tidal creeks, and sandy beaches. This campground, complete with RV hookups and basic amenities, makes it easy to enjoy nature from the comfort of your camper.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?
