The Great Outdoors

When you rent an RV near Oak Plantation Campground, you'll be near lots of parks and recreation areas. At Givhans Ferry State Park, you can see some fabulous wildlife, catch a glimpse of the stunning Edisto River from atop the copper marl limestone bluffs beside it, and search for neat fossils and other treasure in the ancient ocean deposits on-site. Picnicking, fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, and camping are part of the fun when you arrive to play, with a park store, playground, and volleyball courts to make use of during your visit too.Another park worth checking out when you book an RV in Charleston County is Poinsett State Park. This magnificent ecosystem has snakes, lynx, alligators, and other local species of wildlife that call it home. Much like Givhans Ferry State Park, you can hike around and find some ancient remnants of another era embedded in the ground, providing more evidence that the area was once under the sea.Francis Marion National Forest is located on the other side of Charleston to the north of the historic city, covering an impressive swath of land by the coast. Named for Francis Marion, a guerilla warfare general during the Revolutionary War, this incredible forest is full of subtropical, coniferous forest and a mix of swampland, wetlands, and prairies. It perfectly exemplifies the nature of coastal South Carolina.If you want to see the state’s lone national park, head off toward the state capital, Columbia, to experience Congaree National Park. Ancient old-growth forests, scenic walkways and boardwalks, and thousands of miles of streams and waterways make this a unique place to explore on your own. Whether on foot or in a kayak or canoe, Congaree National Park has tons of neat scenery and wildlife to see or photograph.

City Sightseeing

It will come as no surprise that the best place to get some sightseeing in when you rent an RV near Oak Plantation Campground is Charleston. Only a few minutes’ drive east, this charming, historical city dates back centuries with a long legacy, as well as an impressive roster of historical sites.

A short ferry ride is all it takes to get to this fantastic attraction, where the opening battle of the Civil War was waged. Learn about the Confederate sneak attack that caught the Union off guard, munitions and weapons that were stolen, and the implications of this battle. Learn from the park rangers while you tour this old fort, and see real cannons and artifacts from the battle.South Carolina Aquarium is a family-friendly place with a menagerie of undersea creatures on display. There are even a few land animals at this epic institution, like alligators, turtles, and bald eagles, among other things. See alien-like jellyfish or take part in monthly events like the after-hours celebration when the aquarium is turned into an upscale nightclub atmosphere to raise money.When you camp at Oak Plantation Campground in Johns Island, you can take a walk down the old cobblestone roads of Charleston, like the old Battery, where lots of monuments, cannons, and other historical plaques can be found. Old colonial homes, antiquated churches, shopping plazas, farmers markets, and a whole lot more can be seen throughout the city.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
