Your Favorite Campgrounds along the NC and SC coast?

Trying to plan a trip over the memorial long weekend to the coast. We are in Asheville NC and would preferably like to keep the drive under 6hrs. We really wanted to go to Hunting Island SC but didn't reserve in time and is already completely booked up...so wanted to get some other suggestions of your favorite less known about gems you may have stayed at... can not wait to CAMP

We have been to [in order of favorites] Huntington Beach, Hunting Island, Myrtle Beach, and Edisto. All of them SC state parks. Are you coming to Jane & Gregs Uhaul and fiberglass camper rally April 13th to 15th near Columbia SC. We are, will be at Lucky Strike Mine campground March 31 & April 1, then Fort McAllister GA 2 days, then on to Jekyll Island til the 13th.

Jekyl Island has a great campground and maybe the nicest beach on the east coast, also antique homes which are open for tours. Usually not too crowded.

floyd: SSHHH, don't give away the secret!!! It'll get crowded. Campground was 3/4 full the three weeks we were there in December. They are supposed to do a major expansion to the campground this year. Bob

We just got back from the Casita Rally in Myrtle Beach and the cg was unbelievable. Myrtle Beach Travel Park Campground That said, it fills up quickly in May, but Huntington Beach SP, SC is about 5 miles south and may be available.

Huntington Beach has larger sites and the art museum, we like it a little better but go to both happily

As well we've been to Hunting Island State Park near Beaufort, SC, quite different from Myrtle and Huntington, and visited Edisto. These two have the advantage of being away from the busy Myrtle area.

My vote goes to....

Edisto Beach State Park.

There are actually 2 campgrounds...one on the ocean and one on the river...both are loverly. The inland one is more woodsy and the sites tend to be a bit larger than the oceanside.

We like the oceanside, nestled in the dunes with the sound of the tide coming and going. We've been twice at Thanksgiving and ended up with the site right next to the first shower house. Big size and plenty of trees, the foot traffic is not awful even so the site is close to it and the incoming road. It also has free Wi-Fi in the visitor's center.

They fill fast though...dunno if there's anything left for the upcoming season...you'll have to check online.

And, be sure to check our our favorite Sea Cow Eatery...very tasty for breakfast or supper. Never been at lunch, but it's probably good for that, too.

...Josie

Baj, if hookups aren't a consideration, the Frisco campground in Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a great option. Reservations aren't accepted but if you can get down on Thursday or earlier in the week you'll be OK. It will fill up by noon on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend. The Park Service's Ocracoke campground isn't a bad second choice and they do take reservations there. NPS also has campgrounds at Oregon Inlet and Buxton (near the Hatteras Lighthouse).

If you aren't familiar with our Outer Banks and want more info, I'll be glad to share my thoughts on the area.

More great suggestions, thank you!
Anyone ever camp down around Charleston? I was looking at the James Island campground website but really couldn't tell how close to the beach it was..kinda looked like alot of marsh around it..anyone ever been there or any of the other campgrounds around there?
That area is only 4.5hrs from us here in Asheville NC and with the little one(almost 1.5yrs old now) we are trying to keep the drive to a minimum since she isn't very fond of long car rides...
Thanks again everyone!
