We are conveniently located approximately 30 minutes from Charleston, SC and Francis Marion National Forest, and 45 minutes from Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, and Folly Beach.
Boondocking is available most any time, as long as we have a little notice. We are often contacted by fellow boondockers with vehicles that are too large for our space. We currently have the ability to park our motorhome and a few cars in, or next to, our driveway. We can accommodate a motorhome up to approx 25 ft. We can accommodate a travel trailer of a similar size as well but you will not be able to remain hooked up. As much as we'd like to accommodate everyone, we just don't have space for larger vehicles. Keep in mind we are on a somewhat busy neighborhood street so there will be some traffic noise. If you'd like suggestions for other spots nearby we are happy to help. Charleston is a wonderful place to visit.
NOTE: We are currently the only Boondocker host site with easy access to Charleston and have become quite busy. If we are already booked, here are some suggestions of alternatives in the area:
Charleston Visitor's Center parking garage on Mary St (They have large spots for RVs with plenty of overhead clearance and it's $16/day and very centrally located. No hook ups though.)
James Island County Park (They have overflow boondocker parking at a reduced rate.)
Edisto Beach State Park (Beach Campground)
KOA in Mt. Pleasant
Oak Plantation (never been but have heard it's ok)
KOA in Ladson (stayed once, easy access to I-26, ok for a quick overnight w/ hook ups, but nothing fancy).
We had such a lovely time at Low Country Lodge. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating, hooking us up to electricity and water when we arrived. Summerville has a lovely downtown and we also loved walking through the nearby streets. We look forward to returning one day when the weather is a little bit warmer!
The host were very welcoming. They had cleared the spot for us and it was easy to slip into. Also an easy home to find. Very convenient to Charleston. The road nearby does have a good bit of traffic at night so you may want to bring white noise or ear plugs. The dogs are very human friendly.
My host were very accommodating. They graciously opened their driveway to me to allow me to work in my Schoolie and came to chat ave visit my last night. Their pets are beautiful and this area is very convient. I thank them for their hospitality, conversation and amazing energy.
We had a nice time with Tracey and Scott, they were very helpful and nice. I would go back when in SC.
They were wonderful to help park, supply me with electricy and water. Meeting the family, dogs and talk about travels topped off my stay.
We enjoyed our stay, great communication with the host. We got some tips about Charleston and also appreciated being able to plug in. We would gladly stay with them again when we're in the area.
Tracey and her family were great hosts. They were very responsive and gave us some great tips on how to navigate Charleston. We'd be happy to stay there again. Thanks for having us!
Tracey and her family were super accommodating and helpful during our stay with them.
Their driveway is flat and level and super easy to get into even with our low clearance trailer.
We enjoyed meeting them and sharing travel stories, will definitely be calling them again when we are in the Charleston area.
Tracy and family were is helpful on our second stay as they were on our first. We were comfortable and felt very welcome. They are great hosts!
Although our plans changed before we were planning to stay at Lowcountry Lodging and we never stayed all of my dealings with Tracey were wonderful. She had some things going on at her home but she still offered me a spot in her yard. I hope some day we get to meet wether it's in SC or at our house in NY. Very nice to deal with.
Had a wonderful time here. Tracy and her family were most welcoming. Very knowledgeable about the area. I really like history and spooky tidbits. Tracy and her daughter filled me in on both. Summerville is a great small town for a day visit. If you do stop here, be sure and visit the pharmacy and find all the little bird statues! Thx Tracy!
Great family! So helpful and gracious. Thanks for making our stay so comfortable!
Tracey was wonderful. She took me on a tour of Charleston. I saw spots that I would have missed if it wasn’t for her guidance and suggestion. Thanks again for a great time.
We stay for only one night in this little town of Summerville which is near to Charleston. Traceyk73 gave us a lot of information regarding Charleston. They were great hosts. Thanks to both of them !
We LOVED meeting and visiting with the Kaplan family!!!!! Their property is very pretty. There is even a stream running through it. Scott, Tracey, Arianna and their "fur babies" are all such warm, kind, funny and gracious that we would go back in a heart beat!!!!!
