Smile Anyone joining us at the Charleston SC rally?

We are booked and looking forward to meeting other FROGS. We live in Charleston but love to camp at James Island County Park.

Any others going?

Unfortunately, we will miss it by a few days. We have reservations for Thanksgiving and it is our most anticipated trip of the year as James Island CG is our favorite place. We also have reservations the week of July 4th.

DW and I are from JI but new 5'er owners. Where that park is was all woods when I was growing up. Is it hard to reserve a spot there say in a couple weeks. We are down in Beaufort and trying to get into Hunting Island SP is next to impossible unless you booked a year in advance. Thanks

It would be very hard to get a reservation at James Island on short notice, depending on the time of year but they will put you on a waiting list & call if they have cancellations. We made reservations for this Thanksgiving in December, 2012. We called recently to see if we could switch sites & were told they were already booked.

Wow! Thanks for the quick response and the info! I'll get on this tomorrow morning.

You're very welcome! We were on the waiting list for this past Thanksgiving and something eventually came open so I'd say that there's still a good chance you can get in. We weren't able to go as turned out so we were determined to go this year and made our reservation early. Their Festival of Lights starts in November and we hear it's really something to see. Good luck!

It is awesome to see! We have taken the kids up there when they were younger. You can drive through it, I think it around 3 miles, tune your radio to a station and listen to Christmas music and a short narrative about it's making and some of the sponsors. Really nice to see.

Being from Charleston, several years ago the DW and I drove through Lake Aire looking around at the facility. It has been at least 5 years ago. We were not impressed. It appeared to be "outdated". Things could have changed since we last were up there. Have you talked with anyone who has stayed there before? We may be going up there this weekend. If so, I will drive in there and look around, see if anything looks different. Have you heard of "The Oaks" or "Oaks Plantation" (can't remember exactly) but its off Hwy 17 and my neighbor thinks it's nice. I'll check out Lake Aire for you if I run up there this weekend.

Not sure if you've ever been to Charleston before, but it's an amazing city and so much to see. If you get a chance, be sure to see the Angel Tree on John's Island. It's incredible!
