South Carolina Coast – Hilton Head, Charleston, Myrtle Beach

Hilton Head

While we were visiting Georgia, we took a day trip to Hilton Head in South Carolina.  This is a very pretty area.  We took a drive to the beach, where it turns out there were TONS of people!  We just put our feet in the water and left as it was way too crowded.


Quite of few of these guys in the campground


After leaving Georgia, we stayed at Lake Aire RV Park, outside of Charleston, South Carolina.

Booking this part of the trip, up the coast, was more difficult as it is summer, but I was able to find spots to make it work.  In this case, we had to settle for a 30 amp spot, no sewer (the no sewer part is not a big deal for a couple of nights, but 30 amps doesn’t work well to stay cool in the heat).

The park is nice, has a big catch/release pond, and set back from the freeway, and a 1/2 hour drive to Charleston.  The drawbacks, the railroad close by, and very low water pressure.  We also found out that running just one a/c doesn’t really stay cool in the trailer when the sun is right on it during the day.  On the upside, when out exploring, we found a good old-fashioned ice cream parlor (with burgers, etc) called Ye Ole Fashion Ice Cream.  We took a water taxi and saw dolphins playing.  Hard to capture them on camera but tried.  We also wandered the City Market – a neat place to find local vendors.

Myrtle Beach

We spent three nights at Hideaway RV Park outside of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, which turned out to be a great park!  Cemented level sites pull through, 50 amp, full hookups, and very nice, helpful people in the office!  They have a newer cafe that has great very inexpensive food if you don’t want to cook – always a plus!

It is right on the river, although our site did not back up to it, but is across the street.  It has all the amenities – laundry room, pool, etc.  And the wifi is great!  Able to catch up on my blogging with lots of photos, and even stream on Roku!  Especially when the rain is pouring and quite the thunder and lightning storm, making it hard to go sit on the beach.
