Welcome to JB Charleston Lowcountry FamCamp


The staff of the Outdoor Recreation Center would like to sincerely thank you for choosing Joint Base Charleston. We're very proud of our facility and hope that you enjoy it. We also take great pride in our city and the Lowcountry area. If you would like some suggestions about local attractions or need directions, please ask- we love to play tour guide! Please remember the ORC has discounted tickets for many local, regional and state venues. This brochure has the guidelines for using our FAMCAMP. When in doubt, we ask that you contact a staff member or the Camp Host first before proceeding.

Reservations: We do not currently take reservations. If the Famcamp is full we can place you in an overflow area with dry camping, until a full hookup site becomes available.
