Get on I-526 and take the I-26 West exit to Columbia. In approx 2 miles, take Exit 211A to West Aviation Ave. Go straight on West Aviation Ave until road nearly ends (approx 1 mile). Turn right at the light after passing railroad tracks (you will notice a sign) and follow the road, which will take you directly to the gate for entry onto the base. Once you are on the base, follow that road until it ends at the stop sign, and turn left. That will put you on Hill Blvd. Drive through the next 4-way stop sign. You will see the Charleston Club on the left side of the road just past the stop sign. Turn left and then an immediate left into the parking lot. Park in any unmarked spot.
