Air Base Fam Camp
The Air Base Fam Camp is located on the Air Base, which is just 25 minutes away from historic downtown Charleston. This famcamp has pull-through sites, concrete pads, laundry facilities, and nice walking trails. It also lives up to its name in terms of location - a nicely wooded area with lots of shade.
The location is close to the Golf Course and ORC, but you are just a short drive or leisurely walk to everything the base has to offer.
