South Carolina RV parks are spread across the state, with the most popular RV resorts being on the coast or along the state’s northwestern corner between Charlotte and the border with Georgia. Making camp at an RV site in South Carolina bears the benefit of being close to the ocean, close to the foothills of the southern Appalachian mountain range in the form of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the benefit of being surrounded by vibrant history and warm southern hospitality. Charleston is consistently ranked among the best cities in the world to visit, while resort towns like Myrtle Beach have been drawing crowds for many generations.
Starting from the border with North Carolina on the Atlantic coast, the South Carolina RV resorts by the beach are popular among snowbirds, or folks who RV year-round.
