We come to Dan Nicholas several times a year as we are a county resident. We absolutely love this park. Most of the sites are very level, some being a little tricky to get into because of the tress. They are very large shaded gravel sites with a fire ring and picnic table. The staff is outstanding and you can tell they take pride in keeping the campground clean. The restrooms are very clean. No sewer hookup and they really need to remove the tree obstacle at the dump station. This is the only thing that keeps me from giving the park a 10. There is so much to do on the park side - gem mining, carousel, train, small zoo, petting zoo, aquarium, miniature golf, paddle boats, large lake. Small concession stand. It's very quiet and nights are great to sit around the campfire. Do not expect much of a cell phone signal if any at all. You can get just a couple local stations on the TV using your antenna. We highly recommend this park and we will continue to visit as often as we can.
This is a very nice park. We arrived a few minutes after the office had closed but our welcome packet was waiting in the mail box. We drove around into the campground and the host came out to meet us. He escorted us to our site since this was our first stay at the park and helped back us right in. He told us a little about the park and the area and if we had any questions to feel free to come to his camper and ask. Very friendly. Some of the sites are very sloped and we do not see how your could get very level. They do however tell you this when you book your site online. The roads are nicely paved and easy to navigate. The sites also have a pad and give you plenty of room. For all the activities you have to actually go into the park, they are not right at the campground. But they have plenty of trails you can walk or bike ride. They have a very large pool, 2 golf courses, a 3 par course, horseback riding, 2 lakes and 3 mountain bike paths. We were disappointed that you could not have a campfire at your campsite. Not sure why, there was plenty of room between spaces. There were some community fire rings by the pavilion but you would have to drag your firewood over there if you were not in one of the close spots. They have just opened a beautiful off leash dog park that is situated right at the entrance to the campground. We will definitely be frequenting this park.
We camped here Halloween weekend. The park was ok. Sites were a little confusing the way they backed into each other. It was not busy and we had the whole site, which was very roomy. Could use some kind of gravel, very muddy and dirty. No issues with leveling in our site. Was disappointed that they did not have any activities for Halloween. Not even trick or treating which we have found in previous years at other campgrounds. They did have the Campground Massacre going on which was an ok trail and campers received a discount. A lot of highway noise and people just stopping in for the night which made mornings noisy. Seems to be typical thing with KOA. There was a lot of car traffic on the road in and out of the campground which we think was coming from the large section of permanent campers in the back of the campground. A little expensive for what you get and location. We will not camp here again.
This is one of the nicest campgrounds that we have been to. Very surprised for a KOA. The sites were long and roomy and clean. The staff was very friendly and check in was less than 5 minutes. Being the holiday weekend we were expecting it to be crowded and noisy but it was just the opposite. Wal-Mart was less than a mile away. It was a short drive to the Isle of Palm beach and about a 10 mile drive to Charleston. Had no issues with cable TV, Wi-Fi or ants as reported by previous reviewers. Will definitely be back next year as we preferred this much more over Myrtle Beach.
Not too many good points about this campground. The area with full hookups is cramped into two rows. It is very hard to navigate into the spots. The campers are parked every other way so your neighbor was facing you. There was barely enough room to open both awnings. The two spots side by side should actually be one spot. The sites were not very level. No room for a fire. This campground was a revolving door, seemed like it was more of an overnight stop through. The pool was open to locals so it was always full. The good points, the staff was extremely nice and there was a very large family fun center with indoor mini golf, arcade games, and a small cafe. We would not stay here again.
The roads were in very bad shape, very narrow and full of pot holes. You had to circle around the whole campground just to get in or out. The sites were very close together. Our original site was at the top of the hill and was not very level. You had to pull half into another site to get to our site. It was too small for our trailer. While the camper sat at the top of the hill, the truck was halfway down and we could not get disconnected. We would have not been able to open our awning or sit outside the camper as it had a hill on that side. We spoke with the woman at the office and she had 2 sites available around the lake. We moved sites and had no problem from that point forward. The staff was very friendly. The grounds were very clean. Lots of activities for the kids for Easter weekend. This KOA will probably not be a place that we will return to.
This is a very nice, clean campground located directly off I-95. The owners were very nice and helpful. The sites were level and in an open field with some trees. Although the area around the campground is not very nice, we were in town for a race at the speedway and will definitely stay here again if we return to Dillon.
