We spent the Labor Day Holiday at Point South KOA in Yemassee, SC.
Hurricane Hermine was passing by at this point so our trip down and arrival was full of rain and thunderstorms. We made it safely but by the time we actually made it to Point South it was getting late. We decided to just get dinner and get ready to sleep. We left the camper hooked up to David's truck all night. (We did get all of the necessities hooked up but doing that in the rain with an umbrella was all we wanted to deal with.
The next morning all of the rain was gone and the sky looked like nothing had ever happened. The staff here was up early clearing debris and just making sure everything was nice and up and running. This was actually how they did things everyday. This was the most I've seen staff members at a park since we started camping. They were all very nice.

There is a lake on the property that was really pretty but I don't recommend hanging out at or letting your guard down. It is full of gators. We saw a 5 or 6 ranging in size from 2ft - 6ishft. None came out of the water but it was interesting to seem them out there swimming. The property also has a nice little dog park, play ground, gem mining feature, pool (not heated), and a fantastic bath house.
The water was COLD. but these two

This KOA, like others, has cabins you can rent if you don't want to tent camp and don't have a RV. They were cute little things. This KOA does have two super unique cabins that would be nifty to stay in. There is one made from an old trolley car and another made from an old Caboose. Definitely neat, unique, and awesome.

On the way here we did make a pit stop to explore some history at the Old Sheldon Church Ruins. It was so beautiful too. You could feel the history in this place. It was definitely one of those times that takes you back and makes you think about how life was back then. Makes you think of all the people in the graves around you. The graves seem haphazardly placed all around the church. There was probably good reason for it but I don't know what it is.

Thank you Point South KOA! It was very nice staying with you and we hope to make it back one day! We still have a lot to explore.
