Is there an alternate way in to avoid the low hanging trees that everyone seems to talk about.

Not that I know of. We have a TT that's about 11.5ft high and had no trouble. I saw some larger 5th wheels and motor homes there so I assume they didn't. I know our GPS took us in one way but we preferred to go in
and out on 700 and Riverland Dr. There is no way to avoid Riverland Dr but like I said we had no problems.

We are heading there after the year turns. Now pulling a 13'2" tall fifth wheel. I will be calling the park to find out more.

I will offer two options and recommend you do a virtual drive on Google Maps of both to figure out which you prefer.

Take James Island Connector (hwy 30) and turn left on Folly Road. Right on Camp Road. Right on Riverland Drive. Left into the park. Biggest problem with this route is the right turn onto Camp Road as it would be tight.

Take James Island Connector (hwy 30) and turn left on Folly Road. Right on George L Griffith Road. Right on Riverland Road. Left into park.

I do not recommend using Central Park Rd because of the left onto Riverland which is usually bad enough in a car but can be done with RVs as I see them all the time, just takes patience. Also will warn that at above normal high tides, the road does flood with salt water but not to the point it can't be driven.

Riverland Dr has a bad reputation which is deserved to the drivers not paying attention. The old large oak trees have the scars to prove it. However, if you pay attention, don't ride the white line and you will be fine.

What he said^^. Our 5th wheel is tall, 13' 3", and getting in the park was a challenge but we did it. Had a TT following us in and talking at check-in he couldn't believe we made it. Having been there once, I'm not going back. Trees grow. They don't seem too motivated to trim them.
