Stay Overnight On An Old WWII Aircraft Carrier Right Here In South Carolina
Few people in South Carolina realize you can spend the night in the state’s most famous WWII museum, an aircraft carrier now permanently anchored in the Charleston harbor. An overnight or weekend camping trip here is one-of-a-kind in the Palmetto State and, given the opportunity, one that shouldn’t be missed. For years, thousands have been camping overnight inside the decommissioned vessel and you’ll want to also.
The USS Yorktown is located within the Patriots Point Naval Maritime Museum at 40 Patriots Point Rd., Mt Pleasant, SC 29464. Overnight camping is limited to only organized youth groups of at least 10 persons – and the adults that accompany those groups. Basic pricing varies and is currently $45/per camper for one night without a special educational program (includes breakfast and lunch); $75/per camper for one night including an educational program (includes breakfast, lunch and dinner); and $99/per camper for two nights including an educational program (includes breakfast, lunch and dinner for two days). Learn more at this overnight camping link on the official website for Patriots Point.
