Nice places near Wilmington, NC, Savannah, GA, St. Augustine, FL & Tampa, FL

Good Morning!
We are 10 week newbies to RVing. Our home in Hummelstown was flooded 9/7 in Tropical Storm Lee and our daughter & grandson graciously offered and drove their 36 Itasca from Colorado Springs so we would have a place to stay while rebuilding.

Nov. 18, we received a lovely letter from FEMA saying we may need to raise our home or accept a buyout. My husband HATES, I mean bordering on depises, both COLD and SNOW, so I think the Lord may be leading us to warmer climes.

We own a 35 ft. sailboat, so we are looking to be near, not necessarily on water. I've been looking/thinking about the above areas and would like to take our RV down to explore/temporarily live for the next few months. Any advice, ideas, suggestions, experiences would be so welcomed as we are green as grass!

Looking forward to your collective wisdom!

Brightest blessings!

Robin & Larry Isaacson

Blythe Island Regional in the SE corner of GA. Full hook ups including WiFi and CATV. Adjacent to a marina on the South Brunswick River. Monthly rates.

As you can find in other threads that's my standard answer for campgrounds in that region. I have several favorites around the country but for there, this is it.

I am about 30-45 minutes from Savannah in Townsend GA 3 miles more or less off Exit 49 on I-95 at Cathead Creek RV park. .This is a small park (24 sites most pull through) with an on-site "Cowboy Church" which.. Well, it's worth it in itself. I found I really like it here. About 5 miles away is the Darian river and ... Well, you are very close to the ocean so we have all the "nearby water" you could ask for.

You can google for the park: Cathead Creek RV Townsend GA will find it

Free cable TV with your site rental... The church has a Thrusday evening "Service" which is primarly .. Pot luck dinner.
Home is where I park it!

In Wilmington you are pretty much limited to the KOA if you want to be close to town. It's a nice enought place with an easy drive to the historic distric.
In Savannah, I suggest Skidaway Island State Park. Close to town, but with huge pull thru sites.
For St. Augustine, we like North Beach Camp Ground, Just a couple miles from the historic district and ask access to both the Ocena and the intercostal. Sites are good sized and seperated from each other my native vegitation.
In Tampa, I suggest Hillsborough State Park, EG Simmons County Park, or Lithia Springs County Park.
If you come to Tampa, check out the Tampa Sailing Squadron in Apollo Beach. Reasonably priced dockage/moorings for members.
Good Luck !

I am currently parked in McIntosh County Georgia, (Townsend to be specific)

The next town is Darien.. Darian has it's own river, and Fort, and is ...well, basically a sand bar away from the Ocean.. Nice weather (Yes it does get to freezing but so far only one neighbor here in he park has reported a frozen hose. no problems with the RV's plumbing) there is land in the area for sale.. Heck there is an entire development less than a mile from where I'm parked that's for sale. (Bank owns it)

Churches in Darien have staggered services so if you believe in church, and spouse believes in a DIFFERENT church, you can both go. (While I"m here I sing in the chior at one of them)

If you would like to visit in the RV take I-95 to exit 49, turn in the direction of the Darien Outelt Mall (Which is next to the freeway) and go about 3 miles more or less straight (The road you are on "peals off" to the right but you continue straight) first RV park on the right.
Home is where I park it!

Jekyll Island State Park, GA. Just across the bridge from Brunswick, GA. The RV park is large enough for any rig and has full hookups including cable TV.

Jekyll Island Campground

Golden Isles RV Resort, Brunswick, GA. Upscale RV resort.

Coastal GA RV Resort - Welcome Home

Plenty of ports for your sailboat. Both parks are close to I-95 so you can check out the area.

Good Luck,

If you are looking to escape the cold winter temps Wilmington is not going to be far enough south. You need to be thinking mid FL or farther south. In a MH you will need to deal with freezing water hoses, holding tanks (if not heated), high heating costs from mid Dec thru March just about anywhere in NC.

That's why we go way south FL.
