Savannah CG

Looking for a CG recommendation near Savannah for touring the city. I know Ft. McAllister and Skidaway are highly recommended, but are not suitable for me. I need sewer hookups, Direct TV access, Verizon Cell coverage and room enough for a 45 ft. rig. Who knows of a suitable CG?

The KOA at Richmond Hills off of I95 has all you need and can take a 45'. It is just south of Savannah

I like that KOA also. Price is high as most KOA's but nice and clean.

We stayed in Hilton Head. Close enough to drive down to tour the city. It's a tight squeeze into the RV park, but the lots are plenty big enough. Nice marina right there, and lots of other things to see nearby. You'll have to pick your site carefully to get a good angle for DirecTV between the trees.

We have a 39 ft motorhome. For this size Skidaway is easily accessible. There are also a number of sites that would accomodate your 45 footer. We camphosted there in spring of 2008. Went back to stay the last of Oct. '08. They had opened up the sites and the roadways much more during that time. It was a perfect place from which to explore Savannah.

Thanks, TJM. So, as requested, I can assume they have FULL hookups at each site? (Including sewer)?

No, Slabman. They only have water and electric. Sorry I didn't return an answer in time. Haven't been online much the last few months.

This past June, we stayed at the Hardeeville RV - Thomas Parks that was 9 miles from downtown Savannah, and easy jumping off point to Hilton Head, etc., This is a full hook-up park, lots of trees so you would have to ask about a position for satellite (they have them), but it does have free WiFi and cable. It is a Passport America park for 3 nights. The rates were good without the PA. This is a no frills park. There are no showers, no pool, and I prefere to use my own bathroom. The location is very rustic. We had our 70 pound Husky with us with no problems. There are trails that you can walk to take in mother nature. The sites are all natural and if I recall they were dirt/gravel and all pull through, but you DO have to maneuver around trees to get into them if you get a shaded site. I stayed there in a 40ft MH with TOAD and I had no problems getting in or out. Out was easier since all I had to do was drive across a flat field. (Remember - rustic?)

We would stay here again if traveling through the area and visiting Savannah. We did go to Paula Deen's restaurant, and of that experience, which is our main reason for visiting the area, I will say that my dear wife puts out a better spread than what we experienced, but we can say "We've been there." (for lunch)

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We stayed at the Savannah Oaks (aka Bellaire Woods) Campground in June. Many of the sites are big enough for your rig. We are 41' and had plenty of room. It's an older campground, nothing super fancy, but they are doing a pretty good job maintaining it. The roads and parking areas are dirt/gravel. Lots of trees but still manueverable. The row of pull throughs where we stayed had 50 amp, water and sewer. I think some of the sites were just 30 amp and I don't remember if there are any sites without sewer. You'd have to ask. We don't have satellite TV (the park did have cable) but there was a more open area in the park too where a lot of the big rigs were parked and I'd imagine satellite would work fine there. Again, I'd ask before making a reservation to be sure. It's only about 20 minutes away from the Savannah Historic District. Only drawback for us - we had very poor cell reception in the park - worked fine when we got just a short distance away. We have AT&T service and we've come across a few places where we couldn't get a signal, but Verizon users could. Didn't ask anyone at that park though, so don't know if it will be a problem for you.
