I stayed at the KOA and would not recommend it. There is a state park called Skidaway St Park , I think that has gotten good reviews.

Hardeeville, SC RV park. Simple accommodations, grass lots, quiet. Not a lot to do in the campground for kids, but we spent most of our time in Savannah anyway. About 15 min drive to town across the river. I would stay there again when in the area.

Depends on what you're looking for. We usually avoid KOA. We stayed at Savannah Oaks when we went to Savannah. But we didn't see much of the CG. They did have a trolley to take us to Savannah which is where we spent most of our time. We have stayed at the Savannah KOA also, we don't recommend it.

We enjoyed Skidaway State Park. Huge sites, however the roads were tight and had to watch for low hanging limbs in our 42" coach.

We stayed at the Tybee Island town owned campground. It's a walk to the beach.

We would vote for RIVERS EDGE on Tybee Island. Nice city owned RV Park. You can walk to the beach and the fort. 2nd choice..... oops there isn't one. we hace stayed at the Oaks at point south (about 60 miles from Savannah. Its a 1000 trails and also offers other kinds of discounts. safe travels...ed

Unfortunately there isn't any "resort" for RVs near Savannah. As others have posted, it depends on what you are there for.

Tybee Island is ~20 miles East of Savannah at the end of US80, and the sites are pretty "tight". Skidaway Island State Park is way out on the south side of town and the sand gnats can be horrible at times. Savannah Oaks is south of Savannah and a few miles west of I-95 on Hwy 204, and is nothing special, IMO.

If you want to see Savannah's Historic squares downtown and the riverfront area, then Hardeeville,( South Carolina ) RV park, just across the river is THE place to stay. Nothing there, but peaceful at night and closest to Savannah.

FWIW, I've stayed at all of the above and would not hesitate to stay at Hardeeville again. Ed

We stayed at the Hardeeville RV Park for a week in May. They have no facilities, just grass sites with full hookups at a reasonable price. Lots of full time residents but they were no problem and some were even friendly.
If you let them put you up front the road can get noisy day and night.
We wanted to spend our days in Savannah and didn't care about facilities so it was just fine for our needs.

We stayed at the Savannah South KOA, intending to spend our time visiting Savannah. It's not a "resort" but acceptable for this purpose.

Savannah is a beautiful city. We stayed at River's Edge. If available, ask for site 59. They have a lot of motorhome sites (pull in) but most are grossly off level and/or too short for a tag axle rig. Besides site 59 (right across from the office) there are some out by the road (not at all a busy road) that would work for a big rig.

It is within walking distance of the beaches but not the fort (which is worth a visit). Be sure to eat at "The Crab Shack", it's outstanding. We got one of the big combination platters and had plenty of leftovers for meals later in the week.

Do be aware that if you stay on the island you will be driving the rig right through downtown. I didn't think it was too bad, but some might be uncomfortable.

If you plan to visit areas other than Savannah from the one home base, such as Hilton Head or Beaufort, you may want to stay out closer to I95.

No one has mentioned Red Gate. I have not stayed there but plan to in October. I have stayed at all the other places mentioned and was not impressed with any of them. (That's why I'm giving Red Gate try)

Good Luck and prepare for some great food.
