Spent the night of Nov. 23 thru noon on the 25th at the park in site #66.  Prior to going read dozens of reviews and most mentioned the size of the campsites.  Without a doubt they are the biggest I have seen.  I would say the average size is 80’x100′ with some bigger.  All sites are pull thru.  Since the water and electrical is right beside the road, to take full advantage of the size of the sites you need a minimum of 50′ of water line and 50′ of electrical.  However, 25′ of each will be plenty if you don’t mind being close to the road.

70 sites have water and electrical hookups with 17 more also having sewer hookups. All but 13 of the sites had cable television hookups.  37 sites are 30amp max while the other 50 have 20/30/50amp hookups. The sites are grouped into 4 sections with a total of 3 bathhouses.  Our bathhouse in area #3 was pretty new. The men’s side had a urinal, two commodes and two large showers.  The ladies had three commodes and two large showers.  A separate unisex handicap bathroom had a commode and shower.  They all were very clean.  All bathhouses also have washers and dryers to wash your clothes.  Normally, at this point I would tell you what sites to avoid and what sites to get.  I honestly did not see any bad sites and since you can not reserve a specific site, you have the opportunity to drive around and pick the site you want from what is available. 

The park itself has several trails that pass thru forests and along tidal saltwater marshes.  Along the trails you can observe Civil War fortifications in addition to lots of wildlife.  One of the trails leads to an observation tower.  The park is app. 12 miles from exit 94 on I-95 and also 12 miles from the Historic district of downtown Savannah and Paula Deen’s Lady and Sons Restaurant.  Only 3 miles from the park is the Wormsloe State Historic Site for which you can get a $2 off admission coupon from the campground staff.  Even though the park is surrounded by housing developments, it was very quiet. 

If visiting Savannah(which you should be doing), I recommend you park at the Visitor’s Center on MLK Blvd.  This building also houses the GA Museum of History; the Railroad Museum and Children’s Museum are next door.  Parking on the weekend is free and during the week $7 per day or a 2-day pass can be purchased for  $12.  This is also the home base for all the sightseeing tours including the Old Towne Trolley, Olde Savannah, Blue line, Ghost tours.  It is also a departure point for the free DOT bus that will take you to most of the same stops the other tours that charge $12-$15 a person go to.  This is a deal and I recommend it.  You can always buy a guide book to get the history lesson.

This is a campground and park that I definitely recommend and will return to again.
