While in Savannah, we stayed at the KOA campground located in Richmond Hill, which lies about 18 miles south of Savannah. The campground offers tent sites with electricity or RV sites with full hook-ups. Don’t have a tent or RV? Then try a camping cabin. These cozy log cabins offer a bed and electricity. You just supply the linens. The campground is located on a lovely 35-acre lake. The tent and cabin sites are located lakeside, while RVs are located in the middle of the campground. You will find a variety of waterfowl that have made a home here for themselves. You can even rent a boat to paddle around the lake and join them. We just pitched our tent facing towards the lake, and it made for a beautiful way to start and end the day.
Here, you will find an RV wash, cable TV, LP gas hook-up, electricity, data ports, fishing, and a swimming pool. The camp is open year-round. You will also find a general store well stocked with souvenirs and items that we always forget to pack. They can also help out with sightseeing information. The campground is clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only issue I had was when they did not have anyone around at night in case of any problems. We were located between two tents full of loud and very drunk college kids. We finally had to call the police to get any kind of help, which I prefer not doing. If you are headed here during St. Patrick’s Day, spring break, or the summer, advance reservations are a must. You can call them or simply go to for further information or to make reservations.
