Date of Stay: July, 2006
This was a great park to stay with children. My kids are 5 and 7 and they were constantly busy. There was a visiting youth church group and they had face painting, tye dye t-shirt and flip flop making, which was wonderful. My children went from the pool to activities all the time. This park is a constant buzz on the fourth of July. People everywhere. Park has a great covered pool and the jumping pillow was so hot in the daytime that it burned my kids feet. Only problem was that it closed at 7pm which is really the best time to do any jumping and not burn up. Overall our site was awesome, but should be since it was $62 a night. We had a nice paved "super site." If your looking for a lot of peace and quiet then this is not the park for you. Like some action and activities then this will be right down your alley. Was a nice stay and quiet time rules are enforced. Only bad thing I can say is that this park does allow golf carts and four-wheelers. If you are driving a vehicle or a big rig in and out of the park you have constantly got to navigate between kids which rule the road and will shoot right in front of a big rig. This made me extremely nervous and it looks like a accident just waiting to happen. Parents have a tendency to let their children run wild, they have no clue there are vehicles around. Even little ones riding bikes with no parents. One ran out in front of me on a bike with training wheels: I don't know where she came from but Thank Goodness we did not hit her. Just be careful as it is kind of chaotic.

This is a great park. Very clean and lots of things within driving distance. The park is very secluded and within a few minutes you can be in Savannah is all the traffic. Only problem is the sand gnats. They will literally eat you alive. I don't know believe they spray for them and you cannot spend any time outdoors, which if you are camping is exactly what you want to do. This is our second time visiting in April and we will not be back because the bugs are so bad. The chew my kids up and then wanted more. They get in your hair and no amount of repel bug spray or skin so soft will help. If you do decide to go, we were told by a local that the sand gnats are only there when temperatures are pleasant from about 60 to 80 degrees. And they are not bad when temps are over 80 which would be in the summer. Just have to check it out and see. If you do come here I will suggest that you take the nature trail out to the salt marsh. They have a observation deck and it is beautiful. It is a great place to ride your bike out to and have a picnic. But there are some swampy areas and we did see a couple of snakes (one water snake and one copperhead) so watch out with pets or children. The park claims that they do have a alligator in the park but we have not seen it yet but others we talked to had so be careful. This is again a nice park with nice sized camping lots and plenty of privacy. Not alot of channels come in on the cable so satellite would be much better. Tent campers are not in a section but mixed all thoughout the campground. It is also about a 30 minute drive out to Tybee to see the ocean but the park did provide a map which made it very easy to navigate Savannah. River Street was awesome and take a ride out the the Savannah Wildlife Refuge, it was nice to see alligators in their own surroundings. Check it out, but watch out for the gnats. YUCK!
