We found the Wi-Fi was in and out during our stay and no cable at our site.
Good over the air TV, Verizon worked well. Found the 30-amp electric service to be erratic.
Price reflects NPS Senior discount. I would NOT pay the advertised price of $36.00 a night for staying in this mud hole.
MWR employee unable to operate the machine for credit card payment, so we had to pay cash. - thetravelkids

Since we were told on the phone that there were no sites available in the regular campground, we stayed in the overflow "primitive" campground. This area has water hookups only. There was one other camper in this area but no one appeared to be be staying there during our visit. We only stayed one night and with a generator and fully contained it was fine. The sites are poorly defined and indicated only by the water hookups. We selected what appeared to be a pull-through site.
Upon arrival we drove through the regular campground and couldn't help but notice unoccupied sites, as well as many RVs that appeared to be at least semi-permanent; it certainly appeared that some had been in place much longer than 14 days. The vacant sites were still vacant when we left the following day, although we were told that no sites were available for our single night request. Signs indicate that you can call the office for assistance. I didn't see a sign indicating directions to the office.
We would stay here again for an overnight stopover. - Donna and Steve

Poorly run campground. The office staff is not on top of things and there is no campground host. One family pulled in and were told after one night they would have to move to overflow due to reservations. Four sites sat empty all weekend and those that came in had no reservations. Office was closed for 5 days (Memorial weekend) with no payment system so all those that came in for the weekend stayed free. At least it was only 15 minutes from Savannah. - buckingthenorm

We stayed one night. Found out they only have 50 amp hookups. The office was nice about letting us borrow a transformer for the night. We had to pay $10 extra for the other 2 adults but the kids under 18 were free. Bathrooms were satisfactory. One of the 4 showers was out of order. The RV campground was nice. There is a club house we didn't use but peeked in the window. It had a pool table and large TV. I loved the farm atmosphere. They have some goats, horses, ducks, chickens and pheasants. The RV area is very sunny. Could plant a few trees to make some shade. I would stay here again. - Desiree

My wife and I wanted to use Savannah GA as a home base to visit nearby cities, beaches and islands. Red Gate seemed to be upscale and boasted having some "semi-Private" sites. Looking at the website campground, this seemed to be true so we called and booked the site & were told B-3 was the most secluded site available. The map showed no other campsites nearby so a higher rate seemed justified. We arrived late but the office was opened and our campsite info was posted indicating where B-3 was located. We backed in and noted a major problem, the pad was significantly lower than the sewer hook-up. Water does not flow uphill!
The next morning we awoke to find neighbors had arrived during the night and those campsites (loose definition) are not indicated on the site map. This is a large and beautiful farm, converted to a RV park. There are a number of places to camp, next to the office, just run a water hose and drop cord out or tent camping under a tree. I overheard others discussing how "disorganized" it seemed to be. Sewer, water and electrical is poorly designed and not up to code. As an example, the conduit to the electrical was not put together and glued, letting in water.
The office is a converted double wide trailer. The "showers" in the office, are two small home-style baths but not built for mass use, and the use/abuse is evident. The hosts were courteous, polite and helpful.
Although I mentioned my concern about the sewer, the maintenance man came by and had no suggestions. He said that previously they put only large "Pusher" trailers in B-3. When I tried to drain the sewer, major problem!
The last day we woke up to cigarette smoke and learned during the night new neighbor moved in and we were "enjoying " his smoke before we got out of bed. We checked out. Not worth the up-charge for privacy.
This is a beautiful campground, great location but significantly overpriced for semi-private accommodations. - Hardrock

Great park close to downtown Savannah. The sites are dirt/gravel, as are the roads. The area is very large with lots of space to walk the dogs. The campground has lots to see including farm animals. There is a r/r track across the pond and 1 or 2 crossings nearby. We didn't notice the train horn after a day or two. There is some highway noise if you are close to the front of the property. Our hookups were good. Most of the sites have one plug (50 amps) with no breaker. We had to plug in hot. According to one employee, they are considering breakers on the box. I deducted 1 point because they do not recycle. - Michael47

We requested a pull through site and when we got there they said "you only have to back up a little bit". They stated cable but when we arrived we were told we had to connect their cable box to the back of our TVs. Our TVs our built in so we have no way to connect a cable box. When I complained they said "you didn't come here to watch TV, did ya". Finally when I asked about the WiFi I was told I had to come to the office to use it. By this time I had had it and told them free WiFi means you get it in your location! What a terrible campground. I would never stay there again! - Farsaci

Worst RV park we have ever stayed in. It is located in a very bad part of town, and is surrounded by a barbed wire fence. The front gate is open all night, and shady looking people come in at night and walk around, no security. The pictures on their website are of the sites in the back, mostly full time lowlifes. All others are put in the lot in front, which is right next to a four lane busy highway, with sirens and trucks all night long. We did not sleep well. It rained, and we stepped out of our RV into mud. The sites are the same as any RV park, not as website states. Sad situation for the owners I guess, trying to run a junk business and old RV park on the same property. There are a lot of better choices close to Savannah, wish we had not been deceived. - RAMBLIN1

We stayed there for 4 nights so that we were close to the historic district of Savannah. The lady who booked us in was very pleasant and helpful and completely the opposite of what some other people have said on here. The site we were in was spacious and shaded, although only gravel and grass. There were no facilities at all, which is basically why it is called Biltmore RV Park. Close to Savannah for sightseeing, which is the reason why we went. The hook-up was the opposite from what we are used to so bring an extra section of sewer hose. I would recommend this site for visiting Savannah. - WillDeb

This is a workers park. Mostly TT housing a younger working crowed on a permanent setups. While the park is kept neat and clean, the Wi-Fi advertised does not work, the bathhouse is a small room of the laundry with one toilet and one shower which is quite dated. My "pull Through" site was until I arrived and then another camper was backed in behind me and we shared the same power pole, me 50 amp him 30 amp. No cable and over the air was very poor. When it rains the area I was in was puddle city. Perimeter sites were more spacious but filled with long termers. I was parked in the "field" where my awning almost touched my neighbor and the guy behind me was so close I could barely walk behind my unit. Stay away from this park unless you are looking for cheap long term parking. - JimChan52

This park is all level with mostly pull-thu's for short time visitors. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Took us to our site. Office is a house about 2 blocks before the park. 50amp/water/sewer all work fine. did not use the wash room, but, did use the laundry. Some long term residents, but their sites where well maintained and clean. This is a great park for seeing the area(Savannah). We would stay here again. we stayed here in a 38ft. motor home-towing. - wrready2

We camped 3 nights at Sunshine. We were in pull through section. Mowed grass with some rock in parking area. Water/Electric/Sewer hook ups. It's a no frills park, but exactly what we like to find. We use our own shower / rest rooms in our RV, so we don't care about bath houses. We bring our own fun, so we don't care for amenities etc. The owner is very present and is MOST accommodating. Plenty of room for pull through hauling a trailer. Quiet park, on approach to airport but has minimal air traffic. Fire station a ways off, we heard sirens occasionally, but not disturbing. Would stay here again, and would recommend to others. We thought the $40 cash rate was a bit high, but not out of reason. Good grocery stores nearby and easy access to downtown Savannah. - TheBigL

We enjoyed this park so much. The sites were level and spacious, and park is very nicely maintained. The movie, museum, and fort were very interesting and educational. We were expecting a fort, so we were surprised by all the mounds. The rangers were very nice and helpful and some of the park hosts were friendly and waved (some did not). The bath house was old but very clean. The tent sites are very nice with the raised platform, it's the first time we have seen so many tent campers. We also took full advantage of the fishing pier for the campers, plenty of room for a lot of campers to fish. We will stay here again. - thejones357

This Civil War-oriented park has heavily-forested sites, mostly pull-though, with 30 amp electricity and water. Most have no sewers; the few sites with sewers are booked months in advance. Otherwise, site selection is up to the camper. Satellite TV is unavailable but OTA will pick up all networks from Savanah local stations. Verizon service was okay but no WiFi.
Programs in April, 2016, included Uniforms of the Confederacy; Civil War Surgery, Civil War Military Drilling as well as several back to the 19th Century programs such as "Coastal Native American Hunting." The camp host displays a Confederate Battle Flag at his site.
The nightly price includes a one-day park fee of $5. Non-residents over 62 get a 5% discount. - Mtmoi

This is a very well kept state park; a forested island. The sites were all pull-throughs and were very spacious and quite lovely. The utilities were well placed; 30 amp and no sewer. It may have been the time of year, but there were bugs galore which did cause us to stay inside the trailer more than I would have liked. I did walk the park roads as there are almost no hiking trails that were not swampy. The park is historical with some artifacts and a small museum on display and has a typical "south" feel to it. The park personnel were helpful and very pleasant as were the Park Hosts. Depending on the time of the year and the bugs, we would definitely come back to this park. - the Fishers

Close to Savannah. Beautiful park but expensive for a state park. We were in site 34, which was a pull thru with full hookups and 30 and 50 amps. Easy in and out from the park, but a long drive from I-95. Utilities were good, had a table. - har-fl

Heavily wooded campground that was less than 1/4 full in early August. Other than 4 back-in full hookup sites, all the 70 others were pull thrus. The sites were all very large with a raised tent platform and cable TV hook-up. There is a boat ramp to the Inter-coastal waterway less than a mile away and a shopping center with banks gas station and a Publix market less than a 1/2 mile in the other direction. This is very convenient for a visit to Savannah. You get to pick your site as they are not assigned when you make a reservation. - Appleknocker

Lovely state park. Our 50 amp, FHU site was a very spacious horseshoe pull-thru. Lots of trees for a woodsy effect and privacy. Plenty of room for walking the dog. Very quiet, however we were there during the week. Nice, friendly check-in. Our site had limited cable channels, but no WiFi. Good Verizon cell service. We will definitely be back. - Gayle E.

A rustic and quiet stay a few miles off I-95 on a country road. The park has several main areas. We stayed in the lower area which is heavily wooded and away from the main road, it was so quiet at night all we heard were the frogs and cicadias.
Parked under the giant oak and pine trees, it felt like we were in the middle of the woods. The park is dated and not a resort, but it is nice enough. The site we were on has been recently renovated. It used to be 2 back in sites that have been combined to form a very long - at least 75 feet - pull through. They have 10 or so sites like this for big motorhomes. In August there are few motorhomes and they usually stay only for one night so we had this section to ourselves. Around the outside of the campground are quite a few permanent residents. They were quiet and self contained. The tree cover made our dish unable to get signal. Soil is mostly sand and was tracked in everywhere. Sites were level. Roads in the campground are tight in spots and in need of resurfacing.
The people are very nice and helpful. No services for 4 miles except the gas station/convenience store at the campground entrance.
We would stay here again. The rates were half of the price of other campgrounds near the ocean. - Bryanmsi

We had stayed there a few years ago, and it was much better kept. We were there in July and there were still leaves on the ground from the fall. Site was a pull-through, 50 amp, with cable service, fairly level but extremely narrow. We couldn't have the slides out and be able to put out the awning. If we were going to be there for more than 1 night I would have asked to move. Staff was extremely helpful with check-in and guidance to the site. For a one night stay I would stay again but for more than that I'd look elsewhere. - Screaming Eagle

Older camp, in a pinewood forest, a couple miles off I95. Frequent road noise from passing vehicles at all hours. Friendly check-in, escorted to site. 30A Pedestal had no circuit breaker I could see, it was just "live". Kinda odd. Site was fairly large, but required two Lego blocks to level. Good for a night or two, I suppose. - Llando88

Great overnight stop - close to I-95. Selected waterfront/50 amp site which gave us more room than the other sites in the park. Good cable and WiFi. Very convenient store right across the street to pick up food and sundry items. - Breezy2

We can usually count on a KOA to be a better quality campground. I am sorry to say this one did not meet our expectations.
We stayed at this KOA for 5 days over the July 4th weekend. The campground is located on a very busy road that is difficult to pull out onto with a large RV. The pull through site that we were assigned was not large enough to accommodate our motorhome and car. I had to park my car sideways in front of the motorhome to avoid sticking out into the main road. The sites are also too close together. I barely had room to put the awning out without overhanging the next site. The sewer drain for the neighboring site was next to my picnic table. Fortunately the person in that site didn't put their sewer hose out until the morning they were leaving. The shower stalls were small and the restrooms should have been cleaned more frequently on a busy holiday weekend. The pool was clean but was too small for this size campground. The pool was overcrowded most of the time we were there. The shuffleboard courts were very difficult to get to and we had to go to the office and find someone to clean the leaves and branches off before we could play. There is a very nice pond with ducks and geese and wildlife. The problem is you would have to walk through another campsite to get to the pond. That is something we would not do. There is a permanent section and a short stay section in this park. The permanent section is located in the back of the park and large and vehicles go in and out all day and cause excessive traffic by the short stay sites. When we inquired about a specific restaurant in the area the staff in the office made no attempt to help us locate it. The best I can say is the WIFI worked OK most of the time. I will not choose this campground if I visit the Savannah area again. - Freelander1

Stayed in the park for 5 nights. The staff was very friendly, showed to site and assisted with parking. Very easy in and out and less than a mile off interstate. Some comments with made about being close, but you have room to sit outside and no problems with parking. We will stay again. - bkboren
