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

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

Park management was disorganized and did not honor our reservation and we got bumped in a rude manner. Beware
Park has a lake but on viewed by one site. Park has a walking path around the lake. - Dmann1

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 place has very little to offer. Probably stays in business just because of its close proximity to Savannah. Nothing but a place to park for an expensive rate. No bathrooms or showers (they didn't tell us this when we called and we arrived after hours to find this out). Right next to a very busy street in a seedy urban area. And the thing that really aggravated me to the point of writing this negative review was that we realized the next morning just as we were leaving that they offered Good Sam discount. We called to ask if it could be applied couldn't get through several times (very hard to reach) finally got through and were told "it already went through". No other option. So, I really do not recommend this place, the experience was bad. - billcarr

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

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.

Very nice Georgia State Park with full hookups on the site we had. Interior roads are paved with easy access. Sites were heavily wooded and very private though not completely level so some leveling will most likely be required. Very peaceful place to walk and bike and take in nature while within 20 minutes to downtown Savannah. WiFi only at the office and your stay will require a additional $5 park entrance fee. Great for getting away from it all in nature if that's your thing. - Gators60

Park was clean, full hook up, 50 amp & cable, never heard of a state park with cable. We were able to pick up over the air antenna but no satellite. The park was close enough to historic Savannah. You can reserve a spot but it is not site specific. You pick from available spots for your reservation type when you arrive. We would stay again. - Connie's Co-Owner

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

We have stayed here before to visit the Savannah area. It has stayed pretty much the same. Dirt roads, some full time residents, sites fairly level, with lots of Oak trees, that can be messy different times of the year. But we find it nice and quiet for a rustic type of campground. The first site we were given had a new electric post, and it didn't have a correct ground, so we called the office and moved to a different site. Wi-fi and cable adequate. There is a dog park, and a walk down to a canoe/kayak put in. This park has a very rural feel, but works for us to visit the area. We would stay here again. - Living the Dream

We were traveling with Adventure Caravans on a paid tour so I am not certain about the nightly rate.
Yes. There are oaks. Plenty of them. We had oak leaves all over everything. The sites are spacious. There is a nice dog run. - Dreaming

We have stayed here many times before. This time on the road I called ahead early am to secure a site with the size of rig and tow vehicle. When we arrived they put us onto a site that fit the rig but not the pick up truck. I parked in the small site next to us, as long as no one showed up to use it. I asked to move to another site but staff didn't seem to want to do that even though there was no one on the sites that I was asking about. I believe staff should be able to move to a better site to accomadate the size of the rig and tow vehicle if the site that they assigned isn't big enough. I saw a small 15 to 17 foot scamper type trailer on a site that was way bigger than they needed and we were on a site that we fit but just barely. I later watched another fifth wheel attempt to pull into a site that he had to back into a site that he could have fit better only to pull forwards into a small site that was assigned him. He didn't have enough room to make the turn into his site without hitting a motor home on the other side of road. Not a great way to end the day after having been on the road for many hours to have this king of agrevation, very poor. - delacamper

This is a good campground for an overnight stay. Sites are on top of each other. Our sewer connection was under the picnic table for the site next door. We would not have been able to open our awning if we wanted. Staff at check-in weren't rude, but they were not friendly either. Just wanted to take our payment. We were guided to our site which is a good thing as the roads are fairly tight. With all of the other great campgrounds in the area, especially Skidaway, I would not suggest this CG for anything more than a one nighter. - teamfour

Everything was as expected, however it was the very first time at a KOA. So when I say expected, it was based on reviews I had read. I am new to camping, but very pleased with the helpfulness of the staff.
Lot spacing was very close and mostly shady. Site surface was dirt and sand, featuring a picnic table. - Poper
