3 Parks near Richmond Hill, Georgia
Oct 2015 - $32.00
We booked a couple of nights on a whim on our way home from Jekyll Island. I couldn't have been happier with this low key state park. You do have to pay a $5/day fee for any state parks in GA. We signed up on site for a "Friends of Georgia State Parks" family pass ($80) which gave us 2 free nights of camping and a year long parking pass...so it was the same price as what just camping 2 nights would've been and we get parking and 10% off for 12 months!
They have a "fort", though it's just remaining earthworks and a few other things. We felt it was too steep for not actually being a fort so we passed, since we've seen many other forts. But there is some history here so if you're a history buff you would probably enjoy it.
I've never stayed anywhere quite like this. The campground is on "Savage Island" which isn't really an island, but it feels like it as it's surrounded by a marsh. The 1/2 mile or so connecting land strip has really big beautiful views of marsh, river and birds. It was quite pretty. We did a couple of drive-thrus to find our site. The campground was very empty, probably only 15 campers in the whole park so we had our pick. We picked 46. It was a very pretty site with some good views and very private...also close to the bathrooms and dock. Site 50 was actually nicer, but further from the facilities. There are some sites on the marsh which have nice views but the campsites aren't as nice.
They have 2 bathrooms. The one closest to the docks is very old, dirty and a bit scary. But it's convenient. There is another one on the other side of the campground that is new and nice. But unless you're staying on that side of the campground it's too far away.
We rode our bikes on the trail in the campground. It's nothing special but there is a nice lookout over the river at one point.
The stars here were amazing. Head out to the middle of the connecting road and watch the sunset, the bats and see the stars. - Bkell1978

Sites are $32 per night and park passes are $5 per stay. Motorhomes now must also purchase a park pass. Seniors get 20% off on site fee. Our senior two day stay was $61.20 for a spacious 30 amp level pull thru site with water. Overall this SP is a great place with deer walking around. Very quiet here, absolutely no road noise. There are several walking trails here as well as the Fort. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband were also very good. - Bob and Inga

Our first time here an we were very impressed. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Since our reservations were not site specific, we drove around the loops several times before choosing a very spacious pull-through. We only had 30 amp service but made it through our two-day stay with no difficulty. We did enjoy the museum and a tour of the fort (extra charge) and drove once to Ft. Pulaski, which took us about 45 minutes, through downtown Savannah. The drive into the park was gorgeous and we enjoyed our stay very much. We would definitely stay here again. - Gus the Fireant

Park is close to I95 and staff is friendly and helpful. But, that does not make up for the small tight size of the campsites. We reserved a pull through and it was too small for our Coach and Toad and very tight and hard to negotiate out from the next morning. Site was hard dirt w gravel and level w full hookups. We would NOT stay here again. - David Fuller

Staff was pleasant & helpful. Roads fairly narrow but more than manageable. But they are 2-way. Need to watch out when leaving campground you may meet someone else trying to leave at the same time.
Trash picked up daily and plenty of park presence by staff.
Good electric. Our site had the services at the back of the site & we needed 25' of sewer hose. Had stayed here before just for an overnight, convenient to I-95 and stayed 3 nights this time. Lake had many swans, geese and other water fowl. Will saty again. Didn't have enough time to see all we wanted to do in the area. - MissingLinc
Nov 2015 - $45.00
The staff is so super helpful and friendly that I feel bad saying anything negative . But, we reserved sites months ago to meet friends and they "weren't available" when we got there. We were put on the main road into the campground and the sites were so tight that our friends could not open their awning all the way. Not fun, as it rained all 3 days we were there . I checked out the sites we reserved and while not large, would have given us more space. The kids playground was 10 ft from our door, but there were no kids in the campground so at least it was quiet from that standpoint. Now the real issue, traffic. The back of this campground is long term RV residents, lots of long term residents, and a "village" of cabins, lots of cabins, and the traffic in and out of this area never stops. Day and night, cars, trucks and golf carts coming and going right by our sites. Noisy, stinky, distracting and unacceptable. I'm sorry to say we won't return. - grumpysgal
