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. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fish Tales at the marina just up the road is a good bet for a cold one and food. A new place, Melody's next to CVS on US-17, has just opened. We stopped for a drink and talked with the new owners. They are gearing the place for families and seem to be picking up a good following.

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. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I was planning on a no-frills space and that is what I found. We stayed here for one night as we were passing through. The site was spacious, but there was no pad or gravel so we parked the RV on the dirt. I let the toddlers and our dog run around until the bugs started to attack, then we pulled back into the RV where we watched bug after bug try to break in over the next few hours. I had only expected Electric hookups, but was surprised to find a water faucet. Not surprisingly the water pressure was next to none. A spilled glass of milk has more water pressure than the faucet here, but hey, it was a bonus right? The cost to stay here was $30 a night, which seemed a bit steep but acceptable. The other surprise we found was that GA state parks charge a 'car pass', which is $5 per visit. If you are staying here a week, its $5 which helps spread the cost. In our case, it was one night making our nightly total $35, which is what some regular RV campgrounds charge. I cannot really knock this place though, it was beautiful and quiet. I did enjoy our stay, sans the bugs. Would I recommend this park? Yes. Would we come back? Yes, probably . We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

The site we had was very big with a great view of the marsh. We only stayed one night as we were travelling through so I'm not sure about all the amenities. The camp host was very helpful, coming out to show me where the waste cans were when she saw me wandering around with a bag of garbage! We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Use as an overnight stop going/returning from Florida. Some big pull-through sites. Best navigated during daylight hours although we use after hours check-in with the friendly host. Dirt sites and roads, some narrow with low tree branches. No clear sky for satellite reception. Got AT&T cellphone service OK. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Another great Georgia park! We loved the huge pull-through site with strong 30-amp power, strong water, and a large table and fire pit. It was extremely quiet this time of the year, maybe not so much during the summer because I'm sure families must love this place. Plenty of space between sites where we stayed (#11). The dump station turnout was a bit tight for our RV. Roads are paved, sites are dirt and mostly level - we did not need our jacks. Several raccoons running around, and my wife was in "bird heaven"! Our Verizon phones and amplified Hotspot device worked great, and we were able to receive many TV channels, which was good since all the trees prevented satellite reception - fine with us! The restroom/laundry building near the camping entrance was fairly new, with clean restrooms and showers, the showers included hooks and benches. The laundry room consisted of one washer, one dryer and a folding table. The other building near the back of the park was older and not in such great shape. There were plenty of roads and trails to keep walkers and bicyclists happy, especially if you included the 1.3 mile access road to the camping area. There was a Publix grocery store about 6 miles up the road, downtown Savannah was about 25 miles away. We couldn't find anything wrong with this place - just what we like and we'll be back! We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park with large pull-through dirt campsites on an island surrounded by salt-marsh. The campground seems very popular with boaters as there is a boat launch in the campground with lots of boat trailer parking. There is a separate boat ramp area on the mainland for non-campers. Touring the earth works of the civil war fort is fun, interesting. and scenic. The only down side to this campground was the smell from the paper mill in Savannah was very noticeable the day we were there. The mill is about 10 miles (or more) away, but the wind conditions were just right that day to make it noticeable for several hours at least. When I asked a staff person who was working indoors what the smell was, she said it could be the low tide smell or the paper mill in Savannah. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We only stayed here for one night. The cost for 1 night is $28, but when you check in they want another $5 for the park fee. Kind of a strange arrangement as I have not seen this elsewhere, where the fee covers the park admittance. Anyway, it would have been nice to have more time here because the park staff puts together a lot of events at the fort. The campground is at the end of a mile long causeway. There are 4 hosts. We met 2 of them and they were extremely friendly and helpful. As we pulled into our spot, there was a raccoon in the next spot, but he was one of many we saw. There were also a lot of deer roaming around. We had not seen this much wildlife in a campground before. Make sure you don't leave any food outside that you don't want the critters to get. The reservations are not site specific so you may end up driving around the loops a couple of times looking for a spot. A big rig and a toad would probably want to un-hook and drive the toad through to scout a spot. The bath house was fairly new(with washer/dryer) and was very clean. Verizon data reception was 3 bars. Received 15 channels on the TV. Would like to come back to see more of what the park has to offer. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

About 10 minutes from I-95. Plenty of sites and most of them are pull through. Roads are a little narrow in spots; could be tight for a big rig. Most sites are level, but some get muddy with rain; could use some gravel in spots. Only one dumpster area for the campground; they need more trash cans at strategic intervals. Restrooms were clean. No cable TV but a few local stations were available by antenna. Grocery shopping is a few minutes from the park. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is another GA state park south of Savannah located on the Ogeechee River. The park consists of 1,725 acres, 65 campsites, and earthwork fort, civil war museum, boat ramps, fishing pier, playgrounds, over 4.3 miles of hiking and biking trails, fort tours, and saltwater fishing. The cost is $28 and the campsites are nestled among giant live oaks, salt marshes, and hiking trails. The campsites are very attractive and the campground is peaceful with the birds chirping away. There is a boat dock in the campground for those bringing their boats. The park is home of the best preserved earthwork fortifications of the Confederacy. It is definitely worth a visit. Visiting the Civil War Museum and Fort is an extra fee! We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park that was well maintained. All RV sites are pull-through with lots of space at each site and between each site. Heavily shaded sites with variety of trees and palms. Park has boat ramp and nice docks, including a fishing dock. Nice feature was a washer and a dryer at each restroom. Phone service worked when I stepped outside the canopy of trees; internet service, although a little slow using Verizon wireless device. Drive into Historic Savannah was 40 minutes and to Tybee Island was one hour. The museum inside the office and the tour of the fort was interesting. Enjoyed our stay. Price reflects a 10% senior discount. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects 20% senior discount. CG has lots of large level pull through sites to choose from. Very quiet location with almost no noise at night. This is one of our favorite GA state park CG. Several hiking trails and lots of deer in the park. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent at 4G. Best bet for a cold one is Fish Tales on the road to CG, $1 off during Happy Hour and very good food too. Avoid Augie's unless you like smoke, which it seems almost everyone does in there and then $3 plus tax for domestic bottles. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

As far as state parks I've been to just a few and I have to think this is among the better ones. Security was very good. The site was very large and fairly level. The only problems I had were no grass or gravel (bring plenty of outside floor mats), and the trash dumpsters were located too far away. There are grocery stores close by and Savannah is also close by. I would warn people about gnats in this location..certain times of the years it is unbearable..bring plenty of Skin So Soft, the only thing that seems to work. We were not affected by the gnats. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Easy to navigate. A lot to see and do in the area. The trees were trimmed so we could get under with our 12'8" high RV and didn't scratch it. Very nice. Would stay again if ever in the area. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.
