This was a pleasant park to stay at, outside Savannah. We would have liked to be closer to the city, but no other, closer campgrounds had sites available. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a good CG to stay at while visiting in the area. We used it as as a base when visiting Savannah. It's about 30-40 minutes into Savannah. All sites are pull-thru. There are no site specific reservations available. It's first come, first served with check-in at 1PM. If you don't want to face your neighbors, you need to select one of the sites on the right side of the 1st road in the CG. Specifically sites 4,6,8,9,11,13,15,17. We were in site 9 and had an unobstructed view of the marsh. The problem we had though were sand flies (sand fleas). They were numerous and not deterred by any bug sprays. I don't know if spots further away from the marsh had the same issue. It is a remote park with the CG at the end of a causeway. The causeway road is navigable but there are numerous pot holes that require close attention to the road. There are 2 hiking trails, but the one near the park entrance is still closed due to hurricane damage. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a smashing location over looking the salt marshes and alive with deer and raccoons. The trees are huge and slow the breezes. The museum and fort are exceptionally well done and deserve a full visit...five stars here! The only problem is that the weekends will have been booked up to 13 months ahead, consequently you will likely get kicked out on a Friday.

Recovering from storm damage. A lot of trees missing. Campsites seem smaller than before. Very few sites we could use with a 39 ft. 5th wheel. Feel it is a bit pricey for just water and 30 amp power. No cable which most are poor and no wi-fi. Worst thing is insects. Have been told insects are terrible in the summer. We were there in Feb. and the insects were terrible. The entrance is gated which is good. Overall it's a state park and not bad. All sites are packed dirt which is O.K. This was our 4th time since 2005. Will probably go back again. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Fort McAllister is located near Richmond Hill, Georgia about 20 miles or so south of Savannah. It is perhaps 15 miles off of I-95 so very quiet and remote. The campground itself is at the end of a long causeway. The sites are mostly very large with many pull throughs and generally level. They are rustic and it would be difficult to find your way at night as it is not clear where the edges of the sites are or the driveway in. Some of the roads in have tight turns and might be difficult for large rigs though there certainly are large rigs here. The restrooms are clean but very dated. They are in definite need of refurbishment. The causeway is also very rough - not so bad for the RV but very rough for bike riding. This is a tough place to be without a car as it is very remote and difficult to get far on a bike. There are no bike paths here. The tent sites here look very nice - spacious and all with raised platforms for pitching the tent and plenty of space for parking a couple of cars. There are plenty of camp hosts here and they are friendly and helpful. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort McAllister Basics: Roads paved but a bit rough in spots. Sites for rv's are mostly pull throughs on packed sand and are pretty level with water and 30 amp service. Dump station is on the way out and if you want to fill your fresh water tank do it at your site. Bathrooms are dated but were clean with good hot water and pressure. A Gate code needed to get into the park. They have no Wifi but Verizon Phone and Mifi worked well. There is a high level of racoon activity so you really have to make sure you leave no garbage or food about or the fuzzy bandits will clean you out. A note on the $15/day. The base rate was $32/day. They gave me a 20% senior discount, 3.75% for being a retired FF and this winter they had a 50% discount for just coming out and using the camping at the park. Check the Ga. State Parks website for the promotion code. This was a nice quiet island site surrounded by tidal marsh. There is an additional charge to go see the Fort and museum. If we are in the area again we will stay here again. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, but lots of bugs - seemed like the gnat type, and when they swarmed they were everywhere. Our site was ok for our 45' rig pulled by an HDT, but driving through the campground to find our spot was kind of tight. There were a couple of turns that we couldn't make. While they advertise that all spots are 50', you may have trouble if your total length with a 5th wheel is 65' or more (like us), although height didn't seem to be much of an issue. There are several spots we would have fit in, but since it's first-come first-served you could be in a pickle if it's full or you don't get there early. There are a LOT of trees and curves - DON'T do this one in the dark if you're not small and familiar with it! At least you don't have to worry about people racing through the campground - the dirt roads are not in any condition for speed, so it's pretty quiet and calm. Also, the town is about 12 miles away, so you are fairly remote. The fort is fun and very educational, very much worth your time. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Richmond Hill is fairly close and has everything you'd need including many choices for dining and shopping. There's a Goodwill across the street from the Post Office - great if you're a full-timer still divesting. La Nopalera has good carnitas - one of our favorites because it's usually excellent and the leftovers make a good sandwich or second meal.

Beautiful campground about 35 minutes outside of Savannah. Our pull-through site was spacious with water and 30 amp service. There were plenty of sites for big rigs - our rig is over 42 feet and we had no problem - site 49 was perfect. Due to the trees, we could not connect our satellite service, but there were plenty of OTA channels available. Restrooms were clean - hot showers with great water pressure. We even did laundry while there - clean machines - and very reasonably priced. $1.50 to wash a load and 75 cents to dry. There is a Publix store within 10-15 minutes along with plenty of options for gas/diesel. Walgreens and CVS are on the main road in Richmond Hill. Explored the Fort while here on Veteran's Day and hubby got in free due to his military service. The Fort and related museum contain lots of great information and artifacts from the Civil War era. Would love to return here in the future. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much shade as the last hurricane took out over 300 trees. All sites are pull through, but careful, the majority are not big enough for rigs over 30 feet. Sites are pretty sandy and be sure to bring bug repellent for gnats and horseflies. Staff is friendly, but this park needs a big hug. Quite surprising for Georgia that has among the best parks in the country. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

If you don't have a GA park pass, count on adding another $5.00 to the fee (one-time charge, but if you stay just one night, that's a hefty total of $37.00). The campground is located on an island in salt marshes south of Savannah, not too far off of I-95. Be sure to have bug spray handy for everything from flies to mosquitoes to ticks. The comfort station close to me was closed so I did not get a chance to check out the condition. It looks like laundry machines are available there, though. OTA TV signal good, Verizon signal came through, but slow. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Savanah area. Didn't spend a ton of time at the campground. Lots of hurricane damage that was mostly cleaned up, but some areas of the park are still closed. We got a pull through site and had plenty of room. Campground was quiet while we were there. We made a reservation, but reservations are not for a specific site. You just pick a site when you get there. Also, you cannot enter the park to check in after 10pm. We didn't know this, but we adjusted and spent the night at Cracker Barrel. The campground credited us one night on our reservation and let us check in at 9am the next morning, which I was surprised with. The policies seemed a bit odd, but didn't impact us too much. We visited the historic fort and the visitor center before we left. Was enough to spend about an hour, as there isn't too much to it, especially in the off season. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here over Thanksgiving week. We had water and 30amp electric but no sewer. They do have a dump station. Nice campground but many many trees down in some sections from Hurricane Matthew. The good news on that was we were able to get a Satellite signal with our little tailgater Dish. Cellphone service for Verizon was very weak even with the RV antenna/booster.

No problem navigating through the campground with a 31 ft Class A. Campground is surrounded by salt marsh and water ways; and is located about half a mile from the Fort. Their is also a boat ramp located at the far end of the campground. Bathrooms are ok but only one shower. They are heated though.

Sites are fairly level and are pull throughs. Their tent sites are very nice. They have a raised bed of sand for setting your tent on so rain will not drench the bottom of your tent. Kind of like a large sandbox. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed in a lot of state parks on this trip and this was a favorite. Nice sites and the river nearby. Two laundry facilities but the washer in one was broken and the dryer in the other. Made it work but luckily we had our bikes to go back and forth. We are in a van camper conversion. There isn't a choice of that selection here so the classification I picked of motor home isn't quite accurate. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

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