This is a fabulous campground! We make this stop part of our trip south every year. The staff is accommodating and friendly, immediately took us to our site and helped to back in and hook up. Several sites are on the water which is alive with birds and other habitat. Areas for all to enjoy the waters edge are available, shaded and quite pleasant. The swans are absolutely gorgeous and didn't bother us on our site the way ducks often do at other parks. It's great to watch kids enjoying the nature available here. I highly recommend this KOA to families and others! We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This KOA is unique. It's deluxe site is fabulous with resin furniture, table chairs, fire pit and even a propane grill. The staff is friendly. Some of the sites and roadways are tight for big rigs. I can only speak for the one night I was there but the unique part was the artillery shells exploding from the nearby army base. The vibrations literally caused the rig to shake for 15-20 intervals at night. The office staff was cavalier regarding the explosions. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We will not be returning to this park. The campsites are very, very tight and the traffic flow of the park leaves a lot to be desired. The roads are not big rig friendly. All hookups are at the back of the rig requiring 2 lengths of sewer hose and 2 cable cords hooked together. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a last minute reservation as we had planned to stay out in Tybee Island, but decided to move to KOA in Savannah for a pull through site. Are we glad we did. This is the BEST KOA IN THE SOUTHEAST, from the facilities, people and views. Not to mention how convenient it was to Savannah proper and I-95. We stay at a lot of KOA and other Parks, this has been one of the nicest ones thus far in terms of pure enjoyment. We stayed right after Hurricane Matthew hit so they were still cleaning up the damaged trees, but it was still gorgeous. Internet was hit or miss, but that was more with clean up, as when it was on it was fast. We stayed for 9 days and we live full time in our 5th wheel. I was there for work at the Savannah Film Festival. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend, but make a reservation as they are busy and generally always full. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great family park close to Savannah. Quiet at night and not much road noise. Easy in and tricky getting out in a big rig. Some sites have nice patios and all have picnic tables. There is a huge lake with many swans and ducks. Nice to look at. All of the permanent residents are in the back out of the way. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

You can catch the trolley that tours old Savannah right at the park office. It is an all day tour, plan accordingly. The camp store had everything you needed plus some local honey and souvenirs. The staff was really friendly and were helpful when we needed a repair service. We would stay here again.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

The "Old Town Trolley" is a good bargain and the best way to tour the historic squares of Savannah. You can get on and off the trolley at your convenience to do more exploring as you wish. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and accommodating.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Only stated one night, but we needed dinner. Went to a local Rib Joint. Amazing ribs, albeit looks like fast food, based in a mini plaza combo gas station, right by Sub Way. Don't be fooled by appearances the ribs were great, as was the service. I think the name was Smokin Pig...east out of KOA under 95 on left.

The camp ground has been well reviewed. The staff is as good or better than any other KOA we have visited. They we friendly and quite helpful. We were guided to our site. The grounds are well kept and very clean. The power is good as is the WiFi. Water pressure is 50 psi to my regulator. Hookups are close and easy. The camp store has good hours and even has some beer and wine - nice touch.
The location is great for pulling off of I-95 in transient. It is also excellent as a base for exploring Savannah, which is what we did. We were here for four nights. That's the good news.
The not so good - but not a deal breaker: The sites are generally quite close. Too close for sitting out by a fire or grill. Just a bit too close for me. Unless you are traveling through or have places to visit, this is not a "destination" camp ground. It is not a quite setting. We could hear road noise as well as trains at night. OK in February, but maybe not so in warmer months with the windows open.
All in all I would come here again. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Visit Savannah. It's well worth a few nights stay.
When you get off of Rt I-95. Look for the KOA sign just a mile up the road on the left. My GPS wanted me to go beyond it and make a U-turn. It is not necessary as a left turn into the KOA is very easy.
