While we're here for just an overnight stay on our way North, this campground is extremely nice and the staff couldn't be nicer. The Lake, teeming with Mute Swans, Geese and Wood Duck were a great treat. Will plan to make this a stop for our trips back and forth from PA to FL in the future! We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a large campground about 15 miles south of Savannah. Very convenient off the interstate, and not a bad little trip into Savannah at all. Great staff, paved interior roads with typical KOA gravel sites. The pond is a BIG plus. Fun to watch all the swans and geese. Lots of shade. We lucked out at site 15 so satellite dish worked. A very pleasant place to stay. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

We used this campground as our base for Savannah, Hilton Head, St Simon and Jekyll Islands. We weren't here much during the day, but it was certainly quiet in the evenings. The staff is helpful with arrival and parking the camper. Also, the power went out on our row of sites, but they were able to fix the problem quickly.

Just stayed one night as a convenient pull off on I95. This is a full resort campground that is suitable for family and extended visits into Savannah or just overnite like us. Roads & sites were well kept & level gravel. Tengo internet was free, reasonably fast and reliable as were other services including a nice channel selection on cable TV. Catch and release fishing is free at the pretty lake and the tall pines provide a nice setting. Staff very helpful at check in AND had responded to my site request from my online reservation note. Pool was nice but closed for the season. Will definitely use this as a stop in the future again! We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Motorhome.

Mollie McPhersons Scottish pub offers authentic Scots fare alongside standard pub fare. Wonderful fish pie (salmon, shrimp and haddock) and haddock fish and chips, Scotch eggs and meat pies. Good draft beers & ale and a wide selection of ...yup...Scotch!

Coming off 95: head east on 17 about 1/4 mile on left. KOA is in the other direction about 1 mile.

Besides the sites of Savannah, the passworded Tengo internet here is good enough reason to stay here. The park was continually full, and the internet connections, speed, and response times continued to be excellent. RV Park is located off i-95 on U.S. highway 17. It is 22 miles south of downtown Savannah. Our rate was a KOA rate. Rates vary widely depending on KOA, length of stay, amperage, and patios. In order to get a good campsite for over a week in March, we had to make reservations 2 months in advance. They are continually turning away campers that drive in with no reservations. This park has just about everything including a well stocked store, and nearby stores which have pretty much anything you may have forgotten to bring including groceries and camping supplies. We had a pull-through on the edge of the park with full hook-ups right on the side of the motor home. Some site's hook-ups are all the way in the back of the site. They have tall pine trees, swans, cardinals, red-headed woodpeckers, and squirrels. They have asphalt driveways and gravel pads, and mowed grass around the edge of the pads. They have picnic tables. BBQ grills and asphalt pads come with the patio sites. Fire rings are available on request. They have screw in sewer connections. Water pressure was good at 60 psi. Electrical is 30 and 50 amps. If you are quiet at night, you can hear the train and the train whistle. In the back of the park there is a 'metered section' with camp sites and cabins for long term residents. There is cable TV with 57 channels from Comcast in Hinesville. Verizon Wireless was 5 out of 5 bars; ATT wireless 3 out of 5 bars, 4G. Seventeen FM radio stations and 2 AM radio stations. There is trash pick up at the site. Spring came early this year so the Azalea blooms were just about finished. There were small biting Black Gnats (Buffalo Gnats) about 1/8 inch long which made insect repellent necessary. The bites itched like crazy. We would camp here again.

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.
