What’s the Word: Sue & Dave on Campendium say, “This is our first KOA experience and was very nice. Spots are gravel and level with some having patios. Tall thin trees with plenty of shade but not in the way for parking. Nice lake for fishing. Swimming pool well maintained as well as laundry room.”

What’s the Word: Casa on Campendium says, “This is in a great location, just off I-95, but far enough away that we heard zero road noise. The loudest things in the area are a neighbor’s chickens, though they didn’t bother us. No trees for shade. Still, it’s a decent RV park with reasonably-sized spaces”
Savannah GA Campgrounds Vibe: 7.6/10 Unique campground & very well maintained
Savannah Trade and Convention Center
Miles to Downtown Savannah: 1 mile walk – It’s smack dab in the middle of downtown!

The price has gone up over the past years, but we still think the value is great!
What’s the Word: Nick on Campendium says, “They took a 2 night stay for us to dry camp in an ‘open field’ that is directly across the river from downtown and we will be able to take a free ferry across to sightsee. The cost IS $30 a night”
