A boat ramp is also accessible for getting out on the surrounding waterways, and regular events are held during national holiday periods.
Richmond Hill campers are on the doorstep of the Fort McAllister State Park, which lies amidst a large salt marsh framed by giant oak trees. Aside from its heritage-listed fort, the park is also home to a museum where you can browse a range of artifacts dating from the Civil War period. The Fort McAllister State Park is also a good base for exploring the Ogeechee River, which was settled for centuries by the Mississippians and Yuchi before the arrival of Europeans.
Just to the east of the Fort McAllister Campground is the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge, which sprawls across a barrier island to the southeast of Savannah. It encompasses more than 10,000 acres of salt marsh, coastal forest, and dunes, with some parts accessible for hiking, kayaking, and wildlife watching. Rent a private boat to spend a leisurely day exploring the scenic landscapes of the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge or join a guided kayaking tour to slowly paddle around the island while spotting the island’s myriad birdlife.
Another nearby alternative that’s accessible by road is the Skidaway Island State Park, which borders the Skidaway Narrows. Follow one of the hiking trails that wind through the salt marsh and maritime forest before opening out onto boardwalks or head to the observation tower to get a bird’s eye view of the park. Aside from plenty of birdlife, the park is also home to native deer, raccoons, and fiddler crabs, with an interpretive center where you can learn more about the region’s ecology.

It forms part of the Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail that also includes the Richmond Hill Veterans Monument, where veterans from every war since World War I are remembered.
Camp in an RV near Richmond Hill and spend a day visiting the sights of Savannah, which lies just 45 minutes’ drive away. It’s renowned for its atmospheric streets and antebellum architecture that can be explored on a horse-drawn carriage tour. Wander through the cobblestoned squares of the historic district and admire the Gothic Revival-style Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, then relax in one the gorgeous parks shaded by Spanish moss-covered oaks. Another green space to visit is the Bonaventure Cemetery - a 100-acre traditional Victorian cemetery that’s a popular destination for locals to picnic on weekends. Savannah is also incredibly picturesque when viewed from the water on an authentic riverboat sightseeing cruise.
