The Great Outdoors

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.

Exploring the City

RV camping at the Fort McAllister Campground is just 15 minutes' drive from the center of Richmond Hill, where there are supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies. There are also a couple of gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a handful of fast-food restaurants, pizzerias, and grills for dining out.If you want to learn about the people and events that have shaped the region, stop in at the Richmond Hill History Museum, which occupies the former Henry Ford Kindergarten. Also nearby is the Historic Bryan Neck Presbyterian Church, which has been serving the local congregation since 1830 and stands as the oldest public building in the county. 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.If you’re after a cultural fix, be sure to visit Savannah’s Telfair Museum, which is the oldest public art museum in the Southeast United States. It occupies two National Historic Landmark buildings that date to the early 19th century - the Telfair Academy and the Owens-Thomas House. After exploring the period rooms adorned with European and American paintings and decorative arts, check to see what’s happening at the contemporary Jepson Center where touring art exhibitions are regularly held.Whether you want to discover the wildlife refuges of Georgia or explore the storied streets of Savannah, book an RV in Bryan County and start planning your next vacation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
