Savannah South KOA Review

On our very long drive back to South Florida from Ohio, we stayed the night at the Savannah South KOA.  I am quickly becoming a fan of the KOA, as we stayed in two of them this summer.  This particular campsite seems like it would be a great getaway for a couple of days this fall or winter since it is about 8 hours from Fort Lauderdale,  The KOA is less than 20 minutes from Savannah, and if you have never had the chance to walk around there it is a fabulous walking town!

The cabin cost us around $50 a night so I felt it was a great deal.  It had AC and heat, one full sized bed and a set of single bunk beds.  The bathrooms and showers were a short walk away.  There was a BBQ Grill and a picnic table and you could park your car nice and close to the cabin.
We pulled into the site around 4:30 pm, it was extremely hot and the dashboard said it was 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  The staff were all very friendly and helpful and directed us back to our cabin.
The cabin was clean and set on a lake with a small front porch and bench.  There were all kinds of ducks and swans roaming around on the lake and the scenery was amazing.  I could have set out on the porch all evening if the heat had not been so oppressive.
The good thing about staying in a KOA cabin is that they, as I have mentioned, have AC and heat.  It worked wonderfully for us while on our road trip.  I love to camp, but when you are traveling with a little one the idea of dealing with a tent can be a bit overwhelming.  If you are arriving on a very hot day, I would advise that you call when you about an hour away and ask them to turn on the AC so it can start working.

The AC in our cabin was a bit small for the space and it didn’t really work all that well.  It kept the cabin bearable but if you like it cold, this unit just couldn’t compete with the unusually high temperatures the area was experiencing in June.  Free wifi is also available and you know that is important to me.
The bathrooms, cabins, and laundry room were all pretty clean and seemed to be well within the KOA standards.

We had a lovely evening there, we took a walk around the lake to look at the birds, kept cool in the pool and tried to play on the playground.  The pool was clean and large and kept us cool in the excessive heat.  The shop had any extras that you might need for very reasonable prices.  They also have a great selection of wine, however just remember that you can’t buy alcohol on Sundays in Georgia, so plan ahead!

The playground is not designed for small children at all.  It has one of those old really high slides and metal teeter totters that big kids will love, but look really dangerous for small kids.  I put pictures of it below so you can make up your own mind on it.  If you have little ones you will also need to keep in mind that there is at least one alligator in the lake, so keep your eyes on the little ones at all times.  There is also fishing and canoeing available.
There was a game room with a TV (I didn’t check to see if it worked) and two pool tables (you need quarters to play).
The other rather odd thing is that the pool does not open until 10:00 or 10:30 am (can’t remember which) according to the sign.  I wanted to have a quick swim before we pulled out in the morning and when I asked at the shop at 9 am they unlocked it for us anyway.  Not sure why they wouldn’t unlock it earlier, but they did accommodate us.
We stayed at another KOA near Asheville NC on our way to Ohio and I will get that posted ASAP!
