At just one half mile off the interstate, this KOA is a very convenient stopover point if you’re headed north or south on I-95 in Georgia.  However, it’s not the best location if your purpose for staying there is to explore Savannah as it’s about 25 miles away.  It is well maintained but the roads are a bit tight, especially for big rigs.  We’ve stayed here a few times  over the past three years, mostly in standard full hook-up sites but once in a deluxe patio site #26A.  The deluxe patio site, while very nice, left us feeling separated from the rest of the campground because it was literally a fenced in site in the middle of the campground.  Overall, though, it was a nice long level gravel site and a nice spot to hang out for the evening.

On our most recent stay in early January 2020, we had a different experience staying in site #44, which was a full hook up, gravel pull-through.  It was not level and very tight to exit from.  Our rig is 36′ long and we tow a Ford Focus.   If our toad had been one foot longer, we would not have fit in the site.  When we stay at this KOA again, we would try to avoid this site.

As far as connectivity goes, we had a great, fast Verizon signal.  Wifi at this campground is provided by Tengo which we did not connect to for a test but they do provide it for free.  On our next stay, we will make sure to connect to Wifi for a test.

This KOA offers other nice amenities like a pool in season, a playground, an enclosed dog park, a camp store, trash pick up at your site, cable TV and a lovely 35 acre fishing lake which is home to lots of swans, egrets and herons.  There is also a bathhouse and laundry which we did not need to use but they appeared to be clean and well maintained.

Overall, this is a nice stopover location which we will most likely utilize again while traveling I-95.  However, if we were in the area to explore Savannah, we would prefer to be closer and would check out other campgrounds for that purpose.
