stayed at fort mcallister campground for 2 nights in a tent. the campground is really very pretty in a marshy south georgia kind of way. great views of the marshlands. the staff was friendly and the facilities were clean. only one problem: the no-see-ums. what was i thinking, camping in south georgia in august. the tiny no-see-ums would attack and try to eat the flesh right off you like piranah fish. i would visit this park again, just not in august.

In the pines in the middle of the biggest swamp in Ga. 36 foot motorhome no problem. Quiet! Close to Savanah. Spent nearly a week there. Would do it again.

I was just reading the previous and wanted to correct an error. You can make reservations for this park at gastateparks.org,but reservations have to be made at least 2 days in advance. The wife and I really enjoyed our visit to the park and highly recommend it.

Fort McAllister State Historic Park Campground is off the same exit as the KOA (which the in-laws tell us is very nice), about ten minutes' drive east, two turns. Follow the signs. Not difficult to get to and worth the extra miles. The big drawback: no reservations, first-come/first-served, which means that a phone call just as you are in range of the place (say a half hour or less) or a drop-by off-season (very late fall, winter, and very early spring) might get you one of the fine sites in the mile-loop. Most campsites are pull-throughs with a combination of packed sand and grass... ok for big rigs, but best for anything under 30 or so feet. They only have two-way hookups, with a dump station conveniently located on the right at the end of the one-way loop (as you exit). The campground has an excellent nature trail (about a mile long) and you're at the end of a peninsula, looking out at the salt marsh. You can apparently rent canoes and kayaks, and there's a free boat ramp. There are a couple of fishing tables, too, if that's your gig. It was really nice just to walk around after driving all day. Oh yeah--free cable at GA State Parks! None of the sites has a much better view than the others, so go for the biggest, most private (an exterior of the circle) sites. The views are restricted by the green growth on the perimeter of the island. You can walk out to the marsh's edge from your site, at most sites, and birdwatch. Bring your Petersons. Additionally, the bathhouse was very clean, the staff is dedicated and friendly, the park is an environmental gem, and, last but definitely not least, there's a civil war fort with "mud walls" (interesting construction method) that was attacked successfully. We were there in December when they had some re-enactors, and it was exciting to walk down the mile or so (you could easily drive and easily find parking) from the campground and watch them (more southerners than yankees, of course) march around and shoot off their cannons. Cheap State park prices, too (it might have been 20 a night).
