Hardeeville RV Park is located at the southern edge of Hardeeville, about 20 minutes from Savannah and even closer to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. It’s where I have been staying the past couple months while I’ve been working at Lowe’s.
I’m not much for formal reviews, but here’s my opinion on the place.
The rates listed on the website are pretty close to accurate. Base daily rate is $50 a night, but they do have 50% off deals for Passport America and Camp Club USA. Being a Good Sam, AAA, AARP, Military, or senior citizen over 55 gets you a price of $30 a night. Weekly rates are $200, and the monthly rate when I stayed was $400 for the first month including all utilities, and $325 for each month after that with electric separate.
Utilities include 20, 30, and 50 amp at each site, sewer, water, cable, and spotty WiFi. Storage units are available at $75 a month, but I did not see what those looked like or how big they were. There are a couple dumpsters on site, and one small laundry building with 3 washers and dryers. There are no bathroom or shower facilities, so your rig needs to be self contained. Sites are well graveled and most seem quite level. Rita and her husband manage the site, I mostly dealt with her and she was pretty easy to get along with.
It’s large, well over 100 sites, and most of it is wooded as advertised. The sites near the main entrance by the office are not very wooded and are much closer together, those ones are primarily occupied by overnight and short term stay folks, the sites farther in the back and by the side entrance are for monthlies, and it’s clear that some of them have been here a long time.
Overall though, the place is much nicer looking and attracts a less shady crowd than Stony Crest did. Grounds maintenance gets done on a regular basis, trash is picked up, and the people I met in passing were all friendly. There is also a covered pavilion in the back of the park set in the woods, with plenty of room to host a large group. I don’t recall any events happening there while I stayed in the park, but it looks like that’s what it was made for.
I stayed in site 95, which is normally not a long term site because it’s near the highway and noisy, but that didn’t bother me. It gets sun in the morning as pictured, but is shaded in the afternoon, it was also a pull-through site. I’d say about 15% of the sites are pull-through, and there are plenty of sites large enough to handle rigs 40′ or longer. Overall, I give Hardeeville RV Park a thumbs up. Other than the road noise during rush hour to and from Savannah, it was a quiet park in a nice natural setting with a good amount of space between sites. Prices were reasonable for the area, and you’re looking to visit the Savannah area it’s a solid choice.

Tomorrow morning I’m leaving for the Badlands! All day I’ve been working on final preparations, and I just got back from eating at the Kickin’ Chicken in Bluffton with Julie to celebrate. Pretty much everything I can do has been done now, just finishing up laundry and doing a few online things. Expect that I’ll be slow responding to comments and emails for the next 4-5 days as I drive up there. There will probably be some video along the drive but not as much as it’s going to essentially be the same route as I took last year to get up to Sioux Falls, just with bit tacked on at the end. I heard back from the folks at the Lodge today and it sounds like there is still snow on the ground with more expected this week, fun times. Have a good week all!
