We called last week for reservations for this weekend and were told they were full up and had no vacancies. We came to Tybee Island instead. Today we drove up and there were several empty sites that we could have used. After seeing the place I am glad we did not stay there. Full of home steadeer and some RV have weeds growing around and under them. The sites were very tight and narrow. Who ever planed this campground has never been a camper. The cement patios would be very nice if they were a couple feet further from the steel posts agound the hookups. Just a bad experience driving a car through the place. Will not be back.

E.S. left this review using the Directory software: - We made reservations for a site for three nights, starting on 20 November. We arrived on the 20th to find the office closed. The office is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. When we made our reservation, but they did not tell us the office was closed two days a week. There was no camp host, so we were on our own. We checked out the campground and there were NO open sites. We had to chose between dry camp there or move on to another RV park. We will never return to Hunter AA RV park!

We arrived in our 30 foot motorhome - had a reservation made 2 months out and confirmed the week before arrival. However, we arrived and no sites were available. People pull into an empty site and stay even if they have no reservation. The staff does not make them leave for someone that has a reservation, what they did do was have us park next to a site and share the power (each site has 50amp and 30 amp avail). Everyone we talked to (there were several of the 16 sites) were permanent - people even leaving their RV and driving on a vacation in their car. Would be nice to have a camp host on site to monitor the site assignment. Having said all that--there was cable TV (plenty of stations), internet (you have to ask at the office for the password), nice concrete pads and picnic tables. Location was great for visiting Savannah.

HAAF directions are accurate and easy to follow. When it says to take an immediate left turn just inside the gate, believe it. I was there during the very bad rain mentioned in the previous review. It was very bad. I was in lot 6 and it was so flooded we could not park at the RV and walk to the door. I looked at trying to dig a ditch to drain the water, but it road is graded that way and it is rock. The cable was very limited, in fact I could get more off of the antenna. No internet except for cell phone. No camping ground facilities whatsoever. The post is small, but has good facilities. In general all were friendly and helpful. I do question why they put "homesteaders" in the pull thru slots. I had to work very hard to put my 38 ft 5th wheel into a badly angled back in.

As other reviewers have stated, this place is a mud hole when in rains! When the sun's out and it drys up some, it's fairly attractive. They have 16 sites. A "few" homesteaders is probably quite and understatement. Also, the fact that it's mostly pull-throughs with a few back-ins is reversed, in my opinion. We came for 4 nights with a reservation. All the nice sites (and pull-throughs) were taken by long-term campers (all but one locals). It had been raining for days and we were stuck with the last back-in that you could walk from the dinghy to the RV. There were 2 other sites left when we parked. The other 13 were mostly locals and looked like they had "set up for the summer." Whatever the site says about a 14-day limit is obviously not enforced. Maybe that means you can come in every 14 days and pay for the next 14 days. One other RV showed up while we were there and took a back-in that was under water when it was raining. Since that was a 42 to 45 foot coach, he wouldn't have had a place to park if we had taken that one. No showers, laundry, WiFi, etc; bare bones camping. Yes, they have cable, and that's great because the trees block satellite; but, I only found 37 channels. With public access and duplicates; maybe 10 to 15. Lest this sound completely negative, I was glad to have a place with full-hookups in Savannah for $22 a night. The electric was good, the water had good pressure, and our Verizon phones and MiFi worked great. I enjoy staying on-post, inside the gate and security checks. I would come here again. Finally, I'm not sure how they manage reservations. We made one, but they've been closed the whole time we've been here. If a "drop in" takes the last site; what about your reservation? I don't know how that works. There's only one site left now and they're still closed. What if a drop in takes it and someone had a reservation? An on-site host would be nice.

L.S. left this review using the Directory software: - Very handy to everything in Savannah. Needs some serious work though. There are several homesteaders. Especially the site with the padded lawn furniture. It is in the woods and muddy when it rains. They did mow the grass, but left all the clippings that blew onto our patio there. They never weed-eated, and the grass around our fire pit was taller than the pit. It could be a lovely park, but someone needs to take care of it!!!!

We stayed here in our 40' 5th wheel with no issues. The sites are mostly pull thrus off the road with a couple back ins. There is a number of trees around the sites which give the campground it's feel. All the sites had a fire pit and a cement pad with picnic table. If you have a DoD sticker, the gate is just outside, easy in easy out. Savannah has a lot to offer and access is great. The park is a basic FHU park with no other amenities. We had no problem with the voltage, water pressure was good. Their cable channels left a lot to be desired but did have the basics (6 or 7 channels only). We were able to get our satalite but some of the spots whould be hard pressed to get satellite. We would stay here again when in the area.

We are in Savannah on a Yankee Tour for the St. Pats Parade and it has been about 12 years since we had seen the campground so decided to check it out. It was about half full and no one around to talk to so used an average rating based on what we could see. The location to all the fun stuff in Savannah is great but it is very treesy so probably would have difficulty getting a signal to watch TV via satellite and did not see any cable being used. The sites are located very close to the roads going through the campground and many you would have to be very careful that your slides did not hit the large metal yellow posts around the electric pedastal. We actually did see a fifth wheel have a slide touching the post but it look like an abandoned unit. The grounds were thick with dead leaves and branches so you would have to walk your pets on the roads I guess but probably come spring time this would be cleaned out. Doubt our Zephyr would be able to maneuver in and out of most sites due to trees and posts but one or two sites might be okay. Since no one around we could not ask about the low voltage someone previously mentioned.

If you do not have a Sticker you will need to enter Hunter at the “Montgomery” Gate to sign in then proceed to the Rio Rd. gate, the campgrounds are located next to the “Rio” Gate. The grounds office personnel are very helpful & friendly the same goes for the gate guards! There is no Laundry, Showers or Toilets… There is full hock-up and our camper has a shower and toilet so no problem but we missed the laundry. We had problems with the camp Wi-Fi, better said it is almost worthless we even stood next to the antenna with our laptops!... However across the street is a Target with a customer Wi-Fi in which works good if you sit outside of your camper, you may have to walk over to the fence or drive over to their parking lot, no code is needed. The campgrounds picks up the city noises thus not quite; however the trees make the surroundings absolutely beautiful! Lot #6 is muddy and under water when it rains (with the exception of the concrete slab)! We were on lot #5 it also has some standing water when it rains but you will be able to get from your car to camper without wading in water & mud; however will not be able to walk a circle around your trailer without boots on. The other lots do not have standing water problems. The fitness center is a dream; the PX & Commissary are adequate. There is a Walmart just around the corner… across the street from Target. Hunter is very close to the touristic/historic parts of Savannah and probably needless to say Savannah is absolutely great! Our word for Savannah is “WOW” ! ;-) My advice… “Go to Savannah and RV at Hunter!!!”

We had to enter the base at the Montgomery gate since we don't have a base sticker. It wasn't a big deal. We were almost to Rio Rd and got turned around due to a 'situation' up ahead...that was a minor bummer. But the MP called the Rio gate to advise them we were coming and they were very cordial and helpful when we arrived almost 30 minutes later. We didn't have any problem with low voltage so that must have been a one-time problem. The ladies in the office where we registered were very helpful and friendly. The Rio gate guards went above the call of duty when I had to get a few groceries at the Walmart just around the corner...I asked them if I had to go all the way around to go in the north gate since I don't have a sticker...the guard took my info and when I came back an hour later, the new guard had my info and let me in. I would come back here. The lack of facilities wasn't a problem...most of us have bathrooms in our rv's and showers; since there are full hook-ups, what is the problem?

This was our second visit 11 months apart. Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the south so the location is excellent. There was not a camp host last year, and there is no longer one now. The base gas station is within a couple miles; easy in, easy out even with a tow. Other base facilities--commissary, bx,laundromat,hospital etc are 10 or more miles away. BUT there are large shopping centers within a mile out the Rio Gate including WalMart. This is a bare bones famcamp. While there are cement patios with nice power pedestals, the tires rest on hard-packed sand and gravel. Some sites can be muddy. Cable available but did not work at our site (#3). There are no bath house or laundry facilities. Problem both times was low voltage which greatly affected our 1996 Class A motorcoach. Our concern was immediately addressed with base electricians coming out. Their response was, "Anything plus or minus 10% was OK." Not for us. Voltage varied from our site at 114 to our neighbor's at 110. Sadly, because of this adverse affect, we will not be able to return to this fam camp. Joyce, the lady at the MWR office, was very helpful and friendly. Would love to see some MWR funds put into this prime location.

Enjoyed our stay here very much. We were surprised to find out there was a camp host and they were very hospitable and helpful. The location is great for visiting Sanannah and we will return. Will look forward to WiFi being available on our next visit.

Enjoyed our stay here very much. We were surprised to find out there was a camp host and they were very hospitable and helpful. The location is great for visiting Sanannah and we will return. Will look forward to WiFi being available on our next visit.

Since last visit this camp has changed like night and day. The new camp hosts have hand raked almost the entire campground. They keep the grounds neatly trimmed and clean of tree debris. They are very courteous and friendly and informative. The price is $22, with a $4 reduction with the Golden Age pass. The MWR office can NO longer issue temp passes for length of stay by order of base Commander. Without DOD sticker it can be really inconvenient and you will need to enter at the Montgomery gate which is on the opposite side of the base from the campground. A shower/laundry house would be nice and the camp hosts stated they are contemplating building one. WiFi was unavailable during our stay but a WiFi antenna has been erected and will be ready in November 2012. Cable TV is available but very limited. This campground is a very good place to stay when visiting the area. Well worth the price.

Want to upgrade some info listed. There is a camp host on duty, and they have done a lot of work to improve the grounds. Very courteous and friendly. The price is $22, with a $4 reduction with the Federal "geezer" pass. If they would add a small bath house and laundry facility, it would be nice. Signs directing you to the cg would be nice, as well as signs inside advising where the host is and registering procedures. If the host doesn't happen to see you coming in, you're on your own to figure it out. The directions given are spot on, provided you have military post registration stickers on your vehicles. If not, you must go around to the Montgomery gate and show proof on registration and insurance every time you enter. Only installation we've been on recently that does this. It would be nice if they at least issued a temporary pass for the length of your stay, but they don't. Overall, enjoyed our stay and we'll be back.

I stayed here in a 33-foot Class A motorhome on 19 June and again on 27 June. This is a basic, OK campground. The sites are fairly well-developed with water, electricity, and sewers. All sites have cable connections, but on 27 June the cable connection did not function. No amenities at all; no laundry,no showers, no pool, no playground, no dog park, just a place to camp. Decent, metal picnic tables, and all sites have fire rings. The grills at the sites looked pretty rough. No camp host. I made reservations by phone, but did not have a warm fuzzy about having a sure-thing site, since my instructions were to pull in and pick any open site. Payment was by dropping your check into a box nailed to a tree. I dropped it off on 27 June. Today is 15 July, and they have not cashed it yet.

They have lowered rates from $25 down to $22 I believe and give another $4 off for Golden Age Pass. Figures may be off a dollar or so but it is a decent price. Also, I think the mess hall is open to retirees though I haven't eaten there.

We stayed here for 5 nights . Location is very good, not too far from I-95, very close to Savannah. This campground was upgraded last year. I too think it would be beneficial to have a host in the campground. The campground is in the woods and most of the sites are pull throughs, long and narrow. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel with 4 slides out and had difficulty finding a site that was good for our camper. There are concrete pads and a picnic table which is cemented into the pad. It was challenging to be able to open our slides. Where the hook ups are there was also 3 cement posts, think it's to protect the hook ups. We have 3 slides on that side of our camper. There might have been other sites that would have been easier but the campground didn't have too many sites available. I did notice that some other RV's that came in during our stay had some difficulty too. As others have said if you have the stickers for your vehicle you are all set to get on the base. Overall you can't beat the price and we would probably go back again if we are in the area.

Can't beat the location if you want to be near Savannah. The wooded area is nice but it is near a highway that can get noisy. But it was no problem. We have stickers on our motorhome and tow vehicle so it could not have been easier to get on base through the Rio Gate. The gate is open 24 hours. The grounds have been mowed and cleaned up but it is a bit sparse. The large trees were no problem for our satellite dish in site #2. There is no camphost or office nearby and no laundry. The campground has undergone an upgrade to the infrastructure with new concrete pads, new water faucets and electrical 30/50 amp posts. Many sites are pull throughs. We went over to the Outdoor Rec office to pay for our site which cost us $16/nite. We have a National Park pass which they acknowledged. Can't beat the proximity to Savannah. Perfect time of the season to be here. Few campers and no neighbor noise. Bass Pro Shop, Wal Mart, Target and other stores near by. We will be back.

After reading the previous reviews, we almost didn't stay here. This is a great location to visit Savannah and the surrounding areas. The sites have plenty of room. Our picnic table was dirty, but with just a little work it was in fine shape. Our satellite wouldn't pick up a signal because of the trees, but the cable service provided many channels. We enjoyed walking and playing golf on base. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and if in the area again, we would stay here.

If you have a sticker on your camper you can enter via rio gate - if not, expect a long drive on the perimeter road and the trees are just the right height to twang your antennae but not low enough to do any damage. The campground is in need of a good cleaning and mowing, agree with former posters that we (the users) need to do our part and leave it cleaner than we arrived. It is very quiet here most of the time, you are near a hospital (off the base) and the occasional siren will break the silence. It is very crowded right now, all but two sites are in use, snow birds going home I suspect. With a big rig, the "pull-thru" option does test your skills on some of the sites. I'm in site 6 which is a back in as are about 5 others. Overall a great option if you're visiting Savannah or traveling North on 95. Don't forget to show your "America the beautiful" or Senior pass to get another $2 off the usual fee.
