River’s End Campground & RV Park is located on the Georgia coast near the South Carolina/Georgia border on a little island called Tybee Island. With the historic town of Savannah within a 15 minute drive, there is lots to do here.
Since purchasing our RV in 2013, we have stayed at River’s End Campground about 5 times. We love the fact that it is so close to the beach, an easy commute to Savannah, and just blocks from the beach!
Setting: Lots of moss covered hardwoods offering shade, picnic tables, fire pits, level gravel lots. The park offers full hook up and the park in general is big rig friendly. You are only three blocks from the beach, and the Tybee Island light house.
This photo was taken during the off season in late fall. During the busy time of the year, this park is pretty darn slammed. And we have to tell you that spots are very close. We very much prefer the spots along the main road. They are easy to pull in and out of and give a little more space.
Notes: Big rigs need to be particular careful of the hanging branches. While we cleared nicely, it was still a bit nerve wracking if you happened to be parked underneath one of these huge tree branches. Also, during peak season, maneuvering through the park in a big rig can be very tight.
While we do prefer the roadside lots, we need to note that traffic on that road is busy at times. It can get noisy as the police station is right next door to the campground. Care is needed when using the road for biking to the beach.
Swimming Pool- River’s End boasts the largest swimming pool on Tybee Island. And it is very nice. It is only open during the peak season from about April to September. And they do not offer lifeguards, so supervision of children is a must.
Staff is very friendly and helpful when needed. They even delivered wood to our doorstep on our last stay. When we were hit by an unusual snow storm in Atlanta last year, we needed to postpone our trip to Tybee. The staff was very supportive and at our request, held our deposit until we were ready to reschedule a few months later.
Dog Friendly– the park itself offers two different dog parks, one for small and one for large dogs. Folks don’t necessarily pay much attention to the size restrictions as the smaller dog park is much closer than the other. They do offer bags and trash cans in the dog park to dispose of waste.
On the negative side, they do not offer dog waste cans and bags in the campground itself, which I definitely prefer. And the main stickler (while it is no fault of the campground) is the fact that dogs are not allowed on any of Tybee Island’s beaches.
The positives? Well check out the beautiful lighthouse that is only three blocks from the campground! Further down the beach are a fishing pier, lots of shopping, and some fantastic restaurants.
Don’t feel like cooking? The North Beach Bar and Grill is located right by the lighthouse, three blocks from the campground. They serve a fabulous margarita. Just saying.
