A month ago, I sold my Rockwood Freedom 1910 pop-up camper. I wanted to upgrade to a travel trailer...and I did! I bought a 2014 Salem Cruise Lite from a couple who were upgrading to something bigger as well. I love my new-to-me camper!!
Bella, my geo-caching, camping-loving dog, & I took it out last week on our maiden voyage. We went to Fort McAllister in Richmond Hill, GA. This GA State Park is only 8 miles off I-95 (exit to Hwy 144). It's a great place to stay. The campsites are drive-thru and large. There's foliage & some trees between sites. You can see your neighbor but they're not right next to you like other places I've stayed. The comfort stations were well-maintained and clean. The office area also serves as a historic Civil War museum. Located behind that is a battle ground that has cannons, mortar shelters, and other remnants of the war. The park has about 55 campsites, a boat dock, nature trails, and salt-water fishing pier. They are very dog-friendly. I talked with some camp hosts who offered to help me in anyway I needed since I was alone and on my inaugural trip. They were super nice.
Of special note..... there's a "Dick Gore's RV World" right off I-95 at the Hwy 144 exit. If any RV supplies or parts are needed.
The only bad thing I ran into are those dad-gum sand gnats!! They are vicious. But they'll be at almost any campsite in southeast Georgia this time of year!
Great few days of camping. Love my new-to-me Cruise Lite!!
