Departing Sumter Oaks and SmartWeigh, our next mission was to get back to RI and out of this energy sapping heat (never happy are we)! Coastal GA RV Resort in Brunswick, GA would be our destination for today. Usually when we visit this area we stay at the nearby Blythe Island Regional Park but we had driven through this relatively new resort several years ago and it looked nice, was close to the highway and we knew satellite reception wouldn’t be an issue, unlike the heavily wooded Blythe campground. Perfect for a quick overnight stop.
Having been at a standstill for a few weeks the relatively easy 3-1/2 hour drive seemed a lot longer to us.
Note: Google did away with Classic Maps and we have not figured out how to eliminate the alternate routes shown above – the route we took is the one in blue.
According to the Coastal Georgia RV Resort website, there are 105 paved full hookup sites, mostly pull thrus but the peripheral sites are back ins. All are 35 feet wide, with lengths ranging from 60 to 70 feet. We checked in and were assigned to a pull thru site #205.
Maybe the sites are 35 feet wide, but that’s the total site width including the cement pad, grass and vegetation. The cement pads were wide enough for the coach tires to sit on comfortably, but with the slides out the patio area was very cramped. With the slide on the patio side extended it was a tight squeeze between it and the picnic table!
Once we were set up on our site (#205), even though the clouds looked a little ominous and showers were in the forecast, we took a walk around the resort. My lingering cold and the depressing heat have been negatively impacting my daily 10,000 step goal and quick overnight stops don’t help either, but I suppose a short walk is better than no walk!
On each site here there is a magnolia tree, many had flowers in bloom. When these reach mature size, they will be quite pretty. We commented on the fact that the sparse vegetation we had seen during our drive through several years ago had grown considerably. It still doesn’t provide full privacy between the sites but there is some. Over time, it should provide a fairly dense natural screen.
Nice park for a one nighter or a few days to explore the many attractions in this area, but we wouldn’t consider this a destination campground, although some do. For more details read our detailed review (Coming Soon).
Since we’ve been to the area several times before, visiting Brunswick, Jekyll Island, St. Simons, Fort Frederica, etc. we had no interest in racing out to do any sightseeing. So it was a quiet night, doing mundane chores. Pretty boring and certainly nothing worth writing about.
Our next destination was a little more interesting! Stay tuned!
