Greetings... My wife and I are thinking of going to Tybee late this summer. More specifically, Rivers End Campground and RV Park. We were wondering if any of you have stayed there, and if so what was your experience like. We are camping in a 30ft travel trailer with one small sofa slide. Thanks for any info provided.

Its not the best park I've stayed at but sure not the worst. I enjoyed my time there. Its walking or biking distance to the lighthouse. It sure is a long haul out there and as I recall there is only one road to get there.

The only complaint that I had was that it's a bit difficult to maneuver the streets getting to, and within the park, if you have a large rig. Other than that, it was a nice park in a decent location.

Yeah, Oak trees and narrow road made me a little nervous when first pulling in. No problem at all once I got past the office.
Lots of great places to eat on Tybee. One of the most seldom mentioned, and one of my favorites is Stingray's. Their steamed seafood platter is wonderful - and it's HUGE!

I rode by and took a look one time and it looked way to cramped for me. That said the place was full so everyone doesn't think like I do on this.

An alternative may be Skidaway Island State Park. Huge sites. Not too far away from Tybee. Close to Savannah as well.

Now sure if you've checked RV Park Reviews.com or not, but I've posted a clicky for you below for Rivers End CG.

We stayed on the island back in the late 90's, but not in a camper. Drove thorough Rivers End and I thought it was acceptable. Besides, there isn't another CG on Tybee and it's close to Savannah, which we enjoyed a lot.

We have stayed at Tybee. Not fancy. Friendly staff. Full facilities. Close to Lighthouse and fort museum. Been there twice. We'll go back again.

Great State Park about 20 miles away but easy drive!

Rivers End WAY WAY to tight

We stayed at Rivers End a few years back. Not bad. It was nice because they have tickets available for purchase to travel around Savannah via Trolley. The Trolley company has a van come out to the campgrounds and pick you up around 8 in the morning and takes you into the boarding place. You can get on and off all day but just have to be back late in the afternoon and they will then take you back to the campgrounds. Really worked out well.

Also if you want a neat eating experience, go towards Savannah a little ways from Tybee and on the left you will see a sign for "The Crab Shack". You drive back a stone drive back in and have a really fun eating experience. You can order a sampler that is brought to you on a big pizza pan - enough for two - there is a little gift shop and a few gators around.
Also entering Savannah there is a place called Bubba's. didn't get a chance to go there but it is owned by Paula Deen's cousin, I believe.
If you drive into Tybee, be prepared to pay to park anywhere you go, even the Arby's. If not parking meters, then you need to purchase a parking pass.

Still, I would love to go back there again. Going out toward Tybee there is a really neat fort to tour.

Good Luck and Have Fun.
