I went with a large group to this campground. First, they "lost" our reservation. We called to confirm a week prior, and they were reminded of our reservation and said they'd be ready for us. Friday night and the group site was not mowed. There was one fire pit and one picnic table on the site, not enough for a... More

I was told by numerous park rangers that tent camping is first come first server and they don't take advance payments or reservations. This is absurd. I called and they said "yeah we have 2 spots open at the moment". It took me a couple of hours to pack my truck , leave work early, get firewood and drive an... More

This is our second time camping at Savannah's Rec campground. This is a county park and has all the features of a larger campground with out the price. They have full hook up sites, a laundry facility, great backcountry camping, a small walking trail with a lookout tower and a NEW DOG PARK! We couldn't be more excited about this... More

This RV site is phenomenal. Full hookups, and so much space around that you feel it's your own private oasis. I could put three rigs on my site! Ponds and lakes surround us, wildlife abounds, you are allowed fires, beach minutes away, lots of bike trails and walking trails. Nirvana, and all for $25 a night. Unbelievable, I almost don't...

We had a wonderful time at this park and I can't wait to come back! Our campsite looked out over the marsh and the view was superb. We rode bikes, paddled around in our kayaks and reveled in the natural environment. The park is clean, spacious and scenic. There's a fenced dog run for small and large dogs. Did I... More

Savannas Campgrounds on Midway Road has really cleaned up good. Years ago it was not the nicest place to camp; but they have really cleaned up the place and it is a nice quiet place to pitch a tent or park your RV.

The Savannas are a series of swamps and lakes that lie behind the dunes on the mainland side of the Indian River. Camping is available at the location off Midway Road and trophy bass lurk in the dark waters of the lakes and canals.

We were here during a tornado in Mississippi . The effects that the land and sky go through when the weather shows it's face so prominently was a frightfully awesome sight to see and experience . I'm glad to have been wrapped up in Nature at that moment and that was the place to be . Will visit it again... More

Always enjoy birding at this location, esp. for the season migrants. The park is great for wildlife photography (but remember, it's Florida, so if you go off on a trail - be prepared).
