• A few scenes around Savannah.

    Here’s a few things that caught my eye..


    Morning on West Jones Street


    No front yards in old Savannah, but courtyards.


    Mom in front of a pair of red doors. Red doors are rather popular.


    Some of the architecture is stunningly ornate.


    Savannah has 22 squares in the old town.


    The Forsyth Park fountain was installed in 1858.


    After Sherman's troops tore up the old city cemetary in 1865 the actual location of many graves was lost so the stones were plastered to the wall.








  • Red Gate Farm Campground – Savannah

    You sure can't miss the sign!


    Red Gate Farm RV campground just southwest of Savannah is one of a couple of campgrounds that are fairly close to the old downtown area, and a particular benefit is that the Old Town Trolley Tour bus will pick you up right at the campground. You simply can’t take an RV into downtown Savannah and I think you’d be crazy to fight the traffic with a toad.

    The campground itself was once a 440-acre dairy farm, and is off  US 17.  The RV sites you see in the photo are arrayed around a big field and have full hookups; many other sites have electric and water. There’s a few other sites behind the treeline that are much more private and shadier.

    Unfortunately the area is pretty loud, no fault of the campground. There’s a couple of highways, a railroad and all-day helicopter ops from Hunter Army Airfield. It’s just the nature of the city.

    Other amenities include a big clubhouse and a picnic area pavilion.
