We arrived Friday after the Visitor’s Center was closed. We tried to pay for Friday night on Saturday morning but they only charged us for Saturday night, thus we only paid $8 for both nights. It’s located downtown, only a short walk from River Street. There were First Friday fireworks the first night we stayed and a parade Saturday morning. We walked all over on Friday and Saturday though there wasn’t anywhere we felt safe enough to bike due to traffic. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. Convenient dining. Would definitely stay again. Wish more cities were this friendly to RVers. We spent quite a bit of money in local businesses that we would otherwise not have since we saved so much on lodging. Due to the unbearable heat and humidity, we would gladly have paid extra for electricity to be able to run our air conditioner and the City of Savannah should consider adding metered coin/credit operated power outlets to the RV parking sites. *Another poster said they will no longer allow RV parking after the first of the year, however, they were busy with their jackhammers installing brand new “RV Parking Only” signs on Saturday morning, 10/07/17.
This is the perfect place from which to explore the beautiful and historical downtown Savannah. The trolley tours leave from here, or it's an easy 1.6 mile walk to the waterfront. We did both. To stay overnight, register upstairs at the visitor centre: $8/night. Payment is cash only, and they need your licence plate number. They will issue you a permit good for 24 hours from time of purchase to place in your windshield, that you will provide to the agent at the parking lot booth when you leave. There were a handful of other RV's there, and it was was a quiet and peaceful stay. For more details and photos visit : https://www.facebook.com/SailingBanyan
Planned on staying 2 nights, ended up enjoying the spot so much I stayed for 3. $8 a night is great considering the location and security. There were several other RVs there on various nights, everyone was friendly, and a prime location to walk around downtown, explore the waterfront and dive bars, and walk back to crash, at most it was a 15 minute walk back. To get the pass you need to walk into the Visitors Center, go up the stairs to the left and walk to the end where the service desk is. They'll need your license plate number and only take cash.
