Thanks in advance,
We have only been to Paula Deen's off-season, February both times, and had no problem getting in.

They don't take reservations but for same-day, and you have to be there at 10:30am, I think, to get a time for that day. You may encounter a line in warm weather. Might want to call them to be sure.

There may be no-see-ums in late spring, early summer, and these little guys are viciously bad. Be prepared.


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

I know Paula Dean's is good but you will not want to miss Mrs. Wilke's Boarding house. Here's the link. Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room
It's not famous like Paula Dean but well worth the wait in line. Be sure to arrive early.

Moosetag, have you eaten there yet???? Don't miss it and let me know what you think!

We just got back from our Charleston/Savannah winter trip, our first trip camping in Savannah. We stayed at Hunter AAF and for those who are eligible I wouldn't recommend it except for an overnight on the way somewhere else. The sites have been reconditioned but they are unpaved, some with better gravel than others. The road is unpaved and the whole area quickly became a mud pit after a rain shower.

On the other hand we visited Skidaway to plan for our next trip. That's where we're going next time. Info is available at:

Georgia State Parks - Skidaway Island State Park

On our next trip we will avoid the mud pit.

Thanks Doug&Maggie, and everyone else, all the input helps planning a vacation with the family much easier.

A little late perhaps but as a resident of Richmond Hill (just south of Savannah) I would like to plug the GA State Park Ft. McAllister. Very scenic view of the marshes, good civil war museum and nice facilities though unpaved. You just have to be selective when you visit or the No-see-ums or deer flies can make it miserable. Anytime during the winter months is perfect.

We camped at Rivers end Tybe Island. Sites are close together, but we found campers friendly and honor privacy. We were there for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful meal and time at Uncle Bubba's restaurant. He is Paula Deen's brother, and his place is spacious and offers local seafood and steaks, and a low country boil that hit's the spot....
