We had a great time with Andrew and Owen at Disney World, but alas, it was time to leave. The drive from Disney to the boys home in South Carolina is only about 460 miles, but we broke it up into two days to make it more fun for them.
Right at the halfway mark in Brunswick, GA is a gem of an RV park, right off I-95 at exit 29 (the same exit as the Flying J, how convenient).
It is the Coastal Georgia RV Resort.
I found this park back when I was doing some instructor duties at the nearby Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) and would stay in my motorhome instead of hotels.
This RV park is on the same level as Disney’s Fort Wilderness, it is immaculate, well laid out and has nice amenities, without the large crowds.
All the sites are concrete pull throughs and they are large.
We fit in with plenty of room left over.
It has a nice pool/shower/laundry room complex. Put your wash in and go for a swim. Makes a dull task easier to do. ;c)
The main building has the office, a well stocked store with common RV accessories, a game room and a conference room/kitchen.
Marti took the time to contribute to our grandson’s education by teaching them to shoot pool. She is quite the pool shark.
Andrew took the time to whip my butt in chess (again!). (The Monopoly Hotel was used as a pawn because one was missing from the chess set, in case you wondered).
The Coastal Georgia RV Resort gives a Good Sam discount. We paid $37 for the night, which for the East coast is pretty reasonable for a campground. They have more attractive weekly and monthly rates, and this area is worthy of a longer stay.
We dropped the boys off at their home and left amid tears from little Owie and headed to Myrtle Beach, SC to the Pirateland Campground. Marti has to attend a four day conference to maintain her nursing home administrator license and this campground was nearby. What a shocking change from the Georgia RV Resort, it is a large, cramped campground with the only saving grace is that it is right on the ocean. It is not the worst place we’ve ever stayed, but we wouldn’t choose to come here except for Marti’s conference.
There are golf carts whipping around the crowded streets, we had to have nearby neighbors move their trucks so we could back into our site. They were gracious to do so. The sites are small and crowded, but I guess this is what is to be expected with an ocean side campground.
Last night, the campground security officers stopped a drunk driver on a golf cart right in front of our site and proceeded to have a loud argument with the drunk before taking him away after finding him with open booze bottles and pot. Glad we’ll be leaving here at the end of the week.
Next week, it will be back to NJ to spend time with Anabelle and driving over to Pottstown, PA to see our newest granddaughter, Rebekah. Our son Ryan and DIL Amber, along with their other two girls, Taylor and Kierra have moved there from Oregon, to Ryan’s new duty station on the Coast Guard Cutter Cleat in Philly.
It will be great to see them all. It sure is nice to be full time and have the ability to go where we want when we want. It is really worth it. :c)
