Discover and reserve the best campgrounds, cabins, RV parks, and more.
This island off South Carolina is famous for its unspoiled beaches and easy resort living. Under an hour from Savannah, Hilton Head Island is also a golfing destination. The island has over 30 courses, including Harbour Town, home of PGA's RBC Heritage tour. Hilton Head has more hotels than campgrounds, but several RV resorts let campers unwind in style. These upscale campgrounds are big on amenities, from swimming pools to saunas and tennis courts. Extras like Wi-Fi, cable TV, and full hook-ups are usually included. Tent campers have to trudge back to the mainland to sleep under the stars. The nearby town of Bluffton has private campgrounds with tent camping areas. Big rigs can find roomy sites at RV parks in Hardeeville. Of course, you can still day trip to Hilton Head. Coligny is the most popular beach, with swimming, bike rentals, and restaurants within walking distance. For fewer crowds, look to beaches on the north shore. Islanders Beach is especially low-key on account of the resident-only parking. But you can totally bike or walk over. Or you can look for alligators at the island's nature preserves, including the Audubon Newhall Preserve. If you're determined to pitch a tent on an island, Skidaway Island is only an hour away in Georgia. The state park has tent camping amid live oaks, along with cabins and some full hook-up sites. Hunting Island in South Carolina is another good alternative to Hilton Head for camping.
