Campsite 61, Hilton Head Marina and RV Park

We arrive here early to pick a site, they can’t be reserved. We get to cruise the campground in a golf cart – we’re not golfers, so this is a a fun first.  Although not exactly like the first time at a go-cart, it’s a cool way to pick out a site.  We settle on site #61, on the water, overlooking the marina.

I would probably call this a destination campground.  Two swimming pools, a gourmet restaurant and large, beautifully landscaped sites.  We decide to hang out for a few days – swim, relax, and enjoy our first taste of warm weather while Dick can get some needed work done.

Our first dinner at the on-site restaurant (we have to allow a two or three minute walk in order to be on time for our reservation) is fabulous. We have a delicious appetizer of barbecued grilled shrimp on fried green tomatoes, after which Dick devours a whole neatly-scored flounder, a beautiful plate of shrimp and grits for me, to name the highlights.  We have a sunset table in the corner, a perfect first night.


We spend five nights here.  Dick gets a lot of black fly bites, and needs to stay indoors.  I wind up getting sunburned after days of being at the pool with the same amount of block and not a tinge of pink – but we eat well and are warm. We have a couple great meals at nearby Hudson’s restaurant during our stay.  Their shrimp boats are docked on the pier by the outside deck eating area – we eat out there once, and twice in the dining room, and go big on shrimp, sautéed and fried.  The she-crab soup is also great.

We do leave our enclave to visit a couple of beaches, but we’re not really big sand beach walkers/sitters, being partial to Maine, and parts of Hilton Head are inaccessible to RV’s, even our small 24 foot Navion.  Just as well, we enjoyed our relaxing stay.
