Lebanon/Cincinnati NE KOA Holiday

We stayed at the Lebanon KOA between May 30th through June 3rd for the first time since it became a KOA before moving off to Columbus, Ohio for Deb's contract during the summer of 2022.  It was called Cedarbrook Campground the last time we stayed there years ago.  We actually had a monthly site there one summer when it was called Cedarbrook and we had our Cougar Fifth Wheel we pulled with our F350 Dually Super Duty Truck.

While the layout of the campground remained the same, some of the sites were replaced with cabins and a couple of more shower houses/restrooms were added.

Several sites have been upgraded to concrete slabs/patios along with amenities for them to be part of what makes the campground a KOA Holiday.

There are still some employees working there who were there when it was Cedarbrook.  All of the employees were very friendly, courteous, and helpful. We would definitely return to this campground to stay for future visits.

On our way back from Florida we stopped at the Point South Yemassee KOA.  I was really impressed with this campground.  It had nice showers and a little bar that served a wide assortment of Wine along with a local IPA beer that I thought tasted pretty good.  I am not one who likes IPA beer, so it had to taste good for me to drink it.  They also made pizzas to order and wings, so we had to buy some to see what they were like, and I really enjoyed them.

The dog walk was really nice, with red mulch the same as the St. Petersburg Madeira Beach had in their dog walk.

I would recommend this KOA to anyone who likes pizza, wine, and IPA beer.

On our way down to St. Petersburg for our nephews wedding we stopped at the Savannah South KOA in Richmond Hill, Georgia.  Sites were small, but not as small and crowded as the St. Petersburg Madeira Beach KOA sites. It was an overnight stay, so we really didn't do full hookups, just used the electric. What worried me was the sign next to the pond that indicated there were gators in the area, so needless to say I avoided the pond area. We didn't have much time to check the area out.  I was a bit frustrated with the GPS trying to take us up and down a back road when I happened to see the KOA sign as we passed by it.  I managed to turn the rig around without much problem and made it back to the KOA without incident. Had I been in a big rig semi-tractor trailer I might have had some issues on getting turned around, but luckily, I was driving the much smaller 37-foot Motorhome.

Below are the only pics I took while at the Savannah South KOA. They were of the dogs inside the Motorhome.  After all, that's what the whole idea of taking the Motorhome was to keep the dogs close to where we were. They were happy I stopped so they could relax a bit and so was I. You can always go to the link for the Savannah South KOA to see pictures of this particular KOA if you are interested.


Spent the very first weekend of April in the area of St. Petersburg, Florida to attend a very tightly scheduled wedding for Deb's nephew and his FiancĂ©. During this time frame Deb's Family stayed at a local hotel, but I drove the Motorhome from Wilmington, NC to St. Petersburg with our three dogs in tow so we would have a place for them to stay.  We did lodge them for the weekend at a local pet shelter where they were taken care of very well. We got there a day before the rest of the Family did and we left after the rest of the Family flew back home to Ohio and Georgia.  On the way down we stayed at another KOA and on the way back we also stayed at even a different KOA.  There will be separate postings for each of them.
