Our second stop on this RV route from Tampa to Plattsburg, NY and points Northeast is Jolly Acres Campground in St. George, South Carolina. It’s an easy 187 mile run straight up I-95 from last night’s stopover in Woodbine, Georgia.
If you’ve been with us on previous trips you’ll know that this is always a favorite stop for us. It is 5 miles off I-95 in a very quiet and peaceful country setting. Jolly Acres is a half-price Park for Passport America members. It’s gravel surfaced with each site a pull-thru with a cement pad, picnic table, and many have full hook-ups. Personable owner Beckie Horne keeps a very nice and clean RV Park/Campground. There is a laundry facility, propane available and a fenced in fishing pond with ducks.
Another big reason we like to stop in St. George is Shugs Southern Soul Cafe Restaurant at 5792 Co Rd S-18-200 (on Main St), St George, SC Phone (843) 563-2300. We have said it before and will mention it again – this is the place for really good Southern Home cooking.
At Shugg’s this evening, Niki chose the Shrimp & Grits Dinner with cornbread and collard greens. I had the Shrimp & Oyster Platter with Collard Greens and Mashed Potatoes. We shared a Hot Fudge Brownie for dessert. It was all prepared perfectly and so delicious.
The restaurant is owned by the Coleman’s. Noah is the Chef and his wife Blanche oversees the dining room. She took some time to chat with us and we enjoyed seeing the improvements since our last visit – a new bar area and a bandstand where weekends can get pretty lively.

We are staying just the one night but did unhitch so we could drive into Town for dinner.
Tomorrow we will have a longer trip going North on I-26 and I-77 up into North Carolina where we hope to meet with some of Niki’s kinfolk.
More from the road tomorrow….
