Hilton Head National RV Resort wants owners of travel trailers and 5th-wheels to know that they have a place at Hilton Head.
In recent years, travelers heading to Hilton Head with pull-behind recreational vehicles faced a problem. There were no resorts on the island offering accommodations for towable rigs. So, visitors had to turn to options dozens of miles away. That changed in 2022 when Hilton Head National RV Resort opened. The luxury resort is now the sole facility in the Hilton Head Area that accepts pull-behind RVs in addition to Class A, B, and C motorcoaches.
Besides Hilton Head National, there are only two other RV resorts on the island. One, Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, is motorcoach-only and open only to Class-A and Class-C vehicles. The other, Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort, allowed towables at one time. Now, however, it has a complex set of restrictions that prohibit rentals to travel trailers and 5th wheels with slides larger than 35 feet long and 8 feet wide. Among those restricted are popular Airstreams built after 1995.
Bill Layman, Vice President of Operations at Hilton Head National pointed out how often travelers with pull-behinds feel stuck. “We don’t go to Hilton Head anymore because they don’t allow towables.” was the common theme. Fortunately, he and the team at the resort want towable owners to know that there is not only an option but a fantastic one. “We have a beautiful park,” Mr. Layman affirmed, adding, “we wanted to make sure we accommodated all kinds of RVs.”
Hilton Head National resort was built as a luxury property; yet, the developers recognized that was not necessarily synonymous with being a Class-A-only resort. For various reasons, many travelers prefer smaller RVs. With that in mind, leaders at Hilton Head National RV Resort decided to accept RVs as small as 18 feet. That not only offers opportunities for smaller towables but also for smaller Class B and C motor coaches. At the same time, spaces were designed for the largest Class As and pull-behinds. The sites measure 86 feet by 20 feet perfect for rigs with slides. There are back-in spaces, pull-throughs, and buddy sites. All are concrete patio sites, with individual firepits and full hookups including Wi-Fi and premium cable TV. Lakeview and golf view sites are available.
Being the area’s only resort accepting pull-behind RVs is just the icing on a very delicious cake. Hilton Head National RV Resort has an exceptional array of top-notch amenities creating a resort-style experience. The 97 acres feature an 8,500-square-foot beach-entry pool with a lazy river. Onsite there is a playground, basketball, bocce ball, and pickle ball courts. There is even a two-acre dog park with dog washing stations! Plus, the founders took care to incorporate the natural environment, adding elements like lakes, park areas, and miles of walking trails around the property.
Inside the charming clubhouse is a sitting area with a fireplace, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and an arcade. The clubhouse often serves as center stage for a full calendar of events, filled with everything from fitness classes and excursions to holiday-themed programming.
Guests wanting a cocktail or restaurant meal can stay right on the property. Billy Mac’s Grille in the clubhouse features southern cuisine and signature cocktails prepared by award-winning chefs. Across the deck is a tiki bar.
Travelers without children have an adults-only section option known as Water’s Edge. It features panoramic views of the golf course and has its own pool, bar, cabanas, and hot tub.
For golfers, having access to the acclaimed Hilton Head National Golf Club is one of the best reasons to stay at the resort. The course, designed by Hall of Fame golfer Gary Player and architect Bobby Weed, is acclaimed as one of the best courses in the southeast U.S. and considered a joy to play.
When it’s time to head to Hilton Head Island to enjoy the beach, shop, or dine, it’s a quick jaunt. Hilton Head National RV Resort is less than two miles from the Hilton Head Island Bridge and just 5-minutes from the island.
For day-tripping, historic Old Town Bluffton, with its old-South vibe is less than 10 minutes away. The area’s favorite destinations – the historic waterfront cities of Beaufort, South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah Georgia are all within easy reach.
There are a few limitations worth mentioning. Although it welcomes pull-behind RVs along with Class B and Class-C rigs, it does not accept pop-ups, truck campers, or teardrops.
