Welcome to the Hostess City
Red Gate RV Resort is located on 200+ acres of charming countryside in southeast Georgia. Here you will be surrounded by spectacular scenery including centuries-old live oak trees, glistening lakes, perfectly manicured and lush paddocks, farm animals, and other stunning aspects that make up Savannah’s countryside.
Although you will feel like you are hours away from the bustling city, you are mere minutes from historic downtown Savannah, GA. There you will find restaurants, shopping boutiques, museums, art galleries, and a bustling nightlife. We are also located just 20 miles from Tybee Island Beach. Spend a relaxing day soaking up the sun with your toes in the water, butt in the sand, and a cool drink in hand.
The land that is now Red Gate Farms has a long, rich history in Savannah. If the centuries-old oak trees could speak, they would tell you about the Indians, 18th-century colonists, civil war soldiers, and more that crossed the land before Red Gate Farms’ conception as a dairy farm, and later as Savannah’s Premier Event Venue, RV Resort, and Equestrian Center.
In 1931, Harry Martin, a direct descendant of a Scottish Highlander that later became the governor of the Georgia colony, and his wife, Mamie, bought 440 acres of land and converted it into a jersey cow farm. They named their farmlands “Red Gate Farms” in honor of a relative, Cyrus Steadwell, who was killed in France during World War I. Cyrus had always mentioned that he wanted to own a farm one day and name it “Red Gate”. Harry Martin was considered a folk hero for leading many fights to lower milk prices. His constant campaigning eventually led to fair milk prices for everyone.
Although the 140 jersey cows, chickens, and other farm animals no longer wander the land, the Martin’s instilled a strong work ethic in their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and more than 90 years later, they still run Red Gate Farms.
