One park, two different camping experiences

General: We are planners but trying to reserve a site in the popular Florida state parks is challenging to say the least so we were pleasantly surprised when we could snag two nights here. There are 68 sites in two loops – 34 sites on the Atlantic coast and the remainder across the highway near the Intracoastal waterway. I believe all have electric and water hookups, a picnic table, and a fire ring. 

Site Quality: All sites are level; driveways on the Atlantic side are sand while the ones on the riverside are gravel. The sites on the ocean side are shorter; while larger RVs would likely fit better in the riverside sites, we did see some larger rigs squeeze into the smaller sites. Our site, while on the coast side, backed up to A1A, a busy road, so the soothing sounds of the ocean waves competed with road noise. Minimal separation/privacy between sites but since ours was at the end of the loop, we had privacy on one side (with the exception that the vehicle turnaround was just beyond our site).

Bathhouse: Was reasonably clean considering it is right next to the ocean. In addition to the men’s and women's bathrooms, there is also a family restroom which also has a shower. 

Activities/Amenities: Sadly, due to storm damage, access to the beach from the campground was closed but we were told of available access points in the town of Flagler Beach. There is a nature trail on the river side. There are also kayak rentals available at the Ranger Station (open 8 am– sunset) and there is an ADA-accessible kayak launch. There is a boat ramp on the Intracoastal waterway and fishing is permitted on both sides of the park. Laundry facilities are available in both campgrounds. 

Lucky to have snagged a spot, we chose to relax and not spend time in town until on our way out of town (while you could walk, it is a couple of miles away). It was also interesting to learn how the park got its name. The name was changed in the early 1990s to memorialize Gamble Rogers, a beloved folk singer, who drowned nearby while trying to rescue a swimmer in distress. 

Note: As this is an extremely popular state park, it seems odd that I could not find this on The Dyrt but I searched both by name and location and could not find it.

Small sites with great proximity to the beach

We were only able to reserve one night but we were on the beach side, and the beach is gorgeous. We fell asleep listening to the waves crash! The sites are small and really close together, if you are looking for privacy, this is not it. That said you are only a small walk away from the beach.

Walk to a dog beach!!

We were only able to get one night in the Beachside loop at Gamble Rogers, site 20. The views from some of these sites are amazing! Our site was not on the water side, but we could see the ocean through the sites across from us. Note that the odd numbered sites are the ones on the water side, and at least 19, 21 and 23 have great views (they were across from us). The higher number sites on that side have too much vegetation behind the site to have a view - but you’d still get the sound from the waves. (We didn’t look at sites before 19, so not sure on vegetation there. ). The sites don’t have much separation and the sites aren’t very big. The biggest selling point for me on this campground was that they actually have a dog gate - a gate at the southern end of the campground - accessed by a code they give you - that you can WALK to a dog friendly section of Flagler Beach (the beach right in front of the campground does not allow dogs). This may seem minor to some of you, but if you’re familiar with FL beaches, you’ll know that the majority of the beaches don’t allow dogs. And definitely all the beaches in the state parks don’t allow dogs. So normally, if you’re camping in a state park, you’ll need to drive many miles to get to a beach you can enjoy with your dog. We weren’t impressed with the Riverside campsites at this park. We would definitely return to the Beachside loop of this campground to enjoy the beach with our pup. Hopefully next time we can score a site on the water side!

You can get a spot close to the beach or on the inlet side. Was a good weekend walking the beach. Rv hookups make it easier for some of the other types of campers lol

Awesome State Park

This place is great and hard to schedule. We have tried a few times and finally got in. Travelled from Arizona and wanted a place on the beach. This was it and they had an opening. Limited camp sites on beach side and the staff is extremely nice and helpful. We stayed for 2 nights let me just say the wind is chilly in the winter, but we got to see some whales and dolphins. They have fire rings and wood to buy pretty cheap. If you can get in take it. If you’re near Flagler check it out.

Like hitting the lotto

We booked this on our way down to Florida, and it was someone’s last minute cancellation. Site #21 had hands down the best view. For $38 a night, it was a steal. But then again you’d be lucky to get any site. Wood buckets were $5 and we recommend the Oceanside grill about 3 miles down the road.

Great beach access!

This is an excellent campground for access to the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the sites have scrub bushes behind them hindering the view. But you can still see the ocean from a distance. The sites are roomy but not private. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Dogs are not allowed on the beach in the campground section but their is a gate at the South end that you can walk them to the beach there. Nice electric and water hook ups but no sewer connection must use the the dump station.

Beautiful

The view was amazing the tent site was amazing#25 is next to the dog walk, the restroom and the beach overlook. Prepare for windy conditions coming off the ocean and if it is stormy add some extra protection from the rain if you are tent camping. Amazing place to camp quiet and right on the Atlantic

Good camping right next to the beach

This is a really popular spot and for good reason. You camp right next to the beach, just on the other side of the dune. Nice bathrooms and each site has electric hookups. Some sites have a better view of the ocean than others, but they are all right on the beach. The only problems with this place are that reservations fill up really fast and the campground is filled with mostly rv's so you will hear noise from generators. The sound of the ocean drowns out most of it though!
