Spent 2 nights here to a full campground. Facilities all in working area. Large graveled lots with picnic table, fire ring and bbq grill. Sewer, water, 50/30 amp power. Paved roads with some paved walking trails. Plenty of gravel trails. Ample restrooms and showers. Like 1 bathroom/showerhouse for every 20 campsites with vending, washer,dryers and book game share spot. The buildings are kept clean. Also a nice dump area. Dog cleanup stations are along trails.. Bonus they have a clothes line at each site to toss your towels etc over to dry. T-mobile 3 bars LTE or -104db inside rv. Staff very friendly and helpful at check in. A place to come back to. They also have planned activities throughout the week. During work week you hear road noise from USHwy1. If not for the morning and evening traffic on 1 this would be a 5.
My movie of camping area on youtube.
Great site for a day trip or a weekend. Lots of trails for hiking and mountain biking. Conveniently located but feels like miles away from civilization. Stretches from the ocean to outer areas. Shady Pines Camp area is best for tenters, with several tent only sites. The sites aren’t large but fairly private due to foliage. It’s only a short walk to the beach from there. The Lake to Ocean trail runs through here if you’re looking for a multi day hike with primitive camping, just avoid the wet season because water gets quite deep.
Have stayed here twice, about 70 miles from my home. Always tented in riverland as sites close to ranger entrance are rv only. One warning if you reserve through toll free service there is a $6 charge and they put me in a terrible spot. Ranger claimed only a few others available, but it was July and almost empty. Finally got a good tent site, grass and adequate privacy. Restrooms super clean, quiet all day and night. Forgot my fan and almost eaten alive saved by Off. People in boat shop - store super friendly. Ice, wood, etc available. Took a 3 hour canoe trip , $25 well spent. Next day rented a bike. Good hiking trails too.
Awesome campground. Very spacious sites. Your doors and slides don’t open on to somebody else’s site. Very clean and well kept.
Awesome park with so much to do. There’s bike trails and hiking trails. You can spend an entire day on the river kayaking, paddle boarding and boating. They have boats and kayaks for rent. There’s 2 camp grounds and we stayed at the river loop. There’s water, 30amp and 2 120 plugs on the pedestal. Only dump station. Bathrooms are very clean. Ocean is a short 6 mile drive.
There is water access for boating and paddling, mountain bike trails, a nature center, and miles of hiking trail to explore. They are also pet friendly.
We love staying at this park. The Pine Grove sites are full hookups but have no shade. The River sites are close to the river and boat ramp but there is no longer a dump station so you would have to trek about 4miles to the Pine Grove dump station.
We stayed in the Pine Grove campground with a tent… this campground was chock full of RVs and trailers. You can only camp on the gravel, not the grass. Not great for the bottoms of tents! Every site is close to the numerous restrooms dotted through out Pine Grove. The restrooms were okay, the showers didn’t always work and they were looking little tired. This campground was super quiet when we went. We saw maybe 2-3 other people in the restrooms and 1-2 people walking around, everyone seemed to be hiding in their RVs. It would be good for RVs, With full sewer, electricity, and water hookups at every site. We liked it because it was easy to get to and close to the 95 (but not too close to hear it).
We absolutely love Jonathan Dickinson State Park. We camped for 10 nights and enjoyed every moment of it! The bathrooms are the cleanest we have ever seen at a campground including expensive campgrounds throughout Florida, California and Colorado. So much to do there too. Family or retirement oriented.
very clean and tidy campground. friendly people. restrooms were very clean.
