Camel Lake

Nice quant campground with good sized spots. A No-Frills trail that goes around the lake. Awesome Campground host.

Gorgeous and secluded

If you forget to reserve, there’s a sign reminding you to call. 2 sites on the cash creek boat launch, both clean and scenic. The boat ramp gets some use (4 kayaks total for the day) but otherwise it’s very quiet. Bathroom available because of the boat ramp. It says tent only but the sites are big enough to back in a 20 foot trailer.

Beautiful and Unique State Park

We stayed in site 12 in early January. This site had great separation from the neighboring sites and felt private. We took the trail to the “bay” (as the ranger called it) and it was an easy walk with beautiful views of the water at the end. Unfortunately it rained the rest of our stay so we didn’t get to enjoy the other beaches or stargazing. Important to note though, even at the beginning of January, we had hundreds of mosquitoes in our RV by the morning (even with limited door opening). The 3-4 mile drive from the entrance to the campground is beautiful! Looking forward to returning to this park in the future.

Beautiful secluded rustic spot

We stayed at Tate’s Hell for a night after spending time at the Saint George Island beach.

We got lost driving in! When going to the dwarf cypress boardwalk, google maps routed us through a swamp! It was helpful to grab a map. Roads can be bumpy so take it slow!

We stayed at pidcock 49 and it was lovely. Beautiful sunset. Grill, table and just the sights!

It was hunting season so we did see/hear hunters! It came out to be a total of ~$15 including transaction fee.

Great bathrooms. Just a walk to the beach!

We loved this campsite! Only complaint: sites could have more privacy, but I always say that ;) Some sites were more private than others or went back further. The most private site seemed at the very tip opposite of the entrance/exit. Mostly RVs and adventure vans when we were there, saw a handful of camps and hammocks.

  • really clean, updated bathrooms. Score for the shower stalls with a bench and hooks!
  • nice layout! There’s two bathhouses for 50 slots so every spot is close to a bathroom.
  • five minute walk to the beach :)
  • good stargazing
  • buffered well from the wind

Stop at Lynn’s quality oysters for some local (albeit now farmed) oysters and smoked mahi mahi dip! Also, the island has two seafood trucks where you can buy local fish, shrimp and other non local seafood!

Womack Creek - one of many within Tate’s Hell Forest

$33 for one night, $22 plus reservation fees & taxes. Hard to find on gps, use directions from your reservation confirmation email. Moving on. Lovely site, this has electricity but fairly rustic apart from that. Would return.

Great campsite close to the beach

We family camped here for three nights. The campground is clean, quiet, and has friendly hosts and rangers. Bathrooms were clean and well lit. It's about a ten minute walk to the beach access and there is also parking for cars. From the entrance of the park to the campground is roughly three miles of unspoiled dunes and trees. The views are beautiful with little light pollution at night. The sand is sugar white and clean, minus some seaweed. We saw a few dolphins from a distance and collected some neat shells. It was foggy while we were there, but normally the views on the beach are long range.

The Great Challenege

There’s a hiking loop called the Great Challenge. It’s so difficult, meandering up and down in elevation for 9 miles, that you may give up. Camping is grand— so much wildlife. If you’re lucky you may be able to see a panther or an indigo snake. The campgrounds used to be lush but Hurricane Irma really did a number of the vegetation. However, it doesn’t take away from the enjoying the doors. The river is nearby and across the river allows hunting so you may hear hunters. If you come in from the river and try to camp, make sure it hasn’t rained a lot which could make hiking up to a campsite challenging. They have both dispersed campsites and drive-up.

Breathtaking White sandy Beach

We found a spot last minute after covid-19 hit on April and I am so glad we did. I read about the beautiful white sand beach at St George Island and pictures can’t capture the reality. The campground is very well maintained, restroom including showers are impeccable as well as all surrounding areas. The amazing stars in the skies during the nights are just breathtaking and wild life such a owls howling was unique. The protected dunes are really unique and the sites are good size and easy to back in. They sell ice bags as well as lighter wood if you forgot yours and the path to the beaches are very nice. Great area to go fishing cycling and swimming in the great warm ocean waters at least on September. Never have experimented this temperature on waters, not even in the Caribbean beaches which I come from. The ranger are very informative and friendly.

First to Review
Very peaceful ranch.

Marcie is the owner of this rescue ranch. She’s just starting out having RV’s come in (we were her 4th). There’s power and water hookups, but no dumping stations yet. She runs a quaint rescue ranch for various animals. At the time we were there (8/14/20) she had 21 horses, a Bantam rooster, two pot bellied pigs (one that looks pregnant), a pregnant goat, a bull and a dairy cow (also pregnant ) and three dogs; one if which was an adorable Great Pyrenees puppy that she saved from deaths door). She also offers guided trail rides in the adjacent state park (we only spent the night, so we did not do that). You really can’t beat it fir $25.00 a night!Note: the road into her ranch is pretty rough and beat up, so use caution and go slowly. Make sure you bring plenty of carrots and apples for the animals! Feeding them was a big highlight of our stay!
