Sites were very generous but also felt like an open floor plan, each sharing a boundary with another. I wouldn’t want to have the same site during the busy season. There are just a few sites that are surrounded by woods on three sides. Our site backed up to the bird sanctuary which was nice for some privacy. Bathrooms were clean and as it is primarily an rv park there was never a wait. Laundry facilities were great to have. They boast a walking trail to the beach, expect it to take 25 minutes. Camp store was helpful for basic supplies, water and ice, but did not carry food. We extended our stay primarily because of all the island has to offer. Both driftwood beach and the fishing pier are very close. The dunes beach was a short drive and was full of sand dollars.
Our camping experience was comfortable. Neighboring campers were friendly, the kids had a great time, it was walking distance to the beach, and the staff was helpful with all of our needs, even when the breaker blew on the electric pole. The only thing that i would even complain about would be the size of the sites. But we managed.
You really camp “on top of each other” here. They squeeze in as many units as possible so it really doesn’t feel like camping. We found it noisy, dusty and rather unpleasant. We arrived about 15 minutes prior to check-in, but even though the site was empty and ready, we were kept out on the street until the exact minute of check-in, along with quite a few others. This is a rather ridiculous practice that makes check-in a long process. The park rents bikes for touring the island, which is a must, but it’s best to bring your own bikes. We rented 2 and they were wrecks; rusty, squeaky, brakes only worked part of the time. I had to return mine twice; the first couldn’t adjust the seat height as it was rusted solid, the second had the handlebars off-set, making steering very difficult, and again it was rusted and couldn’t be moved. Biking the island is a great experience. The historic areas are great, the beach trails are beautiful. Plan on a full day to see it all.
Nice access to Beach, quite campground.
Love this place
I love Jekyll Island! It has a great campground and it's within walking/biking distance to the beach. I go over there as often as I can. It's family friendly and pet friendly. It's always clean and the sites are a pretty good size too. The bathouses are clean.
We had a nice stay in our tent. This campground is perfect for riding bikes and getting to the ocean quickly.
Love this spot. It has a special place in my heart!
All this place needs is a pool. but there is a water park on the island. great bike trails. Take the carriage ride through the historic district.
