But I'll do my best.. This was my wife's first time ever camping in her entire life and she was very hesitant to camping period let alone in a tent ⛺, also this was our sons first time camping at 20 months old and the atmosphere at the park was perfect, safe, beautiful, and relaxing, all the accommodations as far as showers laundry mat and utilities where all very clean and easily accessed. We will definetly be back!!
We are always comfortable stopping here, usually after what turns out to be a long first day on the road from Carolina to Florida. The super-friendly hosts lead you into your site, offer ideas for local take-out, then give you breakfast some days before you hit the road again.
Fort McAllister has a little bit of everything. You get the history, 4 miles of hiking trails, the river, and camping! The campground is quiet and the campsites are nicely spaced. Water and electric is available as well as restrooms and showers. You can purchase firewood on site for your campfires. There’s pull through sites for trailers/RV’s as well as tent only sites. You can rent kayaks at the boat dock if you’d like. I had plenty of cell reception (Verizon) and the staff in the office were very nice. Site 16 was huge with water and electric. Plenty of trees for hammocks which I love :) The trail to the lookout tower was closed when i visited in Dec 2020 but it was still a nice experience and that just means I have to come back and visit again!
We had a nice two day stay at Jacksonville North KOA. The pull through sites were close together, as is typical of these commercial campgrounds. Smelled like sewer throughout the campground. The playground would have been nicer if it was maintained appropriately. Not much to do in the area. We visited mill ruins which was cool. Were going to go to Cumberland Island, but it would have been $200 for 1 adult and 3 kids with bikes. Yikes.
Campsite 14 faces road so less privacy but campground was nice and clean. Showers were clean and warm and family oriented. Boat dock area has couple bench swings that were wonderful relaxing. Deer came close at night.
Didn’t take the history tour, but loved the southern charm and wildlife throughout the campground. We rode our bikes all over but the most enjoyable ride was the mile of causeway through the salt marshes. Campsite was level and the grounds were full but quiet. The only wifi was at the office/museum, so we would ride there on bikes and sit on the porch watching the visitors and taking care of business. We were visited by a snake and cute little gecko. Wishing we could have stayed much longer.
We really loved this park. Do not leave any food or your cooler out. We had visits from deer everyday. The campground is at the back of this park and Sonia the boat launch. We put our kayaks in and went paddling up the salt marshes. Very peaceful day. Be sure to visit the fort. It is very cool to walk around and see the underground bunkers. So much history here I never knew about.
