This is a lovely state park with lots to do, wish we could have stayed long to enjoy everything - hiking, boating fishing, etc. Our RV spot #58 (full hook up) was very spacious with plenty of room and foliage between sites so didn’t feel crammed in. We were here in February so didn’t experience any bugs and it was very quiet and just RV people for the most part. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The bath house near us was clean and modern and had four separate accessible private bathrooms with toilet, sink, and shower so it would be easy for families to take all the kids in at once. There was also a nice laundry area in this building. We would definitely go back if in the area again.
We stayed here this weekend and had a blast. The campsites are located walking distance to the water. It wasn’t at all crowded and the campsite had a decent amount of privacy. Dogs are allowed at the campsite but not on the beaches or coastlines. Fernandina Beach is a cool town with tons to do! We stayed at an RV site with power and water. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We are already planning our next trip here (without our dogs).
One of those places that makes you feel blessed to live in the South East. Literally in the middle of no where while still being a reasonable drive from Central Florida. Some campsites were small some did not have great drainage. Those are the cons. We had site 48 and from what I saw it was the best in the park. Get there early rent a boat prices are reasonable we saw easily over 50 gators swimming and sun bathing all around us. The sky here is amazing too. A must visit.
After going camping with the Boy Scouts we decided that we liked camping so we bought a 10-person tent and the first place we went was Little Talbot Island which is close to home. The campsites are small but they are in between the tree so you can't see your neighbors. The bathrooms were close by and clean, the only drawback was that the beach was across the street and quiet a walk. Once you make the hike to the beach it's absolute Heaven. There are not very many people, the beach is beautiful whitish sand. water is clear, it was very enjoyable to spend the day at the beach. Of course at the end of the day it rained.
We stayed in the tent only area and it was nice. I don't remember a lot of road noise but then we traveled 2 weeks around Florida and heard road noise in every park so maybe I was Immune to it. The bath house in at the swimming beach and it is a little walk, so if you have little ones that might be a pain. Also in the summer I can imagine it would be packed with day use visitors. We checked in late so no interactions with any Park staff but the lady that booked the site on the phone was nice. Park is close to Jekyll Island where there are killer bike paths all around the island and that is what we were there for. The camp ground on Jekyll did not look good. I would return and stay here.
We had such a great experience! This campground is tucked away at the end of the island. We took a beautiful walk to the fishing pier and then out to the driftwood beach which was just incredible. A golf cart or bikes are a must if you want to visit the areas many restaurants, parks, natural, and historical sites. They do have adult bikes for rent and a great little store for those easily forgotten items. The site was well maintained when we arrived, everyone (and their pups) were friendly, and the bathrooms were warm and clean.
We stayed over Thanksgiving and had such a fun time. We took our canoe for a paddle on the Okefenokee and counted 25 alligators in less than an hour! We also rented a motorboat to explore the swamp. The deer were not scared of us and wandered around our campsite, as did a hungry raccoon. We also saw bears near the cottages. This is a great kid friendly park. The bathrooms were very clean. November-winter is definitely the time to go. We did not have a bug problem but I can see how it would be an issue in the warmer months. We can’t wait to go back.
