This is one of the only only parks open year round in the area. It is 45 min from Wolf Creek Ski Area. They list that there are bathrooms and showers but once you arrive you find out they are “closed for COVID” so we had to drive to the gas station 10 minutes away every time we had to use the restroom as it’s too cold to run water in the camper. This park appears to be many folks’ permanent residence. Not worth $45/night but if it’s the only option close to Wolf Creek, so be it. 🤷🏼♀️
Had a great time at this beautiful and secluded state park. Took a few hikes around the river as well as some late night walks along the boardwalk hoping to see a gator (no such luck). Saw some cool wildlife none the less though. Failure nice and well managed. Campsites are large and easy to back into. And sure, there are some snakes, but it's the swamp!!
Though the spots are pretty tightly packed together, the close proximity to the beach along with the nice private bathrooms made this a wonderful destination. Just a note for dog owners- DO NOT walk your dog on the beach. You think there's no one around and then the cops just pop out of the sand dunes and chase you down. $300 ticket. We probably won't return because police presence on the island is militant and ridiculous, but all in all the RV park was nice.
I cannot speak to the actual park because we chose to stay on the beach.
Other than proximity to the lavatories, I cannot see why people would choose to stay in the reserved spots when you can wake up with a clear, secluded view of the ocean. We were one of two campers on the beach- and it’s HUGE. Lots of privacy, beautiful sunset. Do yourself a favor and wake up for the sunrise as well. Can’t beat it.
If you’re looking for amenities, probably not the spot for you. If you’re looking for a secluded experience with nature, stop on by.
There were some positives and some negatives for this campground. The area is beautiful and the deck overlooking the ocean is perfect for sunsets. The trees interwoven between campsites were picturesque, and the beach is small but very dog friendly- your dog can run off-leash and swim if you so desire. The common area, which has been mentioned and pictured in other reviews, was very nice to have for extra things to do and to meet other campers. Laundry is $4.50/load. Our spot(#1) was in the overflow parking lot next to the restrooms. We had barely any space for ourselves and we were told someone would be put in the spot beside us ONE night(we were amazed a spot even existed beside our tiny space) and that ended up being 5 nights of our week stay. There are some spots that are decent in the campgrounds, but they should not have added these two spots in the overflow parking- just not worth the price. The pier advertised is destroyed from the hurricane last year and repairs have not begun on it nor the sea wall, which does take away from the beach experience. If we hadn’t been stuck with spot#1, this would be a 4 star review. Also, not their fault but just a note- be aware that FL98 is an incredibly dangerous highway and driving in/out of the campgrounds with or without a trailer is horrendous. We saw several bad accidents every single day.
We enjoyed taking out 30ft trailer to this campground. Facilities were clean and simple but did the job. The camping spots are spaced nicely so you can say hello to the neighbors but also have your own space. Very dog friendly. The hiking trails nearby are lovely(wear your boots if it’s been raining!). We also visited Wormsloe historic site nearby which was interesting and worth the $10 per adult ticket cost.
