Nice campground on the Atlantic Ocean

We stayed here a week our site #99 is right on the water next to the fire pit. Nice view with full hook up, a picnic table, sites are tight with no privacy. This site faces the Atlantic so we weren’t facing another camper. The pool and clubhouse are nice and the laundry room has 5 washers and dryer’s. There is a boat ramp, fish cleaning station, docks for you boat and they sell gas for your boat. 

The deer walk up to you    that’s nice. The office and store are nice lots of good things in there prices were good. We saw some sunrises and sunsets from our site. The bonfire pit is nice it’s propane so no smell which was nice. They turn it on every evening till 10:00. 

The campground is maintained well, clean bath house, pool, clubhouse and laundry room very clean. There is a dish cleaning station next to an outside shower, for tent campers. 

Over in the primitive camping area there’s a trail you can walk along the water lots of deer hoof prints, and derelict crab bouys. It’s a nice trail to walk there are sand spurs so wear shoes.

The entire week we were there it was windy we had lots of seaweed blow in it does smell. Hardly anyone was there mid oct.  They store campers there too lots of snow birds come for the winter. 

On Big pine key there’s a Winn Dixie, 2 hardware stores, the Big Pine Rooster restaurant, cocos has great Cubans, Trinaos taco truck, and drive out to the north name pub they have good pizza and homemade sangria. Bahia Honda state park is across the bridge it’s a nice place to spend a day. On Marathon Porky’s has a good breakfast and barbecue, the Sunset grill has good she crab soup, and the Keys Fishery good raw bar upstairs and cooked food downstairs. 

I gave this campground a 4 star review due to no swim beach.

Back up to the water and fish from your site

We visited some people staying here in the campground we were at fall lake. The Lodge is across the street with lots of  amenities. The lodge has a shower house, bar/ Lounge, restaurant,  boat and canoe rentals, game room, free Wifi, a playground, bait & tackle, a private swim beach and laundry facility. The laundry facility is near the other campground and suites I like the campground across the street better. Good homemade Pizzas! This area is beautiful. I gave it a 3 star rating because we like privacy, a little more wooded surroundings and you can hear traffic but it's not a very busy road.

Across the street from the lodge is the campground, boat ramp & small toilet rooms a little primitive. Better to be self contained in this part of the campground. Most sites back up to the water and some have docks behind them and there is water & electric.  Some have a little  shade. There isn't much privacy and there isn't a lot of room between them but a great view. You can fish from you campsite they had caught some Walleye. There are several lakes here you choose from if you boat, canoe or kayak. I would say my camper is bigger than it is to make sure you get a little larger spot. The ones across from the toilet rooms can be tight backing in having enough room to get in take that into consideration when booking. 

I believe they use the dump station in Ely at the visitor center they have a dump you can use for #5.00.  Ely is a small town it has a lot of canoe outfitters, 2 grocery stores, a few places to eat, gas stations, hardware stores, some gift shops, so come prepared there isn't a Walmart or anything near there. 

By far the best ice cream we ever ate. It's called Northern Expressions I had the caramel collision, the malts were good too. The line can be all the way down the side of the building but the wait is worth it. 

Lots of lakes in the area, Fall lake is close by which is nice for Kayaking, canoeing or boating. It's part of the BWCA. Nice campground there too.

Nice park falls you can walk in & around. Primitive camping

We spent an afternoon at the falls it was warm out so the falls were busy. People having a great time in the water and walking over the falls. The parking lot to walk to the falls & gift store can be full we had to wait for a spot. It's a very busy park and the campground had a lot of campers mostly tents the day we were there. No hook ups yet some nice sites. The trail to the falls is mostly paved and level. There's a store/gift shop it looked nice but was closed due to Covid-19.

My favorites were #57, 17, 36, 44, 47, 51 (no shade), 52, 62 (private site) and 64. Site 6 is a pull thru. There is drinking water and a dump station.

We stayed at Tettegouche State Park yet all these parks are close & along the shore.

Nice campground

We didn't stay here yet we check out all the state parks in a state were near. There are some nice sites with electric we liked site # 26, and 28 the best then #22 and 38 is big & set up nice yet no water view. There is drinking water but there isn't a dump station. All the sites with electric are in the upper loop along with the showers. This park was very well maintained better than others we were in. 

The primitive sites were booked we were there in June, waterfront sites were booked too. 

Nice park yet we stayed at Tettegouche State park up the road.

Amazing park Big Waterview Site one of my favorites

We stayed 7 nights really wish we had booked a few weeks. Our site was #16. We had electric hook up, fill with water near the dump station. Our site was big and private on Grass lake facing west so we saw great sunsets sitting in our site. Our bump out was facing the water when we backed in so sitting at the dinette in the camper we had a great view of the lake. Our table & fire pit were behind the camper with a great view of the water & sunset. The small birds were amazing, the sound of the Loons and an occasional muskrat will swim by.  Every morning we had a Chipmunk warm itself up on a tree behind the camper when the sun hit that spot. The big Maple trees everywhere is nice very lush campground. When the sun set we kicked up a bonfire and took it all in. 

There are several docks on grass lake and a big dock on Beers lake you can fish from. We launched the Kayak at the boat ramp on Beers lake it's a nice ramp and not busy. We didn't get on Lake Lida it's much bigger and lots of go fast boats we prefer no wake. The bigger fish are on Lida.

There are 8 lakes in the park which 3 or 4 have easy water access to launch a canoe or Kayak. Each lake has different fish in it. Our favorite was Beers lake it had some calm coves in it, we caught some Crappies, pan fish & Bass on this lake. They say it also has Walleye and Northern Pike. Lots of beavers & muskrats swimming interesting to watch. There is a hike or boat in site on Beers lake it's nice. 

Grass lake has Pan fish, crappie, Northern Pike & more it's a smaller lake. Bass lake has trout, imagine that!

There is a 5 mile drive in the parks around some lakes that was nice we saw Swans with babies, Loons, and beavers. We loved this park. There are so many trails and so much to do.

There is a fish cleaning station, restrooms, boat ramps, canoe rentals, a swim beach and picnic area tat Lake Lida just a great place. We will go back & spend a few weeks next time were from Florida so it's a ways to go but will do it again. 

The ranger that would drive through in the evenings was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, the area & 2 other parks he works at.  Someone had 2 campers in one site he told them it wasn't allowed (I think we all know that) he made one book a spot & move. It was the only noise we heard was their dogs in that site when no one was there they barked the entire time. Glad he made the one camper move it got quiet again. We did have some people try to walk through our site we asked them not to. They had to walk between the camper & the truck I would think it was common sense. 

There is an Equestrian campground there and trails around the lakes to ride your horses on, a few water access spots for them to wet their hoofs. 

There is a town close by Pelican Rapids, the drive there is nice and it's a small town but a nice grocery store (Larry's), Liquor store, a drug store a few gift shops & good ice cream. 

I'm so happy we found this campground we will return.

Nice park Great sunsets, boat ramp,swim beach yet primitive Camping only

This park has a lot of sites many are very small so check the size limit. Some nice big sites are 60, 52, 49, 50, 47 and 44. They are private sites with lots of trees yet not waterfront. There are no hook ups and you can not make a reservation. First come first served there are plenty of sites. We did not stay here yet we stayed close by and went into wooden frog almost every days for a few weeks to launch the Kayak and watch great sunsets. 

There is drinking water yet we did not see a dump station. Not sure where the closest dump station is. 

There is an island you can access with a canoe, kayak or a boat that you can fish or just enjoy the view. There's a few little coves on the island to get out & stretch, take a dip and have lunch. We saw a juvenile Eagle in a tree we watched it for a while. We kayaked out to that island a lot & fished along the shoreline from the Kayak. 

The boat ramp is nice has a great spot to launch the kayak. There are White pelicans that hang out between the boat ramp & The Arrowhead Lodge (where we stayed they have 3 RV sites).  The swim beach is nice, has some picnic tables and a restroom. Was quiet during the week busier on weekends.  The Park is laid out nice there is another small dock in the campground area you can launch a canoe or Kayak there too.

The Rocky Ledge Restaurant is close by good food & drinks. Great pizza! You can walk to the Arrowhead Lodge too or drive there and have a drink or food and view the water. Sit outside & watch the boats come in, their catch of the day and the white pelicans flying in & swimming around.

Poo on my shoe

WE stayed here a week it has 3 or 4 sites for Rv's or tents. Check or cash only no credit card. The cabins look nice and the deck on the water is nice, boat dock and swim beach on a calm cove on Lake Kabetogama. We were staying close by so we stopped to see where our site was & we were shown a spot that was big & open. When we pulled in 2 days later the spot had someone new in it & we were put up near the cabins. We had to back up a hill in a tight spot to get into. It was where they keep all the extra parts and supplies to maintain the place along with a bit of old junk. We had to use 2 sewer hoses & just got them to stretch to the limits. We hooked up to a hose that was from the fish cleaning house and we had 2 hoses to reach our camper. The electric box was on a different side than the sewer & the water it also was stretched to reach. We weren't happy & complained. She would have refunded my deposit yet you can't just find campgrounds at the last minute I did look for some. 

There is one waterfront site with a view lucky if you can book that minus the poo. 

The worst part is every cabin had at least one big dog and none were ever on a leash. They pooped in our site along with pooping next to our Kayak that was down near the water. One dog came over & got in our empty garbage (the garbage was tied to a fish cleaning table we have) it got tangled & pulled over my entire table & everything on it. We love dogs but they should be on a leash. After a week of them a new family came in renting all the cabins and the same thing, lots of dogs no leashes.

I'm sure this is a nice place if you stay in a cabin and don't mind dog poo. The owner Elaine has had the place for 48 years and works hard, very nice person but she should enforce the dog leash & pick up poop rule. The families that booked all the cabins have come back for 40 years so they love it.  The 2nd group of families have been coming 30 some years. 

We did catch a few nice fish that we couldn't keep they were in the throw back slot. We got a 36" northern Pike & a 20" Walleye. Voyager National Park is for people who like being on the water, boating, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. It is a pretty area not much to do other than boat. 

This is next to Wooden Frog National Forest so you can launch a boat or kayak there too and watch sunset from there. 

I'm sorry to write this bad review but it wasn't pleasant. We were up the street from here in Voyagers national park so we decided to stay another week since we couldn't find openings when they notified us Chippewa won't open.  I try to research good places to camp this was a last minute booking since Chippewa Stony Point campground closed for Covid then needed updated & closed till sept. I would not stay here again.

Great campground, nice sites, boat ramp, water access and swim beach

We always look for rec.gov sites with the national Park Pass for seniors it's inexpensive & usually they are nice. We stayed in Site #63 with electric hook up. When you enter the park where the office/small store is that's where you fill with water. Our site was big with a picnic table, fire pit & a path to the lake. Our friends camped in site # 62 it was big yet had a weird tree stump in a bad place. They marked it with a night light and a flag. 

The boat ramp was near the loop we were in so very easy access to the water. You can keep you boat or kayak next to the boat ramp. We kayaked out to the Boundry Waters Canoe Area and fished. We stopped & looked at several boat in campsites that are booked through Fall lake CG they are really nice and private. There are lots of lakes to pick & choose from for kayaking and boating. Clean restrooms, nice hot showers. The sites are cleaned and raked the campground is well maintained. They sell Ice & wood and a few small items in the store/office. 

The best sites are #63, 62, (10 is a pull through)   for Campers or tents and nice walk in sites #26 has a private beach, 59, 6029,35 are waterfront walk in sites.

There  is no dump station you drive into Ely it's at the Ely Chamber of Commerce (6 miles away) for a donation. There are free brochures here too and coupon books. Only other downfall was the camphost is across from site 63 and they start early. It's quiet till they come back about 7:30 am (were still sleeping) & back in their golf cart. Beep, Beep you know what I mean. I wanted to say something but they left for a week so it was quiet early mornings. They should make them a little pull through path for the cart. 

This campground was so quiet, great sites, most have a path to the lake and they have great hike in sites too. There's lots of parking at the parking lot for boaters & hikers. The swim beach is at the end of the park and it has a playground in front of it. 

It was so interesting to watch boats portage going from one lake to another. People canoe & boat to the Canadian border from there. We didn't catch many fish it was warmer than normal the bite was off. Got a few small Northern Pikes and a small bass. We did see a big Eagles nest with several Eagles, saw loons, deer and other birds. 

We walked the path behind our site to the water & would swim & float on floats in the lake. Great way to relax & cool off. We took cocktails & just floated & enjoyed. 

The town of Ely is about 6 miles away it's a small town with a lot of canoe outfitters, fishing shops, liquor stores, some eats & by far the best Ice cream I ever had from Northern Expressions. The line can be out the door & down the street it's that good. There was a few places to eat we didn't like the Chinese place at all Oriental Orchid it was the worst we ever had. It took a 1/2 hour to get our food we called it in got there in 30 min. and it was at least 30 more once we arrived. We went to the International Wolf center spent a few hours there it was just ok. We did see a few wolves and learned a little.  

The Northern Market makes their own sausage it's good we stocked up on different ones. Nice little grocery store there is a Zups grocery store too. 

We did eat at the Grand Lodge it was good. It's probably 8 miles from the campground.

3 RV sites only slight water view

We were in Site # 1 which there are only 3 sites must be self contained. They are close together yet was a place to stay in Voyagers National park with Full hook up. Wooden Frog State Forest  Campground is next door to it you can use their boat ramp & swim beach. The Lodge has rooms and a bar & restaurant you can sit in the log Lodge or out on the deck. Mike makes a good Margarita but a little pricey. The food is ok. The owners are so nice working hard to maintain the place.  There is a small playground and a community fire pit. 

Great place to watch sunset is at Wooden Frog day use area. 

They have a dock you can keep a boat at or rent a boat if you don't have one. They rent Kayaks & canoes too. We had out own Kayak you really need to get out on the water to enjoy Voyageurs National Park it's all water based. We launched the Kayak mostly at Wooden Frog and once at Arrowhead lodge depending on the wind. 

We kayaked to Bittersweet Island and got out to stretch in a cove. Took a dip and relaxed. There are some leeches in the water so check you feet if your walking around in it. Got a nice juvenile Eagle picture here on was sitting in a tree. 

lake Kabetogama is big with many islands. It can be shallow in places with big rocks submerged out of the water so know where your going. Being in a Kayak you could really see the rocks. We found a nice Swim area off an Island near the submerged rocks with warnings there was primitive camp sites on the islands some were really nice.

Fishing is great we caught Walleye & big Northern Pike.  They clean your fish for you if you want them to.

There are loons (love the sound they make) and White Pelican's on the lake. Some of the white pelicans had big bumps on their beak which we found out they have that bump till they mate. Then the bump falls off so you feel sorry for the ones with a bump on their upper beak. The white throat Sparrow has a great tune they carry. 

We saw several Eagles on the islands out there too. 

We Like to explore so we check out other campgrounds, visitors centers if open and really enjoyed eating at the Rocky Ledge (great Pizza and Patty Melt). International falls is the biggest town it's about a half hour or so away. We ate at Barajas Mexican Grill it was good. Got some groceries and went to one Antique store there. 

Heading the other direction on the Highway was another Antique place called Rainy days Antique. Nice people & a lot of stuff in there. 

We mostly had good weather yet we did have some rain & some marble sized hail once. Some big trees came down in Wooden frog with this storm that had hail.

Nice campground, good hikes, waterfalls, the river and Lake Superior

The drive up the coast towards Tettegouche is beautiful with great views of the coast and all the beautiful wildflowers everywhere in June. When you pull into the park there is a visitor center there but it was closed to to Covid-19. To the right of that is the road to the campground. 

We stayed in site # 20 which was big and private.  We had Electric and filled with water when we entered. You fill with water near the restroom in the campground next to the bath house across from the dumpsters. From our site you can here the river flowing it’s so peaceful. The sites are not level so come prepared. The only downfall is no dump station yet there is a dump station up the road in Silver Bay for a donation. When you leave the park you go left on 61 to the first light & go right at that light. Past the sheriff station on the left is the dump station. 

The smell of Pine is so nice sitting in the campsite or walking a trail. Smells like Christmas. Nice trees

  I think the best sites are #1, 22 and 20. There is a path behind 20 & 22 leading to 2 different falls. It's a easy hike about 1 1/2 miles round trip to High Falls you cross a suspension bridge  to the other side there are lookouts both sides. Now 2 step falls has a 200 stairs so beware. There are many different trails in the park one which goes down to the beach on Lake Superior. 

Close by:

Great fishing from our Kayak on Lax Lake. It's about 5 to 6  miles inland, has a boat ramp very easy access and a dock you can fish on. We caught 3 to 3 1/2 lb Bass, Perch, Northern Pikes and Pan fish.

Firewood can be bought along the side of the road I believe on 1 going towards Lax Lake. There were 2 vendors with cut wood one on each side of the road. The wood wasn't for sale in the park due to COVID. 

 in Silver Bay is Zups grocery, Ace hardware, Gas station, the dump station, and a few places to eat. 

Beautiful views from places along the coast, Palisade Head, (we saw people rock climbing) nice view of cliffs & lake Superior. Split Rock Lighthouse was closed but you could park near the picnic area & walk along the shore on a trail to it. Nice path to get there. Gooseberry Falls is another great little hike within Gooseberry state Park. You can take a dip near the falls or just relax & soak it all in. There were lots of people at the falls when we were there in June. 

Had lunch at Betty;'s Pies it was ok. The place is packed all the time. The we went to the Rustic Inn Cafe they have the best Peanut butter Pie ever along with other great Pies. 

Grand Marais is a cute town it's a drive up the coast but worth seeing it. We had lunch at the Gunflint trail Tavern. It was good especially the steamed dumplings. The French onion soup was good too.  You can drive through many state parks along the coast they are all different.  Many people go the Grand Marias to see the Northern Lights. 

The crows did shred my flannel backed table cloth it was a mess, yet we cut it up and used it to cover the firewood from moisture & rain. A win, win!

This was my favorite State park along the coast of MN.

Busy place

We were at Devil’s lake state park 3 years ago pretty place, good hikes but so busy. The one loop has no privacy or trees. We enjoyed walking one of the trails to where the big blue Heron’s nest it sounded like Jurassic Park when they feed their babies. I will add photos when I can access them. We hiked the gulch which was beautiful so green and lush.

We stayed at Mirror Lake State Park this year it was so quiet and nice big site. We drove to Devil’s lake couldn’t get near it. You waited in traffic forever to get turned away the parking lots were full. People parked way down the roads walking in. If you were camping and went out for the day and came back good luck getting near the campgrounds.

We like to go into Baraboo to the little village cafe great food and all homemade desserts.

The crane foundation is a cool place to visit too.

We bought wood from a guy down the road from Devil’s lake state park $5 for a wheelbarrow full but it wouldn’t burn.

This park is too busy for us we like it quieter.

Waterfront sites on Lake Superior

We had a nice site #39 in the Buffalo Bay campground with water and electric and a view of the lake. #7 was across from us on the water no one was in it till the end of the week so we had an open view of the lake. We walked the marina and sat at an empty picnic table on the shoreline.  Sites 7 and 8 have a fire pit and table right on the shoreline it’s beautiful. You can walk to the casino/ hotel the showers and bathrooms are in one side of the hotel big showers. 

We were cooking dinner watching sunset and a  super blood moon was rising. It was amazing. I didn’t have my good camera out and set up so I didn’t get any great pictures. We weren’t aware of it. 

Close by is a cute town called Bayfield and has shopping, lots to eat and boat rides to the Apostle islands and Madeline island We went to the Apostle islands. Ice caves, a lighthouse and saw some eagles. The water is so beautiful  there.  

The waterfront sites were all reserved there was an airstream convoy going on they were going around Lake Superior.

Big woodsy sites

We have a big private site #138 it’s in the Cliffwood loop at the end where the circle is. We had electric, picnic table, (you have to fill your camper with water after you enter there’s many hoses) we had a fire pit and a private trail behind the campsite that leads to a view of the lake. It has been so quiet in this loop it’s hard to believe it’s opening week due to COVID.

The lake is nice and cold lots of kayaking and canoeing. You can launch at the boat ramp.

There is a swim beach, nice pet area and trails in the park to hike.

There are 3 loops for camping we like the one we’re in. Cliffwood loop Big sites near us ours 138, 137 big but soggy when it rains hard, 136 is nice it has a view of the lake. 139 is ok the back drops down a hill where you park for day use.

Sandstone ridge loop some nice big sites are 74, 75, 77.

Bluewater bay loop has no electric smaller sites we saw all tents in this loop.

Some sites are not level so come prepared.

We ate at Ishnala supper club it’s very pricy yet excellent food. The building is cool with some original parts from the old log cabin it once was. The service is great beautiful view of the lake from a window seat. Several bars and a little gift shop.

Good food in Baraboo at the little village cafe. The chocolate torte is so good. The owners are so nice.

We would stay here again.

Great view of Lake Huron

We had a great site on the lake, an end site with the shoreline in front of us. We had site #48 with water and electric and a great view. Big bath house and laundry room. We went kayaking in the lake it was crystal clear and cool water. Had a great time here at this campground.

Castle rock is across the highway so kayaking and looking back towards the campsite had a good view of castle rock.

In town st. Ignace we bought some local whitefish smoked fish dip that was excellent.

We took the ferry over to mackinac island it was so busy you could barely get down the streets. We did a horse and carriage tour then hit the pink pony for well needed drinks.

Ok state park sites not on the water

We stay a night here and there to break up the drive before heading south. The campground has tight spots hardly any privacy but has full hook up. Some sites back up to an area when the tide comes in it has a marsh behind the campers which can attract mosquitos and has a marsh smell so we camp on the other side of the street. You can drive to the beach in the park and snorkel out to a canon (a replica) there’s a big anchor and reef fish. Take the snorkel trip out to the reefs they are nice and one has a statue Christ of the deep.
Plenty to do around the park , kayak, swim, glass bottom boat tour and more.

Nice campground

We stayed in site # 16 it has full hook up. The park was busy it was Halloween they have a haunted boat ride and a hayride.  Great place to spend Halloween. It was decorated well and there was a fest going on we won a basket of goodies. We walked to the lake there were so many dragonflies it was cool. The birds were swooping up the dragonflies it was interesting to watch. We would go watch sunset at the lake funny our phones read Al. time not GA time.

We had a good time in the park you can kayak or rent a little boat it was cheap.  We rented a boat my husband fished and we drove around the lake. You can have a AL. or GA fishing license here the lake runs through both states. Lots of blooming Lilly's, big oaks with moss, shorebirds and gators. 

Close to this park is Providence canyon which looks like a small Bryce canyon except it was created by poor farming. It's a neat place to see about 6 miles from the park. There's an old church there and some real old graves. There's a nice hike along the rim you can hike down in the canyon too.

Went into Eufaula to Antique and check out the town. The drive there and back is pretty.

Beautiful Park woodsy sites

We stayed in #43 it was awesome we had water and electric, a picnic table and a fire pit. . We had an end spot with woods on one side and behind the site very private. It's a big site I think one of the better in this loop. Nice wooded site very quiet.  The camp host was great he helped us figure out a few things the TV for one. It was chilly out we had a nice fire and had our water resistant blanket on the keep us warm. They are one of the best items we bought. Dark sky just beautiful.

Great hikes in our loop we walked the rim, checked out the walk in sites they are cool. The trail started near our site and went through the primitive camp along a creek to the rim where there are lookouts with great views.

The waterfall across from the other rim is nice we hit it perfect timing there was a rainbow across the falls towards the bottom. Just sat there, relaxed taking it in.  We checked out the entire park I like this side better. There was a visitor center there but it was closed. It was in the 40's to low 50's.

Beautiful park I would stay here again.

Tight spots but woodsy

We stayed in site #4 with water & electric. The spot was tight & the people's picnic table next to us was up high & looked right into our windows in our camper. The best site was #12 we should have moved into it the day after we got there is was open. The campground closes & locks the gate at 10 so be out if your not staying the night.  My cousin was visiting & she left at 10:10 they camp host walked up the gate was locked he had a head lamp on & totally blinded us very intimidating. 

We hiked at the gorge but didn't walk all the way down into the canyon it's a long way back up 300 stairs each way. There is a beautiful hike across the highway the Shortline trail it was beautiful. The old railroad ran through there it's worth the walk, flat trail with a stream running along it. I think it was about a 3 mile hike.

Drove to Black Rock Mountain checked out that state Park & the Campground. Glad we didn't pull our travel trailer up to there is was a tight winding narrow road.  Did some antiquing & ate at the Dillard house. It's a family style meal & way to much food. The place is packed.  Next to the Dillard house is a small distillery RM Rose my husband picked up a bottle of Burbon Whiskey single barrel. 

We went to 12 spies Winery it had a great sunset view we got some wine & sat outside watching sunset.

Great campground with a lot to do in the park

We had a great site a pull thru facing the woods. Site # 75 it had water and electric hook up, cable, picnic table, cement pad and a fire pit. There are some full hook up sites in the park if you want full hook up. Great place to stay!

We could walk to several hikes in the park from our site.  The ferry trail goes along the water and Sandpiper trail it was nice had a picnic table, a bench and beautiful driftwood. 

We hiked the Ferry trail too this was awesome. There are several old stills back there it was a moonshiners paradise. There were old oyster shells along the way where the native Americans lived way back when. There is an observation tower at the river/salt marsh the trail along the water is nice and has some history markers. 

We put the kayak in across the HWY from the park and kayaked back towards the park. Do watch the tides when it goes out you could be hi and dry. 

Tybee Island is close by we spent an afternoon there during the Pirate Fest in October. 

We went to Fort Pulaski it is worth going to see. If you walk the outside wall you can still see mortar in the bricks. There’s cannons, and neat things to see there.

We loved this campground and would return.

Ok park close to things to do

We almost had the campground to ourselves only one other camper came in close to us. It was so quiet and woodsy. We had deer in our site everyday. We were in site #22 the best site was #21. The drive across the little bridge into the campground is neat going over the river. We had water & electric there is a dump station onsite.  We had a paved drive that was about 4" high so when you came down you stairs it was a drop off. It was good to have if it rained a lot but a pain to go in & out the camper. 

The museum was neat there's a lot of History there. The campground has a lot of nice hikes in it. 

Jiffy Burger is around the corner by far the best burger & fires I ever had, It's loaded with cool antiques, has great service and nice people eating in there. The American Pickers was in there before we were there the owner had a lot of good antiques at his home up the road. 

Jack Daniel's Distillery is close buy & so worth doing the tour and tasting. Jack did a lot for the people that worked for him & the town. Near the Jack Daniel's distillery is Lynchburg winery not bad. George Dickel Distillery is close too.

We went antiquing & found the most amazing place called Shelton Lane Antiques. This place is like a little village with a gas station, general store, and all kinds of little buildings. I have never seen such nice antiques. We thought where the heck is this place maybe we passed it or something it's out in the middle of nowhere. 

We went kayaking on Fire lake small winding roads really a cool drive. Pretty lake with some islands & inlets.  Nice day on the water.
