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.
A few too many rules for me but overall a good experience. It isn’t terribly pet friendly but we were able to quickly tour the fort within the allotted 30 minutes we could leave our dog alone. Stayed in the river loop and the drive in was beautiful with overhanging trees and Spanish moss. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Site size was good enough for us and hammocks are permitted. Cannot speak to the Atlantic loop as dogs are not allowed. The beach along the river was a nice walk and accessible from our campsite. People often find shark teeth but we weren’t as lucky.
Must reserve online, rangers are only able to book same day reservations.
