Traveling cross country in our ss500 Palomino & Toyota Tacoma

Off the beaten path!

If you want a cheap campground that’s super secluded this is your spot!! $25/night, first come first serve.. and there was only a few more people camping there so your odds of getting a site are fair! We loved our stay here, long ride to get there but a very unique spot. We went through the trails that have a lot of history to them if you read up on them. Also we went into town a few times which is a great little town, great food spots and bars! Nice little fishing town. Only reason for the 4 stars is the bathhouse, could use a little bit of a renovation but the water was hot and there was toilet paper so can’t complain too much!

Nice campground but RACOONS EVERYWHERE

We enjoyed our one night stay here outside of St. Petersburg! Secluded from town but not too far! The waterfront sites looked beautiful, especially if you have a kayak or paddle board to use! We stayed on the other side where the trail wraps all the way around for biking or walking. I do have to mention there seems to be a big critter problem here, raccoons kept us up for a good part of the night. I usually don’t mind wildlife but they seemed a bit rabid and aggressive, I was afraid to use the community garbages they had placed every 30 feet!

Unexpected beauty

This campground has more to offer then just a few sites. It has so many bikes trails and hikes that kept us occupied all day! Clean bathhouse and a community sink! We stayed at Site 20 which in my opinion was the best site out of all of them… secluded with lots of privacy and a view of the creek that runs through the campground!

For larger RV’s

Unfortunately we weren’t able to stay here since it is for larger RV’s. If you are in this area with a motor coach and looking for a nice spot that has things to do near by this is a great choice. It sits on a small river that the airboats go up and down, which can be a little noisy but if you don’t mind it’s a great choice. We did an airboat tour of the mangroves right across from the resort & marina at Captain Jack’s which was so much fun!!! Afterward we drove to a little cafe on the water where we had Stone Crab and calamari, DELICIOUS!!

We love this spot!

After calling 6+ other campgrounds in the Keys to find a site for 2 night we came across Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge on our drive to Key West. They had an open site available! And it was cheaper then other campgrounds in the Keys We were right across from the water, an awesome view with the bridge. There is also a nature walk there that we explored. The amenities including the heated pool felt like luxury!! Can’t forget about the Key Deer, they were adorable and quite friendly with us! Highly recommend this spot!!

Great FL spot!!

We stumbled upon this park on accident and we are so glad we did. The guy who checked us in after hours was so nice!! A good size campground with an awesome bike path, you can see gators and turtles all over! Bathhouse was decent! Highly recommend

Bring your bikes!

We had planned to come to Jekyll Island but did not realize how packed the campground would be. They managed to find us a spot but wanted a two night minimum because it was the weekend. Spots were a bit on top of eachother, but once we got out for the campground to explore the island we fell in love!
So many bike trails all around the island! We rode all the way into town and back, stopping at the market and riding over to the historic district was super neat! Also if you make it there in the winter they have an amazing light show set up under the oak trees which we just stumbled upon, jaw dropping! Jekyll island is highly recommended, the campground is OK if you don’t mind being on top of eachother… we like our space 😅

Favorite campground we’ve ever been at!

It will be hard to share how much we loved this spot! First off, the location to Charleston, Folly Beach, and Mt. Pleasant doesn’t get much better! We planned on staying just 3 nights but made it 4 once we realized how great of a spot it is. They have bike trails, a dog park, a water park (which is obviously closed in the winter), laundry, a camp store and very clean bathhouse! It’s a bit pricey but for the location and all the amenities it’s worth it!!!!

Also… if you are looking for nearby things to do I highly recommend taking the hour drive south to Botany Bay Plantation to see the driftwood beach!

Cozy & Woodsy Campground

We only stayed here for one night but from what we saw it was a great location to town and had its own marina. We hadn’t made a reservation ahead of time but the very friendly park ranger just had us make a reservation on the website as we found a spot close to the bath house that was available. Clean and friendly, would recommend!

Very cool campground!

Not only is this campground surrounded by tall pines and beautiful lakes it is spotless. The campsites are well spaced and give a bit of a community feel with cabins near by the bath house, which also is incredible!!! Heated bathrooms are a plus in our book! Highly recommend 👍🏼

The Windy Campground

Though we were caught camping in what seemed to be a very dramatic North Carolina storm we made the best of it. Good location all around, close to the ocean and cool towns nearby. Showers could use some updating but I guess that’s what we get for winter camping on the coast! Also another down side… close to the highway so it was a bit loud at night

Peaceful spot

We only stayed on Assateague for 1 night on our way down the east coast. We camped on the bayside which had a really pretty view of the marsh and large camp sites. No electric hookup or water which is expected for winter camping, we managed without for the night. We took a ride over to the ocean camp sites and found some horses! Worth a stop just for the simplicity of it all!
