Thanksgiving Getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay!  My family spent Thanksgiving week here and we all agree it was one of the best!  We were in the back sites which turned out to be great; it was wide, deep, with lots of trees and vegetation around to give our site privacy and a beachy feel.  We were as close as we wanted/needed to be to St. Augustine and a few minute walk to the beach.  We were right by the river and were able to get our kayaks out.  The pool was great and there is a small store on site with the basics.  Just few miles down in Vilano there is grocery stores and restaurants, with even more in St. Augustine if needed.  We did not get a chance to enjoy the 3 restaurants within walking distance but heard from neighbors they were all great.  This is a place we definitely have on the list for future visits (maybe every-other Thanksgiving).  Note, you have to bring your own fire pit with a screen, but we have a @solostove so that is preferred for us anyway.

PROs:  very quite and private site.  The pool was great and our kids spent a lot of time there when we were not at the beach.  The beach across the street was great and convenient but we also spent time at Vilano and St. Augustine beaches.  St. Augustine is a great city to check out; a lot of fun shops and restaurants in the historic downtown, the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, the Alligator Farm was awesome!  We loved driving on Augustine Beach and enjoying the surf.  Even a week there we have a lot of things we were not able to fit in.

CONs: For the price, the bathrooms and laundry are very old and are in need of some remodeling. The trash dumpsters are at the entrance so you have to carry out your trash quite a long way. when you are in the back (this was not a big deal for us, we took it when heading to the pool or beach, but it might be for some people).
