Got to the park at 12:30. Office closes at 12:00. Called the number on the door. I was told to pick site 1-4. Electric pedestal was rusted out. Cable TV line came out of the ground. Campground was unkempt, worn out looking. It was right next to a motorcycle tire yard. Made a u-turn and found another campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here for 4 months while building a house. Never missed a rent payment, was quiet and kept to myself. Landlord threatened to call animal control on my dogs because he "thought that I left them in my air conditioned trailer overnight". I never did and he wouldn't know anyways without snooping. The wifi is lousy. Most times I can barely load a webpage and it has gone down several times. Water was turned off for repairs without notifying the tenants; I had to call the office to see what was wrong. Landlord expects traveling tenants to mow the grounds while he does nothing else to make the place nice or safe. Office is only open for 5 hours a day M-F, so don't expect to be able to receive packages from UPS, etc. I have frequently seen missed delivery notices on the office door. Landlord is not friendly by any means, and for $450/mo you would think he could at least smile. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We called and spoke with the manager and made reservations to arrive on Saturday. We arrived to find a sign on the office door, "CLOSED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY". Well, we also saw a phone number to call in emergency; called the cell number without any response (recording). Very helpful tenants above the office gave us the number for the park owner; sorry to say, same non response. Long story short, we walked the campground. There were several permanent campers (not bad people). Campground is VERY rundown with coax cables run across multiple sites to reach a camper's site. We left and found a beautiful park elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have camped in this area on many occasions when I visit Amelia Island. I have usually past it by because I was not familiar with it as it has never been reviewed on this site, and it is not very convenient to Amelia Island. On this occasion I was staying in another campground and it was dirty all around so I went over to check out this campground and was pleasantly surprised. We only stayed here a short while but overall the grounds were clean, sites fairly level, generally quiet and most importantly to me, the showers and rest rooms were spotless. The campground is inhabited by mostly permenant residents but there are many sites that are available for transient campers and a lot of them are pull through. It has a pool but it was too cool to check it out. My one gripe is that it is a bit far for me to go to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach but the price is certainly reasonable ($420.00) for the month and it is clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Perfect midway point for us traveling from Orlando area back to NC. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Older campground with extra long sewer lines needed for sewer hookup. Sites really close. Pet friendly with trails and a lake. Great location right off the interstate without noise from the road. Some rundown, permanent sites there but for overnight, had everything we needed and price was GREAT! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The name of the campground has been changed to Horne Lake. The campground is quite run down and not big rig friendly. It has been a very long time since Good Sam has visited this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good enough as a one night, in and out. Very easy access. Right next to the ramp of I-95 exit #380. Two miles from GA line. Spaces are little narrow, but plenty long enough to avoid unhooking. The sewer location is so far to the rear of the sites it might be easier to us the dump station on your way out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is now Osprey First in Florida RV Park, but everything else is the same as previous reviews. Wi-Fi still broken. Our concrete pull-through site was long enough that we didn't unhook for the one night we spent here. Sites are VERY close together, but it is a good place to stop for one night. Easy on and off interstate, long sites, decent price. I would stop here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Older park. Sites are all pull though with concrete pads. Small sites that make your neighbors very close if you both have slide outs. Easy on and off the freeway. No Wi-Fi even though advertised as such. Been "broke" since January (I assume that is this year). Good for overnight but would not want to stay much longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is ok for an over night stop. It is very convenient to the interstate. There are long sites for those not wanting to unhook. Space is limited between sites and they are very out of level. There are major ant problems. Although sanitation available, located nearly at the rear of all sites necessitating use of extended sanitation lines. No dump station is noted on the campground map. Since we have sani-con, either I dump before fully entering the site or take it with me (which we did). There are many permanent rigs in as either getaways for the locals or many snowbirds settled in for the season. We will continue to use this campground as our stopover during travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were on our way to a vacation destination and needed a place to overnight. My uncle had suggested this place, so we stopped. Everyone was friendly, and the campground was okay for a one nighter, but I wouldn't call this anything better than an "I need a place to stay and this is safer than a rest stop," kind of a place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here over the Thanksgiving holiday, to visit friends. All of the roads are paved and the sites are all concrete and pull throughs. The problem is that the sites are very narrow and therefore are very close to each other. If you have a big rig with slides you will have some problems in that your slide will be over your neighbors campsite. Because we have a small (19') TT we did not have a problem but we did not like having people so close. The grounds are clean, the bath area is clean and well kept, and management was always on site. It seemed that most of the RV's were long term users but it did not have a trailer park feel or look. All of the sites were well maintained. They do not allow individual campfires but they have a community camp fire site that is always availaable for use. Since we were there over Thansgiving the management had a very large Thanksgiving dinner for anyone who wanted to come. We did not attend but we saw that most of the others did and it seemed quite nice. Comfortable and clean but sites are small. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very good example of Trailer Life over-rating a park in exchange for a large ad. While not a a bad park, it was in NO WAY worth a 10/10/9 as rated in TL 2002. The TL lists Instant Phones, WRONG. The modem hook-up in the Rec Room is open from 1 PM until around 6 PM or so and costs $3. (Which they didn't mention at check in. Only AFTER I plugged in to check my e-mail and got mad at me for not paying in advance). The staff is
marginal and unlike what the ad states, the owners are NOT on the property. The sites are very narrow and the placement of trees makes it difficult. Our slide when
extended made the use of our neighbors picnic table impossible. A 10/10/9??? I don't think so. We camped here in a camper.

We stayed in this camprground for 3 nights. This place doesn't come close to the write up in Trailer Life. The sites, although concrete were very uneven. Their modem connection is a pay phone hanging on an outside wall. With that being said we had decided to stop there for a couple of nights (because of there proximity to the highway) late in January on our way further south. I have emailed them twice and left two messages on their answering machine looking for information. No response to either. This is a good idea of the attitudes you encounter when you go there.

If you want to visit the area of Fernandina Beach, then this is the most convenient place to stay. Fort Clinch is closer, but it is very difficult to find a spot there during the summer months and at times you are overrun with Mosquitos. The spots that are held open for transient guest are fairly large and lever and it does adjoin Lofton Creek that has a boat ramp and dock area. Other then that the campsite has no other amenities to offer. I think the manager attempts to keep the bath and shower area clean but it is old and difficult especially with the permanent residents continually dragging in mud and dirt. Notwithstanding, until there is a better alternative, this is the best place to stay if you want to visit the Fernandina Beach area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid $150 because we stayed a week. The absolute only reason we stayed here is because we wouldn't be at the campground only to sleep. The location is perfect for Amelia Island. We visited family there and thus were not at the campground during the day. It is filled with permanent RVs. They do not keep their sites neat or clean. The host was very friendly and actually mowed the grass while we were there. It was very long when we arrived. A very rough, dirty road. The sites are on grass. Easy on and off of Hwy A1A. A quick overnight stay is the only reason we would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
