Loved this park! Apparently its the best kept secret in Jacksonville as there were only about 30-40 sites being occupied most of the time we were here. We were here for 8 days. GREAT access to the beach. Beaches inside the park have lifeguards, which was so nice. The water fountain park was open while we were here but its geared for children under 52 inches. Campground hosts were very friendly and visible throughout our stay. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. Excellent park for bike riding. MANY trails.
We loved this campground! Lots of trees...shade, etc..Bike rental is available at the campground and Jekyll is a fantastic place to bike all over the island. The community room has a computer with Internet connection for you to use if you can fight the teenagers off of the computer. The only downside to this campground is there are only 2 bathhouses and they are located toward the front of the campground. If you are tent camping or in a pop up and are stuck in the back of the campground, you have quite a walk to the bathroom (not fun if you get up in the middle of the night LOL). The bathhouses were very clean and the water pressure was GREAT!!! Staff was awesome. Campground store sold all the basics but very expensive. Propane was 29.99 for a tank so if you need it, be prepared to pay for it. Much cheaper off the island.
Great campground. The only thing we didn't like was the water pressure in the bathhouses were very low and the water wasn't very warm. We took lukewarm showers. The campground was very nice. Most sites are water front (right on the river/intercoastal) Sites are very small and no buffers (very little trees). Great breeze from the river. Firewood is available at the store at the entrance to the campground but its $7.00 for a bundle, which we thought was expensive. We would stay here again though. Great views!!! Sebastian Inlet State Park is just down A1A and the beaches are beautiful there.
We enjoyed this campground. Most sites are lake views. We were at site 100. This entire loop has zero shade. We are staying in the loop right next to it (site 113) in a few weeks and those sites are very shaded. There are only 2 bathhouses in the campground so you either have to take a long walk or drive your car (or bike) to take a shower. However, there are restrooms scattered throughout the park within short walking distance. Bring your water shoes as the lake bottom is very rocky and mucky.
If you enjoy camping at the beach, this is a wonderful campground. We have been twice and had a blast both times. You have to book almost a year in advance to get an ocean front site in the summer. We were at site 113 and enjoyed it. Lots of shady sites throughout the campground. Bring your crab nets and head down to the marsh boardwalk or the pier. We enjoyed catching and eating them for dinner. The campground store is very nice. Prices are a little high but for small conveniences, its worth it. The nearest grocery store is 10 miles away so make sure you are well stocked before you arrive. You can buy fresh shrimp right off the boat about a mile or 2 outside of the campground. Great campground for bike riding too. You can bike right on the sand at the beach. Great place for children. The bathhouses were a little dated but that is typical in most state parks. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed this campground. It's not a very large campground and some of the sites are a little small but it was fine for us. The staff was VERY nice and very accommodating, the pool was great, and the bath houses were probably the nicest we have ever used. Each bathhouse has 4 private bathrooms with a toilet, sink and shower. When we first pulled into the campground, we were concerned about safety because its literally located right off a side street in Tybee and easily accessible for "outsiders". But if you have ever been to Tybee, you'll know its a very safe area so we felt at ease once we were comfortable with the surroundings. Its a great little town for bike riding. You can ride your bike over the entire island. The beach is a short bike ride/walk from the campground.
We really enjoyed this park. The campground doesn't have water hook up but there are water faucets placed throughout the park so it wasn't a problem. We just filled up our 7 gallon portable tank and it was fine. We had site number 66 and loved it. Lots of grassy areas for the kids to play in. Great campground for the kids to ride their bikes too. The state park also has a VERY nice pool with a fun water slide and diving board. ($2.00 per person per day) The campground store is closed but you can purchase ice and firewood at the campground entrance. If you are looking for a great place to eat in Madison, check out the "Downtowner". Yummy food!
