Perfectly good campground. When arriving I asked about the WiFi and was told there had been issues but all has been resolved. And it's excellent. Make sure you check their website to verify the address/directions as the hosts told me there's an incorrect address on the internet that some have mistakenly used. There's room between the gravel/grass sites and the campground has gravel/dirt roads. It was a bit buggy, but not terrible. Bathrooms were very clean.
Rate was 27.50, as we were there over the weekend. During the week, seniors get a 15% discount. Very bumpy paved roads in the campground. The sites were gravel/grass. We had no problem finding a level site, but we're only 22'. Lots of trees and good shade. As others have said, our cell phone and Wi-Fi (Verizon/AT&T) didn't work. Their Wi-Fi didn't work for us either. Pretty crude shower facilities. Lots of hiking trails.
We got the last site on Fathers Day weekend. Staff were VERY helpful and friendly. The site was fine for an overnight. Bathrooms and shower area were disgusting...think nasty gas station facilities. Who knows when they had last been cleaned. Men's toilet didn't flush. Water flashed hot/cold with no rhyme or reason in women's shower. Dinner at the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
Very basic, but it's the only place around. AT&T cell phone didn't work. Bathrooms are a 2 room log cabin with a concrete floor and a laundry wash tub for a sink. It's fine for an overnight stay. The Pie Town Café (very close by) had excellent pie.
This is a wonderful park. My only reason for a 9 rating is that because the sites are grass/sand, it's hard to not track sand inside. The shower was spacious and handicap accessible. In Florida, if you are near water then the gnats/no see sums can be a problem for awhile at sunset and sunrise. That said they can also swarm for a few days now and then. We stayed for a night at the end of June and had no gnat/no see um issues at all. It was sprinkling when we arrived and then there was a bit of a breeze later on. But in the morning, no breeze and no bugs.
Beware of staying here if the ground is wet. We have a 22' motorhome and while trying to pull into a site quickly realized we would get stuck if we proceeded. Some fast work in reverse saved us. Couldn't find anyone to talk with. We saw some deep ruts at another site that even had more grass than the one we attempted to use. No bathrooms that we saw. We left.
It's a beautiful wooded CG. Loop B has electricity and some sites have water too. Bathrooms are OK, but no heat so cold on chilly days (it was in the 40's when we were there, which is very cold for 2 Florida types). Showers have hot water. We saw a bear when leaving. Our rate reflects the National Park Senior Pass discount. There is absolutely no cell service at all.
No water/electricity at the sites, and no hot water showers. Bathrooms are pretty basic/rustic. Lots of sand spurs they were everywhere. Very nice beach. Not many CG choices on the island, and they close this one at the end of October for the winter. The rate reflects the National Park Senior Pass.
The CG turned out to be quite convenient for getting back and forth to Savannah. They had the option of having a local shuttle come pick you up/return you so you could spend the day in Savannah. We didn’t go this route so don’t know what the pricing was…the round trip is included as part of a tour package. Roads thru campground bumpy/rough. CG is rundown. Staff were nice. Bathrooms old but they're trying to keep them clean. Sites are close together. There were many trees and many sites have good shade. Some paved sites - 50A, many with gravel/packed sand. Some (like we requested w 30A & no sewer) are packed sand. We stayed in the section away from the highway and it was quiet. It has WiFi, which is good, as no AT&T cell service. We'd stay there again.
The CG is run by the city of Chesapeake, Va. It has gravel/dirt sites, which were level. Some sites have electricity. Bathrooms clean but very rustic. Concrete walls hold the cold, so no showers for us wussy Florida types. Did laundry but had to call the ranger to make it work. They had changed how much the laundry cost but that was not listed anywhere. There was a long walk along a forest trail. It is a very wooded area. We ended up being the only people to stay the night at the CG which was a bit spooky.
What a spacious wonderful CG with lots of trees. Just about every site shaded on river side. I can’t recommend it highly enough. And if you live in Florida and are a senior citizen, then you pay half price for the camping with no entrance fees (hence the $14 rate). Large modern clean bathrooms. Sites are level with sandy packed dirt. We didn’t check out the beach sites (which were full anyway). Beach side I understand there’s no shade. Watch for sand spurs near the shoreline of the river.
