This is a very nice park, only negative is if you are closest to I-295 then you get a lot of road noise. Nice lake and play areas for kids. They have a cafe that sells good food at reasonable prices so you don't need to run out after a long day on the road. We stayed one night and wished we had stayed a bit longer but we will go back again. Sites were decent, we had a back in near 295. The site had loose stone that made the truck wheels want to spin in it while backing into site, should have used a different type that hard packed like crusher run stone mix. All in all a nice place to stop for overnight or longer.

We arrived checked in and were assigned a site. We drove to the site and it was being used by the propane truck. We called the office and a camp worker took us to some other sites to see if they would be a better fit. A lot of sites were short for a fifth wheel of 38 ft. plus a pickup, which by the way they say just park on the roadway in front of your RV. We finally found a site that was a bit bigger and my truck and RV fit on the site. All of the sites had stone bases and were very level, we had a back-in site. The electric box was so far forward I had to put my 50 amp and a 30 amp cord together to make it. If campgrounds would put the utilities in the center of the site it would make life much easier. Our rig has the electric connection in the rear if all sites were in the middle most cords would make it ok. The wifi worked ok, no problems. The dog walk area is located under the high tension wires but it gives them plenty of room to exercise. It is a pity that some dog owners do not pick up after there pets even though the campground provides doggy doo bags for them. We were able to drive to the Metro station and park to get to downtown DC for sightseeing. The park staff was very helpful with information on how to get around DC. The campground also has a cafe that has a well equipped kitchen and friendly staff. We stayed here for 5 days in a fifth wheel and we will be back again. This is a great place to stay and we have been here many times before. The campground is adding new cottages and a Lodge for people without campers to be able to enjoy the DC area.

Easy access to I-95. Nice clean park with well maintained level gravel sites. Only complaint on the sites is the sewer and electric are up near the front of the site and our electric is in the rear of the trailer. Needed two lengths of electric cable one 50 amp and a 30 amp to get to the box. I would recommend pulling a fiver up to the front and disconnect. Then park in the back of the site, that way the sewer hose and electric cable would be closer. TV is OK, but not a lot of channels. Internet service was OK, also. We would stay here again.,

This campground is close to I-95 and also comes with the noise from the traffic. The sites are dirt, sand, and some stone. It's a nice park but there are things that could be done to improve it. Lots of trees and roots in and around the site making it hard to walk or level the rig. Cable TV was terrible and not worth watching. Internet was spotty. It does have a nice storage facility for those needing to leave their rigs. Nice folks that run the park. Just didn't feel the park was worth the price but just my opinion.

This campground could be so much better if the staff would do something to clean it up. After a rain the sites are soft and mushy. Some stone would make a big difference and make the sites better after a storm. There are old campers that haven't moved or been lived in for years located in the park. The good is the Passport price and the closeness to I-95. Flying J and the Denny's restaurant are a plus. Good food at Denny's and cleaner than most. This campground is an overnight stop and not much more. We stayed in a fifth wheel.

We stay here on our way to Fl.and back again on the way home. Very friendly staff and will show you to your site. The campground was expanded with about 80 new sites mostly out in the open, no trees. The older section has trees and some hang down a bit as our site did, and dragged across our roof. I mentioned it to staff and they made a note to have it corrected. The sites are gravel/stone with many pull through sites. Easy access and exit from most sites. Nice dog park in both sections of the c.g. Take some caution here, our dogs stepped on some spikey things in the new section dog park and had to remove them with tweezers. Not sure what they are called someone said they were sand spurs or some such thing. No problem was found in the older section as it had more grass areas. We like this campground and will stay here again.

Very friendly staff, clean campground,seems to be well maintained. I had some trouble with my rv getting a tv signal and one of the staff riding around on a golf cart stopped to see if he could help. It turned out to be something on my rv and not the park service but the staff tried to help by testing the connection at the pole with another cable and tv to check it out. Nice dog park but did not see any doggie doo bags anywhere, this should be available near the trash can. Though there are always those who think they are too good to pick up their own dogs mess, no matter how much is provided for them. Anyway, the C.G. is located right next to I-95 but with an a/c on you don't notice it. And even outside sitting at the picnic table you hear it but it is not objectionable. All in all it is a very nice stop and the sites are all stone and fairly level, with easy entrance and exit. Some trees for shade but not a problem with hanging branches they seem to be well trimmed. We stop here often and will be back again, we camped in a fifth wheel.

Every year we camp here going to FL and back home again. Every year I wonder why I stop here. Mostly because it is convenient and price is good. The campground is old and many indigent people living on site, some in storage sheds. Old RVs with trash and debris all around the sites on right side of park. Left side is usual spots for overnighters. These sites are stone and grassy areas that have low spots that fill when it rains. We were in a site that after the rains had 3 to 4 inches of water in it to try and hook up in. Also the ground was soft and worried that we would get stuck trying to exit the site. The positives are it is close to I-95, fuel at Flying J, Denny's, and grocery store close by. This campground could be so much more if someone took a little initiative and cleaned it up and improved the sites with more stone to fill in the low spots. It might be a bit more of a drive but I'm going to Jacksonville next year.

This has to be the cleanest campground and the nicest one we have been in for quite some time. The sites are concrete pads with grass and palm trees around. Electric, water, and sewer are located in the right spots. Our site was a pull through when no one was in the other site behind us. There are a few adjoining sites like that but the sites are all angled for easy back in and are plenty large enough for big rigs. The rest rooms look like a hotel restroom; exceptionally clean. The shower stalls are small rooms with a door and have hooks for hanging clothes and a seat. The laundry room has six washers and dryers that look like new. Adjoining the laundry room to the rear is a screened in porch area that overlooks the pond. A very nice place to sit and read a book while your laundry is being done. The staff is very friendly and someone guides you to your site and helps you get it into place. I am told that it is booked for the 2012 winter season already and I have no doubt about it. It is a really nice location and I would camp here again if in the area.

Jetty Park has great potential, but as is most campgrounds the people who either run it or are doing the construction, never traveled or stayed at a campground. I found several sewer sites that had the drain pipe cover installed backwards to the position of the RV, meaning the hose would have to go around the pipe and come in backwards. Also the pipe was raised and inside a concrete container with a drain, that if you had a low camper the hose would have to run up hill to go to the sewer drain. The roads are a combination of sand, dirt, and crushed shells, which were OK, but the roads were like a maze within the park, with one way signs at some locations. Be careful when driving; there was a pair of tree stumps close to one road that a camper hit and ruined a tire as he made the turn to go to his camp site. The site we were given would have been better to access had we come in and backed in from the drivers side, but we had to go the direction of the one way sign. This made backing in much more difficult and unnecessary. About the only thing I can say positive, is the location--right on the beach and next to the exit and entrance to the port where you can watch the big ships come and go. We were there to see family off on the Disney Fantasy and you can get a great view of the ship as it is leaving. We would camp there again, but it would not be my choice for an extended stay. Dogs are an extra fee of $2 per day; why, I am not sure as they do not use the toilets and do not consume a great deal of water. Last but not least, take along fresh water because the water that comes out of the pipes smells like recycled sewer water. Don't think it is, but I wouldn't drink it. It smelled so bad that the next day at a different campground I completely drained the system including the hot water tank to get rid of the odor. I still had some residual odor coming from the hot water. I had two filters on the RV, and it didn't make any difference with the awful smell of Jetty Park's water. The park is undergoing some renovation, but it looked to be almost complete. It's too bad that they didn't consult some campers and really learn how to lay out a campground.

This place is huge! There are a couple of areas that RV'ers can camp at inside the park. One is the Queen section and the other is the King section. We are in the Queen and it looks like its a bit older. The King section looked like the sites were a bit larger and newer with more space between them. Our site was Q26 and had a narrow road between rows. Trying to make the turn to get into the site was a bit difficult. There were cars being motorhomes on the left side and a electric utility post on the left side to watch out for. We made it OK but it was very tight. I would have had it much easier if we were on the King section. The campground itself has many amenities, swimming pool, disc golf, lawn bowling, shuffleboard, horseshoes, and many many more things than can be listed here. There is a restaurant by the pool and a bar area. There is a children's play area and splash pool for them. There are dog run areas with bags and trash containers. It is a small city with mostly mobile homes in the park and sites for transient RV'ers in those two sections. It's a nice place if you like all of those amenities, but personally I prefer a bit quieter place to camp. We would camp here again if we were in the area and passing through.

As already stated by others, this is way off the beaten path, but the only camp in the area worth going to. Sites are a bit strange, instead of the sewer connections on the normal left side, you will find some on the opposite side which makes it that you would have to run the sewer hose under the RV and the sewer connection would be on the door or awning side. The only way around this is to drive straight into the site, ok for a motorhome but not so for a TT or Fiver. Also there is no ATT cell signal in most of the park. This park could be so much more than it is and I would hope the owners would continue to improve the sites and sewer hookups, which would make them more useable for all Rv's. It is a nice quiet park, a bit rustic but still a nice place to stay. We stayed here in a fifth wheel and would stay here again. Call for reservations though as space is limited with mobile homes and permanent campers.

This is a fairly nice campground with a view of the lake. No fenced dog walk area as some KOA's have, but has areas around the lake for walking them. My biggest complaint with this park is the sites are sandy with many low spots that collect water and many are uneven to one side. A bit of fill stone and some grading and this could be a much better campground. Also, trees opposite your site could be a major headache when trying to leave your site. I gave it some thought that backing out of my pull through site, would have been my first choice if the site in front had been occupied. They should do everyone a favor and cut a few of the trees making exiting much easier and safer.

We have stayed here many times usually during the old car runs in May. The price is not bad for this time of year but it gets rather pricey after Memorial day. Sites are level and dry for the most part, but after a prolonged rainstorm some sites get standing water in them. Staff was efficient in checking in and plenty of staff working in the park. We will come back again.

This is a nice campground with pull through sites and some back ins. We were in a pull through with plenty of room for slides and site was fairly level with sand and a concrete pad. Very close to Disney World and restaurants, also Old Towne just a few miles west. Streets are paved and pet walking is good, with boxes with dooty bags and receptacle. Laundry area is very good, the machines were in good working order. Staff in the office were friendly. Park is maintained well and has shuffleboard and a putt putt course, and play area. We will return again.

This is a nice park but it is mostly permanent RV's and park models. There are a few sites for transient RV'ers but from what I saw not many. I was put on F5, though there were two other sites available, I was not allowed to go to them. I was told they were reserved for 40 ft rigs coming. My fifth wheel is 38 ft but that didn't matter. F5 had a large palm tree on right side and a electric post on the left side that I had to negotiate entering the site. With some difficulty I got into the site. Then putting the slides out, my left slide went out over the concrete pad and picnic table of the neighboring site. My TV slide was just in front of the sign post with the site number. It was a tight fit and I was not happy when a Minnie Winnie came into the site that was reserved for a 40 footer. Other than that, the streets are paved, the laundry is excellent and dog walking is good with plenty of grass. Lots of French Canadians in the park. Park is close to Vero Beach and Port St. Lucie.

I really liked this campground, it was convenient to New Smyrna Beach area and plenty of restaurants, including my favorite Dunkin D. The campground sites were level, and wide enough for slides. The office staff were very friendly and offered tips on local eateries and things to do. I purchased LP gas and the price was decent and by the gallon. We stayed here for five days and we will come back again.

This was a nice clean campground, with easily accessible pull through sites. The sites were fairly level and wide enough for slide outs. They had lights on posts making it nice for walking the pets at night, and plenty of grassy areas. The laundry room was clean and machines were good. We would come back again. Nice place to enjoy the St. Augustine area.

Very friendly staff greeted us upon arrival. Campground is close to I-95 and easy in and out. Sites are level,with plenty of room, it has a dog walk area, and the bathrooms were clean. Though it was cold enough to freeze, the bathrooms were warm and comfortable. We have stayed here before on our southerly trip and will again. The campground is also expanding adding another 80 sites.
