Beautiful river and mountain views. Showers were clean, and so was the porta potti. However it states "No Alcohol" and in fact it was allowed, numerous campers partying, drinking and being very loud in to the early morning hours. If its a good night sleeps you need, then look elsewhere. It also states "no pets under 15 lbs" when in fact there were dogs there over that limit. While the tent sites were nice and large, We found the campground not very family friendly, and poorly managed. We drove from Florida, over 500 miles, and will not stay there again.

Very nice park to stay at and to explore the history that Jekyll Island has to offer. We stayed at site D02, right up front and noticed quite a bit of traffic during the day, but it calmed down during the evening hours. This site was originally assigned to our friends who were there in a motorcoach but it was too much of a tight turn to get in. There are some tight spots in this campground. Biking around the island is great; all the bike paths are concrete or paved. There is no playground for small kids in the campground but there are 2 very nice playgrounds at the Putt-Putt center for kids to enjoy and it's free. Access fee for the island is $5 so make sure you have all the things you need and if you leave the island, expect to pay that to get back on each time. At the time of our stay, there was no WI-FI up in the front camping spots by the office.

We stayed at this park with friends after the great reviews we saw on this site. It was off season so it was not crowded, only 2 other campers around us and maybe a total of 15 through out the park. The sites we stayed on were rustic, but level and had plenty of shade trees. Our friends utilized the restroom/showers and all we heard from them was the great compliments of how clean and secure they were. They have two pools and a spa, one pool has two lanes to swim laps, one is a general pool. While at pool, we noticed they had some pool accessories for use and our kids enjoyed the use of them. I would highly recommend this campground and will return for future visits to central Florida.

Stayed at Andrew Jackson State Park while visiting family in NC and SC. Campground is limited to only 25 sites which in the 5 day stay we had, the park at best was half full. The park in general was a great place to stay. Staff was very friendly and constantly riding around maintaining the grounds. The lake offers great fishing, and ducks commonly rove around the grounds and were a great hit with our two small boys. All sites have fire rings with grills attached, although our site also included a charcoal grill as well. Digital TV reception was very good with picking up stations in Charlotte and Columbia. Some sites are not as level as others, which our original site was not, but we asked to move and park staff was very helpful in allowing us to change. Park does have a very good playground for kids. I will return and stay at this park.

We LOVED this park. VERY quiet with lots of privacy. Spacious oversize lots. Shade Trees, Lake for fishing and swimming, nature trails for biking and walking. My only advice is for them to update their playground, I hope they would put stuff in for the smaller kids. Staff was very, very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be back and hopefully would like to stay longer.

Stayed one night while passing through on our way home, and was very impressed. Grounds are very well maintained, spacious lots with what looked like new picnic tables. Wide streets to maneuver, and an abundance of pull through spots. Quiet at night, very friendly and helpful staff, we frequent the Charleston Area quite a bit and will definitely camp here again. My only wish is that the pool was more centered on the grounds, and that they would add more to their playground for the little kids.

Very good campground, stayed at site 90 for 5 days and had to deal with a red-clay muddy mess for 3 of those due to T.S Fay since the grass was gone from this site, but it understandable due to the drought in this area of the country and we made the best of it. Wi-Fi was great, didn't have to leave camper to access the internet. We had to change our plans twice due to T.S Fay and Staff is very accommodating to our changes and very friendly. They have a security patrol that comes through about every hour or two. I would suggest that the park lower their rates since the park was closed during the week and only open on weekends before they finally close for the year. I will return to this park in the future.
