Jekyll Island Campground, Jekyll Island, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

When it comes to natural beauty, it doesn't get any better than this park! The moss draped "Live Oak" trees, as the locals call them, are everywhere. The campground was quiet and relaxing. If you are going for some R & R, this is a good place. There is really not much else to do in the campground itself. There are many squirrels here and they are so tame that they will come and eat, right out of your hand. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground is situated across the street from the beach, however the beaches were disappointing. There was not a lot of sand or waves. If you enjoy history there is plenty here to see by walking, or by over twenty miles of level bike trails. There are also tram and horse drawn carriage tours of the historic district. You can also go horse back riding on the beach here. There are not many restaurants on the island. We enjoyed our stay here but do not plan on returning because of the mosquitoes. I've lived all my life in the south, but in all my 46 years, I've never seen anything like the number of mosquitoes here. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We made reservations here on the recommendation of a nearby RV dealer, where we were having some work done. When I made the reservation, I specifically asked for a pull thru site and was assured that one was available. When we checked in, the camp host was not very friendly and asked if we really needed a pull thru site. Her husband reluctantly escorted us to a pull thru site. I pulled onto the site and found that it was filled with so many trees that it was impossible to get our awning out. This was important because it was the very purpose of our staying at this campground. We had to replace the awning on our new travel trailer twice, due to a factory defect. The dealer which was over 100 miles from our home, had just installed the second replacement awning and we wanted to try it out before we left the area. We went back to the camp host, who had already seen our predicament, and before we reached their door, the husband yelled out that he wasn't moving us to another site. I explained the whole situation to her, however she very nastily replied that we couldn't move, without giving any explanation. We were only staying one night and there were many pull thru sites available. Since it was getting to be late that evening, I'm sure that these sites were not already reserved. The campground wasn't even half full. So after discussing it with my wife, we decided not to stay. I started trying to maneuver my way out of the site between the tight squeeze of all the trees, while my wife walked back to the camp host to get our money back since we were not going to stay. The camp host was very verbally abusive to my wife and would only refund half of the cash we paid for the one night stay. She literally threw the money at my wife and went inside and slammed her door. I can't really give a better evaluation of the park, since we didn't get to see much of it. However I wouldn't try to stay here again unless I knew for sure they had a different camp host. We camped in a Travel Trailer.
