Date of Stay: February, 2015
We stayed here for 4 nights and are already planning on returning later in the spring. The sites are large, and easy to back into. The walkway to the beach was very well made, takes you through some marsh and over the dunes. Lot of birds and wild life to observe and very good trails that were well marked.

Although we only stayed overnight, we were very impressed. Staff was excellent and friendly, and our pull through site was large, level and well kept. Good cable & wifi. What more can you ask for?
Date of Stay: September, 2014
We have stayed here several times in the past, and every time we are here, there has been improvements made. They now have an excellent WiFi system that is much improved from the previous. Oak Plantation is always clean and the staff is very consistant with regards to being helpful and friendly. My only negative is the many speed bumps on the long main drive. I understand them, I just don't like them. We will definitely be back.

We had stayed here a couple of years ago, and if anything, the place got better. The cable TV was clear and steady, and the WiFi is excellent. Everything is very clean, well kept, and the staff is most helpful. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because some of the turns are pretty tight for a larger unit due to the trees. We will definitely go back, as we love Jekyll Island.

When we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly and efficient staff that had our registration all set up and waiting for us. In just a couple of minutes, we were escorted to our site. The park roads are gravel, but are well maintained and smooth. Our pull through site was level, and quite roomy, so getting in and set up was easy. The entire park appeared to be well kept, and laid out so there were no challenging turns, etc. The only negative was that the Wi-Fi was somewhat spotty, but that may have been the result of a lot of rainy weather. All in all, it was a good experience and we would certainly stay there again if we get back to that area.

We stayed two weeks, the maximum, at this camp ground and truly enjoyed it. Virtually all sites are right on Lake Hartwell, and if you have a boat or a jet ski, you can pull right up to your site. The sites are spacious and well appointed. The only negatives were that there were no sewer hookups, and TV reception was non-existent. We stayed near the swimming area as our grandchildren were here, and it was clean and smooth with a small playground near by. We will stay here again and enjoy a beautiful lake.

This was the 2nd time at Flamingo lakes, and again found it very enjoyable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A staff member always leads you to your site and acts as a spotter while you park. This is always appreciated, especially in a back-in sites. It is very family friendly, with beaches on the lake for swimming, and playgrounds for the kids. The park is clean and well kept, and although there are some long term RV's, all look good. WiFi reception was very good, which can be kind of rare. The only negative is the some of the turns on the streets are pretty tight for a 36 ft. 5th wheel.

This is a large campground, that is broken into various sections. The front section, where we stayed, appears to be for short timers either just passing through for the night or for just a few days. There is a row of back-ins along the small lake that are more permanent, but are well kept. There is also a section in the back of the park for long term campers that is pretty run down. Fortunately, it is the farthest from the front because it is quite an eyesore. There are lots of trees throughout and the sites, although not paved, are long and fairly wide. The front part was clean and appeared to be well kept. We will stay here again if in the area, but will always request the front section when making reservations

We have stayed here multiple times, and always enjoy it. It is always neat and clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The park has always been orderly and quiet whenever we have stayed there. The negatives are: 1) no cable, 2) very poor Wi-Fi. The main entrance road to the sites is long and straight with several severe speed bumps to keep traffic to 10 MPH. If you are going in & out often, this can be pretty annoying. Overall, a good place and we will stay here again.

This is truly a great campground. There are large sites and lots of trees so you don't feel your neighbors are on top of you. Also, the sites are at various angles, so there is not a feeling of lining up in formation. If you enjoy a natural setting, this park is ideal with lots of wildlife and their own bird sanctuary. There were a few minor negatives. The staff in the office were quite young, and not overly attentive. It could be a need for better training. Also, we had some trouble with the TV cable, but the cable company got out here and got things back online. As stated, the negatives were minor. We definitely look forward to getting back to the beautiful island and a great campground.

This was our second stay here, and if you like the beach, it is a good park. We stayed on the off side of the front row, and because there were many open sites on beach front, we had a beautiful unobstructed view of the Gulf. The park itself has many amenities and their staff is most helpful and friendly. There are some negatives, however. The closer you get to the beach, the smaller the sites. It was a real challenge to back in my 5th wheel, even with a spotter. Also, the pricing is very high even in off season. Wi-Fi was spotty at best. All that said, location is ideal and we will most likely go back.
Date of Stay: January, 2012
OK for overnight. The park was very quiet, with clean well kept grounds. The park is a mixture of mobile homes and long term RV's with few amenities. Some of the sites were very cluttered with lots junk lying around. The sites are primarily grass, although some did have concrete patios. Ours did not so we were constantly tracking grass into our RV, as they do not allow patio rugs or mats. We could not get the Wi-Fi to work while we were there and the person at the office said people had been complaining about it.
Date of Stay: October, 2011
This is a great place. All sites appear to be level, and our gravel based site was smooth and clean. The entire park is clean and very well maintained. The staff was friendly and most helpful with questions. Even though we use the facilities in our RV, I usually check out the parks restrooms. The ones here were all tile and were very clean and fresh. They do not have cable TV (a 1 point deduction) and their Wi-Fi was weak and slow.(Another point deduction). The park is convenient to down town Charleston, but traffic on US 17 can be really busy. However, we will definitely stay here again.

The park is very clean with lots of amenities. The sites are pretty level, and spacious. The staff, mostly work campers, were all friendly and very helpful. We were escorted to our site and even with a pull through, we were helped getting lined up on the site. Each site had a picnic table and a fire bowl which was cleaned out daily. My only issue was the size of the lake. On the internet, it looks much larger than it really is. It is actually more of a small pond. Not a deal breaker, but a disappointment. We will definitely stay there again.
Date of Stay: August, 2011
We stayed here for two weeks while visiting family in the area. The RV portion is fairly new and nice and clean. All sites are concrete and level. The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the sites are pretty narrow. If there are RVs on both sides of you it would feel quite crowded. The bathrooms are in the club house of the golf course, so not really convenient for the RV park. This resort appears to be a golf course first and RV park second. For our needs it was fine, and we will plan on staying there again if we take our RV to the region in the future.
