This Alabama State Park has a much to offer; biking, hiking, large pool, golf, gulf fishing pier, beautiful beaches and more. It is a BIG park with spacious level sites. Interior roads and sites are paved. Each site has a large (20x20) paved patio, ample room for parking and full hookups. No cable or wifi. The park get used heavily year round but is well maintained. It does not have a "new" look but you can see the staff's pride of ownership in it's condition. A job very well done for a park this size and used so much. The hurricanes have taken a toll here, so don't expect shady sites.

The sites are on the small side and very close together. The power hook up for our neighbors site was on our patio. Most of the park is covered by tall pines and old oak trees. The island itself is very nice with some modern conveniences while maintaining that old Florida village feel. Don't forget you are on an island so come prepared to chill out and relax or drive 50 miles for some enterainment. We would stay here again.

This park has a nice layout with a beautiful view of Mobile bay. Sunsets are impressive. Very convenient to shopping, fishing and area attractions. Nice paved interior roads. The sites are huge and with paved pads and patios. I don't know why but the overall condition was poor. It looks as if there has been zero maintenance for some time. Pine cones and straw was everywhere and the grass needs cutting. The showers were awful. Dirty floors and walls and a moldy curtains. This place has great potential but need lots of help.

Nice park locate close to New Orleans. Park entrance/check in office has been been remodeled and is very nice. Traffic flow at the entrance is a little confusing to the first time visitor. Just follow the signs and you will be OK. Be aware of the "Speed Tables". Even at a crawl, I bottomed the hitch shank. Camp sites are large, comfortable, clean and, for the most part private. There is some traffic noise but you get the feel of being out of the city. After-hours access is awkward but not a big deal. I would suggest you familiarize yourself with its location during the daylight hours however. It's can be a challenge to find at night. Overall rating would be higher if sites had sewer connection.

Nice overnight stay campground. Interior roads are dirt and there is no pool. About half of the sites were occupied by long term campers but that is not a problem. There about half a dozen sites with large concrete pads (~20X40 foot) for overnight folks that are located close to the office/bath house. Showers are huge and very clean. We would stay here again. Call host once off interstate and someone will meet you at park entrance. Doing so will save riding around park to get to your parking spot.

The campground at JICP is only one small part of a wonderful facility. We have camped here twice in the past 3 years and will return again. All the attractions for Charleston are less than 4 miles away. Now for the not so pretty side. The traffic between the campground and Charleston can be brutal. Rush hours are a nightmare. Try to plan your arrival before 2 or 3 PM if possible. Store is well stocked and bathhouses are clean but dated. The gravel sites are are heavily wooded and spacious and most drain well. If you like to bike or walk on paved trails this is the place. This is a very well managed very well cared for facility.

Very well maintained and managed campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites are a little small but adequate.

This park is only 5 years old, looks very good and is convenient to St. Simon and Jeckle Islands. The park layout, landscaping, sites and facilities reflect a modern well thought out design. The paved interior roads and concrete pads are unblemished and level. Manicured grass covers everything that is not asphalt or concrete. The majority of the sites are long pull throughs. Traffic noise from I-95 is noticeable only if outside but still not annoying. Finding the place can be challenging because there are, as of this writing, NO signs announcing it's location. Cable is analog with limited channel. Wifi access is good but very slow. We would stay here again.

This is a older campground but is still in good shape. The roads are gravel as are the sites. It is a clean and neat, but bare bones facility. No pool or fitness facility but it is a fair place to stay while seeing the sights of St. Augustine.

What can you say it's the Great Outdoors. It's a wonderful place to stay. The space coast is near by and there are lot of attractions for day trips. The facilities, pool, hot tubs, showers, fitness rooms, restrooms are all first class. The rate reflects a buy 2 nights get 1 free special.

Nice clean park. Mostly park homes and snowbirds. Staff is very friendly and pleasant. Our site, #4, was adequate for a 3 or 4 night stay. We would stay there again.

Very good park located in sleeply little Florida fishing town. Not much to do but the atmosphere is laid back. Sites are a little small, clean, and neat. Water pressure was very low, also. Fisherman's Wife restaurant was very good. Try it out.

This campground shares it's entrance and interior roads with a water park. Campground rules are influenced by this also. Like no bike riding. We stayed here in October when the water park was closed. The campground was quiet, relaxing and has a great view of the lake. The sites are a comfortable size with standard hook ups. Firerings and tables are also provided. Site 11 had a rusty water problem and many trees needing dead limbs removed. Interior roads are rough and need repair. The "speed bumps" (I assume required for the waterpark customers) are annoying, to say the least.

This campground was hit hard by a tornado several years ago. Many of the trees were lost, therefore most of this large campground is "rebuilding". Many trees have been planted, new fire rings and bathhouses. The interior roads are only fair and the sites are gravel and uneven. Most or the electrical looks new and the Wi-Fi very good. I would rate it higher if the sites were in better shape. The golf course is great and if you like to fish . . . this is the place.

Very nice park with good interior roads. The sites are level and well maintained. It is quiet, neatly kept with a friendly staff. WiFi coverage is spotty. Park location is handy to the attractions in Pigeon Forge. We will stay here again.
