This lovely, small park is perfect for an overnight stay just off of I-64 exit 150. The campsites are located along the top of a hill with gorgeous views on all sides of the surrounding mountains. Down the hill are pastures with cattle dotting the glen down below. Very serene. Camp host, Russ, was very helpful and informative. The utilities are easy to reach and work well. The wifi is strong. Most sites are level (hard to come by in the mountains). You can see a piece of I-64 coming from behind a hill, and if you sleep with the windows open you can hear the shushing sound of traffic going by. Not loud or intrusive. We will stay here again if we are passing through. A good bet for a stop.

We have stayed at this campground before and knew what to expect. It is off of I-95 and seems to cater to travelers coming off the highway for the night. We have never seen anyone there for an extended stay. The sites are close together, but we've never had anyone next to us for it to matter. The roads are dirt and get muddy when it rains. Our site was level. The utilities were easy to reach and use. The over-air TV reception was fine. This is a good place to stop for the night as long as you don't want frills.

We stayed in the Beach campground which is a narrow spit of land with campsites on it. Our site was on the "creek" side, so we saw the tides come in and recede feet from our front door. It was a great spot for nature watching! We did have a racoon visit our site each evening, so put your food away! The beach is a very, short walk away, and it is absolutely beautiful. Many, many shells on the sand. The campsite was a bit tight for our 30 foot rig. We only attached to electricity, having heeded other reviewers warnings about the water. We really liked this campground. Go to the Nature Center and take the hike to the Coastal Marker from 1850. The signage along the path and the marker itself were fascinating.

We stayed at Fleetwood in March and again in May, both times while we visited a relative in Jacksonville. As other reviewers have stated, the 10 "visitor" spots are all at the front of the park, across a parking area from Route 1. The rest of the park is for long-termers and permanent units. Some of them are run down. That said, the utilities were convenient and easy to use. If you are in 1A - your cable outlet is on your "door" side on the neighbor's utility pole. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The office is closed on weekends, but you can reach a staff member by phone if you need one. There was a mix-up with our site when we arrived on a Sunday, and the manager fixed it right away.

Every campsite at Lazy Days is laid out the same, and this predictability can be found throughout the campground. The streets are wide and the turns gradual. Some turns and roads were made narrow by the cars parked in front of some of the RVs. The pool is lovely in a giant screen room. You get coupons for breakfast and lunch at a cafeteria across the way - the food is OK. You pass new and previously owned RVs to get there and there is a trolley to ferry you between the two places. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed the first time to attend the Lazy Days Drivers Confidence Course. We would recommend the course. We came back a month later to see some friends in Tampa. We needed service on our coach before our second stay and were surprised to find that we had to book service about a month out beyond when we called.

Our positive experience matches those of other reviewers. This park is being transformed into a wonderful park. The new owners and their management team are phenomenal, and have infused the park with energy and enthusiasm. They are welcoming and helpful. The new laundry room is great. Many sites have new cement patios and shrub hedges. The roads are wide and covered with new gravel. When we were there, they were installing 4 trailers that you can rent for a stay in St. Augustine. Everything is clean, clean, clean. And this is just the beginning, they have great plans for more. All of this has been done in only 5 months! If you happen to be there on a Friday, there is a camp fire, and Saturdays live music (which was really quite good) on a stage near the camp fire. Bring your own chair, kick back and enjoy. We requested and received a shaded site under an old oak tree draped in Spanish Moss. If you like sunny sites away from trees, they have those as well. This park is a diamond being polished, and worth a visit. Added bonus - it is only 15 minutes from historic downtown St. Augustine!

We really loved this county-run park. There are 2 campgrounds, one for folks with dogs, and one for the other folks. Our campsite was surrounded in a U with Florida forest. It made us feel really secluded from our neighbors - though we could see them through the greenery. The waterfront campsites are lovely (though we didn't have one). The park has a dog beach on the Tampa Bay shoreline where you can hang out on the beach with your dog off a leash. We saw quite a few families set up with chairs and umbrellas for the day. All the dogs got along well, and owners were really good about controlling their dogs. There is also an enormous fenced dog park. Further along the road, the "people" beach has lovely white sand and looks out on the gorgeous green water of the Gulf of Mexico. The park is very bike friendly, and motorists will actually stop for you as you cross a street (either on foot or bicycle). We also enjoyed a great kayak paddle right off one of the waterfront campsites. The park ranger I spoke with was almost surly, yet the camp hosts were super friendly and helpful. The online reservation system is challenging to use. At the time I made my reservation, it looked like I had booked the last available site in the dog area. Yet, when we were there easily 1/3 of the sites were empty. We loved it here and will definitely camp here again.

We initially camped in a waterfront spot (with the water inches from the back of our rig) for 4 days. We liked Key West and Boyd's so much that we stayed for another 4 days, this time in an "inland" spot for $105 a night. While we were there in mid-April there were lots of inland sites to choose from. Both of our sites had a concrete patio and a nice picnic table. There was a "beach" that was not for swimming that we used for launching our kayaks and swimming our dog. The campground was clean and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The laundry room was very clean and had lots of washers and dryers. The pool was pleasant, with Jimmy Buffet and his type of music piped in. There is a boat ramp and a dock. If you visit the dock, look for the pelicans roosting at night on the mangrove island just across the way. Other guests were friendly. On the weekend, the tent sites filled up but we didn't find it overly loud. The Naval Air Station is on the next Key down, and the jets take off and land all day long. They are very loud, but you get used to them. Key West could not be more convenient - just a few miles away. We will definitely stay here again.

Imagine a huge white gravel parking lot with diagonal hedges in rows. If you are not in one of the 14 waterfront sites, you will be camping on this gravel between these hedges. The waterfront area is well landscaped and lovely. The pool overlooks the Buttonwood Sound. When we were there, both the pool water and the air were 84 degrees, not very refreshing. Our campsite was an end unit where the road turned left in front of us. Because the units were set out on a diagonal, the right side of our site was barely long enough to accommodate our car, while the left was longer than our 30 foot motor home. Knowing now that the park is being closed and turned into condos (or hotel depending on who you talk to), the park has a very temporary look to it. Outside of the waterfront (which is lovely) this is just a lot of gravel. If you are considering this before it closes in September 2016 - get a waterfront site or look someplace else.

We called and got a waterfront site for the next day at this spacious, county-run campground. Near the freeway, this campground is convenient to the entire Palm Beach area - we were visiting relatives in Boca Raton and visiting FAU, both less than 30 minutes away. Our site was waterfront and full service. The utilities were convenient and easy to reach. The campsites were clean. The road was wide enough for our rig, and the campground was quiet while we were there. The lake was lovely to camp by, with a nice breeze. We were directed to John Prince by another campground that only takes dogs less than 20 pounds (we couldn't get our Lab on a diet fast enough).

The campsites are very private with screens of Florida scrub forest in a U around each site. It makes backing in a little crazy, but once you are in, you feel like you are in your own private piece of Florida. Our site was level and had water and electricity. There is a short path down to the Springs. The Manatees that winter there had just left when we were there in early April. So we snorkeled and swam in the 73 degree water. You can snorkel over the spring and look down into the huge broken gash in the earths surface where the water comes out. You can rent floaty tubes and a small locker for your keys. You can also rent snorkel gear, we brought our own.

We arrived on the last day when you need to have reservations, and then stayed for 4 more days. There were about 10 other campers when we were there, so the place really cleared out at the beginning of April. The T (for Trailer) loop has electricity at the sites. You can fill up with water at the bath houses, and there is a dump station. This is NPS, so it is no frills camping. You are at the end of a 38 mile road in the Everglades. Fill up with gas and do your grocery shopping before you come. Flamingo is on the shores of beautiful Florida Bay. The Flamingo marina is just a mile or so away. Bring your bicycles, it helps to get around the Flamingo area. We kayaked in Florida Bay, and did a lot of bird and animal watching. The bugs were bad at dusk on the fringes of the campground near the trees. The campground ranger and camp host were very helpful and friendly. There are vultures everywhere in the Everglades. It was comical to see them sitting on the top of the bathhouse roof in the campground.

We enjoyed this peaceful, little campground so much that we added a 4th night to our stay. The campsites are packed sand and are well shaded. The roads in the campground are paved. Our site was full-service which is unusual for a municipal campground. The campground is right on the Indian River. It has a great view, and you can see the tall parts of the Kennedy Space Center across the way. There is a long fishing pier and a boat launch for canoes, kayaks and small john boats. There is a pool. The folks who work here are welcoming and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely campground with an unfortunate location. The campsites are gravel and level with grass around them. There is a lovely small lake with geese swimming in it. The campground is well-kept, the staff are helpful and very nice. There is an old campground dog who hangs around the office. You can see the campground from I-95, and the access is very easy on and off the highway. However, you can also hear the highway noise all night. That is the unfortunate part. It is pretty noisy.

This is our third stop at this campground. It is very convenient off of I-95. The campground is clean-enough, but not super clean. It is pleasant-enough, but not wonderful. It is fine for an overnight on the road, but not someplace I would choose for a long stay.
