We stayed here about six weeks fro May 1 to mid June. We had a very nice end site (222). At first look the park is not appealing because of the large power facility in front. The older sites referred to at the historic district are narrow and shadeless. The back of the park (I was told by staff) is about five years old. It is very well laid out with mature trees and nice landscaping. Power, water, and cable were excellent. Tengonet wifi was free and probably the fastest Tengonet I've experienced. There are two dog parks which our four dogs enjoyed daily. Showers were clean and large. Clubhouse and pool are excellent facilities. Laundry is also large and well maintained with large screen TV. There is a driving range, horse shoes, shuffleboard, pool table and Foosball. Ball as well as a TV room with huge TV. Interior roads are all well paved and of ample width. All sites have a concrete patio and some have concrete pads while others are gravel. Sites are all very level. It is obvious a lot of planning and work went into the design. Staff was all very friendly and helpful.

We are here as "winter guests" . We arrived January 19 and will leave March 1. Some of the sites are small, but there are also large pull throughs. The roads are narrow and tree lined. I had no trouble negotiating them to our site with a 38 foot RV and toad. They have shower houses, a laundry, community room and General Store. There are bikes for rent. They sell propane and there is free cable and WiFi. The campground is located on the North end of the island in a grove of live oaks and southern pine. We have seen wildlife every day, mostly deer and raccoon. We did spot a gray fox one night in the bird sanctuary. There are paved bike trails all around the island and through the marshes. We watched the dolphins play at the fishing pier nearby. Jekyll Island is an awesome place to visit and the campground staff is phenomenal.

We were able to stay here for my Grandson's graduation from OSUT. The campground is about 30 minutes from Ft Benning events. We stayed in a oversized pull-through site designed as a loop off the main road in National Park fashion. The cable was great. Wi-Fi was a little spotty. My cell reception with AT&T was nonexistent. I had to drive a few miles to make a phone call. Sites had a lot of green space between them and there were deer roaming through them every evening. I paid $11/night with my America the Beautiful pass. If you are in the area and are eligible to stay here I highly recommend it.

Well laid out, level sites with concrete pads. Easy in and out from Rt.19. Nice path for walking dogs around the park perimeter. I would have given it a 10 if the cable had been working.
