Cute little (12-space) RV park across the street from the pier/boardwalk to the beach. Owners are friendly and helpful. The property includes a small pool to relax by, and the upper deck (off the office) with high-top tables for relaxing or socializing. During peak season the office sells hand-dipped ice-cream. There are several places to eat within a mile, as well as Ship & Shore (the main place for groceries or anything else you need). We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Stock-up on groceries before coming to the island. We made supply trips back to Walmart once a month, and picked up anything else we needed at Ship & Shore Supplies. Nearby restaurants include The Islander (next door), a BBQ and Pizza place about a half mile west, JT's Sunset Grill, and several others. The most highly recommended place is Skinner's Seafood (take-out only), where you get to choose your favorite fish/shellfish, sides, and seasonings and everything is made fresh to go.

Very small campground (12 sites) directly across street from beach. Full hookups. Great personnel that were very helpful. Here to slow down for a week on a 6 Month journey. Space adequate for our 28 ft Airstream. Others close by. Full sun. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in camp for 7days. The staff were extremely friendly and most helpful. We enjoyed the feel of a close knit family campground. Good food in the restaurants close by and the food shared by the staff and neighboring campers was delicious. We would definitely recommend Pelican Nest to friends. Didn't need the restrooms since we were equipped in our MH. Thanks for the hospitality. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

They have delicious choice of ice cream. Bloody Mary's on the deck on Sat and Sun. Morning were much appreciated. The live band from the next door restaurant on Sat night was free entertainment, and they ended at 10pm.

The park was small in size but large in hospitality. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. The beach is across the street, but a little bit of a hike for older campers. We will definitely return when passing through again. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Use the Island hopper (bus) to see the island. Enjoy ice cream and the front porch at the store at Pelican Nest. The owners make a great Bloody Mary on Saturday & Sunday mornings to enjoy on the store porch!

This place has the best access to the beach around. It is literally right across the street from the public beach. Everyone was super nice and helpful, we were able to pull directly into our spot from behind so no hassle parking. Had plenty of room for the truck and were able to get in and out easily. Only real downside is space, the sites are close together, and there is no shade, but being this close to the beach outweighed the negatives. We recently stayed at another, nearby campground and preferred this site as it is closer to the beach and restaurants. We will definitely come again!

This was a very friendly spot. Most of the people staying there come every year and stay for months. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Spots are close, but not a problem and the public beach is just across the road. The showers were large but really could have used a good cleaning---not bad, just a little neglected. This was the only criticism we had. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to anyone. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The office and shop provide some shopping, ice cream, and ice. There is a gift shop on one side and a restaurant on the other side. The restaurant was OK but not great. The shop had some unique art work and a good selection of gift or keepsake items.

This was our third year to stay at Pelican Nest and we love it. The family feeling and pet friendly owners make us feel at home. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite, friendly place to stay on a beautiful island. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground located in the middle of everything. The owners are super nice and the location is great. There is a bike path that you can go from one end of the island to the other on. Water, Electric, and sewer were fine and the private bathrooms with huge showers were very nice. They rent bikes and have air available to pump up bike tires. We will definitely return here.

Great restaurant next door, beach across the street. Store called "Ship to Shore" on the main road coming in has everything you need or want.

Don't let the pictures fool you. This "RV Park" has 12 sites crammed into less than 1 acre. Space between sites may not allow awnings. The hosts are friendly and the beach across the street is wonderful. But, in all honesty, this place should be your choice only if you have no other options. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very small mom pop park. Level and utilities including Wifi were okay. Beach is across the two lane city street (about 1,000' to water). Would stay here again. There is a restaurant next door that had live music on Friday night that was a little too loud. Depends what you like. Nice laid back small parking lot campground.

This is a different kind of camping experience, but one we prefer. The small campground is quiet and clean with no bells and whistles, but everything we needed. The older couple that owns the place are native to the island and have lots of interesting stories to share about its history and the affects of hurricanes, one being a positive as the beach is growing tremendously. The two bathroom/shower combinations were very clean. The laundry area is convenient. Level concrete pads. We were at the first site near the road which was easy to get into and convenient. Wi-Fi was good. Cable TV. Full hookups. All this was good. However, the big attraction is the beauty of the island and beach just across a street with little traffic. We loved the beach, almost like having a private island. Our 3 small dogs had a blast running and romping with only a few people at a distance. We stopped in for a night, but hung out longer. I can't figure the previous bad review. It is not a resort area, rather a place to relax away from the hustle bustle. We would definitely return. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

The pictures on the website are a bit deceiving. This park is a parking lot with RV hook-ups. The spots are tight. If you had your awning out, it possibly could touch the RV next to you. On the positive side; the managers were very nice and helpful. You can walk across the street to the beach; however, you do pay a fee. My suggestions for people visiting the island would be to try to get into the other campground first; however, this one does the job if you want to spend all your time on the beach. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure where that last review came from, but our arrival at this park was met by the owner coming outside to greet us, then actually stopping traffic on the road so we could pull out to access our site! This is a small campground with a nice pool and clean laundry room. The bathrooms are individual rooms with clean showers in each. It's just a short walk across the street to the pier and beach for excellent photo ops. We will be here for a week this time, but will definitely be back for a longer stay!

When we arrived we were met by the male owner who was very rude to my wife by not even saying hi to her. When we got to the site I could not use all slides or the outside kitchen. The owner told me I would have to deal with it. We decided to leave and go to another RV park. Don't stay here. I even got charged for the night that we never stayed.
