Appealing place. Clean. Easy hookups to use. Pavers at sites with lawn between. Restaurant looks nice, but it's closed mon and tue, so we haven't been able to eat there. Nice bar on the river. Good value at $45. - ArtD

Park has a marina on a beautiful section of the St. Johns River. Marina has a bar / restaurant. Spacious sites, friendly staff. Somewhat remote area, but the park is modern, and well thought out. We plan on returning. - Field Trip

Quiet, safe, clean and friendly older campground. Road noise as on Route 17. Clean and homey restrooms/showers. 3 outside washers/dryers - all working. Cable TV and WIFI were pretty bad. Site was very long but quite narrow. Small pool by the road I didn't use. Staff upon check-in didn't provide any information and couldn't use credit card machine. But other than that all staff friendly. Campers/residents friendly. Mix of older travel trailers and permanent residents. Thought $38 a night (incl. tax) was a bit pricey for this basic campground. - CatM

I figured I'd give this place an updated review. It's an odd mix of tents, trailers, RVs and a couple of permanent mobile homes. Obviously some long term folk and snow birds. Most people are friendly. Quiet location except for some noise from highway 17. Nice hosts, even provide trash bags. Laundry facilities available. Bathrooms dated but clean. Price reflects a PA discount. We would have liked a picnic table at our site, but it was okay. Wifi decent but iffy at times and probably has a terrible signal further from the office. - MSSW

My poor rating is because of the very poor condition of the office and bathrooms. We have been here for a month & the bathrooms have not been cleaned one time. One soap dispenser has been empty, one towel dispenser does not work, TP dispensers are broke, walls are filthy. The only thing they do is empty the trash cans. Most campgrounds we have been to clean the bathrooms every day. - jlh1

We stayed in a 42' motorhome on site 20 and were able to park and stay connected to our 20' trailer. Water is hard and water pressure variable, but tends to be low in the mornings. This is a beautiful camping area with amazing wildlife. Can launch your kayak from your campsite. - Sunny Weathers

Stayed here with friends for 4 days. This is a county fish camp on a nice size lake with boat ramp, restaurant and small store. Roads are narrow but paved leading to camp. The campground is small with all full hook-up back-in sites with level concrete pads, picnic tables and fire rings. We saw lots of birds and took our kayak on the lake. There is limited tv, fair cell signal, the water pressure was low and the water is very hard. The campground is near farm land and a distance from beaches and grocery though a big dollar store is the closest. We really liked the restaurant as the food was good, the staff friendly and they have a happy hour for beer. This really is just a fish camp but we enjoyed our stay. - mohocamper

This is a small fishing camp. Fine for a 1-2 day stop, if just traveling. Full hookup is nice. Level, concrete pads. Sites are close together with no vegetation separating them. Bathhouse is just OK. Handicap shower was really the only truly decent one to use and it was not exactly clean. Camp is a good 10-15 min out of town and from beach. Restaurant is only good for breakfast (cheap!) and maybe a burger. Ranger is there for about 30 min a day. Just runs in and out. The lake is beautiful and the sunsets are great. We had river otters playing behind our site one night. Would not feel comfortable as a solo female at this park. Mainly due to lack of camp host and bar on grounds. - jdzs94

This is a customer oriented family & seniors campground on the St. John's River at Big Lake George. There's a dock and boat slips, etc; we were here for location but enjoyed fishing from the dock. They provide all marina services. - Viewers

Very few RV spots and they could be difficult to get into as road is narrow. Seemed to be a lot of either full timers or people that keep their sites for weekends/summer. We were there for 3 nights during the week. It was quiet and all of the residents were nice. Friday afternoon lots of people came in for the weekend. Pool was great! They also had boat docks and boats for rent. Restrooms were clean and showers appeared to be new. Office did have some supplies like ice, beer and maybe wine and a few t-shirts/hats, etc. The only complaint we would have is that we were very close to the entrance road and people would come through and stir up dust. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will probably be back. But, if you are coming for lots to do, this isn't the place unless you fish, kayak or just want to relax, which is what we like. - Lindaosm

This place is an enigma. When we arrived on Saturday, the office was closed. We had reservations, so we found our site, the only empty one here. It was a bit rough and unlevel, but it worked. None of the help was around until we got settled. They were surprised that ANY site was open... the owner included. It's very quiet with a nice pool. It's about an hour's drive into St. Augustine, the reason we were here. Folks, as in Florida in general, are very friendly. Not much to see in the town and no hiking trails nearby, but we liked it. - Red Wolf Deux

Spent the weekend about an hour a little south of Jacksonville in a town named Welaka. It has 1 stop light and 1 gas station with a few places to eat. It looks like it is a town of about 500 or so folks. I went there for some fishing in and around the St Johns River. I stayed a little campground lodge by the name of Welaka Lodge and Resort. There are 4 nice looking cabins for rent, there are about 5 RV sites that do not have RV’s parked in them, some are work campers, there is a nice small swimming pool, and on Sundays they have a big party at the dock. Friday and Saturday evening most folks head to a place called “Shrimp R Us” that has live bands and some good food and drink. It is an easy walk from the campground. The owners of the campground are friendly and stay busy keeping the place up. There is no cable or TV reception so plan ahead if you go there. There is no late night parting that I seen as everyone disappeared at about 730PM each night and were not seen again until mid-morning. There are 2 cons about staying there besides the cable; the first is the “BLIND BUGS” 500 millions of them per square yard and they land on everything, get into everything and are a real pain to even walk through. They get side the camper faster than you can open and close the door and you spend along time killing them, really nasty tiny bugs. The second is you cannot launch your boat or kayak for the lodge; yes, they have a nice dock, but no boat ramps. Next door is a fishing camp that has a ramp but ….also has 100 million of the “BLIND BUGS” that make it impossible to even put the boat/kayak in the water as they get in your ears, eyes and mouth and all over everything including you and anything you have, to include getting in your vehicle. There is a public boat ramp down the street about 2 blocks (they only have about 5 million bugs there) that is one of the steepest I have ever seen about 60 degrees and 150 yards long. Then you have to find a place to park up on top the hill. There was 1 bait shop in town but it has gone under so bring your own bait or use artificial lures. The shrimp was running in that part of the river so the fishing was really slow I talked to no one that had caught anything the whole week. The fish were so full of free shrimp that they couldn’t move. In the evening the wind comes blowing through with such force that even using a 3 spike anchor you still drift. Would I go to Welaka for a weekend or fishing again? I cannot think of any reason to return. - jaxfl

First, this is not a destination park. We chose this park mainly to be near family and because all of the parks in St. Augustine were full or out of our price range. Very reasonably priced at $420 a month which includes electricity. There are very few amenities and only one or two activities the whole time we were there. Very low water pressure. Most of the residents live in the park full-time but for the most part everyone takes care of their site. Management folks are very nice and accommodating who will go out of their way to help you anyway they can. There are restrooms but we never used them. That didn't bother us as we always use our own facilities anyway. The park is right on the St. Johns River so even though we got temperatures in the area fell below freezing a few nights, we never had a problem with hoses or pipes freezing. Since we were parked under a large tree we had acorns, leaves and small limbs falling on the roof and slide awnings which we had to clean off every couple of weeks. The roads are dirt both coming in and inside the park so there was dust when folks drove fast. All parking sites are on dirt/grass as well. In addition to cable TV, the park has the best WiFi signal we have ever seen in an RV park. The owner has nine repeaters located throughout the park that provides the strong signal. We were able to get a DTV signal with our roof-mounted dish in Site 17 but not all sites provide as clear shot to the southern sky. Our Verizon cell phones had 4 bars of LTE signals. The owner likes to get folks to stay for several months. If you are traveling through the area that could present a problem. - StarlifterFE

Um, an "adventure." Roads into/out of here are really awful, especially in a rainstorm. Sites are bare ground--no gravel, no pavement. Staff was friendly enough, but we didn't receive any printed campground info, so we don't know what all is available and it's pouring and sort of scary outside, so we're not exploring much. The plus side is that it's less than 1/2 mile from where we're getting service on our Sprinter chassis at the nearby Dodge dealership in the morning. That's why we're here. We're planning to leave in the morning by the entrance, since the exit road looked impassable to us. (Pickup trucks could do it, but not our little Class C--too many ruts!) It is pretty quiet here, except for the mosquitoes buzzing. - JCLC

very good. nice sites, quite a few are reservable, we drove in early and got an open one. have a part of the lake for swimming in warm water and at the same time swim with the manatees. they were there every day, rented a kayak, paddled out and let them swim to you! good gator watching, fishing and a lot of different birding. - yosemitesam

We have camped here many times before. We came across a private owner on craigslist renting their lot cheaper than the official resort was. I was a little worried that the park had gone down hill because of some negative reviews on here but we had no problems. There was $5 fee for our car and golf cart at the gate but we were told up front so no problem. They have added a large dog park since we were here last. We normally spend one full day at the springs, but once you have done that the state parks have nothing else to offer. Love staying here because we have constant access to the lake and pools. We dropped our boat in the lake on Sunday and didn't put it back on the trailer until we left on Friday. Stayed anchored on the beach and were able to jump in and go whenever we wanted. The bathrooms are not fancy but they were very clean. We used them every night instead of bothering with our tiny camper shower. At first I was disappointed the site was not closer to the water, but our site in the back of the park was very shady and quiet and we didn't have to worry about through-traffic while the kids were out playing. Plus the lot was long enough that we were able to leave the truck hooked up to our 30 ft trailer and still park the bikes and golf cart in the back. We plan to book same site next year. - FloridaRVfamily

This older park is considered a private, condominium community, that is open to the public. It has many owners and long-term renters. A $5 cash fee for non-owners is charged at the gate. We rented a site through the Elite Resort Management company by phone. They do have an office just outside the park. The sales person was very helpful and made sure we knew there would be no cable television due to the cable company digital conversion process. We use a Verizon MiFi and had okay service for the cell phone and internet. Internet was available in the Lodge. Everyone we met was very friendly. The family pool was closed, but the other pool and hot tub were being used quite a bit. A book and puzzle exchange is located in the Lodge. Our pull-through site (#3) was long and wide enough so the Jeep could be parked next to the coach. We did have to position the car and the picnic table to stop golf carts and people from walking through the site. Have to admit, it didn't stop all the walkers! Electricity, water, and sewer were all in good condition. - DiplomatTraveler

This is our second time camping at Salt Springs Recreation Area. This year I was able to use my Senior Pass, which gave a good discount on camping fees. Our rig was 40' long + a long bed dually truck and we barely fit in Site 15 even with the back end of our fifth wheel hanging way off the concrete pad. We parked the truck sideways and one wheel was a little on the grass, which is not allowed, but no one came by and fussed at us. We love this campground, but wish that AT&T got service here. We were here for a total of two weeks and we had to drive quite a way down the road to get any signal at all. The campground is working on getting wifi installed. It worked one afternoon for about half an hour, then never came back up. I imagine it will take awhile to work all the bugs out, but will be so much nicer than having to drag the computer up to the office to get wifi. The staff were always very nice and friendly, especially one lady!
We were here for a geocaching event and stayed for the huge numbers of geocaches available in the forest that kept us busy for the whole time. We did drive over to the springs, but it was chilly and we didn't swim. We wanted to extend our stay, but our site was reserved, so we moved to site 98 in the walk-up section. Really like this area better, site was bigger and there is a huge grassy area between the backs of your camper and the ones across from you. The only downside to this site was that you had to back your rig up an incline. There are a lot of limbs hanging over the roads. Wish the crew would cut some of them to prevent scraping the taller rigs. We will be back again soon! - LZee11

The staff was friendly and helpful from the moment we drove in. You can walk into the office where there is a sitting area usually used for anyone needing the free WiFi access because it's rare you get any signal once you pass that point, you will however get a ton of TV stations. They also have ice and a few things you might need for the camper. The spaces are very nice and clean when you arrive, they're concrete with "FULL HOOKUP" (Yay!!!). It was quiet both day and at night but there's nothing that divides you from the neighbors it's completely open but we didn't have a problem with it. If you have overnight quests that are unable to park in your area there's an overflow parking area within walking distance of the sites. The springs are really nice (drive there though), there is a roped off area for swimming that doesn't allow alcohol although if you go to the other side of the rope there are usually boats and people hanging out in tubes, canoes and kayaks playing music and socializing..that's where you can drink if you so desire. If you come out of the park and turn left about a 1/4 of a mile (maybe not even that far) on the left there's boat, kayak and canoe rentals and you can get to the springs from there to. You can also launch your boat from there with access to Lake George. There's a gas station, a small grocery store and a large ice machine nearby. Not a lot of shopping or restaurants but that's a good thing sometimes. Enjoy your time there, we did! - 2Austins

Spacious sites, quiet, very nice campers. Full hook ups, the only con would be poor wi-fi. The springs were nice. - Lyn Hirons

Was referred here by a friend, will never stay at this park again.
Checked in on a Friday afternoon, nobody in the office for check in, and it was only noon. Found a nice somewhat level spot and set my trailer up. Neighbors are mostly permanent and living there full time, everybody was friendly, waved as we pulled in.
Park amenities,bathrooms were sub par and dirty, showers were dirty and you could see through the doors, lots of tents in the front of the roads, disheveled looking campsites, lots of tarps and junk at those sites.
Kids as young as 5 running around unsupervised.
On Sat went to the office to see about paying and find out what there was to do in the area.
The lady in the office was very rude as she spoke to me and my wife, told us the price for us to stay for a week, was more then I was quoted over the phone(almost like a bait and switch at the last minute). Asked about the difference in what I was quoted,and was told I was wrong. Proceeded to ask about what there was to to in he area, and she kind of brushed us off, an with a slight attitude was told about the beach and not much more,
There was a bar/restaurant called the Black Cloud, heard the food was really good but was told that it was not open.
The campsite was good, dry, it rained a little but no standing water. The roads are very narrow,uneven but no mud at least.
Had a nice stay in the area.
I won't go back there due to the so called management,asked who the owner was and was told he was away on vacation and could not be reached.
The woman was very rude,very nosy as well (would ride around on a golf cart and just looked at campsites with a angry look on her face).
I feel the owner needs to take more of a hands on approach,and possibly replace some of the management staff with some more friendlier people.
If you plan on staying here,get used to the sound of motorcycles on the weekend nonstop due to the track that's behind the campground. - Longrider

This is a large muddy field with mostly permanent residents, and many noisy motorcycles. I didn't feel very safe at this campground which is unusual for me. Florida had a rainy winter and ground was soft and muddy everywhere. It didn't rain while we were here. Very tight spaces on 3 sides. Zero privacy. Little rowdy at night, but it was a weekend. - IowaGirl

There is a motocross park next door that is busy on the weekends. We did not notice any excess noise from them as another stated. The roads are dirt and narrow, but in good shape. The spots were grass, but level. We had a lot of rain the weekend we were there and did not see any standing water. The bathhouse/showers are old but clean. The lady that checked us in was pleasant. The spaces were a bit narrow and with a narrow road it could cause someone with a big rig to have an issue backing in. We were OK with our 34' coach. We were there over New Years eve and were afraid there would be a lot of noise with the bar/restaurant at the entrance, but it was a quiet peaceful evening. Most of the units were old permanent ones that gave the park a "red neck" feel, but every one was friendly or just stuck to themselves. We will stay again next time we are in the area. - esta34950
