21 Parks near East Palatka, Florida
Jun 2016 - $30.00
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

When we checked in, we were charged an extra $10.00 for our own golf cart AND our tow vehicle! We were not told about these charges when we made our reservations and no one could explain why we were being charged extra for the vehicle that got us here. My in-laws drove a motor home in and they were charged extra as well. (No additional vehicle). There was no Wi-Fi available, even at the lodge we tried to connect and where unsuccessful. Cell phone service was non-existant. The staff was NOT friendly at all and extremely rude when we "broke a law." There was no mini-golf as they bulldozed that. No dog run and the dog beach is a 4 foot area with a large pipe in the water that our dog cut her paw on trying to swim. The dock they show kids jumping off of, is now old and rickety. Some sites were VERY small and tight. Couldn't put up our awning all the way. On the positive side, there is lots of shade and large oak trees. Family pool was nice and would have a beautiful view of the lake if it didn't have the large wooden privacy fence all the way around. Many live ins, the exterior of the cabins looked cute. We won't return as the staff and their "HOA police" were enough to frustrate our family! - highmaintenancecamper

We camped here 5/15 thru 5/26. The park is clean and is well maintained. There is WIFI at the office and the staff is always nice. There is not a lot to do here but camp,swim in the spring,and fish in the lake outside of the spring. No fishing in the spring which is good with swimmers in it most of the time in warm weather. The springs have a wall built around it on three sides like a swimming pool with no diving off of the wall.
Take your supplies with you as it is about 19 miles to a Walmart if you go north on Hiway 19. There is a dollar store about a mile of the entrance for milk, bread, and packaged foods. A good place to camp for a quite week except for the weekends when the campground is full.
All sites are paved with full hook up in the RV part.There are tent sites
also at a lower rate.but no power. - Wink

A very rare NFS campground with full hook-ups! The sites were open with some shade trees. About half the sites are reservable (2 week max) and the rest are walk-ups. Laundry facilities were closeby (about a block away) as was a local cafe with good breakfasts and lunches. Big grocery shopping was about 30 mile away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We definitely plan to return. - Snowbirds34

This is the only campground in the Ocala National Forest that has full hookups (water, electricity, sewer). It's a great place to see manatees, do a little hiking, boating, and biking. We did some kayaking and got very close to the manatees. Be aware though, there is little (or no) cell coverage! There's some small coverage from Verizon, none from ATT. There is wifi at the registration area. with many campers use. Campsites were spacious, level asphalt and there is a primitive area for, mostly, tents. The campground is run by a private concern. - RonMill

We're big fans of Florida State Parks in general, this park is similar to many we have stayed in and been happy with so far. Great location to get away to nature, and still close enough to civilization to keep up with creature comforts. - avbrendan

Small campground in the woods on Pellicer creek. Great place if you enjoy nature, kayaking, and wildlife. Not so much if you require amenities. Spacious, private sites. The dirt road entrance was a few miles long, but we found the road to be well maintained with very few holes or dips. Great place for kayaking. Campground is 15 minutes to beach. You can access groceries store in Palm Coast or north in St. Augustine. Very friendly camp hosts who sell ice and firewood. - retrocat

If you are looking for a very private campground, this is it. Dirt road begins at entrance and has a lot of dips. There are places where trees are close to the road, difficult to navigate with 30' trailer. Not a lot to do in the park, had a playground, water access, wide sites. About 5 minutes from I95. No store, not very many trails, bathrooms were old, but were clean. This was not what I have come to expect from a state park in Florida. We have stayed at approximately 10-15 parks in Florida and this is not one I will go back to. It is close to St. Augustine, which is a great place to walk through the historic district. TV reception was very bad, cell service was on and off. - Cairo Camper

The park continues to excel and improve. This is our 3rd stay and we have not been disappointed. Our site was ready, clean, level, and comfortable.
They have now added some basic supplies in the office, creating a small store; prices were reasonable. The conditions in the showers/restrooms continue to be maintained. They are clean, air conditioned, and water pressure is good too. We stayed the weekend over Memorial Day and they had live music at the stage both Saturday and Sunday night.
We were told that improvements coming are a pool, activities center and planned activities during the winter months. They have also added 4 Vintage brand travel trailers that are used as rentals for anyone that wants to try the camper experience. These are brand new and they have maid service, not too shabby. The rates may be higher then other parks but we enjoy the benefits and quality that they provide. We have already booked for Labor day weekend. - Chrislorl

Very clean, with new laundry facilities, new dog park, family & pet friendly. Very easy to find. There is also a shuttle from one of the trolleys to attrations in St. Augustine right from the park. Live music around campfire on the weekend while we were there. Catch and release fishing available in the lake. Cute Vintage RV's available to rent at very reasonable rates. Can't wait to go back. - Ljack1

Nice park, new owners working hard to upgrade things. Pad was hard gravel and pretty level. New concert patio area. WiFi work fine. The staff was very helpful in booking tours for the area and or places to see and eat. Puppy play area was nice. Park was clean and little dusty from the gravel roads but plenty of room to make those wide turns. Water/power were good. Nice outdoor music on fire on Sat. Will return! - Chef40

Best thing about this park was leaving. Discovered after we came back from dinner that the power had low voltage (our EMS was shutting down to prevent damage). Several attempts to get someone from the park to fix were not successful. Switched to a 30amp plug and had the same result. Bottom line is we spent two nights with no AC and significant interruption in our power supply. Park did not resolve the issue and offered nothing for the inconvenience (offered excuses for why the voltage was low - campground was full and they thought our EMS was causing the problem). Pull-thru site was long & level with all utilities within easy reach. Add to all this it was a holiday weekend and the park was full of people having a good time into all hours of the night. Lesson learned about this KOA - we will not be back. - Dave Hole

Easy access with level sites. Low water pressure at site and in showers. Wifi was poor. Laundry was good. Showers were dirty with mold on faucets. Had pool but didn't use because seen ducks swimming in pool. Dog park was good. Convenient to visit local beaches and St Augustine. No problem with our satellite. - Fulltimersrv

We enjoyed our time here. It was quiet and relaxing which was surprising during Daytona 500 week. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The sites are older, but we had no problems getting in or leveling. We enjoyed the view outside our back window of the small lake.
Close to shopping and local tourist spots. We could walk or ride bikes to the beach which was less than 1 mile away.
All utilities worked fine and every request was promptly taken care of. The entry is a little tight, but we didnt have a problem.
Would return again. - Tumblewood

The park was booked, but we were allowed to park in 'Overflow' which simply meant we were able to park in the beach parking lot with no hookups. It turned out there were cancellations so we could have moved to a spot, but we were so cozy where we were, and essentially had the whole end of the park by the beach to ourselves for the night. We toured through the campsites, each one was more beautiful than the next. You would hardly know if the campsite next to you was occupied. Live Oaks, Spanish Moss... Gorgeous! I will be back for sure. The rangers were amazingly nice and accommodating, and the facilities were impeccable. Bring the bikes. Enjoy! Don't shy away from Overflow. - BobW

Fee of $28/night, but reservation fee of $6.75. South of St. Augustine with a mile long entry paved road with brush both sides, and a walking/bike path along side, a windsurfing pavilion and a kayak/canoe rental, and a fish cleaning area. Road comes to a large parking area with two nice boardwalks to the wide sandy beach. Some slow WiFi by the parking area.The large wooded CG is to the right of the entry to the beach and has 7 paved loops along a long paved road. Bring a bike for it is long distances to walk. The best loop for RV is the first Coquina loop, as these sites were more level and more uniformly wider. All sites EW and dirt surface. Biking along the other loops I saw very variable sites; many very unlevel, narrow, overhanging limbs, etc., so a RV may or not get an appropriate site for its size. There is thick brush between the ends of the loops and the Salt Run that's by the entry road, so to get to the beach its a long way to walk to the beach area. There is a dump at the entry to the CG with 3 wide parallel dumps. - 210jem

We were here for one month and have stayed at this park three different years. It seems the owner is just letting the park go. There has been no improvements that I see. There was a sewer station about thirty feet from out site that they had been working on and would open the lid everyday and then leave open , after me and our neighbor complained many times they started to close it for a few days then back to normal so we started closing it ourselves. Will not stay here again. - roger a

We stayed here for a week. The rate cited is based on the weekly rate. This is an overpriced place, period. It is a very crowded, mostly seasonal resident place. This is not a resort, it is a mobile home park with some RV sites. When we arrived we asked about any available pull-through sites, which we were told there were none. The site we were given was on a bend, with seasonal trailers on both sides and across from which made it very difficult to back into. We had to get people on one side and across from us to move vehicles in order for us to get in. Hookups were satisfactory, but that was about it. During our stay we saw several pull-through sites that had not been occupied the entire time of our stay. Not a place we would recommend staying. St Augustine itself is beautiful and the park was a short drive to downtown, but we would not stay there again. - pfogleboch

Loved it here. Came with a camping club of 17 coaches. Original scheduled stay was for 4 nights. Ended up staying 11 nights. I especially liked the boat ramp and fishing pier. The clubhouse and pavilion were excellent. I will definitely return here and ask for site G100 or J123. - w4phj

This is not an RV Resort as the name in entails; it is a cabin/trailer rental and sales. There is only a few what they call RV sites. We were in one of the two that was together when we stayed and it was a yard with hookups, no pavement or anything except a very small patio and picnic bench. We had a really hard time getting in the space and out of it because of the closeness of all the trailers (park trailers with porches and driveways). All the park trailers had porches, decks and screened rooms which take up all the real estate. There was a pool but too cold to use it.
The office personnel were friendly.
I really have nothing nice to say about this place unless you are renting or buying a park trailer and you better like your neighbors because you are really close to them. - yomamadog

Very nice park - even had some shade. Sites are gravel/grassy but very level. There are a few drainage dips but did not cause any problems and my tow car is really low to the ground. Staff was very nice. Sites were close but not uncomfortably so. It was very convenient as the campground is on the road that takes you into St. Augustine. - IntrepidCampers

Very nice RV Park. Wide and long sites, grass/ gravel surface. We were in site 23. Full hook-ups all worked well. There are drainage ruts alongside the roads that are annoying, but not too deep. Most roads were gravel, not paved, which I would have preferred. It was a good location for touring St. Augustine. Staff was very nice. - SNL

This park has a nice vibe. It is quiet and peaceful in spite of the proximity of I-75.
WI-FI was OK but I needed to use my booster to get a consistent connection even though we were fairly close to the antenna. Cable TV was OK although SD which seems to be the norm for most RV parks.
Our site was mainly gravel/sand/dirt. Not sure how enjoyable it would be if heavy rain were to fall. The site is long enough, but the hook-ups are so close to the back of the site that you can't keep your tow behind your rig.
Rates are a bit on the high side, but this is a tourist town so it's not unexpected.
I would camp here again. - w3sjkb3aam

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

Overall it is a quiet park with mainly permanent campers. There is a motocross park next door, that can be a little noisy on the weekends. There is a large bar/restaurant as part of the campground, the food is great. People come from all over the area for the Fridays all you eat fish dinner and etc...The entertainment is really good with the Palm Coast Swing Band and others performing weekly. What appears to be a "Biker" bar and campground is truly now designed for a older crowd. The owner is very hands on, and keeps most everything up nicely. The staff is friendly, and try to accommodate the campers. Access to the park is not bad if you are heading south on hwy 1. If you are coming from the south, prepare for some u-turns on a major highway. The sites are large, and easy to back into. The price is not bad for the area, and its a pretty well kept older campground, no frills, but quiet and peaceful. I would recommend here if you are looking for a quiet spot for a couple days, and still be in easy traveling distance of the beaches, state parks, etc... - Davescrate
