We camped here for 4 days at an ocean side site. There are is also a river campground with more secluded sites. The park was beautiful and our site was terrific with views of the dunes and beautiful sunsets. The sites are close together but no worse than other campgrounds we have stayed in. The fort was quite interesting and well restored. A nice piece of preserved American history. A must see if in the area. We would stay here again if in the area. momdoc. - momdoc

I guess for a park that spans hundreds (thousands?) of acres I was expecting a little more elbow room between sites. They have all this land and yes I'm top of my neighbor. Very little privacy and I had no idea my site would be paved (site 25). In looking around I did see some better spots, but still no elbow room compared to some other state parks I've been too. That said, the restrooms were immaculate, the hiking trails were fun, and the fort is awesome. The pier was closed and will be indefinitely due to the hurricane. Beach looked nice but it was too cold to go. - l2yangop

We were on the beach loop, and access to the beach and ocean is excellent there via a relatively short boardwalk. There's a swimming beach and long fishing pier a long walk or short drive away, although the pier was closed due to hurricane damage when we were there. We really would have liked to see more space between the sites given all the open land available, but I wouldn't call the sites crowded in though. The water and electric hookups were well placed within easy reach, and worked well with good voltage and water pressure. Our Verizon and AT&T cell services worked well, and we had a completely clear sky view for satellite reception. The campground was very quiet at night with just the inevitable wave sounds to help us sleep. Our stay at Ft Clinch was overall very pleasant, and we will be going back. - NYDutch

If you want to visit the area of Fernandina Beach, then this is the most convenient place to stay. Fort Clinch is closer, but it is very difficult to find a spot there during the summer months and at times you are overrun with Mosquitos. The spots that are held open for transient guest are fairly large and lever and it does adjoin Lofton Creek that has a boat ramp and dock area. Other then that the campsite has no other amenities to offer. I think the manager attempts to keep the bath and shower area clean but it is old and difficult especially with the permanent residents continually dragging in mud and dirt. Notwithstanding, until there is a better alternative, this is the best place to stay if you want to visit the Fernandina Beach area. - laringrp

We paid $150 because we stayed a week. The absolute only reason we stayed here is because we wouldn't be at the campground only to sleep. The location is perfect for Amelia Island. We visited family there and thus were not at the campground during the day. It is filled with permanent RVs. They do not keep their sites neat or clean. The host was very friendly and actually mowed the grass while we were there. It was very long when we arrived. A very rough, dirty road. The sites are on grass. Easy on and off of Hwy A1A. A quick overnight stay is the only reason we would return. - schoolmarm

Got to the park at 12:30. Office closes at 12:00. Called the number on the door. I was told to pick site 1-4. Electric pedestal was rusted out. Cable TV line came out of the ground. Campground was unkempt, worn out looking. It was right next to a motorcycle tire yard. Made a u-turn and found another campground. - Steve Morris

We called and spoke with the manager and made reservations to arrive on Saturday. We arrived to find a sign on the office door, "CLOSED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY". Well, we also saw a phone number to call in emergency; called the cell number without any response (recording). Very helpful tenants above the office gave us the number for the park owner; sorry to say, same non response. Long story short, we walked the campground. There were several permanent campers (not bad people). Campground is VERY rundown with coax cables run across multiple sites to reach a camper's site. We left and found a beautiful park elsewhere. - Ruth & Ron

I have camped in this area on many occasions when I visit Amelia Island. I have usually past it by because I was not familiar with it as it has never been reviewed on this site, and it is not very convenient to Amelia Island. On this occasion I was staying in another campground and it was dirty all around so I went over to check out this campground and was pleasantly surprised. We only stayed here a short while but overall the grounds were clean, sites fairly level, generally quiet and most importantly to me, the showers and rest rooms were spotless. The campground is inhabited by mostly permenant residents but there are many sites that are available for transient campers and a lot of them are pull through. It has a pool but it was too cool to check it out. My one gripe is that it is a bit far for me to go to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach but the price is certainly reasonable ($420.00) for the month and it is clean. - laringrp

Being unable to get a reservation back in December, we instead reserved at a park up the road which turned out to be unworkable. I called Eagle Hammock while we were still at the other campground and got lucky with a very nice overflow spot for 4 nights. It was on the grass next to the end space on E row. The only inconvenience was having 30 amps instead of 50 but we were able to manage. OTA TV was very good. Great walking paths around the lake. Everything is very clean and neat. There were severe thunderstorms but the rain didn't cause any problems for the grassy site. The park manager was wonderful. We would love to stay again. - all4pets

Starting at Front gate with the courteous & helpful security staff, it only got better. Easy to locate, easy to maneuver. The FC staff very friendly and helpful. (Helpful is high praise when you have no knowledge of the CG.) Well worth the stay; will definitely return. - Belle-Bailey

Talbot State Park is divided into Big Talbot and Little Talbot, which is the further south of the two, and actually has camping. Little Talbot itself is divided by FL A1A with the Ranger Station, check-in, and Atlantic beach access to the east, and camping and river access to the west side of the road behind a gate.
Our low service marks are due to the borderline rude ranger working the evening shift the first night. All of the other rangers we encountered were very pleasant.
This site is mixed RV/tent access, and some tent campers had last used our site leaving the fire-ring in the middle of the RV slot. Not an issue, but always a reminder to inspect your site before you back up.
We did have a humorous encounter with some other campers while here. Across from our site is the park's "ampitheater" and is marked with a sign that closely resembles the universal wi-Fi icon. While chatting with a couple walking their four legged friends, they commented that at least we were at the end of the park with the wi-Fi. My wife pleasantly told them that the wifi didn't work at this location, so they weren't missing out on anything. - Hyperoxic

Unbelievably beautiful foliage in this park, but that beauty comes with narrow passage on the bumpy roads in the campground. Big rigs need not apply. Our 26' fifth wheel made it, but larger (especially taller) rigs would have difficulty. We stayed one night on the way south, and liked the park so much, we booked two nights during our return trip. We enjoyed that stay so much, we then booked a two week stay next spring. I think that says it all. - HabaneroMike

I really wish I could rate this higher and maybe if we had came at another time it would've been different. This was around the time of a passing hurricane so the camp area was mushy wet from the abnormally high tides just going out, the picnic table had so much algae on it that it wasn't useable at all. Other camp sites had standing water around the tents, thank goodness we had a travel trailer! You couldn't use enough bug spray, the mosquitos had rib cages..but we made the best of it for the time we were there. There was a nearby boat ramp to the marsh area and the beach area wasn't that far of a drive. You could also rent kayaks up the road. - 2Austins

Mostly permanent residents with lots of clutter around the units. Cracked concrete pads. Very narrow sites, some not conducive to multiple slides. Clean but very old bathrooms. Game room dumpy. Staff friendly, clean laundry, and close to interstate for those just traveling through the area. Great Internet, able to stream without a problem. - dkTennessee

Had to stay two nights but will never stay again. Directions were useless. Billboard hadn't been changed to reflect the new name, nobody working in office and cell phones apparently not in use because we tried several times to call and had zero luck. Place was packed with seasonal campers and very close quarters. I asked my wife to pass the pepper and the guy next door brought it over. - Mr. Camper

Perfect midway point for us traveling from Orlando area back to NC. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Older campground with extra long sewer lines needed for sewer hookup. Sites really close. Pet friendly with trails and a lake. Great location right off the interstate without noise from the road. Some rundown, permanent sites there but for overnight, had everything we needed and price was GREAT! - rwright

We have stayed here on numerous occasions enroute south or returning north from points in Florida. The campground is always clean and the staff extremely friendly. The only drawback is that it lies on one of the departure/takeoff (depending on the wind) flight paths for Jackson International Airport. However, we've never experienced any overnight noise. We will continue to stay here! - dandd

Easy access from the highway, everything is pavement or cement, except for the tiny bit of grass between sites. Really, just a parking space. Park has a nice pool area and a pond and canal along one edge. I mention the pond and canal because we go to Florida for birding and see most of the birds along water. Planes made it a bit noisy, but the morning trash pick up was handy. We came in stayed a night and moved on. - SeeinUSA

This is A Sun Resort Campground and I expected more. There are rows and rows of paved sites, some grass along the sides and lots of permanent campers who have lots of "stuff" all over. Just a place to park. Too bad it wasn't just one night. - Sammy23

We stayed here for 4 nights to catch up on shopping before continuing on our way to Florida. The park is just a mile north of the Florida state line. All sites except the tent sites are pull-thru, and most have a picnic table and fire ring. The angled sites make them seem larger than they actually are, but the site we were put on was sandwiched between a semi-permanent site with only about 10' between us on one side, and an apparently derelict trailer on the other side. We've had much nicer sites here in the past. The free pancake or waffle breakfast is a nice treat, and served every day. The dog park is fairly large, and kept stocked with poop bags, as are a couple of other locations. The free WiFi is fairly good considering how full the park was during our stay. Our site gave us a tight satellite view, and the park cable system has a pretty extensive channel selection. Verizon cell service was quite good here for both voice and data. - NYDutch

We stayed here as an overniter on our way to Disney World. We did so after reading some good reports on some RV forum websites. We arrived around 5:00 pm and the friendly girl told me there was a $2.00 charge still on our bill. I had paid the bill when we reserved many months before. All she wanted to know was how did I want to pay it. I asked her what it was for and she said she had no idea but did I want to just add it to the credit card I did the reservation with. Being only $2 and we were on vacation, I let it go. Seemed almost petty for them and just an explanation would have been nice.
The campground was fairly clean. The gravel sites were raked. Road noise from I-95 was terrible.
Its not a bad place but nothing great either. Absolutely not worth $56 for an overnight spot off I-95. I'd stay here again only if they offered and overnighter rate for around $30. - Barney Fife

Got charged an extra night due to a miscommunication over the phone. Partly my fault for not checking the confirmation email. Owner refused to take the charge off even though the park was only 20% full. Not happy :-(
Does not have a threaded sewer connection. Should use a plug if you have one, or they sell them on site for $6.
Sites were spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was dirt and grass, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - G and L

This is an older park with a lot of perms and long-term residents. The road are quite narrow and tree-lined, so we had to be very careful in piloting our 37-foot RV plus tow around the loop to get to our site.
The site seems to be a mix of gravel, sand, and grass. It was level enough that we didn't need to lower our jacks to level.
Electric power was good, but their hand-out sheet asks guests to turn off AC when not in our units. On 90 degree plus days, that would make it nearly impossible to cool our unit down to a livable temperature.
There is no cable TV. I noticed a lot of permanent satellite dishes around the park but we given no info on how to use them or even if we COULD use them.
The WIFI was very good---after I hooked up my booster. Before that, not so much.
The price seems a bit high considering there is nothing to do here. - dhaney1944

We stayed here as an overnight stop enroute to New York. Directions and signage were adequate. Interior roads were paved and sites were level and composed of dirt and grass. There is no swimming pool or cable TV. It is easy access to I-95 at exit 1 in Georgia. The office staff was courteous and polite. The campground was clean and well kept. - George316

Our first stay. It's rustic with a western flair. Close to the Interstate but not a lot of highway noise. As it was just an overnight stay, I can't comment on area recreation, restaurants or campground amenities. Would return. - grandma0942

We stayed at this park for a week and had a fantastic time. The park is clean and the staff is friendly. The only complaint I had were the roosters! The park has free-range chickens, and the rooster starts crowing at about 4 am and doesn't stop until the sun comes up. Sleep with a fan by your head or bring some ear plugs, because I was woken up early for the first few days.
Our dogs loved the fenced in dog park at the back of the property. They could run around and play off leash, which was very nice. The laundry and the restrooms were very clean, and we had no problem getting packages delivered to the park.
There is a small bar just steps away from the park. We went there one night and met the locals and got some great recommendations about what to do in the area (which I will share with you in the tip section!) - Sweetcornprincess

We stayed at the park for 6 days. We had planned on staying at another park that we had used in the past but it was full. So called this park and was accommodated with a large site and friendly service. Would stay here again. - Camper1948

An overnight stop for traveling I95, we have used this campground before and like it. Always prefer to use the Passport America parks rather than Walmarts, truck stops, etc. whenever possible. Nice people run the park and the sites are level concrete while interior roads are asphalt and nice. - Dat
