There are really two campgrounds. One is in the woods on the Intracoastal Waterway and the one we prefer is right on the dunes of the Atlantic Ocean. The dune sites are close together along a narrow sand roadway with no shade or privacy. It is the location that makes this a heavily used campground. There are several walkways over the dune to a sensational Atlantic Beach and an outdoor shower to wash off the beach sand. At the south end of the campground is a gate that leads to a dog friendly beach. Some sites are a bit short for anything over 30 feet but most will accommodate a 40 footer. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Large level sites. Very easy in and out. Utilities were good: w/e/s. Bathhouse looked fairly new. Showers were very clean. Gravel site. They have two sides to the campground: one on the river and one on the ocean. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Best value anywhere!! We stayed on the beachside. It's difficult to get a site reserved there because these are very popular. We could only get 2 nights for our stay. Our site was 03 which is a back-in site right next to the dunes by the Atlantic Ocean. However, the dunes were tall and the vegetation was such that we could not see the ocean. The sites just across from us would have worked fine too (and they are sometimes more available). Sites like 19 & 21 have ocean views but are solidly booked up. But if you can get a site, do it! It was awesome! Walking to the beach each day, sitting there in the evening listening to the waves. Nothing better. And it's like having your own private beach; there's hardly anyone there. Flagler Beach is a nice, low-key town with no highrise condos everywhere. You can take your dog on the beach too; just not within the boarders of the park. You just have to walk a little bit up the road to another entrance. Restaurants in town (about 3 miles) are great too. Park staff were extremely friendly and helpful, including the camp host. We'll definitely be back! We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We ate at Tortuga's and it was good. Right on the A1A overlooking the ocean with a great patio. It's very dog friendly too.

We stayed in the loop furthest from the water as our fifth wheel was too long at 35 ft. The Intracoastal Waterway loop was great with large, mostly unshaded spots. The gravel made for very level spots. Drainage was tested (and passed) with the downpours from the tropical depression forming. No pooling of water. Only the sites on the inner loop have sewer, which is funny because they encircle the rest rooms. Probably an ecological decision.

Flagler Beach is how all Florida beaches use to be with lots of easy, public access. Would return again and stay longer. Rate is the senior Florida resident rate. No wi-fi. Minimal antenna reception. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in the Riverside Loop. 50/30/20 amp, water; inner sites have sewer. Outside sites more privacy. No shade, but level asphalt/gravel sites. Staff is great. Mile long hiking trail, bike paths (paved and unpaved), kayaking on the Inter-Coastal Waterway, fishing, small butterfly garden. Well maintained loop. Only a short walk across A1A to the beach. And, a short walk/bike ride/drive to Flagler Beach for groceries, restaurants, fuel, etc. Would return to Riverside Loop definitely. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We reserved site #57/Riverside on a walk-in availability. So wonderful to get a RV site! The office staff are extremely nice! Very clean park and level gravel back-in site! We will return again and again! We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

One of our favorite campgrounds, we stay here at least once a year if we can get reservations. Beachfront camping. They are expanding to the intercoastal side of the park, should be open later this year. Several excellent restaurants in the area.

Beautiful beach, wonderful surf, lots of road noise and sand. Sites fairly wide but most are best for 32 feet long or less. Large trailers and 5ers will have trouble backing in because the road is fairly narrow. Electric good, water a little weak, just adequate for a shower in our rig. No shade at all. Verizon MiFi and cell worked great. Not much beach at high tide, beautiful at low tide. Can't see the ocean from most sites, but the sound of the surf at night after the traffic subsides will cause us to return. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Great, right behind the first dune, 100' to the beach. Even though your between A1A and the ocean, road traffic is not an issue. We pulled in forward and had a frontal view of the ocean. Site was raked and in fantastic shape. Palmetto between sites gave good privacy. Free air TV had 50+ channels. The High Tide grill was a 10 minute walk north on the beach and had acceptable frozen seafood for lunch on the beach. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Incredible views of the ocean just steps from your site. Because this is a narrow park right on the ocean, road noise is considerable, but that is made up by the view and is somewhat blocked by the wind noise and sounds of the surf. Sites are very sandy, so you may also want blocks or something solid if you use jacks. Also, if you are on the beach side and want to pull in forward, you will need a longer electric cord and water hose. Only recommendation is to not come here during Bike Week in Daytona as roar of motorcycles could be heard almost all night and certainly all day. Would highly recommend this place--fills up very fast, so get reservations at 11 month opening. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Small RV park on the beach. Great location for seeing the area. Will stay here again and get closer to the bath house where you can drive up and have your front windows face the ocean. Quiet and peaceful. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This park has a nice feel and put us into a laid-back Florida beach feel right away. It is a narrow strip by the ocean with sites on both sides of the CG's road. Great value to be on the ocean, and a real steal for lucky FL residents with discounts. Heed the notice when you reserve about length restrictions and some sites being hard to back into. We were OK in a 22' class B, but others had trouble. Restrooms were the nicest we've seen in a public park. Roomy well planned shower spaces. Already booked to return.

Nice campground on the ocean. About 1/2 of the sites are actually on the ocean. Park rangers patrol the park often. Sites are not private nor shaded because it is indeed on sand: just some scrub palms. It is often windy which means no awnings! Price reflects Florida senior rate. It would be really nice to have sewer and internet. TV received many stations. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds, even if you don't get an oceanfront site. The greatest amenity is the view! It just doesn't get any better. There is always an ocean breeze which makes summer temps bearable. Campground hosts were great. Campers were friendly. The rate is Florida's senior rate (FL residents get 50% off the price if they're 65+.) Campground is clean. Sites are sandy. (It is beachfront!) We will camp here as often as possible.

Really want to like this campground, but we will not go back. GREAT CAMP HOST: really made our visit just talking to him and finding out about the area. Beach was right here, but it was not too good compared to many we have visited on the Gulf coast. Great place to relax but we are an active family looking for more than the surf to play in. Great location for some, but only OK for us. We camped at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
