Great location if you enjoy the outdoors and hiking, kayaking, boating. Bring your camera. The beach was closed during our visit. The upper campsite where we stayed is next to the entry gate and supports big rigs with back-in lots. It is open with a few palm trees. The well manicured sites are level pea gravel with FHU 50 Amp and clean facilities. The lower campground is about four miles away near the lake and consists of smaller, wooded, grass lots for tents and small trailers, although we did see some Class C's down there. We look forward to our next visit. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice clean bathrooms. No laundry. This park has two areas. The top one is by the highway and seems more suited to bigger rigs. The river campground is the nicer of the two areas. You can ride to the little store for wifi and the setting is very nice. We would return again if through the area. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park. Well maintained. Good camp store, bike trails, and staff. Wish we had a couple more days to spend. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Had a great experience camping here. Recently redone and the staff seems to take a lot of pride in their park. All park personnel very friendly and informative. Bathrooms spotless after cleaning and sites nicely spaced. Trees immature and so very open between sites. Plan on returning next December. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We were in the Riverfront campground, four miles from the highway so it was quiet. The other campground is right on the highway. The park is very nice but shows the hard use parks in urban areas get. The campsites are well trampled, with paths cut between them, leaving little privacy. They're closer together than most state parks, too. We did not have enough voltage to run an A/C, toaster or microwave, even with everything else turned off. There was a nice dog path and trails are everywhere. Lots of activities are available. Restrooms were surprisingly well kept. There doesn't seem to be much enforcement of speed limits or noise levels. Being close to town, the park gets lots of groups of campers. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

The campsites for this park are set back miles from the main road. It is very wild and a beautiful natural setting, but lonesome. The staff that was present during our check in seemed stressed and a bit unfriendly. The sites were close and wide open with little to no privacy. The showers were clean.

Our initial stay was supposed to only be five days, but after two days, we fell in love and extended our stay to the maximum of 14 days. We had to move our campsite, but as it turns out that was good as our new spot was better. The campground was 100% full our entire stay. There may have been one space free one night, but that was it. We had full hookups, power, sewer, and water and they were placed thoughtfully. It appears the park was recently redone and it is VERY clean and VERY well maintained. There is a great playground for the kids and miles of pathways for dog walks. The RV spaces were spacious and gave us appropriate distance to our neighbors. Would I recommend this park? Absolutely. Would we come back? Absolutely Informational: We travel in a 36' Class A RV. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed in the Pine Grove Campground which has full hookups, but is not shaded. Sites were gravel back-ins and fairly level. 50 amp power was stable and water pressure was not a problem. Many OTA TV stations. Cell and Wi-Fi signals (Verizon and Sprint) were good. We stayed at Site 80, which backs to vegetation and is a bit away from the roadway noise. Finished our stay at Site 2 which is directly next to a small playground. The perfect spot for someone with kids. Not so great for someone who is looking for peace and quiet. Camp hosts and volunteers were all friendly and helpful. Shower houses were newer and always clean. Showers had latching doors and plenty of hot water. A nice place to stay. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value. We had a nice big level 50 amp FHU site. The sites in this section are all pea stone. We had no trouble with the check in process. We saw camp hosts treating the ant mounds. I wish more places would do the same. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband were also very good. Overall we had a great stay.

Perfect in every aspect with exception of road noise. LOVE this park with bike, hiking, kayak and activities. Add to these the super areas surrounding the park to north and south, it is awesome. Super staff. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

The Sand Pine section of this campground is great. Newly remodeled, the restroom/shower area is very nice and spotless. Sites are smooth gravel and mostly level. There are several trails for hikers and bikers here as well as water access. The registration folks were the slowest that we've found in our month in Florida. Lots of chatter, but not much action. It took us nearly half an hour to get set up and we had reservations. Avoid going inside if at all possible. It's a quiet place with a few birds stopping by. We'd come back, for sure. Online reservations are the way to go. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first stay was 10 days in length. Our second stay was for 8 days. We enjoyed this campground. The bathrooms were clean and conveniently located. The sites are level and roomy. As previously noted there is no shade at all but this was not a problem for us. The only issue we noted is that the campground is very popular which causes a lot of movement in and out of the campground with the usual traffic jams. I would advise anyone having a reservation during the busy season (January thru March) to arrive late rather than early on the arrival date. There is usually a line up to get in to the park and there is not very much space in the parking lot for those waiting. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is Florida senior special. This campground is beautifully laid out with large level sites. There is very little vegetation in the campground area making it feel like a big field. There is no privacy in the sites, but the newness & cleanliness of the campground make up for it. However, we like the fact that a state campground has sewer and will stay here again. The state should plant more trees/shrubs. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second stay, this time at the quiet, woodsy River Campground. We had site 116 which is quite large but needs a little care to back into. Restrooms are older but clean. We took the boat ride on the very lush, scenic river to Trapper Nelson's cabin and enjoyed it a lot - saw manatees, blue herons, ospreys. Overall, a good "old Florida" experience right off I-95 a few miles. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Florida senior discount, $13 plus tax. We stayed in the Pine Grove campground, which has all large level spacious back-in sites with a fair amount of room between them. The sites in this campground are all full hookup, but the 50 amp breaker on our site was bad so we just used the 30 amp outlet. They did replace the 50 amp breaker during our stay, so it was working when we left. As mentioned in earlier reviews there is road noise from US-1. Pine Grove is two U shaped loops. The sites at the bottom of the U back up to US-1 and have the most road noise. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent at 4G. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.
