Very clean natural state park. Sites level and large. We were in Pine Grove so not much vegetation but enough space to feel private. Plenty to do in park from biking to horseback riding. Be prepared to deal with ants but as long as proactive no problem. The rangers and hosts were excellent and very knowledgeable. Would have given 10 but the campground is located so close to the highway side that the morning traffic was problem - and we are not typically bothered by noise so it was definitely loud. Park is in close proximity to everything. Stayed 2 weeks and would return. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Sorry to say this state park has gone downhill since we were last. I guess budget cuts have affected service. We arrived early at 11:30 and were told someone was on our site and they had it until 1:00, so we pulled into the parking area and waited until 1:00. Again we asked if we could check-in and were told "I don't know if the site is empty, but you can go over and check it." No one was there, so we had to ask if we could check-in again. Instead of getting a map and information about what the park has to offer all we got was a piece of paper with the gate code on it and our site # and dates we were going to be staying. We were not made to feel very welcomed - the woman and guard at the gate were very unaccommodating. Checking out our site it was well raked and the fire ring and BBQ had been cleaned. The stone around the site has been overgrown with grass and weeds, and under the BBQ was 12" dried grass just asking to be a fire. The washer and dryer are outside the bathhouse and not maintained at all - they are rusted and when we used the washer ($2.50 per load) the clothes all came out with what looked like lint all over them - they had to be re-washed and hand brushed to get the material off them. We will not return here there are other parks that make you feel wanted and offer more for the same price - $26.00/night no discount for a week stay. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We were passing through and only stayed one night, but it was a nice campground. Site was fairly level and easy to back into. Good OTA tv and Verizon service. We would stay there again given the opportunity. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park with lots of outdoor things to do - bike trails, boat/canoe/kayak rentals, walking trails. RV park is mostly open with little to no shade as they lost all their trees in a hurricane many years ago. Sites are well spaced gravel, with picnic tables/BBQ. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a state park, but they have full hookups at one campground. Reserve early as the spots fill up. The park is quiet, has many nature opportunities, and nice sunsets. Bring your bike. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Located mid-way between Jupiter and Hobe Sound, FL. Pine Grove Campground: Level asphalt site with full hook-ups. Verizon signal strong. No shade as hurricane took out all the pine trees. Some highway and train noise. Four clean bath houses. Each has one washer & dryer, but each costs $2.50 a load. Fun pontoon boat tour ($20) to historic site where park ranger gives tour. (Make certain tides are in, or the historic tour is not part of the tour and it's just a boat ride for the same cost.) Interesting and new visitor center. Many bike trails through-out the park. The River Campground is under construction and may open in 2017. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Florida Power & Light opened a manatee viewing center in early 2016 in Juno Beach less than 20 miles south of the park. Hobe Sound NWR short trip north of the park.

One of the best state parks we have ever stayed in. The staff is wonderful and so helpful. We took the guided kayak tour. Steve was awesome. The river is beautiful. The sites are very big with a grill, fire ring, picnic table and a place to hang wet clothes. FHUs. There are tons of activities. We highly recommend this state park. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If arriving by GPS/Google Maps, do NOT use the park address - we did this and it brought us to the administrative offices, with no turnaround area. We ended up having to unhook our tow vehicle, swing around, and reattach, all on the brushy unpaved maintenance roads. Follow the signs, the campground is a mile up from the official address. This park has been recently redone, and so the spots are wide open with little shade. Full hookups available. Because this park is practically on the water (less than a mile from the ocean, with Jupiter Island on the other side of the highway), it is always very VERY breezy!! If you put your awning out, you might get carried away, but at least it beats a stagnant hot campground (I'm looking at you, central FL). We stayed at site 84, which was close to the main road, but far enough from the highway that noise was minimal. Sites are gravel and level. We would stay here again. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

There's a great mountain biking loop here called Camp Murphy, run by Club Scrub. My husband is a MB fanatic and couldn't stay away. There's also great kayaking here (with manatees in the water!). Walmart and other stores located north & south of the park, about a 20 min drive in each direction.

This is a fabulous state park. While there is no shade, it does have FHU, which is a huge plus in our book. The sites are level, gravel, and very spacious. There are plenty of places to ride bikes, hike, or walk the dog. They have a swimming area in the river with picnic areas and a playground. You can rent canoes, motor boats, paddle boards, or kayaks, plus there's a river tour. There is an interesting visitor center telling the history of the area as well as all the wildlife. There is slight noise from Hwy 1 when outside, but no noise inside. Again, it is slight. No WiFi, but we had good Verizon reception for our phones and hotspot and good satellite reception. Shopping/restaurants are a short drive away. We will definitely be back to this park. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the better state campgrounds in FL. Great location, large level sites with plenty of room. Verizon cell and broadband were both good. TV via batwing was also good. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived too late to reserve one of their spots in their RV park, but they allowed us to stay in their museum/interactive store parking lot. We used our generator. It was super peaceful and very nice. When we went to the RV park area to use the dump, the RV park was nice enough ... but I was actually more content where we stayed. Their RV Park is close to the noise of US 1 and has no shade whatsoever. Still, all in all, a nice spot to stay a day or two, inside this peaceful park. I'd recommend the RV Park; just accept you'll hear some highway noise and be prepared for no shade. But if I recall, the lots were blacktop and the area seemed well kept up. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for two nights at the River Campground. The gravel spots are shady and level. Nice campground close to the boat launch, park concession stand, canoe/kayak rentals, and a pontoon boat tour. Lots of bird-life. Great place for kids with fishing, bike trails, and horseback riding. We had a mother raccoon and her three babies that wandered through our campsite in the evening. The campsites on the river are small and hard to negotiate any motorhome larger than 30 feet, therefore there were lots of tent campers and small travel trailers. The staff is friendly and regularly patrolled the campground during the day. The one downside was that there was some type of disturbance in the middle of the night that involved lots of yelling on the other side of the campground. It was a Friday night and there was a party going on in that area earlier that evening. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
