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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Favorite Florida SP. 50A FHU. Paved streets. Close to Jupiter, Stuart, West Palm Beach. Very clean. Can get windy. Road noise apparent on sites close thereto. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tequesta is bike ride distance with new bike path. Good food. Hobe Sound had shopping and food also, Harry & The Natives is great restaurant

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.

Tips for other Campers:

While in the area, visit the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and climb to the top for a great view of the river, Jupiter Island, and the Atlantic.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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.
