Quiet, very picturesque facility fronting the Suwannee River. Sites are shady with large Live Oaks and Spanish Moss. Sites fronting the river were designed so motor homes could pull in facing the river. Hookups are on the wrong side for towables that must back in and utility extensions are required. However, a few of these sites do have sewer hookups on both sides. Other sites are large and private with vegetation separating them.

Park is clean and well maintained. Roads and sites are packed white sand. Bathhouse is composed of separate private units and was clean. However, the bathhouse is not heated or cooled. Wifi was strong and fast. Park location is somewhat remote with nearest groceries and fuel about nine miles away. There is a boat launch and dock available as well as boat rentals. Bingo and other activities were regularly scheduled. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

When we called the office to make reservations we had asked about the river front spaces. We were told that they were all made for Motor Homes and that all the hookups would be on the wrong side. (Too bad they don't have a few for us that have to back in.) They did offer to loan us extensions but we opted for a space right across from the river. Our spot was easy to get into. First evening the biting flies were really bad. (Guess we should have known that due to the name.) Also found that the cable did not work for us or our neighbor. (This was corrected next day.) Restrooms were very clean however, only 1 open on the ladies side and one on the men's. Could not find the showers and was told the next day that they are only in the handicapped restrooms so only 2 for the whole camp? I was told that they would open the other restrooms when it got busier. We were there on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night and it did get busier but never saw anymore of them opened. We did use the pool and it was very nice. Boat docks and ramp were busy and seemed to be in good shape. Nice tables to sit at and watch the boaters coming in. Some rules about golf carts being only for seniors and disabled. Was not an issue for us. Also rule about not bringing in wood. We normally carry our own as most state parks allow you to. We did see people gathering their own instead of buying from the office. Pets were supposed to be kept on a leash no longer than 6 foot. However, there were several that were running loose. One came into the campsite next door to us that had a dog and they went to the office to report it. It ended up belonging to one of the full time residents. Overall nice stay and we would return again. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Grocery store is about 9 miles into town. Also nice paved bike trail in town that runs across the Suwannee River.

A hidden gem. Very friendly staff and patrons. Site was clean and level, albeit sandy. Somewhat rough road to enter but worth the short trip off the beaten track. We really enjoyed a three day stay here and would definitely use again if we are in the vicinity. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a well maintained campground that is ideal for nature lovers who want peace and quiet. It is off the beaten path. The dock is well maintained and has a boat/kayak launching area. The lots on the water are beautiful. The lots are large and many are shaded. This is a hidden gem. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I have been staying at this park for the past 5 years periodically throughout the year. Not sure if they have taken on new management or what is happening here. It is still a beautiful park and one of the prettiest I have ever stayed at traveling throughout the US, however, the personnel have changed drastically. Every time I go there it appears more and more permanent residence are moving in. Many now have large decks and have made it a home. The atmosphere is terrible and the campground manager, which is a big gentleman who wears a campground security shirt many of the days, makes you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. This in turn makes me wonder if going back for the river justifies my family feeling uneasy, especially since they feel they need a security man to patrol and make sure people know things are done his way or you may be removed from the campground. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground, spent 3 days, staff very friendly and obliging. We notice while here, maintenance and improvements to the campground seem to be an ongoing, though in no way was this a problems. They seem to be very discreet and mindful of their guests. I would go again. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We come here again and again. It's less than 3 hrs from home, but might as well be 1000 miles away. We leave our work and worries behind. It's beautiful, peaceful and perfect. So quiet and clean. Few children, if any. Wonderful waterfront with nice docks. Rent a pontoon boat - it's great. The owners are very nice pet friendly people. It's obvious that they love it here too. The sun on the water is breathtaking, and there are plentiful fish below the surface. It's our choice for a quick getaway. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Passport America discount. Very friendly staff, right on river if you like to fish. Showers and bath are combo in separate rooms, very CLEAN. Only problem was the "no see-um's". We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground was great place to stay. The sites were very big and very shaded. The roads were white sand but not messy. Everything was clean and kept up. The staff were all very nice and friendly. The office manger went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable (thanks). The park is very quiet. It is located on the Suwanne River. If you like peace and quiet, this is for you. Fishing and boating is right here. The only drawback was the nearest town is 9 miles away. The nearest shopping is about 30 miles away. So do your shopping for food before you get there. Our AT&T cellphones did not work and our AT&T Wi-Fi did not work. Other than that, it was avery nice 2 weeks. We will go back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is in a great scenic place along the Suwannee River. Our site was on the river with a great view. Sites are dirt with some light gravel (level). Each site had a fire ring and most had very heavy tree cover. Cable TV was acceptable with 20 channels but almost no service for AT&T customers with marginal service for Verizon cell users. The park has way too many rules published even though we were not bothered by any of the staff looking for violations. LOL. Pool looks new and over view of park is very good. It is located 9 miles down the road from Old Town down a lime rock road and 15 miles from Chiefland where you can find Super Wal-Mart and grocery store. Yellow flies were out so we used a screen house around picnic table. Nice pavilion and clubhouse. You can purchase bags of ice from the office plus wood as you are not allowed to bring any wood into park. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground has an old Florida feel however it is very dusty and buggy. The long road in is all sand and dust. It's right on the Suwannee River, though, and is very picturesque. I was surprised by a previous reviewer's comments that there was no sewer and no 50 amp. I had both. I stayed here years ago before they had built the pool and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We rented a pontoon boat from the campground and watched the manatees. This time not so much. I was using the place as a two night stopover (they take Passport) and had a lot of computer work to do. The Wi-Fi doesn't accommodate Macs! The owner was very helpful and put me on the phone with the geek in town who had set it up, but he had no idea how to help. He said more people have PCs so he doesn't worry about it. I guess he hasn't looked at Apple stock prices lately. Anyway, I got my money back and moved to a campground down the road. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this park; we own a campground and stay in many many parks when we travel. The pool area is really well done. The park is neat and tidy. The bathrooms are private and clean. Terrific owners, have done lots of work to make it a lovely park all around. We'd definitely come back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Great RV park, wish I could spend more than 1 week. Clean bath and showers. Cable TV good. Wi-Fi untested. Large sand and gravel lot in the woods right on the river. Perfect view. Friendly crew. Water needs a filter and cell phone service weak. We will be back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The water at this campground is very poor quality. It's yellowish brown and rusty. Our clothes were ruined in the washer because of the bad water. Surely this can't be healthy to drink?!! We have camped at this campground in the past and the same problem existed then so apparently it's not a concern for them. We will not camp here again.
