This is a beautiful campground and park owned by the county. It is large but the spaces are situated such that you have alot of privacy. We were in space #45 which was right across from the bathhouse. The spaces are hard packed sand and ours was level. There is a concrete patio that you can pull your camper up to so that when you step out you are on concrete. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring/grill top. The cable TV worked well for us as did the Wifi. There is a nice playground, a swimming lake, canoe rental, fishing and biking trail. There isn't a camp store, but they do sell ice. There are 2 soda machines. We have At&t cell service and had good reception. There is a Dollar General Store about 3 miles down the road if you need supplies. Overall, great experience! We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Fox's Pizza in downtown Brunswick was great! Definitely visit Jekyll Island and the Driftwood Beach. Both Jekyll Island and St. Simon's Island are beautiful.

This is a great county run park!

Everything worked great. After 8pm campers have the entire park to themselves. The entrance to the park is locked at 8, but is the code is provided for after hours entry.

Good luck on getting a satellite signal due to the forest.

The roads are crushed rock and are in need of leveling. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed at hundreds of campgrounds since 2007 and this is in the top 4 in the country in our opinion. Our site made us feel like we were alone. The people were friendly. We spent 9 days here instead of the original 5 we had planned. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited Jekyl Island and even drove through their campground and was so very glad that we stayed at the Blythe Island campground as the Jekyl one was so crowded and closed in.

This is a very pleasant campground but since it is close to water you better bring your bug spray for the mosquitoes. Very shady campsites. Although there are a lot of sites in this campground, it did not feel cramped since the spacing between sites was good and there are lots of trees. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy to reach park from Freeway. Nice wooded setting. Entrance narrow for big rigs. Gate with code for after hours entry. Convenient for visiting Jekyll Island, historic Brunswick etc. Quiet park for the most part. We had four inches of rain and the roads had standing water in many places as we departed. Staff was friendly, easy check in. All hookups worked well. Super long level pull thrus with some foliage between sites. We would stay here again. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First rate park in all areas. A few miles from I-95 but minimal highway noise. All sites include WIFI, water, electric and sewer. Cheerful, efficient reception. Spaces are wide and shaded, and the bath houses were clean and spacious. There are wide, flat walking trails that lead into the old oaks draped with spanish moss. The park is a 20 minute drive to Jekyll Island, a first rate destination for cycling. Thanks to other reviewers for touting this park. Great find!

I'm not sure where all of the high scores are coming from, and I know when I read reviews and see one low score I don't pay attention to it but, a lot of the sites have branches so close that you can't put out slides but not all, I hate the dirty sand that is all through the park, some gravel would help a bunch, if your a larger MH I would unhook your toad before driving through. Nice bathrooms and walking trails, wifi is strong and water and electric is good however. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Oh boy! You can really tell the campgrounds that are government run. They have some money put into them. As advertised here. My site was over 80 feet long, extra wide, full hook-ups with a concrete pad, picnic table, and fire ring. There was a full row of trees between each of the sites, so you feel secluded. Many pavilions. Bathrooms are brand spanking new and all tile with automatic features. They have all the facilities under a code and the staff goes home at 7 PM. If you are late arrival, please call in advance and they will give you a code. Laundry was $1.25. Playground was large commercial structures. We saw a dolphin swimming in the river in the morning and several people having luck with their crab cages. They have fiber optic cable run through the campground and we had no problem getting full bars on the Wi-Fi in the center of the park with the dense vegetation. The speed varied drastically. In sunshine we could stream movies. In the rain we could hardly do anything. The lake is where the beach is and it is small and muddy/mossy. The sand is hard with lots of shells. The drives are made of that powdery gravel that gets EVERYWHERE. We took our shoes off outside and still had to vacuum three times a day. Their is no "view" of the waterfront because of the dense vegetation. The vegetation also brings lots of mosquitoes, ticks, and ants.

These folks know how to run a campground. We're not heavyweight campers, but this is one of the best we've seen. Easy to get to. Easy checkin. Everything worked perfectly: power, water, electric, cable. Sites have vegetation between them, as someone said, like a rain forest. Lot of foliage, privacy. Playground, fishing lake, hiking trails, bikes and golf carts to rent. 20 minutes from Jekyll Island. A very good and excellent campground. Glynn County is to be congratulated. Only downsides and they don't matter: couldn't get much over the air TV and when it rains there are big puddles. But folks, this is the beach. We'd go back here in a flat minute!

Stayed here while visiting family in Brunswick Georgia. This park was quite the nice location to camp. The campground is set in the middle of a what I believe was a county park which was very very well kept. There was a beach area with a swimming area in a lake, bbq areas all throughout the park. The pull thru 50 amp site we were on was sooo long you could fit two RVs and a car! they could use to be avlittle wider instead of being so long but still nice wooded sites with water, electric, sewer, and cable. The camp had free WiFi which seemed to work pretty good. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a neat campground. You felt like you were in a tropical jungle. The sites were close to each other, but thick with vegetation between each that you were unaware of your neighbor. At least this was how it was at the end sites 54-67. Nice restroom/shower facilities. Pricey but you are getting atmosphere for your dollar.

Exceptional maintance, all the sites seem to be large and have easy access. Overall, we were very pleased with our full hookup site, cable TV, internet service and the laundry. Close by to St. Simon & Jekyll Island, and rt. 95. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautifully forested area bordering the Brunswick River. The campground also features a lake, a dock, canoeing, a playground, nature trails, and bike trails. The campsites are really big and have great separation between sites with lots of vegetation. Each site has a concrete pad patio and another concrete pad with a picnic table on it. Propane is available (for motorhomes - not just bottles). Laundry is very reasonably priced and the Wi-Fi is exceptionally good. We have seen the other parks in the area and we think this one is the best! We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground. All of the sites are pull throughs and are extremely easy to get in and out of. There are many long term residents, but the park is neat and clean, and we did not feel unwelcome or out of place. There is a nice size lake that you can swim in during the summer months, and the park is only 15 - 20 minutes from St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. The cable and wi-fi worked perfectly. Each site has a concrete pad, and almost all of them had a good amount of privacy. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Based on older reviews, we did have problems with the WiFi at our site, and cannot say at all that it was the best. Sometimes it just plain did not work, in fact the office was having problems. TV reception was terrible using their cable connection. Campground staff had the cable provider come out. The cable company said that yes, we had a weak TV signal and basically they had to redo the lines. Bugs were a problem, the no-see-ums, and they did bite. Bug spray is a must. If you have a screen room, I suggest you bring it with you. Also the Verizon signal was not that strong, a few calls were dropped. We were in site #9 (back-in) overlooking the lake. This is really a nice setting, some really long pull through sites and a great place for walks, bike riding, etc. Besides what I noted, the older posts were accurate in describing this campground. Rate is based on a monthly stay. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
