Our 2nd (and probably last) time here. Must have been in a much better mood the last time we stayed here. They advertise "free cable" but you must put a $40 deposit on a receiver box the nwire it into your system in order to get anything.
Too much hassle for a one night stay. The parks in the area cover a wide spectrum of quality. This one falls somewhere just below the average. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

We were traveling with Adventure Caravans on a paid tour so I am not certain about the nightly rate.

I was not impressed with this park. The roads are not maintained and the sites were grass or dirt. There were many decrepit campers, even a burned out hull of one. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

The check in process was friendly and efficient. The office has an attached dining room where they serve food during the week which might appeal to some. We did not have a chance to use this being here on the week-end. There is a pool and laundry room - but again, we did not use.

This park has some problems with lots of large holes in the road which were filled with water/mud due to the rain. The ground/grassy areas were also muddy but this cannot be helped however the roads should be filled in properly. The area for parking is on a grassy area and not gravel or concrete - which creates major ruts around the site.

This park has "seen better days" as the saying goes and part of this is due to the large population of regulars who live here longer than overnight and leave lots of "stuff" around. The park is not well managed in this regard. They are in their own area but if one goes for a walk, it is less than appealing to see the lack of tidiness in the park. Plus there are many, many dogs/cats and picking up after the pets doesn't seem to be a practice. Plus barking is annoying.

Would we stay here again? Yes, because it is a real bargain and we had no difficulties with anything - though the WiFi is only fair. We used a hot spot - which works better. The bottom line is that this is good for a quick stopping point but there are several other parks in the area far more appealing (and more expensive) than this and if staying longer, we would opt for them. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

Close to Jekyll Island - which is a great area to visit. They also have a wonderful RV park, though the sites are pretty close together but the location is great.

Very old, tired looking park. We are Passport America members and when I made the reservation the rate was $16 a night. When we checked in we were charged $22 plus taxes. When we questioned this, she said that the rates have changed. OK, I get that but they should have changed the listing on the Passport America web site. The next day it was changed. Parking is on grass and fairly level. A lot of long term residents with some having a lot of junk outside of their rigs. Good 50-amp power but very low water pressure. The WiFi is free but it is very slow. We were able to use our on-board satellite in site 41. We think $40 a night plus tax to park on grass is a bit expensive and we will not return even with the Passport America discount. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for three nights in our motorhome. Sites are a bit close together, I had to move the neighbors picnic table to open my outside bay door. The laundry was adequate. Park was quiet. The WiFi was free and fabulous...always a premium point with us. It's only a 10 - 15 minute drive to almost any kind of shopping you might need.

Everybody was friendly, the grounds and facilities were clean. We had a drive thru site. We were just passing through so I can't tell you what was there to see. I would stay again. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We pulled in to stay for the night, office was closed. Sign said find a spot, pay in morning. People were pulled in every which way and there wasn't a map to follow only the one on the board. We stopped and walked around to see the numbers that had 50 amp hookups. There were trailers there with junk sitting around them that looked like squatters had taken up residence. Tractor trailer trucks and flat beds parked along the roadway. Not sure if people were staying in them or not. Hugh pot holes in drive way. Unkept people just "hanging out". This place was not appealing. We decided not to stay here. This was also marked a Good Sam Club Park. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ok for an overnight stay. Easy on and off access from I-95. They advertise "cable TV" but you have to get a cable box from the office (with a $40 deposit) and then hook it up to your TV. Very impractical for most RVs with built-in TVs, especially if you have more than one. If the front office had been truthful about this when we checked in, we would have gone elsewhere. Wifi connection was strong, however. Lots of pull-thru sites for overnighters, but beware the wicked right turns towards the exits if you park too close to the end of the row. As there are other more modern parks in the area, we would only stay here again if there were no vacancies at nearby parks. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

Simple park with sites far enough apart. We stayed three nights. The "permanent" folks were in a separate area. The restaurant is open Mon - Fri. Breakfast and Lunch. The Friday seafood buffet was very reasonable and great catfish and shrimp. Laundry was clean. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is old, sites were once gravel now overgrown with grass & no patio. Ground was soft during rain. Hookups were old. Stayed for 3 nights but didn't see a pool or playground. Several permanent residents, old and/or run down/abandoned campers on sites and in visible storage area. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice pull-thru park for overnight off of I-95. Amenities were good. Unfortunately, the one bath house had broken air conditioner. Had my own shower so it was not an issue. Easy on and off I-95. Staff friendly and helpful. Good experience. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

This campground could be so much better if the staff would do something to clean it up. After a rain the sites are soft and mushy. Some stone would make a big difference and make the sites better after a storm. There are old campers that haven't moved or been lived in for years located in the park. The good is the Passport price and the closeness to I-95. Flying J and the Denny's restaurant are a plus. Good food at Denny's and cleaner than most. This campground is an overnight stop and not much more. We stayed in a fifth wheel. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I only give this park a 6 because the people were exceptionally nice. Probably the nicest camp workers I have run into in the last 2 years. The park itself was muddy, the sites were very close together, and the Charter cable box that you have to use to get the cable was a real pain to get set-up. They do have a nice lunch deal here with a buffet for around $10. They do get a 10 for hospitality though, and that's the only reason I would say its an okay stopover for a night to see Jekyll island. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.

Would recommend if in the area. Very convenient to I-95 in Brunswick. Most sites are pull-thru. Rained night before leaving and site had standing water. Drinking water had a funny spell/taste after the rain, but fine before. Helpful/Friendly staff. Will stay here again. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Conveniently located off I-95 (with a Pilot/Flying J stop (with RV lanes) between the highway and the campground, Golden Isles has sites in several areas: transient spots right behind the office and pool and sites for longer term residents. Good free wi-fi service and over the air TV reception from Savannah and Charleston, free cable service is available using supplied digital adapter from the office. Restaurant attached to the office offers a buffet breakfast and lunch which is very popular with local residents and workers. There is a full-service grocery store within walking distance. Passport America rate We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Motorhome.
