We hosted a small TAB rally here around the Easter holiday. Campground was full but quiet. Girls at front desk were friendly and helpful. Ideal location for seeing the island. Best way is by bicycle. Not far from St.Simon's or Cumberland Island. The camp host was very friendly and accommodating. Two nice community rooms for gatherings. One brand new one is large and very nice. Bathrooms are older but they are kept clean. Updates with vents and a/c would be nice. Water pressure varied.
Great little bird sanctuary at the campground, pretty and well maintained. I would stay here again. Seems like a fun place to spend some of the winter months. We will be back someday. The campground manager is helpful and friendly. Pretty trees and Spanish moss through out the campground. - User3758

We stayed at Jekyll Island from December 30 thru January 2, 2016 on our way to Florida. We normally stay in Brunswick, GA but thought we would get the Island experience, what a surprise. Wonderful campground and great people to help. Can not say enough good about it even after I hit a tree branch pulling in. The people in the site across from us gave me a name and he came out News Years day to patch my roof. Walking distance to the beach and fishing pier. Bicycle riding is the transportation of choice on the trail which circles the island. Cannot wait until next year. - TheBounders

The sites are a little close together for my liking. The site is covered in tree bark chips. All of the hookups worked and the place is well maintained by a legion of campground hosts. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. The campground is a good way from the other attractions on Jekyll Island so you will need some type of transportation once you get there. There are lots of very large trees real close to the road. Be very careful. We asked the girl in the office about extending our stay one night. "Nope, that site is rented." No offer of another site or any alternative. Lots of Snowbirds in the campground staying several months. - Badlands Bob

Our site was facing the small campground lake and was surrounded with palmettos. The check in staff was probably the most friendliest we've met on this trip. This campground almost has a tropical feel to it. The wifi at the sites is a little weak so we sat at the check in office which has a covered porch and plenty of seating. This has to be one of our top 3 places so far. - Fun finders

Beautiful rustic campground with the longest pull through sites I have ever seen. The sites were nicely spaced and very private and quiet. Nice hiking trails. Would have liked to canoe, but the weather didn't cooperative. The signage within the campground could have been a little more clear, and the foliage needs some trimming, but overall it was a great stop. Definitely would recommend it if you like the rustic camping type feel. Convenient location for side trips to the islands. - Sally Chew

Choice of pull-through or back-in; all sites are level and nicely graveled. There was a lake for fishing and bike trails. The campground was very quiet. Stable power and good water quality and pressure. Handicap sites area available. - Starxd

When we looked for a park in this area, we saw that Coastal Georgia RV Resort was rated a 9.3 on this website. We've become a bit cynical where the ratings are concerned, so hoped for the best. I have given almost no 10 ratings, but this place deserves it! Virtually all of the sites are large pull-thrus, but unlike pull-thrus in most other parks, these are spaced out and are surrounded by lush grass and nice landscaping, so that you actually have some privacy when sitting outside at your picnic table. The sites that are back-ins on the water are also beautiful, and are aligned in such a way that even though you are backed in, the site is angled so that you have a nice view of the water. This park is close to I-95, but there is a thick forest of trees between you and the highway so noise is minimal. Everything is immaculately kept and the people are nice, too! We only stayed one night, but this goes on our list of definite stops. - dbcordello

Good Sam discount rate for a large, 50 amp, FHU, pull-thru site. Hookup pedestal is very convenient. Park is easily accessed from I95 and has minimal traffic noise. The resort is well maintained, has paved roads, concrete parking pads, concrete picnic pads, and nice landscaping between sites. We had good satellite reception and good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. We would stay here again. - Dave51

Easy on and off I-95 and plenty of fuel choices adjacent to the park. - sbrown

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. - campiflo

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. - Dreaming

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. - Bonnie-Ken

Nice state park with boat ramp on the Crooked River. Mostly empty campground in early August with good paved roads and some pull-thrus.
Park includes marked kayak trails on Crooked River with mini golf and a playground for kids. Our site had great views of the river at sunset. Sites are treed, but we managed to get satellite reception which was good as the normal cable was knocked out by an earlier storm. - Appleknocker

We really enjoyed this beautiful park and campground, and hope to return. At first we expect to be assigned a spot, so found the whole "select your own" a bit daunting. But, shortly we found a very nice site, in fact I think they are all pretty nice. The bathrooms were very nice. We were surprised to see a State Park with Cable TV, the disappointed that the system was not working. We enjoyed the great birding and the trails. We were disappointed that the Nature Center was closed during our two day visit, and that no one on the staff could help us with tree identification. We found the electric and water to work quite well for us. - Bernalillo_Girl

This is truly a disappointment for a Georgia state park, most are just outstanding. There is a minimum 2 night stay at this park. The sites are all huge and will fit the biggest rigs. It's quiet and clean. This is a typical state park where you can only reserve a campsite TYPE, not any particular site. That's a first come first serve. The bad part is that the water pressure was low and the electric was weak, at times dangerously low. The infrastructure needs work. Use caution when hooking up and using electric, it could damage your electrical system. - creeper

Easy to find and easy in and out. Paved inner roads. Pull Thru was FHU with level concrete pad with patio. Wide and long enough for our 40' motorcoach with a tow and two slides. Mature trees and shrubbery between spacious sites for privacy. Patio area with picnic table. Nice areas to walk dogs. No litter, trash or dog waste. Nice responsible pet owners who pick up. Pond with fountain and catch and release. Great way to unwind from a day on the road or from sightseeing/eating/shopping in St. Marys.
Loved the free range chickens and had no problems with crowing that others have mentioned. Maybe our rig is better insulated. We heard there is a great pot luck on the weekends and card games during the week for those who love to meet others and swap stories. Whether you like that, or you just want to chill out, the campground is wonderfully relaxing and peaceful. You won't regret giving them a call and staying here. We will be back again. - SerenityRVing

This was our third snowbird winter at this park. Why? It is an extremely comfortable park. Most sites are level concrete separated by trees and other plants. The owner and staff are attentive and the Sunday (and holiday) potlucks are great. Restrooms/showers are very good. There are no-see-ums, and some have problems with the free-range chickens. We think it is part of the charm. Price is lower than northern Florida parks and the weather is much the same. The park is generally full in the winter so call first. - gumper

We chose this campground based on other reviews. We would not classify this as a "gem". Roosters crowing at 5:30 am and running wild had our dog on high alert and shaking the whole time. Neighbors sewer connection was almost on our concrete. Very small place and although there were lots of RVs, not many people. Will not be back. - Patricia1975

We finally got a reservation for Eagle Hammock RV park after everyone staying at military campgrounds recommended it. We stayed for three weeks and enjoyed every bit of it. I can't say enough about the park and the staff. Wide, paved sites, gravel roads. All the amenities were top notch, including free laundry! The only downside is there is nothing to do in the immediate area. You need to travel to Jacksonville, Brunswick or Yulee for anything to do. So if you want a place to just stay and relax, this is the place for you. It is probably the best military only campground we have stayed at. If you can get the reservation, which during the winter is next to impossible, its a great place to stay. We would definitely go back! - pfogleboch

This is an excellent campground typical of military bases. Sites are spacious with full hookups that all worked. We paid $2.00 extra per night for lakefront site. Views were spectacular of birds and alligators. Pets must be kept close because the gators have been known to catch a small dog or cat. Plenty to do off base. St Marys is a small coastal town with a waterfront downtown and some good places to eat and a ferry to outlying islands. We will stop here again. - Bojangles

Cash or check only. This a great park. The sites are paved and level. Some of the sites are fairly roomy, others narrow. The park is extremely well maintained. The managers are friendly and helpful. Best wifi we've had in a rv park. This was our second time staying here, the last time was Sept., 2015. Close to St. Simons, Jekyll Island, 60 miles south of Savannah, 80 miles north and east of Okefenokee Swamp. This park is a great "jumping off" point to visit the above. - oldbluejay

We stopped at this park on our travels up the east coast. The park is very small, but flat and clean. The sites are fairly small, but we had plenty of room for our slides and our awning. Some people complain about the interstate noise, but we barely even noticed it. The park is conveniently located near St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island and Brunswick. Great for experiencing the deep history of the Golden Isles of Georgia. We got lucky and the Blessing of the Fleet Festival was the weekend we stayed. The priest blesses the Shrimp boats before the season from the bridge over the Darien River. There is a lot of history in this area. We stayed for 5 nights. Almost all pull-through sites except for the few campers that live on site and they are all in back-in sites. This is a very good option for travelers heading north on I-95. Very easy to get to. We would stay here again. - Cliff-fa-fa

We stayed overnight on our way to Florida. The sites are paved and pretty close but it was great for an overnight. Easy access, close to the interstate but we were not bothered by road noise. We were lead to our site and helped to get situated. They accept cash only. - shenandoahvalley2

We only stayed overnight, but we were impressed with the friendliness of staff and overall clean and cared for appearance of this campground. It has an open, park like appearance, with plenty of shade trees. The campground was quiet and there was plenty of space between sites. - Camperjoyce

I gave Tall Pines a 4 rating because they have full hookups available w/50amp. That's worth a few points. Good for a one night stand. Next to I-95 and cheap. They have a few live-ins, but as long as you ignore them, they don't bother you. I fed the hungry cat, but did not see the horses. I was told this stay that new owners had taken over, but they still have a way to go. Much better than the Passport America park out side Brunswick, GA. I would rate them, but they were full and would not honor my reservations. I did stay there several years ago. Do not go into their restrooms. I-95 in Georgia does not have Passport America friendly parks. - oldcutup

Had only sites without electric, seasonals need to clean their sites, OK for 1 night stand, next trip I will stay at campground down the street. - mrt112859

Found this park when traveling I-95 north for the summer. We would definitely stay again. Nice staff, quiet campground, convenient location. - Froggi Donna

Our check-in was quick, the owner and help were very friendly. The driveways are gravel but no potholes, low dust and wide corners for turning the 36 ft 5er. The sites are sand and grass, long enough to park comfortably and wide enough to put out slides and awnings.
Our voltage and 30 amp power was low, water pressure was good. There are nice dog walk areas. There is a vacant undeveloped subdivision next door with nice paved roads to walk. I-95 is very close so you can hear the traffic. The swimming pool was just getting filled for the summer, it looked nice. The WiFi was weak if you are not in the middle of the campground. Did not use the 2 washers, restrooms are OK. This is a nice stopover campground. - Diablo
