I'm surprised this park isn't rated higher. Granted, there's no pool or playground, but we thought it was perfect. We like state and national parks, and this CG has that feel (lots of trees, quiet, wildlife, hiking, biking), but with amenities that many government parks don't offer: big rig access, spacious and level sites, strong cell signal, full hookups including cable. The bird "sanctuary" was just a fenced in garden with bird feeders, but very peaceful and a variety of birds. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Wide, concrete walking/bike paths go to the beach, historic district, and around the island.

Entrance tolls are confusing - Class A or C is considered "oversized" ($10 per entry), but if you're towing a trailer or 5th wheel you pay the regular vehicle rate ($6 per entry or a multi-day pass).

We come here every year during Christmas and New years. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi has been improved and worked very well. There is some bad information here from previous post I would like to correct. This is not a Ga. State park. It is operated by the Jekyll Island Authority. There is no oil used on the roads, this is just the way the dirt is when its wet. The rest rooms are old but are kept up and operating under the budget they have and improvement's are going on all the time. This park is a good spot to go biking and bird watching with a few really good places to eat on the island and history all around you on and off the island. I am in no way affiliated with the CG but I do know Jekyll pretty well. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at the Driftwood Bistro. Biking on over 22 miles of paved trails. Riding bikes on the beach when the tide is out.

Sandy sites and dusty roads that are wet down with oily water regularly. This causes oil and grit to collect in your RV. The setting is nice and the location can't be topped. But, not a place I would want to stay for very long (fighting the dirt and oil gets old very fast). However, if you want to stay on Jekyll Island, it is the only game in town. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of bike trails and hiking trails.

This is a state park, which we were happy to find would accommodate our coach and had full hook-ups. Park is very wooded with lovely live oaks, dripping with moss. The park is very tight getting into site, but trees are far enough from coach to accommodate our slides. Cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Beach is just a short drive from park. There is a small IGA grocery on the island but would need a trip off island for something larger. Entrance fee for island was $10 for coach. Daily fees for car to come and go is $6. We would stay here again. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Only game in town. Very crowded sites and lots of them. Was a mess when we were here because of lots of rain. The office staff wasn't the friendliest. Showers had tons of pressure and volume and were clean, but are ancient, and that's no understatement! Not much to do on the island, so I can't see us ever coming back We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place on a beautiful quiet island! Our site (F11) was perfectly level, packed dirt with pine needles, convenient to restrooms, trash and wifi and a good size to park the RV, rental car and the rental red bug gem car we rented for touring the island and still allow room for the awning and camp fire. There are trees everywhere - tall huge beautiful live oaks and pines - enjoy them! Wifi and Cable worked great. It's the only campground on the island and it was good. They have a bird sanctuary area which my husband enjoyed and he saw a "lifetime" first bird there - the painted bunting. There are lots of squirrel, some raccoons and deer in the area. Friendly staff, souvenirs and limited supplies available. Showers were ok. The roads are small but adequate. There's a $7 charge to book online. We would definitely go back... and want to... NOW! We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

We had stayed here a couple of years ago, and if anything, the place got better. The cable TV was clear and steady, and the WiFi is excellent. Everything is very clean, well kept, and the staff is most helpful. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because some of the turns are pretty tight for a larger unit due to the trees. We will definitely go back, as we love Jekyll Island. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Enjoyed Jekyll Island campground. Stayed a full week while exploring the area. Sights can be somewhat difficult to get in, they are arranged around trees. The free WiFi is excellent, which for a state park was a surprise. If you are a bike rider, this is the place to be. Terrific bike trails! The park provides cable. Due to the trees, no satellite reception. Will enjoy coming back! We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed the campground. With the large number of old trees, the campground is fully shaded. Site material is dirt with a large amount of leaves on top. Our site was spacious and level. Cable worked well. Water pressure was good and we had no problem with the 30 amp service. The store has propane, ice and a small amount of supplies. The rent bikes if you do not bring your own. You will want them to explore the miles of paved bike paths that traverse the island. AT&T cell service was good and campground WiFi worked without a problem. The only problem we had during our stay was it was at the time when the oak trees were dropping seeds. This was extremely messy and meant a constant cleaning of the awning and sweeping inside. Overall, a great place that we will probably return to. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This review may be influenced by the fact that it rained every day we were on Jekyll Island. We were totally underwhelmed by this campground. The sites were one on top of the other, the roads were sandy soil and dead leaves. The bathrooms and showers were moderately clean but ancient. Some of the washers and dryers worked. The Wi-Fi did work. There's no place to walk a dog. It seems that the State of Georgia has made no improvements here since it purchased the Island. But they are the only show in town. We would not return. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are here as "winter guests" . We arrived January 19 and will leave March 1. Some of the sites are small, but there are also large pull throughs. The roads are narrow and tree lined. I had no trouble negotiating them to our site with a 38 foot RV and toad. They have shower houses, a laundry, community room and General Store. There are bikes for rent. They sell propane and there is free cable and WiFi. The campground is located on the North end of the island in a grove of live oaks and southern pine. We have seen wildlife every day, mostly deer and raccoon. We did spot a gray fox one night in the bird sanctuary. There are paved bike trails all around the island and through the marshes. We watched the dolphins play at the fishing pier nearby. Jekyll Island is an awesome place to visit and the campground staff is phenomenal. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground seems to be filled with Northerners who enjoy the Georgia weather for their winter stay. Many of the campers are there for long stays. This campground is all dirt and heavily shaded. No satellite, but they have cable and Wi-Fi. Bicyle trails are all over the island and a fishing pier is less than a mile away. Interesting history museum and tour is available nearby. Trees are dangerously close getting in and out! We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. We had s pull through end site so it was easy in and out. Sites are dirt so you might want to use outside rugs. All hookups worked well, including cable and free Wi-Fi. Only real complaint is you have to pay each time you cross the bridge onto island. Great island for riding bicycles. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Large sites. Hard packed sand. Easy in-easy out. Very friendly staff. Jekyll is a great place to be with wonderful beaches, lots of history. Rate was for a full month stay. All services, including cable TV worked fine. Would definitely return. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.
