Stopped here on our way home from Orlando so the kids could see and hang out at the beach for the evening before our final leg home. They had a 2 night minimum but we went ahead and paid for the two nights because of the location. We were told it was a 1/4 mile walk directly to the beach and thought it would be a relaxing stop. We were wrong. Everything went wrong starting from entering the island. The road was closed with no detour signs or heads-up from the front desk and had to try and turn around a 37' foot camper. After an hour of driving out of our way we finally got to campground to be completely underwhelmed. It was very dirty, cramped, and noisy, with no pool or playground and no direct access to beach. We payed more for the pull-through so we didn't have to disconnect and we ended up having to because we had to drive about 15 minutes to get the the beach. The beach was horrible. I have never seen such dirty murky ocean water anywhere on the east coast. I was so upset with the location, etc. that I went to go see about a refund and found out the store was closed at 6 PM on a Saturday. Needless to say we left disappointed and out $90 ($42 per night plus $6 entrance fee to the island). Oh, also someone stole my husband's brand new $350 phone from the picnic table in front of camper (I was able to track it by gps going down the highway). There is nothing appealing about this island. Don't stay here. You would be better off at a Walmart parking lot. At least you wouldn't get covered in dirt. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Eat at Driftwood Bstro. Try shrimp and grits. All desserts are delicious! Driftwood Beach very pretty spot. Eat at Southern Soul on St. Simon's. Go for prime rib on Friday. Get the "generous cut" dinner. Delicious! Go early. They run out. Great biking on Jekyll Island!

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. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring your bikes. There are bike paths everywhere and everything is flat. You can also rent an electric mini car on the island. I saw several people using them but I didn't inquire as to the cost. There are a lot of ticks. We pulled 5 off of our dog during our 3 day stay.

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. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small private campground that has a casual family feel to it. There were no permanent residents that I could identify but there were plenty of people who were there for long stays and fixed up their sites to be quite homey. Given the season Christmas decorations were abundant. I liked it but some might not because it was quite cluttered, not clean and neat.

The restrooms were clean but women's restroom near the front where the activity center is had a horrific sewage smell the entire time we were there. We just used the other facility.

The sites and interior roads are dirt, sand, and leaves. It is pretty messy but we were able to keep things clean enough. There is hardly room for parking a second vehicle so we parked on the other side of the road.

Riverview drive has many trees that do not provide 12.5 feet of clearance if you maintain your lane. If it has rained the trees are even lower because of all the spanish moss. Driving back to the park was a challenge and I was grateful that there was very little traffic.

The park is big rig friendly but it is tight as are many parks. I would say Riverview drive is not big rig friendly. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The historic district is a must see.

Drift wood beach (actually dead trees not drift wood) and the trails around it are worth a visit/walk/bike ride.

Jekyll Island has some great bike trails including an excellent trail from the campground to the historic district.

We had stayed here a couple times in a tent about 10 years ago so we were excited to try out the campground with our new travel trailer. We had preferred to stay towards the back but the site we had originally reserved for our popup wasn't large enough for a 30' TT. Thankfully they had one site available!

We stayed at E5, right across from the bathrooms/laundry facilities. I was initially put off by this but honestly it proved to be a good location. Although it was on the main thoroughfare the traffic wasn't bad or loud and it was VERY nice to be able to let the kids run right over for a shower or to go to the bathroom. I would probably stay in group F if I was staying again.

The check-in was timely. Arrived around 3. Our particular site was pretty easy to back up into, but I watched a 5er try to back into E6 for over 20 minutes until they finally gave up. Some sites are larger than others for sure. The site itself was fairly large for this campground, but itty bitty compared to a state park. They are stacked up pretty well in this campground. It was a very dirty site. Now, I understand a lot of sites are dirt, this just seemed dirty.

Pros: beautiful Spanish moss everywhere. Nice place for the kids to ride their bikes. Great location to Driftwood Beach (about 1/4 mile) and the pier. Has laundry facilities.

Cons: Dark and dirty. Bathrooms were so/so (old, needed updating, kind of dirty though they did clean them each day). BUGS!!! I've seen mosquitoes....these are a different breed! Bring lots of OFF (it's $9-12 on the island compared to $4 at Target on the mainland)

Definitely visit Driftwood Beach at both high and low tide. Watch a sunset at the pier. Probably won't be back for 10 years, but it's a unique experience. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A lot of full timers, or at least long term. Packed earth sites, mostly level. Whole place just looked cluttered and messy. Not a bad place, just not a place I want to return to. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here about a year ago, and it was great then and even better now. The sites are good sized, with lots of fully mature trees. It can be a little challenging getting around the trees and on to the sites, but well worth it. This has become one of our favorite parks. The staff is friendly and helpful when needed. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Jekyl Island is a state park that is sustained solely by user fees. There is a toll to get onto the island which is not horrific but must be paid each time you enter. The campground is excellent. Our first site rather close to the next unit however due to an extension to our stay we were moved to a really more secluded site that was just great. The staff is very competent and friendly. When we arrived we were escorted to our campsite by the host. Don't miss if you are in the area.Jekyl Island itself is full of history with restored building and main area. Strongly suggest taking a Segway tour. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The beach is nice but the water muddy due to it's proximity to the fresh water tributaries entering nearby. Dining on the island is reasonable and excellent. The Driftwood Bistro at the Villas, Latitude 31 and the RAH Bar are recommended. Do not miss ordering a shrimp dish. Jekyl Island shrimp are fresh and sweet. There are also 63 holes of golf on three courses if you are into that. Kayaking is also another option.

Jekyll Island CG can be great or it can be miserable, depending on the circumstances. We've stayed here a half-dozen times, usually with good results. This time, however, it was miserable. The mosquitos were horrendous. You could not leave your RV to walk or sit outside without being attacked every second that you were outside. If the nightly spraying was doing any good, we could not tell it. Once you got out of the campground, things seemed fine. Walking on the beach was very enjoyable. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground feels more like a state park with lots of trees and leaves. Despite the number of rigs parked here, it was quiet at night - at least during the week when we were here. Even though the site was a pull-through, I had to disconnect the toad at the entrance, because the roads are narrow with some huge trees that I did not want to meet. The area is currently under a high pressure with high heat and lack of rain, but that is typical for this time of year in the South. The campground is convenient to the Historic District of Jekyll Island, which we plan to explore today. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground on Jekyll Island. Large sites for RVs. We camped in a tent, right across from the Bird Sanctuary. which was beautiful by day, but loud first thing in the morning. Staff was nice and friendly. Camp store was a little sparse, so get what you need before you come to the island. They sell firewood by the piece! A short bike ride to Driftwood Beach and the ocean. I plan to go back with my family and my trailer next time! We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Tent.

We have been coming to this campground for years. Campground is very shaded and the interior roads are packed earth. Lots of trees but no problems if you just take your time. All hook-ups worked as they were supposed to do. It was very hot and dry while we were there and only rained one afternoon. Bugs were barely noticeable. Bath houses were kept clean and supplied. Staff in office when we checked in were very nice and polite. I had some interactions with camps hosts and staff and they all were pleasant and helpful. We had site C-19 and were satisfied with the amount of room we had. It was a little tricky backing into it as there were a couple of large trees I had to ease between, but this was no problem. Overall the campground was clean and in good repair. The park staff were out and about everyday cleaning and doing normal maintenance. Regardless of any negative comments some make, Jekyll is a great park and is doing better everytime we go. We will be back soon. Great bike trails and with the new shopping area coming on line at the Convention Center, and beaches, etc., it is great to us. Camp store could stand to add more items that are commonly needed when camping. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Rent a golf cart from RED BUG Motors and tour the island that way, very enjoyable. It is a fun way to see things, especially the wildlife. Also the new shopping area at the Convention Center is rapidly filling the spaces, very nice. There is a nice grocery store there that can supply most grocery needs. Also there is an adult beverage store if you indulge. The RAH Bar has great food as do others on the island.

Very dirty camp ground. Lots are extremely close together and nothing but dirt, camper gets full of dirt. Trees are in bad need of pruning, and are dense and so overgrown. Desk staff are not friendly at all, in fact very rude. They could do with some training on manners and how to get the customers. Most campers' RVs are extremely dirty, worse than a trailer park. Will NOT stay here again unless some major changes are made. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice Island but the camp ground makes it look trashy. They need to clean it up and trim those trees a little. Full of dead branches hanging, could damage your camper.
