I loved this campground, stayed here for 9 days. Definitely Old Florida. Very quiet, not much to do. Right up my alley. Quite empty during the week, but it filled right up on the weekend. All sites were spacious. There are a few smaller sites but no 'bad' sites. We stayed at site 22 that was very private, but there were many sites that was very nice and I would of been happy at. It is down a 2 mile dirt road into the state park which does get large puddles when it rains. There is a boat ramp in the state park portion along with picnic tables. No playground in the campground. Does have a 1/2 mile nature trail which was nice and it seems to be set up for nature talks. Certainly will stay here again next year. Bathrooms were on the older side but clean. We had a night time raccoon visit when I left a bag of popcorn out on the lounge chair by mistake. St.Augustine is a lovely walking town. Lots to do and see there. They have found a return customer with us as we visit relatives in the area.
I was very impressed how immaculate this campground was. It is built into a mountain so it is very steep in tiers. I could see some big rigs having some issues especially if it was wet. Campground was very big rig friendly other then the steeper sites I would think. We stayed in the B section. Wi-Fi is in only section E and F (which I assume is the office). I did get sporadic Wi-Fi though. Sites were roomy and I felt very comfortable here. There is a gate with a number access code all the time not just after hours. There are only 2 bathrooms which could be a hike for some. I assume it being very big rig friendly that most use their place for bathroom and showering as sewer is available on all sites. The camp store didn't have any 'camping' supplies if one forgot toothpaste or hot dog rolls. It just had t-shirts and souvenirs. Would rather have just a regular camp store. I would definitely return and probably will next year.
I am usually flexible when it comes to different campgrounds. Some great, some not but I usually try to adjust. I have to say that this time I just couldn't get past that unsettled feeling. It was quite empty of any regular campers other then seasonals. I understand October does get slow once the weather gets chillier and the kids in school. It was just unsettling as I found the place rather 'sloppy' for a campground. Sites were lacking numbers and I had trouble finding the water spigot to attach to the camper for it only to be a hose not attached to anything on the ground under the dried leaves and brush. I think it may have been originally screwed onto a board as the other sites had but didn't see anything around. Took a walk as I usually do once we get settled to see 5 empty beer cans and 1 bottle thrown off to the side in different areas. The young girl at the office was very friendly but found everyone else not. None said hello, waved or even gave eye contact of any sort. Did not have a fire ring or picnic table at the site even though we didn't plan on using one because we were leaving in the morning. The campground looked like it would have great potential and maybe its better at the height of the season but I have to say that.I wasn't feeling very comfortable here. They also just accept cash. No credit cards. I wish I have been told that upon making reservations, but I was not. I feel bad giving such a poor review. Wish I could of truthfully done better.
