This is our campground of choice when visiting family in Jacksonville. With the live oaks, palm trees and palmettos, it’s like living in a tropical jungle. The roads are paved, campsites are sand. This 300-site campground is part of a beautiful park along the ocean; only campers are given the code into the campground. Some campsites are adjacent to a lake. Weekends can be noisy. Mosquitoes are bad in summer. We don’t have pets and don’t stay for more than 2 weeks so don’t have a problem with campground restrictions.
We stay here when the very popular Anastasia State Park is full. The hosts are accommodating, and cable TV and WiFi are included, although WiFi can be intermittent depending on campsite location. Most of the roads and all the sites are sand/gravel. Large oak trees shade some sites. It can be noisy near the highway (SR 207) and on motorcycle weekends.
This is a lovely, hilly, wooded campground with good spacing between level sites. Some sites are on the creek, some are on the lake, and some are “just” in the woods. We love it when deer come up to our campsite. Usually we overnight here on our way from North Carolina to Florida but have on occasion stayed several nights to explore historic towns in the area: Rutledge, Madison, and Eatonton. Price is for seniors with Georgia State Park pass and includes an extra $1 for cable TV.
This lovely, hilly campground is convenient for us to overnight as we travel Hwy 441 between Florida and North Carolina. Follow the signs for check-in: sometimes we’ve been directed to the campground, and other times to the park’s lodge. There are paved roads and gravel campsites; many of the pull-through campsites are not level for a 32’ motorhome with toad, but spacing is good. Cable TV is included, with lots of channels. There are large trees in the campground, though not all campsites are shaded during the hot summer months. The lake, adjacent to the campground, is temporarily closed; the drought of 2008 and 2009 caused an invasive aquatic vegetation problem in the lake. Price is for seniors with Georgia State Park pass.
Two years ago we made a reservation to stay here a week and ended up staying a month. We returned last summer and again this year. It’s a lovely, wooded RV park on a mountain just south of Franklin. Its location on Georgia Road (Hwy 23/441) makes it convenient to attractions, restaurants, and the town with its farmer’s market on Saturdays, farmer’s co-op on Wednesdays, and concerts on the square on Saturday evenings. Typical of most residential mountain communities in Franklin, the roads are single-lane. The Fire Dept. requires those in the RV park to be one-way. However, when you arrive, one of the owners will guide you most expeditiously to your site. If you happen to stay in 1 or 2 of the trickier sites, they will suggest you call them when you pull out. We saw one camper who didn’t, and he got woefully stuck. But that is the exception. People are friendly. Most of the seasonal residents are retirees, up from Florida. The bathrooms and Laundromat are clean. Some roads are paved, some are gravel; campsites are gravel. Some sites afford less space from neighbors than we prefer. Many sites include a deck. Has weekly and monthly rates.
